Imagine the boys introducing their alter egos of Chaos Planet:

Dave Smith, the arrogant, witty womanizer

Kevin Simmons, the cool and sophisticated gentleman

Phil Farquarson, the hyper, slightly obnoxious fuckboy

And Chris Wool, the youngest and most talkative of them all

I love that I’ve lost followers since I’ve put up an ID page. If you have something against mentally ill people identifying with characters as a grounding method and coping mechanism than please get off my blog.

“Are you sure you’re okay?”

You nod, though the shiver that wracks your shoulders and the thin layer of fabric that covers them says otherwise. Dan raises a skeptical eyebrow.

You shove your hands into your pocket, shrugging. It’s a chilly night out, with the autumn wind stirring up dead and crunchy leaves while bare branches wave ominously at you. You shiver again, this time not just from the biting wind.

“I can handle a little cold,” you reply flippantly. You set a quicker pace, hoping to reach your house before you catch a cold or, God forbid, your teeth start chattering and Dan finds out the fact that you’re actually freezing your arse off.

“Uh huh.”

Before you can reply, you feel a large hand grip your elbow, forcing you to stop. You look back at Dan to find your boyfriend slowly unwinding his warm, yellow scarf from his neck.

“You really don’t have to–” You’re cut off when Dan throws one end of the scarf around your neck, the soft wool ticking your bare skin and wrapping around your mouth. You squeak in surprise before glaring at Dan. Dan responds with a smirk, his thumb moving to tuck the scarf snuggly under your chin.

“There, better?” Dan muses, his voice full of amusement at your stubbornness.

You grumble, but your can’t help it when the corners of your mouth turn upward ever so slightly. You pout. “My face is still cold.”

Dan huffs put a laugh, before stooping down and planting a soft kiss on one cheek, then the other, then your nose.

“Better?” he asks when he pulls back, his grey eyes glinting. You’ll never tire of the way those blue gems of his change hues with the weather.

You tap your lips, smirking ever so slightly. “Missed a spot.”

Dan’s eyes crinkle up with mirth, before he grabs hold of the ends of the scarf and tugs you towards him. His lips meet yours readily, warm and impossibly soft. You feel a shock and a gate of warmth open, flooding throughout your entire body. You smile into the kiss; regardless of the months you’ve been officially dating, his touch still drives you mad.

Dan’s the first to pull away, but not before nuzzling your red-tinged nose. He takes your hand, rubbing it with his thumb, before intertwining it securely in his hand.

“C'mon, let’s get you home before that adorable nose of yours falls off.”

You laugh as you let Dan tug you along. You close your eyes and tuck your nose into his scarf. Breathing deeply, you let the scent of fabric softener and Dan’s familiar musk engulf your nose.

It might be a while before you give his scarf back.

tahukah kamu,
banyak murid sekolah di Indonesia yang gagal menyerap materi pelajaran bukan karena mereka tidak mampu, melainkan karena mereka belum tuntas menguasai materi dasar yang menjadi prasyarat belajar.

inilah mengapa sering kita temukan murid-murid yang merasa dirinya bodoh–bahkan dicap bodoh. padahal sejatinya, mereka hanya kehilangan kepercayaan diri. akibatnya, semangat belajar mereka pun rendah, menyontek menjadi biasa, dan semangat mengajar guru-guru pun ikut turun.

banyak kemudian sekolah yang berprinsip–hanya mau menerima murid terbaik saja. sekolah tergesa-gesa melabeli murid dengan “pintar” atau “bodoh”. padahal, sekolah berbeda dengan perguruan tinggi. seharusnya, seleksi masuk sekolah tidak didasarkan pada passing grade, tetapi pada kesepahaman antara murid (dan orang tuanya) dengan sekolah, tentang pendidikan yang diselenggarakan sekolah.

kami IDS, mendorong sekolah-sekolah untuk menerima murid apa adanya. tentang murid yang tidak merasa percaya diri adalah masalah serius yang harus kita selesaikan bersama, sampai ke akarnya.

KEJAR (kumpulan software belajar) Matrikulasi, adalah aplikasi online yang membantu sekolah menumbuhkan rasa percaya diri murid dalam belajar. seperti bermain game, para murid akan diajak untuk mengerjakan soal-soal dasar dengan tingkat kesulitan yang bertahap. murid harus menguasai sebuah materi sampai boleh mengerjakan level selanjutnya. dengan demikian, rasa percaya diri murid akan muncul. mereka merasa mampu, merasa pintar. proses belajar mengajar pun menjadi efektif dan efisien.

aplikasi ini tersedia dalam tiga mata, yaitu operasi bilangan riil (matematika), kata baku (bahasa indonesia), dan vocabulary (bahasa inggris). ketiganya merupakan dasar-dasar untuk mata pelajaran yang di-UN-kan.

dengan KEJAR Matrikulasi, guru-guru dapat menentukan standar kompetensi masing-masing. juga, melihat rekam perkembangan belajar murid. karena berbasis online, ya, aplikasi ini dapat dinikmati dari mana saja, termasuk dengan telepon genggam!

sekolah yang baik menerima murid apa adanya. kalau sekolah hanya mau menerima murid yang “pintar” dari sananya, siapa yang bisa mengentaskan bangsa kita dari lingkaran setan kemiskinan dan kebodohan?
