In this post, as the title says, I wanna give my gratitude to everyone who accompany me through the months of high school. It will be nothing without all of you, classes would probably be boring and it'll mean nothing much to me.
Who accompanied me? They are Azmy, Alfath, Indika, and Razi. They DID NOT, I repeat, they did not teach (or invited) me how to skip classes. But they taught me how to have fun.

I'm gonna make a short story long. Why? Because basically all I did was playing games, and more games.
First of all, since I didn't have to do the short semester, me and my friends decided to have a sleepover at a friend's house. There were 8 of us in total and we stayed for a day, doing nothing but play some games and actually record some video (like gameplay video and such). The games we played there were CS:GO, H1Z1: KOTK, and the Resident Evil 7 Demo (and recorded it). This was done on the first Monday of the holiday.
After that, it's back to my "Eat-Game-Sleep" holiday routine (which I have to admit, is pretty boring and that's what other people told me but there's nothing else I can do). I played CS:GO with my friends like usual. The game's basically a FPS (First-Person Shooter) if I haven't told you. It requires "skill" unlike Call Of Doodee imo, but who am I to judge.
Then, after getting bored of it, I played and finished the game Life is Strange, which is my favourite game of all time (after realising it of course) and I wish Square Enix make the 2nd Season. And I did say finished the game because I got 100% completion on all of the Steam Achievements. Life is Strange is like a Telltale game, it's a five episode game, your choices in the game matter, and the story is, well, I can use the word "unexpectable" or "amazing", but the right one is definetly "mindblowing", just like what the reviewers said. The choices I made in the game though, I doubted it and I wanna restart, but then I realize, "These are your choices, they're made, why don't you just accept it?" and it made me don't want to watch other people's gameplay or their choices for the ending. I even made a short movie of the first episode, it's right here, be sure to click it and hit that subscribe button (self-promotion lelele).
What did I do after that? I played and finished (again) another game, which is The Walking Dead Season One and it's DLC the "400 Days". It's pretty much like Life is Strange since it's actually a Telltale-made game and it's great, but it still don't beat my fav game (but I'm buying the 3 other games they made). The game is like the TV series, um, The Walking Dead, being made into a game where a lot of your choices matter ('cause once again, it's a Telltale). 100% completion like before, making it the second perfect game on my Steam.
The only two "story-rich" game I looked forward to complete was done, back to CS:GO, and I played three NFS game, which are Undercover, Hot Pursuit, and Shift. So basically, I didn't go out after the sleepover. Well actually I met some friends one day, I just don't remember when that is in my "holiday" by the time I wrote this. The holiday was fun (if "fun" means playing games alone until you feel like dying, then yes it is, I just wanna make a good impression by saying it was fun).
Well that's what I did in my holidays, a good time writing it, This is Riz, and I'm out. :DDD

So, my unforgetable experience actually happened on September the 10th, which is the day that Megantara take place.
Why? Because there's so much things that is new and interesting for me. Well of course, the parade long walk wasn't really interesting nor new, but it's part of the event so probably that's the only thing that is not so unforgetable.
What's new and interesting? It is the first culture festival (I'd like to call it a concert for the last part of the show) that I actually enjoyed because when my junior high held one, it wasn't as interesting. For Megantara, I'm still at the fest until the end of it. I also got to met my friends from my CS:GO team for the first time and got to know them quite well. Besides them, I also met my friends from Hardcore Gamer Group at Hokben BEC (so I didn't actually watch the whole show, but I only skip the minor performances because of the many meetups happened that day) but I had to leave early so the gates of Megantara won't shut on me.
Before the Hardcore Gamer Group meetup, I bought myself some Razer gears (so that's new as well) since the meetup happened in the same building that i bought the Razers.
What's a Razer? It's just a gaming gear product that sells everything overpriced but it has good quality.
After I got back to Megantara, I rejoin my CS:GO mates and we were in for a long time of waiting. Then there's the fashion show with the results as early as the judge decided, there's a wayang show and other performances which I quite enjoy but that really wasn't what the audience were there for. What the audience anticipated were either Mr. Ridwan Kamil, The Changcuters, or RAN which they (including me) had to wait for quite some time to see the three guest stars.
And finally, Mr. Ridwan Kamil came onto the stage as the fashion show winner announcer with his well-known style of speaking. When The Changcuters were on the stage and brought some songs, the crowd really went wild even though it's already night but maybe it's because their wait had been paid off. With RAN, it wasn't really as wild as The Changcuters because the different genre of music, but you know people like to sing to artist they like. And those atmospheres were totally new for me which is why it's unforgetable.
After everyone went home from Megantara, my friends and I played some more CS:GO just like we usually do on weekends.
Megantara, most of the people in Bandung have heard of it. It is the culture festival that SMAN 3 Bandung proudly presents in 2016. In previous years, we have Matswapati in 2014 and Gamarvani in 2015 which all took place in Lapangan Bali, so did Megantara.
About the main performer, in Matswapati we have Glenn Fredly as an MC, in Gamarvani we have HiVi and Adera, and for this year we have The Changcuters and RAN (big events need big guest star right?). My junior highschool also performs there as the opening performer which is Rampak Kendang Darul Hikam, I was also part of it but since I the 9th grader I am not a member anymore but still getting in touch with the others.
There is also a fashion show with the theme of Nusantara, so each class sent 3 people to participate (otherwise a penalty will be given) and each of them will have a province to represent but I don't really know how which person got which province because I'm not one of the committee.
There are plenty of foodstands and foodtrucks there so you don't die in hunger or exhaust because you are not allowed to bring any food or drink to the festival. The foodstands took a theme of Indonesia's Nusantara, so basically the foodstands offers culinary from all over Indonesia (sadly I didn't get a taste because I was running out of money).
And you can enjoy all of that with only a Rp35.000 one-time entrance. But by the time you read this, the fest is already done (Why are you so late at informing I wanna see RAN on stage omg). I actually about to make a vlog and upload it, but my phone ran out of battery so I can't even take a picture.
So that's it from me guys, thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy. Until next time! :D

