Goo Goo Dolls – Let Love In

Goo Goo Dolls Let Love In

John Rzeznik as we know,
or at least myself, know that he is a lyrical genius..
What he feels, what he has been through,

what he expresses, is what We have all been through..

The writing here is great,
with a lot of hopefulness
to counteract the underlying sadness..

Emotional and poetic, but at the same time,
it’s quite predictable and safe..
Just like when you felt, you know,
Everything means more now than words can explain..”
This is just my opinion..

Well, if you watch Serial TV – Chuck,
then you’ll know this video, see below.
The video was taken from Chuck & Sarah,

at Eps 1.04 Chuck vs The Wookie..
Hope you Enjoy it..

Why Do Women Love Mechanical Engineer..??

Mechanical Engineer

I’ve got this article from facebook Mechanical Engineer group..
It’s so great and so true…But, It’s just for fun, okay..!!

Why Do Women Love Mechanical Engineer..??
Because :
1. The world does revolve around us… We choose the coordinate system..
2. No “couple” enjoy a better “moment”..
3. We know how to handle stress and strain in a relationship..
4. We have significant figures..
5. We understand the motion of rigid bodies..
6. Projectile motion: Do we need to say more..??
7. Engineers do it to specification..
8. According to Newton, if 2 bodies interact, forces are equal and opposite
9. It’s not the length of the vector that counts, but how We apply the force..
10. And, WE KNOW THE RIGHT HAND RULE..!!

wuakakakwkakwk…

“Bahasa” Kantor..

Office Talk

In case you don’t know by now… (buat ketawa2 aja, he3)..

ASAP
Singkatan dari As Soon As Possible, biasanya dipakai oleh atasan yang minta laporan dari bawahannya. Paling males dapet email yang subjectnya ASAP pake huruf gede. Biasanya laporan ini sifatnya dadakan bgt. Celakanya, bagi bawahan, laporan inilah yg biasanya paling lama dicuekin, alias gak diduga2 kalo sewaktu2 bos minta, walhasil..JEBRET! Lembur sampe pagi!

TENTATIVE

Kata sakti yang biasanya dipakai untuk menjelaskan sesuatu di masa depan yang kurang jelas menjadi lebih gak jelas. Apalagi kalo dalam suasana meeting yang udah sangat gak produktif dan super ngebosenin, kalo bisa semua keputusan bersifat tentative. Yang penting cepet pulang…

MEETING
Harusnya sih RAPAT dalam EYD. Tapi mo gimana lagi? Dah bekennya begitu, kalo bilang rapat, kesannya mo ke pak RT atau pak Lurah aja…(ha3..)

TARUH DI MEJA SAYA
Salah satu dari sedikit kalimat berbahasa Indonesia yang dapat mewakili status si pengucapnya. Biasanya kalimat ini diucapkan oleh : Owner kepada Direktur. Direktur kepada GM. GM kepada Manager. Manager kepada
Supervisor. Supervisor kepada Staff . Staff kepada OB dan terakhir OB kepada tukang bubur ayam. Kebayang kan? Betapa susahnya kalo sang Owner mo sarapan bubur?

AFTER LUNCH
Untuk menunjukan waktu yang HARUSnya jam 1 siang, tapi biasanya kalimat ini dipakai kalo janjian dengan level sesama manager atau diatasnya. Kalau masih janjian sesama staff or supervisor mah simple aja “Abis makan deh” atau “Makan dolo bro, baru kita sambung”.. Note : Setinggi2nya level anda, jangan sampai bilang “Makan dolo bro” ke Owner.

OVERTIME
Bahasa Indonesianya Lembur. Tapi somehow, overtime lebih keren. Soalnya kalo lembur kayak OB & Driver…

Flying to chase the dream

Thank God, you gave me an exciting opportunity…
Yeah, I believe, I got this job, only because of God…
Because, as Mechanical Piping Engineer,
What do I know about piping..???Only a basic, to be honest…

I’m a fresh graduate, and need to learn a lot,
take time to adapt in my new environment, or something like that…
But, in the company that I’m working now,
they want to involve me to go to the field, directly…

My Project Manager wants me to go to the field with a few Senior Mechanical Piping Engineer..
It’s for L-Project.. LBO plant of Pertamina in Dumai..
It’s impossible to say “no”, of course…
So, I will go to Dumai, ’till end of this month (April 2009)…
Wow, it’s really really exciting…

Maybe it’ll be hard because it’s my first experienced to work in a field,
but I really felt thankful for this opportunity…
An opportunity where I could learn a lot, gained my knowledge, and sharpen my engineer’s sense…

And, This is a “first time” for everything that related with my career life,
This is a “first time” that I have to leave my comfortable “zone”…
and I hope it’ll give a great impact for my self-development..
Also, I hope, It will “open” a lot of opportunity that God will offer to me in the future…

You suddenly give me this unexpected opportunity…
You really “train” me in “a different” way from other people…

ALHAMDULILLAH…

Dumai, here I come….

