On day one we were gathered and was divided into a small chunk of groups. After that we were briefed about the rules and the should and shouldn't of Pesantren Daruut Tauhid. It was quite an exhausting day because it was my first time doing so much prayer. Though it was exhausting, i still manage to joke around and took a photo of me being displayed in the cctv
After i went straight to bed
On second day i was woken up for sahur and it wasn't very pleasant for me because i had so little sleep and was still eager to go to bed again. But miserably there wasn't time so i have go get ready and get my usual speech about Ramadhan. After that we went to the football field and took a class photo
I also took a photo with few of my other classrooms friends
On the third day, it was a ourtime to go home so after a short story and lesson, we packed our bags and went home. Coincidentally, my house was a few blocks away so i decided to go home on foot.
I will never forget the amazing sanlat memories.

Human has existed centuries before present times. But nature has existed longer before.
Us humans are unaware that nature has been part, if not the cause of human history. Either humanity's salvation, or damnation, nature has played a huge role on how humans back then becomes humans of the present. We are ignorant and egoistic to think that everything happens solely because of human work and intellegence , when instead nature has given chance and experience to help humans achieve their goals numerous times that we humans lost count.
We have a lot to learn.
I am a highscholl student in city called Bandung, in a country crunched between two continents. A tropical country in which variety of wildlife prospers, Indonesia. I am also a member of an explorer's organisation named after a shadow puppet that gained his power by learning from nature, Jamadagni.
To live up to the name Jamadagni, i went on various explorations, in which i came up with a single conclusion, "You will never beat nature, you will only find a way to be at peace with nature, and learn to appreciate it".
We can learn that nature will find away to create not only chaos and anger but can also peace and joy. This means that what ever we do or have done, will have it's results. If say, a bad deed have been done, you'll get what you deserve. Same goes to good deeds, you get what you give.
Nature has provide us with life, but what we gave back is death and destruction. What this cause is an imbalance situation where nature is slowly disintergrating. But as we know, nature will find a way to create a balance situation that may be done by human extinction. That being said, human haven't understand that we are an egg on top of a horn. We are fragile, and we rely on nature to keep us alive. Sadly, humans are stubborn and egosentrical beings as we often think that we rule nature and that nature is ours to control when it's not. Protect nature and nature will protect you back.
Nature gives the best lesson on life. We are the students, not teachers. We are the owned, not the owners. We are the needy, not givers. Nature teaches us humilty, a lesson that every human must learn. We are humble creatures against nature. Humans are nothing compared to nature.
Though chaotic sometimes, there's beauty in nature. The chaos, the untouched part of it is mesmerizing and captivating. It is the wonders of the world. We are obligated to protect it. But as said before, humans can be very egosentrical. Many things can be learnt from the beauty of nature, but if destroyed, we are unable to learn from it again. We cannot replicate the raw beauty of nature in anyway. There is no rebuilding or reshaping that can be done to come near as nature's beauty. Nature's beauty can only be preserved, and it's our job to do so.
To conclude everything. Humans need to remember that everything has feedbacks. We cannot do everything as we pleased, because we are only humble guests in a mansion. We have to respect the rules there and if not, we have to face the consequences whether we like it or not. We have to be humble, respectful, well-managed, well-behaved and open-minded humans and if else, nature will give us a painful lesson.
Be a decent human, respect nature.

My unforgettable moment was the first time a went to Jogja with my schoolmates
It was about two years ago when i was still an 8th grader.
Allow me to explain
RINDAM, or more commonly known as LKS (Student Leadership Training) was held on 18th October. It was a 3 day programme. During that programme we we're taught many life skills. One of the most emphasized lesson is the act to be more discipline. It's a very important life skill and i don't mind learning that.
The way the lesson was handed to us is not quite correct. Not that i disliked being yelled at, i am quite capable of handling the sound that goes through my head. It's just the way our "teachers" taught. Many contradictory values and unspecified field of lesson also hinder and quite almost erased the lesson itself.
For example, we are forced to have our haircut without any excuses, even though your hair is short enough. I understand that short hair is often seen as being discipline, but that doesn't mean we can't look good. Having short hair THAT YOU DESIRE is okay. They should not have forced us to have our hair stripped away from us in such ill-mannered way. We don't have to look like a soldier in order to be disciplined, right.
But enough with the complaints, let's just talk about what i gained from there. What i've learned is that you cannot disobey rules. We have to follow rules. Also do not be disrespectful, we are guests in this world and should be disrespectful towards other guests.
Still i had quite a great experience with my friends there, i hope to see a better programme for student leadership training in the upcoming years
