Life as INTJ: Read, Archive

There are some days when I don’t feel like talking or interact with anyone except family and ka Emil. Then I think how to make myself feel better. It turns out that archiving chats can do that. I feel less overwhelming. No, I never have hundred or thousand chat notification haha. However, as an introvert, sometimes looking at too many chats (even the read ones) overwhelms me. Having too many chats on a chat list is like being in a crowded room even though I’m talking to no one.

Based on this psychology junkie article (https://www.psychologyjunkie.com/2016/08/09/12-stress-busting-techniques-intjs/) “Too much noise or sensory input” is one of the things that cause stress to INTJ. I consider the crowded room metaphor too much noise. LOL.

I know this sounds weird. Nonetheless, it works for me haha.

This is what’s left on my WhatsApp after I archived other messages. I did this to my Line, too, which most of its chats are from official/promo account LOL.

Writing On The Train

Hi guys, I know it’s been long since my last post. I still learn to manage my life, develop daily routines, etc. Life has been a bit busy. This post might not be as positive or exciting as I hope it to be. However, I really miss writing my blog. So yeah.. here’s some stories..

Yesterday, I went to Jakarta for a personal matter. I left from Bandung at 6.45 a.m. Arrived at Jakarta around 10.30 a.m. Then I got some brunch (an excuse for not making time to eat breakfast before left). Finished my personal matter at 4 p.m. then left for travel pool. The booking slots for that afternoon wert full. Luckily, I had booked my seat so, even though I didn’t get the earlier travel, I still had my 5.45 p.m travel. Traffic jam as usual. Arrived at Bandung at 11 p.m then there were traffic jam again in the city which made me wonder why that’s happen. Haha what can i do. Arrived at Bandung pool at 11.45 p.m. Luckily again I have my dearest boyfriend who waited for me and picked me up at pool 💕. 

Then I slept at around 2 a.m. this morning to wake up again in the morning to pray and get ready to work. Sleepy and hungry. I didn’t get chance to eat properly for dinner, only bought a snack in rest area. Lazily, I ate granola + milk this morning, in my bed. Then I got ready for work. Worked. Went to train station in the middle of drizzle. I supposed to be sleeping right now in the train since I have been sleepy today at work. I could not sleep now. I suspected this because of my head was filled with many thoughts. So, I wrote this.

I enjoyed these 2 days. These days have been an eye opening experience for me. It made me realize more about what I want, what i don’t like, what have I achieved, received, what have changed for the last year. Things have been greater than I expected a year ago. One thing that I (again) realize is that I cannot imagine myself living day by day for some years in Jakarta. I think I have been adapted well to Bandung haha #notjakartansmaterial

Monday Travel After A Long Weekend

Some things are predictable.

Like this Monday morning, all travel providers (to Bandung) in my city for morning travel are most likely to be full-booked. Long weekend, more people go home. Tickets are selling fast. With that prediction, we need to book our seat earlier than usual or we won’t get a seat in a desirable schedule. 
If you know you need to go to Bandung from my city, Bekasi, for work and arrive there before 10 a.m., then travel schedule after 6 a.m. won’t work. Knowing that, I can book a seat in last Monday when other people have not made their booking yet.
