The Empire State Building

The Empire State building is one of my favourite iconic american architecture. This 102 story high building in Manhattan, New York was considered to be the highest in the world for nearly 40 years. and right now is the 35th tallest in the world and the 4th tallest in the U.S.

The bulding first opened coincided with The Great Depression in the U.S. resulted in more than half of the office space was unrented, and it's poor location which is far than strategic is not helpful. because of this New Yorkers deride the building as the 'Empty State Building'.

In the 86th floor, the building offers a breathtaking 360 degree observation deck that shows an impressive view to the city. so impressive in fact, that it's estimated the observation deck alone has attracted around 110 million tourists since it's first opened for public.

My Plans on December

For December, I haven't got any holiday plans. However, I would like to have one since it is going to be my last holiday before I take the big test that could determine where I go to college. I wanted to spend time with my friends at holidays, because most of the time I get to meet them at school and we don't have time to have fun there. just a simple trip to anywhere far from the city like going to a beach, or going on a hike to a mountain will be nice. I don't wish to have a luxury trip or anything because I won't have the money anyway, for me it's all about the time and the moment we could have as the last holiday before the test.

Feeling Grateful

This morning, I was up late for school. I showered like lightning and I didn't have time for breakfast. I can't afford to be late because it's going to be my third time late this semester and my parents can be furious at me. But, on the way to school I was very hungry. fortunately there is this store near my house that sells food everyday, so I decided to buy 2 pieces of Lontong to bring to school for breakfast ,and it was relatively cheap.

I'm very grateful to the owner of the store, the store saved me dozens of time before and I really can't thank her enough. The store itself usually doesn't open until 9 or 10 am but the store lady happily waited for me in case I was late. I'm really thankful to have you and your store near my house.

Dewa Athena

Dewa Athena is a sports event in my school where classes go head to head in sports like Futsal, relay, dodgeball basketball, volley and so on, and it's only held once a year.

the event is competition based so it's very competitive, my class XI IPS were not that good at sports but we find this event to be entertaining. we didn't win anything but we don't really care about the rewards we just want to have fun. 

my favourite sports activity in this event is futsal, unfortunately my class got kicked out by XI IPA 1 in the first round, it was a very tense round since they've won in the penalty shoot out. but I personally had a blast.

Learn From Nature

            We are surrounded by nature, from plants to animals to bacteria and fungus and so on are all part of nature. We are a part of nature, we make our living by nature. It’s why we need to cherish it, preserve it, and never destroy it. People today always wondered why do we like to ruin nature so much, we take advantage from it all the time but very rarely we give appreciation from it.
            Speaking about taking advantages from nature, we do all sorts of things from nature and often even change the genetic structure from nature itself by selective breeding of plants and animals. For example, bigger cows that produce more milk and meat will breed more than the skinny ones, and we also make fruits such as watermelons to have more volume but less seeds in them by selective breeding and changing their genes to better ones.
            Nature also gave us protection from the elements such as the wind, water, heat, and cold. Without trees, humans can never survive the earth. Trees we usually plant them to make either wood or grow them for their fruits, but we often forgot that they also what makes our air fresher, turning carbon dioxide to oxygen, habitat for a lot of animals and so on. It’s why the air on the jungle are usually fresher compared to the air from the city.
            Protect nature, and it will protect us. If we cut down all the trees on earth, then we will realize that we can’t breathe money. If we catch all the fish on the ocean then we will realize we can’t eat money. nature has an unique way of punishing us, often subtle but very deadly. It’s why we can’t ignore it. Almost all the good things on earth came from nature but it’s like we can never see that. Now that global warming is becoming a more serious issue, there is nothing we could really do other than depending on nature. Ice on the arctic and antartica will melt. Cities and countries such as Jakarta and the netherlands can potentially drown just because of it.
            Pollution right now is the number one enemy for humans, it’s because of us that pollution exist in the first place. We ruined environments and habitats for animals and now they are suffering too, the air in the city of Beijing is now so polluted, you really can’t get a clear sky view again there. Children with respiratory problems are the main victims here, the air there is so bad that it is recommended that they move to other cities with fresher air. Water pollution can be very dangerous as well, with only really 1-3 % of all water on earth is fresh water and only a fraction of all the fresh water in the world that is good enough for us to consume. We really need to conserve that as well.

            Problems like those are quite dangerous but the solution is actually quite simple. plant more trees, don’t cut trees for buildings, don’t throw your trash to the river, lake, or ocean, use cars and motorcycles that are environmentally friendly, recycle, reuse, reduce things, etc. all those things can make the planet a better place for us, our children, and nature itself. We need to create a condition where we and nature can be mutually beneficial to each other. That is where I think we can learn from nature. The key word here is to protect each other. And make the world a better place.
