The Meaning of Life by a  secretary of English Literature Department

The Meaning of life  becomes a controversial issue in our society. In biology, life means moving, breathing, growing and reproducing. Furthermore, there are alot of theologians trying to give their opinion about the issue. They write their interpretations  in their books. On the other side,  Albert Camus quotes “you will never be happy if you continue to search for what happiness consists of. You will never live if you are looking for the meaning of life”. From those statements, it is clear that everyone has their own interpratetion related to the meaning of their life. consequently, it is important to us to find more conciderations about the issue in order that we can interprate it wisely. Learning from an inspirative figure is an important way to do.

She is Indriyati hadiningrum, the 39-year-old woman working  as a lecturer at Jenderal Soedirman University. Teaching for almost everyday in a week, she understands her students’ characteristic well.

Book review

MAWAR MERAH MOSAIK NOVEL by Luna Torashyngu `
The Mawar Merah Mosaik tells the story of Riva, a girl who is interested in her college friend, a new student named Elsa. Either Elsa or Riva has very different character. Riva is very easygoing, but Elsa prefer to secluded and read the book. However Elsa’s character precisely attracted Riva's attention. Riva felt that Elsa had a mystery, and she wanted to know about that mystery. Although it was initially difficult, Riva finally become close with Elsa. not only Riva, but also Arga who were attracted by Elsa. It has made Riva dizzy. She was more dizzy knowing that Elsa rarely go to collage. And it was getting worse as soon as Saka's presence, her cousin who is a member of International Police. Saka suspect  Elsa as an international assassin who is being searched world wide. Of course Riva did not believe in saka's judgment. It is impossible that Elsa which has a calm and soft hearted was an assassin. Without conscious, Riva stuck in a conflict and massive conspiracy that has lasted for more than 10 years. Saka reinforces the nation that she is Mawar Merah. Mawar Merah is a member of the organization  of fund-SPIKE-assassin in the world. She did it because she wanted revenge for the death of her father.And it turns out Saka the alleged indeed, Elsa is Mawar Merah, whose real name Rachel Watson Sarasvati. It was known when Rachel fight with Oleg, one of the assassin, in the campus. Rachel realizes all of this has been set by SPIKE therefore she instantly fought with Jonathan Keisp-SPIKE-chairman of the organization that led to the alleged Mawar Merah have been Killed in the battle.
I think this book has a lot of mystery. It makes readers wonder whether or not they read the book until the end. And something that make this book interesting is a killer figure is a woman who is still very young and too pretty. Actually, this book has three series. mawar merah is first series, the second and third book are mawar merah metamorfosis and mawar merah matahari. unfortunately, I have not read the second and third series of the book. I hope i can read it as soon as possible.
Although the theme of this novel is action, there are some parts that I think is quite touching ,when Rachel or Elsa find her mother's diary which contains stories of his mother when her mother was young once , and when it began to unfold Elsa real identity is a very dangerous killer.

POETRY

I've lost you
The sun seems as if it doesn't have light again
Feels so cloudy..
Not as warm as before
So cold..
The air seems as though it doesn't contain oxygen
So empty..
This chest was so crowded
It was so crowded
In this body 
It was like desease that is not going undiagnosed
It's too painful 
This all because ..
I had lost you..





About that poetry

As seen above, This poetry describes the feeling of someone who lost the very valuable thing in her life. she used to need and  dependent on it very much. And when she lost such thing, she thought her life has changed
