                                   Something's Special  

I'll always remember when someone's gave me a flower, especially for the notes that he/she gave me. Which is "Taking the first leap wasn't always the easiest, but once you've done it, the flight is worth so much more" I was shocked, I didn't know, my spirit just goes up when I read that. I just feeled he/she know me so well that I have a rough time dealing with the first semester and when he/she gave me that,.. It's just special or me I guess and I just wanna say thanks to whoever he/she who gave me that flower.

So, as you guys know, or maybe I didn't mention it yet, in here, Bandung, I live at apartement too! So you guys can imagine right, that if I have to spending my holiday in another but also an apartement :) . The first city that I have visited were the capital city of Indonesia which is Jakarta. And I stayed at Oakwood Premier Cozmo Jakarta which is locate at Mega Kuningan, East Jakarta. And honestly, I do nothing instead of doing something that usefull or refreshing. All I do is just umm ... sleep and then check notifications from my phone and then go shopping into the mall, and then buy some coffe and maybe just that. Well sometimes I found some things that atrack my mind, which is it was a great neighboorhood in Mega Kuningan, and I don't know I just loved it. Especially when you knew that you can walk into the mall. You can imagie right, how close it is from my apartement to the mall. Here I'll give you the track.
 








See? So I thik that’s all I got when I was visited Jakarta.

Inspiring Person

Stephen Hawking

Image result for stephen hawking young

Stephen William Hawking was born on 8 January 1942 (300 years after the death of Galileo) in Oxford, England. His parents' house was in north London, but during the second world war, Oxford was considered a safer place to have babies. When he was eight, his family moved to St. Albans, a town about 20 miles north of London. At the age of eleven, Stephen went to St. Albans School and then on to University College, Oxford; his father's old college. Stephen wanted to study Mathematics, although his father would have preferred medicine. Mathematics was not available at University College, so he pursued Physics instead. After three years and not very much work, he was awarded a first  class honours degree in Natural Science. 

Stephen then went on to Cambridge to do research in Cosmology, there being no one working in that area in Oxford at the time. His supervisor was Denis Sciama, although he had hoped to get Fred Hoyle who was working in Cambridge. After gaining his Ph.D. he became first a Research Fellow and later on a Professorial Fellow at Gonville and Caius College. After leaving the Institute of Astronomy in 1973, Stephen came to the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics in 1979, and held the post of Lucasian Professor of Mathematics from 1979 until 2009. The chair was founded in 1663 with money left in the will of the Reverend Henry Lucas who had been the Member of Parliament for the University. It was first held by Isaac Barrow and then in 1669 by Isaac Newton.  Stephen is still an active part of Cambridge University and retains an office at the 
Department for Applied Maths and Theoretical Physics. His title is now the Dennis Stanton Avery and Sally Tsui Wong-Avery Director of Research at the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics. 

Stephen Hawking has worked on the basic laws which govern the universe. With Roger Penrose he showed that Einstein's General Theory of Relativity implied space and time would have a beginning in the Big Bang and an end in black holes. These results indicated that it was necessary to unify General Relativity with Quantum Theory, the other great Scientific development of the first half of the 20th Century. One consequence of such a unification that he discovered was that black holes should not be completely black, but rather should emit radiation and eventually evaporate and disappear. Another conjecture is that the universe has no edge or boundary in imaginary time. This would imply that the way the universe began was completely determined by the laws of science.

His many publications include The Large Scale Structure of Spacetime with G F R Ellis, General Relativity: An Einstein Centenary Survey, with W Israel, and 300 Years of Gravity, with W Israel. Among the popular books Stephen Hawking has published are his best seller A Brief History of Time, Black Holes and Baby Universes and Other Essays, The Universe in a Nutshell, The Grand Design and My Brief History. 

Professor Hawking has twelve honorary degrees. He was awarded the CBE in 1982, and was made a Companion of Honour in 1989. He is the recipient of many awards, medals and prizes, is a Fellow of The Royal Society and a Member of the US National Academy of Sciences. 

Stephen was diagnosed with ALS, a form of Motor Neurone Disease, shortly after his 21st birthday. In spite of being wheelchair bound and dependent on a computerised voice system for communication Stephen Hawking continues to combine family life (he has three children and three grandchildren), and his research into theoretical physics together with an extensive programme of travel and public lectures. He still hopes to make it into space one day.

                                  A gift of love!

