Aside from the award, I have things to share to you girls and maybe, can you gimme some opinions regarding my “confusions”?
As maybe some of you have known, I just turned 17 this year. I’m now in my last year of high school, meaning next year I really have to go to university to continue my study. And this is what my confusions are all about. Questions like “where will you go” or “what subject will you take” is too common for me lately but not very depressing (already), but what really wandered around both in my heart and my mind is:
Will you be able to fulfill all the required terms & conditions?
As for my grades and the scores I got during my previous years, they were all neither bad nor excellent—all around 8.5 like so. I honestly admit that I accepted some letters of offering to universities which affiliates to my school about the free registration fee and they were only issued to around 50-80 people out of the total 400 students of my batch, but none of the universities have interested me to go in there. My friends kept telling me for not being stupid and threw all the chances I'd got just to go for something bigger and maybe, unreachable. I dream for something bigger and…well, am I wrong for doing so? This is the case one, by the way.
Jakarta was on the top of my destination list when it comes to choosing universities, but suddenly it was announced that one government-funded university in Hong Kong was about to come to my school and doing one private presentation, and it was so exclusive even to join the presentation you gotta sign up first. I signed up and attended the presentation with all excitement, the butterflies on my stomach were all wilder than ever—wilder than the moment when I saw cute guys around, seriously—and my brain entered the clown & circus mode. You mustn't wonder how much I love Hong Kong from the people to the country itself from the posts about them here. I honestly say to you here, just right after I got home from HK it’s like I badly wanted to live like forever in that country. And that’s how all the confusions started. Case two:
How do I happen to be granted a scholarship there?
My score met the minimum requirements, but the information I gained from the website told me quickly as non-local applicants are not to be granted any financial assistance. Is it true? The living expenses in Hong Kong is sort of…crazy, especially for the accommodation there. The tuition fee in Polytechnic University—yep, that’s what I was talking about in these last 2 paragraphs—is not really expensive for the international student like me, but it’s definitely much more than what I have to spend for my school here. If there were a chance for scholarship, how can I not try to apply?
The information about the scholarship is still blurred until now, I don’t really know whom to ask even my school claims to be their affiliate too. Sending our students there had been done for the last 3 years, but I’m not sure if I can really get 100% scholarship there. God…this is the case three.
I know I have nothing to be afraid of actually, as trying can never be wrong—moreover it becomes a truly important moment of life, eh—and there’s nothing wrong to dream big, right?
I wasn’t actually over some famous names of universities, I’m more after what I can get and do right after I finish my studies. And I choose Hong Kong now for my destination, but only if I can get the scholarship because living there is nothing I can afford right now L I wish to have a career there so bad, and I think to continue my study there would be a great stepping stone for that dream of mine!
After a big psywar both in my head and heart, here what I’m going to do next:
1. I want to apply to the PolyU Hong Kong and do the interview—whether I fail or succeed, I will try my best anyway.
2. I have also an admission backups here in Indonesia, and still I choose to try my best to get the scholarship here (in UPH Jakarta too!)
Of the things above…you know now I’m a big dreamer. I dream big, but nothing is too big or too impossible until you try and pray hard for it. No dreams will come real without any actions and prayers. The confusions are actually no needed and they lead you to self-destruction, and yes I’ve been through that phase. I talked to a lot of people about my crisis and soon I realized I should’ve worried over everything. Now all I want to do is all the best I can do, whether it’s to do interviews or to write some essays. Wish me luck, kay!
