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...

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.
