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

Watch Your Mouth People!

mungkin lebih cocok kalau ganti mouth dengan finger

Now since we live in 'social media' life, everything can be exposed online whether you like it or not. We can't deny that social media take part in our lives. And most people love to 'share' their life on social media. Some people share even the detail of their lives but some are use it only for fun or limited.

The thing is, when everything are exposed, it means indirectly you give 'permission' to them to criticize your life or let them leave comment on your life. And most problems coming from irresponsible people who doesn't even watch their mouth.

Few months ago, a rubbish online media misused my picture with H for something that wasn't even our own story. They use it for unrelated picture and story. Apparently the story was about Indonesian girl (TKI) screwed a white guy, got pregnant, but married her Indonesian husband to cover it up. They blurred the picture, so it make us like the real subject of the story. And the bullies coming along.

Some friends realize that it was my picture and they called me. So I took action, asked them to take it down otherwise I am going to sue them for misuse my picture. Long story short, some people on internet start to bully me. They said that I am such a bitch that screw a white man and ruin another man's life for being pregnant and lied. Most of all, they are focused on my hijab I wore on that picture. You know how it goes...?

Some people send personal message and said as if they were right and they knew everything. But they absolutely didn't.

What did I feel that time? I felt humiliated. I was just sharing what I love and it's like a diary of my life and also hobby as I love to write. So I took time off from blogging or sharing things. I do realize that it was also my mistake in a way by sharing my personal life, perhaps it was too obvious or whatever it is. But it is giving them chance to talking bad about the life that they dont even know.

We can't really blame them because the things we did was also one of the reason that triggered it up. But it makes me think how not to believe in anything online without doing small research before. At least to make sure that the news isn't fake or hoax. People love to share phenomenal news anyway.

What concerns me is : you'll leave scar for people who are being accused. You might enjoy when you are accusing and talking back as if you know everything about what you are talking about, but nope. You are wrong. What had happened to me was a small example. If I have no big self confident or being someone who are too sensitive, I might committing suicide soon afterward. But I can still feel how painful it was when people try to say what is 'right' based on their opinion and telling me what to do right. I don't give a shit anymore, but the pain remains.

We basically know nothing about other people's lives, right? Imagining how's life would be without having negative comments from people haha! Since I know how it feels, and some of my friends bring the pain forever and can't forgive what they did to them.

So.... watch your mouth people! If you know nothing, then say nothing 😄

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
