Countdown 3 more days till I’m going home back to Indonesia. Oh, how I miss my room, friends, food, family. Especially my mom, I missed our friday movie night and our long “mother-daughter” gossip time, and believe it or not, I missed her lectures on everything. I missed my dad’s home cook meals, his cooking are the best!
And since I’m abroad studying, my brother is the only child at home. My parents have been spoiling him by buying a lot of things for hime like a new PS4 while he just got a new samsung s4 a week ago! On top of that, he got a new samsung watch! Can you believe it?! How crazy is that? It’s no surprise my dad would allow it cause he’s always give us what we want, but my mom? Wow! He must thank me!
I’ve been thinking on what to buy for my mom. She’s asking for a gift from Shanghai. But not only that I have a limited budget, also she’s kinda picky on things. If I ought to buy her clothes, the cutting and size would be difficult to determine. Well, she likes scarfs. But since it’s winter here, all scarfs are think and chunky while we do not have winter in Indonesia. It’s hot as hell there! That’s only thing that makes me not wanting to come home. I’ve bought my dad a bottle of whiskey and a new t-shirt for my little brother.
Things here are not quite bad aside from the ridiculous system that was just implemented this semester. We got exemption tests before entering courses like Chinese, English and Maths. If we pass the tests, we got to a higher level of that subjects and got all the credits below our level, or that’s how it’s used to be.. Now we need to pay RMB 150 or USD 25 per credit. I have 28 credits in total just for Chinese! And I have a total of 35 credits that I have to pay! If you’re wondering why don’t I just talk to the academic department, I have! And they won’t listen even if I have explained that it would not be fair for freshmen. So unbelievable! Aside from that, I think things are going fine. Well, I’m not sure I’m going to pass economics, but I think things are going to be fine.
