It's 4.25 pm and I'm sitting here in my favorite cafe, 17 kilometers away from home. I'm on my way home but it's not night yet so I decided to visit here in order to enjoy Jakarta in the afternoon.
This cafe is my runway whenever I want to be alone. Besides I can see many things from here, being alone allows me to re-discover myself, contemplating about what steps I have taken in my life and what steps I'm going to take in the near future.
I don't know how many novels I have finished in this place. And thus, I learned diverse types of Jakarta people only by sitting nicely in this cafe; young business men with their secret conversation, old ladies who smoke, high school students eating fast food while operating their latest smart phone, and so forth.
That's why I love to write here, this place helps me getting lots of inspirations and ideas, plus accompanied by my favorite cafe late (plus 3 sachets of sugar, always).
Well, let me throw back to 2013. So many things have come up. Every single thing that happened in 2013, the ups and downs: finishing semester, leading the organization, falling in love, falling out of love, losing a friend. What I have achieved, and what I haven't.
What I have done and what I haven't.
Above all, I'm feeling like, 2013 gave me lots of lessons to be learned. I was once a very selfish girl; I used to think only my business and ignoring others'. But thank God I have so many super friends who are always beside me, notice me, support me, and remind me who I actually am. I'm a much better person now, I'm feeling so blessed and maturer than ever, and much closer to the almighty God.
I listed my mistakes I did in 2013, then I pick the lessons learned. And entering 2014, I told myself that I might stumbled upon my mistakes but I have to move on from every shortcoming.
Well I did.
However, I'm still the same person, I'm still me, I'm still an insecure and anxious girl, and I'm still dying to be a journalist.
I won't worry to face the new fresh year, I am ready for the next challenges of my life. And I am prepared for the new semester. I even seem very ready to start my thesis if only I could skip this semester.
But before that, I would like to enjoy my holiday. More novels to read and more movies to watch. I would like to breathe more fresh air before back struggling in the sixth semester.
Holiday is the time to get back meeting up with old friends, that's to refresh my mind. And of course, I have to meet my best friend before she leaves for South Korea for a one year exchange at Yonsei University.
Well, it's 5.32 pm already and the cafe late is up, and I'm feeling sick already with two lovebirds sitting next to me, so I'm better go home now before my mom sends me another message asking where I am.
Catch ya later!.
