Self Relieve

Really, it sure fells good whenever you get your creativity back. I'm not that creative but knowing that I have done something to refresh my brain, which is going to explode soon, makes me good. Life's been hectic this month. Geez! One thing that I've been doing this month ( still continues btw ) is CIRCLING THE LJK (Lembar Jawaban Komputer or Computer-based answer sheet). Can you imagine how kewl is that?

Well back to the topic, yesterday I just drew two 'serious' sketches; first is some kind of land with several oaks, and the second one is, it's rather special, because it's my role model's portrait sketch! Yes, she's Cassandra Niki!

zoom, baby, zoom!

I drew this sketch as a gratitude for her sending me a copy of her newest and very first novel, "Letters, Stories and Dreams". Me really glad to received your awesome novel, Thank you again!
What do you think about the portrait? Does it look alike with the original photo? I got some troubles at her lips, but I think it's okay.

Another things; last week I had had the National Examination! I did go well, I hope all of the Cendana Senior Hi students pass it! Amin! Oh and also, please pray for me so I pass Bandung Institute of Technology's entrance test. I really wish that I can get in :(

Everyone, thank you for reading my oh-not-so blog until now! I really appreciate it! Don't forget to comment also, Ciao!

Letters, Stories and Dreams by Cassandra Niki

If you are one of those bloggers out there, you should have known Cassandra Niki. A genius photographer who turns out to be a writer had launched her very first book! Introducing; Letters, Stories, and Dreams.

This novel contains many stories and life experiences packaged in an interesting and youthful book. The use of language and also the storyline are very easy to understand even if you're not her blog reader. Even we, her loyal readers, will know more details about the things that she had written on her blog.

So, what is the point of this novel? Of course, the dilemma of youth’s love life (haha blame my language). How her life and her love life with her boyfriend Jonas is the main story of this novel. But personally I would consider this novel contains her love fight for her mate!

For me, the best part of that novel is all of them! I really mean it! I love the way Cassey arranges the storyline, her dreams, and also her love letter to Jonas; to start and to end their relationship. If some people say “letter is so last year”, I bet they won’t say that again after reading her sentimental letters.

The negative side would be, like, it’s still not enough! Last part of the novel is hanging and it makes me curious about the rest of it even though her novel is over. Furthermore, it took only three hours for me to finish this book. It means ... I'll be waiting for your next book, Cass!

C’mon people grab it fast! I’m expecting this book will be best seller sooner!
