My Favorite Subjects At School And Why I Loved Them

I had great times at elementary and junior high school. It felt like time flew so fast. Unlike those times, I didn't enjoy my high school times. However, I had some favorite subjects regardless of which level I studied in. Here are my favorite subjects at school and why I loved them.

Yes. I fell in love with science since in elementary school. It started when I read the text book about our planet and its surrounding. Planet Earth, the solar system, constellation and so on. I remember I went outside one night and pointed to the sky and said, "I know that. That's the Southern Cross," as my father accompanied me.

Not only astronomy, I liked biology as well. I was astonished to know how great those scientists were. I hardly imagined how they could describe organisms very specific with simple and limited tools. I admired how detail they drew and wrote their findings. They even collected their research into thick books!

Although I was not (and I'm still not) good at physics and chemistry but I do respect and admire them up to now.

If I could, I would learn many foreign languages at school. But, too bad, there was only English.
I love English so much. I like to read books in English as well as watching TV program in English. I'm not an expert, I'm just an amateur.

Back to my times at school, I always got good grade for English from Junior High to High School. English wasn't taught in elementary schools at the moment. To me, English was full of fun. While many of my class mates had difficulty with it, I never had bad experience with English but some killer teachers.

I fell in love with history, especially world history, when I studied it in High School. I think it was the teacher who drove me that. She taught the subject very interestingly. I never had such teacher before. She explained the World War I and II thoroughly. She opened my mind that the reason over something is important and that's the key to every situation in this world.

I think the biggest I got from my history teacher is the understanding. Nothing stands alone in this world. There must be some connections between one event and the others.

Well, those are my favorite subjects at school and why I loved them. Do you like science, English and history too? Or do you have other subjects that you loved at school? Please, do tell me.

Teaching Kids About Hajj, Not Only Fun But Also Surprising!

Early in this September, my sons, Mr. Inventor and The Professor went on a hajj teaching ritual class. It is an annual class conducted by the regional teaching department. There were more than one thousand students from15 different elementary schools. It took place at the local square.

This year is special for us because male students had to wear ihram, a clothing of male hajj pilgrims. I was imagining it would be great as kids would learn almost the real hajj would like. The last year class didn't obligate male students to wear ihram, just white clothing.

Surprisingly, Mr. Inventor refused to attend the class.

"I will not go," he said.

"Why not?" I asked.

"I just don't want to." became a problem for me. I needed to find out what caused him not to. Mr. Inventor is 9-year-old now, so I think it is common for such a boy to feel uncomfortable about something new. Perhaps he wanted to look good with the ihram.

I persuaded him to go. I told …

My Siblings And I

It's the three of us. Yes, we are siblings. I'm the middle child. I have an elder sister and a younger brother. Both of them live close to our mom in Jogja. My Sister
It's so funny to remember our childhood. We were, actually, not good siblings. I seemed to always had arguments and fights with my sister. I didn't like her and I think that she didn't like me either. It's understandable as she's only 2 years older than me. My sister and I shared the same room for years. We had a big table in our room for us to study. It was the only thing, I guess, that we agreed to share. The rest were things that we called 'mine' and 'yours'. The next funny thing is I missed my sister once after she left home for college. She had to stay in Solo for her bachelor degree. She returned home once a month or so and that made me felt lonely. Then I started to miss her. And the feeling got bigger when she got married. My sister is a tough person. She lives with…

Beautiful Hijabs From Hidden Pearls [A Review]

Last December I went home to Jogja for a holiday with my family. It was an end-of-semester holiday actually and I spent most of the days with my kids while my husband came later. We stayed at my mom's house which used to be the place I live through my younger years. Coming home and enjoy the atmosphere of romanticism of the past is always wonderful. I took my sons to places I'd like them to see so that they can learn something new. And they would be able to get to know their mom better. I showed them my high school, the local library I used to go, even my elementary school reports.
