Well, I gotta say that my number one idol is actually Jesus, but in this world, yeah, Kurt is the one.

Kurt Hugo Schneider. I don’t really know where to start, since I’ve got a lot to talk about him. Hmm, let’s talk about how I fell for him for the first time. One day, a friend of mine – who has same interests with me, shared a YouTube link to me. Usually, he told me about cool stuffs that he found – mostly about dancing. But this time, he said it was different, and he bet I would like it.

He was right. The video was a cover of Anna Kendrick’s Cups Song, ‘When I’m Gone’ in Pitch Perfect, by four awesome people – Kurt, Sam Tsui, Kina Grannis, and Alex G. They were singing the song and knocking a desk with a cup for the back-sound. They did it very well, and they sounded awesome! I definitely fell for that video, at the first sight! Bet you’ll love it!

At the end of the video, Kurt was talking, telling us what he and his friends just did in the video, and promoting his other videos. I was like, “Oh, he’s cute!” and hen I checked his other videos from his YouTube channel, and became his biggest fan ever since. His videos are all awesome! He makes covers, medleys, mash-ups brilliantly!

I found out that he’s a music producer, film director, songwriter, and singer. He’s such multi-talented! He can play almost every kind of instruments – piano, keyboard, guitar, bass, recorder, harp, drum, etc. He’s like… my dream guy! It’s like, there’s nothing he can’t do. He’s also humble and funny. He’s a genius, too! He went to Yale University, and was a cum laude student! He took Math, and he was a great chess player too! Cute + multi-talented + genius + great personality = who can be better than him?! Really, I never fell for an idol this deep! I love everything about him!

Kurt

His birthday  is, on September 7th. He’s 25 now, which means he’s 8 years older than me. It’s not a problem, right? Lol. He came to Singapore on September 12th, with his mate, Sam, but too bad I couldn’t come. Gee, we were this close! But it’s okay. I promised myself I will come after him, to wherever he is. Wait for me, babe!

He has this cute habit – pulling his tongue out. And he made his own emoticon >> :1. He said it can mean anything, but for me, it’s an emoticon of him, pulling out his tongue, which is so cute!

My favorite video of him? Can’t tell. I love all of them!! But I’ll try to figure this out… Let’s make them into categories.

My favorite medley: Maroon 5 Medley by Victoria Justice and Max Schneider. They sing some Maroon 5’s songs that have been combined brilliantly around a house, with the lyrics everywhere! This medley is genius! Go check it out to know what I mean!

My favorite mash-up: Call Me Maybe and Payphone Mash-up by James Alan and Jessica Jarrell. The combination of the songs are great, and they both sound amazing! Kurt and his friend, Jake, play the back-sounds, and you’ll see how brilliant they are!

My favorite Sam Tsui’s collab: Just A Dream – Sam Tsui ft. Christina Grimmie cover. Sam and Christina…. They really sound amazing!!! And the music (by Kurt), I can’t praise him more!

Check out my song review!

My favorite Kurt’s cover: Hey There Delilah by Plain White T’s. Kurt looks so cute here! I can melt a thousand times every time I watch this. And I love the song! The lyrics are sweet. I always imagine Kurt singing it for me.

Check out my song review!

My favorite Kurt’s collab: Let Her Go by Passenger – Tyler Wards and Kurt Hugo Schneider cover. Gah! The lyrics are so sweet, and they sing it amazingly. So touching!!

Check out my song review!

My favorite original: Bring Me The Night by Sam Tsui ft. Kina Grannis. The whole thing – the video, the lyrics, are all sweet! Kina and Sam sound amazing, and uh, this one is so touching!!

Check out my song review!

My favorite Sam and Kurt’s collab: Mirrors by Justin Timberlake, their cover. Don’t know what to say. I really love this song!!

Check out my song review!

Okay, I guess that’s all. But really, you should pay a visit to Kurt’s channel. Watch all his videos, and subscribe. Promise it’ll be fun!

