The Differences between Men and Women’s Conversation

Hello again readers. This time I want to talk about the differences between men and women in conversation. In this world, there are only two genders, male and female. Both genders have many differences in each other, especially in conversation. Conversation is the way people interact to each other. Therefore, men and women also have conversation to each other. However, as previously stated, the way they communicate is different. Why do men and women talk in different ways in conversations? Because there are two factors that make them like that. The first factor is women are more verbally skilled than men and the second is both sexes’ purposes in conversation.

These two factors are the main reasons that cause men and women’s are different conversation. Women are more verbally skilled than men. In other words, women talk more than men. Men always talk about facts while women always talk about people, relationships and feelings, in other words, gossiping. Men’s communication purpose is to getting status in a hierarchical social order while women’s communication purpose is to establish connections and negotiating relationships. This causes women can simply be intimate friends to each other by just sitting and talking. Meanwhile, men are not like that. They must do activities and things together in order to get intimate to each other.

However, majority of societies claim that typical women’s speech make women less well suited than men to occupy positions of power and authority. In other words, most of societies consider that women are inferior to men. It is denied by most experts such as Suciu (2012) who said just because women speak differently does not mean that women are inferior to men. Women can also have positions of power and authority like men if they want to.

I always familiar to this since I’ve always talk to women. I have some close female friends who talk about many things with me. I conclude that almost all of them are fussy (LOL). However, the good thing about it is they’re good at speaking English, better than me and my male friends. They are also fun to be shared stories each other.

In conclusion, men and women are indeed speak, talk and interact differently and often have miscommunication between them. However, this can cause them develop further relationship since they are interested to know and understand each other. The differences can make them interested to each other since they want to accept the differences of the way they communicate to each other.

Personal Statement

Hello readers. Welcome to my wordpress. In this opportunity, I will discuss about my personal statement. It’s not like you will care or concern about it but I just want to share it anyway.

My name is Mochammad Syaid Setio. I was born in Jakarta, April 6th 1995. I live in Tangerang with my parents now. I have been studying at Binus University majoring in English Department from 2012 until now and hopefully, this year is the last year for me since I’m doing on my thesis. I chose English Department as my major in Binus University due to my interest to learn English further. I have always been excited of English subject since when I was in elementary school.

As far as I remember, I was already very excited about English when I was an elementary student. I don’t mean to be boastful but I always got minimum B grade for English subject that time. This condition continued to my middle and high school years, even I got the highest grade in my class on national exam for English class. This caused my friends always asked about English subject to me in middle to high school years.

After I graduated from high school, I intended to apply in Binus University as my chosen college years. It was because a high school classmate invited me to apply in Binus University and I was already interested to apply since there is a major that I like, English Department. I did a test to apply in the university and I passed it. Well, I was happy that I could pass the test and enter the university as a student since I failed on SNMPTN test. After that, there was a program that introduced the new students about the university called Freshmen Enrichment Program (FEP). At first I thought the orientation term would be a nightmare for me since I always imagined the orientation term for freshmen was always about seniors bullying the freshmen but in reality it was far from my expectation. It was even beyond my expectation that the fact about FEP was boring to me. However, it was better to be like that than being bullied by the seniors just like my expectation about it.

After the FEP ended, I started to study in Binus University as an official English Department student. On the earlier semesters, I was shocked. It was because English is really difficult to learn in this state. The English subjects on English Department are far more difficult than English subjects in elementary, middle and even high school. I was struggled to learn it since my grammar, writing and speaking skills were very bad that time. Only listening skill that was average of me. Not to mention there were many subjects in English Department that I have never heard before from elementary high school years such as world concepts, English phonology, Introduction to linguistics, etc. Those were strange to me since I had no idea that my department, English Literature, has so many subjects that were difficult to learn. However, I wanted to study and improve my English skill more even though I was struggled at first.

In the fifth semester, there were three choices of streaming that available for English Department students to choose. The three choices of streaming were teaching, business and tourism. I chose tourism as my streaming since I always love about hospitality, tourism and travel. There was a subject called travel management in which me and my friends made a group and became tour guides. I learned so many things about tourism and hospitality industry from the subject. I also learned about how to perform hospitality to the customers as a tour guide.

In conclusion, I hope I can work in hospitality, tourism and even service industries in the future. I can learn to speak well to the customers and provide them hospitality and quality service since I am a not-so-good speaker. I’m interested in hospitality, tourism and service industries so that I can improve my service and communication to the customers through a service job.

