Dewa Athena and Paman Gober 2017

Dewa Athena and Paman Gober 2017

            Dewa Athena is an anunual event in SMA Negeri 3 Bandung, it was held almost every year. It’s a sport event where the tenth and eleventh graders can participate in many kinds of sport competition like basketball match, soccer, dodge ball, badminton, relay race, tug of war, volley ball, and others.
            This event was held for 5 days. Two days each for the tenth and eleventh graders’s competition and one day for the finals. For this year, it was held on 23rd to 25th of March, 1st and 8th April 2017. Since I am a tenth grader, I will only tell you guys the Dewa Athena for the tenth graders.
            For us, it was held on 25th March, 1st and 8th April 2017 and it’s located on our school field, Lapangan Bali. The event start at 7 o’clock in the morning and it’s start with an opening ceremony. After the ceremony, each class was given a schedule and a liaison officer (LO), a person who helps us with our schedule and communicate with the committee. Our first match is the relay race against acceleration class. Because of a miss communication between us and the LO, we are almost eliminated but luckily, they gave us another chance and we compete in the relay race which we lost.
            The next match is the soccer match. For the soccer,badminton and dodgeball branch, each class have to send two groups, one boy team and one girl team. I will tell you about the girl team first. For the girls, first we played soccer againts class X-Science-3. Most of the girls in my class are so good at makeup and feminime things but are bad at sports so we ended up losing in this match. It’s also went the same for dodge ball where we up against X-Science-1. All of the girls are either avoiding the ball or tried to catch the ball but failed. We lost in both soccer and dodge ball but in badminton, we’re up for a comeback. Our players, Desi and Qinthari shocked us because they played well. We didn’t expected that they can beat X-Science-6 and X-Science-8 quite easily. With their victory, for the first time, the girls group went to semifinals. On the semifinal, we’re up againts acceleration and it was an intense match. Their score are so close making us, the supporter felt tense. But in the end, we lost about two points from them. That’s the end for the girls team.
            Next, is the boys. For boys, they played basketball,soccer,badminton and dodgeball. The first match is the badminton one where Haykal and Muhtadi played for us. On the first match, they’re up againts X-Social where they won the match but the second match againts X-Science-5, we lost because Haekal who replace Muhtadi who’s sick got injured before the match so he can’t played very well. Then, the soccer match. First, we’re up againts X-Science-5 and in this match we can beat them quite easily since Rafli score around four goals for us so we won. Then, we compete againts X-Social where our goalkeeper was hurt by one of X-Social’s team member. It created a scene for a while where our classmates run up to him and ask if he’s alright while the player who hurt him was replaced since he done something which he shouldn’t done. In the end, we lost againts them but it’s alright. Next up is dodgeball which I can’t believe that the boys can play so well and bring us to the final game againts X-Science-6. Well, me and my friends are technically didn’t not expected the boys will win againts X-Science-6 since the boys came from X-Science-6 are a bit to atheletic and a bit of stronger. The results are just like i expected to be, we lost but it doesn’t matter, we won the second place. It also went well in the basketball match. Where our class got into semifinal. In the semifinal, we’re up againts X-Science-2 where we ended up losing the match because X-Science-2 are too good on this sport.
            For the boys and girls group, beside the relay race, we have tug of war, volley ball, and gobak sodor. Gobak sodor is an Indonesian traditional games where they are two teams, one who guarded and one who attacked. For tug of war, volleyball and gobak sodor, we lost the game but we enjoyed and have fun playing that games together.
             There’s also another annual event in SMAN 3 Bandung which related to sports. Paman Gober is an event where students and teacher go cycling together around Bandung. This event was held on the same day as the final for Dewa Athena which is on 8th April 2017. In this event, students can choose either to bring their own bike or rent the ones the school provides.
            It was an amazing experience for a tenth grader like me. I hope next year both Dewa Athena and Paman Gober will be better and more fun that this year.

