[Even if you can't find heaven, heaven, heaven...]
Hands, put your empty hands in mine  
And scars, show me all the scars you hide  
And hey, if your wings are broken  
Please take mine so yours can open too  
Cause I'm gonna stand by you 
Oh, tears make kaleidoscopes in your eyes 
And hurt, I know you're hurting, but so am I 
And love, if your wings are broken  
Borrow mine so yours can open too 
 Cause I'm gonna stand by you
The meaning : 
I'll hold your hands so tight, so don't let go. Faith and trust are what I want you to give me. It's a bound that we create to keep each other safe. 
I won't mind the scars you have, I will accept you for the way you are. 
Love gives itself to heal others so it's okay if you're hurt, I'll give you my love so it will stop hurting. 
The sadness and the hurt you feel, I feel them too, and it's okay because love will heal. I will always be right next to you.
Even if we're breaking down, we can find a way to break through 
Even if we can't find heaven, I'll walk through hell with you Love, you're not alone, cause I'm gonna stand by you  
Even if we can't find heaven, I'm gonna stand by you 
Even if we can't find heaven, I'll walk through hell with you  
Love, you're not alone, cause I'm gonna stand by you
The meaning :
Although we desperate and feel hopeless in any problems in life, we'll fix them together.
Although there's such hard times for us, I'm not gonna run away, I'm not afraid, we'll pass them together.
Don't feel lonely, you have me by your side.
Yeah, you're all I never knew I needed  
And the heart, sometimes it's unclear why it's beating  
And love, if your wings are broken 
We can brave through those emotions too  
Cause I'm gonna stand by you  
Oh, truth, I guess truth is what you believe in 
And faith, I think faith is helping reason  
No, no, no, love, if your wings are broken 
Borrow mine so yours can open too 
Cause I'm gonna stand by you
The meaning :
I never knew you were the one I wanted to give my love to.
We never know what we'll achieve next or what we are gonna be or what's waiting for us in the future, because life is unpredictable.
But we have to be brave and face it together. Keep trusting each other will help us solve any problems toward us.
Even if we're breaking down, we can find a way to break through 
Even if we can't find heaven, I'll walk through hell with you 
Love, you're not alone, cause I'm gonna stand by you 
Even if we can't find heaven, I'm gonna stand by you 
Even if we can't find heaven, I'll walk through hell with you 
Love, you're not alone, cause I'm gonna stand by you

I'll be your eyes till yours can't shine 
And I'll be your arms, I'll be your steady satellite  
And when you can't rise, well, I'll crawl with you on hands and knees Cause I... [I'm gonna stand by you]

The meaning :
 I'll always be with you till the end of time, until the death makes us apart. My arms are open to hold you everytime you're about to break down or cry. If you feel like you couldn't rise on your own, I'll help you with everything I have.

Even if we're breaking down [hey]we can find a way to break through [come on]  
Even if we can't find heaven, I'll walk through hell with you 
Love, you're not alone, cause I'm gonna stand by you  

Even if we can't find heaven, I'm gonna stand by you 
Even if we can't find heaven, I'll walk through hell with you 
Love, you're not alone, cause I'm gonna stand by you 
Love, you're not alone, no, I'm gonna stand by you [Even if we can't find heaven, heaven, heaven...] I'm gonna stand by you

The Morals :
This song tells us about love. This song proves that there's so many things love can do. That's why we need love around us to keep us alive. This song tells about the love we share with other people. Love is the reason when you care about others. Love always accepts anyone for who they are and never tries to change them. Love finds simplicity in a complexity. Love can heal the broken heart and make everyone smile. Love stops the pain. Love is always there even in the hard times. It keeps you walking through the darkness to find a little light. Love never sees the flaws in anyone, it always sees perfection in everyone. Love means sacrificing in any ways to keep the lovely ones safe. That's why, everytime we feel so hopeless, useless and lonely, we're never alone because there must be someone who loves us so much. And this love never dies. It lasts a lifetime. Love will stand by you, through it all, to the very end! So give so much love in every steps you walk for anybody because it will keep everyone safe and warm.

Dewa Athena

Dewa Athena

Dewa Athena was a sport competition that was done at Bali field for 10th grade and 11th grade SMA Negeri 3 Bandung. Teammates were our own classmates; so everyone fought to win matches/games for their own class. Students in one class were divided into different teams for different games, and I was in a volleyball team.

On the first day, 10th of March 2016, I went to Bali field at 7 am. All of the students who would play the games wore jerseys which every class had made before so every class had their unique jerseys on their own. We ran together around our school and Bali field. After that, we started the games. It was so fun and healthy!

I played the first match of volleyball that day in evening. It was too late so almost everyone had gone home because they thought there wouldn't be any games left. We needed 6 players in each team who were three boys and three girls and my team had only 4 players who were 3 boys and 1 girl, and the girl was me! In panic, I found Pungki and asked her to help my team, and she said yes. We were almost disqualified. In relief, our opponent only had 5 players too and we agreed to start the game although we should have had 6 players. Our opponent was X-5. It was such a good game. I was so happy because I could play volleyball after such a long time ago. So lucky, my class team won the game yayy!

