About Magnificent Life of a Student

the only friend you can count to keep you stay awake

What do you think is the most crucial part of being a student?

studying?

no, that’s not a part, that’s life obligation.

cheating on exam?

no, that’s not a part of a being, it’s what we call a naturalist escapement from life depression.

wooing the professor?

no, .. that’s just, .. what we call a bonus, of a bad habit.

the most crucial part of being a student izzzzz … homework.

yes, it is. You can just wooing around, or cheating on presentation, and studying like crazy, but you can’t just get away from homework. It can be your most frightening nightmare in a very bright Jogja days.

It seem to me at the first semester, studying American studies won’t be that difficult just like my other friends in graduate school, I mean, we used to be so relaxed and off schedule. Wrong. There are no relaxed days when it comes to graduate school, there’s no even a single day for being off-scheduled when we talk about school days.

In a life of student, you need to always be prepared, you need to be always alarmed, especially when your professor is not in a good mood while having your class. When she’s in a good mood, sometimes it’s quite easy to get, what so called a two-star A, when he’s not it’s a good moof. Be ready to be called a materialistic Marxist.

These two weeks might be my busiest days ever, or all. So we had this systematical homework schedule with a week DEADline, too much to do that I can’t even decide which one should I work on first. Just found out last Friday that I have this much homeworks, and I have sooooo much branches and twigs in my brain and I can’t focus in only one thing I was doing, as I could drop everything for one major work.

Monday:

1. Presentation for ‘American Studies and the Creative Present’

2. Preparing reading material for SM English afternoon class

3. Preparing presentation material for a meeting with the University General Secretary, talking about the research study we’re going to have in October

Tuesday:

1. Paper for Ekranisation class for Little Woman Message Analysis

2. Presentation for American Law Class: Theories of Law and Society

Wednesday:

1. Presentarion for American Folk Culture class: Myth, rhyme, game and riddle

2. Preparing reading material for SM English afternoon class

3. Working on the research study tour sponsorship proposal

Thursday:

1. Presentation for sponsorship proposal

2. Working on American Modern Literature paper: Robert Frost poem analysis

Friday:

1. Two paper analyses for Popular Literature class: Children literature

2. Preparing reading material for SM English afternoon class.

I think it’s just because I’ve never been into this kind of many pressure before, working on days just like a real student and teacher at the same time. I know my life would be so much complicated when it comes to pursuing science and carrier and it times for me to grow up.

These days activities are spent sitting in a cafe, doing on my job as relaxed as I can, with my two other halves. Facing off our own computer, neglecting each other and being autistic, that’s the best we can do.

Yes, it’s depressing, It’s totally hard to live the days. But I guess still, this is the happiest day to live for I realize I got the very chance most people don’t have. I am a graduate scholar, and I should be proud of that. I’m doing all the best I can, I’m showing the world what I can do.

And when everything seems so hard, I drop everything and watch the only song suits to this time.

SHINee: A – Yo. =D

[종현] 가끔 혼자서 길을 걷다
잠시 멈춰 주윌 한번 둘러보다
[온유] 혼자라는 기분에 힘이 들 땐
그땐 나를 따라해 나를 나를 따라해, eh

[태민] 또 혼자서 잠에 들다
[민호] 애써 꾸벅꾸벅 지친 눈을 감다
[Key] 자꾸 많은많은 생각에 잠 못들 땐
그땐 나를 따라해 나를 나를 따라해, eh

*[All] A-yo, 힘이 들 땐
둥타닥 rhythm에 기대어, oh
널 향한 우리의 노래로, oh
모두 a-yo, 모두 a-yo

A-yo, 잠 못들 땐
툭 털어 rhythm에 맡기고, oh
펼쳘질 내일에 기대로, oh
모두 a-yo, 모두 a-yo*

[태민] IQ는 두자리
시험 점수도 두자리
전교 석차는 세자리
도대체, why, why

[Key] 하루 온종일
돌아오는 건 잔소리
오늘도 책상 앞에선
뭘한거니, why, why

[종현] 숨가쁜 하루에
쉴 곳 하나 없어도, oh, oh
절대 약해지지마, ah, ah
No way, no way

[온유] 서러운 맘
알아줄이 없어도, oh, oh
절대 포기하지마, ah, ah
Your way, your way

*Repeat

[Key] 믿었던 사람아
내 모든걸 바쳐 잘했건만
계절바뀌듯 변해버린 니
사랑은 bye, goodbye
[민호] 시간이 없단 말
매일같이 참아준 거짓말
[태민] 모르는척 돌아와줄거라
믿었지 그땐 그땐

