Education in its general sense is a form of learning in which the knowledge, skills, and habits of a group of people are transferred from one generation to the next through teaching, training, or research. Education frequently takes place under the guidance of others, but may also be autodidactic. Any experience that has a formative effect on the way one thinks, feels, or acts may be considered educational. Education is commonly divided into stages such as preschool, primary school, secondary school and then college, university or apprenticeship.

  • href='NATURE'> NATURE

    Nature, in the broadest sense, is equivalent to the natural, physical, or material world or universe. "Nature" refers to the phenomena of the physical world, and also to life in general. It ranges in scale from the subatomic to the cosmic.


    Science is the concerted human effort to understand, or to understand better, the history of the natural world and how the natural world works, with observable physical evidence as the basis of that understanding. It is done through observation of natural phenomena, and/or through experimentation that tries to simulate natural processes under controlled conditions


    Peace cannot be achieved through violence, it can only be attained through understanding. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Narrative Writing - Task 5

Posted by Ritma Ratri Meilia on 07:29

Description of Narrative Writing
        Narrative writing tells a story that happens in the past. Good narrative writing is more than a list of random events. It sets up the tale, builds to a high point, and winds down during the resolution. Narrative writing usually has tension – a problem to be solved or a challenge to be overcome. There is a reason for the telling. It also has a setting (a time and place within which events occur) and characters (who may include the narrator, the person recounting the story).

How is Narrative Writing Different from Other Writing Genres?

          Narrative writing and recount writing are almost same. They tell about past events. What makes narrative different from other genres especially recount is that narrative writing has tension or a problem/conflict to be solved, it may end with sad or happy ending. While recount writing only tells about series of events in the logical order.

Here’s the difference between them :
·        Narrative Writing

·        Recount Writing

How to Make a Narrative Writing

          To write a narrative essay, you’ll need to tell a story (usually about something that happened to you) in such a way that he audience learns a lesson or gains insight. Tell a story about a moment or event that means a lot to you--it will make it easier for you to tell the story in an interesting way!

Steps for writing effective narrative :
·     The introduction grabs the reader’s attention.
·     The setting for the story is described.
·     Some characters are introduced.
·     Give a hint of the problem to come.

Example :

·     Can be single or numberous paragraphs.
·     Provide lots of details, adjectives, adverbs and action words.
·     The problem or excitement is outlined.
·     All characters are introduced and discussed.
·     Conside the sequence of events.

     Example :

·     Final resolution of the problem.
·     The ending is effective; could be happy, startling, sad etc.
·     Provide a final thought or moral message (coda)

Showing the Topic Sentence in Our Narrative Writing

            One of bad experience in my life was failure of being accepted in the university. It happened after my father bought me a new notebook. I was a good student actually. People called me Ritma.
            In the beautiful day, I was very happy that my father bought me a notebook, it was a cool thing that I really wanted for a long time. Everything was fine in the beginning, but as the time went by, my whole days turned into an ‘insanity’. I spent my whole days in front of my notebook without any reasons. I did not really care anymore about my school, my grade, or even people around me.  I felt more alive in my own world. My mother asked me to stop it and started studying because the test enter a university was closer, I just answered by saying “yes, mom...” but I did not do it at all.
            One day, my father found that I never studied for the test, he was angry then decided to send me to join the course for about one month and I said “okay”. It did not change anything at all. After went home, I did the same thing just as before.
            The test was getting closer and finally it was begun. I still did not have any idea what I had learnt from my course, I just answered the questions that I knew, and the rest were by my own instinct. After that, my parents asked me about the test, I just simply said that it was not that bad. They seemed did not trust my words, I just smiled. My father said that if I could not pass the test, he would be very angry and about to do a bad thing or somekind of that. I thought that he would like to kill me.
            Two weeks after the test, the result was announced via online. I could not hide my fears anymore. My parents impatiently waited me to say a word, I knew that they really wanted me to say “I am accepted”. I opened my account and checked it. I was panic and scared when I saw the words “sorry, you are not accepted”. I was confused how to tell that to my parents. I knew for sure that they would be very angry if they saw it, but I decided to let them knew and I had to take all the risk that I had made. I listened to all my father’s anger and I just cried without any words came out by my mouth. That day was so gloomy and my eyes were so puffy because of my tears.
            Suddenly, my mother said to me slowly to stop crying, but I cried even harder and just could say sorry. She said that she had prepared the plan B for the worst condition. So, my mother asked me to prepare all the things to register on the other university, and she said that she did not want to see me sad anymore. I thanked her so much. At that time, I thought that my mother was a very kind person in the world. Then, I started to study hard and promised to never do the same thing anymore.
            Finally, I was accepted in Muhammadiyah University of Metro. I had learnt many things from that experience, never go full retard, do not be lazy to study, and always listen to your parents’ words. “Success” depends on the second letter of the word. If plan A  did not work, the alphabet still has 25 more letters.

