Finally !

               It was Friday evening, September 2006. I was busy packing my backpack with all my friends. I was so nervous and excited at the same time, because it was my first journey to hike the mountain. Sadly, It’s been raining heavily since afternoon, this condition successfully made my mom worried a lot about me. She even told me to cancel or postpone my plan to hike the Gede Mountain at that day. However, I couldn’t follow what she want because this is my dream, my ambition, I’ve been waiting that day since I was in junior high school. Moreover, I have already prepared everything such as the backpack, shoes,raincoat, the food, and all equipment that needed since a month ago. So, I tried to calm my mom down and stop worrying about me at that time by explaining my safety preparation and also my physic condition. Finally, after a long debate, my mom allowed me to go. Yet, it didn’t stop there.

               My dad suddenly called me and warned me to not go to the mountain because of the bad wheather. “Oh God, why is it so hard to convince my parents that I’d be just fine.” My heart exclaimed. Then, unlike what I did to my mom, I was a little bit protessed to my Dad. I told him that I wasn’t a kid anymore, I was 16 and close to be 17. Yet, it didn’t work well, still my dad didn’t allow me to go. I almost gave up at that time until my friend came and helped me to explain it to my dad. He was more experienced that me, he’s been hiked  Gede Mountain for three times. I was waiting with butterflies in my stomach, it’s been 15minutes but my friend was still busy explaining and. Begging to my dad. After 25 minutes, he ended the conversation and approached me with a very flat face. I thought he couldn’t change my dad’s decision, but then with a very flat voice he told me ” You will go with us”. I was so happy like a dog with two tails. Finally, after a long phsyc and equipment preparation, and a difficultt process to get permittion from my parents, I could make my dream came true. “Gede mountain here I come” I whispered.

The Prayer

POEM

Yesterday…

every night before sleep

I always talk to God

to send me the one who will love like him self,

the one who will protect me like my father,

the one who wont hurt me,

the one I’ll spend all my life with..

 

With eyes on tears…

I keep believe in God..

will send me someone..

who have the same vision the same goal into my life

that could be my voice while I can’t speak..

that could be my eyes while I can’t see…

the one and only…

There are million reasons for me to study English, but here are the three main reasons that I’d like to share. First, English is the first global language which means most people in the world speak English. As we know, language takes a great role in communication, so it is a must for us to be able talk and write in English in order to communicate with people around the world. Second, It opens the gate of a better education and business. Nowadays most of books is written in English, including educational books. That’s why to acknowledge my self with those kind of educational books, I need to be able read and understand English. Moreover, computer is designed in English. It means that we need English to master computer. Also in the job and business field, most companies require their employers to be good in English, either active or passive.  Next, It’s not only for education and business but English also supports my hobby which is traveling. I like to travel a lot and I plan to travel around the world someday.  I believe mastering English will help me a lot to communicate with a lot of people in different countries when I realize that plan. In addition, I can broaden my mind by making new friends around the world when I travel. In short, English gives a lot of benefits for my life, not only to be a successful and educated man, but also to make a friend in many different countries.

The Man He Killed

Thomas Hardy (1840-1928)

Had he and I but met

By some old ancient inn,

We should have sat us down to wet

Right many a nipperkin!

But ranged as infantry,

And starring face to face,

I shot at him as he at me,

And killed him in his place.

I shot him dead because-

Because he was my foe,

Just so: my foe of course he was;

That’s clear enough; although

He thought he’d enlist, perhaps,

Off-hand like-just as i-

Was out of work-had sold his traps-

No other reason why.

Yes; quaint and curious war is!

You shoot a fellow down

You’d treat if met where any bar is,

Or help to half-a-crown.

Nb : Paragraph by paragraph its about :

Paragraph 1 : If I had met him in an inn, we should have sat down and drunk till we felt satisfied.

Paragraph 2 : But, standing face to face as infantry soldiers. I shot him and he shot me. And I killed him there.

Paragraph 3: I shot him dead because … because he was my enemy. That’s it : because he was my enemy. It is clear that he was my enemy although …

Paragraph 4 : He became a soldier because, just like me, he was out of work-he had sold all his work instruments. There was no other reason.

Paragraph 5 : Yes, war is strange and curious. You shoot a person whom you would buy a drink if you met him in a bar or whom you would give some money.

Beauty Tips

You may be wondering what the best skin product is to use? Or what makes a natural cosmetic…well, natural? How do I create smokey eyes? Or perhaps you’re dying to know how you should style your hair this weekend?

Like myself, you may have tried all the moisturizers, lipsticks, anti-aging creams etc. under the sun. But often they end up costly and ineffective. I wanted to know what I was putting on my skin, how I should apply makeup, how to create certain looks and achieve the desired result. So I came to the conclusion that, after many months and years of practice and experiments, I should share my experiences with you.

negative health effects? Or that a drop of lemon and some brown sugar could actually even out skin pigmentation or lighten the tone completely, without spending a fortune on nasty chemicals? Do you exfoliate often enough? Do you moisturize too much? Did you know that if you do, you may clog the pores of your skin? And did you know that the most flattering nail shape is in fact “squoval”?

