A Good Germany's Song

Setelah kita mendengar lagu Das Beste setiap kali masuk blog ini..(sampe bosen gw,hehehehe) Sekarang ada lagu Jerman dari Silbermond (again) yang bagus banget untuk di dengar.. :)
Lagu ini lebih dulu gue tau sebelum lagu Das Beste..hihihi..walaupun sebenernya yang hits yang lebih senior itu ya Das Beste.. ^^
Tapi berhubung sampai sekarang gw blom menemukan videoklipnya...jadi yang gw share sekedar ilustrasi aja yaa..hehehe..ilustrasinya menggambarkan lagu ini banget kok.. :D

Metromini equals Jakarta..^^

Everytime i wanna go to my campus..i must riding on Metromini. We can just called it Metro (that's what my friends and i used to say) Metromini is one of so many public transportation in Jakarta..

It's bus obviously, not so big, but not so small either..
hmm..like it or not, i HAVE to run and jump on it everytime i want to get on the bus (literary jumping!!).

Even though everytime i get on the bus, i will have to keep my eyes closed n keep praying to the God, so that i can arrive at my campus on time,n alive..:D

The Metromini's Drivers are all crazy people..!! it's simply because their way of
driving this piece of crap..(oh sorry, did i say crap?? well it's a piece of junk actually..^^)

Besides, this Bus produce sooo many air polution..(believe me, i already felt it when i'm riding with motorcycle behind the Metros!!) So no wonder if Jakarta is the big city with very high polution..:(

Hmm.. Everytime i'm on the bus, i will put on my mp3 player, and start listening beautiful songs from Jason Mraz.. (his songs makes me calm down a lil bit) I will pretend that i'm just riding a full speed boat in the beach..:D

Dear Jakarta's Governor..
Please be concern to this public transportation.. Dont just think about your famous 'Transjakarta' n the exclusive road for the 'Busway'. Come on..Be strict with those driver, they can't gambling for the passanger's life on the road.. They can't speed up in the hectic road, and make other people scared to death because of it..

So many people dead because of Metromini.. So many Metrominis overloaded with the passanger, n it makes the condition more dangerous, especially for the women..(They can get sexual harrasment, robbery, etc. on the bus)

It's not fair..at least for me..

Mungkin semua wanita mendambakan wajah yang cantik, kulit mulus, putih, langsing, serta berbagai 'sterotipe' yang amat mendeskreditkan wanita-wanita yang notabene tidak memiliki berbagai persyaratan tersebut..

"Dont judge a book by its cover" banyak orang yang menyerukan kalimat ini.. Tapi pada kenyataannya mereka masih saja melihat seseorang berdasarkan penampilan fisiknya, entah dari pakaiannya, bentuk tubuhnya, atau dari ganteng atau tidaknya seseorang..hahaha..

Boleh jadi saya menjadi korban dari Quote tersebut.. Well, bukan berarti saya ini jelek,lusuh, jarang mandi, dan semrawut yaaa.. Tapi justru yang saya alami agak berbeda.. Saya merasa orang-orang banyak yang tidak menyukai saya dikarenakan saya mempunyai 'tampang' (hahaha..PD dahsyat yaa).. Tapi suka tidak suka, yaa memang begitu kenyataannya..

Pernah menonton film 'Legally Blonde'? naah tepatnya hal seperti itu yang sering saya rasakan..
Banyak orang yang sering meremehkan kemampuan saya, terutama apabila mereka belum mengenal saya.. Sering lho orang-orang di sekitar saya merasa kaget jika saya bisa berada diatas mereka (dalam hal perkuliahan misalnya..pada saat pengumuman nilai, ternyata hasil yang saya peroleh lebih baik daripada teman-teman yang bermuka serius/'nerd'). Mereka akan mendatangi saya sambil terheran-heran, dan bertanya,"iiih Ola, kok bisa siiiih? mau donk rahasianya..Gue ga nyangka deeeeh." Mendengar pernyataan mereka, saya hanya bisa senyum-senyum dan menjawab dalam hati,"emangnya ga pantes ya kalo gue dapet nilai bagus?"

hmm..begitu juga dengan dosen-dosen di jurusan saya.. Karena mayoritas dosen di jurusan saya adalah wanita, jadi semakin terasa lah diskriminasi yang ditujukan kepada saya.. Jujur, saya sering sekali merasa marah dan justru semakin tertantang untuk membuktikan kepada mereka semua, bahwa 'pretty girls can be smart and rule the world'..hahaha..

All i wanna say is, pendiskriminasian tidak hanya terjadi pada kaum-kaum kurang cakep, gendut, pendek,dll..tapi juga kepada orang-orang yang di anggap 'she's too pretty to be smart'..
damn i hate this sentence!!

i'm still working on it, i hope i can prove to the world, that i'm not just a pretty face, but also have a smart brain, i'm a smartass..hahahahahaha...

2008 - Highlights

Gosh, there was so many priceless experiences that I’ve been through in 2008..

2008 is a very cheerful yet scary for me..lol.

1 of the cheerful memorable moment was.. i went to Bali with my troops (The Deutschabteilung students of 2005) and especially with my beloved friends, The Apems!! Wish we can do it again someday.. :)

There was so many experiences such as I started to feel the work’s life, even though it’s just a 1 month internship..but still, I got so many experiences from it.. Being a worker is very challenging n also exhausting role to do.. we have to deal with angry-devil-wear-Prada kind of boss, the enthuasiastic co-workers, the ambitious, n the lazy one too.. hahaha.. and not to mention the crapy i-know-everything workers.. Hmm.. I love to work actually, but it make me feel dizzy with the unbelievable traffic jams that happened almost every weekday during the morning or in the afternoon..and at that time, I swore n cursed so much..lol.

After I finished my internship, then I have to deal with another roller-coaster moment in my life.. That time I have to take part as a TEACHER - a german teacher to be more details. Yup, after 3 desperate Years of learning German in the University (and still gonna be a frustrated student until now), I have to “share” my knowledge to the youngster in the highschool.. It’s really creepy at the beginning - I admit it so much - because the highschool students is the most wild and inevitable human being in this earth.. (Ermm..well this is only my thought though..lol). How can I win their hearts? How can I manage the class to just shut up for a while? How can I deliver the topics successfully? And how can I mingle to the crowd? Those questions are keep spinning in my mind for quite sometimes. Hmm.. This is a learning process of course, and until now, I still have to learn about that too.. :) But, after the whole teaching thing, I’ve changed my mind.. Before I had this experience, I never wanted to be a Teacher.. It never crossed my mind..EVER! But after this whole 5 months learning-teaching process, I feel that it’s really great having the opportunity to be able to teach them, and listening to their thoughts and their feelings, and of course, to share our knowledge to others.. :)

After that… I still got works to do.. 1 of them is the Seminar.. n I’m not in the mood of telling u this nightmare..lol. Just pray for me to finish everything on time, and with a great achievement.. :) .

While I’m dealing with Seminar, I got this honorable call from the university to be one of the candidates for Summer Course Scholarship in Germany.. Wow, this is really beyond my expectations actually.. just be the candidate made me feel really thankful to God.. :) Well, yeah I’m good (hahahaha..narcist part of me), but I think I’m not good enough to be chosen for this scholarship.. Well all I can do is just cross my finger, pray, n wait for the result.. Whatever the result is, I’ve done everything I could for the scholarship, and the result will be the best answer for me, even it’s bad or good news.. Because God knows what the best thing for me :)

Well that’s all I can say for the highlights of 2008..

See u in 2009..! I guess.. ;)