Explanation about ‘Why ARE They Called as Topic Sentences’
Topic Sentence

One of bad experience in my life was failure of being accepted in the university.
... (paragraph 1)
This sentence is called topic sentence because it contains a complete sentence. Then, it is the main topic that will be developed in supporting details.

Everything was fine in the beginning, but as the time went by, my whole days turned into an ‘insanity’. ... (Paragraph 2)
This is called topic sentence because it is the keywords about what will be explained more in the next sentences or paragraphs. It tells about ‘insanity’ or doing the same thing over and over again. It also brings to the complication or problem.

The test was getting closer and finally it was begun. ... (Paragraph 4)
This is a topic sentence because the next sentences are the detail information about how the test occurs.

Two weeks after the test, the result was announced via online. ... (Paragraph 5)
This is a topic sentence and the next sentences explain how the result of the announcement, such as “I opened my account and checked it, I was panic and scared when I saw the words “sorry, you are not accepted”, etc.
She said that she had prepared the plan B for the worst condition.

... (Paragraph 6)
‘She’ refers to ‘’my mother”, this called topic sentence because there’s a keyword ‘Plan B’ that will be explained in the next sentences.
Finally, I was accepted in Muhammadiyah University of Metro.
... (paragraph 7)
This is the topic sentence of conclusion or ending. Then the next sentences talks about the lesson of this failure experience.

Another ENIGMA ~

Posted by Ritma Ratri Meilia on 08:13


Whatever you do in life will be insignificant
But it’s very important that you do it, cause
Nobody else will

Can’t take back the cards you dealt on this long and lonely road to hell
The throne must be such a sad and lonely place
Living breathing flesh and blood, sweat and tears swept under the rug
I’m just a number to you, just ones and twos

The power keeps you feeling high but how low
Do you sink into your bed at night
(Anchored down with guilt)
Do you toss and turn from all the bridges you’ve burned
Or are you proud of all, the hatred you’ve earned

A conscience buried deep beneath, a heart stuck in a skeleton of greed
And eyes that can’t see that happiness is so far out of reach

- Our Last Night 

Cerita Horror yang Tidak Menyeramkan -_- /fail

Posted by Ritma Ratri Meilia on 07:46

I’ve been here a while, staring at this screen wondering what I’ll write.
The things I can’t explain, but should’ve tried to say when I have the time.
You are inspiration when no one else believed.
You show me strength in my skin, when no one else could see.

Okay,  back to the real objective (?)
The one and the only..... /wut?
I’m just, I’m justtttt..
I mean, I’ll write a kind of fiction story here..

Enjoy the show! #duagh xD

A horror - mystery fiction story... jeng jeng!!!! (Backsound : Kangen Band - Selingkuh Nonono~ Jesper Kyd - The Plague) #lah?

Can I start it now ?

Maybe for most of people, the darkness is awful, horrible..
But for Vaas, darkness is useful.
Yes, useful...
You didn’t read it wrong, it’s useful for his flesh and blood..

