I can't Imagine Life Without "Mirror"

The mirror is one thing that can reflect light and reflects other objects when the objects in front of. However, can you imagine life without a mirror? indeed it sounds trivial, but perhaps enough has an influence on our lives.
Few know the history of the mirror, as I read on maduranews.comThe mirror is one thing that can reflect light and reflects other objects when the objects in front of. however, can you imagine life without a mirror? indeed it sounds trivial, but perhaps enough has an influence on our lives.
few know the history of the mirror, as I read on maduranews.com that mirrors have long been found around 3000SM, but at that time using a surface polished to a shiny bronze is then used as a mirror. While a mirror made of glass found by nationality German chemist, Justus von Vebig the 19th century. He gilding with mercury glass surface so as to produce the effect of reflection.
Without the mirror we can not see us either the face or the clothes we wear. Whether we have to look in the mirror at the reflection of water? or in the kitchen utensils made of aluminum? Hmm possible but very strange :D
If there is an event such as a wedding, birthday party, or graduation, how we will see whether we are good or not. Indeed that we decorate other people, but if the person carelessly will make us become ugly and others see? I can not imagine. Imagine if cars no rearview mirror? The car can not see the condition of the back of the vehicle. Impossible if the car wants to cross the street to spend his head up out of the window. Oh no!
It is indeed trivial but influential for life.
The mirror is an object that does not have a major impact for the life but quite difficult if this one thing does not exist.

Story on Tuesday, 21 March 2017

On Tuesday, March 21st, 2017, me and friends to follow the course "English Economics" with lecturer named Miss Dini. As usual, the room that we use when learning that the American Corner (AMCOR), located on the 2nd floor UPT Language. Me and friends rushed to get there so don’t late to class but when arrived at AMCOR, my friend named agata efa informed through the BBM(Blackberry massanger) that we were not going to use the room AMCOR to learn because the room will be used for other purposes. We were all out of AMCOR and wait downstairs, there were sitting on the stairs, there were seated on a couch, and even some that sit the floor while playing cell phone. I think this situation as children displaced :D (maybe)

Suddenly there was a bunch of elementary school children were accompanied by their accompanying teachers Towards AMCOR. Accompanying teachers instruct the children to climb the stairs in queue. "C'mon. Ladies firts, ladies first and then boy", like that what she said. then the children answered with ease by using the English language. (In my heart a little amazed).
Long story short, Miss Dini directs us all to immediately go to the British Culture and Learning Center (BCLC). When I got there, I saw the picture large map on the wall and I took pictures with my friend named Tika.  After that, we entered the room like a theater. Miss Dini was ready there to teach us. we all gather DHK and Miss Dini start learning.

Miss Dini  assigns to us to choose the books that should be read and understood. After  understood, we must write the moral values contained in the story.  I chose a book titled "Pirate Jack looks For Treasure". The book tells about  a pirate who finds a treasure map, while on the road he met a parrot who was pegged bean and led together to find the treasure. Then they walk on the banks of the river flow, he met a boy who was repairing his bike. The boy was to go with him to look for treasure. when they arrived at the treasure, they dig. The first excavation seen a lot of beans and a parrot saying "this is what I need". Excavation in the second, there is a bicycle tire and the boy said, "Wow, this is perfect for fixing my bike".  Pirate disappointed with the treasure that he met and chose to go. Then the boy was digging again and find the treasure, immediately notify the pirate that do not go away and the pirates are very pleased to see what the boy was found.

The moral value of the story is:
1.      We should be trying to reach something what we want.
2.      Don’t give up in the midst of the struggle or search because there is something unwanted things happen.
3.      Cooperation can facilitate a mission.
4.      Never judge something from begining without knowing what happened of the end.
5.      Not greedy for wealth.
Every story must have moral values, we must learn from the story.

BTW, this photo at British Culture and Learning Center (BCLC)

Until here my story, hopefully useful ;)

My Skills


For this second blog, I will discuss about skill. Acctually, I do not know fully what skill that in my self  because my skills are still relatively raw and needs to be sharpened again or mediocre. I think, something that favored could be a skill. My penchant for dancing, dancing might arguably my skills. In dancing, the most important things that need to be noticed is the movement of the body, the suitability of the movement with music, a varied movement, expression and the suppleness of the body. There are several types of dancing, i.e., traditional dance and modern dance. Traditional dances come from every region, while modern dance came from Western culture. Examples of traditional dances namely jaipong dance, Malay dance and dayak dance, while modern dance that is beakdance, shuffle, and popping. The kind of dance that I get into since Elementary School (SD) that is the traditional dance. When I was in elementary school (SD), often showing several dances for the separation as much as 2-3 dance appearance. At the time of junior high school, I attended a dance class and follow the dance contest district level. But unfortunately, only got the 2nd champion. Entry level high school, I rarely dance anymore and when it's no longer my dancing skills develop because variety of reasons. Maybe until here I share my story about my skills. Skills in the slightest, as bad as anything can be an amazing skills if the capabilities honed well.
See you next story reader.

28th of February 2017

On the 28th of February 2017 our class got the task group from Miss Dini. The Question is:
1. Why have we chosen economics education?
2. Would you like to work for a company, teach economic disciplines at university or operate your own enocomic business?
3. Do you think you have entrepreneurial flair or talent? What traits is a succesful bussinessman supposed to possess?

And the answer from our group is :
1. We choose economics education at FKIP Untan because various reason. First, the main purpose nor for lecture but want to study at Official Juty School to be civil servant after study learning there. Second reason, because not pass to the first choice, at Economics Faculty and finally pass in last choice at FKIP Untan Economics Education. And the last reason is parents choice. But from all reason why we choose economics education because great job opportunities.
2. We would like to work for a company because of our skill isn’t a businessman and also to be teach economic disciplines at university dosn’t have the ability. And we would like to wok for a company because in a company the work definitely match with our division that has determined by supervisior and work in company may look more neat and cool.
3. We don’t have enterpreneurel flair. In our opinion a successful bussinessman should have an ability to looking a market opportunity, make an idea to interent the customer, compete with the another bussinessman, ability to sell a product to interest the customer and also has a strong mental when we failed

Why I Continue My Study To University Level?

      Senior high school is the most enjoyable times, depressing, exciting, and meaningful for some people. However, after the end of high school we must think about our future, if you want to go to college, want to work or want to enter the armed forces. 
Let me introduce myself, my name is Putri Nabilah, i’m from Sungai Burung street, Mempawah regency. I’m graduated from SMA N 1 Siantan and now i am a student collage economics education at FKIP Untan. When I was in the third grade in high school, I was already planning to go to college in order to add insight, knowledge, abilities, relationships, and most importantly can get my dream job is working in an office, a bank teller, civil servants, and a secretary in a big company. Besides, the reason i want to continue to college because I know that with a high school diploma is not enough to get a job I dreamed. In fact, economic education at FKIP Untan not my choice. The reason why I could be a student here because of the choices my mother wanted me to become a teacher, so when registering my SBMPTN include economic education. At first, I chose when registering SBMPTN there are three choices, but the first option and the second option does not pass. The first choice is the accounting at the  Economics Faculty Untan, the second choice in the science of public administration at the FISIP Untan and third choice is enonomics education at FKIP Untan. But the pass is economics education at FKIP Untan. 
However, of all the reasons I chose economics education because has a great employment opportunities, both in education and economics. Finally despite graduating in the last resort and not my desire. I would have taken it with all my heart for quickly earned a degree so as to reach my dreams and made my parents and families proud to me. Last but not least,i just wanna say thank you whoever read my story and see you in the next story.
