day ten: wisdom

What was the wisest decision you made this year, and how did it play out?
my wisest decision i made this year was to simply try.
i tried to apply for an exchange program. i did it although the toefl requirement that asked for was in an internet or computer score (i have the paper one instead, and i thought it would not going to be considered albeit my score is not under the requirement standard). i asked my teachers' to write me recommendation, and got them, despite their concern of me graduating late. i applied regardless of the document shipping fee, while some others may just simply need to drop their application at their international office. while applying, i was also a full-time journalism student with too many assignments, and a future delegate for an international student festival that requires me to look for sponsorships so i can fund my travel. before applying on this one, i have applied to many others - and failed.

but what i had in my mind was only a mantra, "just go ahead, there is no harm in trying."
so i did. and i am glad i did.

how did it play out?
i am now in bangkok. my exchange semester has just finished. i had the time of my life. and i am currently counting down the days to come home.