My Shadow

            A boy is entering his house hurriedly, sweat soaks his shirt. His name is Vaas. Without taking off his basketball shoes, Vaas gets into his room and locks the door closely, as if there will be someone who enter his room if he doesn’t close it.
            Closing the door seems not enough, then Vaas immediately reaches electric switch lamp beside the door that just locked down. With his trembling hands, he starts to press that electric switch, so that his room now becomes totally dark. After that, he makes it sure that there’s no light inside, even it’s just a bit. 
            Vaas is in vigilance mode, then he walks slowly to his cupboard. He is looking for a video recorder.The question is , what for? 
            Yes, you’re right. He wants to record something, to be exact, record himself.
            After changing that video recorder into infra red mode, Vaas puts it on the table in front of him, whereas he sits down right in front of the video recorder and starts to record himself.
            “Err,, let me introduce myself, my name is Franklin Vaas, all of people around me call me Vaas.. I just wanna record myself before that horrible thing really happens to me and I can’t tell it to others. That horrible thing happened a week ago, when I went home from practicing basketball  at my school. It was when I ate in my dinning room and only 5 watts lamp that accompanied me, it caused my shadow seemed so clear on my wall beside me. At that time, I was bored eating and I didn’t know what else to do, I just actually wanted to back into my room but it was too difficult to stand up, so I decided to have daydream for a while...”
            In intervals of recording, Vaas looks around trembling. Then he continues his recording...
            “After I felt satisfied daydreaming, I decided to walk to my room, but, when I looked at my shadow, my shadow was getting away from me and it was smaller, but I felt it was only my imagination because I was so tired practicing, however, it was not  just imagination or phatamorgana and seriously, now I really really feel regret by ignoring that shadow...”
            “And it happened anymore on the day after, when I wanted to go to dinning room to take a banana, it was on the night, my shadow at the beginning moved normally as well as my body moved. But, when I took the banana and moved to my shadow’s place, it kept look like getting away from me, moreover, when I put my right hand up, the left hand was put up by my shadow instead, then it started to put its two hands up and placed it on its neck, I could only see it with a horror vision, while, its hands was getting close to its neck, and with a fast motion, it started to choke its neck, whereas, who was the one that got the impact? ME! I felt so sick when that shadow started to choke its neck, and all of a sudden, it was black. When I woke up, my mother said that I just stumbled by a box and my head hit the edge of stairs, then it caused me fainted. Really, I can’t believe it! ” Vaas boosts up his voice in the end of his words.
            “However, It was not the most horrible thing that happened to me, there’s more... since that day, my shadow started to terrorize me, and the worse, I couldn’t run away from my own shadow. The worst was... when I wanted to peel the apple, I really forgot about my shadow, I didn’t think anything, then finally I started to hold the steak knife near me, indeed, it seemed weird, peeling the apple with steak knife, but it was only steak knife that I got. I just realized the existence of my shadow, then I pull my hand from that knife frightened.. But, not with it, It kept holding that knife, my shadow seemed laugh hardly and then stabbed that knife on my knee, and all of a sudden, blood spurt out from my knee, I just could crawl on the floor wanted to go to the nearer room, bath room... After I got into the bath room, it was dark, I waited my shadow attack me more, but nothing happened, at that time, I knew how to survive from my own shadow, the darkness.... So---‘’
            All of a sudden, Vaas stops his recording and stares on the door in his room...
“Vaaaaaaas~! Open the door, what happen with you?” shouts a girl that echoed in Vaas’ room..
“If you don’t want to go out, I will break the door!”
            “No!!! Don’t do that Zee!! Please~!” seen on the video recorder, Vaas looks so panic, he starts to look around, trying to  find out a way so that the girl outside that named Zee doesn’t break the door, but it’s too late...
            The door opens, immediately light outside comes into his room, video recorder on the table falls down because Vaas’ hand brush against that camera, and now the camera can only record sound, the sound is wheezing of choked breath from the boy and panic scream by the girl who tried to help him, but it’s too late...

Vaas’ last words...
          Relax, it’s fine.
            I have not thought about a living since yesterday.
            It's just a seemed like one scene of a film.
            I need lore,
            Everything has utterly changed.
          Go-goo-dbye Ze- eee..
...and his voice is getting low, then  it’s lost.
“Nooooooooooo!!!” Zee’s screaming...

Yeah! That’s it.
Nothing less, nothing more....

Critic and suggestion?
Please... ; )))
