Today was very busy for me. A cup of black coffee welcomed my morning to start working with my paper. In the same time I also worked for another job by contacting many people related to maintain the work progress. So my mind was forced to work harder.
My eyes were so tired seeing the screen of mobile phone and also laptop. So was my brain. I planned to take asleep early after dinner. But there was a call from someone I miss. Thank you for the time.
This day was full of activities. Starting from 10 am, I must met with a lecturer in SBM discussing about second paper then one hour later I presentated one year plan for the place I work for in front my boss. Then at 1 pm I evaluated my teammate (2 groups)’s project management.
Then nearly 3 pm I had a lunch (also breakfast) at Etitu with my job partner. We talked to much any random conversations. Then before going home I checked another magangers job for more than half hour.
Now, I am in a coffee shop like usual to do my weekday works (aka. research). Tomorrow morning I will attend a research method class. So this night I must prepare it. Enjoy the day guys !
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 !
