A year ago I took days off and traveled to Singapore and Malaysia. Feeling in total misery and hopeless because one of the Scholarship I applied in 2015 was failed. The main reason why I felt sad because I knew I didn’t give my best shot. I felt disappointed because I let myself failed. Drowning in a total sadness, I asked my friends not to mentioned about my scholarship progress and try to enjoy the journey. For me the trip itself was for my self-healing before I prepare another plan for my future scholarship.
Today, I just received my final score for IELTS test. Honestly, this is my third IELTS test this year. First was on April for my Australia Awards application. Second IELTS, few months after that, as a part of Joint Selection Team (JST) Interview of Australia Awards. And the third, and thanks God it’s the last for this year, 2 weeks ago.
The result is beyond my expectation but the most important thing, it’ll secure my place in the University. Alhamdulilah.
Looking back to the previous months, I finally can smile. After failed to attempt several scholarships and finally reach into this point, I just want to say thank you to myself. For the hard-work, for not giving up, for always be stubborn, and for the wonderful journey. 2016 was awesome!!! Let’s fight for 2017 & 2018 because it will be more challenging. ❤
I also would like to say million thanks to the people who helped me through this hardship. Family, friends, new friends and strangers. You know who you are. May God reply your kindness with thousand loves and bless. ❤ ❤
And now, it’s official, h-30 days before I leave this country. Bismillah.
