Beautiful Landscape, Tea, Lake, and Birds

What a nature can give to us? Many things, from what we can see to what we can only feel. A feeling that one can rarely taste when they are stick with their agenda. The feeling that we can feel only in certain conditions.

Well, for example, in Toba, a big tectonic lake in Indonesia, we can find such feeling. Toba gave us a clean view of mountains and beautiful lake. Sound of water that soften our mind. Birds that keep singing their song. Winds that flowing soft through our ear.

Such feeling that I prefer to enjoy with a cup of tea, lifts up a lot of burden from me. I can think clearly, my life seems better, and most important is that I can free my imagination by inhaling fresh air.

Well, this feeling is rare for me although I studied next to Toba Lake itself. Agenda, tasks to be done, deadlines, things that makes me stress. I can be free now, enjoy my solitude for a while and think clearly. A peaceful feeling that everyone must have to move forward.


Well, what is this writing about? The title is confusing. Well it is about living in team, and surviving in team. What is living in team means to be? How could we live in team? What can we do to make our team moves forward constantly over time?

Team is a bunch of people, with their own functions and abilities, sharing it and using it to achieve a goal that everyone has been dreaming until the goal achieved. Well, it is an easy meaning. I think most of people can accept it. Why should live in team? Because so many tasks, works, activities are too hard to do alone. Living in team makes it easier to solve such things.

In team, because people using their own and other’s abilities, every one should do their function in team properly. In battle for example. If the team consist of five, then there must be a decoy, and others which will take on the opponents and killing them while allowing the decoy to get stronger. Team playing requires a quick to adapt trait in everyone to make the job easier to complete. Team playing also requires everyone to help for the others. No one chasing a single goal could live long in team. To live in a team, one must be willing to share their abilities and let each team member know that they are dependable without egoistic intention.

Well, after living in team, again, everyone must do their function properly. The tasks that have been assigned to them must be done correctly. The team’s vision and mission must be done as assigned to team member. As a member, don’t be affraid to do big tasks, but remember your position. Also, don’t be shy when doing small tasks. Remember, the smallest doesn’t mean the least priced.

Well, that’s the way to live in team while making the team growing. You can start it now.

Trying Our Best

Well, just like another journal, this is happened. I thought about this thing. Well, I am still thinking about this while writing as fact.

Why in all of sudden, I talk about trying our best? Well, things often happened not like how we want it to be. So I just thinking, maybe I haven’t try my best. Maybe I haven’t do my best. Maybe I miss something that makes this not perfect.

I remember Newton’s law that said, action is equals to reaction. So this makes it clear that we may have to do something with every effort we have. If we want the best to happen, we have to give our best to make best expected things to happen. Well, it is all because the world won’t give us more than we deserve.

I also remember karma. Everything is paid to us. Good or bad deeds, one day we will feel it paid. This karma thing sounds like Newton’s law. Well, yeah, it sounds alike. And both are still true, especially karma, because we see it and feel it directly. Unlike the law that must be calculated first. That is why everyone who believe in karma, trying their best to sprread the good karma. Because we expect good things to happen right?

I also remember that in thr Bible said, when we do bad deeds, God will pay us sevenfold, until seven generation. Well, what about good deeds? God will grant us a really best life. He will gave everything we want, we expect. Then it is really good to do things with our best right?

Remember, our best when we did it, we will have the best as result. Happy Sunday! 🙂

Teaching Your Kid

This writing is based on what I saw and I heard. I thought of things when I saw that. I write this because I feel everyone should know.

I was on my way to PI del, my campus, at 2 Feb 2012 when I was in a bus with a small annoying family. There was a boy with them, approximately less than five years old, along with his mom, grandma, and uncle.

What happened next was so annoying and rude. We had to stop in Parapat, a small town. When we stopped, the boy started to explore things because he felt so bored. He saw things and asking about that things. His mom scolded him and told him to shut. Then she added “Oh, I hate this kid!” I think, this kind of parent doesn’t deserve a longer life than 30 years old. She said that as if she was being the best when she was young. I think, she was so stupid and never asked her mother about things.

