I finished reading this book –Astrophysics for People in a Hurry by Neil deGrasse Tyson 2 months ago, just after Cosmos by Carl Sagan. I’ve been wanting to write something about the perspective that these two books share, but I think it’s already a two-years plan by now, after several tries only ended up just as another draft, piling up and never published. In the meantime, this pandemic lockdown situation gives me extra spare time to use, and I feel bad if I’m not using it to finally post something about this one.

Tentang rencana yang masih jadi wacana
Tentang inginnya impian seberhana tapi masih sederhana
Tentang asmarandana karena tak kunjung beranjangsana

Paradox of Learning

The whole point of this writing is to talk about my experience when I was learning extensively about subjects I’m passionate at, while ignoring the conventional, obligatory campus’ credit system. I’m a social student, yes, but that doesn’t stop me to study computer programming, design, film theory, and variety of other subjects like astrophysics, economy, politics, or even a little about engineering. Of course, that doesn’t necessarily make me an expert in those fields, but that’s enough to make me keep wondering of how vast the mystery this universe has, how amazing life and exciting people are, and keep me feel alive (?)
