Based on exponential probability models of time, probability of waiting 5 minutes for the bus is the same as probability of waiting another one hour. It is funny how people try so hard to predict the future, but at least statistician do learn well about life.
In much reality view, same goes to the how many time you will get your heart broken. Thinking statistically, probability you will get hurt twice, thrice and even infinity, will always be the same. Because they hold the property of memoryless in the model.
Same as we human, we forget and live
*Jotted when in the mood for both statistics and cancer development exams. my brain is already twisted enough.
Ada orang yang menghabiskan waktunya berziarah ke mekkah,
Aada orang yang menghabiskan waktunya berjudi di wiraza,
Ttapi aku ingin menghabiskan waktu ku disisi mu sayang ku….
Bicara tentang anjing-anjing kita yang nakal dan lucu
Atau tentang bunga-bunga yang manis di lembah mandala wangi
Ada serdadu-serdadu Amerika yang mati kena bom di danang
Ada bayi-bayi yang lapar di Biafra
Tapi aku ingin mati disisi mu manisku
Setelah kita bosan hidup dan terus bertanya-tanya
Tentang tujuan hidup yang tidak satu setan pun tahu
Mari sini sayangngku
Kalian yang pernah mesra Yang pernah baik dan simpati padaku
Tegaklah ke langit luas Atau awan yang menang
Kita tak pernah menanamkan apa-apa
Kita takkan pernah kehilangan apa-apa
Nasib terbaik adalah tidak pernah dilahir
Yang kedua dilahirkan tapi mati muda
Dan yang tersial adalah berumur tua
Berbahagialah mereka yang mati muda
Mahluk kecil kembalilah dari tiada ke tiada
Berbahagialah dalam ketiadaanmu
I found this poem randomly. No, I believe God lead me to this inspiring yet romantics poem. This is the last poem written by Soe Hok Gie. In fact, his diary was published titled Soe Hok-Gie: Diary of a Young Indonesian Intellectual by Dr John Maxwell in 1997. Can you believe that? It is only his diary. What is in your diary then?
A little bit on his biography taken from Wiki. His work become the one of motivation for the country under the cruelty of the leader. In his time, he becomes the activist under the regime of Indonesia's founding father Sukarno, which was characterised with conflict between the military and the Indonesian Communist Party (PKI).However, Soe and his friends insisted that they were politically neutral; I love this part. As much as Soe has respect for Sukarno as Indonesia's founding father, Soe detested Sukarno's dictatorship which caused the poor and the oppressed to suffer. Soe was well aware of the social inequality, power abuse, and corruption under the government of Sukarno, and courageously spoke out against it in discussion groups, student unions, and wrote sharp criticisms in the media.
He believes in this , which is quoted by himself "It is better to be singled out than to surrender to hypocrisy”.
but from my personal favorite from him is
“Saya tidak mahu menjadi pohon bambu, saya mahu jadi pohon oak yang berani menentang angin”
Remember the last poem he wrote above :
“ Nasib terbaik adalah tidak pernah dilahir
Yang kedua dilahirkan tapi mati muda
Dan yang tersial adalah berumur tua "
He died at such a young age, 27 years old. God granted his dream.
I’ve come across a very good movie. It all starts with Jonathan Rhyss Meyer being in the movie. Of course :-)
At some point of your life, no matter how hard you give in, how hard you try you end up with just one choice; which is to give up. But when that point comes, you just have to close your eyes, pray your luck be with you.
There is one saying when child was born, you not hoping he will be great, but hoping he will be on his luck. In this movie, he make all his point of life in just one simple game, tennis.
The man who said "I'd rather be lucky than good" saw deeply into life. People are afraid to face how great a part of life is dependent on luck. It's scary to think so much is out of one's control. There are moments in a match when the ball hits the top of the net, and for a split second, it can either go forward or fall back. With a little luck, it goes forward, and you win. Or maybe it doesn't, and you lose.
Or the truth is, at some point of your life, when life somehow is not in your own’s control anymore, you afraid . I know it is scary, cause I am scared too. But you must believe that
This is what I do today. I have a ballroom dancing exam. Not so much practice. Not so much studying. All you have to do is to trust yourself making every step, without looking down at your feet.
My partner just smile when I made a wrong step, tend to do Cha Cha step in Rumba. Maybe, it just Cha Cha rhythm keep playing in my head. It rhymes sounds so good in my head, and my feet just obey, and surprisingly even the Rumba song loudly played in the hall
