Last semester was the most interesting time since i studied as university student. Several offers come to me when i was facing that semester. Sometimes it was working for doing something or making something. the first one is i got an offer from unknown person from Nganjuk city. He was asking me about the retail program for a shop. Actually at the time, i didn’t know how much money that i should ask to him. Without asking to anyone, i just directly asking him “What about 5 million sir ?”. Fortunately that guys was just agree towards my request. Then, we made a deal. I was thinking that i was gonna be great experience as university student cause besides i could get a lot of money, i also can get a lot of experience from that job. 2 week to go, he asked me to go to Nganjuk for analyzing the real problem that is exactly happening in there (look like a real detective).
When i was coming in there. i met directly with the owner. i implemented what i’ve learned in university about software requirement. By using interview method, i wrote down the requirement in my small note. I knew that the owner will alwasy asking “what if word”. that kind of word must be limited the clear requirement and formerly authorized in a contract. After negotiation, we decided that the program will cost 10 million IDR. Wow, that was pretty much money for an ordinary student like me. without any doubt i take the risk for handling the project by my self.
Mean while finishing the project, pressure also came from university task and final assignment. almost every day getting stress out with code and error. OMG, sometimes i forgot for praying. Maybe the title is really so suitable with this post. everything in my life is screwed up by money. Until the top of the pressure. i couldn’t finish the final assignment. even though the project is finished well, not only i disappointed to my self but also all people around me. abi,umi, brother also my friends in ERP team. till we can not graduate in semester 7th. Everything because of money.
In 8th semester i promise to my self to finish everything before April. From here i got a wisdom that
“money is not everything. But everything needs money” and
“as human, if we do anything for money orientation money will leave us. but if everything cause of allah, money will come to use”