“Can I see my baby?” the happy new mother asked.
When the bundle was nestled in her arms and she moved the fold of cloth to look upon his tiny face, she gasped. The doctor turned quickly and looked out the tall hospital window. The baby had been born without ears.
Time proved that the baby’s hearing was perfect. It was only his appearance that was marred. When he rushed home from school one day and flung himself into his mother’s arms, she sighed, knowing that his life was to be a succession of heartbreaks. He blurted out the tragedy. “A boy, a big boy … called me a freak.”
A favorite with his fellow students, he might have been class president, but for that. He developed a gift, a talent for literature and music. “But you might mingle with other young people,” his mother reproved him, but felt a kindness in her heart. The boy’s father had a session with the family physician. Could nothing be done? “I believe I could graft on a pair of outer ears, if they could be procured,” the doctor decided.
He grew up, handsome for his misfortune. Whereupon the search began for a person who would make such a sacrifice for a young man. Two years went by. Then, “You are going to the hospital, Son. Mother and I have someone who will donate the ears you need. But it’s a secret,” said the father. The operation was a brilliant success, and a new person emerged. His talents blossomed into genius, and school and college became a series of triumphs.
Later he married and entered the diplomatic service. “But I must know!” He urged his father, “Who gave so much for me? I could never do enough for him.” “I do not believe you could,” said the father, “but the agreement was that you are not to know … not yet.” The years kept their profound secret, but the day did come … one of the darkest days that a son must endure. He stood with his father over his mother’s casket. Slowly, tenderly, the father stretched forth a hand and raised the thick, reddish-brown hair to reveal that the mother had no outer ears. “Mother said she was glad she never let her hair be cut,” he whispered gently, “and nobody ever thought Mother less beautiful, did they?”
Real beauty lies not in the physical appearance, but in the heart. Real treasure lies not in what that can be seen, but what that cannot be seen. Real love lies not in what is done and known, but in what that is done but not known.

Unforgetable moment

Hey there! Are you guys still with me? 
So, this time I'd like to tell you guys another story with another different topic *again* but this is the most favorite topic of all *for me* :) Okay then, let's start!

All of the people in this world has their own memories, right? And I bet you guys too! ;) That memories can be sad, happy, scared, etc. But in the middle of the memories, I guaranteed there're some memories that you can't forget, neither am I. And I bet, that memories has been meaning so much into your life. 

So, the unforgetable moment in my life is when I were get bullied in my JHS-year. Iknow, it's totally a sad-mad situation. But yeah, I've been through this situation, proudly ;). As I said, it's all happened just because a "girls-problem", you know what I mean right? It's just because of a factor of a jealousy. And I have to through this not only for months but for YEARS. yeah. like two years. Why did it took so long? I don't know, maybe you guys can ask it to the bulliers.

During this situation, of course I can't stay away from stressful, and depression situations, which makes me become a person who didn't love myself. Cause I've always thought that the way they judge me it feels like I'm not a good person in their eyes, even I'm not doing a wrong thing especially to them. Everyday, I walked into the school, I always become a person who didn't believe in myself and realized that I'm not as confident as the way I am before. And in my mind, I always think that "alright, here we go wild-world, today is gonna be the same day as before. Nothing changed, so strengthen yourself" and suprisingly the way I thought became true and happened in the real life. I were get yelled, they yelled some of not a good words to me, saying "things" about me that it was not true at all, like makes people think that I'm not a good person so stay away from me, even they told to my bestfriend. And you know what happened next? All of my bestfriend believed what they said and then leave me like in my baddest situations, and joined them and do what they always do. I was betrayed, and I've trusted wrong people, i know ;)

And every moment when I got home, I always cried, I'm to overthinking what people's says about me and doubting my self as a person, and everyday, everything goes according to the pattern that i made basicly from my instings. And of course it got worse everyday. And someday, I realized that the way I responded is totally wrong. Cause I'm hurting my feelings deep by deep in every step I walked, and of course I can't stand that, and I bet no one can stand that. So, I've to change, I've to exteriorize my visions, I've to starting to not care what others think about me, and I've to make my mama and papa pround again, even if I have to walked alone to be in in a right path again.

When my mom see what happened with me, she cried. I always see when my mother finished the prayer, in her prayer she always prayed for me while crying. It kinda hurts my feeling when I saw that. And I always thought that I've to do a 'revenge' thing to them, but I can't. Why? Because for me when you tempted to lose patience with someone, think how patient Allah has been with you all the time. So yeah, I believed that Allah gave me this as a test, because Allah loved me. And I believed that everything happen for a reason, and He indeed the best planner. Yes, Allah knows. Allah knows I'm tired, Allah knows it's difficult for me, Allah knows I've to squeezing my last drop of energy, but I also have to know that Allah would never place me in a situation that I can't handle.

