Because, there's a season for everything.

disclaimer : it's gonna be a very long post.

I've been lived under the quote "For everything, there's a season" and also Ecclesiastes 3:11, so far. I didn't remember what day exactly I finally found my favorite verse. Like everybody else always talks about, "My Gold Verse or they said Ayat Emas" everyday in my teenage life, I always wondered how everybody got it so quickly? And now I realized that, it was not. It was totally not that easy, it's just I don't know the story behind their Gold Verse.

It has been my dream since I was in junior high school, where I'd already understand the beauty of musical show & Disney stories. I knew about the amazing Broadway show from Glee, and from the very moment I really wanna see once. My older sis, the one who first let me know about how great and beautiful Disney On Ice is, then brought me to this Magical Broadway show - Beauty & The Beast (my favorite Disney Story ever.) Here, I didn't mean to boast anything about our life, definitely not, because we didn't raised from a rich family background. It's all because of my sissies works very hard till they could bought this for the three of us, but, for the biggest part is, it actually God that brought us here. I'm so sorry for being such a loser. Our parents think that we were already capable enough for something like this, so yeah.

I would say that IT WAS INCREDIBLE! Beauty & The Beast comes to live! With beautiful voices here and there, sing and dance, amazing properties, amazing little orchestra, how come they could make it REAL. It gives me a tingling feeling, that "OH FINALLY! I knew what it feels like watching a broadway show". But it's prohibited to take a camera inside the venue. So, I can't give you any images how amazing the show is, here. Believe me, you should watch it once in your lifetime.


It's the story about my fangirl's life :) - Every Disney stories opening, right?
From the very moment I idolized Bigbang, that's when I have a desire to watch their concert. It has been the number one goal for every fangirls. I didn't watch their first concert, which is ALIVE world tour, because I didn't save enough money for it and my mom didn't allow me to join the crowds. Poor me. But, later my mom found out that my best church friend-let us call her Eunice. We've become friend since we were in Sunday School-, like KPop too. So, at that very special day, which is I remember exactly February, 13th 2015 my dear friend suddenly asked me to go with her to Taeyang's Rise World Tour , which held on February, 14th 2015, and she said, it's free. There's something that I can't tell you guys here, why she could get the tickets for free. But trust me, she got it with a RESPECTFUL way.

Honestly, I already knew that Taeyang will come to Jakarta. But, because I'm on my way saving more money for Bigbang, so I don't even dare to dream to watch him. I was like "You could save more for Bigbang. You could see him with BIGBANG :)". At that time, I was struggling, I feel like it's not good for taking a really high price seat for free that easy (I surely do feel it), so I asked her to asked her older sister instead of me. Then, she said "Yeah, that's my plan too, but sadly she was in charge for her church's program." She knew I love Bigbang. Finally, I said okay I'll go with you! I didn't say that I didn't love free tickets, who doesn't love it, where you could watch your idol? I bet no one. And it turned out to be our BEST VALENTINE's DAY EVER!

Maybe it's because I never attend a concert, even once, I said it was amazing, I could hear his voice directly to my ears, I could see him dance and moves in the stage while singing. I could feel the emotions. I could scream out loud without bothering my family because I'm among the other fans, I could hear my favorites songs, I was so happy that day, that finally my dream came true, I could attend a concert! And God gave me Taeyang's concert :'D There's no enough 'thankyou' words to express my gratitude towards HIM. I also really really happy and thankful because God sent Eunice & her dad for this :) I spent a night at her home, and we went to church the next morning together. Also, my Mom that finally letting me go for this, fighting through her anxiousness that we will got trampled by those amazing crowds. Now I remember, it's the day where I found my favorite verse, that God fulfilled my prayer at a very right time.


Remember that I joined a photography club at my campus, Obscura?
And yes, there's something great about it, where God also fulfilled my prayer and dream. Watching TULUS for the first time. And it was ALSO FREE! I've already tried a couple ways to get into his performances at malls or other places, but it was always failed.

One day, my friend which is Andrew-thanks a lot Andrew!- offered a job for the 25 of us from Obscura to shot for Net TV's Birthday party. We were soon known to helped media peoples for it. So to make the long story short, I got a chance to shot celebrities which is you can see here and see TULUS PERFORMED! Aaaaah, so happy. Thanks a lot to my junior that with her kindness offered me a tele lens to shot TULUS, because I don't have any tele lens. I forgot to borrowed it from my friend, and I was ready and OK with that, to shot him with my kit lens, that suddenly she offered me her lens.

Thank You for all of these things that has been happened in a right time through right peoples around me.

He has made everything beautiful in its time.
-Ecc 3 : 11-

See this postthis post, and this post too, where God also fulfilled my prayers.

