Never Give Up!

Hi, guys! This night I’m in my bedroom, writing this article. Well, long time I never write in my blog.

I had finished my final test for this semester. Of course I’m feeling happy right now. I have work hard in this week. I thank to God because He always bless me until now, especially when I do my final test.

Well, I still afraid to get remedial test. It means, what I have done is nothing. Now I’m still waiting for the announcement, I get remedial test, or not.

I’m not just waiting and do the remedial if I get it. This week, my classmates and I will have an extra lesson. It’s special for 9th grade! My teacher arranged it for prepare us to do the UN. UN is a test made by the government, in my country. UN is made for 6th grade, 9th grade, and 12th grade. If I don’t pass the UN, I won’t go to the senior high school. So, UN is so determine my study.

Maybe for 7th grade and 8th can rest now. Maybe they can go to shopping, picnic, or something that can make this brain take a rest. For 9th grade, now we must study hard to pass the UN.

Sometimes I feel so tired because everyday I must study, study, and study. Sometimes, I feel jealous to my brothers. Everyday, I look them playing online computer games. I seldom look them study. I often bewail because of this! This is so tired. I need a rest.

If I think again, I’m so stupid. Why I must bewail of this? Why I must feel jealous to my brothers? How about my teachers? Until now, I never think about them. I never look from my teachers’ side. I must know that my teacher also tired, but they do that. They do that for her child, 9th graders. Well, I think, teachers are so kind. They sacrificed their time, and their energy, just for their students.

I know my teachers are working hard too. They want us to pass the UN together. Now, I try to never give up. Maybe I feel tired, and need to take a rest, but I won’t give up to study, because my teachers, my friends, and I do this together and also with God. I’m sure; I will pass the UN with my friends if we do that seriously.

In doing everything, don’t give up. Be optimist that you can do that. Do that seriously, and I’m sure, you’ll get the best one. Never give up in doing everything in this life, is the key of success.

Air Gear

Air Gear is an anime that tells about teenagers that play AT. My brothers and I love this anime. The story is good, and the picture is also good. This is about it:

Air Gear is a shonen manga by the mangaka Ito "Oh Great" Ogure. Air Gear is about the life of Itsuki Minami "Ikki", also known as "Baby face" and "Lil (and Little) Crow", and his friends. The story follows their use of Air Trecks, an in-universe invention derived from inline skates. The early parts of the story carry out the introduction of characters that eventually join Ikki. As the story progresses, it focuses on their roles as Storm Riders and their quest to be on the top of the Trophaeum Tower. It won the 2006 Kodansha Manga Award in the shonen category.

The Story is….

Itsuki "Ikki" Minami, is a student and a delinquent. Also known as the "Unbeatable Babyface", Ikki is the leader of the youth gang by the name of "East Side Gunz". Upon his return home, after being humiliated by a Storm Rider team called the Skull Saders, Ikki discovers a secret hidden from him by his benefactors, the Noyamano sisters. The sisters belong to a group of Storm Riders who go by the team name of Sleeping Forest. In the anime, learning the sisters' secret angers him and he steals a pair of Air Trecks, abbreviated as "AT". (In the manga, the sisters give a pair of ATs to him and invite him to skate with them.) Ikki eventually settles his grudge with the Skull Saders, but in the process he receives more than the simple satisfaction of revenge. Determined to experience the sensation of "flight" for as long as he can, Ikki is quickly engaged in the mysterious, irresistible world of Air Treks.

We can see many of characters in Air Gear. Here are the main Characters:

Itsuki Minami (Ikki):

The main protagonist of the story, he was given Air Trecks (in the anime, he took them himself) and soon delved into the world of Storm Riders. Eventually he creates a team, Kogarasumaru. Originally trained to become the Sky King by Sora, he soon finds himself betrayed by Sora and Nike, (Sora's twin brother) who steal his Regalia. Shortly thereafter, Ikki becomes the Storm King and follows the "Hurricane Road."

