Three lifes in four worlds October 28, 2008

Okay now I’m officially become the president of the next upcoming KMK’s event which is Christmas. After spending about two years in college life, this is actually a thing that I’ve never imagined before.
Two years ago, I was just a freshman who entered college just like any other kids. And at that time I thought that I don’t want to spend my college life studying just like most other students do, I have to appear differently. So I ended up join in two organizations which are HIMTI (Himpunan Mahasiswa Teknik Informatika) and KMK (Keluarga Mahasiswa Katolik). But, I know there is always a ‘but’, it was not as simple as I thought it was. Just as I spent my time with those two activities, I also spared my time with my high school friends, hanging out with them. Or to put it simply, I have three worlds and each world gave me different things, or value. I didn’t stuck in just one world, so I could get and learn about things which another world couldn’t give me.

I was so sure that I can fit those three worlds together so I added another world. My own world. I learnt things that those three worlds couldn’t give me. But I don’t recall saying that my world is a lifestyle because I did it all by myself. I had put spending time with my high school friends to the top priority because it’s fun, it’s a real lifestyle. And because of that, my other world crashed, I was confuse which one I should prioritize at certain time. But after spending one-two years hanging out with them something triggered my whole world and say that it’s over. Starting with Franco got a girlfriend made me realize that things couldn’t go to the way it used to be. All good things has come to an end and I was starting spending less time with them and they had been becoming to the last in my to-do-list. I guess I was too naive at that time to think that I could fit all of the worlds together.

So that I accepted an offer to become the president of Christmas event, and suddenly all of my time is spent with KMK. I believe that this could boost up my confidence to a level that I will never know. But as strange as it may sound, I am enjoying this. Maybe it’s just another challenge that I should face when you want to be better and better.

How To Be Popular (part 3) October 12, 2008

If you’re not popular, it’s important to examine the possible reasons why.

There could be many reasons, of course.
* Do you suffer from body odor?
* Do you have acne?
* Are you particularly over- (or under-) weight?
* Are you class clown (prctice inappropriate humor)?

Probably not, since the above are all easily remedied through cosmetic products, diet and exercise, and self-control.

If you answered no to the above questions, then your case of unpopularity is more serious.

Your unpopularity might be something you brought upon yourself.

Suppose you once did something horrible, something that made you unpopular. What can you do about it? Can you ever live it down?

Let’s begin by determining your level of popularity, or lack thereof:

Ask yourself how others in your social sphere perceive you.

Do they know who you are? If so, how do they treat you?

Do they make rude remarks about you behind your back, or to your face?

Do they ignore you?

Do others include you in their outings and activities, inviting you to social events or occasions?

Judging by the behaviour of others around you, you should be able to tell whether you are liked, merely tolerated or totally unpopular.

If you are merely tolerated or totally unpopular, it is time to take action.

Okay, what the hell is going on exactly. It’s two o’clock in the morning but someone calls me. I try to look at the number but it’s private number and this is not the first time actually. I’ve been receiving the same call since about two months ago and it’s always the same, late midnight, private number. I tried to answer it and got a girl voice asking my name, I didn’t know what the hell she was thinking about. So I turn it off.

And now she’s calling me back, I answer it but I don’t speak, I just keep the phone on and try how long this idiot is gonna stay. I try to hear her voice while I hold my breath, because you know, if I breath then she’s going to know that I’m listening to her actually. And this idiot is singing over the phone, I don’t even know what song she is singing.
And then she turns it off.
I figure out that she is going to call again soon so I stay awake for a while. And there she goes again, but this time she let her number appear in my cell phone. Who does she think I am? a fool? The only one that’s going to call me this late is the one that knows that I always sleep late and that’s only limited to my friends. And of course I always have my friends’ cell phone number in my cell. So I do the same thing again,let the phone on and this time she stays for five minutes before she turns it off without even talking anything. What a freak!!

Well it’s basically based on one of Meg Cabot’s novel, so almost all of this things are for girls. But, like I said..almost..So you can basically sort it out and choose which fits you perfectly. All credits goes for her and I’ve categorized it specifically.

POPULAR: adj. Widely liked or appreciated; liked by acquaintances; sought after for company.

We all want it. Why? Because being popular means being liked. Everyone wants to be liked.

Sadly, however, not all of us are.

What do popular people have in common that makes them all so popular?

They all have:
* A friendly way about them
* An eagerness to pitch in and help get the job done
* An interest in everything that goes on at work or school
* A look that’s fresh and neat

These aren’t traits popular people were born with. They’ve cultivated the characteristics that make them so popular…

…and you can, too, by following the tips in this book!

The Game (Cont.) October 8, 2008

Here I am, wandering around in my favourite bookstore for about two hours. This place is full of books which I haven’t seen before, that’s why I’m very exicted every time I arrive. I have already had a list in my mind of what books I should buy, but the problem is I can’t decide which one I should prioritize first.
Well, I’m a little bit curious about a book which I haven’t seen since I arrive so I decide to go to Customer Service and ask about it.
“Excuse me.” I said to one of the guy there.
“Yes, can I help you?”
“Well, I’m looking for a book called ‘The Game’.”
“The Game?” The looks in his face tells me that he’s trying to guess what kind of book I’m talking about. Which I’m pretty sure that he doesn’t know.
“Ah, by Neil Strauss, isn’t it?” he said suddenly at the moment when I try to tell him its author.
“Yes it is.”
How many books titled The Game in this enormous place actually? but he knows which book I’m talking about. And yes, I know, I’m looking for a book which I have read several times and have changed the way I percieve about a lot of things in this world which basically, everything. So I think it’s worth it.
“I’m sorry but that book has already been sold out.” He explained
Of course it’s sold out, that’s why I can’t find it anywhere in this place. What was I thinking about?
“But there is a book called ‘The Rules Of The Game’ also by Neil Strauss.” He told me as if he knows my dissapointment.
And now it got my curiosity.
“Well, can you tell me where is it?” I wonder.
“Here, let me take you to it.” He offered

And now I’m holding the book and staring it. The book is in red cover showing a picture of high classed looking bald man sitting down in a king-looks-like chair while holding a glass and surrounded by four women. So I turn to back cover and read its summary-looks-like :

If you want to play The Game, you’ve got to know The Rules.
The Rules of the Game govern our lives, our prosperity and our happiness.
The Rules of the Game are emotional and not logical.
The Rules of the Game have been the same throughout human history, regardless of race, culture or nationality.
The Rules of the Game are immutable.
The Rules of the Game can get you laid, loved, married, immortalized.
They can also get you betrayed, dumped, depressed, stalked, beaten, stabbed, shot.
Handle them with care – for with great power comes great responsibility.

And now I’m looking for a place to sit and read. And there I find it, in the corner of one of the bookshelf. I sit on the floor where people pass by and might be staring at me, but I don’t care. The unique thing in this place is that you can sit wherever you want as long as you’re not getting in other people’s way.
So I read carefully page by page by page and find out that this is a guide book where it contains of thirty days and each days contain several missions which need to be accomplished. The purpose of this book is to eliminate insecurities, get out of your comfort zone and doing things that you probably never imagine before. Things that might have been holding you back to become a better person.

And so I decide that this book is worth it and buy it.
Let the game begin.
