Today, I went to the English Department Office to meet the chairwoman of English Department. I’m still in the first class, so I worried to go to that room due to it’s the first time for me entering the Department Office. When I entered the room, there are seven people in there. I only noticed four people and one of them is my lecturer who teaches Laboratory Work. I came to that office because I wanted to ask the chairwoman’s signature for a proposal. I should wait for a moment as the chairwoman was praying. When I was waiting for her, one of the lecturer said “Ah… I don’t have any time to watch these films.” He said it with showing about five or six films to my Lab Work lecturer. Because I’m too curious to know what film is that, I peek behind his back. You know what happen next? He turned his body and found my curious eyes about the films. I shocked at first when he turned his body and had his eyes on men. Then, I was reflex said “What films do you have, sir?” I thought he will mad at me because I was secretly peeking at his back, but he showed me all the films one by one. I really can’t deny that I am the film fanatic, and I can’t control myself to open my mouth so wide and say “Woaaahh!!”. It’s really embarrassing! But,(like what I have said before that I am a film fanatic) I can’t control my mouth to say “Wow, you have some good films, sir. They are really a famous one.” He smiled and put the films back to his backpack after I finished looking them.
Do you think it’s the last shocking “event” which happens at that time?
No, it’s not.
After he put the films, he had some conversations with my Lab Work lecturer. Suddenly, their conversation changed into a debate. They were debating about Microsoft and technologies. At first, I can follow their debate but it wasn’t too long. Maybe it’s because I don’t really understand about technologies, I get dizzy with their debate. There are some words like “serial number”, “false programs”, “internet connection”, etc. Again, I only could see them in amazement. It was the first time for me to see the lecturers were debating in front of my eyes. It… Is… Very… Amazing!! You can say that I am weird or anything, but it is really amazing for me! They threw up their opinions about it and no one was tired or even lost argument. Even in the end, no one who admitted that he was lose in the debate. They only stop the debate due to one of the lecturer asked them to go to the canteen.
I think over and over again about that and wonder when I will like them. When will I not stuck on giving some arguments? When will I speak fluently on a debate? And the most important part is, when will I win on a debate? I have tried so many times debating with one of the lecturers and it ended with my defeat. I know that It is embarrassing that I have lost so many times with the same person, but I really want to win on a debate! The lecturer who debated with me said that if I want to win on a debate — especially with him — I should read and practice more. It is true because if we don’t have enough knowledge about everything, we will easily defeated any time on every debates. I put the precious advice inside my brain and will remember it forever. I know that it will be very useful in the future. But, the truth is I really want to defeat him. He who always defeats everyone who has a debate with him.
Someday, I will show him that I can debate with him in a strong argument.
Someday, I will debate with him until our mouth dry.
Someday, I will beat him.
Someday, I will make him know my ability.
I will and I shall.
