A Smooth Sea Never Made A Skillful Sailor

Salaam! Peace be upon you!
It's almost the end of 2014 and I've been abandoned this blog since March or 9 months. It's December 21st, it means I am already 16 years old and 19 days. Birthday is nothing though, it's nothing more than just a number. I am so thankful for the surprise, prayers, and gifts. Thank you so much for Willa, Rama, Shinta, Arum who wont talk to me in my birthday and all of sudden 5 days later they entered my room and sprayed yellow thingy and foams. You should know that it was 1 pm I was going to do maths and I haven't even took a bath. But yet I am so happy. 

Talking about birthday, it reminds me to the last 3 years when I was still in Junior High School. I remember how my friends treated me and the videos and else. It hurts somehow to think that we're not in the same school anymore. But life is life. I am no more a Junior High School student, I am officially SMA Negeri 6 Yogyakarta student! It is not the first choice but I am so grateful of Allah's plan. I was ungrateful at first, but soon I realized Allah is the best of planners. He puts me around a really good friends who I considered as family too. This year is the 13th Lustrum of SMA Negeri 6 Yogyakarta, and we already held 13 events and the last one is SANSEKERTA Anniversary Live Music on 18 of December! I am so proud of being one of them. They taught me a lot of things especially on organize such events. Lustrum XIII SMA Negeri 6 Yogyakarta was impressively impressive! ( Words cannot describe how happy I am being one of them!

I am barely a year in High School but I have gained a lot of lessons and memories I will never forget. I remember the very first day when I stepped on the hallway in my bulky uniform and walking like some idiotic inexperienced kid. I remember how I met my classmates X MIA MODU5AN and how we introduced ourselves. I remember all of the events we've been through throughout this 6 months. I remember how I always feel like I've known them for years. It has only been 6 months but we took tons of group selfies, we argued, we fight, but soon we will make it up again. I remember the details, I remember it all too well. I never thought I will be this happy. I am way too excited. They're blessings.

If you remember my last posts about "Strange Goals and Aspirations", I am going to tell you that being in this school is like the gate of my dreams. #tsah #geezwhatareutalkingabout . I thought I was going to be a scientist or an astronaut when I was 6. But hell yeah I know it will only forever be nothing more than just a dream. But in this school, I can learn Astronomy deeper than I have ever imagined by enter the extra astronomy class which is so exciting! Astronomy is so attractive as the way it is. I was planning on buying a Celestron Telescope but my wallet doesn't support so...whatever though at least finally I can do and learn what I love.

The second thing is I am so proud of being KIR Muda Wijaya team. SMA Negeri 6 Yogyakarta is famous for its nickname "The Research School of Jogja" and I couldn't ask for anything better. I am so grateful that after being in so much failures I'd never tell in the past years, I and Dinda (she's my partner in doing research) achieved our very first Gold Medal for Physics category in Yogyakarta Science Project Competition in 18-19 December 2014. I am not yet a scientist nor a physicist (I even failed on Physics exam). Without the help of amazing people I've ever met : Mbak Dewi, Mbak Fiesha, Mas Zakaria, Mas Afif, and people who always supported us, we are nothing more than just a potato. I still don't know how much failures I have to pass next before reach the success because I believe there is success behind every failures.  They inspired us so much. Rather than that, I wish that it will be a stepping stone to reach the success. Again, Allah is almighty and the best of planners. Alhamdulillah...

"By Al-Asr (the time). Verily, man is in loss. Except those who believe and do righteous good deeds, and recommend one another to the truth and recommend one another to patience." (Quran 103)

Well the funny thing is I only considered them as hobbies, which is good though. I am still confused on choosing the major......thought I will choose Interior Design. Hahaha ikr my brain is so messed up, I don't even know what the hell am I doing right now. I used to think to choose engineering but I don't think it fits me well. I am nothing more than a red snot-nosed kid who seeks for experiences. If only you know how some people underestimate me and keep saying that I can do nothing but sleep and eat. And how some people think that I will never ever reach my dream. You were wrong if you are saying that my life is smoother than yours. You were wrong if you think I never feel useless. You were wrong if you think I never cried for such things, I did. But a smooth sea never made a skillful sailor. And I am grateful Allah has put me in this position, I believe and trust in Allah's plan.

