i've been so hesitate of assignments and also gratifies activities in university. Particularly in faculty, FIB (Faculty of Humane Sciences). Therefore i'm so sorry my blog has been neglected in so long due to my studies.
University thingy always be so exciting for me; these new places, new insane friends, awesome teachers, a bunch of new events and absolutely new stories.
The differences are quite noticeable since i go to this university in Depok (Universitas Indonesia). One thing is about the scenery; i can watch a mountain and a lot of trees on my way to go there. This scenery i couldn't get when i live in Jakarta and on my way to went to Kindergarten until High School. All i got were those boring buildings, mall, irritating pollution, and too much vehicles.
I got a lot of fun in university, but i got a whole lot more assignment. Therefore i'm jaded oftentimes. So, on week-end i take a train to go to Bogor Botanical Garden. This place is chosen because first it's not far away from our campus, i can watch a plenty of robust trees over there, feel the fresh air, listen to melody from birds, and serenity.
"Monologue Inggit Ganarsih"
which was held in FIB UI. I'm interested in history so I didn't get bored for about 2 hours watching monologue by Happy Salma who roled as Inggit Ganarsih. i knew something new about this amazing woman and life lesson from Inggit as well; "serve with sincerity". In the end of monologue, I gave her a standing applause, so did others.
it's a pity that there's no her name in my history books and my teachers in schools never mention her name while they were explaining about history of Indonesia.
she's a woman who gave her whole life for someone who's gonna be the greatest man and the founding father of Indonesia, Soekarno. Inggit was the 2nd wife of Soekarno. she had been loving him in the bad and happy conditions, accompanying him everywhere, working hard (being a tailor, sold cigarettes, powder) to get money which for Soekarno's education finance and to buy their daily cost. Moreover, when Soekarno was in jail in Sukamiskin, Inggit walked 30 KM to bring him food. but ... tragically, in Bengkulu Soekarno fell in love with another girl, Fatmawati. so he asked Inggit a permission to marry that girl but Inggit refused it and told him that she won't him did a polygamy, it means she wanted him a divorce.
