This will be my last post for the subject of CTX. I am quite sad because, in the end, we are all going to go our own separate ways. When I decided to choose design as my target, my parents disagreed at first because they wanted me to study business and they considered me will change the another course in the end because I am not in patience for everything. I agreed with the way they said because when I do not have patience I will give up easily. However, I want to tell them I am becoming more patience than before without giving up. I didn’t give up in the end because I really enjoyed with a busy life. I felt happy every time I have done with my assignments.
People kept thinking our FID course is easy and those students who get A were not supposed to go to FID course because they considered the design is useless which could not help them to have a bright future and they should have the best choice for them to study except design. But, I wanted to tell them that everyone has their own choice, nobody can control them. If other people force you to choose others course which you don’t like it, do you feel happy? If it was me, I will not be happy for my entire life because I am not interested with others except design. I am so proud to be a FID student because I learned a lot of things, I had learned how to do a catapult, innovate kinetic mural (stickman), do printmaking, drawing, build a hornbill bird using PVC pipe, build a panda using metal wire, make a video and others. Everything is not easy but we did it! Although it is tiring and stressful sometimes we enjoyed it. We feel tired, when we have a lot of assignment which needs to spend a long time to do, there is no time for us to rest. We feel stressful when we have no clue on what we should do for next. This is how self-exploration obtained.
During the entire course, I am improving to be independent and confident. I experienced new things that I never experienced before. I learn a lot of new things about myself which I never had before.
I learned to be acceptance. Acceptable, when there is a lot of assignment which is tiring, exhausting, and stress that makes me feel want to give up for sometimes but I tried to accept it because no pain no gained. Without suffering, how we are going to survive in complicated society?
I learned to be patience. Patient with all things. I become more patient when I do my assignment. Thanks to my friends who always tell me to try to be patience when I do my assignment. Without patience, you cannot do work efficiently.
I learned to be more communicative. I communicate with my friends in English. During the first day, I am worried about myself because I can’t even speak a whole sentence and my grammar is very weak. I don’t even dare to talk with them because I am so embarrassed with my poor English. But, now, I am so happy because my English is improving which is better than before, I can communicate with my friends. I know my English still not good enough so I will keep learning English without giving up. I believe I can do it.
I learned to be appreciating. Thanks, all of my lecturers who share a lot of knowledge to me and helps me to understand what is right and wrong. Thanks to all of my friends always help me to improve my English and do correction of my grammar, I know that when all of you read my essay and help me correct the grammar, you guys get suffered for every second moment (LAUGHED) but all of you still willing to help me, trust me with sharing your mind, encourage me that I can do it well and dare to scold me even I know that is not right. I am really stubborn for sometimes… WELL, OKAY, EVERY SINGLE DAY. Thanks anyway.
I really learned a lot during the semester. I can’t write all that I learned during the semester because there is no enough time for me now, I still have to do my other assignments. The assignments are challenging, however, this is the only way how we grew up without depends on others. When life becomes difficult, this is how we change ourselves to be stronger.