Interview : Your Biggest Weakness?

Job interview

You know I’ve been unemployed for several months after The Graduation.
I had a lot of interview to attend, and also lot of fail, it sucks actually..
And, to be honest, this is the toughest question for me..
That’s why, I really want to write about it..I hope it’s useful for you…

It’s the question job applicants fear most:
“So tell me,” says the smiling interviewer, “what’s your biggest weakness?”

If you think a good answer is you’re “a perfectionist who won’t quit until the job’s done right,” think again. The interviewer has probably heard the same thing from countless other applicants and doesn’t believe it’s a weakness any more than you do.

According to Vicky Oliver, author of 301 Smart Answers to Tough Interview Questions, the worst thing you can do is give your interviewer a “canned” answer, such as saying you are a workaholic.

Applicants who give such a typical answer may be perceived as dishonest or unoriginal. The interviewer is likely to say,
“That sounds like a strength to me. What’s another weakness you have?”

Oliver is one of 40 career experts and hiring managers and, here’s a summary of their advice:

Serial TV : Heroes (3rd Season Vol.4)

heroes TV

My Rating (for current season) : 9.0 / 10
More Info: here


As far as I believe, everybody must know this Serial TV…
Just like everybody know about Superman, Star Wars, Harry Potter, etc..
So, I don’t want to explain much about the character, or introduction “stuff”..

Yeah, you know, this serial TV is My All-Time Favorite..
Yup, All-Time Favorite..The Number One…!!!

Heroes, the show that came out of nowhere has gained huge popularity on NBC based on a comic book-style narration… even with non-geeks. It’s better than any other action/drama TV series (past and present), and is better than any movie series (even those based on comic books) will be..

First Development

Heroes began development during pilot season in 2006, when Tim Kring, came up with the show’s concept. Kring wanted to create a “large ensemble saga” that would connect with the audience. He began thinking about how big, scary and complicated he felt the world is, and wanted to create a character-driven series about people who could do something about it.

Kring felt that a cop, medical, or Lost-type drama did not have characters that were big enough to save the world. He came up with the thought of superheroes, ordinary people who would discover extraordinary abilities, while still rooted in the real world and in reality.

The Uncertainty of Tomorrow

uncertainty-of-life

For all I know, people live much of their lives in uncertainty..
What might happen in a week…a month…a year…
and, so do I…

Since I was a kid, I know life or the future is a puzzle..
Every piece fits together to create who we are, what we do, & how we feel..
Every experience shapes us into who we will eventually become..
That’s why I never judge on people, I think people are complex..
They’re not good or bad just like black or white..
Yeah, I think labels are destructive..

Because, all people have their own fate..
And, as far as I believe,
everything always happens for a reason..
Nothing happens by chance or by means of good or bad luck..

And what happen to me today..??
I am facing fear of moment like I never have before..
A critical moment on my life journey,
when I find myself in an emotional crisis,
that seems to defy every positive thing I’ve embraced..
You could say that it’s fear’s last stand..
It wants to control the situation to “make it turn out right.”
In fact, it’s trying to survive, to be honest..
And the worst part, I feel that I’m facing this utterly alone…

GreenDay – Wake Me Up When September Ends

wake-me-up-when-september-ends2
The song makes me think of September 11…Cause, It says September…
Although the song originally was centered around Billie Joe Armstrongs’ personal tragedy, Samuel Bayer created his own personal vision..
His interpretation is brought to life with both power and restraint,
and is likely to provoke tears, a visceral human response to pain..

But, anyways that’s what the song is about..You know, just like “this is life“,
and I think they portray that extremely well through this song…

They decided to make music video (you can see below) about the Iraq war because of its had a big effect on everyone..
It is fleshed out by images of young romance and graphic battle scenes.
The end of the mini-film’s story is ambiguous,
and this ambiguity gives “Wake Me Up When September Ends” much of its power..

For me, this song is the best form Green Day, ever..!!
This songs makes me think about how I miss the past of my life,
and at the same time It makes me look at the future and wonder..
Besides, a lot of things happen in my life in September…
My birthday, my thesis seminar, and also my final test of my bachelor thesis, etc…
