SUM IT UP

One of the worst tasks I know I suck at is making a summary. There are several reasons why I hate summing up points:
1.) I don't like details, but in good stories, they are the soul, the core, the things that create goose at your back as if you were high and sitting beside someone you really like. So when you try to make summary out of good stories, it seems you sacrifice the soul and lose the enchanting details that should never be skipped.
2.) I know, without synopsis on the back of the cover of a book, no one would probably get interested to flip through the pages, but synopsis is a different story. It is a commersialised summary, I think, made to attract readers by putting up the strongest details or certain part of the story, but kept hanging and swinging so as to make the potential readers guessing and in the end, aroused to read the book.
3.) To make summary out of bad stories is even worse. Depending, of course, on how bad it is and how you rate bad stories 'bad'. If it is unbearable, dull, and able to bore you to death, how can you even make the summary? How do you decide which part is important to be put up, which points are relevant, which subject you are talking about?

Okay, so the three points above are enough for you to conclude how bad I am at hating summaries. Best part is : I'll just let the above pictures do the part. I summarised my last stay in Jkt. The worst part? I'm bad at picking up the important pictures, as well.


(PS. I'm always on twitter and I made an account on formspring! And dot get fooled, I don't really play guitar. Someone knows it really well :)
