Book of Rafly — A bit of thought, ideas, and more. 

Hi, there. Thanks for taking the time. Welcome to the online collection of my opinion. Here are the boring tidbits: I’m a current journalism student at Babes-Bolyai University in Cluj-Napoca, Romania, under the government’s scholarship and I am planning to specialize in politics and investigative journalism. After all, we all gotta start somewhere, no?

I started Book of Rafly in 2019 during the lowest point of my life as a coping mechanism. It’s low-cost and easily accessible. Hailing from the polluted city of Jakarta where everyone is busy in their own thoughts, I was an underdog who wanted to scream. I wanted to be heard. I wanted to have a voice. I wanted to break free. I wanted to trigger thoughts. I wanted to provoke the taboos. I wanted to be me and I see writing as a therapeutic method that gets me closer to it. I wanted to be me, and the way words intertwine with one another is eloquent. 

When you’re writing, you sit down anywhere in the world with just yourself and your pen or keyboard, and nothing else matters. This is the truth of yours, and I think that’s the most wonderful thing in the world. 

I mostly write about things that I, personally, am passionate about, whether that be current tunes I’m listening to, books I’m digging into, recent researches that blow my mind, opinions on things that I need to get out of my chest, anything. There’s no exact niche to it: it’s just me and my thoughts on things that I think matter. 

Welcome again, to the online collection of me. I hope you enjoy your stay 🙂 

With love,
