Selamat Pagi, Siang, Petang, Malam!

Saya namanya Ramadhan Putera Djaffri. Sekarang bekerja di Samuel Aset Manajemen. Sebelumnya berkuliah di Fakultas Ekonomi Universitas Indonesia, menempuh pendidikan IPS di SMA Labschool Kebayoran, pulang-pergi naik sepeda saat bersekolah di SMP Al-Azhar 8 Kemang Pratama, seorang anak jemputan saat belajar di SD Bani Saleh 1, dan pernah dihajar rantai sepeda motor saat menghabiskan masa balita di TK Mini Pak Kasur.

Segala tulisan di Volgorian Cabalsette ini seharusnya sih hasil kreasi saya, kecuali yang saya sebutkan sumber lainnya. Karena itu saya harap Anda juga bisa menghormati dan selalu meminta izin atau setidaknya memberi saya kredit tiap kali mengutip. Ayo hindari plagiarisme sejak mula!

Soal sejarahnya sendiri, yang bisa saya ingat ada tiga semboyan Volgorian Cabalsette hingga kini. Pertama adalah "The Safest Place On Earth" yang sekarang jadi milik Volgorian Nopales. Kedua adalah "Berpikir Subjektif Tidak Membantu", yang kemudian berevolusi menjadi "Pemikiran, Ucapan, Tindakan" karena menurut saya tanpa aksi tidak ada realisasi.

Pun setelah sekian lama menggunakan semboyan ketiga, nampaknya saya harus kembali kepada semboyan kedua, karena lebih orisinil dan lebih saya. Terlebih lagi setelah semboyan itu sempat disebut-sebut kembali oleh rekan seperti Mirza dan Aditya.

Lainnya, saya akan sangat bahagia jika Anda memberi donasi uang kepada saya. Tidak bersedia? Kalau sekadar kesan, pesan, komentar, keluhan, cacian, dan makian mau kan? Tidak perlu banyak, saya hanya ingin tahu apakah memang ada yang membaca.

Terima kasih telah berkunjung. Nikmati dunia saya!

Thursday: If I Ever Feel Better

"Hey!"

Martha turned back without stopping her steps. You know what will happen when you move forward, but keep looking behind? You won't be able to see whatever's coming your way. And so she did.

"Where am I?"

"Bonjour. Square one. Heh."

"What happened?"

"I believe he could give you the complete story. Don't forget to thank him, or, well, slap him. Heh."

Well thanks aplenty, Vince.

"So, you?" Martha asked.

"I'm Ben."

"Okay, Ben. I'm..."

"I know. Martha, no?"

"I guess my reputation preceded me. Do you mind sharing the story?"

"Not at all. You thumped this big guy, Ted, on the pavement outside. You were looking back while walking quickly forward because I yelled at you, so.. I'm kind of guilty here. All apologies."

"And why were you yelling at me back then?"

God, this girl is good.

"Well, I..."

"Was looking for a perfect time to get to know me, and finally the time came, but you hesitate and have to catch me in front of the store?" She smiled.

"I didn't hesitate. You just walked out too fast." I'm weirdly relieved.

She chuckled.

"Well then, Ben. I guess you're also the one who brought me back here, yes?"

"Of course not. It was Ted. And it's not because you're heavy or anything, it's just..."

"Thank you, Ben. I owe you one."

Thursday, I owe you one.

"So. If I ever feel better, remind me to spend some good time with you."

"You can give me your number. When it's all over I'll let you know."

"Phoenix." She grinned.

"The greatest band on earth." I went to heaven.

Thursday, I owe you one hundred.



P.S. There was no such thing like Ted. But I guess you already know that, no? :)