Kazu Mikura (Kazuma):

A long-time friend of Ikki, Kazu is a friend who's always by his side. He is a speed-type rider who has recently inherited the title of Flame King following the path of the flame road along with Spitfires old AT's. Due to his speed he got the nickname Stealth.


Also a long-time friend of Ikki, Onigiri is a "perverted pig" as called by most. He has an unorthodox riding style, wearing his Air Trecks on his head and riding it upside-down. He has his own unique Road called the Smell Road, which uses an opponent’s sense against them.

Issa Mihotoke (Fats Buccha):

Formerly of the Team Yaō (Night Kings), Buccha was defeated by Ikki and his team was forced to disband. Eventually, he joins Ikki's team as one of the main power riders, making use of his extremely large build and strength.

Akito/Agito (Line Wanijima):

He is the Fang King with a split-personality. Akito is the "light" side while Agito is the "dark" side. They used to work for the police team of "WIND" until inspired by Ikki to leave and join Kogarasumaru after being rescued. Their split-personality changes depending on the side their eye patch is worn. Akito wears his patch on his right eye, Agito on his left. Later, a new personality named Lind emerged. Lind is somewhat like a "big brother" personality. He claims he is the original personality of the body.


Dynasty Warrior 6 Review

Almost everyday I play Dynasty Warrior 6 in Xbox360, it’s because I haven’t PS3 yet, and I don’t want to buy it. This game tells about a war in China a long time ago. I think it’s very interesting. The picture is very good.

This is an opinion from

February 15, 2008 - Dynasty Warrior 6 is the next entry in the now long line of Koei titles that center on the exploits of warriors from ancient East Asian nations. Developed by Omega Force, Dynasty Warriors 6 brings back the familiar button-mashing experience with a few slight modifications that help in certain ways and hurt the game in others. Although this can be a somewhat enjoyable title for people who want some straight-forward button-mashing, there are certainly a few negative things to be said about this warrior romp.

As is the case with the previous Dynasty Warriors titles, this game inhabits the scenarios established most notably by Luo Guanzhong's epic Romance of the Three Kingdoms. Unfortunately, most of the narrative is completely lost when playing.

The story is apparently told by spewing foreign (at least for US gamers) names and locations at you without any real introduction or crash course, meaning that people unfamiliar with the original tale or inexperienced with the franchise will be utterly lost. Even the graciously provided Encyclopedia, which documents an impressive amount of information about the game's historical elements, isn't really part of the proper narrative. Obviously story isn't a primary concern when it comes to this game, but it would have been nice to learn a little something about a great piece of Chinese literature in the process. I understand that the game wants to deliver the perspective of as many characters as possible (to expand the gameplay), but perhaps a focus on a single warrior and his or her involvement in the various wars would not only be intelligible but carry greater weight.

With that said the bulk of the game plays out in the Musou and Free Modes. The only difference between them is that Free Mode lets you replay previous battles with unlocked characters, not only for fun but to gain levels, considering that experience points are cumulative across the board.

Fighting in Dynasty Warriors is pretty much exactly what you'd expect -- and perhaps even simpler than that. You run around and mash away at a single button for the majority of the time. Your warrior of choice can also execute a Power Attack to break an enemy's guard, as well as a devastating Musou Attack that shatters your opponent's ranks. These Musou techniques are pretty fun to use, requiring you to build up energy during combat and save it for the right moment.

New to the series is being able to climb ladders to reach fortress walls, as well as swim through almost any body of water. These aren't necessarily "innovations," but at least the series is attempting to catch up to other games that have offered these freedoms for years. While I found the added movement to be refreshing, Dynasty Warriors is still desperate for better level design. Not only does everything feel horrendously flat and lifeless, but there's almost nothing exciting about hopping from one fort to another.