AC Milan: My Favorite Football Club

placeholder-normal

            Hello readers, I’m back with my second post. This time I want to discuss about my favorite football club, AC Milan. Associazione Calcio Milano or simply AC Milan is an Italian Football club based on Milano City, Italy which was established on 16 December 1899 by English expatriates Alfred Edwards and Herbert Kilpin, who came from the English city of Nottingham. It produces so many great and legendary players. It also has gained so many trophies since it was founded and considered as one of the greatest football clubs of all time. Milan has won 7 UEFA Champions League (UCL) titles and 18 titles of the most known Italian football competition league, Serie A. Their achievement in UCL is only second behind Spanish football club, Real Madrid with 12 titles while their Serie A achievement is only second behind Juventus with 33 titles and tie with Inter.

This football club is my favorite football club. I like this football club because it has great players and achievements in their history. Milan also made me like football matches. I started to like Milan back when I was a kid in 2004. Back then, my uncles was playing Winning Eleven, a football game that is compatible with PlayStation 1. One of my uncles chose Milan as his team. I thought this team have great players when my uncle showed the players’ skills in formation mode before started the match. Players like Maldini, Costacurta, Serginho, Shevchenko, Inzaghi had great skill statistics on the game. I only liked the team but I hadn’t become a fan back then. I started to like Milan more when I was watching their matches in 2005 UCL and 2007 UCL. Milan was playing on the 2005 UCL final vs Liverpool. I was amazed when they were exceling Liverpool with scoring 3 goals in the first half. I thought they were going to win it but I was shocked to see Liverpool could score 3 goals to make it tie until the penalty shootout round which they won it and lifted their fifth UCL trophy. I thought Milan was superior but I was a bit disappointed when they lost the penalty shootout round. However, I still liked them. In 2007 UCL, they made it to the final round again and met the same team that have beaten them in 2005 final UCL, Liverpool. That time, Milan finally got their revenge on Liverpool by beating them 2-1 and lifted their seventh UCL trophy. I was happy at the time but I still only liked Milan, not a fan of them. After that, I wasn’t following the news about them anymore since I lost my interest in football matches.

Years later in 2012, I decided to follow the news about Milan again since I started to have my interest in football matches again. It was because I was addicted to play Winning Eleven on PlayStation 2 and Milan was always my favorite team on the game. Sadly, their performances were going down in 2012. They struggled to go further than quarter final round in UCL. They even struggled too in Serie A when they ever went down to 16th on the Serie A table even though they finished third on the 2012/2013 final season of Serie A. The funny hing is I became a Milanisti (epithet of an AC Milan fan) when they were down, not when they wer in their glory times. They even went down worse than 2012/2013 Serie A season in 2013/2014 Serie A season which they finished only on 8th on the Serie A table. That means they couldn’t participate in the UCL next season because every Serie A team must at least finish on the third position on Serie A table to participate in the UCL next season. In 2014/2015 season, they appointed Filippo Inzaghi which was a Milan player as their manager. In the end of the season, Milan showed bad results again with finished 8th again on the Serie A table. This caused Milanisti from around the world protest the Milan management team. They accused Milan management team caused Milan performance drop by buying or loaning mediocre football players. Milan decided to sack Inzaghi and appointed Sinisa Mihajlovic as Milan manager in 2015/2016 season but in the end Milan only finished 7th on the Serie A table. Milanisti around the world protest the Milan management team again by accusing whoever Milan manager is, Milan will not rise again if the management only buy and loan mediocre players.

In 2016/2017 season, Milan appointed Vincenzo Montella as the new Milan manager. In the season, Milan finally had a good performance. They beat Juventus two times in Serie A and supercoppa which they couldn’t do since 2012. Since they beat Juventus in supercoppa (the match which play between the champion of Serie A and the Champion of Coppa Italia), they lifted their first trophy since 2011 on December 2016. Milan has some great young players that were graduated from Milan academy football club such as Gianluigi Donarumma, Manuel Locatelli, Davide Calabria, etc which were prominent in the team to perform a good performance in the season. In the end of the season, Milan only finished 6th on the table. It’s because Milan still has mediocre players aside their great young players. However, Milan management and Milan players are satisfied with their performances and Montella performance since they are back to compete in Europe by competing in Europe League (the second caste European football clubs competition behind UCL) since they finished 6th on the Serie A table. There is also a major change in Milan management team. Silvio Berlusconi, who was the Milan chairman from 1986, decided to sell Milan to a Chinese businessman, Yonghong Li. He realized that he had no power or money anymore to make Milan rise again to buy great players so that he decided to sell Milan to Yonghong Li. Now, Yonghong Li gives funds to Milan management to buy great players and start the 2017/2018 Serie A season with great players and also ready to make Milan rise again.