He makes songs sound better, even better than the original one! I never liked Justin Bieber’s or One Direction’s songs, but after he made the cover of them, I started to love the songs! But the cover version, of course! Peace xD

About his personal life, I only know that his mother is Laurie S Auth, his father is Michael Schneider, and his sister is Carson Rose Schneider. Max Schneider is not his brother. They’ve co-incidentally got a same surname. I don’t know if he has a girlfriend or not, but I hope he doesn’t have one :p He said he has ever dated his fans, so…. XP

I love his partners, too – Sam Tsui, Christina Grimmie, Alex Goot, Tyler Wards, Chrissy Constanza, Kylee, Kina Grannis, Alex G, Olivia Noelle, Megan Nicole, King The Kid, Avery, etc. They’re all amazing!

There’s this time when Kurt made a video for his graduation. It’s called “Nothing Left Unsaid.” Simple, but touching!

He also collaborates with Husky Starcraft, making Nerd Alert videos. So cute!

He also has made an online musical series, called College Musical. It has only 4 episodes, and he said he’s making a movie based on the series. Can’t wait! He’s joining the AMAs for Coca Cola now. Awesome, right? Help him vote every week >> theamas.com/coke.

Well, he’s not that famous. He’s just YouTube sensational. But he has been invited to Ellen and Oprah! So cool, right? And now that he had done a tour, I guess he’s starting to be famous. He should be! xD

His first video was a cover of Can I Have This Dance from High School Musical 3, where Sam sang both Troy’s and Gabriella’s line. Cute!  I laughed so hard on this.

And he got famous after his Michael Jackson Medley. It reached more than 31 millions views now!

What again? Oh, he really loves ice cream! And this is his twitter account: @KurtHSchneider. Go follow him! I wish I’m followed by him… Someday I will!

I can write pages about him, but for now, that’s all. Thank you for reading. I hope you enjoyed it! Keep calm and love Kurt Hugo Schneider!

There are plenty fishes in the sea, so are handsome fishes, and handsome men. Based on that fact, I decided to make a list of handsome and charming men, in my opinion, of course.

There are too many handsome and charming men, but I’m picking the best ones, the ones who manage to make my heart skips a beat. So here they are:

1. Tom Cruise

Tom Cruise

Everyone knows his charm, but I hate to admit, that I knew him for the first time from Oblivion the movie (yeah, I lived under a rock like Patrick, but I’m worse, cause he’s got a TV while I’m not). And I totally fall for him!

1. Paul Walker

The Fast and Furious star. Who doesn’t know his charm? But again, I hate to admit it, I started to watch Fast and Furious from the sixth one. Yeah, you might really think I”m living under a rock, but hey, it’s not that bad! And like always, I fall for him, for sure!

1. Chris Pine

1. Channing Tatum

1. Matthew Goode

He is my prince charming since I was a kid! I watched his “Chasing Liberty” and totally melt for his charm. Then, he plays Stoker, a thriller movie that I never wanna watch. But for him, I watched it. He’s still cute over his age.

1. Charlie Hunnam

And meet Dave Franco’s brother who is also cute! Oh, my. What did their mom eat?! XP I saw him in Oz The Great and Powerful, then in Spiderman. I felt like I’ve seen him before. Then, I realized he’s Dave’s brother, since they do look alike and they’ve got same surname.

1. KURT HUGO SCHNEIDER

Kurt Hugo Schneider

Pic from: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL5259A14B803E0633

He’s quite different from men upstairs…. He’s not that famous. He’s a music producer/director, and a YouTube sensational. He makes videos (covers, medleys, mash-ups, and now he has originals) which are all awesome! He’s not just cute and charming, but also multi-talented. He can play many music instruments, such as piano, keyboard, guitar, drum, recorder, harp, and so forth! He sings too! Wikipedia describes him as: an American video editor, musician, singer and songwriter. I know right, he’s too good to be true! He’s almost perfect! Check out his YouTube channel, and subscribe! Promise it’ll be fun!
P.S: He’s the real number one, actually xD More of Kurt

You might think that the numbers are messed up. Think again! Can you decide who’s the cutest? Well, I can’t. So, everyone is number ONE!

