Mengalahkan Rasa Takut akan Tenggelam

Makanan setelah renang di KOOD Sanur (serba vegan) Dari dulu takut banget sama air dengan volume yang besar. Mungkin di kehidupan gw sebelumnya gw pernah tenggelem kali ya. Makanya nggak pernah bisa renang. Karena ya takut tenggelam. Bahkan sekedar kecipak kecipuk aja takut. Sampai pindah ke Bali. Pindah ke Bali nggak berekspektasi setinggi itu sih. Ternyata, jadi lebih sering main air di pantai. Nggak renang, cuma berendam aja. Lama-lama jadi kebiasaan dan udah mulai terbiasa dengan air. Ternyata seru juga yaa. Kemudian dilatih suami gw buat berani snorkeling. Iya takut awalnya, nggak percaya meskipun dia bilang nggak akan tenggelam karena pake fin. Hmm masaaaa~~ Ya tetep pake pelampung sih. Pertama kali nyemplung, tentu saja heboh takut tenggelam padahal udah pake pelampung, pake fin, mana dipegangin juga. Tapi heboh aja, takut tenggelem. Ada 3 spot waktu itu, gw cuma nyemplung satu spot aja belum juga 15 menit udah naik kapal. Beberapa kali snorkeling akhirnya baru berani lepas pela

Education system

Discussing about education is never end. Why? Because there are a lot of changes in education system. We always want to find and execute the best system in education. Good education means good development. A developed country, most of them, have a good education system. Although there are some “mistakes” in students while using those kind of good system, but what people noted is “This country has a good education system”.

I have a great interest in education life. Here, lots people say that we don’t have a good system of education. Really? Yeah I think so hahaha.. So.. let say that we are still working on arranging good system of education. We cant blame the government or people who responsible in education. It is not a  good habit always blaming others.

And me, I don’t know it is blaming or just add more burdens to them, this is my way of thinking about education. Simply said, I studied mathematics in university. I didn’t study about pedagogic, but I know some points in this mathematics education. Well actually  I don’t really remember if I wrote this here already haha. Ok.. here it is

I really like to learn mathematics since I was in elementary school. Well.. I was. I thought it was always challenge me and fun (when I get the answer). Until I decide (or my dad decide) to study math at university. I thought like “hm it must be fun, and I like it, so I won’t have any big problem in learning”. Nah, I was wrong hahaa… Based on my experiences, start from 1997, mathematics for elementary school was easy and acceptable. Then mathematics for middle school still acceptable and applicable in life. So it is ok still. Nah, for high school, it will be so much different and difficult. Why do students have to learn about integral, derivative and so on which is have no use in life? I mean in their personal life or maybe in common. Do people need integral in counting simple how wide some areas?? I think  no people want to think about how wide the area of rice field which can be planted if have some black spot in left side? No one right? Unless for some people who have big interest in math.

Aya… of course it is needed if you are studying about medical or engineering or stuff. Yes it is needed. But you, who are in high school, still planning what will you do after you graduate from high school right? Still planning even sometimes still have no planning yet. It is normal. 15-17 years old people is unstable. Today they want to be doctor, but tomorrow they want  to be a teacher, even next month they want to be a businessman. Its totally normal.
Why don’t we give another simple math in high school rather than integral or something. Because I know, math at higher level isn’t easy at all. It is application of math. You don’t need one semester to study only integral. It is easy to learn if you have big interest in it. But it is just wasting time if you don’t have any interest.

Integral yes needed for medical stuff like measuring the precise amount of x-ray that we need to shot on the cancer spot in body. It is need precise counting of course. And the people who do this only people who study math in higher level. Not the one who only studied in high school. Because wrong mistake gonna kill the patient.