Michael Jackson as King of Pop

Hello, this is my first post since my wordpress had made in 2012 (LOL). In this opportunity, I want to post about one of my favorite musicians who named Michael Jackson. There are a lot of musicians who exist in music industry nowadays but only few of them are talented. A lot of musicians do not know how to produce great music nowadays. They only make not-so-catchy music and bragging themselves about how talented they are. Talented musicians are people who can produce great music and can stand the test of time. One of them is Michael Jackson. Michael Jackson was born on August 29, 1958 in Indiana, U.S. He is considered by most people as the King of Pop. I will tell about why Michael Jackson is considered as the King of Pop based on his achievements such as his single and album sales and his Moonwalk as his signature move.

Michael-Jackson

 Michael Jackson was one of the singers in his group, The Jackson 5, which consists of six members of his fellow brothers. He went solo for the first time in 1972 with “Got to Be There” album and had released many solo albums until now, even there are two albums that have been released after his death in 2009, “Michael” and “Xscape” album. The first reason why he is considered as the King of Pop by most people because he has sold more than 100 million copies albums and 350 million copies combined with his singles. He even had sold 65 million copies of “Thriller” album and it is considered as the most sold album in the world. Hence, he is one of the top five best-selling artists in the world and the best-selling pop artist of all time. He also has one single titled “Billie Jean” which is considered as one of the best songs of all time.

The second reason is his Moonwalk as his signature dance move. Michael Jackson is not just a mere pop singer. He can dance too, not only can dance but also dance greatly like an expert dancer. However, there is one song that is arguably as his most popular and most topped music charts in his career titled “Billie Jean” which moonwalk dance (he named the dance by himself) existed. Moonwalk is a dance move in which the dancer moves backwards while appearing to be making the physical movement of walking forwards. He performed moonwalk dance for the first time in Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever on March 25, 1983, although he was not the one who invented it, but it became popular because of his work. People loved the dance since it is unique and matched the Billie Jean song. Michael later use the dance as his trademark or signature move in other songs in other albums that released after Thriller album like “Smooth Criminal”, “You Rock My World”, etc. The dance is still popular nowadays. People do it to pay a tribute to him who died on June 25, 2009. The people who do dance cover on Michael’s songs always do the moonwalk. People who get dance lesson can do it too, since moonwalk is considered as one of the dance move that can be learned in a dance school.

Furthermore, I like him as a musician because of his songs and dance moves. He has created and released so many catchy songs that are popular to the public. I like his songs such as Earth Song, Heal The World, Slave to The Rhythm, Beat It, Thriller, Rock with You,  I’ll be There, Smooth Criminal, You are not Alone, You Rock My World, Stranger in Moscow, and many more beside his masterpiece song, Billie Jean. His songs are easy-to-listen and catchy. Besides that, he also always dances so well in his live performance or in his music video. He can do many other dance moves besides Moonwalk and he always dance to them smoothly, even though he performs it in an old age.

There are some people of younger generation who do not consider him as the king of pop. Some of them even do not know who Michael Jackson is and how popular Michael Jackson was since they only know singers that exist and produce average Electronic Dance Music or EDM music nowadays. However, there is no doubt that Michael Jackson is still popular and considered as the King of Pop because of his music sales and legacy. There was an evidence that can prove it. Jackson’s latest album “Michael” had one single that titled “Love Never Felt So Good” which could reach number nine in Billboard Hot 100 on May 21, 2014. Hence, he became the first artist in history to have a top ten single in the Billboard Hot 100 in five different decades. He could prove that he could still sell his music and became popular despite there are so many new singers that produce EDM.

 From the writing above, I conclude that Michael Jackson is worthy to be called as King of Pop. He has sold more than 100 million copies singles and albums. He also popularized a great dance moves that has been popular and covered until now. Unfortunately, he died on June 25, 2009 at the age of 50 at his house. The whole world was shocked and cried when the news about his death spread. There were many of the popular public figures accompanied his corpse to his final resting place. Sometime after his death, there were also many musicians in the world paying tribute to him by covering his songs. However, his legacies will never die even after his death. There were many of his song recordings in the past that have never been released found at his house. These songs later are released, remixed and divided to two albums, one album titled “Michael” released in 2010 with hit songs like “Hold My Hand (Featuring Akon)” and “Hollywood Tonight” and the other one is titled “Xscape” released in 2014 with hit songs like “Love Never Felt So Good” and “Slave to the Rhythm”. These albums entered the top 10 billboard for best-selling albums. Hold My Hand and Love Never Felt So Good were also entered top 10 billboard singles. This proves that Jackson’s legacies are timeless even after his death.
