(500) days of Summer

Posted on 3 Januari 2010


This is a story of boy meets girl. The boy, Tom Hansen of Margate, New Jersey, grew up believing that he’d never truly be happy until the day he met the one. This belief stemmed from early exposure to sad British pop music and a total mis-reading of the movie ‘The Graduate’. The girl, Summer Finn of Shinnecock, Michigan, did not share this belief. Since the disintegration of her parent’s marriage she’d only love two things. The first was her long dark hair. The second was how easily she could cut it off and not feel a thing. Tom meets Summer on January 8th. He knows almost immediately she is who he has been searching for. This is a story of boy meets girl, but you should know upfront, this is not a love story.


paragraf di atas adalah opening dari film (500) days of summer that i have just wachted twisce yesterday :). the movie is so nice.  special applause for the scene adegan menari/menyanyi di taman ala Enchanted, split screen yang menggambarkan harapan versus kenyataan dan adegan ketika Summer dan Tom bermain rumah-rumahan. hehehe

at that moment, aku merasa summer itu sifatnya mirip banget denganku :). berpikiran bebas, susah diatur, easy going, gak punya planning, en specially gak mau punya pacar. hahahaha, yes you can call me gak bisa commit. for instance, i made this blog many months ago, and i have just made i post. hahaha and at one moment, i thinked that the similarity between summer and me terjadi karena nama kita sama-sama diambil dari nama waktu/musim. hahahaha,,,, stupid!

but, by the time goes by, aku sadar baha aku harus berubah. hidup gak berguna kalo aku terus ber-easy going. i have to commint my plan, not just made it. dan awal tahun ini aku memutuskan untuk menjadi orang yang berkomitmen.
