"Jai Ho" song & Excursion Study 2010

OK this is such stupid argument, but by listening to "Jai Ho" song (the OST of Slumdog Millionaire, performed by The Pussycat Dolls) recently kind of making me more often think of India, as an idea to be destination for the next Excursion Study in 2010. 

Well as the head of External Division for Association of I.R. Students of Parahyangan Catholic University for 2009-2010, I need to think and decide with my members (which I haven't fixed them yet) any destination for Excursion Study as one of the main program of External Division. 

But WHY INDIA??? By the time I am writing it, the External Division 2008-2009 are on the way to Turkey for Excursion Study this year-except me, who do not go this year due to the money reason. I would love to pick any country that seems unique and any destination that people would less likely to visit for a holiday-unlike European countries where people seem to easily visit there for even no specific reason. India is still in Asia too,this would make the flight fare a bit more affordable. India also has several Catholic Universities,that we can compare with the ones in Indonesia. As the second largest populated country after China, India sure has got its own typical culture in social aspect, I feel curious about its culture and its distinctive type of people (we can easily distinguish the Indian people from other right?!) The ethnic and classic building also available there,in India: the modern futuristic buildings and the classic ones seem to gather together there,especially in Delhi and of course, in Agra there lays one of the seven wonders in the world : Taj Mahal. 

The good news is that my Dad has approved my plan for India in 2010! I talked to him at dinner and I asked his opinion between India and Egypt, but he supported me more on India. (Oh God,thanks for giving me such understanding parents! I hope You do support me on this plan too.) Well at least, he has approved me to go abroad (again!!! Yess!-considering the fact that this year of 2009, I do not notice myself just yet to go abroad) next year with our own money for Excursion Study. Let's see then if India is still be the main candidate for destination of Excursion Study in 2010, oh I need like FIXED MEMBERS already for External Division as soon as possible,so I could have people to discuss with.

I need particularly patience, trust and money..and love?

It is 2.22pm, in the gloomy Monday,of May 2009.

I am sitting in front of my MacBook,just being alone in my lovely blue room,with the high-volume Britney Spears' songs. Tired after attending a diplomacy practice held by UNPAD in Gedung Merdeka with Nayana, I feel like want to rest my head on my pillow, but somehow I feel deprived. 

I wonder what it is that I miss,it's not the usual me,I can enjoy my me-time and this time I feel like totally alone... Most of people I know,they have gone to their original cities and I am left here,still in Bandung. First,because I need to manage some stuff with External division, and some so-called-sudden occasion (like today! HAHA). Second, I think I need to figure out what I am going to do in June... whether it is I am going to my hometown to improve my driving skill,taking up a German course, or taking up a TOEFL class. 

Actually, what do I really need now??
PATIENCE! Oh yeah! I can't wait to have the permanent members of my External team, I still need to figure out 2 more people again. But it will be next week I will have this certainty, I hope this 2008 student would be one of my team members though. 
TRUST! I need to gain trust from some 2007 members just to make sure that my decision to choose them is right. 
MONEY! Hell yeah! I have been so wasted this month..HAHAHAHA! 
I bought many stuff this month: 
  • two pairs of SALE crocs
  • a gorgeous white bag @ BTC
  • a cute yellow blouse @ BTC
  • a GOGIRL magazine (because there was an article about my smart friend,Raisa,and there was enclosed a pic of me and her!)
  • second-hand clothes @ Gede Bage: a white blazer and a shirt.
LOVE?I do not know,I am surrounded by loving friends...I think that's so cool though sometimes I gotta admit that I want someone I can call my own and the worse part is I miss to feel those kinds of butterflies in my stomach whenever I see someone, something I rarely find myself to happen. The two previous posts about the two different boys that I kinda liked, but now I wonder whether it was just a fling or just my imagination...

Those Beautiful Eyes Smiled..

Those beautiful eyes ...

so real,
... as if they smiled =)

How could not I realize that those beautiful eyes were there..
Was it because the hair took over the whole face scheme? 
Oh, such a refreshment for meeting those beautiful eyes
particularly after having such creepy sleepless night because of exams.

Can I meet those beautiful eyes more often in the future?
Or is it just me who overreact? 
Ahh! Here it comes again... uncertainty,
such my loyal companion when it comes to Mars creatures.
Should I carry on and hope,
or should I just let it go,as the wind blows...? 

I just want to see those smiling beautiful eyes, again.

79? I am not satisfied. I want an A!

Just hours ago,Diandra and Andit told me that the scores for Global Modernity and Nation-Sates subject has came out, that our beloved Dutch teacher,Roy Voragen, has sent us email containing each of our scores. I was so hurried to see the email, and TA DA...2007330013 (which is my student number) enlisted to get 79 for final score! 

I do not know whether I should be happy for I have increasing my score compared to the score before mid-semester, or I should be upset because it is SEVENTY NINE,which is hello... so-damn-almost A! Why on earth didn't he just give me an A?! 
I guess I have improved my performance on this subject:
  1. I never skipped any classes
  2. I always did my homework, but I once submitted it late because I just forgot to hand it to the lecturer, but in this case I meant I ALWAYS TRIED TO MAKE IT ON TIME
  3. I participated actively during the class
  4. I did well on my presentation, that was when I made this "revolutionary way" in presenting my essay by using this media of large paper where all the key words of my essay written, and it turned out after that, the others got inspired and use the overhead projection (which is better and more efficient that what I did! Haha!) 
  5. I tried to come on time for this class. Ok then I need to admit, I once in a while made it to class on straight at 16.30, which Roy thought we should have been at class before 16.30.
Feeling I deserve more than 79 (OH GOSH, why is it just so hard to get additional 1 point for making it 80?), I sent my lecturer an email, saying: 

Hi Roy! 
First I'd like to say thank you for you have done such quick process in managing our UAS and scores. Frankly said, I am not satisfied with the score I got, even though I think I made such progress compared to what I did before UTS. OR can you suggest me what should I improve for the sake of my self-actualization? So I can learn from it and do better for next classes. Thanks.

and some minutes after, here an email from him, replying mine: 

Hi Devi,
I agree that you made good progress, but it started just a little late to justify an 'A' (to compare: last year 79 was the highest end score). It is good to be unsatisfied with the grade I gave you, but I can only suggest you to keep up the hard work, i.e. read more, so you learn from other authors' writing styles and ways of making an elaborate argument (you have to learn to elaborate, do not make a shortcut to a conclusion, but spell out all assumptions and pros and contras without using informal language, e.g. 'stuff').

"HAHAHA ok then! I got it. " I said, after done reading it. 
Well at least I've tried to tell him what bothered me in mind and I am happy that he got it all explained.

Deviana, the best damn thing


In the middle of "don't-know-what-to-do" time, I am making this blog.. It is not the first time I have a blog,in fact I once made one in 2006 but oh well that was such a past and I lost it ... 

Well actually I should have been studying for tomorrow's final exam on Middle East and North Africa subject,but I just do not have this spirit within first to study, or is it because there was no any classes for that subject for two months (since the teacher had got to go to Europe for master-degree stuff) or is it just me who is being lazy? 

Anyway I am encouraged by my lecturer, Roy Voragen, and my friends Ria Deniska, Fajar Ajie Setiawan who have already owned blogs, you guys inspire me though to write more on blogs, and hell yeah I do think that we all should convey our desire in writing than just Facebook-ing. 

Deviana, the best damn thing.
