"Take care of the land…someday you’ll be part of it"

Some people just said this country sucks. Because the native told so, too. Negative, this mindset only bring this country down. We can just do some little good things for our country and not just complain why the government or other people sucks. We realize we always forget the rules that had been made by the government and will slowly get it better. Sure, rules and creativity are definitely in different path, but there’s nothing possible for them going together.
However, there’s something many other foreigner really appreciate here actually. Freedom. And we should count it as a good point. At least we have some positive traits.
And once more, rules and freedom are absolutely in opposite way, but at least we can do balance.

Too many women throw themselves into romance because they’re afraid of being single, then start making compromises and losing their identity. I won’t do that.

Face Reading (Physiognomy): Smiles and Teeth

The art of determining character or personal qualities from the features or form of the body, especially the face. 

SMILES:

  • A. Natural Smile (lips relaxed, full smile, teeth, but no gums showing): You are comfortable with your sensuality, neither flaunting nor hiding it. You also feel comfortable with your own sexuality.
  • B. Gums Showing (gums show in a full smile): This indicates that you believe you are desirable for what you can give and do. You may be inappropriate in how much you give, finding it difficult to accept that you are lovable for just being yourself. You try to earn love through what you give and do for others. You may be one of those people who wants to give everyone a Christmas present whether you receive one in return or not. 
  • C. Stretched Tight Smile (upper lip tight across teeth): This “overly sincere” smile is a mask that hides the owner’s true agenda with an attempt to communicate an unfelt sincerity or caring. It is a deception flashed to make an impression.
  • D. Pursed/Kissy Lips (lips are naturally close together when smiling): You are communicating that you want to maintain your distance. Your smile says, “I’m being polite, don’t rush me. It takes time to get to know me, but don’t stop trying”
  • E. Crooked Smile (one side higher than the other): You have a practiced performance smile that is designed to make a good impression but doesn’t reflect your true feelings. You may just be “smiling for the camera.”
TEETH:
  • F. Even Teeth (all teeth are same length): You have a logical approach and learn life’s lessons quickly. You make decisions with poise and self-confidence. (America’s obsession with straight teeth pays off)
  • G. Gap Between Front Teeth (space b/t teeth): You are willing to take risks even when you are not sure of the outcome. In fact, given a choice between playing it safe or going for it, you will choose to go for it. The larger the gap, the stronger the trait. Your friends may see you as something of a daredevil because you make intuitive decisions in the moment and don’t hide from danger. (Well, this explains my adventurous teacher who is almost always in a cast.)
  • H. Big Front Teeth (much larger than other teeth): Once you finally make your mind, that’s it! You can be stubborn as a mule and someone has to show you that you are wrong before you will change your mind. You have the ability to hang on to your position when faced with opposition.
  • Small Even Teeth (no image): Simply indicates a quick learner, -or- a person who may shy away from leadership positions.
  • I. Crooked Teeth (especially bottom teeth): You see both sides of every issue. While you might be good at debate, you hate to be wrong, so you will often double check your facts before proceeding. Your challenge is that you hold yourself to impossibly high standards, weighing every decision. (I know a family who’s four kids are all involved in Speech and Debate… and their bottom teeth are very crooked)
  • J. Buck Teeth (front teeth protrude/stick out): You have had to overcome the shyness you felt as a child when you would lean over backwards to please and try to get along with others. Your challenge is that you have had to struggle to become more outgoing.

Jokowi Nyalon 2014

Gw bukan orang yang tau politik, sok tau juga enggak, mungkin saking pragmatisnya. Bukan juga orang yang kuat dengan prinsip dan komitmennya. Intinya disini cuma berpendapat tentang pencalonan Bapak Jokowi sebagai presiden. Menurut gw terlalu terburu-buru. Kenapa gak diselesaikan dulu masa jabatannya sebagai gubernur sampai tuntas, habis itu beliau bisa terima tawaran dari Ibu Mega untuk pemilu tahap berikutnya. Bukan apa-apa, tapi beliau sudah berkomitmen untuk Jakarta selama masa jabatannya itu. Nah, kaya waktu di Solo dulu, beliau juga gak tuntas masa jabatan. Oke kalaupun beliau bagus kinerjanya, mungkin tetap ada politik yang bekerja di belakangnya. Jadi pendapat gw disini, meskipun gw juga sebenernya dukung Jokowi nyapres pada akhirnya, tapi melihat tentang sejarah batu loncatannya, gw lebih kontra dalam masalah pencalonan presiden beliau terlalu dini.