So dont worry , you can beautiful and be your self guys 🙂

My Diary

Dear diary,

          I did a foolish thing this afternoon. I went out to the park on Pemuda Street to get some boiled corn and peanut. I was waiting for the seller to put the corn and peanut into the plastic bag when a small boy appeared from nowhere and stopped near me. I thought he was not older than 8 or 9 years old. He was wrapped in shaggy clothes and torn sandals and carried a shabby linen bag. He raised his arm and waited. It just wasn’t the right time for him because I was not in the mood to be kind to beggars. Earlier I was angry because this town had had too many of them nowadays. So, I signaled for him to go away and posed a face that I did not want to be disturbed. He did not move. And I hardened my face and showed my mad expression. He kept his arm on the air and I kept ignoring him. When I got my corn and peanut ready, I started my Kharisma, stepped into the gear and rode away.

          I did not know why but I could not get rid of him from my mind all the way home. What if he hadn’t had anything to eat all day? What if he didn’t have a place to sleep? Isn’t he just a victim of urbanization? All bad thoughts came into my mind. At the village gate, I turned round and sped back to the park. I couldn’t find him.

          I really am feeling very bad. I am not a mean person, you know it well. It just happened that I was not in a good mood that time. I wish he knew that I came back for him. I wish he knew that I really am very sorry what I have done. I really am very sorry and I promise to you I’ll have a better control of myself next time J

I can be tough
I can be strong
But with you
It’s not like that at all
There’s a girl
That gives a shit
Behind this wall
You just walked through it

[Pre-Chorus:]
And I remember all those crazy things you said
You left them running through my head
You’re always there, you’re everywhere
But right now I wish you were here.
All those crazy things we did
Didn’t think about it, just went with it
You’re always there, you’re everywhere
But right now I wish you were here

[Chorus:]
Damn, Damn, Damn,
What I’d do to have you
Here, here, here
I wish you were here.
Damn, Damn, Damn
What I’d do to have you
Near, near, near
I wish you were here.

[Verse 2:]
I love
The way you are
It’s who I am
Don’t have to try hard
We always say
Say it like it is
And the truth
Is that I really mi-I-iss

[Pre-Chorus:]
All those crazy things you said (things you said)
You left them running through my head (through my head)
You’re always there, you’re everywhere
But right now I wish you were here.
All those crazy things we did (things we did)
Didn’t think about it, just went with it (went with it)
You’re always there, you’re everywhere
But right now I wish you were here

[Chorus:]
Damn, Damn, Damn,
What I’d do to have you
Here, here, here
I wish you were here.
Damn, Damn, Damn
What I’d do to have you
Near, near, near
I wish you were here.

[Bridge:]
No, I don’t wanna let go
I just wanna let you know
That I never wanna let go

(Let go let go let go let go)

No, I don’t wanna let go
I just wanna let you know
That I never wanna let go

(Let go let go let go let go let go let go let go)

[Chorus:]
Damn, Damn, Damn,
What I’d do to have you
Here, here, here
I wish you were here (I wish you were here)
Damn, Damn, Damn
What I’d do to have you
Near, near, near
I wish you were here.

Damn, Damn, Damn (Damn)
What I’d do to have you
Here, here, here (Here)
I wish you were here.
Damn, Damn, Damn
What I’d do to have you
Near, near, near
I wish you were here.

Nb :

The song “I wish you were here” is a sad song by Avril Lavigne. It’s about a girl who really wants to have someone that she loves. She always thinks about this boy everytime and everywhere. This girl always remembers about this boy, what he said and did. Actually she can’t get rid of him from her mind. Then she’s confused because she doesn’t know what she have to do to make her love beside her. I like this song, because the meaning of this song is sad but it’s great! Maybe the people who hear this song will cry and feel the painful like the lyric. In my opinion, some girls have been ever in this situation, especially after broke up with his boyfriend. They will feel lonely and miss their ex-boy friend. I believe that forgetting someone is not easy for girl. It’s same like replacing someone in our heart is so difficult. According to me, every girl must be strong and still break a leg in this life. Actually we will feel blue, if someone leaves us. But, the life must go on! We must get up and reach the future.

On the other hand, there’s also something which is not so good from this song. I think, there are some lyrics which are , like “Damn, damn, damn!”. I think, when the listener are children, it will give negative effects for them. So, it’s better that the children don’t hear this song. In this case, the parents have a big duty. But so far, it depends on the people, how they see this song.

From the video clip of this song, we can see that the girl looks stress because of her love to the boy. This video clip is simple but it’s so meaningful. I love it! The setting of place describes a whole song and also Avril acts very well, so that the audience can feel what she feels in that moment. I love the way she is, how Avril sings, cries, and bring the messages of this song. It looks natural.
