Today should be my jobless day but I chose to go to MIPA Bersatu Socialization to represent the head of publication and documentation division, Senior Rana.
Ah by the way, I joined this committee just because I just want to run away from medic division. Some of medic people in departments student orientations (mabim jurusan) should be delegated to medic division in MIPA Bersatu. Luckily I was invited by Senior Rana to join publication and documentation division because she knew me from Student Executive Board in Transformation Cabinet.
During holidays, I was happy to join this committee because I didn’t have a lot of jobs. Just posting posters and being a good senior to new students by answering their questions in social medias. LOL I didn’t remember myself as a complicated new student. Just c’est la vie, aka life goes on. Some of new students I helped were so complicated by asking a lot of simple questions that even I already knew the answers before they asked -_- Please, read before ask, dudes.
Last Saturday, MIPA Bersatu held a socialization which I came over to there. But unfortunately, it wasn’t finished. And today was the socialization part 2. HA! That’s a lot of just-for-your-information stories before we started to tell my stories today.
Today I woke up in the morning lazily. I took a bath without any rituals as usual because I thought I was gonna be late. But then, I went to the venue and waited for a looooong time because the audiences of this socialization hasn’t came yet. I even finished a webcomic titled Hwa Ja by Hong Jac-Ga.
Finally it started. Everything went smoothly, it wasn’t making a lot of emotions. At 12 AM, the socialization was paused. I ate grilled chicken with other committees. After that, it continued again until 3 PM.
Mila was also came to watch this socialization even she was late. Then I went to Ramen Bajuri with her. Before that I had to wait for a looooongg time because she talked a lot with Senior Mella and ignored me 🙁
In Ramen Bajuri, I talked with her a lot since she was just coming back yesterday from her hometown. Then we went to bookshop in Gerbang Lama, Padjadjaran University. She bought three books there. Actually I thought the books seller was a nice person, just before he hurt my heart by his lame jokes. Fortunately I could control myself and just forget what he said.
Ah finally reaching my room. I slept. I was tired. In the night I woke up again and tried to continue my Last Cake web project but suddenly when I saw this, I came to cry a river and shouted crazily. CONGRATULATIONS MY DEAR BIG BRO!! Or should I say the one that got away? OMG can’t wait to go meet him later in graduation suit. Damn, what an emotional day.
Finally I came back to Jatinangor. Before today, I struggled a lot with my father because he didn’t want me to came back fast. Yeah me too. But there will be jobs here so I didn’t want to miss them.
Yesterday, I packed all my things. Then I slept faster than usual. LOL I had to admit I felt like American while in Jakarta. Slept in the morning, woke in the night. I hoped in Jatinangor I was tired enough to be sleepy at night.
And today I went to Jatinangor along with my father. He helped me brought my things to my temporary home. We went at 10 AM and arrived at about 3 PM. Well, such an exhausting day so after I cleaned my room I slept for a while.
At night I woke up and did an useless activity: WATCHING SLEEPING BEAUTY. Damn, why this story was so stupid -_- Fuck fairy tales who always told about handsome prince and beautiful princess. Then I slept again.
Ah yes, at first I was disappointed to be here today because the Character Building Season meeting wasn’t tomorrow. But luckily, there would be another meeting in MIPA Bersatu tomorrow so I didn’t have to be in my room uselessly.
Today it’s not usual for me to wake up early in the morning because yeah I’m a nocturnal human LOL. But why don’t we try something new in holiday? That’s why I chose to go to this event.
It’s new for me because it’s the first time I went to University of Indonesia and the first time used commuter line train. A day before today, I went to station to survey how I got the ticket and how I got to University of Indonesia. I also had already asked my friend Septia which was a student in University of Indonesia about this commuter line train. I even asked if she wanted to accompany me in the train. But unfortunately she couldn’t come with me. It’s okay, I went by myself.
Soooo… this morning I went to the station with my father then I bought the ticket by myself. The ticket was the e-card like I showed above. It’s only for a day trip so I should turn it back before I came back home in the same station I bought. Then I went inside the station. At first I wasn’t sure which train I should take so I missed about 2-3 trains to make sure myself. Finally I took the train and arrived safely in University of Indonesia. In front of the station’s exit gate I met Senior Ojan which also joined this event. By the way, he was a Bandung citizen so a day before today he stayed over in his relation’s house just because he really wanted to go to this event -_-
I went to the venue along with him. Well, I didn’t know where’s the venue and he said he knew the venue. Ah it’s pretty awkward to walk with him. I didn’t know why, maybe because we haven’t met for a long time? Finally we reached the venue but we were too early. The event hadn’t been ready yet so we talked something to chill the atmosphere(?) I happened to see Senior Atep who was also joining this event and made him to sit closer with us. Then Anbiya and Ibnu also came to sit with us. Yes, they’re the people from Padjadjaran University’s Informatics Engineering. Actually there should be Shofi too but she couldn’t go suddenly because she had to go to MTQ competition in Malang.