Surviving High School : Mean Girls

If you watch movies and read teenlit, young-adult, or whatever-- you must have ever seen the popular girls dominate the shool, wearing short short skirts, amazing hair, make ups, cheerleading and of course hot guys around them. So, a few weeks ago I was so bored and I decided to looking for something that could make me sorta--um happy? I was scrolling through the app store and typed "school" because that's what comes first in my mind. There was this one app named "Surviving High School" and I was curious. The cover were girls and guys in high school uniform. Idk if it was a game at first so I was like is high school life is that hard so as we need pocket instructions on how to survive. Like are we in hunger games or what. And I downloaded it. I realize that its a sort of otome games (read my post about otome games here) in western version. 

Just like the other games we have to submit our name or your whatsoever name (I typed my real name as I know that the game will set my name during the game). Oh and by the way it's not the "Surviving High School" game by EA. This one is abal-abal version gitu deh grafiknya. pft. I was thinking that I wil play as nerd and anti-social one and then get bullied by the popular girls and be like forever alone or maybe get along with another nerds and then fall in love and then we're gonna married and live happily ever after with two cute son and daughter with tons of books and tea to fill our lonely days on the rest of our lives with our grandchilds running and playing around in our weary old house as we sit on the rocking chair and will be dead and the story ends. Or for the worst ended up in suicide bcs they're so--ugh.

I was right. My avatar was wearing some old nerdy glasses and old fashioned-green top and three-quarter pants. The hair was tied in ponytail. And I was like thanks God this game really knows what happen in social teen life these days.

In the first day of school, my virtual dad--he has very thick mustache and half bald-- drove me to school. I walked down to the headmaster room, he said that I will be accompanied by the senior who will be my guide. I was wondering about cute guy and then we're gonna fall in love to each other. No. Hahah. I was one hundred percent wrong. It was a weird looking guy in black t-shirt, he seems never comb his hair bcs it covers his eyes and he was talking like a narcotics addict. As I was going to introduce myself he gave me the school map and said "We will never ever be friends." and he left. He is so nice, isn't he? :)

So I met two friends near the tree(?) they're unpopular and dumped. But really they're so nice they helped me to changed the way I look and in secs I turn to be somewhat pretty. Until I met the group of popular girls in cheerleaders costume walking towards me and they said I look nice, they said I remind them to certain celebrity like what. And without any chit chats they invited me to join them. I was going to say no right in front of their face. But I don't know why the system seems like forced me to make me join theeeemmmmmm so now I am a part of them. And break my promise with my real friends. I am feeling so guilty at that time.

And then well the story starts going to be weirder and weirder. I met cute guy and then we're like fall in love. But one of the school weirdo tells the whole school that I am now his girlfriend. And skip skip skip those problems,there we go a prom night and I was so mad that idk whatever bye the story is just so weird I ended up being the leader of the popular girls, I dumped bunch of loyal friends which makes me feeling so guilty at that time, and I was being so mean to people, and the cute guy went up with me and everything goes perfectly like the hell is happening. Bye this is the worst game I've ever played.

Strange Goal and Aspiration

Isn't it so bad that I come here just to say hi with a lot of reason of nonstop-busy-days-at-school and then ended up saying that I will have exams? Yes. Because that's what I am gonna say. Lol no jk I just passed final term exam month ago. I mean last year, on December 2nd 2013 exactly. And in one month...two months...three months... maybe four or five months later there'll be national exam, on May 2014 . Yeah. Ikr. Oh I even forgot to say "hi", well never mind. At least that's what makes this post different with the other one. It drives me crazy too for not showing up here because knowing the visitors and statistics are decreasing gradually. By the way, happy new year! Not quite excited though.

I have some new hobbies during my inactive time here; watching animes and snailmail. I am so thankful that some of my schoolmates are otakus. I don't even know that there were pretty much otakus there, I used to know only one... two.. yeah two. No, no, no I am not otaku hehe. But I like watching some animes on YouTube and read comics. Maybe some of you don't know that I really like comics since primary school. I used to obsessed of being a mangaka, maybe in grade 4-6 after obsessed of being astronaut and scientist. Oh about that strange aspiration, I'll tell you about it below. I even asked my mom to put me in manga school and bought me tutorial books of "how to draw bla bla bla". But fortunately.. my mom said no.

