I know You love me,,,



The sixteenth of February of 2017. 01.47 (WITA)

"When it hurts-observe. Life is trying to teach you something". I do love this quote for the first time I read it. The writer absolutely confronts with many things in her/his life. It is like heading to my self also actually. Anyway I get three rejection at once today. Please never think it is a disclaimer from a man to me guys. It is totally not about that case however I do not have to tell you specifically here hehehe. Yeah I just want to inform you that triple disclaimer has met me today. Blue? Sad? disappointed? Surely yes but I have to realize if my willing to reach them is not my destiny. I back to the quote again, for the next chance I should prepare everything as well as possible. The past teaches me to do better again. Everything has a reason to appear in my life. For the writer of this quote, thank you very much to write it. Thanks to Allah which has showed this daily quote. I know you love me :')

Banyak hal yang memang tak harus dipaksakan dalam hidup ini. Ketika kita sangat mengharapkan sesuatu untuk terwujud ingatlah akan selalu ada resiko di balik semua itu. Keberhasilan atau kegagalan. Saya masih sangat percaya bila Tuhan memiliki skenario terbaik untuk saya. Jika kita tak pernah mencoba kita tidak akan pernah tahu hasil dari kerja keras kita. Saya meyakini bila saya sudah berlayar ke arah yang tepat untuk melanjutkan perjalanan saya ini. Sekali saya memutar arah maka sudah jelas bila saya gagal berlabuh ke arah tujuan saya. Bila saya berhenti maka sudah saya pastikan saya akan tenggelam atau dimakan hiu di tengah lautan. Sisa waktu yang akan menentukan kapan saya tenggelam atau apa yang akan mengancam hidup saya selama tertahan di lautan. Syukur-syukur kalau ada yang datang menyelamatkan kalau tidak ada sama sekali ya resiko ditanggung sendiri wkkwkwk. Yah pada intinya saya sudah kencang makan asam garam kekecewaan namun bukan berarti saya harus berhenti begitu saja. Selalu ada banyak pelajaran yang saya dapatkan dari setiap perjuangan yang saya tempuh. Entah itu pengalaman baru, teman baru bahkan kisah baru yang akan berlanjut. Banyak mimpi yang belum terwujud, banyak cerita yang harusnya sudah saya tulis  di blog ini tapi Allah masih ingin melihat saya untuk berusaha lebih keras lagi sambil mengaduh pada-Nya. Saya percaya kejutan tak terduga akan segera datang dan saya tahu Allah mencintai saya lebih dari cara saya mencintai-Nya. Ngomong-ngomong saya benar-benar penasaran dengan  kejutan itu :D

Live in Your Life!


The Seventh of February of 2017. 12.07 AM (WITA)

When a busy wind was blowing hard to touch the earth, I was busy to blow away my future in my thought. Tonight I felt all of my burdens were piling me up. Since some days ago till tonight I have gotten several great news. As from 4th February one of my friends has arrived in his dream country, Australia. He is success to be a graduate student in Monash University for the next two years. Then, one of my mates will follow him also in Aussy. She has told me that about 14th February she will fly to Aussy to continue her dream also for studying abroad. Yeah, she is going to be a student of Queensland University in Australia. Then, tonight I received an awesome news also from two of my friends who are a couple. They will marry in this month. Wowww, I was so excited when getting a text from my friend. After six years in leading their special relationship finally they decided to marry this year. Because of this happy news suddenly my friend who never I met again since graduated in the university chatted me for the first time. Starting to talk about my friends wedding till talking about our past were the contents of our chat tonight. There was one thing that really surprise me with her, it was about her special relationship from one person to different person. Then you know what? Right now she has a special relationship again but different with her previous love stories, today her special one is her classmate in the campus. It's really something for me. How come you find your soul after graduate in the university whereas you are in the same class? It was my first question when knew this information. I just laughed during the conversation with her tonight. Too much LOL in my chat I thought. Around few minutes later, I found a message again unfortunately, this one was a bad news. One of my Professors in my campus has passed away. This unbelievable news is still swarming in my head right now. Closer to the dark night I received this last news for today. A mourning news has closed Monday then moved to Thursday.

The wind was still increasingly busy to hoof all of trees around my home than I was busy to remember the series of story today. From some blithe news till a sad news, all at once I returned to guess my future again. Some of my friends have reached their desire to study abroad this year. I saw the process of their struggle in pursuing their dream. Yeah, it was not an easy way to face what you have faced right now. What they have done today are their big dream in the past then you know what? They did it. I am so envy with people who success to prove that they can make themselves to be proud. On the other hand, they are my motivations to push my dream comes true as soon as possible. Yeah, I still run to catch my goal in UK. When I realize that one by one of my friends have reached their dream then others have married  and will marry in this year, I have a big question in my mind. What have I done to find my real life??? am I in my way to meet my goal??? I am trapped in a dilemma situation. On different sides, I am still on fire to study abroad yet I cannot deny if now I am in a period where I should find a man who will accompany my days till the end of time. So, should I marry soon too???

Ahhhh,,,,, I confuse to make a deal with the time. I have promised to my self to go overseas before 25th years old then will marry in 27th years old but it is about the time again. When the time agrees to allow me continue my dream in the UK or perhaps the time changes my destiny to go abroad in somewhere. Then, for my future prince, when will you come to knock my heart? After 25th years old or before it. It is my pleasure if we can meet this year so, I can tell every single dreams of mine. I do hope you support me and carry me on to be closer in my dreams together with you. Anyway, who are you? Have we met before? Do you know me firstly or I know you firstly? Are you my mate in the school or in the university? Probably are you my family???? Wowww, it is so funny to guess you by the way wkkwkkw. Ok, let the time and Allah arrange the scenario of my life. I deem with HIM indeed cause HE is the best guide for every single steps of my days. Like handling our future career till our future mate, HE is the owner of our life also. We can set many plannings to the further however HE knows better for our road later on. We also truly do not know which one will come firstly our obituary, our marriage, or our graduation. 

