2017 was my last conference that I attended outside Indonesia. It was held in Kuala Lumpur Malaysia. So talking about that last afternoon during paper discussion was interesting. I said to my research partner (which is a lecturer) that I am interested participating on conference this year. His reply was positive but he couldn’t make sure that the conference will be delegated to me as his research assistant.
I don’t think deeply about that because the important thing of me is how I can publish several papers this year. The most thing is how I can apply PhD program. Those are my plans that make my life alive. Yes, let’s back to work again several minutes before having nice sleeping.
FYI, tomorrow my favourite football team, Manchester United will have big match with Paris Saint Germain (PSG). Hope me can watch it live in the second half. Thank you !
Almost my YouTube time today is about watching how cute Naomi Osaka delivering speech or comments in front of audience and media. She is a first Asian who become the best at tennis world. Next week she will be number one at WTA. A brown skin girl who still 21 years old is being popular after being winner at US Open beating Serena Williams in the final. Yesterday she won Australia Open against Kvitova, 2nd rank of WTA.
Anyway, Osaka for me is inspiring. I like her not because of her playing but her attitude like mostly Japanese who so humble. Some media said that Osaka couldn’t smile, she is serious woman. A YouTube video revealed that Osaka’s boyfriend is her racket and ball. This is so funny I think. Whatever media said, Osaka is the best on tennis, one and only for Asia athlete.
Enough for Osaka. Back to the title. I am now at Terminal Coffee, a coffee shop not so far from my home. I plan to work finishing a fucking paper that have been started since 2017. I don’t like it’s title but I must finish this because job. My coffee is ready, so is my laptop. Let’s start working. Enjoy this evening guys.
This morning was last meeting for students who joined Internship program at PPID ITB. There were 6 of 10 members who attended the meeting. As coordinator of the program, I represented leaders of the campus who couldn’t come to the meeting. We gave certificates to each of them then we took photos with them before every one of us leaving the place. For me, this was my first time managing students to do specific jobs representating campus formally. I got a lot of lessons : job desk, control, timeline, etc. But the most precious thing is how I can understand people. See you in other opportunity guys !
I have just finished a draft that I will give to my partner (he is lecturer) to be corrected. Last evening, I looked for a place that is comfortable for working place. Finally I got Kopi Anjis where I worked there till 11.30 pm. Because my work was not finished yet, I went to Bober. This time I am still in here. I tried to finish the draft all night until fajr time. I have limited experience to write a paper using english, so it must be spending more time than an experienced researcher.
I order fried rice to be my breakfast. I planned to go office earlier then take a rest temporary before working. Have a good friday guys !
As I wrote yesterday evening, this morning I will update the progress of my works. Unfortunatelly they haven’t finish yet, one of my work is still nothing to do. Even I do much more to take relax temporarely by taking sleep or watching movie, all doesn’t impact anymore to my spirit to finish the works. All because in the weekend, I still think to my works. I always imagine to solve them. This is terrible. The result of my works not significant. Its much better for me to spend weekend for weekend, to refresh my mind by hanging out without thinking anything about works. Stop thinking seriously, enjoy the life. You can continue your works on the next weekday.
I must make my life normal. Spending time all for works is not normal that make us stress. If we go to the coffee shop in the weekend, make sure that there is no laptop in our bag. Enjoy the coffee and its people. You can also go to your mates to strengthen your friendship. Or like your long time weekend, you spend most of the time for sport. All those are good for you because you are human. Remember all those things are run on the weekend, so they doesn’t waste your time. Weekday is time for you to achieve your career dream, but weekend is for your humanity. There is several times remaining before meeting to your boss, prepare your paper !
There are several hours remaining for the deadline of two papers. First paper is about technology commercialization that I work with a MoT Lab lecturer and second one is about lecturers engagement that I work with a CK4BC lecturer. Because I am not used to make vlog, so I update my activity using this blog. Maybe next time I will. For making vlog, I am inspired to Deon, a robot maker in film Chappie. When his humanic-robot would be ready to be installed, he took a video talking about progress.
One paper that I must finish tomorrow hasn’t ready yet. I haven’t read anything yet. I plan to finish the first one untill 10 pm then move to another work. I do the first one in Eiger Coffee Shop at Cihampelas street. Maybe tomorrow morning, I will update again about my work in this blog. Happy work Guys !
This morning was the time to report progress of yesterday meeting. There were 16 reputable papers must be highlighted to be inserted to two chapters : background and literature review. To sort main points of each paper, we must read carefully then interpretate and puzzle it into systematic paragraph. This process actually needs our imagination. It is not easy thing. This evening will be my time to follow up what I have already earned last morning. Let’s work !
