It's a common thing in my faculty when students from each department held their own festival. for example, the German department always held KULTURFEST each year, and many other festival from different culture which represented by the language they're learning. but my department, the french, never held one. so this year, pretty much our (class of 2008) last year in college, my friend Saviq decided to make the very first event held by french students and called it FESTIFRANCE. at first some of us was very pessimistic, we yelled and argued towards each other, got a very serious warning from our lecturer (cos they thought that we can't make it) and some of us decided to bailed out cos this event is very stressful. but then, when it happened, tears of joy and happiness came from our eyes. we made it. Me, Nindia, Falia, Atika, Nabila & Fatima were working on the fashion show division. it wasn't easy since we're running low on budget. but we didn't give up, and at the end of the day, we get the most compliment! they said this is the best runway show held in UI so far. they said they never see the room that full before. they said they don't care how much money we asked if the result is as badass as that. i am seriously proud with my team. this wouldn't happened without our teamwork. and i salute the other division too (talk show, music, short movies, ballet dance, exposition, etc) for pulling quite a show too, wouldn't make it without them either. all of the hard work paid off, seeing everybody so happy and so relieved at the end of the show brings happiness tears to my eyes. before the event, i really wished that it'll be over soon. but now, i really miss having the crew around, i miss coming home late cos i have to attend the meeting, i miss running around panicking looking for equipment. it was the sweetest memories before i graduate, and i hope our junior can continued this legacy.