The other major change made to the title is the introduction of the Renbu system, which alters your character's attacks depending on how long you can chain together kills. Thus, in order to do more damage and perform flashier techniques, you simply have to dispatch as many soldiers as possible in a chain and build up your Renbu Gauge. Initially, I thought this was an interesting idea. My mind soon changed when I realized what was sacrificed in the name of this "innovation": the combos. Most Koei games have at least offered some sort of combat system where you can alternate between "weak" and "strong" techniques to create different combos. As simple as it was, it provided at least a certain layer of control that complicated an otherwise overly simplistic battle system. With Renbu in place, however, you'll spend the entire game pounding away on a single button.

But Dynasty Warriors 6 does have a number of cool things to note. The amount of leveling up you can do is fairly impressive and each character's campaign takes at least a few hours to work through, providing you with quite a lot of content (despite the repetition). The lack of an online co-op mode is once again disappointing, but local co-op is always appreciated.

Unfortunately, my compliments must end there. Dynasty Warriors 6 is not a good looking game, and it performs even worse on the PS3 than on the 360 (even when you opt to install the game data). There is a sickening amount of pop-in, particularly when engaged in two-player mode, and the PS3 can experience some serious slowdown. PS3 multiplayer is almost unplayable.

Lastly, I enjoyed seeing a Challenge Mode available for those who love snagging a high score, but most of the tasks involved were boring. For example, Speed Run involves trying to get to each base on a map as quickly as possible. It wasn't overly enthralling.


Anime, The Pros and Cons

When you heard the word “Anime”, what do you think? Is it a positive things or a negative one? Like every aspect in our life, anime brings not fully positive or negative impact. It depends on the way people sees thing with the different point of view.

For people who see the positive side of anime, they might say that it brings much good influence in teenage life.

The positive influences of anime are:

First, stimulate creativity in teenage mind. Anime can develop their imagination, so, their creativity will increase.

Second, anime is facility to teenagers who likes to draw. I think anime has a good picture especially in drawing human. Maybe anime can be an example to those who like drawing. So, they can improve their talent.

Third, anime can explore the language. Many of anime made in Japan. So, Japanese will be used. From that, we can learn about Japanese language. Well, until now, I never study about Japanese language. I know about Japanese through watching anime, but I still don’t know much about it.

The last, we can learn from the story. I think many of anime have a good story, and of course, we can learn about it.

For people who see the negative side of anime, they might say that it brings much bad influence in teenage life, and maybe, those people might hate anime.

The negative influences of anime are:

First, impolite or informal language used in anime. I think that’s the bad side of anime. We know that anime is for child or teenage. Especially for child, they might say what they have heard. So, it’s dangerous for child.

Second, anime has a pornographic scene. I ever see 1 serial of anime that made for adult, but many teenagers also see that. I think teenage mustn’t see that anime because it’s made for adult. I don’t know what will happen if child see anime that made for adult.

The last, anime brings violence influence to the children. Some anime tells about gangster, war, etc that contains of violence. Children aren’t enough to understand that. If children see the anime like that, not impossible if they do like what they have watched.

We know that anime brings many influence in our life. Negative influence, and positive influence. We can get the positive influence by choose the best or the good anime. We can choose through look at the synopsis in the internet. So we can know about the anime first. If we think that it was good, we can watch it and maybe, recommended it to our friends.

Anime have a good side and bad side. It’s like a knife. It’s good for us if we use it for positive thing. For example, we use it for cooking. Knife also cab brings disaster to human being if we use it for negative thing. For example, we use it for killing someone.

Are you going to use it for cooking, or killing the one that you hate?

Choose Your Life and Live Your Life

That statement is taken from product's slogan. I see it in the street and I think about it. Well, that's a simple slogan but have a big meaning.

As a child, maybe our parents always tell us about what we must do in our life. In fact, that's for our self. As a child, we don't need to choose our life, because our parents will do that for us. But, when we in an adult life, we must choose our life by our self, or maybe, in teenage life, we need to choose our life, but still in the parents control. When we are in an adult life, we will totally choose our life, and as a parent, we must choose the best way for our child.