And the next day by day, I'm doing what I have to do even it's stessing me out. I've to prove them that they were wrong about me and I've to show them who I am by the end of the day when I graduated.






The day that I expecting, which is the revival day, is came. My name's been called for the best student in academics and nonacademics in my school and I've been invited to come to the stage with my parent besides me. I won. That moment is the best moment in my life. I feel relief, happy, grateful, and any feelings that can not describe by words. And also that day, I realized that what I ever believed is true. Allah always keep the best moment in the end, and that's revealed everything. And the happiest thing is, I'm so thankful for the bulliers, because without them, I will never be a person who I am right now. So that is the unforgetable moment in my life cause it's change me to be a better person.

                 

Cheerio!

Old Hometown

Hey guys! It's me. Again. In the middle of nowhere.
Okay, now I'd like to have another nostalgy about my favorite place in the whole world. I know, it's not like the 'whole world' but yeah, this place's meaning so much into my life. So, like the title of this post, I will tell you guys about my old hometown and how can it be something into my life.
https://goo.gl/images/RCBHPn
https://goo.gl/images/jgWvnL


We'll come out with the first. The first thing that atrracked me so much  is when I heard that I have to spend my life in the middle of jungle. I screamed like right after my daddy's told me that. Can you guys imagine that you in my position and heard creepy announcement like that? But that mind completelly blurried away when i saw the Kuala Kencana's city in the first time. I don't know, I think I made my first crush into this city. If you ask me why, i think it's just because the city itself, just the way the city's made of.
https://goo.gl/images/w5Y295


The way the city's doted me with many facilities and fulfil all of my life necessity, maybe it's the another reasons why am i loving so hard into this city. Like my life has been guaranteed, and all I have to do just living my life and make other memories. 

By the end of the story, wheter I want it or not, I'm so freaking mad when I have to face the fact that I have to leave this lovely town to continue my study in Bandung. Can you guys fell what I feel? Like when you leaving the place that you've been spend all of your life in there, and you've starting loving your life and a lot of memories in it, crushing some boys, yeah and the other things, and in the end, you have to leave it all and starting your new life, all over again, quite sad isn't it? But,  for the sake of my dreams , I have to do it. So yeah, I'm here, and I'm ready to starting my new life all over again:)

Toodles!

Megantara

Hello readers! I'm back :)
     Now, I'd like to retell about an event that belongs to my school which is Megantara. Wait a minute, I smell some confusion around here. It's okay guys, I'll describe it as deep as I can. Alright then, we will start with the meaning. Megantara is like a culture festival, more like an Indonesian culture festival. So defitnelly, megantara's a name of a festival.This festival has been held in Lapangan Bali, on 10th September 2016. Also, this festival's supported by our mayor, Ridwan Kamil. I know right ;).

        Indonesia is a archipelago state, right? So, it's obvious if the first thing you will saw are a stands that filled with all of the islands in Indonesia. One stand have one culture with a specific Island, like Papua, Sumatra, Java, etc. I think if you ever came to this event, you will felt like you've been traveled to all around Indonesia.
 
        Besides of a stands, if you guys starting to hungry, we serve you some  foods that originally from Indonesia, and also we serve you all with a foodtrucks too! I think there's no worries for a complaining tummy, isn't it? :)

        Sadlly, I can't told you more about the rundown of this event, because I was believed by my friends in the class, to be a model in fashion show competition *even I didn't want to* and I should take the risk that I can’t saw the event as a whole :( but yeah, I'll did it for my beloved class, because if our class won, there would be a prize on it, and the prize is so worth it. So, for the next story, I'll told you more about the fashion show. This fashion show is just not like the other fahion show. Why? because one of the model represented custom of a province which exist in Indonesia, so again, more like Indonesia traditional fashion show. I, incidentally, instructed to represent the culture of the  province Yogyakarta. Here’s a photo when I was on stage doing my thing. ;)

When I was on stage, and when I looked around, saw them wears traditional clothing from their respective provinces, deep down in my heart  I felt I’m more in love with this country, I felt like even we’ve came from the different regions we can still be united because we don’t want to be all the same, but we do want to understand each others. Oh, I stucked now and I don’t even know what words that can express my feelings :)

Finally, the end of this story *sorry guys :(* I’d like to giving thanks to my seniors, friends, even teachers, who’ve been organized this event so well and make me falling for Indonesia over and over again. Thankyou sososo much :)

Adios!

Dira
