A moment to remember...

Hi there. I am indeed so bad in starting a blog post, aren't I? So.. let's just go straight to the point.

March 31, 2011.
It was Thursday, if I am not mistaken. My dad was picked me up from IEC (my English course place). It was midnight already, around 10 p.m. I reached home at 10.30 p.m. and still found out that my home's living room was so bright. The lamps were still on and as I opened the gate to let my dad's car in, I heard and saw there were 3 Catholic nuns and my mom still talking and laughing out loud. The nuns suddenly came closer to me, hugged me and said 'congratulations' and I was shock, I didn't even reply their hugs and of course I was so confused. 'What had happened? I didn't even join any competitions, so why did they congratulate me?'

I got inside my home without even put my shoes off. I was too tired and wanted to have a sit first just to relax my body especially my shoulders because my bag was so full with books! Yeah, if you happened ever went to Catholic school, I bet you had the same experience as mine. Brought like 2kgs (sometimes more than it) load inside the bag to school. Crazy. I know.

Mom came closer to me with a big smile, shook my hand, and hugged me so tight and said (again, a word that confusing me) 'congratulations ya kak, mom can't say anything. i am so happy.' Then, mom gave me a huge brown envelope with lots of papers inside. I went through it and found out that I got accepted at Universitas Pelita Harapan (my campus now) with 100% scholarship for 4 years (yeah! for my bachelor degree. cool?). Can you imagine that? I got 100% covered scholarship for 4 years!!!! Parents will not spend any cashes for my school fee. Even more, my scholarship also includes the 3 times meals, uniforms, Alma mater, field trips, and many other miscellaneous things. It even includes my graduation fee. How cool is that, huh?!

I didn't know how to express my happiness at that time. I was so shocked (still) and looked at dad that still stood up not far from me and he was smiling! Yes! I couldn't forget that! He was smiling, dudes!!! I knew that he had known this already, but he kept it from me! Oh yes, my dad is a good secret-keeper. Cool. God is so good, yes? :) Can't thank Jesus enough for His works upon my life. I am so blessed! ♥

And today...
Feb 6, 2013.
I am now studying Primary education at Teachers College - UPH, and I am now in my sophomore year. Four more semester to go, two more upcoming practicums are on the corner and I will face my thesis submission due date. Ahh, can't hardly wait for that time to come :') I’d like to call myself a future education practitioner. Yes, in around 2 years, I’m going to be a teacher. A teacher with her own classroom, her own students, and her new stage of life to be encountered. I’ll be dealing with my first year of teaching. I heard some experiences from some seniors, and yeah, they all sound so overwhelming :)

May God bless me for the rest of my years at Teachers College. May I learn, grow, and unite in Christ as I finish all the things that I have started here.

Have a good sleep :)