The event started. It’s a seminar about Google Assistant, TensorFlow, and Kotlin. The speakers of this seminar were three experts which you could see on the poster at the very first line of this post. I thought the first two topics were exciting but no for the last topic. The last topic was about Kotlin which was a programming language that I didn’t understand so I couldn’t be focused to the presentation.
In the end of the event, there was a doorprize game. Anbiya won the Google t-shirt from this game. After that we took a group photo with the speakers and went out from the venue. I got snacks and HokBen from this event. LOL this seminar was free and I got free foods. Such a good event. I ate the foods with those four guys from Padjadjaran University’s Informatics Engineering. Then we went back home. Ibnu, which lived not far from University of Indonesia, went back home by his motorcycle. Others including me were going home by using commuter line train. It was more crowded inside the train compared with the morning train. After arriving in my station, I went out of the train and went back home by public car and walked.
Yes, that’s all for today’s activities. I literally had already tried two new things today. By the way I lied at the first paragraph :p I chose to go to this event not because I wanted to try something new but because I wanted the certificate of this event LOL.
Hello!!! I’m sorry I was too late to tell about this. I added new category for my upcoming posts, it’s Lomba/Proyek or in English it’s Competitions/Projects. But although the name is project doesn’t mean my end-term projects included. The competitions and projects I meant here are about developing myself, check my latest post about it here. The background is also not always about informatics as I typed for the title of this post, but can be non-academics such as sports, arts, etc. Duh, what am I explaining now. Yeah just it. LOL. Have a nice holiday guys!
It’s been a long time since I never asked Ibnu to pick me up to campus again. But today I went to campus with him because there would be CBS Socialization Part 1! CBS is derived from Character Building Season, a student orientation program in Himatif for new students. Ah yes, I haven’t told about this before. Every year there will be two big programs by Himatif, there are CBS and IFest or Informatics Festival. The two youngest generations should take at least a job between them, but if there is someone want both, it’s still welcomed. And if there is someone don’t want both, it’s still okay too but he/she will be loss of new committee experience.
This year I chose to join CBS committee. Actually I even didn’t want both but as I said above, I would be loss of new committee experience. That’s why I thought one was more than enough. I was so sorry to Senior Ojan that I rejected his offer to join IFest committee. I just didn’t want to make myself dying. I had already joined six committees including CBS for the sake of God! And if I count my four projects too then I will have 10 duties to complete. I hope everything goes well. Please God help me 🙁
Back to the topic, all CBS committees had to gather today because we would present a socialization for Himatif big family. That’s why I went to campus today with Ibnu because he was also CBS committee, the academic division to be exact. And I was one of medic division in CBS. Actually I didn’t get this division as I wanted. I wanted to be serious by choosing publication and documentation division or event division when registered myself for this committee but Senior Arie, the head of medic division needed girls the most so I surrendered myself to be medic division. In fact, there wasn’t any female registrant in medic division so Senior Arie requested Hilya and me to be in medic division.
So today I could say our socialization was a big success after practicing in three meetings before. But this wasn’t over yet, there would be the second part of CBS socialization. Actually after CBS socialization, there was Himatif Iftar (buka bersama) but I didn’t join because I wanted to meet up with Shofi so when it was over I directly went to our meeting place.
I meant in Jatinangor. I’m not that crazy that I never go to church in my life. I’m a Christian and I know it. I have already hated myself you know, I was always being busy for these two semesters and forgot to meet my God in His home. Luckily, this moment is finally coming.
Err… I had to admit that actually I wanted to try to go to the church because Senior Yoan persuaded me to accompany her to the church in Bandung. When I heard Bandung, I was so excited that I might meet my lost love there and that’s how I accepted her persuasion.
By the way, let me tell at first why I never went to church while in Jatinangor. I was very disappointed when I first came to Padjadjaran University because there was only one church in Jatinangor and it was too far from my temporary home. At that time I also didn’t have any friends to accompany me. Beside that, I had a lot of business with my campus from Himatif to Mathematics and Natural Sciences Faculty’s Student Executive Board. But again, I emphasize that I only never go to church while in Jatinangor. When I went back to my house in Jakarta last semester, I came to church as well.
Back to the topic. Today Senior Yoan and I chose to go to HKBP Riau in Bandung. I’m sorry I’m too lazy to translate HKBP in English, but it’s a church of Batak people. I knew I wasn’t Batak but I didn’t care. I just wanted to try something new. At that time I also just knew that there were free buses to get the church. Whoa, I wished I knew it from a long time ago.
When I arrived in front of the church, Senior Yoan took me to eat first because the devotion hadn’t started yet. She told me better to eat now than being hungry until we got back to Jatinangor. I ate fried rice and Senior Yoan just ate bread with red velvet jam. Actually I wasn’t shocked with the price since I experienced ate something in Bandung while Himatif Graduation Day. But this was really crazy you know, I could be more full in Jatinangor with this price. Thank God I lived in Jatinangor, not this scary Bandung.