The next day, I went to Bali field again. In the afternoon, there was another match of volleyball. I and my volleyball teammates had to win the game against XI-4. It was scary at first because they were one year older! But we played it very well and won. We were so happy because we could make it to semis. 

The third game was on 5th of March 2016 (Saturday). But unfortunately, I and Pungki couldn't play because we had to go to another city to have MUBES. So sad to hear from our teammates that we lost the game. But I didn't feel sad for too long and I still loved volleyball. I wanted to practice more so I would be better at playing volleyball.

Education to Build a Bettter Future

Education to Build a Better Future

            Education is the important need of human beings. Our background doesn’t matter—everyone needs to be educated. Education makes people able to gain knowledge of the world around and change it into something way better in the future. But first of all, do we have a good education system?

            Education is base of life. The system of education is ways how the education works. A good education system will lead people to be better and successful which means it will help making our world better too. The education system gets developed every time. This world tries to have a best education system for changing the world.

            Nowadays, we can see the education system in our school life. Is the system already good enough? Students are forced to wake up really early and sit for 7 hours in class and get all the theories of 4 until 6 subjects or have 3 exams and still do their homework at home each day from Monday to Saturday. Some teachers say it’s effective because they don’t waste time. But is it good for our nation’s next generation? Teachers give grades based on the theories of what students write on the exam paper. Students never learn to handle things in reality, in social life. They work hard every day and sometimes skip dinner to finish their homework up to midnight and have a little time to rest. Students who don’t understand never get a chance to ask and are left behind. They are forced to understand by themselves or take the last option; cheat on the exam. Students get bored of getting knowledge because teachers never show the enjoyment of studying. Sometimes they say they are tired but no one does an action to help. Each day, students learn how to hate school—this is the problem.

            The good education system is the system for students to learn and get knowledge for solving cases in real life and still get the enjoyment of studying without getting tired or having no time with their social life. However, teachers have to find a way to make school a fun place. Teachers have to grow the students’ enjoyment of studying and make sure they understand what they learn. Letting students ask and tell their opinions while studying will increase their creativity and confidence. Good students are the ones who can solve real problems and cases in life. They need to think out of the box. Good manners are also needed. Teachers have to teach how students should act to their social in socializing because good people with good education are known by the manners they have. It also prevents students from cheating on exam so the teachers won’t be anxious with how the students get their grades. In future, this stops them in doing bad things such as corruption. 

            The less homework won’t make our next generation more stupid. Also it doesn’t mean teachers have to stop giving homework. Homework is a good way for students to practice what they've learned at school, but don’t let them feel depressed and tired because they have to do a lot of homework and assignments without getting sleep at night. We all know sleeping is the need of human body and it’s the way to keep our body fit and healthy. Some teachers need to stop thinking that playing will decrease their students’ time to study. Playing can help students to solve problems, to be more active and creative in a fun way. Smart teachers will use playing tactic for teaching strategy. The last thing is don’t put too much time for studying. Our brain needs to stop working for a while. It will keep students’ mind fresh if they get a break to rest for 10 until 15 minutes before changing the subject.

In the future we all need a good generation to make the world a better place of living. It starts with a good education system. Let our next generation to have a bright future by getting a right education starts from now on :)

Sumatran Tiger


The Sumatran Tiger (Panthera tigris sumatrae) is a rare tiger subspecies that inhabits the Indonesian island of Sumatra. The habitat is in the lowland to mountain forests.

The Sumatran Tiger is the smallest tiger of the tiger subspecies. This smaller size allows it to move through the forest quickly. Unlike other cats, tigers like to swim. Sumatran Tigers have partial webbing between their toes, which makes them very fast swimmers. Sumatran Tigers also have a white ‘beard’.

It is darker in fur colour and has thicker stripes than the Javan tiger. The Sumatran Tiger's stripes are also thinner than other tigers, assisting with camouflage in the shadows. Stripes tend to disintegrate into spots near their ends, and lines of small dark specks between regular stripes may be found on the back, flanks and hind legs. The frequency of stripes is higher than in other subspecies.

Males have a prominent ruff, which is especially marked in the Sumatran Tiger.


Males weigh 100 to 140 kg and measure 2.2 to 2.55 m in length between the pegs with a greatest length of skull of 295 to 335 mm. Females weigh 75 to 110 kg and measure 215 to 230 cm in length between the pegs with a greatest length of skull of 263 to 294 mm.

The gestation of this Sumatran Tiger is 90–110 days.

Tigers are carnivores and will eat whatever they can catch including fish, crocodiles and fowl, with the most common larger prey being wild pigs and deer. The tiger is a solitary animal. A male will control a territory that contains a number of females. 

