Beep Beep Agression!


I've got the homework to write a hundred numbers of multiple choice exercises two weeks ago. Lucky me, it was handwriting. Tired? Just try. I felt like I lost my right hand afterwards. Look at them :

As the digital generation, those 'formulas' above must be overwhelming our daily life. They instantly make everything easier in a fast snappy way. No need to waste the inks in vain, no need to waste our energies, no need to waste our money (read : time) or either to move from our comfort seat. Through the monitor we can be another Dora, explore the amazing sceneries in this universe. From the inside of the windows, we'll discover anything, the oldest chronicle up to the hottest gossip that happening. Simply type this and click that one and you're going to jump anywhere; to the furthermost galaxies, to the top of the world, to the deepest trenches, nevertheless to imagine how the heaven is. Also, a lot of social medias lie around in the internet presently. As teenager, who doesn't love to express our emotions and creativity? Therefore, it has always been the best choice to share them all, likewise, make us forget all of our problems.

Computer seems aid our life. What kind of drug is it? Heroine? That make us relax? Cocaine? and you'll be happy all the way? The ecstasy? which going to make you sank in that euphoria? The point is, we are addicted. Facebook, twitter, tumblr; almost everyone has one or even all of them. Tweeting rapidly, loads of images in your dashboard, billions notifications at the homepage; once you've signed in, you're going to post everything, and look, it's very interesting yet annoying. Yes, you throw your trouble away, but have you ever realize where it's going to fall? Indeed, anyone could share anything, and the ignominy included. The monitor lets you face your overseas friend, you'll be glad. It juxtaposes the distance, and sets apart the proximity. Sit along in front of the computer, forget the problem, forget the distance, forget the meals, forget the time, forget where have you been, and forget who's your mom. It simplifies the job. Over time, you're about to be comfort with the zone, too comfort to move, and as the second goes by, the lazier person you'll be. You might feel awesome but you just end up being awkward.

Who's the brainware? Who can't live without another now? Anyway, computer does without doubt give us its benefits more often than not. But don't be enslaved by them. N E V E R .


Beyond The Whiteboard

The image above shows us how Teacher is in people's mind. How about yours? How about the students' opinion? Are they allowed to grade their own teacher?

Well, it's very common nowadays. Have you graded them? Oh do you? You must be having your own favorite teacher or might be the 'no-no' ones. Don't be lie. You had one.

In the certain conditions, it can be useful and free of faults, indeed, with the appropriate ways. However, still, the respect term must be inveterate inside. With the rights of speaking up, it doesn't mean we (as student) can judge and mark our teacher freely in the public or everywhere; definitely, not. We have those cultures of politeness which provide the normative excuses to do such things. Obey that rules and both of sides will control their attitude towards each other.

Not only the students can learn from the teacher, but either the teacher can learn from their students. Teacher may do the mistakes too, and the students are allowed to correct them. It forms the spiritual atmosphere and certainly improves the quality of teaching. Teachers can evaluate how should they teach and provide the lessons. Have the students understood? Have they caught what the teachers offered? Teachers are going to discover what the students LIKE or DISLIKE about their teaching methods or whether the content was difficult or easy to absorb. The class might be more conducive if the teachers successfully make the pupils enjoy and comfort to seat there.

Anyway, grade itself means mark given for work in school. The teachers do work at school, ain't they? Grading them (with apostrophized, in the right way) means grading the parameter of the school or institution where the give they classes. Being a teacher is hard. Therefore they can't let them serve it alone. They deserved appreciations and so do the improvements. Students need them, and the teachers cannot let themselves teach no one. Yes, the students are not mature or experienced enough though. Most of them are still influenced by the emotion, labile, and fragile. And yes it's a fact that when the teachers could steal their pupils' eyes or heart and drive their emotions, there wouldn't be a very big deal in the learning process taken.

I swear gossiping our teacher is bad. But I'm not so naive, we need to let them know how we want them or the class to be. Well, I have my own favorite guru. She did make me like this. I just wonder how if all of the teachers in the world do the same things to their students.



"A Voteless People is a Hopeless People." I once savvied that phrase upon a night before The Dormitory's Election few weeks ago. Ya, seemed not to be outdone by government, my boarding school was bombarded with those ballots stuffs. The democracy's being misspelled lately, as it goes crazy.

As Wikipedia said, democracy is a form of government in which all eligible citizens have an equal say in the decisions that affect their lives. While there is no universally accepted definition of "democracy," equality and freedom have both been identified as important characteristics of democracy since ancient times. Elections have been the usual mechanism by which modern representative democracy has operated since the 17th century. Elections in Indonesia have taken place since 1955.

