Let's get the obvious out of the way first: I have been absent from this blog for a while - a long while. For that, I owe an apology to Thania, who has been wonderful about keeping up posting despite her busy schedule.
I didn't know what to write, since a lot of things I went through was pretty much the same as I've written about before. I finished my honours in Psychology in December (with relative success considering I only suffered a minor breakdown during the year) and then went through yet another bout of existential crisis. Grad school applications and job hunting - and the subsequent series of rejection - was soul-crushing. (I like to think that it wasn't necessarily me that employers didn't like, but the fact that I required sponsorship to get a working visa. Still, rejection is rejection.)
Anyway, I am back home in Indonesia. It's hot and humid, the internet is slow, and the public transport is unreliable and largely unsafe. The upside? I've been getting job interviews. I haven't received any job offer yet, but if nothing else, it has been a great boost of confidence. Maybe I am employable after all. Also, I am home with family, and it's nice not being the one worrying about bills for now. Plus, I have access to all of my favourite food again, which is always a good thing.
Basically, despite the disappointments, things are looking up, and I am hopeful again. :) This is my official return to this blog, and I'm going to do my best to actually be consistent with it. Wish me luck <3
