hello buddy!

I just wanna show you my new dorm room in a house. So, I have this room rented per year. So, here is my small comfortable room!


Hello buddy!

It’s me Egritha. Don’t worry because I am writing this in my free time. But as you know now I am a college student, so I seldom steal some time for writing!
Umm, what things should I write here? Aha! I think it is a good idea if I share you about what happened here in university.
Actually, Public Administration,is not my choice. But His choice, I believe it. If He always gives me any chances since I was an Elementary student. I have been a good student with good achivement too (Praise God). I have good parents, both my mom and my dad, they are wise and intelectual. Maybe, some people think I am arrogant for saying this. But, have a great score or get a nice degree is not a pride for me, because in my family, it is a must.
The first time, I completed my subjects that must be learned in this semester, I was quite shocked. Because all of the lessons are theories. My dad even asked me until I arrived home, “there is a basic math in it, right?.” “No Dad, No math at all.” I answered.

Last 28-30 August was an orientation time for new collegers, so I was quite busy preparing some stuff that needed. During the orientation time, I was quite shocked (for the second time) about this faculty. Because the people talk too much. I thought that speaking was only needed here. It was not a problem for me because I am a debater and I have been doing debate since I was in high school.  But, I just hoped that in this faculty, I would find new interesting things. Speaking, talking. Talking, speaking. There are one or two students who run through this plot. I did not know if they spoke from their heart or they just got obsession by the popularity. The most dominate students are students from Communication subject and Politics. (Boy and Girl ; A & R). I just gave the initial name, haha.
Well, in orientation time (for 3 days), we were given a kind of task “Newspaper Resume.” So, the seniors gave us Kompas newspaper  (it is one of the biggest newspaper in Indonesia) every day. And we had to make a resume about an article of each newspaper they gave. In these 3 days, Orientation started at 6 am and ended at 7 pm. We went in the early morning and we backed in the late evening. It was really tired indeed. Besides that, we had to find some stuff that were needed for the next day according to the theme. For example, in 1st day, the theme was white and black, so we wore white T-shirt and black pants. In the 2nd day, it was about Independence, so we dressed something related to Red and White (Indonesia’s flag) and the last day, the theme was Activist (I hate this theme).
Back to the task of resuming newspaper, our seniors said that they would announced the winners of this resume activity. I thought, “Ah, so it is a competition then!!!” I was arisen with million zeal in me. “This is the chance for me. This is it!” I thought. “I must do this greatly, I must show them who I am.”

And then after I arrived home (read: dorm room), I slept...
Yes, I went to my bed and slept. -_-
Although, from college I had been waking up with fire of spirit in my soul but in fact, I was too tired and I’d prefer to give my body some rest. Goodbye championship?

Oh, not really. In reality, I am a hard working person. But, I do everything maximum if the condition bent me to do it. I think everyone has power more than they ever knew, if they are out of their comfort zone. For example, I can review 7 books in a week if I REALLY have a will to do it. How can I have a will? WILL comes from self motivation and hardworking person. WILL also come when the condition compel you to do it.
Then, I planned to do this resume in the 2nd day of orientation because in the 3rd day, it will be collected by seniors. So after I backed to my small room at 7 pm, I remembered I had to get some stuff according to our theme “Activist.” So, my friend (she’s my neighbourhood in rent house) and I went outside to some store and got the stuff. Taking bath, having dinner, and looking for this mess stuff  really wasted my time. I reached my room about 10.45 pm. And I was feeling tired and thinking about taking rest for an hour 15 mins. So, I would got up in 12 pm and did a resume. Again, in reality I slept until 1 am... I still remember, I was very tired that time and all my body was not ok, I mean I needed  a rest!

So, at 1 am, I woke up and I started nervous but I slowly opened the newspaper and read and read and read again. Then, I took my pen and paper, I begun to write but still I haven’t got the point. So, I backed and forwarded the newspaper. It was really noisy night in dorm housebecause of me. Lol. Then, I went to my desk and yep, I was writing. I was writing the idea I got.