Direct, public, independent, private, fair, and conscionable are the characteristics of it. Fair, has it been fair enough? Let's see.

I'm not even 16 yet. But politic is not 'juju' anymore in my ears, and so is the democracy. Election exists to fuse both of them. It's the simplest way to express our freedom. It could be done directly nearby your home and no need to make a huge gathering in a place like in the ancient time. You'd be independent to choose any choice in a private chamber. You'd only have once opportunity to vote with the ink on your little finger when you've done yours. Therefore, the idea of election made the democratic party run well as a fair condition.

In another side, there are intersections among its process where the frauds may appear. At the time, there would be a campaigns party everywhere. The banners, orations, brochures, pamphlets, printed-tshirts, and so on. Where were the frauds? If anyone could show where the boundary of fairness takes place nowadays, it would be easy to answer that question. How can we decide which one was the fraud and which one's fair? Looks so hazy and foggy. Besides, the campaign party always made those eyesores. The parties became on fire with the competitions and forgot the goal of campaigning itself. It built some monopoly that under17 kid like me knew nothing. They say Politic is crafty yet cunning. The more they're powerful, the more opportunity of authorizing the 'power' they have.

Anyway, here is Lincoln's famous phrase; government of the people, by the people, and for the people. So, it returns to our hands. How we handle it and make some actions that is real and clear. My teacher said this, ask not what your country has given to you, but ask what you have given to your country. Fasten your safety belt , get ready and get set. Your vote is your voice. Be heard. Let's make a better country, Indonesia waits for you.


Little Red Riding Books

No, I'm not mistyping my title. I'm not talking about the story your Grandmomma told you when you were younger, but it's about my youngest cousin. I just wonder why an Elementary School Student who should be willing to go home with giggles and chuckles, hugged her mum and dad like how they wondered, and she did not.

She came home with her heavy bag (yes, instead of basket) which full of homework books (indeed, not the breads).

Away from the woods where The Little Red met the wolf, school becomes doubted about its paradigm as the 'second home'. Why? Every time we heard the teacher said the sacred word : Homework, we'd hope we never came back home.

How sacred it sounds for us?
At a glance, according to the dictionary, homework is work that a pupil does away from school. Yes, it makes them who haven't done it at home will be kicked out from the class. (Have you?) Refers to its goal as the way for students on sharpening their knowledge with exercises and preparations, homework's equipped with a precious messages called discipline. For them who own so many activities, homework's set in order of the time management. Furthermore, homework with a clear state of 'home' will personalizes the home-crews, there are Mom, Dad, and The siblings. The parents can be involved in the plot and control how their lovely sons or daughters do their school thingy. Yet, the atmosphere of a beautiful family constructs the enthusiasm of learning process. Moreover this kind of activity offers more time and a wider place to explore the sea of knowledge. Many different resources, ways, and things to do with the certain parts. As we know that we cannot only stand on the theory. Practicing the lessons would be fun and nevertheless we can discover something new which the world never realize.

How dare folks defeat the term is a different thing. Wiktionary tells its meaning with an additional example: You must do your homework before you can watch television. Then how if there are so many homeworks till you can't sleep or even eat? Does it build the fences between you and happiness? When this question's delivered to the High School pupils they put that rolling eyes for the answer. The more homework we get, the lesser time for being alive we have. The secondly reason for daring upon this is when I typed the word homework at the Urban Dictionary as I wanted to take a look on how nowadays people think about it. It was stated that, homework is unnecessary as it is given to students who have already spent the majority of the day at school. I just take one of so many different opinions there. Well, every people has their own perspective though. But this opinion shows that, actually it sounds harmful for us. It takes more time and effort to be done while it goals to sharpen our knowledge. But it's not only one subject offers the homework. If all of the teachers give us one in every lesson, how long it takes to be done? Beside the consideration to focus on each homework, of course.

How heavy the assessment we get is depending on how we lift it. Homework is relative yet absolute. If you wanna play The Hide & Seek with it, just choose to be the Seeker and never stop to discover. Because they're smarter enough to catch you while you're home. Enjoy or die. Do or regret. Soon, you'll miss home a lot after finding no work to be done at home when you're gonna be overtime at the office.

See where did I miss the tsp of sugars or peppers? Of course I missed a lot of flavors and I keep on feeding myself with this horrible sauces. No offense but, when I got the bills, I'd like not to see my purse. I'll use my ATM. Still pointless though.
