About Nia

Hi!

My name is Nia M. Wardani. You can call me Nia. My middle name is quite difficult to pronounce and to spell, so let's just leave it that way. :)

I am a physics teacher in a bilingual high school in Semarang, Indonesia. I’ve been teaching physics with English as a medium of instruction to students who use English as a second or third language since 2013.

In this personal blog, I share stories about my experience in teaching, my passion in physics and books, projects I do, and also life moments I witnessed.

A Logbook of Life Discoveries

This blog is a logbook of my life. It is a note of what life lessons I learned from my glasses. You know when scientists do research, a log book is one most important thing they need to keep to record all of their discoveries. My life is full of discoveries. Many good things I found are too good to be forgotten. So, why don’t I record it in a logbook?

Scientists record every step they took, every improvement of their project, and every failure, in a logbook, in order to move forward each day. I hope this blog can also be a place for me to reflect, and help me to become a better person each day.

              The logo I choose for this blog consists of an open logbook with eyeglasses on it. The logo represents honesty, trustworthiness. I want the blog to be open for everyone reading the knowledge and the experience that I got. Eye glasses represent my point of view of seeing things.

              I also choose a simple header in this blog to emphasize my messages I mentioned above. Major color of the blog is white representing simplicity, the black text color means outrightness. These two colors also, according to blog experts, increase readability of the articles. 

              By choosing these colors, I hope you enjoy your reading experience in this blog.