Then, in the next morning, we did the activities like usual, we also handed in our resume paper to seniors. But, in this 3rd day, it’s kinda special...Because this faculty invited orphans for having lunch together. Some said they are educated children by our seniors, some said they are orphans. I really did not care. And they made this orientation more alive.
In the end of this last orientation, one of the senior (MC) announced on the stage about the winner of Resume Newspaper. She said that there were just 2 winners. So, I thought it would be hard for me. Because, like I told you before, there were 2 dominant students from Communication and Politics who used to talked in front of the people. Then, she announced, “I start from the 2nd winner... And the winner is... Ardo!!! Ardo from Communication, we invite you to come to the stage, please...” And the people were giving applause. Ah, see? “A” from Communication is the 2nd winner, then the 1st must be “R” I told you above. Inside my heart, I critized this is not fair. I resumed the newspaper from 1 am until 4 am, I did it very hard. But, I did not blame myself, I did not blame anyone. Because I thought they (the juries) were smart end wise enough, the winners must be the real winners. 

And then, she again continued her speaking, “And... the 1st winner... WHO IS THE OWNER OF THIS CHAMPIONSHIP??? Girl or boy? Boy or girl?” she shouted like a mad one (sorry! Hehe)
Most of students and seniors replied, “BOY!!!” (like mad ones too! Lol)
She spoke, “And the 1st champion of Resume Newspaper is from... Public Administration!!!... EGRITHA TAMPUBOLON! We welcome you to come in front of the stage, dear.”

I my self was surprised for this. I continously looked on my badge name, my name is Egritha, isn’t it? I was really haapy for this, even I smiled looked like a stupid person. Lol. I walked to the stage and stood there with the 2nd winner, Ardo from Communication.
The MC spoke, “Then, we invite the governor of Social and political Sciences Faculty to assign the rewards. Please give applause!!”
And the assigment of rewards (The rewards are Jacket of “KOMPAS” and sertificate of Orientation. Why didn’t they give us money? -_-) went so well, Ardo and I got any applause. “And, ladies and gentlemen, Egritha and Ardo are repsentative  Social and Political Sciences for giving a gift to the orphans.” The MC spoke again.
And then, we both gave the gift to children there and they took our photos.
After that, I was given a chance for saying some words.
Wow, that was my first time speaking in front of students of Social and Political Sciences. That was my first time speaking in my new college. That was my first time speaking for my 1st achievement of being a colleger. That was my first chance that God gave to engrave my feat. Thanks, Jesus!

I spoke in front of the people about “sense of crisis” related to comfort zone. Because in 2 days, I denied to do the task but when the crisis time came, in 4 hours, I did very well. And Ardo spoke about his hard working. He’s very fluent in speaking to public. Many friends congrated us.
The next day, I went to campus for giving subjects paper called KRS. At the door, I met a girl then she said, “you’re the champion? Aren’t you?” I replied, “Sorry, what champion?” She replied “Resume. Resume. You are the person, aren’t you?” I said, “I don’t really understand!” She yelled, “Just say yes!!!”

Then, my friends asked me to come with them and get some snack. Then one of friends from Sociology picked me up from campus by her motorbike. I didn’t know her and she didn’t know me. I just knew her name and so did she. We passed the Street called “Pintu 1” and we met with her friends there, she stopped her motor and accosted them, “hey! Where are you going?” They talked for awhile then one of her friends shouted suddenly, “This is the 1st winner, isn’t she?” And her other friends said, “Yes, yes. That’s her!” “Ah, wrong person, girls.” I said. But, they kept talking about me and I was speecless, then I spoke, “Yes, that’s me, haha. Thanks!”

And for somedays, the same things always happened, like people recognized me while I didn’t know them, they called me, “Champion!”
“Hey, champion!” or “You are the winner, eh?” or “The number one” and so on and so on.

I tried to deny them but they already made me speechless.
You know buddy??
It’s like I am popular here. Haha.
But, I want to show them off my ability by good works. And it’s what God wants from me.

I informed my family about this and they said, “Keep it up! We are proud of you!”
Thank you very much to my Lord, I pray and hope You show me the way.
Pray for me, buddy so I can do my best here! ^^
