So!Here we go again, another year to congratulate.
I decided to post another post (and will always) to reminisce the growing up of my very first college friend Dwi Aini Bestari.
Let’s start from a wrap up in 2016. You finally decided to give a shot on LPDP selection, well yeah taking master has always been part of your dreams. Starting with IELTS preparation (I still remember you brought course book when you had sleepover at my place (such a good student you are). Handling the recommendation letter, doing the health check up, having interview and many other things. And YOU GOT THE SCHOLARSHIP! couldn’t be more thrilled to have one of my best friend living her dream!!
But good thing doesn’t always followed by another good things. Sometimes the bad one comes up. I’m actually forget the exact time, it just somehow you broke up with your boyfie — I’ll end it up here (this might be considered as privacy issues 😛). But you dealt with the hardship, you moved with your life. As I said, if you guys are meant to be, you’ll be. And now you guys are! I always respect every decision you made (how could I not ?! LOL). I believe you ‘re mature enough to be responsible for each path you take, and every little thing you do.
Doing study while managing to be in long distance relationship was sucks (I bet you had hard time while doing this). I am super relieve you survived the distance! That was prove if you guys are commit to the relationship (again, I’m so glad you met the right guy — I hope he is). I believe relationship is a piece of work done by great team who cherish each happiness and comfort each sadness. A way to go girl!
Adapting to live in foreign country for a girl who loves home very much wasn’t easy thing for sure. Gladly, Utrecht seems to be right temporary home for you. Yea I know, sometimes you had those bad days, but who’s not? Since you got the privilege, you have to experienced a bit struggle to be fair haha!
Studying abroad (esp. taking master) also means that you had to adapt with the methods, way of thinking, language, pile of reading list. Again, it’s all in the past! Though the expectation sometimes defeated you, your hope betrayed you. Who knows you earned the degree now, and that’s all that matter.
Even though I envy every IG post of europe-travelling stuffs, it cant replace my happiness to see you growing up and living your life to the fullest (and that’s what friend for!) — almost choked up typing this. A year ahead is completely blank pages you need to filled up! Life just starts here. Go checked all your bucket list!! I’m wishing you all well. You know how much I cherish your existence in this world, so don’t be sick. Sending all my best wishes for you, thank you for (still) letting me witness each journey you have. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! can’t wait to another post of this 😛.
