Today was awful. I mean not at part when I met Lika and Areta, it was a blast, a bomb, a dynamite. But the part when I played tennis.

Dude, my right hand is still shaking when Im typing this. It goes really numb

Here is the problem. I was (WAS, note it, WAS, W-A-S, means not anymore) a representative of my batch to play tennis at Dekan Cup (an intern sports competition for FKUI big family). The reason why I was chosen is the fact that I studied tennis for 1sks in the first semester. There were only 4 girls joined tennis class. I was like “okay, no prob, bro” for being the representative, not even thinking about practicing. Hey, dude, I was pretty good at tennis class and doing all those basic shot; it was more like  a dance, actually. Unfortunately, we did not practice the tennis game, just the basic things: hand grip, body position, etc. because of the unpredictable weather. But I was still chill out.

HEY, WHY THE HELL MY RIGHT HAND IS STILL SHAKING???? Been 30 minutes since I played!!

The first tennis game should have been held on a beautiful Friday. Oops, an awful Friday. Because I had only slept like 1,5hour for that night and I was told about the game only a day before. I did not really care, honestly. All I wanted to do was sleep all day. At 2 p.m. I went back to my room and I fell asleep as I put my head on my lovely pillows. When I finally woke up, I found out it was dark outside, well… It was already 10 pm. I almost shouted: I should have played tennis at 5 pm dude!!! I ran to my phone and found like 7 text messages there. I thought I was so dead. SO f-ing dead.

But God saved me that time

The game was canceled. I was so relieved because of the fact that I fell asleep. It would have been really unprofessional if I had missed the game because I fell asleep. Because I had only had 1,5hour sleep at the previous night.

When holiday came, my senior informed me that the tennis game will be held on one tuesday. She was too late: I had already booked a ticket for getting back to Bandung. I told her, honestly, that I really could not cancel it. Then, she asked me at what time I could play. Anytime I wanted to. I was actually embarrassed when she asked me this. Because my partner was from batch 2006 and she must have been busier than I was. And that was me who named the time. I finally named the time. It was exactly a week ago.

This time, I realized I NEVER PLAYED TENNIS GAME… like NEVER for my entire life.

I practiced tennis when I was at elementary school but I rarely attended. I was too lazy to get up from a nap. I think it’s a karma, you know. I pretended like I was sleeping for skipping a tennis lesson.

I should have known this

I turned really nervous that on the day of the game, I started practicing by watching a tennis game on you tube. Dude, I DID NOT EVEN KNOW how exactly the tennis game rules are until this afternoon

On that day, God saved me for the 2nd time

I was winning the game because my senior suddenly canceled the game like 30 minutes before the game should have started. I thought that could not be happening, then I decided I would practice tennis in Bandung during my holiday.

So I can be a pro

Not a pro. Being not so poor on tennis game is enough for me



at this very time, I have decided: I cant play tennis. This is just not my nature. I am not into tennis like I was (and hopefully, am) into hockey. I cant have the ball under my control! They kept going everywhere. My basic technique was good, average at least, but the point of a tennis game is not how good your techniques are, how good you could do  the “tennis dancing”; its about how to get more scores, more won-sets, and then winning the game! And of course about having fun during the sports. I DONT HAVE THEM ALL, I dont even feel that “fun” part. I kept moving my wrist when it should have stayed there. I kept doing that again and again.

Believe me, I was very poor.

This is crazy. I should stop. Im just gonna tell Adwin and Band Dana tonight. Or maybe tomorrow morning when I have chilled out