After we choose our life, we must live our life. What we have choose, we must do that. We can't choose something if we don't want to do that. So, everything you have choose, you must do that with your heart.

Now, I'm a junior high school student. I'm in 9th grade now. 1 year later, I will become a senior high school student. I live in west of Surabaya, but my school is located at the east of Surabaya. I need 45 to go to school.

When I was in 8th grade, I really want to study in where my brothers study. At that time, my brothers are in 10th grade. I want to have a same school with them. Well, I think their school isn't bad. So, I want to study in their school too, but, it change now...

Since I'm in 9th grade, I have many friends. I know that my friends really kind to me. Every time I need them, they will be there to help me. Not only friends, I have many teachers. Teachers will hear my problems when I tell it to them. Of course, they will give the best solution to me. I'm really happy about that.

Because of my teachers, friends, and of course, a good education system, I want to continue my study in where I'm studying now. Moreover, I get 75% discount if I'm school in there.

When I tell about that to my parents, my parents get angry to me and said that I must study in my brothers' school. I thought that my parents will hear my wish, and maybe agree with me. Well, I can't do anything. I can't study without my parents. So, I must follow what my parents said...

Because of that, I think the positive side. What my parents said, maybe it's the best to me. So, I try to trust it and try to receive it. I try to back with my first think, like when I was in 8th grade.

To choose our life isn't easy. What we choose, will bring a big impact to our life. One time we make a wrong decision, it would be fatal. So, don't think it's easy to make a decision. Think one more time that what you have chosen is the best for your self, your family, or your child

Apologize Lyrics

I'm holding on your rope
Got me ten feet off the ground
And I'm hearing what you say,
but I'm just can't make a sound.

You tell me that you need me
then you go and cut me down
but wait
You tell me that you're sorry
didn't think I'd turn around and say

That's too late to apologize, it's too late
I said it's too late to apologize, it's too late

I'd take another chance
take a fall take a shot for you
And I need you like a heart needs a beat
but that's nothing new...

I loved you with the fire red
now it's turning blue
And you say sorry like the angel
heaven let me think was you
but I'm afraid

It's too late to apologize, it's too late
I said it's too late to apologize, it's too late

I said it's too late to apologize, it's too late
I said it's too late to apologize, it's too late

I'm holding on your rope
Got me ten feet off the ground

Forgive and Sorry

Forgive and Sorry are important things.. Forgive and sorry determine our relationship with other people...
Can we forgive all people that make mistakes to us?
God teaches us to forgive each other. He teaches us to forgive our enemy.
But, can we do that easily?

It's not easy. To forgive our enemy is hard. Maybe we can say it easily, but we can't do like what we have said. To forgive all people that made mistakes to us is hard. Sometimes, we can't forgive our friends that made mistakes to us. Then, how can we forgive our enemy??

God forgive all people in this world. People in the world made many mistakes, I'm sure. No one in this world did not make mistakes. But, God always forgive us. He forgives all of our sins. He did not discriminate people. He did not look from our wealth, our face, our ethnic, moreover, from our religion. He forgives us. He forgives people who did not believe in Him. He always takes care of us... Can we do like God do?

To forgive, we must not discriminate people first. Maybe in our life, we still choose our friends with a not important criteria. Such as, from their face, their religion, their weakness, their wealth, their family, etc. Don't to that silly things again from now. Maybe you can do that, but, have you ever think that person's feelings? Imagine that you're in their position... How’s your feeling?
If you did not discriminate people, it will be easier to forgive people...

Second, you must know and always remember that you made many mistakes too. Not only that, you must remember that God always forgives you. So, you must have awareness that you must do what the God's command, like to forgive. If you do that, maybe you'll think again to forgive your friends or not.

