Several months ago, when i was at home, I had nothing to do and i felt so bored.
Usually I had many activities before, but after i quit from my job and left Jogja, I only had few things to do. I do have an education center in Lubuklinggau, yet, at that time was a long holiday period. So, I went to a room where i keep my collection books and tried to find an interesting book to read. Yet, I found nothing. I have read most of my books for more than twice. Suddenly i saw a small blue book among those books. It is not a story book but my diary. It was a diary that i used to write when i was in senior high school. It was fun to read the stories of my teenager, it reminded me of my friends and stories about “friend” that i had a crush on =). There were only few stories actually, so i finished it only in a short time. Yet, when i wanted to put it back I saw there was still a story in the middle of the book. It’s my letter for my late mother, then i found interesting sentences there, i told to my mom that i wish i could study abroad, in uk, someday. Wow, it suprised me, I forgot that i ever wrote that and I read it when i just read the announcement that i got a scholarship and have a chance to study abroad, specifically in uk! Actually, it’s still like an unbelievable news for me! At that time, it’s such a very big dream for me to study abroad since i’m from a small town in south sumatera and i’m not from a rich family.. I had to work to support my life during my study in my undergraduate program. However, when i read those sentences, I realized that I already had that dream since a long time ago and I believe that We Can Get Our Dream if We Really Try Hard! It made me remember what ‘Arai’ said in Andrea Hirata’s book “bermimpilah maka Tuhan akan memeluk mimpi-mimpimu..”
So, GO.. GET UR DREAM!! ^_^
