Menulis itu

indah.. Laughing out loud

Moment of remembrance

Ketika ku melihat mentari terbit di ufuk,
Ku tau bahwa ini adalah moment ku,
Ku kan tak gentar,
Ku kan tak putus asa,
Kan ku jalani hingga sampai,
Kan ku hadapi.

Tiada sesal bersisa,
Kan ku selalu ingat,
Mentari yang indah itu.

Tahun 2010

Posting pertama di tahun ini.

Moga-moga bukan posting yang terakhir. 

Huehue... sedang mencoba dengan segala daya dan upaya menyelesaikan thesis.. moga2x tahun ini selesai *amin*.

Natal dan Tahun baruan di taon 2009 mungkin jadi yang paling berkesan. Di awali dengan penuh semangat untuk menyelesaikan beberapa bab dan beberapa eksperiment. Lalu seiring waktu liburan berjalan, ternyata susah banget. Apalagi klo weekend juga dipake untuk ngerjain thesis... lama2x suntuk bo. Dan kebetulan di rumah juga sedang home alone.. Anywy, akhirnya tanggal 24 pun diputuskan untuk pergi ke kantor, dengan rencana misa malam natal di city, terus bisa langsung loncat ke bus untuk pulang ke rumah. Huehue it was my first christmas without anyone I love around me. Jadi sendirian gitu deh.. di Gereja...Kebetulan waktu itu misa sebelumnya baru aja selesai. Sambil setengah menyumpah2x ke diri sendiri, karena ngeliat banyak orang dewasa yang ikut misa tersebut. Padahal misa tersebut untuk anak2x. Ku kira orang dewasa yang belum punya anak, ngga boleh ikutan. Akhirnya pun duduk di barisan agak depan, berhubung masih sepi.Nah,di sinilah keajaiban natal dimulai. Tiba2x ada ibu2x tua mendekat, terus bertanya "Are you on your own?",terus ku jawab "Yes, I am". Eh tiba2x si ibu itu bilang "Come and sit near here, you'll be become a part of our small family in this mass". Ternyata si ibu2x itu datang berdua dengan suaminya. Baru kali ini ngeliat orang sebaik itu.Huehue.. singkat cerita, akhirnya jadi ngobrol2x banyak sama si ibu itu. Dia cerita klo dia juga punya anak, tapi lagi di Scotland, jadi pas ngeliat gw dia seperti ngeliat anaknya. hueheu jadi kaya dianggep anak deh. Dan akhirnya, perayaan natal pun aku diijinkan untuk merayakan bersama keluarga. Ah senangnya. Aku sangat bersyukur dengan hal ini. Ternyata si ibu itu juga pendoa, jadi didoain deh diakhir2x misa. 

Mulai nulis lagi?

Akhirnya ada juga waktu untuk ngeberesin website yang udah dianggurin mayan lama...

yok yok mulai ngeblog sedikit2x.

A Prayer

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.

where there is hatred, let me sow love;

where there is injury, pardon;

where there is discord, harmony;

where there is doubt, faith;

where there is error, truth;

where there is sadness, joy;

where there is darkness, light;

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so

much seek to be consoled as to console;

Polar Coordinate Plotter

When tidying up my storage on the last weekend, I accidentally found my old undergrad archives. Well, it's quite surprising so many things I made. Especially, I just realised that I wrote code for helping me to understand polar coordinate (Hell yes, I did some coding stuff in Calculus course). Motivated by a willingness to share with others, I post my polar coordinate plotter.

Winter is coming

Started with rainy and stormy days, cooling down temperature, low humidity. Winter is coming to town! Now I can sleep without getting sweating. But the problem is, it's getting colder and colder in every morning which bother me to take a shower.

Right, what was happened after my confirmation seminar has over? Many things actually. I got some people visited me for a week on the day after the confirmation. Had fun in Australia Zoo, Gold Coast. Also, I did volunteering in Heroes Happens event (That was one of Microsoft events). And now, I'm preparing for a speaking engagement in a QUT-wide Microsoft event. My research? Still on going. Still waiting for the big thing from my supervisor. Meanwhile, I'm writing some codes assisting me in the experiment.

PhD Candidate, I am now

At last, after having a very long seminar (50-min presentation) I finished it. Yupe, all of my two-month effort has been paid two days ago, when the panels said that I did a good job. Well, although I was quite disappointed by myself which didn't do well in the presentation part, but that's why they call PhD as a research apprentice.

I had not many questions. The questions were around my research direction and boundary. I was expecting that someone could give some valuable feedbacks on my method. But, it didn't happen. Well, regarding to research direction, I got some good feedbacks I guess. Specifically, now, I have to consider seriously for my case studies, and start very soon, or otherwise I'll be trapped in this crazy course (never get a thesis done).

Urgent Vs Important

Just had a meeting with my principal supervisor this afternoon. He mentioned something subtlety defined. Let say A be my supervisor, and B be Arnold.

A: Arnold, there is something different between urgent matters and important matters
B: ??
A: Your confirmation seminar is urgent because you have to do it soon, but not as important as your research.
B: So, you mean I have to set my research as the first priority?
A: Do your confirmation since it's urgent, but don't ignore your research.

Okay, now I know. Urgent matters are not always important, and important matters should not be ignored. What a wise advice.
