The greatest journey is yet to come

I've spent minutes on deciding whether I should capitalize the pronoun or not for the title. After some searches on Google, I've decided that the article wasn't making any sense to me so I'll stay with no capitalization at all, lol.

There are soooo many things that I haven't been sharing on this blog! So to get started, I'll go with my last semester. My last semester in college, that would be my second semester, went quite well, I'd say. I'm not even regretting taking Catholic class because there are things which matter more than GPA. And getting a less-than-A-minus is seriously worth it compared with the closeness with KUKSA. Hahahahahahaha.

Last semester was especially a hustle-bustle for me. I've got several events due that semester, two biddings which were very time-and-energy consuming, and a new organization to adjust to. The only thing that made me survive was probably the lack of tutoring classes, I got two less tutoring classes than the first semester. So, five additional free hours!

80% guess of me in PDD would be right
After participating in numerous events as the committee (most of them in Publication, Documentation, and Design division) I come to realize that your major in college is not your limitation. I had always been afraid since junior high that I wouldn't be qualified enough, that when I go to college everybody would have mastered the study materials, that once you've decided to master a major then there would be nothing else to do. However, I managed to keep doing my thing by participating in these committees. I can even say that my Photoshop skills have progressed so much in college (since I technically did not use Photoshop at all in high school). Not all of them were satisfying, but I got so many experiences and friends (calling them 'links' is so much degrading, I think) that I wouldn't have expected I would. I also remember that I loved to write so much and I even got to write an article here!

My commuting skills also have developed so much. I'm being more flexible and places are more reachable for me, huahaha. Much thanks to the emerging of transportation mobile-app and Google maps this year. The year 2016 sure brings me a lot. Next month, for the first time ever in my life, I will be taking inter-cities train!!! I'll go to Malang with some of my friends, the farthest place to go without parents ever for me! So, I'll make sure to bring the updates of my (surely will be) amazing trip here.

Lately I've been talking a lot about my college life on my blog. It's all because people's blogs about college really inspired me and helped me that much back then and I'm hoping to bring the same feelings to for other people. So, I'm happy to say that I'm glad that I'll be meeting some of these people in the new year. I feel like my voice can really reach people. My utmost happiness would be toward this one friend who really struggled with me together through those sleepless nights studying stuff online. Congrats, Angga!


  1. It's me again, your faithful reader! From the top, you are absolutely correct. The best IS indeed yet to come, as there is a really high chance for you to get promoted as BPH from all the events you've worked as staff before. An advice from a similarly hardworking, event attending, (and yes, pdd job working too,ost of the time) upperclassmen, you better keep your games up or try cutting down on your activities coz heck if it aint gettin harder and harder to keep your grades up amidst all the stuff you have to do later (if you choose to take the position).

    Well, do try to have a great time going to malang since... if i calculated correctly we only have about a few... weeks(?) Till the start of next term (im going to belitung too so best of luck for both of us, i guess). Oh and also thumbs up for writing again, heck it has been too long since ur last post.

    P.s. grammar nazi inside of me is telling you about that "more matter part. Its better to use "that matters more", but thats for another day. Cheers m8

    1. Yep, I am actually a manager of two events haha (both as PDD hmm). I'm trying to cut off some of my activities, well mostly thanks to SPA's policy of no double big 4 because I think I have very low self-resistance (?) Wow good luck for the Belitung trip! It has sooo many great scenery but beware of the bad sunburnt lol.

      Thanks for the revisionnnn hahaha I actually realized it was a bit weird while re-reading it but took no action.

  2. I hope youll have a great time at the "farthest place to go without parents ever for me"!
    Bonne vacances! <3

    1. Hopefully the Mt.Bromo will be available for tourists as I want to remake your photos there so badly HAHA
      Merci beaucoup! You must be so pro for not using the mainstream 'bon voyage'.

  3. Hi there, i assure you that we don't know each other, and i swear god that i was accidentally stumbled here when i was surfing, i mean i have no deliberate motive, for you know that i can guarantee that i don't know you and you don't know me either. Well, i just wanna tell you that i'm glad to know that i'm not the only one who's still using blogger, bet you know that feeling hahaha so.... i've added you to my reading list, and please, keep posting!

    1. Woa, hi and thank you! Adding you too to my reading list! :)
