Kalau Rezeki Gak Bakal ke Mana :)

Seperti biasa, hari ini saya berkeliaran di Twitter. Menyimak pembicaraan orang-orang di timeline. Bahkan terkadang "mengkepo" profile Twitter seseorang. Tiba-tiba ada tweet seperti ini di timeline saya :

Bagaimana reaksi Anda? Akuilah, sebagai manusia biasa yang tak sempurna, pasti niat (garis bawahi) untuk tidak mau memberitahu informasi itu kepada teman ada kan walau sedikit? Tweet ini benar-benar membuat saya tersentak dan sadar akan hal yang buruk ini. Saya pernah 'hampir' melakukan hal ini. Tidak mau berbagi informasi beasiswa dengan orang lain.

Saya ingat dengan peristiwa 2 tahun lalu. Di mana saya dan teman saya sama-sama berjuang untuk mendapatkan beasiswa SMA ke Singapore. Jadi, awalnya saya yang mengetahui informasi bahwa ASEAN membuka scholarship untuk lulusan SMP. Mulanya, saya berniat untuk diam-diam dan tidak memberitahu siapapun. Tapi, setelah mencoba berjuang sendirian mengisi formulir, rasanya hati ini gak tenang. Dan akhirnya, saya telepon teman saya untuk memberitahukan info itu. Kami pun saling mendiskusikan seputar beasiswa itu. Sampai-sampai deg-degan bareng nunggu pengumumannya. Namun sayang, kami berdua malah tak lolos ke tahap selanjutnya. Dan akhirnya saya tetap melanjutkan SMA di Jakarta *untunglah kami berdua gagal, kalo gak yang ada malah iri-irian satu sama lain *evil smirk* *

Nah, hal ini yang ingin saya bahas sekarang. Kenapa ya kita kadang-kadang jadi egois dan tidak mau berbagi info penting dengan orang lain?

cuman satu : takut kalah dengan teman

Menurut saya, mungkin inilah satu-satunya alasan utama kenapa kadang kita sulit berbagi dengan orang lain, dalam konteks ini adalah info beasiswa. Kita takut kalau kita kasih tau, nanti malah kita yang gagal, dan orang itu yang berhasil dapet beasiswa. Iya kan?

Kawan, hal ini juga yang pernah saya rasakan. Saya takut nanti malah saya yang gagal dan teman itu yang dapet beasiswa. Kita takut kalah dengan teman sendiri. Tapi, kita perlu buka mata. Saingan kita dalam mendapatkan beasiswa tidak cuman teman kita saja. Banyak sekali saingan yang mungkin lebih hebat daripada kita dan teman kita sendiri. Jadi, tidak mau berbagi info beasiswa dengan teman itu hal yang buruk. Bahkan kalau boleh saya bilang, orang yang suka memendam informasi beasiswa sendiri adalah orang yang serakah, pelit dan pengecut! Bisa saja kan, teman kita itu memang benar-benar ingin dan butuh beasiswa itu. Dan mungkin, siapa tau, sosok teman kita itulah yang memang dicari oleh badan penyelenggara beasiswa yang bersangkutan.

Dengan berbagi informasi beasiswa pada teman-teman, mungkin bisa jadi tambahan amunisi untuk semakin semangat berjuang dalam memperoleh beasiswa. Kenapa? Karena kita berjuang bersama-sama dan tentunya gak sendirian. Makin bagus kan kalau seandainya kita dan teman-teman sama-sama dapet beasiswa yang diinginkan!

Kemudian, gak perlu takut kalah dengan teman. Selama di bersekolah SMA saya yang sekarang, saya banyak belajar bahwa bersaing dengan teman itu memang perlu. Tapi.... bersainglah SECARA SEHAT dan FAIR. Percaya diri aja kalau kemampuan kita bisa lebih baik dari dia dan berjuang melakukan yang terbaik. Tapi, kalaupun pada akhirnya kamu harus "kalah", ya terima saja. Akui bahwa temanmu lebih baik daripada kamu. Sebagai teman, kita juga harus bisa tersenyum dan mendukung keberhasilannya. Kalau seorang teman kita sukses, kan kita juga yang senang. Bahkan kita bisa pamer dengan bangga kepada orang lain, lho!

