Follow Your Brain, Sometimes Your Heart is a Little Bit Stupid

Have you ever read or listen about brain and heart?
Have you ever read or listen about mind and feeling?
If you never talk about relation between them, let me help you to figure out.

Nothing ever happens without a reason.
But if you find yourself  dying into place you've never seen before, you have to figure it out.
It is your heart.
It'll drop your body.
It'll drop your logic.
It'll drop everything you have.
You want to jump into black hole that would make you die.
You want to do something beyond your control.
You want to do silly things that will make people talk about you.
It is your heart.
Heart does not think. It just feels.

But, God is good.
God created human perfectly.
God created you perfectly.
You were given a brain.
You were given a mind.
Brain does everything good.
Brain helps you.
Brain knows what is good and what is not.
Brain knows you deserve better.
Brain knows you need help when you are tired with your life.
Brain will make you to do something that makes sense.
Brain is good.
Brain is smart.
And brain heals your wound(s).

I wasn't just talking about love, but about life. Life as a whole.
People say that you should always listen to your heart. Well, that's true.
But, are you sure your heart doesn't need your mind?

When you fall in love with someone who won't fight for you, will you still love him/her?
I think that's stupid.
Your brain isn't doing what supposed to do.

If you love your job in company that makes you lose sleep and time for your family, will you still work there?
I think that's stupid.
Your brain isn't working properly. 

So, what's the point?
Please, follow your brain because sometimes your heart doesn't know what your deserve.
I don't blame heart, I just know that your heart did everything good and for a good cause, too.
But, you still have a smart brain.
Let your brain think.
Let your brain make sense.
It'll always do the best.
To prevent your heart from doing something stupid and dying because of someone or something that doesn't make you feel good.
Please listen to your heart because it knows what you want, but still follow your brain because it knows what you need.
And then, everything will be good in the end.

BEST PLAYLIST 2016 | #1 ODESZA



So grateful to come back with my blog, after long time. How are you, everybody? Still fine, right?
Before I talk about my post, I want to say HAPPY NEW YEAR 2016! Welcome to great leap year.
And, here it is. For 2016, there is something different with my blog because I'll add something new. Beside fashion or outfit,  I will share about MUSIC. Do you love music? I'm sure that everybody loves music. I guarantee people always be accompanied by music in their whole life. Some activities need music to increase their productivity. 

Well,at the first time in 2016, I'll write about my best playlist in 2016 for some posts. For the beginner, I shared ODESZA as my newest playlist in 2016. Who is ODESZA? Quoted from Wikipedia, ODESZA (stylized as ODESZA) are an American electronic music duo from Seattle consisting of Harrison Mills (CatacombKid) and Clayton Knight (BeachesBeaches). The group was formed in 2012 shortly before Mills and Knight graduated from Western Washington University. Their debut album, Summer's Gone, was released in 2012 to much acclaim in the underground electronic music community. ODESZA followed Summer's Gone with their first EP, My Friends Never Die, in 2013 and their second LP, In Return, in 2014. The duo released In Return (Deluxe Edition) on September 18, 2015 via Counter Records, an extended version of the original album plus three live recordings all featuring a horn section, instrumentals, and a new track “Light (feat. Little Dragon)”. On December 7th, 2015, ODESZA’s “Say My Name (RAC Remix)” was nominated for the Best Remixed Recording Grammy.






Why I chose ODESZA and put it to my playlist for 2016? Actually,  I really like EDM since I was a child. My father taught me to listen Trance music (which is one of genre in EDM) when I was in Junior High School. Year after year, EDM growth and there are DJs from some underground electronic music dance. One of them is ODESZA who striking new voice in EDM. At the first time I listen it, I instantly fell in love with this deep and chill instrument. Great songs!



My favorite songs in ODESZA are Say My Name, It's Only, Bloom (from In Return album, 2014), and IPlayYouListen (from Summer's Gone album, 2012). But, overall, ODESZA makes me feel the chemistry of music. I listen ODESZA, and I'll imagine what a wonderful my life! If you want feel dynamic vibe with positive rhythm, please listen to ODESZA!
