The Right Person Is..??


 If true love is so important to everyone,
then why is that we have so many issues on finding it?
I know, we fear rejection, want attention,
crave affection, and dream of perfection..
But in the end, Life is what happens,
when you’re so busy making other plans…

True love is not easy, they’re hard work. It’s about compromise, growing together, etc, etc. But if it’s the right person, then it’s easy. Looking at that girl and knowing she’s all you really want out of life, that should be the easiest thing in the world, right?
I know the odds are, the love of my life isn’t gonna magically walk through that door. I’m the only one with the power to change my life. I’m the only one who can attract a woman to me. I cannot stand by idly waiting for a woman to come along and sweep me off my feet. It’s not her job to do so.
But, how do we know about “the right person”? Because, as far as I concerned, It’s not always easy to see someone’s true colors. Sometimes, we must look beneath the feminine spell to find that fragile ego. Ignore the sparkle of the jewel, bring the truth out of the shadows, to see the real beauty of her smile..
Besides that, true love doesn’t happen right away, it’s an ever-growing process. It’s like Engineering, It has phase for “developing”. There is Issued for Internal Review, Issued for Approval, Issued for Design, and Issued for Construction..
The Real Truths..
You see, we shouldn’t have to fight for a spot in someone’s life. If someone wants you in their life, they’ll make room for you. On the other hand, if someone wants to be a part of your life, they’ll also make an effort to be in it. It’s just stupid to insist yourself to someone who continuously overlooks your worth, because if they know your worth, they will create a space for you.
But, somehow, I don’t know what a privilege it is to grow old with someone, who doesn’t drive me “insane”, or doesn’t humiliate me beyond repair. But, the thing is, it’s about two people being true to each other, even when they are separated in distance. I mean, remaining faithful is never an option, but a priority. Loyalty is everything.

Best Quotes “How I Met Your Mother”

Man, when I have kids,
and I’ll tell them how I met their mother,
I’m gonna tell them everything, the whole damn story..

Wow, this is my new post finally. I am still amazed at how far my personal page have been developed, which began with such humble expectations. To be honest, I’m writing here during my spare  alone time. Looking at back about posts that I’ve written, the more I realized how much my self has changed.

Usually, the tradition is “list 100 things about you”, but I have different opinion. I just want to write the quotes from my favorite Serial TV, where I grow up around them since three years ago. Those quotes are so related to me, and little bit also describe “things about me”. And, this quote from “How I Met Your Mother”, marks my 100th post. If you watched this Serial TV, you’ll know which scene from these quotes below.

About Love of My Life
Look, I know that odds are, the love of my life isn’t gonna magically walk through that door.. But, this seems as nice a spot as any to just, you know, sit and wait for a while, preparing myself at the same time..

It just felt nice actually. Where we can sit together just the two of us, and have a good casual conversation, with no intention of hidden “agenda”.. (~Ted to Robin)

Okay, I’m gonna say something out loud that I’ve been doing a pretty good job of not saying out loud lately. I’ve seen two people’s in love and really connected, and what I know what they had, I want that.. I do… I keep waiting for it to happen, and waiting for it to happen, and…I guess I’m just, um… I’m tired of waiting.. And that is all I’m going to say on that subject.. (~Ted)

I know that you’re tired of waiting, and you may have to wait a little while more, but she’s on her way, Ted. And she’s getting here as fast as she can.. (~Stella advise Ted)
I took a long walk that night. I thought about how opening myself up to another person usually means opening myself up to going a little crazy. I thought about how much easier it was just to be alone… (~Robin)
When it comes to love, the best relationships are the ones that just come naturally. I think that’s how it’s supposed to be. Have natural fun, and easy, and simple or uncomplicated. Because at some level, with the right person it has just to be easy. Looking at that girl and knowing she’s all you really want out of life, that should be the easiest thing in the world… (~Ted)

The Elite Group

I wrote this as reflection of our memories together. Memories of friendship, happiness, and silliness as well. I just want to express how happy I am to be your friend in our lovely group.

There’s something I realized during this time with you, Guys. The conversation is more fun when we find someone who has the same desire to learn english. We have a partner who we share enjoyable things with and also makes us feel comfortable even when we make mistakes. It isn’t like you have an opponent who is stuck in a race with you for being greedy to come first, It’s more like you have partners who accompany you, struggling together with a lot of laughter, happiness, and also understanding.

These memories start with my university senior , Tresnadi Prabowo, our group conversation teacher. He was graduated from ITB, He took Mechanical Engineering as his major. He is our Leader in our group. The first time I met him when I joined with RECC english Club. In my eyes, he isn’t just a good friend who tries to teach us the way we must speak English correctly.he became truly teacher that always tries to make us understand how English works more than I can express. Indeed because He got 7 IELTS Score! haha..I love the way he teaches us in the English Ritual Meeting. Thank you Tres, for making us really love learning English, especially for me in our english ritual. And most important of all, thank you for making us understand how it works. Even though I barely know it yet now, I hope it is a good beginning for the future. Now he pursues his dream to continue his study. He want to take his master degree in overseas.

Yuddy, Our Big boss and also our mascot because he has the funniest facial expressions and also comments which make us laugh for no reason ("you know what my life is so damn mess!" :P). Yuddy is often teased by us because of this. I can’t stop laughing when I remember the moment when yuddy was singing the US national anthem.hahahaha. We know that he has strong passion to become "american citizen". Yuddy is our first initiator to build this group. He is the one who started our weird english conversation. He studied at Widyatama University. Yuddy used to walk together with bonny. Wherever you find bonny you can find yuddy as well. Same like bonny, He studied at Widyatama University. 

Gunawan aka "Edward Cullen" is the coolest man in our group. He was a graduate student from mechanical Engineering. He graduated from ITB university. He is the one who started to make some jokes about anything particularly about love expression. Even though he does’t talk english too much, He can give us important words when He is speaking. But sometimes, He says unnecessary things that make us laugh. After that, we always call him Edward Cullen because his appearance is very cool brohh haha..Lately we are so sad when we heard that he will work in Singapore. But I hope that he will find his dreams in his work office. 

Then my memories float to nada, The first and only girl in our group. She hasn't graduated yet from Unisba, she is majoring in physicology. She is kind and also "Galau" however She is very active woman in all English Club activities. She used to involve actively in English Club Event (RECC and The Leds). Nada is more like “Reminder” for us. She usually arranges our occasion get togethers. When she calls us, It usually works, but sometimes it doesn’t. We spend time with just chatting sometimes.

Bonny is the one who always give strong attention to his footbal club (Valencia FC). Now He is studying in Widyatama University. I hope she will be a good Banker someday. In our Group I honestly think that he is the one who has good english speaking. He ever joined marketing debate competition, he participated it together with yuddy.

Doso (Encep Amir). he is now studying in Padjajaran University. He is taking environtmental studies program in his collage. he loves japanese/korean culture so much then that's why he involved in the Cosplay community. Now he is trying to get an oppotunity as dual degree scholarship grantee in Twente university.

There are some of my memories of our time together. I can’t expound all of them, I’ve just written a few here. Even so, there so many good times we had in our conversation time. Even though we come from different campus and have so many different backgrounds, we complete each other. From now on, I want to improve my English even more, so I can see the world and make other friendships like ours. This is the most enjoyable English conversation group I have ever had in my life. Thank you friends, for our precious time together.