I’ve decided to put this down to writing, since I’m not sure anyone else has experienced this. If anyone has, please get in touch ASAP, since this is getting worrying.
A few weeks ago, I’d started experiencing fuzzy vision. I’d be doing whatever, eating, writing, be on my bike, and my vision would get all blurry and sometimes I even fell down… I decided not to tell anyone. It was no use worrying them, I was probably just tired.
These started getting more and more regular. Now strange shapes had started to dance around like shadows cast by a fire, contorting into snarling, disturbing faces. They formed into shapes, a hanged man, a woman with no eyes, a dog with its belly ripped open, a small child with it’s wrists cut, lying on the ground… I closed my eyes when it got too disturbing, but I could somehow still see the visions in my head.
I decided to get it to stop. I contacted a so-called paranormal expert on the Internet and waited for a reply. He said to meet him the next day.
That night, I had the worst bout of all of them so far. I started sweating uncontrollably and felt as if darks clouds were closing in on me, the blue gap between them slowly fading and giving way to darkness. Then I had a series of violent spasms, and saw a black figure on the ceiling. He was not deformed and rapidly changing shapes like the others, he clearly had the figure of a hunched back man. As he slowly came into focus I could start seeing his features, and in colour too. He was an old man with gouged eyes, and two holes in his hand. The wounds looked fresh, and a drop of blood even trickled down and hit my bedsheets.
The man beckoned to me. “Come forth, and see the truth.” I got out of my bed and he grasped my hand and we flew out the window. He showed me the UK, then we flew higher and he showed me the world. At this point I could no longer breath and choked to death.
The last words I ever heard haunt me to this day. Dark, disturbing words. Full of an unknown evil power.
“Oh bugger, you guys don’t breathe in space do you”

Whaddup guys I'm back! :D
And today I'll be talking about an event (It's pretty much a tragedy) in the past.
When did it happen? I think all of you reading di post can read the title, but yes it happened in January 28th, 1986. Now, if you have read my previous post about my intro, what's really special (for me) about this date is that it is my birthdate ^-^ (15 years before I was born to be exact) but let's talk about the subject.
What really happened in January 28, 1986 is the Space Shuttle Challenger Disaster. Why did I pick this subject out of anything else? Well, (once again) it's my birthdate so it have something I can relate (I'm definetly lying there), but also because it is included in Astronomy as my favourite subject.
So in the 28th of January 1986, The Space Shuttle Challenger Disaster occured when the NASA Space Shuttle orbiter Challenger (OV-099) (mission STS-51-L) broke apart 73 seconds into its flight with its seven crew member on board. Who are those people? There's five NASA astronouts and two Payload Specialists. They are Francis R. Scoobe, Michael J. Smith, Ronald McNair, Ellison Onizuka, Judith Resnik, Gregory Jarvis, and Christa McAuliffe (you probably never heard of them, but well... I gotta tell you the facts.)
The spacecraft disintegrated over the Atlantic Ocean, off the coast of Cape Canaveral, Florida, at 11:39 EST (16:39 UTC). Soon after the disaster, President Ronald Reegan gave a speech with a duration of 4 minutes long which became a song prequel by creating a montage of the speech, with the title of "January 28, 1986" by Owl City in their album All Things Bright and Beautiful. The song that the speech prequeled is "Galaxies" also by Owl City in the same album.
After the disaster, they investigated the issue and found out that the disintegration of the vehicle began after an O-ring seal in its right solid rocket booster (SRB) failed at liftoff. The O-ring was not designed to fly under unusually cold conditions as in this launch. The formation of the Rogers Commission, a special commission appointed by Unites States President Ronald Reagan to investigate the accident. The disaster resulted in a 32-month hiatus in the shuttle program. It also caused the Air Force decided to cancel its plans to use the Shuttle for classified military satellite launches from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California, deciding to use the Titan IV instead.
The witnesses (watching the liftoff and incident live) are approximately 17% of Americans. Why? because of the presence of Payload Specialist Christa McAuliffe, who would have been the first teacher in space. The news of the incident spreaded quickly, one study reported that 85% of Americans surveyed had heard the news within an hour of the accident.
Is there a good effect after the incident? Yes. Now NASA has become more accurate and precise on their work to prevent this from happening in future rocket projects (or in fact any other things they're working on)
