Spasi (Akhirnya!)

Jujur aja, sebelum ini ga pernah bahagia banget dapet hari libur mingguan. Jum’at ini terasa seperti ‘spasi’ dari teks yang terlalu berdesak-desakan acak yang ditulis secara cepat tanpa ampun, yang akhirnya buat saya bisa sedikit menghela nafas lega meski tahu ini cuma sesaat. (Saturday will come sooner, about 24 hours more to go!)

Padahal, kelas XII ini baru berlangsung 4 hari! Tapi sesaknya sudah luar biasa. Tiap guru yang masuk pasti mengingatkan soal medan perang selama tingkat akhir ini, mulai dari ngasih tugas praktek dan PR, ngingetin kartul lengkap dengan sidangnya (yang oh saya belum ngerjain lagi, malah lari ke tumblr dan curhat), lalu serentetan ujian tertulis maupun praktek jurusan dan kepesantrenan (UTS, UAS, UAP, UAMBN, UN, PLKJ+Sidang, THQ, Praktek Ibadah (Sholat wajib+sholat-sholat sunat), Ngurus jenazah (mulai dari mandiin sampai nguburin), Doa-doa, Hafidz Hadits, dll) lalu belum lagi ada segala persiapan ‘SBMPTN’ dan Portofolio/Ujian Keterampilan (berhubung saya pengen masuk FSRD-ITB) yang terus menghantui, because really, its The Real War guys. 

Dan, ditambah dengan berbagai kewajiban UG, yang meskipun ada di minggu-minggu akhir masa jabatan, tapi tetap menuntut totalitas. Juga ada kewajiban di kelas, ngajar, di rumah, dsb…

Teach me how to breath again, guys.

Ini baru permulaan. Perang memang sudah dimulai, tapi belum sampai ‘klimaks’. Dan jujur saja, pikiran saya kacau balau! Mana yang harus jadi prioritas? Terkadang, ketika mengerjakan prioritas utama (nyiapin SBMPTN misalnya) kewajiban lain selalu terbayang-bayang dan membuat saya ga tenang. Atau, ketika ngerjain prioritas utama itu ga total, soalnya kecapean (re: ketiduran) gara-gara urusan sekolah (yang mau ga mau datang di prioritas teratas).

Serius, manajemen diri di tingkat ini bener-bener harus mateng! ((dan saya belum bisa melakukannya secara konsisten. buat saya yang tahun-tahun sebelumnya hidup dengan sistem let it flow, nge-manage diri secara serius dan disiplin butuh perjuangan keras. Jatuh bangun pokoknya!))

Jadi, inti dari postingan ini adalah; yup! CURHAT hahahaha.

Dan semoga jadi gambaran juga buat adik-adik kelas, karena tingkat ini semua kemampuan kita dikuras habis, terutama mental! Jadi semoga postingan ini, sekurang-kurangnya, bisa ngasih gambaran apa aja yang harus kalian hadapin di kelas XII nanti. Don’t ever waste your time like me, guys.


|| dan buat siapapun yang baca ini, tolong ingatkan saya tentang post ini ketika saya sedang berleha-leha ataupun ketika semangat sedang down. karena saya ga punya banyak waktu. serius, cuma 180 hari!!! ||

I used to work as a tech-assistant for a program at my library. I had to help senior citizens with computer problems and the like. One day, this smug old man comes in and sets a Mac down in front of me and proceeds to boast about how good Mac is and how up to date he is with technology. After finally figuring out his problem (connection issues), I asked him what internet type he was using (wired or WIFI.) He confidently told me "dial-up." I didn't even know what that was at the time. WTF dude?

pros & cons of community college?

Here are the pros and cons of attending community college:

PROS:

1. COST: You can finish your core and get an associate degree for the fraction of the cost of a university. The average tuition and fees for one year at a community college is about $2,500. At private schools, the average tuition and fees for one year is $30K. For in-state public schools, it’s almost $9K a year, and for out-of-state public schools, it’s $22K a year, according to College Board. The cost will take some of the pressure off while you experiment with different classes and industries. This will prevent you from sticking with a major you don’t like just because you already paid for the classes or because you can’t afford another semester.

2: PROFESSORS: A lot of people think professors aren’t as good at community college, but this Washington Post article discredits that idea. They found some classes are even more challenging because professors are motivated by their students, who often display more drive than those at four-year universities. Community college also often have smaller student to faculty ratios, which gives you more time with your professor.

3. SUCCESS: Here’s a list of super successful people who went to community college: Tom Hanks, Morgan Freeman, Clint Eastwood, Walt Disney, Calvin Klein, Supreme Court Justice Arthur Goldberg, astronauts James McDivitt, Eileen Collins and Fred Haise, and MasterCard founder Melvin Salveson.

CONS:

1. TRANSFERRING:Don’t take any additional classes than your core curriculum. Oftentimes advisers will sign you up for everything under the sun, which could waste your time, money, and possibly not transfer to your university.

2. CAMPUS LIFE: You will have to readjust to your new campus and friends. If you were really active in clubs, you will have to start over at the new campus. You also may not get that “big school” atmosphere if you go to a small community college, but I think you can get everything good from that environment in two years.

Hope this helps!
