I'm HOME (excited, tired, tensions, get burned, and mosquitos bite me!)
I'm home now!
In my room at Jl. Damar no. 22 Makassar.
My life came to me faster.
My USA year suddenly felt just like a dream in the mid-day!
I had a very good time with my friends during DC orientation. Met with exchange students from different countries, had a interesting trip to Indonesian Embassy, amazing talent show, and also WILD DANCE NIGHT. My head was hurt, a little bit and I kinda want to throw up :D.
Then I hafta sit on the airplane (Lufthansa) from DC to Frankfrut for 7 hours. Plus we waited for transit (another 6 hours!).
Then we flight again by Malaysian Airlines, from Frankfrut to Kuala Lumpur (12 hours), and had a little shopping in Malaysia when we still waiting (2 hours).
When we arrived on Soekarno-Hatta, the Bina Antarbudaya Indonesia came to take us. We had another orientation for 3 days in Jakarta. After a long-tired discussion and disable mind to received the lecturer, i got a ticket back to Makassar at 5.00 PM. My cousin that live in Jakarta then pick me up.
Now, i'm here. I called some of my friends to let them now that I'm here. But I told them not to tell anyone else coz I want to make a little bit surprise. My family was so surprise to see me. They talk a lot about my hair. And ask about my experience, they said my skin looked darker. And i said that's normal; it it summer in United States, and I just came back from my North Carolina trip.
Maybe i still need some times to adjust back again. I tried to be polite but my mom and my sister keep attacking me w/ hard words and things like 'You are in indonesia now, not in USA anymore', because I just responded their bad habbit. But i hope my family will understand, coz i need their support too. But my dad told me that I'm becoming more polite and like to say thank you (but kind of ignorance too, especially when we were talk about topics that I dont like).
I wish everything is gonna be alright...
I miss USA. But I hafta force myself to 'GET REAL'.