I got surprised by my sister math problem. She was in second grade of elementary school, last year. And she asked me “mbak, how to solve this question ’16 times 7’?”. Is this a question for 8 years old student? I even know the multiplication table when I was in 4th grade. How can you guys give a difficult question like that ? to the 2nd grade elementary student? Even they don’t know yet the result of 2 times  3? This is happen in math class for elementary school. Its not even their right time to study that difficult thing. Their mind cant be forced to think about such difficult and absurd things. They got tired easily. And it’s a bit dangerous when children got tired of such thing.

So, what is the point? I cant conclude. This is the reality now. How students are forced to think something difficult even not in their right time yet. Just feel like how poor are they. Well I just think that everything have to be more efficient. Why do we have to learn many things about things yhag we dont even concern about it? Yes of course, its better when we have another abilities but this ability is something that we really want to learn.

So.. Is something need to be revised ?

Book : Semakin Dalam Di Jejak Langkah

  Buku ketiga dari Buru Tetralogi ini lebih berat dari Bumi Manusia dan Anak Semua Bangsa . Disini banyak disinggung tentang Multatuli yang mengungkap "kotornya" birokrasi. Kotor disini tentu saja soal korupsi. Semakin dalam membaca ternyata semakin paham kalo kemungkinan besar korupsi ini "warisan budaya" kolonial. Buku ini pun mengatakan bahwa kolonial berhutang banyak gulden kepada Hindia Belanda atas semua hitungan 'meleset'nya penerimaan pajak dan penyalurannya. Siapa yang nggak mau untung banyak? Ya kolonial menang banyak. Bahkan kalau mau benar-benar dihitung, bisa jadi mereka kalah. Tapi nggak mungkin kan diusut karena kolonial tau kalau mereka bakal ketauan salah dan memungkiri itu. Jadi yaaa, lenyap begitu saja. Disini Minke kawin setelah ditinggal Annelies yang Indo dia kawin dengan yang orang tionghoa. Lagi-lagi pula dia ditinggalkan karena istrinya sakit (kemudian kawin lagi dengan Prinses yang ntah darimana tapi yang jelas dia berpendid

Traveling During Pandemic

CGK to DPS I am one of the people who travel (relatively a lot) during a pandemic. Unfortunately, me being in a long-distance marriage, need mental and physical support once in a while.  In the beginning, we met after 8 months of the pandemic and then 3 or 4 months, then every 2 months. I went wild the first 8 months of the pandemic. Everything felt harder. I know many people feel the same, I am not the only one. We're just coping with the best we can do.  The island I call home 💙 It was so stressful the first time traveling during the pandemic. Like I said here , it's not really worth the effort if you're traveling "for fun". PCR price was crazy, every time we have to calculate the time, make it double as well as the price. Because we buy the time with money. I usually book a ticket at least 2-4 weeks before my travel, then went to the airport 2 hours before my flying time, everything felt so efficient but not during the pandemic. I booked my ticket a week befor

[Piknik] Prambanan lagi

Salah satu pesona Jawa Tengah adalah Candi Prambanan. Saya sudah 3 kali berkunjung ke situs warisan dunia ini. Candi yang terletak di perbatasan Jawa Tengah dan jogja ini selalu menimbulkan kesan mistis bagi saya. Terletak tak jauh dari jalan raya, sehingga mengunjunginya pun sangat mudah. Berbeda dengan Candi Borobudur yang letaknya sangat jauh dari jalan raya besar.  Ok, menurut saya ada 3 cara menuju candi ini. Menggunakan bus transjogja, taksi, dan kendaraan pribadi. Bagi yang menggunakan transjogja, saya pernah menggunakannya berangkat dari daerah kampus UNY, daerah Depok Sleman. 1 kali transit, 2 kali berganti bus. Dengan harga transjogja yang kala itu, 2014, seharga 3500 rupiah. Tapi sampai saat ini masih sama harganya, menurut info dari teman. Lokasi shelter bis berada agak jauh dari pintu masuk lokasi candi, mungkin kira-kira 500meter sampai 1kilometer. Kalau jalan, menghabiskan waktu sekitar 15-20menit. Bisa juga naik becak untuk opsi yang lain. Lagi-lagi, jangan lupa men
