REALISTICALLY-SPEAKING: BEING ROMANTICALLY-CHALLENGED

They say life is funny and unpredictable. You think you always know what to do until you are faced with the unexpected. It doesn’t always come from other people or other outer influences.

                Oftentimes, it can come from within – which is yourself. You. You think you really know who you are until the day you surprise yourself.

                After that, you are left with more questions than you can really answer. Who are you, really? You’re a much different person than you were before. You didn’t use to be like this.

                However, people do change – one way or another. Time and space can change them in so many ways. It’s not always bad. Sometimes it’s a good thing, a necessity.

                Some people you know who know you too have noticed those – rather drastic – changes in your life. Somehow, your father’s death has started it all. You’ve acknowledged the fact that yes, life is short. You still want to do a lot, despite so little time.

                Will you be able to do that?

                Anyway, they’ve told you how much they admire you. After your father’s funeral, you took a new job. You moved to live on your own in the central city. You see, that’s still uncommon for Indonesian young women. They always talk a lot about getting married first or moving in with your husband – or sticking with your family and all that jazz.

                Well, you’ve gone past that and become more independent now, your dream life gradually is coming true. How about giving love one more try?

                Hmm, good question. We’ll see.

                R.

THE LISTS:
12/9/2008

The things that make me feel relieved today:

 1.I've survived my presentation last Saturday - in a good way.:D Although the movie file couldn't be opened (yikes!:|), at least they seemed well-satisfied and liked my demo.

 2.This term is almost over.:D YAY! After this, I'll have long year-end break until January 12 from December 20. (Well, except for the TE, that is - which will start again on January 6.:P) I'm still having FCE classes on Wednesday mornings until March, but that's okay.:) I like that class.

 My plans for this long holiday ahead:

 1.More exercises. No excuses.

 2.Getting another side-job so that I can still earn some money during term break. It's hard to survive only on one job in Jakarta.

 3.Writing, writing, and writing.

 What upsets me the most (until I feel like biting people's heads off!:x):

 1.AMINEF rejected my scholarship application.:(

 2.Our 'Dear, Beloved' Mr.President SBY has finally signed the legal document for...The Stupid Bill (UU APP). 'Yay'.*sneers* From now on, my country will be working on gradual to permanent segregation. Forget corruption. Why? The highly-corrupting government of this country is willing to teach and lecture the people about moral values - without having their own checked first. Wheee! We're not going to think for ourselves, because - with The Stupid Bill (UU APP) fully-supported by The President and The  House of The 'So-Called' Representatives - we are going to be forever dictated and told what to do about which is right and wrong. Why? Because we're still (considered) too stupid and immature  be able to tell the difference. The most horrible news is, if you're a woman - they only see (and treat) you here more as mere objects. Aren't we all dumb, brainless Barbies need to be overdressed so the lads won't lose it like all dogs do???

 Dear 'Kind' Sir, thank you very much for tearing this country apart. We could never thank you enough for such a banged-up job!!!