Learning from Nature

Learning from Nature

            Nature is the physical world and everything in it such as plants, animals, land, water, ocean, stars and things that can’t be made by human. Nature is God’s greatest boon to mankind. The land where we built our home, the air that keep us alive, the water and sunlight that help plants to grow it is all nature and that’s why nature become God’s greatest gift to us.
            In this modern era, human’s attitude towards nature are giving more effect to our nature. There’s a good attitude and a bad one. There are people who cares for nature, they take care of the plants, reduce using things that will harm nature like cars, plastic bag, spray, etc. But of course when there’s a good one there’ll be also the bad one. Beside those who cares, there are people who neglected nature or even destroy. They took benefits from destroying our nature like killed animals so they can sell the furs or cut the trees so they can make papers and sell them.
            Well, of course when someone do bad things to nature, not only will that person who feel the effect but most of mankind would also feel the effect. For example, global warming is nature destruction because of mankind’s lifestyle and attitude towards nature. What’s the effect from global warming? Well first, with global warming that keep on increasing each day, our earth will keep on getting hotter and hotter. The second effect is that maybe one day, all of the ice in North and South pole will melt and covers the land with water. If that really happen, can we survive?
            That horrible tragedy are still in the future and we can still reduce the effect by taking care our nature. How can we take care of our nature? It’s easy, first you can start by throwing trash in its place then start growing some plants to reduce CO2 in our atmosphere. Then to reduce global warming, we can start by using public transportation or using a bike. By using a bike, you can reduce global warming and keep your body healthy.

            There’s a lot of benefits and services that we get from nature even if we don’t realize it. Like for example, nature’s services. We may don’t realize it but we won’t survive without nature service and what kind of service that nature gave us? Nature give us oxygen from plants for free, we don’t have to pay for the oxygen that keep us alive. Then, water that come from the rain that provides us waters to fulfill our daily needs. Then, the sunshine that took an important role in our life as our eternal light and also help plants to grow.
            Beside services, nature also gave us a lot of benefits. Like nature can release worry and stress, they can also simulate our imagination, and also they can be our source of inspiration especially for artist or musician.
            But, what can we really learn from nature? Well, after knowing nature’s services, benefits, how to take care of nature, we can finally learn that the best thing are truly free like nature. We don’t need to pay to plants for providing us oxygen, or to rain and sunshine that gave us water and light, or to the beautiful nature that gave us inspiration. All we need to do is be grateful for the nature that god gift to us and paying them by taking care of them not destroying them. Be grateful and started your first action to give our earth and the next generation a better future that can grow smile in everyone's face.

“High Hopes”

Broken bottles in the hotel lobby
Seems to me like I'm just scared of never feeling it again
I know it's crazy to believe in silly things
But it's not that easy

I remember it now, it takes me back to when it all first started
But I've only got myself to blame for it, and I accept it now
It's time to let it go, go out and start again
But it's not that easy

But I've got high hopes, it takes me back to when we started
High hopes, when you let it go, go out and start again
High hopes, when it all comes to an end
But the world keeps spinning around

And in my dreams, I meet the ghosts of all the people who have come and gone
Memories, they seem to show up so quick but they leave you far too soon
Naïve I was just staring at the barrel of a gun
And I do believe that, yeah

But I've got high hopes, it takes me back to when we started
High hopes, when you let it go, go out and start again
High hopes, oh, when it all comes to an end
Now the world keeps spinning
Yeah, the world keeps spinning around

High hopes, it takes me back to when we started
High hopes, when you let it go, go out and start again
High hopes, oh,
And the world keeps spinning
Ooh, yeah, this world keeps spinning

How this world keeps spinning around

High hopes is one of Kodaline’s song from the “In a Perfect World” album and it was released on March,15th 2013.

It’s probably an old song it have a lot of meaning for me. First time i heard this song was a long time ago and i thought it have a deep meaning for me back then. Once i met a boy. We were closed and we talked for a quite some time. It maybe be short but weirdly, there is a few memorable memory that i can still remember vaguely.
So one day, that boy just left without saying anything. He just stopped talking to me, stop sending message to me, and whenever wherever i pass by, he would just act like he didn’t know me. At first it’s hurt but as the time flies, i get used to it.

Kodaline’s song, High Hopes really fits into my situation and has a deep meaning for me back then where i hoped that i can go back to where we started because there’s a memory that still lingers on my mind that make me hoped that maybe we can start all over again, as friends.
