Fiction Competition di Gomu-gomu no Matsuri IV: Neko Matsuri

Beberapa waktu lalu, saya diminta oleh panitia Gomu-gomu no Matsuri IV: Neko Matsuri untuk jadi juri di Fiction Competition mereka. Gomu-gomu no Matsuri sendiri adalah event tahunannya ekstrakurikuler Ni Nihon-go no Kurabu di SMA Negeri 2 Bandung.

Kompetisinya sederhana: buatlah sebuah cerpen dengan tema matsuri (festival) atau neko (kucing). Dengan persyaratan yang sederhana, akhirnya ada enam orang yang menyelesaikan naskahnya dari delapan orang yang mendaftarkan diri. Penjuriannya sendiri enjoyable bagi saya dan merupakan pengalaman pertama saya menjadi juri di kompetisi terbuka 🙂

Definition of friend

This is me, and I like being who I am. I know it is important to build a large network, but only in certain conditions.

Most people only see what I chose them to see from me. I have only few friends in my life, but they do are best friend. This is me, and I like being who I am. I know it is important to build a large network, but only in certain conditions.

For me, it’s not about how wide, but how deep the connection is.

Teach something you know best

Teach something you know best.

So many of questions on Quora about Indonesia that runs on the same vein of “how should Indonesia develop” tend to gravitate towards an answer that proclaims: “Fix our education system!”.

So let’s fix it.

Who’s to say we learn our most valuable skills in school? Teach someone a skill you know best. I’d be happy to teach someone how to use the internet for research effectively and how to assess reliability of data and having the discernment to sniff for false information. It’s probably an ordinary skill to some of you but it would be useful for someone out there. It is very useful for Indonesia as the level of data quality released by survey centers and some public bodies are really quite apalling.

What would you teach?
