Reading Fiction Novels Is Not Wasting Time

•June 5, 2010 • Leave a Comment

When I was in Junior High School, I was a member of Mathematical Olympiad Team. And I was doing pretty well in the team. I also got good marks in the school. But still, my teacher once got mad at me. The reason was just because I read Harry Potter. Even when I achieved the second prize instead of the first one in a competition, she blamed the innocent Harry Potter. She told me I was wasting my time in fantasy instead of reality, that was, of course, Mathematics. And I think she was not the only one thinking that way. For many people, reading novels, especially the fiction ones, is simply useless. Well, may be they can be right, under some conditions, for example if you have an important exam tomorrow, but tonight you are trying to finish an irrelevant novel and sacrificing your sleeping time. But in general, fiction novels actually bring more benefits than detriments. Continue reading ‘Reading Fiction Novels Is Not Wasting Time’

Declan Galbraith, An Angel

Daripada bosen denger biografi sy, mending denger ini aj..

I wish I had your pair of wings
Had them last night in my dreams
I was chaising buterflies
Till the sunrise broke my eyes

Tonight the sky has glued my eyes
Cause what they see’s an angel hive
I’ve got to touch that magic star
And greet the angels in their hive

Sometimes I wish I were an angel
Sometimes I wish I were you
Sometimes I wish I were an angel
Sometimes I wish I were you

All the sweet honey from above
Pour it all over me sweet love
While you’re flying around my head
Your honey kisses keep me fed

I wish I had your pair of wings
Just like last night in my dreams
I was lost in paradise
Wish I’d never opened my eyes

Sometimes I wish I were an angel
Sometimes I wish I were you
Sometimes I wish I were an angel
Sometimes I wish I were you

But there’s danger in the air
Tryin’ so hard to be unfair
Danger’s in the air
Tryin’ so hard to give us a scare
But were not afraid

Sometimes I wish I were an angel
Sometimes I wish I were you
Sometimes I wish I were an angel
Sometimes I wish I were you

Wish I were you
Oh I wish I were you

What’s Inside an Empty Nut

•November 26, 2009 • 6 Comments

Alesan knapa sy pilih “emptynuts” sbagai nama blog sy..

Jadi ini ada.. apa istilahnya.. oh ya, ‘analogi’..ehm ehm..

So, pertama bayangin perasaan temen2 pas nemuin kacang yg kalian buka tu kosong.. Kecewa ga? (biasa aja kali..) Yah, udah susah-susah buka, kan kadang susah tu soalnya kulitnya harus digigit-gigit dulu sgala (ah, lo aja kali) Yah, intinya asumsikan buka kacang itu susah, trus ternyata isinya kosong! (asumsi ditolak) Ergh, jangan protes trus dunk Mas.. (ergh, jangan maksa dunk Mbak..) huaaa… udah deh lanjut aja..

Sampai mana tadi? Oya, jadi kacangnya kosong ni critanya.. Nah, barangkali otak kita (yg katanya komputer paling cepet sedunia) langsung berpikir bahwa pekerjaan membuka kacang tu sia-sia. Dan mulut kita (yg mungkin bahkan lebih cepet daripada otak kita) langsung mengeluh atau bahkan mengeluarkan “bahasa Krama”. Tapi kalo kita pikir lagi, sebenernya dengan kita sering dapet kacang kosong itu, kita jadi lebih lancar buka kacang, dan jadi ga terlalu kaget kalo kacangnya kosong.. Jadi pas balapan maem kacang, temen2 isa dapet kacang paling banyak, gitu..

Jadi, kalo isi kacang itu kita asumsikan sbg kesuksesan dan kulitnya adalah perjuangan, kacang kosong ini bisa dianggap sebagai kegagalan.. Nah, dg resiko kedengaran klise, sy pengen nulis motto sy, “Jangan takut mencoba, sakit dan gagal juga bagian dari tumbuh”.
