Anigata, Abhipraya, Gathapraya!

30th of September, 2017, was the date of my school's annual school cultural festival,
"Gathapraya". It was one of the most waited things to happen in our school. The excitement, the hype, the anticipation made for the event can't be described in words. We all were so excited for the event to start.
Before that, the Gathapraya committee worked so hard to prepare the festival. They worked everyday, selling stuffs like rice boxes and other foods everyday to people to fulfill the budget needed for the festival. They also worked day and night on weekends promoting the festival itself! Every Sunday, they go to the Car Free Day festival at Dago doing garage sales and promoting our beloved festival. The decoration team also worked very hard the last two weeks! They wouldn't mind spending their time to rest just to create the decorations used for the festival. If they usually come home around 4 pm, they would go home at 8 pm just to …

An Experience When You Feel Thankful, Grateful, and Blessed

Hello, readers!

Don't you think, that feeling blessed and grateful is one of the best feelings in the world? When you are really desperate at that time, but someone helped you. When you really need someone, and someone comes there to help you.
Thankful, Grateful, and Blessed.
I wanted to share one thing I read yesterday while I was checking my Instagram feeds. One of my friends liked a post about a GO-JEK driver helping his customer, without wanting any payment back.
So, one day, a girl who is studying at Universitas Indonesia woke up a little bit late, so she's in a bit of hurry. She had something to print, but she doesn't have a printer in the place where she lives at. Because she's in a hurry too, she decided to go outside and check for the nearest photocopy store.
Unfortunately, it was Sunday! No photocopies were open around that time, 8 a.m. in the morning. She was really desperate. She has to complete her work on that day! She needed to print a name tag to use in …

All About Me

Hello! My name is Marchotridyo. I am a student at 3 Senior High School Bandung. I'm a boy, and I like playing music, gathering with my friends, and sleeping.
I was born in Bontang, at the 1st of March 2002. I only lived there for like 1 year. So, I have no memories what so ever in Bontang, so I can't tell you much about it. Then I moved to Makassar because my dad's job forced him to move there. If my memories were right, I stayed there for a bit because I had my playgroup days there. And after that I moved to Semarang where I had my pre-school days (kindergarten) until grade 1. I moved to Surabaya after that, until grade 3. After that, I moved to Bandung where I am staying until now.
If you're wondering how I look like, you might imagine someone with an average height, black hair, and I wear glasses. For my skin color, it's quite brown, just like the most of the people here. I quite like sports too! I play as a goalkeeper in soccer, and I do like playing badminton …