Third, if you feel so hard to forgive other people, try to pray. Ask for the God's help. Ask Him to give you strength to forgive. Calm down yourself and think again about what God have done in our life...

The last, think one more time about that event. Think and think again. Maybe, you made mistakes to them before. Introspect yourself. Try not to be emotional...

Don't forgive each other if that just a big lie. Your mouth forgives them, but, your heart not forgives them. It means you're hypocrite...

Do you ever think about the important of "sorry"?

To say sorry is important. We must say "sorry" when we made mistakes to other people. Maybe many of us don't want to say sorry because ashamed, or, we have an opinion, if we say sorry to our friends, they will laugh. Is that true? Maybe it occasionally happens around us, but it did not means that we must stop to say 'sorry'.

Don't worry, if you say sorry and admit your mistakes, God will be happy. He'll happy because you do something good in your life.

In say sorry, same like forgive, we must say it from our heart. Not only from our mouth, but we do that seriously and try hard not to make the same mistakes...

We must admit our mistakes. That's a good things I think. It's better than we must avoid our mistakes. Say sorry if it needs to...

Forgive and Sorry... Those are simple words, but it's hard to do. Easy to say, but, hard to do. Pray to God, ask for His help. He will hear your pray and of course, he will help you. One more, don’t just rely on God, but we must try. Don't rely with own strength, rely on God too. Because, He is the source of our strength.....

Try to forgive all people that made mistakes in your life, and say 'sorry' if we made mistakes to someone. Especially, say 'sorry' to God because we always hurt His heart...

Our Greatest Glory

Our Greatest Glory is Not in Never Falling
In Rising Every Time We Fall

I get that statement from one of my brothers. I really like that statement.

Maybe we always think that never fall is perfect, but, if we are rising every time, so we'll be better than the person that never falls...

Do you believe it?

For example:

I am a student now. Well, as you know, I have many exams in school. Not only exams, but, there are homework, project, quiz, and many else. From that, my teachers took my score. I've got bad score than my friends.

My friends are so smart. They almost have a perfect score in every activity in the school. Not only in the class subject, but, also in school competition. I always sad because I get a bad score and I won't active in the school competition. I won’t active in the school competition because I’m too lazy to do something like that. My parents always angry to me because my score.

I know I must raise my score. I study hard, and... I'm still getting a bad score! But, if it has a different from before, that's good. For example, my first English test got 50. When the second English test, I got 53. Maybe we said, "LOL, 50 and 53 is not different. Those two scores are still BAD!"

50 and 53 still have a different. Although it's just 3 points, but it's still have a different right?
If we can rise every time, we will get a good score right? Maybe, a perfect score! Just a little different is alright. We must study harder than before, and don't forget to pray.

To rise every time is not only in our study at school, but in our career too. Maybe sometimes we can't do the report well, we failed. Just accept it and we must study from that. That's an experience for us. So, when we do a report again, we must not to do our mistakes like before...

So, if we failed to do something, don't do our mistakes that we do before. We must change! But not change become bad but change become better than before...

...That's Our Greatest Glory...

Trust it and change your life...

... Won't Believe This ...

I couldn't believe this. I was very disappointed with my friend. He is my friend since I'm in 7th grade. I know him since I'm in elementary school, but I became his friend since in 7th grade.

I thought that he was forgetting to me. About all of our relation when I'm in 7th grade. Now, he is in Senior High School. He and I are in the different school. I thought, he didn't care anymore about me because we never meet again.

I was confused, angry, and cried because I was very disappointed with him. At that time, almost every day I heard my favorite song. The title is, "Apologize". I very love the lyrics that said,
"I loved you with the fire red, now its turning blue". That is my true feeling about him at that time. But.....

That day and the next day, I'm still disappointed with him. But, when I talk again with him, I thought, "Maybe I must try to trust him". In my heart, I said, "I'm so sorry to think only from one side". I thought that he was changed, but I was wrong. He didn’t change. He still becomes the person that I know.