Kita udah berbagi informasi dengan teman tentang beasiswa nih. Lalu, bagaimana kalau malah teman kalian yang dapet beasiswa? Tidak perlu iri, teman! Ini memang susah sih ya untuk dilakukan. Jujur saya sering merasa iri dengan teman-teman yang berhasil mendapatkan beasiswa untuk pergi ke luar negeri. Tapi, seiring berjalannya waktu. Saya sadar. Tuhan pasti punya rencana terbaik buat setiap anak-Nya. Dan rencana Tuhan itu akan indah pada waktunya. Selain itu, yang terpenting : kalau emang udah rezeki kita, ya gak bakal ke mana. Percaya deh! Sama aja kayak jodoh :) Kalau emang udah rezeki kita dan tentunya rencana Tuhan buat kita dapetin beasiswa itu, pastilah beasiswa itu di tangan!

Never give up ^^

Jadi intinya... tetap berbagi dengan teman ya :) Jangan gampang iri dengan keberhasilan orang lain, kalau udah rezeki ga bakal kemana! Tetap percaya diri dan semangat melakukan yang terbaik! Pasti kita bisa dapetin beasiswa :D

What's Going On, Johnny's Ent?

Well, I don't know what's going on with Johnnys lately. That company has been cursed, no? Just asking xD

First, Ryutaro's issue (6/28/2011)


Yesterday (after almost a day without Internet), I almost got a slight heart attack after knowing the news from my Twitter's timeline that Morimoto Ryutaro (Hey! Say! JUMP) caught smoking in a photo. Unfortunately, he's UNDERAGE. He's only 16 and the youngest in JUMP. At that time, I was like : "What the hell are you doing, Ryutaro? Are you stupid?" So, yesterday I was reading all the timeline tweets all day long. I also read tokyohive.com and arama@LJ for more information.

So, Ryutaro smokes. He has been smoking for a while. The photos (from Shukan Josei's magazine) show him smoking at the age of 14 or 15 -->
hmm, that's why he has a low voice. Well yeah, for the case like this, I have to say that Ryutaro is at fault. He couldn't blame no one, but himself. And now he has to face the consequence : suspended indefinitely from all JUMP's activities. For your information, after a Johnny's got suspended, usually it takes time to make him come back to his group. It will be very hard to come back to the spotlight .____. In other words, probably suspended means soft warning before he will be kicked out from Johnny's? I don't have any idea :(

I know, teenagers who start smoking at a young age may escalate in recent years, but as AN IDOL,
Ryutaro needs to open his eyes. He's an idol and he has a very big responsible to be a good example for other people, especially for those who adore him. You guys might not want people to say things like this : "You idolized a guy who smoke...?" That's why, I'M AGAINST PEOPLE WHO SMOKE. I HATE SMOKERS.

Before
Ryutaro, there were also Uchi & Kusano who caught drinking underage. They were 18 at that time. Uchi got back to be Junior and Kusano got back to be a trainee. And after a while, Kusano left Johnny's and until now Uchi didn't back either for NewS or Kanjani8 -____- And that will be happen to Ryutaro too. Ryutaro might not learn from his two senpai and now history repeats itself :( Poor boy. I just think he's not lucky. According to the source I've read, about 7 out of 10 member of JUMP has been smoking underage.

How on earth he could be so careless / reckless/ stupid? Life will never be the same for
Ryutaro. He ended up his career on entertainment just because of smoking. How ridiculous is that. He has to face the consequence : an indefinite suspended. Be it only for 5 months, be it forever. I don't care anymore about him *sorry Ryutaro's fans* It's his own fault.

Now,
HSJ is only a group with 9 people -_____- Lucky, Ryutaro is not my favorite in JUMP. Ryutaro even don't get my attention in every performance with JUMP. I myself have to say that it's not a big deal if Ryutaro kicked out from the group. There are so many choices : Johnny's can add Yuma to replace Ryutaro, right? In my opinion, it's the best choice so far. Moreover, NYC has been always together with JUMP (eg : in a concert).