[UNILIFE] Semester 6 di UMN


Kali ini post buat semester 6. Di semester ini, cukup santai, tapi tugasnya makan waktu dan menguras pikiran sekali. Haahahha. Kayaknya kok gak ada yang enak yah? Tiap semester ada enak gak enak kok, ya namanya hidup yah. Gak ada semuanya bahagia, toh. Post ini mungkin akan ada banyak foto :D - plis jangan curi foto yah/apalagi plagiat terutama di branding dan project management. HEHEH. kalo makeup mah, gapapa.

Semester 6 itu belajarin :

1. Branding
-Branding kerjaannya adalah Re-branding. Disini kita sekelompok ber5 orang (dengan hanya cowok satu orang di kelompok gue, kasian dia, pusing dengan cewek-cewek), diminta untuk membuat rebranding dari tempat yang telah ditentukan pak Dosen. Diminta membuat Graphic Standard Manual, aplikasi desain di stationery, terus iklan/advertising nya di media cetak, billboard, sama transportasi. Kita harus bikin video TVCommercialnya juga. Harus cek lokasi, wawancara, dsb :)

2. Experimental Art
- Kelas ini namanya aja experiment yah, jadi tugas-tugasnya tuh unik-unik dan aneh-aneh. Hasilnya pun sangat beragam dari setiap mhsa/i nya. Seru sih, cuma karena kita gak nyeni murni banget, sedangkan tugasnya mostly mirip sama anak seni murni, jadinya kurang pol aja rasanya hasilnya. HEHEHE. Ada kita diminta buat kolase dari barang-barang sekitar, video gerak tubuh, dll.

salah satu karya experimental art. 

3. Academic Writing
- Belajar bikin proposal buat skripsi/tugas akhir. Menentukan topik untuk semester berikutnya which is semester sidang dan tugas akhir. Prok prok prok.

4. Makeup Effect (Elektif)
- Nah, ini si guru kesayangan lagi yang ngajar dari set & property semester lalu. Isinya? Membahagiakan sekali :) Setiap kali makeup makeup makeup. Mulai dari makeup fantasi, horor, cantik, sampe yang bikin efek2 bohong2an gitu.

gue yang makeupin lohhhh :D Lucu kan!

My friend :) - bukan gue yang makeupin.

5. Project Management
- Namanya juga project management, kita diajarin cari klien, bikin projek dan memanage bagaimana projek itu sampai selesai :)

6. Interactive Media Design
- Bikin game flash. Diajarin bikin coding (sedikit kok-dan biasanya kalo dosennya baik, dikasi semua kodenya). Jadi, disini di asah banget yah buat yang suka ilustrasi, terus idenya, terus KESABARANNYA dalam membuat efek-efek dan segala macem. Mostly using Adobe Flash Player, Photoshop and Illustrator. Kelompok :D

ini game offline nya. Ada yang versi flash juga. Tapi rempong masukinnya.

7. Sustainable Design
 - Teori bagaimana sebuah desain itu bisa lebih tahan lama dipakai, multifungsi, dan eco friendly. Kalo gue, tugasnya disuruh buat paper melulu. Kalo kelas lain, ada yang diminta buat jurnal dari bahan-bahan bekas.

8. Sociology in Art & Design 
- Teori juga. Sosiologi mempelejari tentang perilaku kehidupan manusia. Dan menurut gue, ini pelajaran agak kurang penting dimasukin di mata kuliah yah. Soalnya, gak ada sangkut-sangkutnya deh sama seni. Hmmmp. Bukan karena dosen atau apa yah, tapi menurut gue pribadi loh gak nyambung banget sama matkul buat anak DKV :( Tapi, mungkin ya karena desain kan harus bisa menyelesaikan masalah masyarakat. Mungkin itu maksud dari pelajaran ini. Hmm...

Akhirnya, gue udah mau masuk semester 7 nih. Semester sidang. Tugas Akhir (proyek), magang, dan sebagainya. Serem juga sih kalau dibayangin. Mana sekarang, gue belom magang karena gak ada yang mau manggil gue. Kenapa yah? Jadi, sekarang gue leha-leha di rumah, bikin portofolio, ngurusin online shop biar bisa dapet uang, nonton, dsb lah. Yaudah deh, nikmatin aja :)

[UNILIFE] Semester 5 di UMN

Hai :)

Udah lama banget gak post Unilife yah. Maaf, kelupaan gara-gara semster 5 hectic banget. Sekarang udah semester 6 nih. Gak terasa banget cepetnya. Pas ngejalanin, rasanya berat banget, sekarang malah rasanya kok cepet banget yah. Terimakasih Tuhan bisa lewatin dengan cukup baik. Hehehe.

