Going 30

The blog rearrarengement got me decided to put ‘Movies’ category on the menu although I know I’ve never written much about movies. Talking about movies, actually I’m not a moviegoer type. I don’t watch TV (in case you wonder, yes I do have TV in my room but I rarely turn it on). I enjoy and to the cinema regularly with friends but I don’t mind skipping new movies if I don’t have spare times. Growing up with dreams of being an animator, I love cartoon and animation. If you think that Pixar and Studio Ghibli are not total genius and interesting, we aren’t going to be good friends unfortunately :p When I was in university, I joined a film and photography club and met a lot of movie buff or in the other words: got introduced to wide range of movie genre including film festival material movies. Anything but horror and thriller movies is acceptable for me. Beside cartoon and animation, I really like romantic comedy movies. It’s not easy to admit it but …

A Gift and Letter in the Morning

When was the last time you received a letter? I just had one this morning, handwritten letter, delivering thoughts, best wishes and prayer from Prisanti Putri (also known as Cupris). To make it beyond beautiful, it came along with a pair of cute white bunny flat shoes (which perfectly sums a couple of things I really like: white, cute bunny, and flat shoes). She said that she had read my LDM post and told me about her be-missed sister in Scotland. She really wanted to make me feel better. If you know Cupris already, you might not be so surprised by her act of thoughtfulness. She is one of the most thoughtful people I’ve ever met. No, not because she sent me a gift. I’ve known her since I joined film & photography club in university (which has always been full of thoughtful people) and seen how she treated her friends and close friends, how she made everyone felt special. I’ve been reading her blog for years (and her blog is always on my ‘oh-let’s-do-blogwalking-where-should-I-start’ mental list). …

Tips Menjadi Mahasiswa ITB

Pertama saya ingin mengucapkan selamat untuk adik saya, Zakki, yang berhasil mengikuti jejak saya (GL ’07) dan Ayah (TI ’81) masuk Institut Teknlogi Bandung (ITB). Waktu saya kuliah ada bercandaan yang bilang kalau kuliah di ITB itu susahnya 3x. Susah masuk, susah bertahan, dan susah keluar (lewat Sabuga alias wisuda). Sebagai salah satu survivor yang IQ-nya rata-rata saja di kampus, bercandaan itu benar adanya. Namun demikian kuliah di ITB adalah salah satu masa paling indah untuk saya :) Untuk adik-adik yang baru mau masuk ITB (terutama adik saya), berikut list of “Things You Should Do” berdasarkan pengalaman saya. 1) Tidak menyepelekan mata kuliah 2 SKS. This one is quite personal for me. Saya termasuk mahasiswa yang nggak terlalu cemerlang soal hitung-hitungan. Untungnya saya masuk Teknik Geologi yang lebih banyak hafalannya. Waktu TPB saya klenger banget sama yang namanya KALKULUS dan sialnya kalkulus itu 4 SKS, hahaha. Biarpun sudah belajar mati-matian tetap saja nilainya jongkok :p Akhirnya saya pun tau diri dan all out di semua pelajaran lain yang dianggap orang lain kurang penting karena bobotnya …