What I learn from Ryutaro's issue :
-
Ryutaro has a pretty baby face you know. Who knows a cute boy like him would do such a bad thing like smoking while he's underage? Briefly, don't judge people by his/her looking. Pretty face doesn't mean he/she also good inside. Take that.

- More importantly, please:
DON'T SMOKE. Be it you are underage or not. It's TOTALLY NOT GOOD for your health. Towards other people, smokers might be a killer! So, I don't like people who smoke. They are better go to hell! Even if you are a good-looking person but if you're smoking, you look very very very ugly for me!

P.S :
Ryutaro, SMOKING DOESN'T MAKE YOU COOL.


Second, our miracle boy's issue (6/29/2011)

Masaki Aiba (Arashi) was hospitalised due to left spontaneous pneumothorax. And the doctor diagnosed that it needs one week hospitalised. OMG .____. Again, it was a shock for me. After Ryutaro, now Aiba. All of these makes me wonder : "What on earth is happen with Johnny's Entertainment?" Too many bad news from this agency in a very short gap of time.

Back to
Aiba's. Probably, it was the effect due to previous operation (Aiba once hospitalized in 2002 due to pneumothorax too). Plus, he and Arashi have been work very hard. On June 24-26, they held a charity concert called "Waku Waku Gakkou" in Tokyo Dome. That must be very tiring yet restless for them.

For those who have never heard what pneumothorax is :

- Pneumothorax basically refers to air in the pleural space, which is the tiny space between your lungs and the inside of your chest wall.
- It results from the rupture of small sub-pleural blebs (in other words, air blisters).
- The lung collapses when air enters that space, because what keeps it open and expanding is the tension between the surface of the lung and the chest wall (for a quick and easy analogy, imagine putting a glass on a small puddle of water on your table and moving it about a bit before trying to lift it up-- it would most likely feel like something is tugging at the glass and making it difficult to lift).
- The lung does not collapse entirely.
- Spontaneous pnemothorax mainly occurs in tall, thin men ages 20-40 years without any underlying disease factors. That means there's usually no reason as to why someone would get spontaneous pneumothorax (as suggested by the name itself).
- It is true that people who have had it once have an increased risk of a recurrence; another risk factor is cigarette smoking.
- The week long stay is probably just to keep him in the hospital for observation to see if the air in the pleural space will be absorbed by the blood stream, or try to reinflate the lung by non-surgical means.
- If the lung collapse is greater than 15-25%, they will put a chest tube in to suction the air and any accumulating fluids out. They do sometimes do surgical procedures for recurrent pneumothorax, but as his last case happened in 2002, it might not be of concern enough for them.

I hope
Aiba's condition is not too serious and he can recover soon. GET WELL SOON OUR MIRACLE BOY~~ Don't work too hard or think too much about your work and stuffs, people around you especially your FOUR BROTHERS and the Arashians top priority is your health :) I will miss your hyperness! Arashi, please take care of Aiba-chan!

Kiss~ Kaerimichi no Love Song

Currently fall in love with this song which is sung by Tegomass
I wonder if someone would sing this song for me :))

Pls read this translation below. It's just so sweet and nice neee :D

KISS~ Kaerimichi no Love Song
by Tegomass

The park belonging to the just two of us, reserved for us on the way home.
Watching you being more happy than usual, I asked:

"What would you do if the world disappears tomorrow?"
You didn't say anything and just held my arm tighter right?

Hey, look this way.
Our lips are too close, my heart wouldn't stop thumping.

No matter what you are, no matter when it is, I'll always catch hold of you so,
If your heart hurts and when your tears fall,
Even if all the world turns into enemies, I'll protect you.
I LOVE YOU Words are unnecessary.
You're my last kiss, forever.

The road where we always said goodbye, there's nothing I could do, I know.
You puff out your cheeks, let go of my hands and say "It's time to go."

Hey, look this way to me.
Our lips get closer, my heart wouldn't stop thumping.

Even if it's someone like me, I can get stronger if you're with me.
Love is a wondrous magic isn't it? I'm not afraid of anything so,
Even if all the world turns into enemies, I'll never let you go.
STAND BY ME It can't be just anyone.
I want to stay by you forever.

