Happy New Year 2010 to you all in the area of GMT+ (for example: Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Australia, Netherlands, and England).

It's still New Year's Eve in San Francisco.
As I said, I would wake up early this morning to wish you all a Happy New Year through facebook and messenger.
And, I made it. Yee!
I woke up before 9.00am this morning, means before 00.00am (Indonesian WIB time).

Another Happy New Year wish to you all in San Francisco will be coming up soon.
I still don't know where to go tonight.
I have two choices: either go to Embarcadero to see fireworks or go to Berkeley for a NYE party.

Let's see what's gonna happen tonight.
Time just showed 00.00am 1 hour and 10 minutes ago.
It is officially New Year's Eve in San Francisco.
I'm backing up data files from Vaio to my external HD right now -- PC sucks! Yes, it does.
I'm going to bed soon in hope that I could wake up early tomorrow.
I, indeed, need to wake up early tomorrow to wish friends and relations in other part of the world a Happy New Year 2010.

But, in case I didn't make it to wake up earlier tomorrow morning, I may want to wish you a Happy New Year 2010 now. Earlier is better than never.

Okay, see you guys in a few hours.

Merry Christmas 2009 people!!!

May the joy and peace of Christmas be with you and families all through the year.
It's my second Christmas in San Francisco.

Nothing special this year.
My Christmas eve was almost the same with what I had last year.

Besides, I'm staying at home tonight and not going anywhere.

Our hearts grow tender with childhood memories and love of kindred, and we are better throughout the year for having, in spirit, become a child again at Christmas-time. ~Laura Ingalls Wilder

You guys have a wonderful day tomorrow!
And remember, eat fruits and keep healthy & fit.

Happy Holidays!

"Wow" is perhaps the best word to represent what I feel for my Fall 09 semester. Assignments, quizzes, exams, homework, research papers, and laboratory reports are now over -- no more physiology, psychology, and history. Just one more year to get transferred to California State University as Junior Nursing Student. Finally!

My Fall 09 semester was, indeed, a totally nerve-racking semester. Why? It simply because I had to work during the day and go to school during the night. Those two activities have kept me busy for about five months, Monday to Sunday. Well, of course, I didn't need to go to campus on Sunday. But, I still had one class on Saturday and, as always, weekly Physiology exam on Monday. Hence, I spent my time to study for my history class on Friday night and summarize the physiology textbook, lecture notes, and the DVR during the weekend. What a strenuous semester? Yes, it was.

But, there is one thing that makes me proud of. I did a very good job for all of my classes this semester. I mean "all of them", not only one or two classes. And, I'm absolutely satisfied with the hardworks I did that boosted up my grades even higher than my previous semesters. Through direct observation from my Fall 09 semester, I realized that becoming a future healthcare professional, especially for lower class people like me, takes more than just courage. It requires willingness, hardwork, and self-motivation. For instance, I had to sit in front of the computer with books on the table and start forcing myself to study from midnight (after my night class) until 4-5am in the morning as daily routines even though I was extremely exhausted. Overall, physiology was a heavy class yet fascinating. I love that class even though I had to go to UCSF & SFSU to get several medical journals in order to turn in tons of scientific-proven assignment which were so medical and clinical, including my last self-structured final group project (to prove that music is correlated with physical changes in human body in which high BPM music affects cardiovascular system, respiratory system, and galvanic skin response in human body).

Please forgive me for staying away from blogspot this long. I've never done thing like this before.Can't help it, people! As I mentioned, I was too busy with my tough-life. I even couldn't take care of myself.

Hmm, what else? It's Winter already in Frisco. This video below is just to show you guys what San Francisco looks like this Winter. What an amazing city!

Alright then, I think that’s it for tonight. I’m going to bed soon.
Happy holidays, guys and girls. Will update my blog in 3 or 4 days. Until then, remember eat fruits, be safe, and stay cool.
