Sore ini saya kebetulan melihat seorang teman saya posting link tentang bagaimana mengkhawatirkannya kondisi rokok di Indonesia. Okay, I don’t want to talk too much. This video duration is around 42:45 minutes, and worth to watch.
As an Indonesian, I feel so ashamed after watching this video.
This afternoon one of my close friend asked for my advice on facing thesis/final project presentation. And then we have a great funny discussion about it and here they are:
1. If you study where English is the second language, use English for your presentation so that lecturer won’t really understand what did u say, then they’ll ask only a few basic question.
2. If somehow those lecturers ask you with a deadly question, pretend to collapse in front of them.
3. If you’ve got the most difficult question, cry in front of them, loudly, they will ask you to sit and stop the presentation and give you a good grade (This is really works! One of my senior did it. LOL)
4. Before thesis presentation begins, buy some delicious food for your lecturer. They will fall for you and won’t ask you a deadly question and may be they too busy to eat (This is works, my friend’s senior told him!)
5. Wearing a bold make up, red lipstick, that make you look like a crazy person. So that, your lecturer will afraid of you so they will make you pass the thesis presentation. LOL
It’s up to you for believing or not. These all are just for fun!
Yesterday I met with some of my senior high school friends. Some of them has graduated from College and some of them not.
We had some talk about why actually are we working?
One of my friends answered:
“Working for me is just like use your time with something productive. It’s much better than you just stay at home and watch movie, it will make you fat, right?”
One of my friends answered:
“Actually, I want my work to be light, let’s say I don’t have a lot of something to do but I get a lot of money. Well, honestly I’m working just for money.”
According to me and one of my friend:
“Working for me is for learning. Don’t look for money because you will not ever ever be satisfied if you work just for money. We work not only for studying the materials, but making friends, learning how to behave well, discuss well, talking manner, time management, and so on.”
Well, Are you the one who working for money?
on October 5th we’ve lost the Thomas Alfa Edison in this modern era. Who am I talking about? Yup, he’s Steve Jobs. I barely don’t know him well, but as long as I live, a lot of things he has invented. He has helped a lot of people from his invention. I read about an article 2 days ago which said about how his invention can help a mother who has a child that has autism. 😦
After that, I googled every article about the effect from his invention and himself. Then I found out the “Commencement Speech of 2005 at Standford University“. I adore him more than any other great motivators that only can sell their words.
There are some great quotes that I get from his commencement speech:
from Connecting the dots
You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So, you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something-your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever.
Love and loss
Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don’t lose faith. I’m convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I love what I did. You’ve got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as year roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma-which is living with the results of other people thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary
Well, Good bye Steve Jobs. You left us with the greatest legacy ever. 🙂
