Hello everyone! (I am saying this in almost every blog post that I usually make) As you know, this blog is being my public diary for such a long time. I write almost every single thing here at my blog, just in case in the future I decided to look back again. I don't easily want to erase my life journey because I easily forget small things (maybe my brain is not that strong enough? hahaha, just kidding). I know that I'm pretty confident about my ability in memorize things. But as an ordinary human, sometimes... I forget things that I've done too. That's the reason why I really need to post this story up to my blog.

Comeback to the main topic, the reason that I want to make this blog post is not about telling you guys an excuse. I am not being an active blogger for the past few months because this semester I have so many things to do. Right now, I'm on the 6th semester and no need a long time facing my final year in university. Times go so fast, it seems like yesterday I wrote my experience here at my blog about my struggle, happy memories, and things or projects that I made. Just in one year or less, I will graduate from this university. The point is in this year especially when my 6th semester is going to end soon, I am going to go to overseas.

What am I doing? I am going to have volunteering job overseas to teach foreign language and culture in Bangkok, Thailand (but I am going to live in Rural Area). I am going to go on June 30th 2016 and going back home on August 18th 2016. Yes, I am going to go to Thailand during my summer break / when my 6th semester is going to be ended. I am an International Relations student. I don't particularly have an international experience to work overseas. I need to get my international level certificate to improve my CV and I can apply to a nice company / getting a nice job in the future. ASEAN Community does affect me a lot and I am going to pop out from my comfort zone to face it.

I already experienced working in teams, certain companies, designers, or even media offices, but still I don't want to risk my life after I graduated in the future. I really want to have a proper experience with foreign country, foreign people, new society, and new culture. I already did travel to Thailand before, I even posted several photos from my last visit to Thailand. It was probably in 2011 or something. It was for holiday and I was coming there with my family. Now, this is my only chance to go overseas without my family and challenge myself. 

Honestly, I do feel afraid if something doesn't work out. But at least, I try my best. I did apply to AIESEC in my campus for Global Citizen Program. I got interviewed from my LC (Local Committee) in Binus University. I passed the interview session with a good score though, thanked God. I also signed a contract with them and apply to other LC overseas. I applied to Chulalongkorn University in Thailand. I am getting interested with Thailand national project called Sawasdee Project. I also watched several vlogs on youtube and did research about the university. I found out that university's one of the best public university in Thailand based on modern educational system.

What is my job? My job is basically teaching kids (7 - 18 years old) English and also talk about foreign cultures to make them be more open minded about the world. That sounds pretty interesting to be honest. I am going to live in rural area (because I am going to teach in rural area) with my host family. I hope that I can get a nice host family and new family there. Rural area in Thailand is not that bad comparing to Indonesia rural area tho. This makes me realize how Indonesian young generation also need to improve our own education and living standards.

Actually the project is going to be ended on August 13th 2016, but I extend my stay in Thailand until August 18th 2016. I want to experience Indonesia's Independence Day in foreign country. Probably, I can go to Indonesian Embassy there to celebrate it together with fellow Indonesian people who stay in Bangkok, Thailand.

If you want to know about budgeting and how much money that I prepared for this project, do not hesitate to ask me via email :

I am going to post some vlogs on my youtube channel, so you can know how I live and stay there later!