After that we got inside the church and followed the devotion till the end. Senior Yoan told me better to take the short way to get the bus rather than the usual way to get away except we wanted to stand up in the bus. And that’s how I experienced the first time going to church while living in Jatinangor. Next week I want to try GII Dago and the next two week I want to go to Jatinangor’s only one church. GII Dago is also one of churches in Bandung which have free buses to get there from Jatinangor. Dear God I hope I will be diligently going to church every Sunday after this.
Hey ya finally I have a proper time to write about all of my projects that I joined. These projects aren’t for academic purposes but only for developing myself. Let’s start from the first project.
One day, Eko asked us if there was anyone who wanted to join a web designing project with Senior Asep and Senior Ical. I thought there wasn’t, so I asked Eko if I still could join and he gave my contact to Senior Ical. The next day, Shofi called me to gather up for the first meeting with them. At that time, I just knew that Shofi also joined this project and I became more excited with this project.
At the first sprint we succeed the to-do tasks. By the way, sprint was a to-do task list and we should finish all in the list in a week. Then we met up again for the second time to discuss the second sprint. That’s how all problems started. Shofi and I couldn’t finish the second sprint because of our own business. Then because of it, we got a warning from the seniors to be more serious again with this project. Yeah, we promised them to get focus again. I wish in this holiday season I can do the belated to-do tasks in the second sprint. I don’t want make the seniors got disappointed again with me and Shofi.
The second project is HDA or Himatif Database Apps. It is an app contained with Himatif big family’s biodata. I joined this project with Ibnu, Islam, Bening, and Hilya. The app was already finished but it still should have to be developed more and that’s all our task as the trainees. Until now we had ever met up once with the tutors. I guess in the next semester we will meet often. OMG I hope I can divide my time for everything I will do next semester.
The third project is the most exciting project but also the hardest one. It is Mr. Erick Paulus’ project which is our lecturer in Data Structures subject. I don’t know what to call but this project is named Document Analysis. At first we helped to input survey answers from a company’s staffs into text files. Ah yes, the survey contained essays and multiple choice questions. The multiple choice questions were scanned with a special scanner so we didn’t have to input like the essays. This project was paused before the final exams with all of the surveys were already inputted. It will be continued after we are coming back to Jatinangor for the new semester. On the top I said this is exciting because we will get paid of what we helped and the hardest one because I should install Matlab in my laptop. I heard this software was taking big memory and the use of this software was hard enough. I’m afraid my laptop can’t be strong when using this software. I hope everything goes well. Until now I haven’t downloaded it yet because it’s too big! I wanted to download it later with WiFi in my temporary home LOL.
The last project is 3D Game Project. The team name is really absurd, it’s Wahaha Project. I joined this project with Bening, Hilya, Fauzi, Senior Fazlur, and the leader Senior Dwiki. This project don’t have any progress even a meeting. The leader just only told us to try Unity Software first before we met up. And again, I haven’t downloaded it yet too because I’m waiting for WiFi in my temporary home haha.
That’s all my ongoing projects. I knew I shouldn’t take a lot of projects like this. Like Senior Asep said, a person can’t split his/her focus into many as maximal as he/she can. I think I will leave Mr. Erick’s project and Wahaha project and focus on Last Cake and HDA team. But it’s still a “will” so let’s see if I can take all of them or surrender some of them.
Happy birthday Mathematics and Natural Sciences Faculty big family! Tonight was the celebration of the birthday even though the actual birth date was on May 29th. The celebration or we said it “Dies Natalis” was also a closing ceremony of three big events in Mathematics and Natural Sciences Faculty. There were OSEAN by Talent and Interest Department, MIPA Science Cup by Academic Department, and Kuantum by Strategic Studies Department. The “Dies Natalis” event itself was held by Internal Relation Department. Hahaha, can you feel my worries? I always experienced something crazy with them. Remember when Internal Relation Department kidnapped me to prepare the Launching event? And yes, it’s coming again for Dies, I thought I had ever mentioned it in this post.
For this event I only helped to make a photobooth backdrop but before that I had to quarrel with Afifah because she made me confused with the requests. I thought she wanted me to make banner but suddenly it changed to photobooth backdrop. Luckily I could handle it fast so the backdrop could be printed on time even though it was just designed a night before the event.
And then tonight was already over. At first I didn’t interest to come to the Dies event because I didn’t have someone or something to see. I even went to Griya Market with Mila but yeah finally we thought to pay a visit for a while to Dies. We were arrived on 10 PM so of course we were the last guests in this event LOL. In the event I saw there were OSEAN, MIPA Science Cup, and Kuantum winners announcements. In the end of the event, all presidents of Mathematics and Natural Sciences Faculty organizations were singing the Hymn of Scholar (I wasn’t sure with the exact name). I also took some photos with Himatif in front of the photobooth backdrop that I made last night. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the photos so I couldn’t show it here. After that, Mila and I went back home.