Then the mother felt so annoyed and gave the boy to his uncle. She kept scolding him. Then she light a cigarette and smoke while playing a very disturbing song that disturbed me so much. She showed her kid how to annoy people, how to behave egoistic, how to be a bad people.

Remember people, what you do in front of your children will be remembered by them. Behave nice and good. Don’t be a bad parent that makes your children becomes bad too. Teaching is not by scolding, not by spankings. Teaching is by showing, guiding, and caring.

Rising Counter

Well, tonight is the new year’s eve! What a great relief. Finally I can celebrate my birthday again. Every time, the year number is rising by one. Never by more or less. That is the counter that we all know will happen and felt by us. Then, what does that counter means? It depends on you! What will you do in the future is depend on you.

One bible verse said that we have to keep aware and stay sharp for anytime, God may come and take us all. For anytime everything could happen. Well, that’s one of many things I can’t disagree from the Bible. Stay sharp is the thing we must do. No slacking around nor being so lazy.

Other, I ever heard from my lecturer, I. Liem, a phrase that inspires so many students. The counter may rise, but the behavior must be better. Well, she is right. I can’t disagree too. Well, this is confusing for so many people said that they will change this year. This year will be better or something. I did say things like that before. I do not say that now. Because, yeah, many things could happen. I can even hardly keep myself doing good in an hour, how can I promise in a year?! Such a lie!

Well, then another people said that the new year increasing counter means we have to use our days by having fun! It means our day is getting shorter! Soon we will be soil and eaten by worms! They also right. We can’t waste our time? Having fun is important, but more important is that how to make that fun last until we see our grandchildren.

New year is just a rising number. How we use it is a different case. Be great this year and have a great party!

PS. Don’t forget to gather with those you love.


Whoa! yesterday my mom was going out of town, heading to another town, Sipaholon. Today, I must work hard. Why? Coz I’m in charge here. Well, yeah, my dad is in the house, but it doesn’t make any sense if I am being lazy. The fact is that my dad is going lazy, I am going too diligent!

I wake up, I have to clean my own room, make my own milk, even take my dog outside. Well, mom usually do the dog. So where’s the nanny thing? I have to feed dad’s birds, I have to stay with my grandma, cook, and don’t forget I have to do my homework and projects. That’s more like it!

And now, look what I have to do, body building, reading papers – the international paper, published by campus, not newspapers – about IT, stay with my girl, in the end, I do a solid single life today! Happy nanny time!



PS. I will play games too anyway 😀

Chaotic Morning

Udah tiga minggu ini ga gereja selama bulan Desember. Nah, ngblognya baru kali ini karena emang kepikirannya baru ini. Sungguh terlalu memang yah.

Awalnya udah niat mau ke gereja, alhasil bangun pun jam 08.48 dan acara di gereja mulai pada pukul 09.00. Memalukan kali rasanya kalau ga ke gereja. Lebih malu lagi ga dapat tempat duduk dan telat datang ke gereja.

Jadilah aku memutuskan untuk berdiam diri di asrama kampus dan merenungi kebodohan sendiri. Seketika aku bangun, ingatlah aku harus pinjam baju hitam untuk acara paduan suara. Nah, ternyata oh ternyata, ada yang berlari lari.

Mereka pun masuk ke kamar yang aku tempati dan mengunci pintu. Lae Irvan sama Faisal namanya. Cukup bingung juga mata yang masih pengen merem ini ngeliat dua orang lari lari on fire gitu. Mereka pun bilang mereka lari dari Bang Harry, abang asrama, karena disuruh ke gereja.

What a weirrd situation. Seketika aku dengar suara berisik dari selasar sebelah yang menandakan suasana chaos dari razia yang dilakukan bang Harry tterhadap iblis iblis berwujud mahasiswa malas. Lagsung aja aku pun semakin berdiam diri di kamar. Rrencananya mau merenung, malah ditimpa keterkejutan.

Whatt a day! What will happen in the rest of day?! I am stressed now.
