So, this is how it feels, feeling like... Holy crap,  I still can't get enough to believe that i'm already really done. After three years and 28 months as student, I lost my words, so let me just try to come out. 

Surely, writing thesis' gonna be my one of the most majestic stage of my life. I learn a lot from this, not only about conducting research for months, but also searching for meaning of my life, my personal evolution. I realized, so many things when getting finished my study, about not giving up easily and keep moving forward even in stressful situation and facing so many obstacles. I appreciate every single good and bad thing beyond the process. 

Eventually, i figure out this is really not the end. It's just another beginning to be better than ever, forever. 

As I read novel or any other books, one part that i read carefully is the foreword or acknowledgement. That is where the authors put their whole heart to express anything. So, that's also what happen while I finished my thesis. The most personal and i give so much intention (it doesn't mean, another part is done by any old way). So, here it is. My full acknowledgement. 

All praise is due to Allah swt., the Great Almighty, the most merciful, the most beneficent, who bestowed upon the researcher endless blessing and supplied the love, the perseverance, and the guidance to undertake and complete this research. Also, may the peace and blessings be on the most noble of Prophets and Messengers, our Prophet Muhammad SAW, and on his family and all of his Companions. He has shown us the right ways, we will always be in the shelter of Allah until hereafter life.

Undertaking this research would also not have been possible without the support and encouragement of several people for whom the researcher would like to express his thanks and appreciation. The researcher asks Allah to bountifully reward all these people.

The deepest gratitude goes to the researcher’s beloved parents, Drs. H. M. Yusuf, M.Pd.I and Nuraeni, S.Pd. There is nothing in the world could pay what they have given, even the researcher himself know that their love is unconditional and endless. The researcher also would like to extend his gratitude to beloved brother and sisters, Ummil Wildaeni Al Hidayah, M. Rifqi Hanif Yusuf, and Rifqah Annisa Yusnita. Without their repetition questioning the researchers’ graduation, he could not be always kept in track on his thesis completion. Also, to his grandparents, H. Abdul Thalib, (Alm) Kasamung, (Alm) Marzuki, and (Alm) Rabong who has given very early education since childhood. Their lesson life is really meaningful until these days.

Even on the post where you wrote something about me (eventhough just a very little bit). You have no idea how I reacted when the first time I found my gift became the cover of your post!
