I Thought I Hate People, but...

Sanur ... but I actually don't! That I realized when I had dinner with H and he asked me, "Do you think she's married? The seller, she looks young but not too young."  So I said, "Uhmm I don't know and I don't care."  He then said again, "Yea I know, but I am curious about people. I am curious about what they're doing in life." That's when it came to my mind, "Wait a minute! I am also curious about people, but not their personal life like marital status, how many kids they have, what religion they believe in. I am curious about what they think about things! Ah that's why I love talking to people, no matter how introvert I am but talking to people still excites me." Then we finished our big nasi goreng together.  Looking back at it, I never really like people randomly talking to me when I was in the zone... Like zoning in and out talking to myself. But actually no, maybe it was only that we didn't sync so I went &qu

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.

Bayar Pakai QRIS

QRIS Janji Jiwa di DPS. Siapa yang udah sering pakai QRIS? Doi nongol udah lama banget. Kabarnya sih dari Feb 2020 trus pandemi yaaelah. Karena penasaran dan gatel gw nanya ke mbaknya, dia bilang "Tapi ada persennya lo mbak?" Oh paling juga ongkos antar bank. Gw tanyalah berapa, mbaknya bilang 2,5%. Kok kayak zakat ya jadinya! Ternyata, nggak kok. Beneran nggak. Kayaknya mbaknya yg belum paham betul ya. Ya maklum aja, di sini masih cinta duit cash meskipun 20 juta pun bayar cash. Heran gw. Pertama kali gw coba pake QRIS waktu beli obat. Vitamin C IPI itu lho kan murah tho, gw beli 4 waktu itu cuma 15ribu sekian. Trus ga bawa cash gw, sering ga ada cash. Mau debit juga minimal 50 ribu kan. Ga ada ovo. Trus ngeliat "Eh ada QRIS. Bisa ya mbak pake QRIS meskipun ga sampai 50 rb?" Mbaknya bilang bisa dong! Ya bahagia gw.  Sejak itu kemana-mana bayarnya gw selalu QRIS. Kalau bisa QRIS ya gw pake QRIS. Lagi-lagi karena penasaran, ternyata emang bisa bayar berapapun. Gw per
