Concrete Jungle | SoSonia

July 24, 2019 posted by



Journal Entry # 2 So I live in Jacarda, Indonesia, which means a lot of traffic, motorbikes, trash, cars, pollution, and the constant lack of fresh air. It's an extremely populated concrete jungle, that I am constantly feeling trapped in, surrounded by all the trash… the trash and the trash. BUT okay, enough sadness. I know this video has had a lot of mood swings so far, but I've got to hide a moral
somewhere in here. It's time to find the jungle, in the concrete. Despite what I said earlier, the city can always be viewed as an art show, and I'm tired of looking at my art show from my car window. (music playing and sound of rain) We have the humans
who can't seem to stop smiling. We have the animals, the nature, the art, the community, and the life. I now see the green over the gray, in my home.

    Her videos and her remind me so much of Me Earl and the Dying girl. Like her whole personality and the personality of the videos is just so similar to the beautiful feeling that movie gives you. Love her

    As for someone who's been living in this crowded and chaotic city i tend to forget to find the beauty within. So i decided to explore Jakarta a bit more and i got myself lost in its beauty by wandering around with no destination instead of bitching about the traffic in the car 🙂

    Nice! The green is stronger than the grey, maybe because your eyes are green? But why the grey is doing so well? The tomorrow`s soul is losing his colour… But we`ll always have green, sort of..