[온유] 가끔씩 눈물이
두눈앞을 가려도, oh, oh
절대 약해지지마, ah, ah
No way, no way

[종현] 잠못든 밤
끝이 없어보여도, oh, oh
절대 포기하지마, ah, ah
Your way, your way

*Repeat

[Key] Woo~
힘이 들 땐 생각해
널 반겨줄 누군갈
[민호] 네가 오길 기다리며
널 향해서 웃고 있어, hey

[종현] Woo~
잠 못들 땐 기대해
또 펼쳐질 내일을
[온유] 이 밤이 가면
[종현] 내게

[종현] 가끔 혼자서 길을 걷다
[태민] 잠시 멈춰 주윌 한번 둘러보다
[온유] 혼자라는 기분에 힘이 들 땐
그땐 나를 따라해 나를 나를 따라해, eh

[태민] 또 혼자서 잠에 들다
[민호] 애써 꾸벅꾸벅 지친 눈을 감다
[Key] 자꾸 많은많은 생각에 잠 못들 땐
그땐 나를 따라해 나를 나를 따라해, eh

[All] A-yo, 힘이 들 땐
둥타닥 rhythm에 기대어, oh
널 향한 우리의 노래로, oh
모두 a-yo, 모두 a-yo

Bring it side to side, 네 슬픈 눈물
Side to side, 네 아픔 모두
툭 털어 rhythm에 맡기고, oh
모두 a-yo, 모두 a-yo

Translations
[Jonghyun] Sometimes, you walk alone
You stop for a moment and take a look around
[Onew] When you’re tired of the feeling of being alone
Follow me then, follow me, me, eh

[Taemin] You fall asleep alone again
[Minho] You try hard to doze off
You close my worn out eyes
[Key] When you still can’t sleep
Because of the many, many thoughts
Follow me then, follow me, me, eh

*[All] A-yo, when it’s tough
Doong tah dak, lean on the rhythm, oh
With our song for you
Everyone a-yo, everyone a-yo

A-yo, when you can’t sleep
Tap brush it off, leave it to the rhythm, oh
With the anticipation of the unfolding tomorrow
Everyone a-yo, everyone a-yo*

[Taemin] Your IQ is two digits, test scores are also two digits
School rank is three digits, why in the world, why, why
[Key] Throughout the entire day, only nagging returns
What are you doing at your desk today, why why

[Jonghyun] During this breathless day
Even if there’s no place to rest, oh, oh
Never become weak, ah, ah
No way, no way

[Onew] Even if there’s no one
To understand your grieving heart, oh, oh
Never give up, ah, ah
Your way, your way

*Repeat

[Key] Person I trusted, I gave you my best
But your love that changes
Like seasons do, bye, goodbye
[Minho] Saying that you don’t have time
The lies I endured every day
[Taemin] Pretending like I didn’t know
I believed that you return back then, back then

[Onew] Even if tears sometimes
Cover both your eyes
Never become weak, ah, ah
No way, no way

[Jonghyun] Even if it seems there’s no end
To sleepless night, oh, oh
Never give up, ah, ah
Your way, your way

*Repeat

[Key] Woo~
When it’s tough, think
About who will greet you
As I wait for you to come
I’m smiling for you, hey

[Jonghyun] Woo~
When you can’t sleep, wait
For another unfolding tomorrow
[Onew] When this night passes
[Jonghyun] You’ll come to me

[Jonghyun] Sometimes, you walk alone
[Taemin] You stop for a moment and take a look around
[Onew] When you’re tired of the feeling of being alone
Follow me then, follow me, me, eh

[Taemin] You fall asleep alone again
[Minho] You try hard to doze off
You close my worn out eyes
[Key] When you still can’t sleep
Because of the many, many thoughts
Follow me then, follow me, me, eh

[All] A-yo, when it’s tough
Doong tah dak
Lean on the rhythm, oh
With our song for you

Bring it side to side, your sad tears
Side to side, all your pain
Tap, brush it off
Leave it to the rhythm, oh
Everyone a-yo, everyone a-yo

  1. I miss the school time, of course with friends like you… And Ipul… Remember when we used to get addicted to a somewhat cafe with free hotspot area? And we distracted Ipul’s critical learning moment? That was so much fun!

    Anyway, what was the name of the cafe again? It’s not that Joglo cafe, it’s in HR. Bunyamin or something… The cozier one…

  2. Chocoklik you mean??

    Yes, yes, that’s what i’m thinking of while writing this post. I miss you both, would be great if we can sit on the same table again, .. the three of us!^^

  3. Yeah, chocoklik! How come I forget that cozy place?

    We’d sit on the same table again, if not in chocoklik, maybe in other cozy places. Maybe on the table by the river Thames or at a cafe under the Eiffel Tower hahahahaha😀