Semester 5 yah? Gak usah takut sih, cuma katanya ini semster paling sulit dan titik jenuhnya anak-anak kreatif. (Oh yah, dari dulu lupa, kalo ini gue nulisnya dari sisi anak DG / sedikit-sedikit kreatif deh).

Semester 5 itu pelajarin :

1. Psikologi
- Belajar mostly psikologi di Seni (tapi menurut gue gak ada nyeni-nyeninya) cuma diajarin dan dikasi liat contoh-contoh seni doang. Apa gue yg gak demen yah? Jadi rada-rada skip -___-

2. Motion Graphic
- Seru sih, kalo seneng pasti suka banget. Ini keren pelajarannya gue juga seneng, tapi cape (karena gue gak tahan di komputer lama) banyak banget yang bisa di explore (ada MoGraph 2 kok elektif). Cuma karena gurunya agak kurang enak, jadinya yaaaa... lanjutin sendiri yah.

3. Set & property (elektif)
- Gurunya super baik! Mueheheh. Kerjaannya kalo tahun ini, kita bikin pameran gitu, buat-buat barang dari tema yang sudah ditentukan. Di UASnya, nanti pamerin deh karyanya. Kelompok kok.

4. Comic
- Errhrh, bete! Gue gak suka gambar, malah ini jadi wajib lagi! Disini, kita diajarin jenis-jenis komik, panel, jenis-jenis ceritanya, terus ada banyak banget model cara ngegambar, shadow, highlight, dll. Dan disuruh bikin komik sendiri juga di kelas ini. Kelompok kok :)

5. Semiotic
- Teori semiotik. Agak bosan dan sungguh memusingkan kepala ya manteman :) Tapi, kalo dapet gurunya asik, ya asik aja.

6. TV Commercial
- Disuru bikin iklan TV dengan tema yang berbeda-beda. Kita anak DG apa anak cinem deh yah, Pa, Bu... Helooo...  Kenapa kita gak disuruh bikin copywritingnya kek, atau idenya saja, atau yaaa bolehlah hanya sekedar apa namanya yah? Picture board itu loh, buat contoh nanti syutingnya gimana. Sori lupa.

7. Research Methodology
- Ini berguna banget sih, walaupun ngebetein banget. Kita disini kayak simulasi Skripsi/Tugas Akhir. Jadi, disuru cari topik, terus diajarin buat kuisioner & analisisnya, dan bikin bab 1-3 :) Tapi, tugasnya men, gak nahan.

8. Introduction to Economy & Design
- Intinya disuru bikin bisnis kayak technopreneurship. (titik) Mulai dari ide, business plan, ngitung-ngitung -____-

9. Hak Kekayaan Intelektual
- Ini pelajarin tentang Hak Cipta Karya (wis itu doang) 

Ya, memang Semester ini lumayan lelah dan jenuh sekali yah wankawan. Cuma karena guru dan teman-teman yang seru jadi seru aja. Dibawa asik aja. Kalo bosen ngerjain tugas di rumah, ya bareng-bareng lah sama temen ke cafe kek, mall, sambil makan, sambil ketawa-ketawa. Curhat dosen rese, sangat lumayan membantu refreshing loh ;)


*nah ini bener banget, dulu punya quotes sama temen "Mendingan gue yang keujanan, daripada nih tugas yang keujanan dan buat lagi!!!"


What A Productive Day

Hi, there!

It's been a productive day for me. I got no internship, and now I'm at home doing nothing. Browsing through internet, The Sims 3, Social Medias, Movies, Dramas, Sleep late and woke up late.
About my final project proposal? Chapter 1 done. Hopefully it's really done. Chapter 2 next, I need to find a bunch of books as a based for my theories. And I can't find even one proper library here. I'm so desperate. 

Okay, so today I've been renewing my old portfolio and making one-hopefully nice-layout as a portfolio to my next application in the next semester. It got me probably 3-4 hours to made it. I hope I'll got a really nice work area soon.

And, I found a website which is could compress your huge PDF files! Since I'm a graphic designer and all my project mostly done in big memories, then I have to pile 'em up to one PDF as final portfolio, it came up to a really huge memories PDF. Also, the nice part, it was designed in flat vector, coral red colour (which is my favorite one), and responsive. Nice Nice Nice! Actually my dear friend, told me about it. THANKS Josephine! You saved my life :)

Here it is --> Magic Compressor

Below are the benefits using (now I sound like promoting them)

You can use it as a:

since my laptop can't merge PDFs files, so this is really helping me out through! So, guys if you have some problems either your microsoft files, jpgs, pdfs, just remember to type this to your browser :)

Enough for now :) Thankyou for having me!