Wait, is this the end of the list? No, I don’t think so. Like I said, there are plenty (handsome) fishes in the sea, so it’s an endless list. I will make it longer anytime I want! XD

(P.S: I modified it a bit) 

Empat tahun yang lalu, Papa meninggal dunia. Keluargaku merasa sangat terpukul. Belum lagi, setelah kejadian itu, rumahku kerampokan. Dua hal itu meyakinkan Mama, kalau tempat tinggal kami sudah tidak aman lagi. Mama pun memutuskan untuk pindah ke kota lain – berharap suasana baru dapat menghibur kami semua. Saat itu, aku masih kelas 3 SMP. Tanggung sekali untuk pindah. Tapi, aku tidak punya pilihan lain.

Pendaftaran di sekolah baruku ditutup pada akhir bulan itu, jadi aku harus segera pindah dan melakukan pendaftaran. Karena masih banyak urusan yang harus Mama urus di kota lama, jadi aku pun terpaksa berangkat sendirian. Selama ini, bila keluargaku mau pindah, Mamalah yang mengemas barang-barang kami. Tapi kali itu tidak. Aku harus belajar mengemas barang-barangku sendiri.

Dan berangkatlah aku sendirian, untuk yang pertama kalinya, Saat aku tahu aku harus berangkat sendirian, aku otomatis merasa panik dan takut. Pikiran-pikiran negatif mulai menghantui, tetapi aku berusaha untuk menenangkan diri. Aku tidak boleh menyerah sebelum mencoba.

Ternyata, semuanya tidak sesulit yang kukira. Aku sampai dengan selamat, dan menginap di rumah omku sampai Mama datang. Omku membantu proses pendaftaran ke sekolah baruku, tapi aku juga harus mengurus hal-hal lain sendiri – seperti seragam, buku, dan lain-lain. Semua itu baru bagiku. Aku mencoba melakukan hal-hal yang belum pernah kulakukan sebelumnya. And it felt great.

Selama ini, aku hanya menerima apa jadinya. Aku tidak pernah peduli dengan urusan-urusan yang kuanggap urusan ‘orang dewasa’. Dan tiba-tiba saja, aku harus mengurusnya sendiri.  Mentalku belum siap, dan itu membuatku merasa putus asa setiap kali berhadapan dengan masalah. Aku selalu memulai dengan kata “tidak bisa” sebelum mencoba. Tetapi, setelah semua kejadian buruk itu menimpaku, aku akhirnya belajar bahwa tiada hal yang tidak bisa kita lakukan jika kita mau mencoba. Tuhan tidak pernah memberi cobaan yang tidak sanggup kita lalui.

Hidup itu memang sulit. Masalah tidak pernah berhenti menghadang kita. Setelah Papa meninggal, Mama harus mencari kerja. Thank God she got a great job. Pekerjaannya itu menjanjikan penghasilan yang cukup untuk keluarga kami, tetapi tidak membuat  Mama terlalu sibuk.

Tapi, terkadang Mama harus pergi ke luar kota. And when that happens, she always made me in charge. Aku harus mengurus semua urusan rumah tangga sendirian. This is new (again).  Aku harus belajar ini dan itu – belajar mandiri. Masih ada sebagian diriku yang hobi mengatakan “tidak bisa” seperti dulu, tetapi bedanya, sekarang,  sebagian diriku yang lain bisa mengatakan kata “bisa”, dan terus menyemangatiku untuk mencoba terus dan terus setiap kali saya jatuh. Benar kata orang. Ketika kita yakin kita bisa, kita dapat melalui masalah terberat sekalipun.

P.S (again): The limit was 200 words, so that’s why it’s really short and simple. But I hope you still enjoyed it. Thanks for reading 😀
