Finally I can do blogging again. The internet in my boarding house was very lame, that’s why I can’t blog as much as before. So, last Thursday on the 25th of February, I celebrated my 22nd birthday. 22 is a big number for me. In this year I suppose to be more mature than last years. But being mature is not as easy as turning your palms. I feel it’s so hard to be responsible with my own life. It’s so hard to be an independent person and not always blame other people for your own failure.
On my birthday, I contemplated. I asked myself : Do I have already acted like a 22 year old girl? The answer is : I haven’t but I’ll try to act as my age. I try not to be childish, although it’s way soooo hard to change this personality because I’ve already enjoyed being childish.
I thank God because in this 22 year of my life HE has given me chances to do a lot of things though not extraordinary things. I’ve been in some situations where I needed to make choices. In many times, I choosed the right things but sometimes I also made some wrong decisions. Yeah, that’s experiences.
As usual, I also have some birthday wishes. First, I want to be a better and a tougher person. It sounds so cliche, doesn’t it? But, in my opinion, as long as we live in this world we always have to learn to be a better person. I called it an unstoppable learning. I want to be a tougher person because I feel that I’m too afraid to face challenges. Sometimes, I don’t want to go out from my comfort zone. I know this is not good. That’s why I want to change it. The second wish is I hope I can finish my study this year and continue pursuing my dreams to study in Europe.
Last but not least, thank you so much for my friends who sent me birthday wishes through text message, twitter, and Facebook. Thank you so much. God bless you all! 🙂
ps : I remember 2 good quotes from my 2 besties
first from my mom : ella, you are the eldest daughter in our family. so please be mature. please realize that you’re already 22 years old. don’t be such like a child, ella!
the second one is from my friend, dita : life is too precious to be complained about. we’ll always have problems in our life and we have to face them, not to avoid them.