I am so addicted to Japan things in primary school; harajuku, cosplay, comics, etc. But then because of something-I-don't-remember it slowly faded by time. Haha. Well never mind let's just talk about /cough/ this. So I am gonna tell you my biggest dishonor things that I should not tell you. My biggest desire. Um no. Used to be my biggest desire. /dim lighting/

1 & 2. Astronaut and Scientist
I used to think that I will be a great scientist or astronaut at 2020 or 2025. My friends even called me Professor-with-big-head-and-almost-no-hair on the first grade. I can't even. Lol no I was just exaggerating. But seriously. Seriously I bought books of astronomy and everything about that. I used to remember a lot of astronauts name. I know who was the first man landing in the moon. I know the first dog landed in the moon. I know the apollo-things/?.  I know who found the telescope. I know the spaceships and also the year. I know the story about Icarus and Daedulus and their wings. I know how the galaxy formed. And the big bang whatever. "I used to" know okay... I even almost buy telescope after doing a research on eBay and tokobagus/? /no. I even have star map/? I got free from magazine. How pity.

Ikr I am not that insane. At least I did this with my best friend. /lambaikan tangan ke Enno /lol jk :)
We did a lot of experiments from books we have. /cough/ /wearing eyeglasses/
The most-weird one is "contact aliens with math book" experiment. Howwww?? Let me show you. We did this twice, didn't we? :) Remember this, Eno? x) /isin/

After we done drawing these, we threw it outside school, and hoped the wind fly it to the space so the aliens or the martians could see it and contact us and maybe do some chit chat or tea party whatevs. Just thought that maybe one day they will contact us back with another code or anything. How weird.

You guys should understand this, because science in primary school is easy so it's one of my favorite subject. But right now since I met biology, science, chemistry, physics and those frustrating formulas. Lol I don't care. I am screwed up.

I was "sok pinter", bought this high school book when I was in fourth grade :) (I never finish it until now.)

Constellations, extraterrestrials, galaxy, big bang, aliens. I really do have an awesome childhood experience.
3. Detective or Spy
I don't really remember about this one. But I remember that I used to think that being detective is such a cool job. Imagine that you are doing this job in the name of justice!!! /fire blazing/ Even though in another side you are also risking your lives, family, and friends. And make sure that people don't know who you are. Because the enemy could be anyone and anywhere. Maybe I get inspired from Conan, Sherlock Holmes, and some spy movies. Oh, I used to did a research too and I am surfing through the internet again to get to know more about spy gears and tools :) You know invisible pen, hidden camera, gps, spy glasses, multifunction belt, laser, and those things. Can you imagine in the normal day you go to school like usual but after school you have to do a lot of secret missions against the villains? And then you go downstairs to the basement and get into a capsule that bring you to the secret room or lab or whatever. Is that... awesome? And you know the feeling when you can solve a very hard clue that brings you even closer to the answer. And you're like "I know it's gonna be this easy.". But when it's impossible to solve you'll be like "How dare you do this to me!?" /eat grass /no

4. Mangaka or Artist
Yes. As I have told you. I am not a fan though I just have a few comics, I mostly borrow or read it on some free website hahaha. Poor you.

I do love drawing even though the result mostly not like what I had expected hahahahahaha. I used to addicted so much. This things are comes because Eno, I often went to her house and painting something and ended up doing nothing. We drew on canvas or whatever.

5. Writer
I like read books of course. And I used to think that I can be a writer. I have some folders contain some stories I have wrote or the one in progress /what. Mostly are unfinished and I am not sure I will finish it because I am so dope. It's fun in the beginning and I often stopped in 30+pages or when I reach chapter 3-4 I honestly don't know what should I do with the rest of it. Too many plots and words and sentences in my head running through my scalps and crawling like pieces of nowhere. That's it.

Well that's it. I know I am weird.
