A future Aerospace Engineer.
Few hours ago, when I was supposed studying for tomorrows midterm exam, I ended up looking at pictures taken few months ago in various events. It may not be an artistic photograph, since some of it is over exposure, but what makes it special is the story, moments, and feelings shared behind it. Another special thing about it is that several months ago, I did the same thing with now, looking back at old pictures, reminiscing the good times, remembering how happy I was at those times (in the pictures). And now, here I am, doing the same thing, reminiscing the good times by looking at old pictures. So probably, I might do the same thing in the next few month, reminiscing the good times by nowadays pictures!
Got it? So what I’m trying to say here, is that I’m happy all of these time, and am really glad I freeze the moment for a while by taking a picture of it. It’s like this, 2 months ago I was looking at old pictures and think how fun that time was. And the next 2 months, I looked at the pictures taken from 2 months ago, and again, remembering how fun that time was. And it repeats again and again, until today. So that mean I’m happy all of these time right? Hahaha ;D
However, even though not all of those happy memories could be repeated again, we shouldn’t feel sad about it. Well it is a natural thing, to feel sad about it, but just like Dr. Seuss’s quote, “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
So, my other advice is, take your camera with you! The best camera is the one you always bring with you. Snap every fun, unforgettable, sweet, hilarious, any kinds of moments, since it may not happen twice! Because….

I think I really need to start righting down a list of goals I need to achieve in my life. I dont know why this idea came so sudden to me, somehow I just think our live is gonna be more fun, like there’s always something to seek everyday, if we do this kinda thing. Aha! Maybe I know why now. Maybe…it’s because just one year ago I really wanted to go to Seoul for some reason, so I tried to find any opportunity to go there without using my parents or my own money, like by internship or seminar. But after 5 months trying, there’s no reply from companies I gave my email about the internship thingy to. So I just stopped trying and focusing on college.
But somehow, I got an opportunity for a 1 month exchange in Seoul. Wow. Simply just WOW. Briefly, it was just because from my Korean friend status message’s facebook, I knew she’s coming to Bandung. Then she introduced me to her brother’s-friend’s-father who is visiting ITB for a month in the same department as my major is.
And right now, here I am, righting this post in Seoul, in my last hour here. So much things happened here. Looking back in the past, exactly 1 year ago, really wanted to go to Seoul, and now…here I am. In Seoul. Just never expected it really happens THIS fast.
So whats my biggest goal in life? I have soooo much things I wanna do, but for now, I’m just gonna right down my biggest goal. I’m not saying that I’ve been travelling a lot, since I have a friend who’ve been to 56 countries, but anyway, after experiencing travelling to some places far away from hometown, and meeting new people, and also doing some things I’ve never done before, somehow makes me more open-mind and makes me wanna travel more and more. This world is really large, and if you keep staying in your comfort zone, than you could lose so many fun experience you could never get by just staying in the same place. So this is it, my biggest achievement in life, travel around the world. To make it more specific, at least I have to been to all continents in the world. And quoting from someone I forgot…”The world is a book, and those who don’t travel only read one page”. And this is who I am. A wanderlust. And I’d love to make memories and friendship all around the world.
How about you?
