My first snow in Trondheim! Winter has truly arrived and I'm trying to enjoy it as much as possible (and hopefully not getting dreaded by it later). Well, since it's going to last for quite a while up here, might as well enjoy every part of it!

We took a short trip to Verona from Venice to get a break from the city. I was mesmerised by the city. It was really beautiful. We stopped by the bridge on the side of Castelvecchio and enjoyed a bit of the sunset.
We went inside Castelvecchio, a restoration masterpiece by Carlo Scarpa. The simplicity of his delicate design and material selection is amazing.
Last but not least, we went to Casa di Giuletta to meet Juliet and had a little experience on trying our luck ; )

The campus orientation week started earlier this week. We had some meetings, games, barbeques, and today is another game called "Trondheim Games". We were given some challenges, questions, checkpoints, in which if we can answer the questions, challenges and find the check points we will get points for our team. It was really fun! But, the highlight of today was meeting with other Indonesian families here in Trondheim and celebrating our Independence Day. We went to Kristiansen Fort and then the famous Gamle Bybro and took family pictures!
Another extra highlight, congratulations for Indonesian Mixed Doubles Badminton in Rio Olympics for giving Indonesia first gold medal in the 2016 olympics just right at our Independence Day! Best gift!

Checking in from Trondheim, Norway. I arrived a few days ago, and since then it has been cloudy and rainy and windy. But today (in a late summer) it's sunny all day. Me and my friends decided to stroll around campus and up to a nearby lake. On the walks, tt hits me on how lucky I am to be here. The sceneries are (well, so far) a feast to my eyes. It's really something that I thought I'd only see in books. Hoping for a great journey ahead!

Lately our new hangout includes bringing paper, pen, watercolor paints, brushes, and board games. Yesterday, we spent the afternoon drawing and me sort-of-teaching calligraphy. Haven't been a good teacher as I forgot the basic strokes and I really don't know how to teach. But well, it was a fruitful and fun hangout.
And today I manage to sketch out a couple things, that might follow up to something. C'mon strong-will and dedication, kinda need you. Ha!

It was quite not the ordinary day. Fluctuations. Mood swings. All because of fail plans. We, humans, should not make any plans at all, shouldn't we?
Then I remember this one song. Listening to it, I felt better. Then I remember another cure for my mood, calligraphy practice.
So to share a little bit of my happiness, and to know that you're not alone surviving in this world. I present you, this.

... Cause I might be dreaming. Pop Etc's soundcloud account just "loved" a cover of their song that I did probably a year ago. And why am I making such a big deal? Because, IT IS!
Okay, getting back to a big grin for the day!
