January Highlights

Since I was actually had no big holiday plan for February, I first thought my days will be spent by watching movies, napping, reviewing cafes, and blogging. Turned out this is the month in which I spent most energy at, so that I am in a rush for making my promised post; The Monthly Highlights. So here it is, my January Highlights

on movies

La La Land

“This is movie for dreamers,” was what Emma said at her winning speech on Golden Globe. Despite labeled by many as overhyped movie, I really think you should go watch them. Fr me, this movie made it into list of my favorite movies of all time. Maybe it was overhype because Damien Chazelle successfully brought back musicals into movies or maybe because City of Stars, its soundtrack, will stuck into your head for a while.

How Do You Think – CHEEZE

Another song that is analogous with an old jeans, you can never go wrong with them. This piece from CHEEZE is perfect for your lazy weekends, commuting time, or even at times you want to hear sad song. For me, this song depicts what relationship is; you’re wondering what your partner up to, or questioning how will this end. Lastly, I think it’s quite odd or funny or I am not sure what is this really about, but as far as I know 어떻게 생각해 is used when you want to ask “What do you think” instead of How do you think.

on life

A lot happened at January, I surely said this every month. On new year’s eve, I spent it with my Indonesian friends (and at this rate I count as family, I guess) and the day after I went to Tanya’s house to celebrate new year in Chinese way; we made dumplings and I watched Chinese New Year Show that is aired every year in China and we watched movies and drama until late night. In January I actually spent most of the time studying for finals and actually went through my finals, thankfully, successfully. By now I received all the score results, I am not sure whether I really did good or it was just most of my professors finally realized the level of difficulties they gave at exams, or in short it was just them being kind. Because I seriously think I didn’t do my best at this exam period. This time was the System Analysis exam where I went to toilet in the middle of exam for maybe 15 minutes? because I had an extreme stomachache and therefore couldn’t finish my Knapsack programming problem. Another time is when I forgot to bring calculator minutes before Advanced Calculus exam.

2016 : Things I did, Places I went to.

I officially finished my semester after enduring a two-week of final exam roller-coaster ride, which marked another step of my academic journey. Sometimes I feel sad and anxious and insecure about it because many of my friends are going to finish college this year, but most of the time I’m not. Moving to Japan was the hardest, but then again I think the best decision that I made, or God has just turned it that way. What I’d really like to point out is my life in here has been full of surprises and experience that I never thought of before. I think I will have a whole note about studying abroad in a different post. Here I’m just going to list all memorable places and things I did during 2016.
