I had a super fun, exhausting yet thrilling day today and I kind of enjoyed it.
I don't know why, but I've not been quite a good person in the past few weeks.
I realize that I've been so temperamental - I don't know why, but I easily get mad nowadays. I pretty much understand that's not a good thing, not only for me but also for the people around me. I've been a jerk last Sunday, not directly to someone specific, but I was so disappointed and fed up with the nonsense traffic in Jakarta. Because it was Sunday, people. There shouldn't BE traffic, I was driving for 2 hours to get to a place that I usually reach in 20 minutes! How nuts is that? Thanks go to my sister: she reminded me to stay calm and yeah, what's the point of being angry when it doesn't even change anything.
A friend of mine gave me and my sister a letter. I just found it 2 days ago and she wrote it on her birthday in March, which is 2 months ago.
Do you ever believe that coincidence is really not a coincidence after all?
Have you ever heard about "age is no guarantee of maturity"? And do you agree? Well, I do.
There's an Indonesian actor that I adore so much. It started in 2011, when I watched a movie titled 'The Raid' with my friends. I really really liked the main actor, his name is Iko Uwais. Well, Iko wasn't a big actor back then, the movie made him more famous because he was so cool and his silat (Indonesian traditional martial art) was so great! After seeing the movie, I made up my mind that if I ever meet Iko, I'll take a picture with him.
This is a story of Akiko who lives in Japan...
I am currently 6 months pregnant, I am 25 and found out that I have HIV when I went to my first OBGYN appointment. I just got married a month prior to the man of my dreams. When they told us my whole world stopped, I couldn't breathe. I looked at my husband and my eyes filled with tears. I was petrified – for my life and the life of my unborn child. My husband immediately held me close while I cried. He asked to be tested as well. His test came back negative. Thank god! But then I thought for sure he was going to leave me... And I wouldn't blame him.
This morning, I got a message on my family Whatsapp group. My aunt just sent us a chain message that told us to be careful with imported can foods from Thailand. Because it is reported that some irresponsible people put their HIV infected blood into the can. There was a link to an article about it as well.
How was May treating you so far? I'm OK, but I'm also totally broke this month.
How was your day? I spent my day splendidly.
I met up with my close friend, actually we spent the day together and I really enjoyed it, even loved it. This is how the story goes... As I grew up, there were many friends of mine who settled for more and yeah they will marry the man of their dreams soon enough. My dearest friend is going to marry her boyfriend, everything seems OK except for one thing... They have different religions. That might be OK in some places out there, but not in Indonesia.
