Have you ever feel that the only person you have is you yourself?
Maybe that's the reason why I prefer to be friends with myself: Rintis Mulyani is friends with Rintis Mulyani. I like to pass the time by reading the beginning. In the past, whenever people asked me what I was doing, my answer didn't change much: sitting down. I really like reading books and letting my mind wander to places I haven't even been able to go to until now. Not only traveling through space, reading also allows me to trace life in the past even thousands of years ago. From there I rethink what happened in my life and what I want in life.
One of my greatest desires is to be able to continue reading and moving forward with it. Because of this I realized, I need to write to be able to see my journey: is it forward, backward, or stagnant?
Actually this blog is not my main medium in writing because it is less interactive. I publish my various short articles more often on Instagram Stories so that I can more easily interact with people who respond. Usually people will respond if my writings are opinions on sensitive issues. In fact, I'm trying to talk less about sensitive issues in the public area because the audience on my social media is very diverse. After all, my purpose in writing is not merely to make opinions that may be unusual. I prefer to present stories that make people feel: sad, disappointed, angry, disgusted, and so on. But yeah other people's emotions aren't something I can control, right?
I graduated with a bachelor's degree in psychology and a master's in communication science. I got these two degrees from the University of Indonesia, the university that I love the most. In the professional realm, I often talk about these two disciplines, often in seminars or talk shows. But I don't present it explicitly in writing because I'm still practicing to present science in the form of a good story. Right now my writing is mostly storytelling, but I hope you will follow my writing journey until I can explicitly bring science into it.
