I’m so grateful of today l that finally I can post something here, just figure it out what’s inside my head, so many things I have kept it inside and it blew my mind. Hmm, I don’t know how to start, i don’t what to write, but one thing that I know I just need to write something.
Okay, it’s not easy for me, so I need to take a breath, take a time for while, and think what I should write here. It just to many things that I want to write, I really miss this blog so much. And finally, time after time it’s getting clear that I really want to share about my feeling.
All right, I want to start my story right now. Okay, It has been two years ago since I graduated from college, I didn’t know what to do. Yup, may be I already explained to you in previous post about it, it’s difficult for me to focus on something. Actually I want to be an art therapist, so I need to continue my study, at least, achieve master degree program. This dream was in my mind since 2012. Since I graduated, there were many things have happened to me, so they had made me forget of my dream for a while. The fact is, I realize that I can’t forget it, since it always there. Since that time, I realize that I have to change my life. I need to do something to achieve it.
Now, my life is better, every day I feel like getting closer to my dream. In this case, I always try take actions that I can do. Yup, finally the progress always comes up in each day. I already find some information about the scholarship, and must be update every week, I try to learn IELTS regularly, I hope I can have a test in January, and get best result that I want. So, from now on, I decide to always share the progress in this blog, so it will be a witness of my life story later on.
My target is get full scholarship of master degree program of Art therapy in Australia. Why Australia? I already searched about what university and in what country which will be an art therapy program. The result shows there many in US, England, Aussie, Spain, and New Zealand. To be honest, I wanted to continue my study in Europe, because besides we study, we also have opportunity to travel around Europe, so it will be nice experience. The fact is there are only in UK and Spain who has it. Hmm, I just think that UK it separate with the other country, so its not easy to do tour Europe, and also the English requirement must be high level. So I decided to continue it in Australia. Because one thing that will be my consideration is close to Indonesia, my sister also lived there for 2 years, and I have some friends there which live in Tasmania, Melbourne, Woogoolga. So may be it will help me to live there, I mean to adapt there may be it will be easier. One thing that I need to struggle is English requirement which high as we know this country use English as mother tongue. Your IELTS must 7,5 or TOEFL 600. If IELTS can achieve 40% it’s you already achieve the target to get Letter of Acceptance (LOA).There are many university which has Art Therapy program there, so university that I want is La Trobe University in Melbourne and Western University of Sydney. After I get the LOA, I can apply scholarship to Australian Scholarship Award, or LPDP.
Sometimes, I still think about apply Scholarship to University in US. Different with university in Aussie which the specific requirement are not too much, in US the specific requirement are so many, Such as New York University (the best university for art therapy program) and Adler School of Professional Psychology in Chicago. So, it must be proud if you can accepted there. The one who accepted it must be the one who talented. So, it makes me confuses. My family gave advise its better you apply to Aussie because the culture shock may be will be solve easier then in New York. But I really think about that, so it makes me confuse, but I hope God give me the way, so I can focus and achieve my goal. I need to take action more to achieve it.
Dear, God, show me the way to achieve my goal easier.
