I think I know what’s in villain’s mind

So I just finished watching Disney’s Descendants few days ago. Honestly, I really really really want to watch it since Eid al-Fitr holiday, but I have to prepare for Prajab. I’ll write about Prajab later after Brigade Energy Camp since I’ve got much much happy moments there :D

Back to the Disney’s Descendants. I hate antagonist characters in almost every movie, so I thought that I wouldn’t like the characters since they’re Disney’s antagonists’ descendants. But the story was promising! Then I fell in love with every evil’s descendants in this film. Should I tell you my favorite descendant? My favorite is Evie, The Evil Queen’s daughter. And please don’t forget this movie soundtracks, very ear-catching and playful. My personal favorites are Evil Like Me and Rotten To The Core. I know much synonyms for ‘evil’ after listening to the songs.

The Twits

Jika seseorang memiliki pikiran-pikiran jelek, maka itu akan terlihat di wajahnya. Dan ketika orang itu memiliki pikiran-pikiran jelek setiap hari, setiap minggu, setiap tahun, maka mukanya menjadi makin jelek dan terus makin jelek sampai wajahnya menjadi sangat jelek sehingga kau tidak akan tahan melihatnya.

Seseorang yang memiliki pikiran bagus tidak akan menjadi jelek. Kau bisa saja memiliki hidung besar, mulut mencong, dagu berlipat, dan gigi tonggos, tapi jika kau punya pikiran-pikiran yang bagus pikiran-pikiran itu akan bersinar di wajahmu seperti sinar matahari dan kau akan selalu terlihat cantik.

Childhood Quirks

Do you remember your childhood quirks? Well, I have so many strange quirks as a kid. Correction, as a teen, too. And I still develop some until now. After unintentionally read an article about Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, I was shock to know that some of my quirks may lead into OCD. These are some that I still remember. Some make me laugh because it was totally nonsense when I think about it now. Continue reading

People’s Name

Dale Carnegie, the author of How to Win Friends and Influence People, believed that using someone’s name was incredibly important. He said that a person’s name is the sweetest sound in any language for that person. A name is the core part of our identity, and so hearing it validates our existence, which makes us much more inclined to feel positively about the person who validated us.

But using a title, or form of address can also have strong effects, according to the as ifprinciple. The idea is that if you act like a certain type of person, you will become that person, it’s a bit like a self fulfilling prophecy. To use this to influence others, you can refer to them as what you want them to be, so they will start thinking of themselves this way. This can be as simple as calling an acquaintance you want to be closer to “friend,” or “mate” whenever you see them, or referring to someone you want to work for as “boss.” But be warned: this can come off as very corny.

When I read this post for the first time, my body’s tingling. That’s the reason why I prefer to be called by my name instead of ‘you’. For me, to call a person with ‘you’ or ‘kamu’ in Bahasa is kind of rude. Just use the person’s name, please? But if you’re just an acquaintance, call them with Mr./Ms./Mrs. or ‘Bapak/Ibu/Mbak/Mas/Bang’ whatever. Because to call an acquaintance  without honorific seems wrong, especially if you are younger.

Well,  I’m not doing it to influence people. I just think it’s the polite way to recognize people. Just don’t overdo it.