From this, I learned to always have a positive thinking. I can't look a problem only from one side. I must think about him too. Not only about my feelings. Maybe he has his own opinion. Maybe it's good for him, but not good for me. I was very regret to do something like that.

From now, I make a decision, “No matter what happen, I will think from the positive first. I can't only follow my emotion ".

So, if you think from the positive side, I'm sure you will have a better life. It will make you and your friends have a good relation because you will not have a wrong concept about them so fast. Try to be positive and change your life...

The Real Peace

Hi, Guys! Now, I want to tell you about what am I thinking now. I want to tell you about the real peace in this world. Did you ever think about that?? Let's check it together...

Now, I want to tell you about "Death Note" anime. As you know, in "Death Note", Kira (Light Yagami) has an opinion. His opinion is "if all the criminals are dead, world will be better". That opinion maybe true. But, he killed the criminals with his "book". That's the first time. But, he killed all the people who have a different opinion. But now, let's think. Is that true that peace will be happening if all the criminals are dead...

It looks like, "Oh, it's so good if no criminals anymore!" am I right??

Criminals have a life too. God gives a life for them. God gives them a time to choose. To do something bad, that's their choice. We know, that's a very bad thing. But, we can't judge them with our own opinion. That depends on God. They are dead or not, is in God's hand.

Do you think that a criminal gives a benefit? Look at this story...

"My family was dead. Someone kill them. Of course I'm so sad. I don't have anyone now. I must live with myself. And you know, that person, who killed all of my family, was pledged not guilty. Of course you know about my feeling, right? I'm so angry but I can't do anything else."

What do you think about that story? Do you think the criminals supossed to be killed??

I have 2 opinion about that...

First, criminals are used by God to give me a test. When I get that test, I must stay in God. We can't say, "God, why you killed my family? You're so mean." From this test, we can learn that we must stand firm in God. We musn't be emotional. We can cry, we can be angry, but it is just for a while. God teaches us to forgive others. And of course you know, don't get trapped in the past!

Second, God gives time to that criminals to come back to "His" way. The criminal was pleged not guilty, it means, God gives one more time to them...

So, how about your opinion about the real peace... Do you think that all criminals must be killed? Think about that one more time....

.... About Me ....

I was born on November 18th 1995. My real name is Novita. But I really like "Hikari". Hikari means light. I'm so interest with that word.

I lived in Surabaya, Indonesia. I am a junior high school student right now. I would like to share about my life, and what am I thinking...

I'm interested at drawing, writing, reading and watching. But, I like drawing anime, writing a story in Japanese style, reading comics, and watching anime series. I'm so interested at those things that. I like Japan so much. But, I can't speak Japanese well, and I have never been toJapan.... Maybe sometime, I would like to go there.

All people have a different opinion. Share your opinion about my posts by comment my posts...

I have some experience that I think, that's a good story to tell you.. You can learn from my experiences..and I will also learn about other people's experiences... I think we need to study from others for make ourselves better and better.... In our life, we need to study more and more.... Remember, life is a journey...

Life is a Journey not a Destination

Life is a journey not a destination...

Almost all people in the world believe that there is a life after death. God gives the time for us... We must do a good things when we life. The time when we live will make a different. Our present life is the time to choose our life after death. Go into heaven, or go into hell.

I believe, all people want to go into heaven. Is there any person that wants go into hell?

We must believe that God exists. Maybe many of atheists believe that God doesn't exist. But, it will be better if we believe God exists. If God doesn't exist, so, the life after death doesn't exist. But if God exists, the life after death also exists. If we didn't believe that God exists, and if God really exist, we will go into hell. But if we believe that God exists, and the God doesn't exist, so, are we going to be punished??

Believe in God have many benefits for us.. So, change your life from now.. Let's make a wonderful journey.... We still have time for it....