Several rows of news today wake me up that whatever it takes you will meet with a death as a sureness in the end. Like trees where they will survive to life as one of creatures of God. Everyday they are stuck in working to help people in the universe to life although people sometime forget the existence of them. Then slow but sure the trees will perish cause of their age. Like us as a human, sometime we are busy to enjoy the life then forget our real goal is to return to Allah actually. This world is just a stopover to continue our next step, yeah an eternity after the world.

IELTS Republic



Go Home or Go Abroad! Yup, motto ini merupakan penyemangat bagi para IELTS Fighters yang masih terus berjuang mendapatkan skor idaman mereka di komunitas ini. IELTS Republik merupakan komunitas baru yang diusung sekitar empat bulan lalu oleh seorang pejuang IELTS juga. Beliau berinisiatif untuk mengumpulkan orang-orang yang memiliki tujuan yang sama, yeah menaklukan IELTS! Berawal dari ngumpul-ngumpul bersama beberapa teman-temannya untuk belajar IELTS akhirnya beliau mengusulkan untuk membuat komunitas IELTS. Tak berselang lama, pada akhirnya info komunitas ini sampai juga ke telinga saya. Sekitar bulan Oktober 2016 saya mulai ikut bergabung di komunitas ini. Saat pertama kali ikut ada banyak wajah baru dan wajah yang memang sudah pasaran di mata saya. Beberapa di antara mereka adalah senior dan junior di kampus yang memang sudah sering saya temui berkeliaran di jurusan dan beberapa lagi diantaranya adalah mahasiswa sekaligus alumni dari beberapa perguruan tinggi di Makassar. 

Pada awal terbentuknya, kami juga sempat bingung memberi nama apa pada komunitas ini. Beberapa nama yang masuk akal hingga nama yang agak ehmmm,,, you will know later lah after I mention those names. Front Pembela IELTS (FPI), Baitul IELTS, IELTS Station, IELTS School, IELTS for us, dan masih banyak lagi nama-nama yang menurut saya bikin syokk sekaligus bikin ngakak wkkwkwkwk. Setelah perdebatan yang sengit terhadap pemilihan nama yang membuang-buang waktu (Sekaligus kuota juga sih) untuk diskusi di grup WhatsApp akhirnya kami memutuskan to stand on IELTS Republic as the name of this community. Yeah, akhirnya setelah belajar IELTS bersama-sama sekitar beberapa minggu akhirnya komunitas inipun punya sebutan jadi nggak bingung lagi harus ngomong apa sama orang-orang yang terus bertanya tentang komunitas ini. Well, singkat cerita IELTS Republic mulai mendapat tempat di kalangan pemburu beasiswa lainnya di Makassar. Dari yang awalnya cuma sekitar dua, tiga, empat sampai lima orang sekarang Alhamdulillah sudah hingga belasan orang yang ikut nongkrong buat belajar IELTS tiap minggunya. Selain semangat belajar IELTS, teman-teman di komunitas ini juga selalu semangat buat ikut program simulasi IELTS, pameran pendidikan hingga workshop beasiswa. Bisa dibilang para anggota di komunitas ini lincah dan gesit kalau urusan seperti ini karena selain dapat ilmu dan informasi kami juga bisa membawa pulang goody bag gratis wkkwkwkw (Modus utama). Nah, berikut beberapa foto kegiatan kami selama nongkrong bareng di IELTS Republic.

Itulah beberapa penampakan dari kegiatan-kegiatan kami selama belajar di IELTS Republik. Beberapa wajah yang tertera di atas merupakan para IELTS Fighters sekaligus Scholarship Hunters. Kebanyakan dari kami merupakan para pemburu beasiswa ke UK dan Australia. Selain belajar IELTS, di sini kalian juga bisa menemukan teman seperjuangan untuk mendaftar beasiswa. Banyak info beasiswa yang akan sering kalian dapatkan selama ikut di IELTS Republic why? karena di sinilah tempat berkumpulnya para pemburu beasiswa yang memang mempunyai rutinitas untuk mengubek-ubek jenis dan macam informasi beasiswa yang lagi trend. Kalau kalian cuma tahu beberapa jenis beasiswa, di komunitas ini kalian akan menemukan beberapa info beasiswa menarik lainnya plus informasi cara daftar dari beberepa anggota yang sudah pernah apply sebelumnya (walaupun gagal ckckkc). Untuk yang penasaran sama beberapa jenis beasiswa silahkan klik link ini untuk mengetahui beberapa jenis beasiswa yang pernah saya share sebelumnya.  

So, if you stay in Makassar area and interested with this community just come and join with us to catch your IELTS score. Jadwal belajar kami rutin dilaksanakan setiap hari sabtu dan minggu pukul 13.30 WITA atau jam setengah siang di warkop bundu talasapang atau di Yes cafe Citra Land Hertasning. Kadang-kadang kita juga ngesatnite belajar IELTS di kediaman seorang senior yang juga merupakan alumni dari Edinburgh University yang berlokasi di BTN Pao-pao Permai. Untuk masalah lokasi dan jadwal belajar kalian bisa update di group WhatsApp IELTS Republik. Untuk yang belum join di group WA silahkan kepoin akun Instagram kami @Ieltsrepublic. Untuk para readers sekalian khususnya yang tinggal di sekitaran Makassar, yukk ikut nimbrung belajar bersama kami. Modal kalian hanya bawa diri dan siap pusing bareng mengerjakan soal IELTS. 

SO, Go Home or Go Abroad???
