It has been a while since I wrote an online blog. A lot of stuff happened, and somehow it is 2018 already. 2017 was interesting since it was like the Saturn Return. It is a theory that Saturn makes an orbit around all the zodiac signs and after some years it will return to its original position. When that happens, all wrong decision that a person made will come and meet them face-to-face. I feel like Saturn made this to me so I can deal with problems and mature. Fortunately, in 2017 I learned to sort out some of my issues. Not only that, but I also found all of the good (love), evil (moral decadence) and beauty (the world and all inside it). Anyway, here are some highlights of my 2017. I present them to you and my future me.
January. I went back to my homeland to attend my grandpa's funeral. I was despondent because he is one of my role models. I relieved that I can give a speech back there. Well, it wasn't a great one, but people laugh. That's important to me. Otherwise, I was also happy to meet family and some friends there.
February. I failed my exam, and I can't finish my study. I work again at Hannover. Same restaurant, same boss, same boss wannabe, almost the same colleges, but different atmosphere.
March. There was also another problem that tries to kills me that time. But some friends just look after me, and I become their "patient" for some weeks. And I accepted the fact that I'm no one's boyfriend. I went on foot to Goslar a lot, and somehow I become fulltime vegan.
April. Campuslauf. My first 10k and the trigger of my addiction to run. And I'm back to performing arts world. Thanks to the invitation from my friend at a restaurant. She invited me to see her team's performance.
May. I met my Indonesia old friends, Koko the traveler and Madu my err… Dynamic Duo xD. Koko just "deported" from one of South America's country and decided to meet Madu and me at Hamburg. So the three of us spent our time at Hafensgeburtstag. Apropos Geburtstag, I didn't forget my brother's birthday. And particular time at Filmpark Babelsberg.
June. Enjoyed my Gemini time with those guys (see picture on my Instagram). Just figured that I am in relationship xD. It was another funny story to have. This month also the time that Angklung Naq Maknya (ANM) finally have another gig.
July. A week in Hamburg wasn't enough to explore all highlights of this city. This city is always my fave.
August. Indonesia's independence day and of course mom's birthday. I also sent a birthday's gift to one of teh Yoyon's fan. I am enjoying summer. Run and swim at the lake every day.
September. Lollapalooza! One of the best time of my life. The perfect lineup, I enjoyed my favorites, got some new friends too. Special thanks to Hardut, Reza, and Dio. There was also Bundestagswahl, my first meeting with her family at their home and Pandora's Box was open.
October. I visited friends at Essen. Have a great holiday before the new semester begins.
November. Daddy's birthday yeash! I got a project at the institute. I passed my exam. Join campus's volleyball squad. I became Hardut's slave for his thesis.
December. The coldest and warmest time of the year. I traveled to Greece (so warm, the opposite of Clausthal), Berlin, Wuppertal, Bielefeld, and finally Sorsum (Elze). I enjoyed going with Maestro and his girl, x-mas with the family of my good friends. Of course, there were also friends. And I met her family again. This time a complete one, with grandfather, grandmother, uncle, auntie, nephew, cousin, etc. The Christmas presents are great too!
Hope you enjoyed your 2017 too!
