The Gray Wolf has the scientific name Canis lupus. This animal is a canine native to the wilderness and remote areas of Eurasia and North America. It is the largest extant member of its family, with males averaging 43–45 kg (95–99 lb) and females 36–38.5 kg (79–85 lb). Like the red wolf, it is distinguished from other Canis species by its larger size and less pointed features, particularly on the ears and muzzle. Its winter fur is long and bushy and predominantly a mottled gray in color, although nearly pure white, red, and brown to black also occur. Mammal Species of the World (3rd ed., 2005), a standard reference work in zoology, recognizes 37 subspecies of C. lupus. The genus Canis is the same one that dogs belong to. The Gray Wolf is very expressive, and this is largely attributed to it's more social lifestyle compared to other large predators. Wolves live in packs, hunt together and t…

GATHAPRAYA Public High School 3 Bandung last weekend organized and held a cultural festival called Gathapraya. It was held on the 30th October 2017. Though the event might not seem to be a big deal at first, since it's only a school festival, it was actually quite success, with thousands of people coming to a small field near the school. Who wouldn't come to the festival? With pre-event tickets sold at about 35.000 rupiahs and on the spot tickets going for 65.000 rupiahs, you get to enjoy a wonderful time in a cultural atmosphere and enjoy some great music from some of the most talented musicians from the school and even some famous bands such as, HiVi!, Nidji, and Elephant Kind. It was fun evening for me there. Unfortunately, due to some circumstances, I only got to the festival after about 3 in the afternoon. I missed some performance from the school's own talnt pool, like Classical Music 3, Band 3, and the fashion show that showcases some cultural clothing from around Ind…

That time I was helped by a food vendor

I want to tell you a story from when I was about 7 years old and I was still in the 2nd Grade of elementary school. The story starts as soon as I went home, during elementary school I went home after 1 p.m. I walked out with some group of friends to a nearby field to play football and just hang around. We played football for around an hour and a half. One by one my friends get picked up by their parents until I was only playing with my best friend. But it wasn't long before he was picked up too and I ended up sitting inside a gazebo with some parents and their kids eating siomay (or somay) and there was also the siomay vendor. I was sitting by my lonesome until around 4 p.m without any word from my parents (at the time I did not have a phone). I waited like a lost child, which at the time was quite a correct representation of my situation. Then, the vendor walked up to me, he asked "kid, where are your parents?", I was really sad at the time because I was not picked up b…

All About Me


My name is Alvito, though I'm usually called by others Alvi or Vito. My mom always said that my name came from a popular TV host named Alfito Deannova from the early 2000s. Anyways, I am currently 15 years old as of this blog post and I am also currently attending Senior High School 3 Bandung. This school is one of the most prestigious senior high schools in Bandung and is one of the hardest to get into through academic means. Though I got here through the academic means, this does not at all speak of my academics or will to study. I love learning but I quite despise studying. I hate learning something or cramming something just for the sake of a test or a grade. I like learning new things that I enjoy or have a passion for. Still, I study social studies and history though I have little interest towards them.
Going away from studying but still in the realm of the mind, I like literature. For me, literature is art, a way of communication and a way to express yourself. Any…
