The Reward of Teaching

Buku belajar Bahasa Indonesia dalam berbagai bahasa. I've become a teacher since semester 9. That being said, my teaching journey started in 2013. Took hiatus for 2 something years then I came back to these exam sheets, students, books, and social interactions. Didn't even want to become one but I fell in love right after I jumped in.  I guess I need to ask to apologize to my dad. I was mad at him a long time ago because he asked me to be one lol. Well, maybe I just didn't like the idea of being a teacher in a class where your students don't even care about you telling stuff in front of the class. That actually made me realize that I prefer to teach whoever wants to learn. Although sometimes I just need to teach without knowing what's their reasons to learn, and that is also fine. I do what I had to do. That is why I hate grading because I don't mind giving them a perfect score but what's the point if they know nothing after the course ended? I never teach a

Smartphone and our lives

Android based - Smartphone or tablet are familiar in our lives now. People still keep in touch although thousands miles away apart. Many kind of applications that can connect us with other people, such as Line, WhatsApp, Kakao Talk, and many more. I know those applications offered by smartphone make us feel easy to do many things with our smartphone. The first time when I got my smartphone, I said “Sophisticated”.  Yeah that’s right! Sophisticated. I can do many things with my smartphone, I have all my teaching materials in it, I can surfing easily and faster, I can talk to other people by free phone using application, I can share my pictures easily using Instagram (since I like photography), if come to new places I can’t get lost or deceived by taxi driver because I have my GPS hehe. One day I got problem with my smartphone, it can not be turned on and it makes me frustrated. Why? Because I have class and my all materials teaching in smartphone.Ohh,, really I can’t live without my smartphone. My mom said that my smartphone and Sammy (my laptop) are half of myself haha. That’s true mom.

See, there are many things that smartphone can do, and of course help us. Give us many things that we can’t imagine before. the newest type will increase the capabilities. Of course, the developer will make it more and more sophisticated.

But there is something that maybe we forget. Maybe we’re getting excited with smartphone and forget that we are a human too. We’re human being, need to say “hi” to other people too. The real “hi”, not just say “hi” by phone. Maybe we can say hi by phone if we are living far each other. But what if we live in same place? I mean if we go to somewhere  together, we often play with smartphone rather than talking with friends. Sometimes we play on facebook, twitter, or others while going out with friend. Ok, let say, friend still have other things to do, but it’s pathetic when see family going out to eat and dad, mom, even kids play on their own smartphone. They weren't talk each other. They just talk with their own smartphone. So if I see those, I just see mom dad and kids out together, order foods, and play with smartphone while waiting. Doesn't look like family, just look like a man, a woman, and kids eat together in same table without knowing each other, or maybe "who are you?".  I mean, if family going out together, just make it become quality time with family. Maybe parents busy at work and kids busy at school, so they out and make a good time. But unfortunately, the gadget make them far away. They stay close, but far. If you know what I mean.

Smartphone hmmm something that we can’t avoid for now (actually for me hehe), but don’t forget that we are human being and we need to communicate with human and living being. It’s ok having smartphone that help us, just don’t let our smartphone take control our real life. Our lives too precious to taken over by technology.

*haha bahasa gueh*

Dapet Visa UAE (Dubai) Gampang Banget

Dubai creek Beberapa waktu yang lalu, kita pusing berat karena H dapet libur kali ini cuman 10 hari. 10 hari dari yang biasanya 14 hari. Akhrinya diputuskan untuk tetap mengambil libur tapi nggak ke Indonesia.  Ternyata, beberapa hari kemudian, dia bilang, kalau liburnya malah jadi 7-8 hari aja. Mau ga mau saya yang harus kesana. Maksudnya terbang mendekatinya. Udah milih-milih negara mana yang harganya rasional, yang ga banyak makan waktu buat terbangnya H, dan tentunya ga ribet urus visa buat pemegang paspor hijau yang ga sesakti paspornya H.  Btw warna paspor Indonesia jadi biru ya sekarang?? Pilihan jatuh ke Dubai. Pemegang paspor hijau harus bikin visa, ya pusing lagi deh cara bikin visa Dubai nih gimana. Apa iya sesusah bikin visa schengen, visa US, visa lainnya. dari persyaratan sih standar ya, termasuk  record  bank account selama 3 bulan. Emang nggak pernah bikin visa Dubai sebelumnya ya, apalagi H yang paspornya super sakti kemana-mana (hampir) ga perlu visa, dia ga pernah ad

Catatan Kuliah (6) : Masuk bareng, keluar bareng (?)

Sanur Sebagai mahasiswa yang masih belum mengenal kerasnya kehidupan kala itu, kita berikrar "Kita masuk bareng kita juga harus keluar bareng." Naif? Iya tentu. Maklumin aja namanya juga mahasiswa baru kan. Maunya yang  flawless  terus. Tapi apa salahnya sih berdoa baik kali aja malaikat mengamini lol.  Ternyata, kenyataannya, tentu saja tidak. Iya kalau semua  setting  nya  default  semua mahasiswa tidak ada kesulitan yang berarti, dosen nggak resek, mahasiswa juga nggak resek, data nggak resek, pasti lulus bareng kita. Kehidupan perkuliahan keras di akhir hahaha Gw dari awal masuk kampus ngerasa kalo gw nggak akan lulus tepat waktu. Aneh ya, harusnya orang mikir lulus tepat waktu tapi gw udah ada feeling. Dan gw berusaha keras buat nggak terlalu jatuh dalam angka. Ya maksudnyaaaa karena gw anak minor komputasi jadi gw udah bisa tebak lah data yang gw pake pasti agak makan waktu. Jadi  range  kelulusan adalah 7 semester, 8 semester, 9 semester, diatas 9 semester. Temen gw ya
