Welcome Back to School

Sorry for the late update, readers… Many things happened during my hiatus, but I’m just going to tell the important ones this time.

Guess what? We had just been off from holiday last 7th January, and we were to face the third try out just the week after! Instead of our school, this time the TO is from the sub-district. But although it’s from outside of the school, somehow I found it easier than the ones from our school ;). Like usual, the sequence of the try out subjects are Indonesian, English, Maths and Science. The only thing causing this time’s tests to be different is the sudden holiday on the last day, which was Science.

So here’s how it went on. I was awakened by the noise of the super heavy rain that morning. Actually I’m not sure whether it is my normal-waking-up-hour or not, since the sky was pitch dark. I was still sleepy so I continued sleeping. It took some time until I was really awake. At the same time I realized it’s still pouring heavily outside. I quickly turned on my phone and directly received a message from Erna, announcing there’s no school for that day due to flood. It was then proven that many areas in Jakarta were “drowned” by high mass of rainwater. What a misfortune…

Aside from that, there’s a silly happening last Friday. Like what I’ve been saying all the time, Friday is always fun :D! In my school, every morning students take turns to write quotes on the board. So during break time, the boys did a prank by erasing some words and letters till it formed an amusing line (that’s also the habit of my old friends :P). At that time it formed the phrase which means “big disasters are caused by Hani”. “Hani” here is very close to Hanny’s name. Seems that Ananta found it very silly, because he couldn’t stop laughing at it. On the other hand Hanny didn’t see anything funny with it, so she finally gave him a blow :D!

Am I Enjoying Things Much Better?

Who did ever expect that this holiday wouldn’t be as boring as usual? Well, “boring” here refers to condition when there isn’t much to do. So back to the main topic, although I don’t go on any excursion with my relatives, I figure out that spending more time at home isn’t always boring. Perhaps it’s because I have planned some activities for these days? Not really certain, but unlike usual, these days I’m studying matematika for the coming try outs and most importantly, national exams. You know what—odd for me to do such thing on holidays, since I never did it before :P!

I also spend my time at home by playing Harvest Moon—with my sister, of course. Seems like we both have a similar taste for video games. Before downloading HM, she had asked for Plants vs Zombies from her friend and we were busy with it for days. But it didn’t last so long since my sister—whom I secretly address as “game master” for her skill in finishing a game before me—reached the last stage only in a number of days! After beating the final boss, she began to wonder if only there’s a harder game for this holiday… I also find it boring to play the same game over and over. So I totally agree with her assumption about playing Pokémon and HM, making me eager to find the solution.

That’s the story behind having another game for holiday. Speaking of Pokémon, recently we just downloaded Pokémon Emerald. Once again, many thanks to Visual Boy Advance that we can play our favourite game :D!

Beside playing those games, we also learned to make anime papercrafts. My sister had finished making one and is half-done with the second, while I’m still in the first template :P… In return for not joining my relatives’ trip, I spend most of the holiday with my family. We went to the mall, and of course, bookstore!

I just realized that this holiday enchants me more than usual. I wonder if I’m enjoying things much better ;)? Anyway, happy new year 2013, readers!
