Recently I just realized how important keeping a true friendship after seeing many of my true friends who began start a relationship of love. Mother was right, you have to be a friend to have a friend. We can not live without friends. We need to have friends as we need air to breath.
A true friend is someone who sticks by us when we are down and celebrates with us when we are up. It’s someone we trust. It is someone who understands us, knows the real us and appreciates the person we are.
I realize sometimes friendships disintegrate or people grow out of them. Maybe they’re always spending time with their love. But if I’m not spend time together, have fun together and talk (I mean really talk about our life, decisions, whatever is going on), the friendship probably will not last.
So friends, these are I have learned in todays. Make countless of friends and keeping a true friendship for life before decide becoming exclusive to someone. I’m sure it’s worth waiting for, because we are born to be loved and love. 🙂
Last week, I went to Toyota car repair shop with my dad. It was my first time going to that repair shop. This is the service I get: on time, treats, and good solution. I know, these are a simple thing but from those simple things can bring great impact to the customer.
The thing that I can notice are,
1. Don’t make promises unless you will keep them. Especially in making an appointment for the first time. We must make a great ‘first impression’ to our customer. So we can grow their trustworthiness in us.
2. Be helpful – even if there’s no immediate profit in it.
At the age of seventeen, I wish I knew what is the best decisions when encountered crossroad. A crossroad is where you are at a point of your life when you have to make some major decisions on where you want to go,what you want to do and move a step closer to your dreams and goals. Here are the three things.
1. Get to know yourself. Recognize yourself. What would be your favorite thing in life. Discover your gifts and talents.
2. Know your roots. Don’t forget your past. Your past is your identity, you may say that you don’t live in the past anymore but your past has made you what you’re today.
3. Follow your dreams. The most enjoyable thing in life if you can do what you love for the rest of your life.
However these are I have learned in life. All of us must have made a mistake. But never allowing ourself to made mistake is such a bad choice. Trouble is a friend. In life, we learned from experience through mistakes that we made.

Martografi is one of extracurricular that exist in Petra Christian University. In this workshop we learned about the lighting set up in the photo studio. Very crowded there and the important think is we can have fun togeher. Not like any other photoshoot I had done, we had to take turns with other students here. So we must set in our mind, what light set up and what pose we would to take before our turn started. It’s such a great experience I can learn together with friends. 🙂
Here’s a short video I took, very short, because my battery got low 😦 I hope you can enjoy it
