Second Place!

As you know, one of my hobbies is playing football. And on last Friday, my team and I went to Jakarta International School to have a match in there. We leave from school at 2 pm and skip the last lesson. Before we go, Mr. Paul, our school principle gives us support for this match and hopefully we can win. Jakarta International School located in Pondok Indah in South Jakarta.

In this cup, we will play 5 games. We will against Global Jaya International School, Jakarta International School team A and team B, Sekolah Pelita Harapan, and Sekolah Tiara Bangsa. We already beat them in the last tournament so we have a change to win this match.

And at the end of this cup, we have to win have the same number of goal with Jakarta International B. So it is makes us have to win the last game if we want to get the first place. But we didn’t win, so we only get the second place. But we already play really well and I wish on the next match, we can get the first place.

My Curiosity

by makelessniose
If I have to write something about curiosity I will write about why should I learn history. It started when I was in grade 4, the first time I knew about history. I learned about World War I and II. There were so many parties involved and then each time they kept growing and created new countries. After one war was finished something changed for a while before another war erupted. I hate the feeling that I had to remember the chronologies and people and the place and the time and the events of what happened in each country such as the conference, and the pledges. Each event leads to another complicated event. It is like a never-ending circle.

Another topic that I dislike was about kingdom. Mostly it was about what has the king done such as the temple, the inscription, the royal and the people who work for them.  There are so many kingdoms in Indonesia. Each of them has their own influences a philosophy and power to be the best. The complication starts when the kingdom was divided into two and at the same time, another kingdom was created, which means more things to remember.

The worst is, I have to memorize all of it accurately in order to pass the test. So in my head, it is full of the name of the people, the time, the places, the name of the kingdom, the religions, the reason it collapsed, the successor after the king died, the contents of the pledge and the effect of it, which I think all are useless. Until these days I still don’t understand what is the benefit of learning history. The heroes are died, the places was bombed, and the people are killed, it is all happened at the past and we cannot change even a thing, so why we have to learn history if there is no significance in the real life?
