Past is dead and gone so forgive them

1 Comment

Every day we make excuses keeping us from doing one thing or another. Why? What do excuses help us to achieve? Many people, myself included, have made excuses why not to change jobs, no matter how miserable you may be. You might say, I’m making good money, the benefits are really good here, or I don’t want to go through the trouble of rolling over my 401k. Others make up excuses about their health, I don’t have time to work out, vegetables taste bad, or there’s a pill that will take care of that. With simple statements like those we don’t even consider looking for a new job which might pay more or have better benefits. We don’t take 20 minutes out of our day to go for a walk, do some crunches, or even try healthy foods. So what causes us to make these excuses?

A negative attitude established through negative thinking develop excuses. When people see change they often make excuses because change is scary to them. Change brings up questions we may not have all the answers to. Many people come up with negative answers without giving it a second thought. If every answer to a question about change were negative, why would you ever consider a change? People who look at change from a positive perspective get results. By accepting that change might be a good thing you open up many possibilities to earn more, look and feel better, be happier, and enjoy life in new and exciting ways. Just accepting that change might be a good idea is a great step, but it’s just the first step.


I am ready to move


3rd one… love and interaction. LOVE??!! Yeah… it sounds cliche, but I guess everything in this world… if you want it to go well, it must be based on Love
I read an artice once, which says people become more interested in you as you are in them. Some instructors just come, keep blabbering while students are yawning, sneakily checking facebook from their mobile and keep hoping for the time to pass quickly…. and those instructors just end the class session with another short speech. From the students reaction, you can tell that those instructors are boring people. It’s sad to teach for 10 years and be forgotten right when you dont teach that certain class anymore. You fail to do your job, and you may fail as a human by wasting your time doing things nobody care Actually I was inspired to write the third problem when I finished watching a dorama where a teacher is regretting his being He teaches and nobody cares… and it all changes when he starts paying attention and begins to love his students. The students start loving him, and get motivated to learn from him.

It’s not like things in dorama doesnt happen if that’s what you think. It does! I’ve got a killer instructor once. He transparently corrected our mistakes in front of everyone with the way you’ll never like. He embarassed you so… with his words, but you couldnt get back at him because he was just out of your reach. Style? Brain? Charisma? He got em all But as we went on with our major, we knew he only did that so that we tried to change… so we wouldnt be embarrased anymore. As time passed, the instructor still looked unfriendly but deep inside, everyone loved him. It’s a true story.
Third Lesson : love your job and people who are part of them. They make you who you are and make your job becomes more worthwhile. People are measured by what they do, if you are fail at whatever it is, well… consider you fail to become anybody

Aside from that, I still love English, Basdat, and Aljabar They’re still challenging and I just cant miss any of them. That Risal guy looks like he is like any of other boring instructor, but he is actually different. At least recently I noticed he tried to slow down and he used simpler terms often… he makes the class seems fun too by sharing a piece of his mind Basdat is fun as HELL… poenten becomes harder and challenging to get, yet it makes it seems worthwhile!

Guess appreciating what life throws at you is not bad at all. Makes you less stressful and happier. It may even be part of destiny’s play. What I truly need to make my DREAMS COME TRUE!!

I’m entering the third weeks of the 2nd semester. Still feel like playing aroundUTS is still a long way away. It’s easier to study when you treat it as a game, when it’s as enjoyable as playing a real game. That goes for BASDAT practice session (not the theory though… it’s boring… drives me to sleep with a total memorizing concept) then PBO, everything Math related and English.

English is COOL!! wish we could’ve done more though. We’ve gone through our first presentation… it’s so short and our class ended just like that. I did bad so I wanted to do morebut ahh well… there’s still another chance, and with an instructor like Mimi… class will be worth to look forward to.

I never really think highly of ASDOS (instructor’s assistant)On the 1st semester, we had 2 girls as ASDOS. I had to play nice with them to get them to assist me. They’re also in charge of giving score to each of our performance. It was so-so my experience with female ASDOS.

For web programming, we had Ko Mike assisting us. He’s one nice guy, TOO NICE I think. People person is what’s best to describe him. I thought I was always good with web programming but I came to realise that I was wrong right on 2nd semester

A new ASDOS was introduced to us, he is in charge of PBO practice class. He should be a little older than us but he is ONE SOB ASSHOLE!!I’ve had two classes with him up till now, but none of it really helped me get a better understanding of the materials. To make things worse, he likes to SHOW OFF and we never realised that we had the disadvantages until it’s over. Last week, this guy gave us two normal exercises which were easy, and a special exercise which was not supposed to be hard but we COULDNT DO IT because we werent taught the formula yet. We just realised after he broke the answers to us. We requested the answer because we wanted to learn but he didnt want to give it to us. WTH??!! He said we had to look for it ourselves. YEAH RIGHT!! and it happened again this week… knowing we couldnt solve new exercises, he said it’s better he didnt give another exercise because we’d be at disadvantages with low scores, but even so… he gave us QUIZ!! what’s the difference here?? It’d only lower the class standards!! If he realised we were not up to it yet, he should’ve given a better explanation or make sure we can do it before he tested us.

I.T. in Maranatha is doomed if this keeps up. Students dont understand and yet they’re given high scores… it happened to me in JARKOM class. I was doing pretty good before UTS but I did beyond pathetic after that and yet… I was given better score than my friend who was WAY WAY better than me on this subject. I even got a whopping 80 for my UAS score eventhough I didnt understand any of itI bet the instructor lost our work and had to give the score randomly. It took him too long to give us our result.

Back to POB ASDOS… he’s like an opposite of Ko Mike, with him in charge… I didnt really understand what was discussed, the way he explaining is confusing and he is arrogant and hateful, but with Ko Mike… everything is a breeze. He taught us patiently and kindly. Now that I think about it, I could pass Web Prog with flying colours thanks to him!! If he wasnt around… I dunno if I could like the class because I’m sure I’d hate the class because I wont really understand it as better with him around.

Some of us have given up on this POB subject because of this boring ASDOS who only wants respect that he’ll never get. Sadly, some of us who were very enthusiastic during Web Prog are losing hope and not interested in the subject anymore. I hope there’s still any book in the library that could help Programming is fun and it’d be a waste to let this guy ruin the fun.

Second semester is here!! up to the 4th day of it, it’s hard to tell that it will be interesting. Assuming things are not good, so I’d just call this guessingSeems like Rizal-sensei, Mimi or Mini again? Forgot her name, and Fured-sensei are the only ones that didnt drive me to sleep from the introduction session. Haven’t really got to know the materials and stuffs, but what’s important is the instructors. Even the most interesting subject will seem dull if the instructor himself teaches half-heartedly or is not confident with himself.

That Rizal guy seems like an open-minded instructor,
Fured sensei broke the old-school style by introducing the poenten system and…
Mimi is….. well… I had hoped for a foreign instructor who never came in the end but at least Mimi is WAY WAY WAY BETTER than the previous instructorIndonesian and Chinese are the easiest to speak English with.. and she speaks fluently and clear!! At least I’ll be able to improve on my favorite subject!

Another passing-through valentine…
Why do the girls hardly give any chocolate to guy? Isn’t that the purpose of this so-called valentine day? If only it’s like in Japan *sigh* drama in life…
It bugs me every february… Being so picky, maybe I’ll have to continue fighting with J-Idols and anime girls in mind…
