NO ELECTRICITY NO LIFE

Assalamualaikum, everyone! First, let me apologize to everyone, especially to Miss. Dini because I late to post my writing. I completely forgot about the deadline, when I realize it's already in April. So, I'm really sorry for this. Well, let's back! Today, I will writing about “I can't imagine without electricity”. Why electricity? Because it's a very important things for me!

In the history, there were many scientists that studied about electricity likes Amphere, Faraday, Coloum and Joseph Priestley. However, Michael Faraday was a scientist that made a big contribution in electricity in found electric current. This invention is the beginnings of the other inventions. I can't imagine what if these scientists had never found electricity. There will be no lights that brighten up the world, there will be no telephone to easily communicate, etc.


Nowadays, humans need electricity to do their activity. For examples, you need smartphone to send a message for someone far away, listen to music and playing the game to relieve the stress. You need rice cooker to cooking rise or other simple meals. You need television to entertain yourself. These activities needs devices that must connect to electricity. It means that human life has depended on electricity. We can do all this stuff easily if there are no electricity. That's why an important thing in our life are electricity!

MY SKILL IS MY HAPPINESS

Hi, glad to see you again. Today, I want to tell you about my skill. Honestly, I am not sure about my real skill because I never think that what I do is can be my skill. I think, dance is my skill. I love to dance. I started dancing since in High School. I learn to dance the modern dances. My friends and I have won various competitions at the High School level like Honda DBL Dance Competition, LFP Dance Competition, and the other. Besides attending various competitions, we also fill some events as a guest star. In one event, we paid Rp50.000 until Rp100.000 to each person.


I continue to dance in University, but it is not a modern dance. I learn traditional dances like Dayak Dance, Cina Dance and Melayu Dance. In the University level, I just performed in every event that held by the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Tanjungpura Pontianak. As a college student, I really busy so it hard for me to attend another event or competitions. However, my experiences make me confidence to accept a job from my friends. They asked me to teach a dance to their event. It makes me think that dance was my real skill. In the future, I can be a dance teacher as my side job. Besides that, maybe this skill can be my plus value in my CV to search a job because not everyone can dance, right?
