In between two islands.

So I was just asking the randomest question of the night whether he prefers me calling him Kevin or Bolon(which I never do). And he answered my quite normally, he said well, the family calls me Kevin and Bolon is for friends. This, is something I already know like the back of my hand, but I just felt like asking him this silly question. Then I asked him where I stood between the two, and we both obviously said in between, so Vinny was my answer, it’s what I call him and it’s what I will always call him no matter what I guess, but then he answered, as quoted,

"Ibarat di dunia ini cuma ada dua pulau, yang satu keluarga dan satunya lagi temen, dan kamu seorang dari pulau temen yang aku ajak jalan jalan keluar perahu berdua naik perahu tanpa mesin, karna ga akan bisa dipaksain tujuannya kemana kecuali Tuhan, diperjalanan itu banyak pelajaran yang kita ambil. Dan kalopun kita sampe di pulau temen lagi kita gapapa, dan kalo sampe di pulau keluarga itu baru luar biasaaaa.."

This made my day, haha!

Next.

Hey guys, i’m back with some emotional issues concerning the next semester due to the fact that half of the class won’t be there to experience it since a bunch of them already took off and are currently enrolled in one of the universities in Australia, so of course next semester will definitely not be my daily cup of tea. I mean the program that i’m in started out small in terms of quantity (for about 90 students) and not to mention that this program consists of six departments mashed together so on a daily basis we get separated especially after our freshman year since we no longer have combined class such as liner algebra, physics, etc. So each day I am basically stuck with the same 23 people, and I’m not saying that this is a pity, not even a little bit! But the thing is, they happen to become my comfort zone! I’m still very grateful that half of them is still in Indonesia but I just feel like a part of us has been taken away. Each of us, we have such different characters, and the studio is just going to be different without them sitting next to me laughing about the same thing or being equally stressed out as I am or being majorly sleepy too. Grr, I was never really a big fan of this long distance thing and will never be, i mean who is, right?! 

Right now, all I can do is manage to keep in touch with them because they are the people that I don’t want to lose in my life, not in this lifetime baby. And besides missing them and as much as I love UI, I want to travel so freaking badly. The pictures of them being in the cold makes me jealous! And they are also able to experience a ton of new things in this new college and meeting new people and NEW FOOD! But I guess as wonderful as that may sound, I wouldn’t want to trade the things I have now. Sure it’s fun and they’re gaining new things but of course they are leaving things behind. Me, I’ve always been a family oriented kind of girl, and if I do go to school abroad, it’s because of my dad’s job, which means the whole family comes along too, so no biggy. Which means for me I have a harder time in leaving my family behind than most of my friends. I’m not saying that I cannot go live a life on my own and be a total grown up, no, I do have that moments when I enjoy exploring things on my own, but at the end of the day, I do wish to see my family. So leaving my family and being a thousand miles away form them is definitely something I do not prefer unless it is mandatory or if it’s some kind of trip or something. Plus I have this additional little bugger of mine that I would have to leave, having a long distance relationship with him will just tear me apart, gurl! So, no.

And not to mention I have this huge responsibility of being a PKK now! Woohoo! It’s finally that time where I can give back to God and put a check mark on one of my wishlist! Besides, UI happens to be my dream, so I really can’t complain man :) I wish my friends all the best of luck, both the ones that are abroad and the ones that stay, GOOD LUCK!
