It's been awhile since I write on this blog and I apologize for so. As soon as I arrived here in USA, my life was upside down. It is nothing like what I had back in Surabaya-Indonesia. This post is not a post of rants, but a post of gratefulness and joy...
When I first arrived here, I am lucky to have a friend kind enough to keep my room key and pick me up. He was the one who helped me preparing the stuff I needed to buy and settling down. The first week was busy and I didn't feel the homesickness everyone was expecting me to feel. I was also adjusting with the time and dynamic weather. However, as days went by, I was bored since my school started a few weeks after I arrived and I had nothing to do. It was actually a blessing in disguise that my friend took me and his friends for a quick tour in San Francisco. I was devastated by someone's behavior towards me, but the others were too kind and fun to ignore.
Slowly but surely, I was homesick. The second to third week were tough. I missed home - my family, friends, and dearest one. I know it was time for me to move on and to let go. So, I tried to keep myself busy by rearranging the whole class schedule I made before I came here. It sure was exhausting and I believe my parents back home was scared as hell as I was when I didn't get enough credits. Thank God I got the classes I need right at the end of the add-in date.
The past couple of weeks were filled with assignments, hanging out, meeting new friends, and more. This place started to feel like home. I have had my ups and downs, but the light is always there when the darkness comes.
