Graduated, English, Spanish, Weight Loss...and some more stuffs

Phew… it’s been quite some time since the last time I posted something in this blog.

I officially hold a Bachelor Degree in Economics! That’s a huge relieve in my part (and my whole family as well). It’s been a rocky journey with problems here and there but I went through it all anyway. It feels like a huge stone is finally out of the way. Though, I am very well aware that this is the end of something old and the beginning of something new. Job hunting! That’s a pretty daunting part. I mean, I have worked before and I also already have several interviews which some I nailed and the others, well… It is scary indeed. I have nailed several interviews and also failed at some, but it didn’t stop me from keep trying. I have a goal and I won’t let my fear to stand in my way.

Earlier this year (April), I achieved 583 for TOEFL score. I wanted a 600, but 583 ain’t bad. I’ll try again next year and study harder, of course.

As for my Spanish, I have been listening to a podcast on iTunes and it helps me a lot in the matter of enriching my basic Spanish and how each words shift forms based on who we’re using it to. You guys can check it out on iTunes, it’s called “Spanish Pod 101” or you can directly visit the website:

Since I moved to Makassar in 2010, I have gained tons of weight. Believe me, the South Sulawesi foods are all scrumptious and fatty (no wonder I gained so much weight). I was 55kg in 2010 and now I reached 78kg last month (the heaviest weight I ever reached). Some of my clothes aren’t fit anymore and it’s bothersome since those are my favorites. I wanted to change the way I eat, the way I live my everyday life; so I joined Gold’s Gym (yes, we have Gold’s Gym in Indonesia too, you know lol). I have lost 5kg so far and I have been eating extra healthy too. It feels good. I also use the service of a Personal Trainer for 3 solid months so that I can shape my body better and healthier hence the weight lost itself. It’s been pretty hard for the first few weeks. I feel like giving up sometimes, but then I thought of the struggle that I had to go through to reach where I am right now. And since I feel really good about myself for having such better and healthier life style, I think I’m gonna keep this up ineradicably.

My oldest sister was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis last month and I was bummed. I mean, it’s terrifying to know that your loved one is being diagnosed with such menace disease. We’re still looking out for second opinion though, and we hope that the first diagnose was inaccurate (one can only hope).

I bought a new camera! It’s a waterproof camera so I can use it the next time I go on a diving trip (I hope soon!). It's Nikon Coolpix 110, there's a built-in GPS and Wifi which can be synced with my iPhone! How awesome is this camera? I can’t wait to get into the ocean and explore what it has to offer.

That’s all for now. I tried to make it as short as possible and as informative as it can possibly be.

I’ll see you when I see you!