Ah~ with your innocently honest face you say:
"Hey, if I turn into a grandma, are you still going to kiss me?"
Hey, when that time comes, it's the same for me.
Our joint hands; I'll never let go of it so,

No matter who you are, no matter when it is, I'll always catch of you so,
If your heart hurts and when your tears fall,
Even if all the world turns into enemies, I'll protect you.
I LOVE YOU Words are unnecessary.
You're my last kiss, forever.

The Story of The Pencil

The Story Of The Pencil - Paulo Coelho


A boy was watching his grandmother write a letter. At one point, he asked:

"Are you writing a story about what we've done? Is it a story about me?"

His grandmother stopped writing her letter and said to her grandson:

"I am writing about you, actually, but more important than the words is the pencil I'm using. I hope you will be like this pencil when you grow up."

Intrigued, the boy looked at the pencil. It didn't seem very special.

"But it's just like any other pencil I've ever seen!"

"That depends on how you look at things. It has five qualities which, if you manage to hang on to them, will make you a person who is always at peace with the world.

First quality: you are capable of great things, but you must never forget that there is a hand guiding your steps. We call that hand God, and He always guides us according to His will.

Second quality: now and then, I have to stop writing and use a sharpener. That makes the pencil suffer a little, but afterwards, he's much sharper. So you, too, must learn to bear certain pains and sorrows, because they will make you a better person.

Third quality: the pencil always allows us to use an eraser to rub out any mistakes. This means that correcting something we did is not necessarily a bad thing; it helps to keep us on the road to justice.

Fourth quality: what really matters in a pencil is not its wooden exterior, but the graphite inside. So always pay attention to what is happening inside you.

Finally, the pencil's fifth quality: it always leaves a mark. In just the same way, you should know that everything you do in life will leave a mark, so try to be conscious of that in your every action."

From "Like The Flowing River" - 2007.

My 250th Post


Finally, I've reached to 250th posts~

Yeay XD It's been almost 4 years since my first post (December 20th, 2007) :D


I'll keep writing on this blog :)
A place to treasure all my memories in my life
And someday, this blog will be the part of my journey to success *hopefully*



Farewell, Grade 11

Ohisashiburi, minna~~~

Welcome to the jungle. I'm back again. So after those tiring yet stressful exams, I managed to pass to 12th grade! Yokatta~~~ All my scores were good. And the average score was increasing compared to the previous semester :) Especially for Math. I got 83. Something that I didn't expect before. I thought I would be less than 80, but in the end, I succeed to make it up to more than 80 *thanked God*

Now, I have to say goodbye to grade 11. No more parties, no more craziness stuffs, no more 'hebeh-hebeh'. Very soon, there will be kartul-UAS-UN, university matters and so on. It's time to be more persevere, more serious.

I'm now starting worrying my life. I still can't decide about what major to take in the university. It's either Business/Economy/Management or Biotechnology or others. Gyaaaah~~ I'M TOTALLY CONFUSED. At first, I wanted to take Visual Communication Design as my major. But lately I've been thinking that this field needs a very good talent. And I thought that I'M NOT THAT TALENTED :( I'm just a DECENT graphic-designer~ There's still a time to think about it very intensively. I hope God show me what major that fits me best :))

Another problem is... study abroad or stay here in Indonesia? Maa~~ I'm also worried about that. Since I was a little, study abroad has been always my biggest dream. But as the time goes by, little by little, it seems that dream is starting to fade away. Why? We have to face the reality, dudes. But however, I will work hard and put all my very best efforts to grasp them : TO STUDY ABROAD WITH SCHOLARSHIP :D I don't want to be such a nuisance to my beloved dad. He's been worked very hard to raise me all by himself :')

I think, that's enough for today. Still many stuffs to do. I want to continue watching Code Blue Season 2. It's a JDrama which starred by YamaPi :D. You know, after watched the previous season, I've been thinking to take Biomedical as my major eventhough to be a doctor never crossed in my mind :p But I think I won't take that since it needs a big amount of money for the tuition, in fact :))

YamaPi as Aizawa Kousaku
(kyaaa >.< who doesn't want to be treated by a handsome doctor like him?)



Code Blue Season 2


I'll keep writing on this space, since I am in holiday. Three weeks left of free time, gonna use it wisely~

Ja ne~