Sumatran Tigers mark their territories by spraying scent on trees or bushes. They have a good sense of smell. They use their sense of smell to communicate with each other. They will lift their tails and shoot urine onto bushes, trees, and grass. The tigers smell the urine and their dung is used to mark their ranges. This lets other tigers know that range is occupied. Female tigers also use scent-marking to attract males when they are ready to mate. The scent-marking also helps keep rivals out of each others way. A Tiger will also mark its territory by scratching tree trunks. Sometimes they scratch the ground too. 

Tigers have been poached for their body parts which are used in traditional medicine. Habitat destruction is also a major threat to their survival. There are now estimated to be fewer than 400 Sumatran Tigers left in the wild.

Guggenheim Museum, Bilbao, Spanyol

The Guggenheim Museum Bilbao is a museum of modern and contemporary art, designed by Canadian-American architect Frank Gehry, and located in Bilbao, Basque Country, Spain. The museum was inaugurated on October 18, 1997, by former King Juan Carlos I of Spain. Built alongside the Nervion River, which runs through the city of Bilbao to the Cantabrian Sea, it is one of several museums belonging to the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation and features permanent and visiting exhibits of works by Spanish and international artists.

One of the most admired works of contemporary architecture, the building has been hailed as a "signal moment in the architectural culture", because it represents "one of those rare moments when critics, academics, and the general public were all completely united about something." The museum was the building most frequently named as one of the most important works completed since 1980 in the 2010 World Architecture Survey among architecture experts.
The Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation selected Frank Gehry as the architect, and its director, Thomas Krens, encouraged him to design something daring and innovative. The curves on the exterior of the building were intended to appear random; the architect said that "the randomness of the curves are designed to catch the light". The interior "is designed around a large, light-filled atrium with views of Bilbao's estuary and the surrounding hills of the Basque country". The atrium, which Gehry nicknamed The Flower because of its shape, serves as the organizing center of the museum.

When the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao opened to the public in 1997, it was immediately hailed as one of the world's most spectacular buildings in the style of Deconstructivism (although Gehry does not associate himself with that architectural movement), a masterpiece of the 20th century. Architect Philip Johnson described it as "the greatest building of our time", while critic Calvin Tomkins, in The New Yorker, characterized it as "a fantastic dream ship of undulating form in a cloak of titanium," its brilliantly reflective panels also reminiscent of fish scales. Herbert Muschamp praised its "mercurial brilliance" in The New York Times Magazine. The Independent calls the museum "an astonishing architectural feat". The building inspired other structures of similar design across the globe, such as the Cerritos Millennium Library in Cerritos, California.

The museum is seamlessly integrated into the urban context, unfolding its interconnecting shapes of stone, glass and titanium on a 32,500-square-meter (350,000 sq ft) site along the Nervión River in the old industrial heart of the city; while modest from street level, it is most impressive when viewed from the river. With a total 24,000 m2 (260,000 sq ft), of which 11,000 m2 (120,000 sq ft) are dedicated to exhibition space, it had more exhibition space than the three Guggenheim collections in New York and Venice combined at that time. The 11,000 m2 of exhibition space are distributed over nineteen galleries, ten of which follow a classic orthogonal plan that can be identified from the exterior by their stone finishes. The remaining nine galleries are irregularly shaped and can be identified from the outside by their swirling organic forms and titanium cladding. The largest gallery measures 30 meters wide and 130 meters long (98 ft × 427 ft). In 2005, it housed Richard Serra's monumental installation The Matter of Time, which Robert Hughes dubbed "courageous and sublime". KLM Royal Dutch Airlines donated $1,000,000 towards its construction.
Image result for museum guggenheimThe museum notably houses "large-scale, site-specific works and installations by contemporary artists", such as Richard Serra's 100-meter-long (340 ft) Snake, and displays the work of Basque artists, "as well as housing a selection of works" from the Foundation's modern art collection. In 1997, the museum opened with "The Guggenheim Museums and the Art of This Century", a 300-piece overview of 20th-century art from Cubism to new media art. Most pieces came from the Guggenheim's permanent collection, but the museum also acquired paintings by Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko and Clyfford Still and commissioned new works by Francesco Clemente, Anselm Kiefer, Jenny Holzer and Richard Serra.

The exhibitions change often; the museum generally hosts thematic exhibitions, centered for example on Chinese or Russian art. Traditional paintings and sculptures are a minority compared to installations and electronic forms. The highlight of the collection, and its only permanent exhibit, is The Matter of Time (incorporating an earlier work, Snake), a series of weathering steel sculptures designed by Serra, which is housed in the 130-meter Arcelor Gallery (formerly known as the Fish Gallery but renamed in 2005 for the steel manufacturer that sponsored the project). The collections usually highlight Avant-garde art, 20th century abstraction, and non-objective art. When the museum announced the 2011 exhibition "The Luminous Interval", a show of artwork belonging to Greek businessman Dimitris Daskalopoulos, who is also a museum trustee, this met with criticism of, among other things, too much curatorial power for a serious benefactor. In 2012 David Hockney's exhibition drew over 290,000 visitors to the museum.
