Day eight : Don Carleone

"Real power and Justice cannot be given. It must be taken! "

- Don Vito Corleone

The statement is vague and it makes me go Huhh? Which one?? When he said 'it' must be taken, and this 'it' refers to what? The real power or the justice? I was watching The Godfather and found this as Fallacy of Ambiguity because the statement is vague and it doesnt tell us which one is the main claim.

Day eight : Guitarist or not?

This man is not a guitarist. he is actually a clerk that just being fired by his boss. because he felt so depress he go to the nearest guitar store to play a guitar but actually he don't know how to play the guitar then suddenly come an amateur photographer, an ugly woman, took his picture and she said she wants to make the picture as her personal collection. the man felt so proud eventhough he just got fired. this is a photo biography that i can make.

Day seven : just smile :)

It’s never (up player) been easy for me

To find words to go along, with a melody

But this time there’s actually something, on my mind

So please forgive these few brief awkward lines (Tendencious Definition)

Since I’ve met you, my whole life has changed

It’s not just my furniture, you’ve rearranged

I was living in the past, but somehow you’ve brought me back

And I haven’t felt like this since before Frankie said relax

And while I know, based on my track record

I might not seem like the safest bet (Episodic Knowlegde)

All I’m asking you, is don’t write me off, just yet

For years I’ve been telling myself, the same old story

That I’m happy to live off my so called, former glories

But you’ve given me a reason, to take another chance

Now I need you, despite the fact, that you’ve killed all my plants

And though I know, I’ve already blown more chances

Than anyone should ever get

All I’m asking you, is don’t write me off, just yet

Don’t write me off just yet (Dont's is command - can never be statement)

Day seven : Tired + phone call + angry + patience = ramadhan

Day seven : when i was a kid..

when i was in primary school at ipoh named SK Cator Avenue Ipoh, i'm such a loser because i'm not a good student and i was in a last class. i kept complaining to my mother that i'm not a good student but what my mother told me that i can do it and i can prove to all my teachers that i'm good and i deserve to be at a better class. Since i kept complaining, She never stop saying that i'm good student, i have a good ideas and brain. So, i felt so special. Since that day, i've started to study hard and prove to my teachers that i'm good. Then i seat for the final exam, and i get flying colours(Metaphor). For the next year, i'm no longer at last class. In this story, i'm using self-fulfilling prophecy.

Day six : Time Management

This afternoon I went to meet my Academic Advisor for assessment. During our conversation, he asked me whether I have prepared for the final exam. Suddenly I realized that I have not prepared for the final exam. In fact, all I know right now is to do my assignment and busy with other commitment. This is when I started to get worried and my Academic Advisor gives me some advice by saying that I need to sort all my activity and put prioritize on my study. This really makes me realize that I have a problem, which I have to solve as soon as possible.

Problem-Solving Model

Stage 1 : define the problem

I started to realize that I have neglect about my study (revision, doing tutorial) because I am more focus to do my assignment and other commitment. A question from my Academic Advisor really makes me think that final exam is just around the corner and yet I still did not do anything to prepare for the final. The main problem is I have trouble to manage my time on study, assignment and other commitment.

Problem statement: in this case, the problem is that I should start managing my time more effective to prepare for my final exam. However, the reality is I did not manage my time effectively and this makes me neglecting my study.

Stage 2 : Analyze the problem

Answering some of the question from Kepner-Tregoe:

How big is the problem?

For this problem is very big since it is about my study and it will effect my CGPA if I do not perform well during the final exam.

What event cause this problem?

My bad time management really make me to not doing revision since I ‘m more focus on assignments and commitment to other activity I have joined.

How long has it existed?

This problem already existed since the middle of this trimester where I started to ignore on my study (did not do revision, tutorial, etc). However, I only realized about this situation today and it really make me worried.

Stage 3 : Identify possible solution

Solution 1-focus only on study

Solution 2-make timetable to manage my time more effective

Solution 3-just go with the flow

Stage 4 : Decide on the appropriate alternative

Solution 1-focus only on study (2:2)

Advantage: make me well prepare for final, do not have to think about other commitment.

Disadvantage: people will say I am not committed with my commitment of the program I have joined, might get bored if only focus on study all the time.

Solution 2-make timetable to manage my time more effective (2:1)

Advantage: still can join other activity, still can focus on my study.

Disadvantage : must follow the timetable

Solution 3-just go with the flow (1:2)

Advantage: I can decide when I should study anytime I want

Disadvantage: time management is still bad (problem is still not solve), might make me not prepare for final exam.

After doing my analyzing, I decided to chose solution 2 as my solution because I still can concentrate on my study and other activity if I have prepare timetable for my study and as long as I follow the timetable.

Day six : Bazaar ramadhan

Hey guys. i just got back from my TQM class at 6pm. My stomact doesn't feel good shows that i need some food. Suddenly my housemate called, invited me to go to pasar ramadhan to buy some food for break fast with him. We know that we are late plus its always traffic jamm at Putrajaya when ramadhan is coming. So we are rocketed to go to Putrajaya since we are late enough. Finally, we are not that late and still got time to buy some foods for break fast.

and actually i'm using metaphor in this blog.
