...I actually wrote this post already in Microsoft Word, but then I didn't get the chance to go online until I came back to Jakarta from Bukittinggi, West Sumatera. Well, below is what I wrote that time:
… “Play it Sam. Play, As Time Goes By”.
As time goes by, one story has ended, transformed and became great experiences in the bank of heart and mind. As time goes by, another story continues.
And as time goes by, it’s been more than a month since my last post. I really miss writing a new entry in this blog.
On my way to Indonesia last month, I stopped by in Paris and London for a total 10 days, 4 in Paris and 6 in London. After taking out a lot of stuffs from my luggage during check in to Paris (extremely over weighted!), I finally flew and arrived in Paris in the evening.
4 days in Paris went pretty fast, but I finally managed to go to Louvre, a place that I didn’t go the last time I went there.
Because of my over weighted luggage, I decided not to take a flight to go to London.
So, my decision was a 9 hours bus ride. Though it was a pretty long ride, Eurolines did make a good first impression, I actually enjoyed the trip :)
My stay in London was a completely different story. A lot of things happened during my visit there. From accidentally attending the world premiere of “Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surver”, had a small reunion with Nazmi and Baba (my best friends from high school) who are studying there, traveling around London (of course!), watched Ocean’s Thirteen in the cinema, and meeting with Mr. Marcus Orlovsky from Bryanston Square to talk about my future plan in the field of education. And because my meeting with Mr. Marcus was rescheduled, my supposed-to-be 3 days visit in London had to be prolonged another 3 days (which I actually didn’t mind at all..hehehe).
Arrived in Jakarta, it was 6 days before my brother’s wedding. So directly, everyone was busy preparing. It felt so relieved being able to attend his wedding because I already missed my sister’s wedding when I was in Iceland last year. So out of my parents’ 5 children, 4 of them are now married :)
Anyways, what’s with me now?
I’m still searching for an internship abroad. I don’t know yet where I’m going to go. And frankly, I don’t really care, as long as I find a job that fits me. Meanwhile, around 2 weeks ago AIESEC in Indonesia selected me as one of their Supervisory Group members.
I’m now in Padang, West Sumatera. I’m going to be the Chair of AIESEC in Indonesia’s National Conference which will be held in Bukit Tinggi (around 2 hours driving from Padang) starting tomorrow. I will stay here for 9 days and hopefully go back to Jakarta on July 28th.
Though it’s already a month since I’m back in Indonesia, somehow I still feel that I’m still in the process of readjusting my life here. I’m starting to think that this is not me readjusting. Maybe it’s just me now, changed.
Writing this really brings back a lot of memories and emotions to the surface, which is good, I feel like I need this now. Thank you for all of you who kept asking me to update my blog. Especially to Nadya who even spent time to drew the picture in my Facebook :)
Time does fly very fast, and I just realized that I didn’t even give my self time to reflect as usual. Writing has been an important part of my self reflections now. So I always felt bad everytime I remember that I haven’t write anything since I left Iceland, because I know that this is also something that I personally need to reflect, improve, and move forward.
