Yesterday morning, this e-mail shocked me. As Sarah, friend from Belgium woke me up and my room mate, Vanessa when we were still sleeping. Yeah, it was a shocking news, indeed. Apparently, our scholarship is being extended until the end of September. And for whom who wants to stay, should give a confirmation email to the International Center within less than 2 days. Dang, dang what should I say then?
No one will argue that this chance was extremely tempting. Live a year in Japan, developed my Japanese language, fully covered, new dorm, great friends. Who want to waste it away?
Within less than 30 minutes, I already answered the e-mail. Saying sorry, and NO.
Kind of hard decision to make, though. But I know that I have to stop playing around now.
You want to see Japan, Monik?
Yeah, you’ve already there.
You want to study in Japan?
You already did.
You got things done.
Should I ask more?
Whether I like it or not, I have to face the fact that I still have a lot of things to do in Indonesia.
THI, KKN, bachelor paper, and graduation are waiting on the line. I know that my parents are already insist me to finish my undergraduate degree as soon as possible. They are worried about my age (blame SDN Ungaran I for the age requirement), according to age requirement if I want to apply for job. Although I still dont want to apply for job yet, but yeah I want to finish my undergraduate degree soon, increase my academic writing skill, enrich my knowledge, then apply for master degree. Thats a better plan.
So, here I am.
Making priority means you have to sacrifice something in return. But somehow, I do believe that God already have a better plan for me.
New journey is waiting.
I will be home by the middle of March.
