There is a field near my house and my school, so almost every day I watched people play soccer there. Uniquely, the field is full of coconut trees and people call it coconut trees field. I used to play soccer in break time in the school, in afternoon before young men use the field and every Sunday. Sometimes I played mix with young adult player in the field including my friends in the same age with me. Till we have a solid team, children of my village team. My team`s first match was beaten my neighbor village`s team and the match became our first winning soccer match.
Walk to Remember
When I was a child I had many time to play. I used to spend my time in field and school with my friends older or younger than me. If my mother did not call me I would never stop my game. It is my sweet time to remember and hard to forget. I still could memory when I played with my friend after school and laugh together, want to feel that time once more. I think my childhood is when I had coconut trees soccer hobby and dreaming to be a SD teacher.
It had started since my second grade in SD in 1998. I had already been able to kick my first soccer ball. That was the young men`s ball which was left in my house. I kicked the ball with my foot-thumb for the first time. It was my first time to play with the soccer ball and accompanied by my father.
No life without a dream evens more when we were still a child. When I was a child I had a dream to become a teacher in an elementary school. I like my teacher`s way to teach in front of the class, funny and looked like no difficulties. I had a favorite teacher, her name is syamsimar, I called her `bu mar`. I used to give my serious attention on her explaining in front of the class. So then I thought a dream to become someone like her, it was a teacher. This dream was my first dream in my life I had ever had and probably it will be coming true like majority I take right now in my college. We will see the future.
I want to make my parent proud at me as the first child for my younger brothers under me. I believe I can fly far away from the place I am standing right now. I just live my life with my parent`s supporting behind me, with my parent`s pray. Soccer and teacher were colored my life for almost 20 years, but life is not only a soccer game or dream but also hard work to get it. Dream is gold, hard work is diamond.
