Freshman in College : Orientation Week

Sorry for not writing about anything for weeks. Im just so tired and super busy with my days as a freshman in College in Satya Wacana Christian University. I'm taking International Relations.
But the story that Im gonna give you now is about the orientation week that start on the 26th of August. And for the whole orientation week we only allowed to wear white top (button down or polo) and dark bottom (i usually just wear black and dark blue jeans) and we should wear the orientation tote bag that looked super ridiculous on boys.

So, I was in the Group 6 of Social, Politics and Communication Department. Group 6 was the last group of this Department (we call it Fiskom). I didn't know ANYONE in that group. All of my ex High School mate who join Fiskom are gathered in the same group (accidentally). After that I knew that one of my MALE ex classmate at the 10th grade was there. so, I only have Ivan to talk with. Im so skeptical and afraid. I heard if it is better to not being a good friend with anyone in college. because all of them are fake and bla bla bla... so i just didn't want to know anyone.. Im just so freak out if i found someone who ask more about my personality life. and I just knew 1 person at the first day, Lusia (do not ask me about her now, she just never appear in our activities, we don't know where she is).
On the first day with Pita my best friend since Elementary School

Dita and Ita my good friends in High School 
(Pita and both of them are in the same orientation team)

The Second day, i start t know more of the girls like Feby, Baby, Gaby (man it was so confusing) Nanda and Yosafat but I didn't talk too much to them. Not a great day again. But the fun is, our group's mentor is a guy (the only male of the other mentor) and he isn't tough at all!

On the third day, everything getting better, my walls start to fall down, we made a girl groupies with me, Gaby, Thea, Nanda, Nini (from group 4), Arin, n sometimes with Helen, Tiara and Ayu too. we just like crazy girls grouping together, full of jokes full of smile. And I just like them that much. They are super AWESOME!

with Nini, she was in the Group 2 but she always hanging out with my group

With Arin :)

On the fourth day, i know more boys like Morison, Calvin, Jenli (ahem hahahaha sweetheart for all girls), and some other boys, and the girls told me if im the Crazy Mama. But the thing that i wanna say, the other boys were proud and arogant, especially the boys who came from Jakarta. i knew them grouping with the leader (i think) is a very tall unknown guy. Every time we see him we just wanna slap his face really bad, and they were just super annoying.

What else did i do?
Sign up for classes! yes! and I take Sociology, Introduction to International Law, Introduction to International Politics, Introduction to International Relations, Introduction to International Economics, Anthropology, and English.

I am rather amazed and shocked when I saw my International Relations's mates for the first time, we are so colorful, there are a lot of Papuan (black), Javanese (Light Tan), Manadonese (white), Malukuan (Some white some dark tan), and Korean (Yellow). What a great diversity that we have! So it is a true International Relations, we learn to live and study with people from different cultures.

On the last day, we have some fun sessions in the morning - noon, and an Inaguration party at night. And I already making great friend with Gaby, we just almost like twin. And i make friends with the entire of those peeps of the Group 6. So the Arrogant group was included Peter (the super tall guy) his best friend Eddo, Alex, and they love to bully Thunder. And Peter cs always made noise, they were so annoying. They always tease me, and bully me with called my name and make song of it. maaan.. I wanted to kick them out of my life. (See it here, i use past tense, it means they are no longer annoying)


Summer almost fall
College will still makes us together even though we are in different major
With Karin and Vey, My High School BFF

On the inauguration night, Peter cs start to become calmer. but the girls feel so annoyed by them. Because we still should work with them for the next week. For the Orientation things we divided into 4 big groups. Drum black, Costume (both for carnival), Trash can or go clean team, and Go green or the planting tree team. Our group is the trash can team. so we should meet for 2 weeks to make trash can and cleaning the river in our town. So we should facing those guys for more weeks.

And what kind of thing happen in the party?? for sure a huge stage, music, dance and photos taking and laugh. everyone were so happy until night about 8 (actually the party should be ended at 10 but one of the vice rector was got angry because a simple thing, so he just unplugged everything). And we allowed to wore our University jacket, and we are officially a student of SWCU!

But after that everything changed. After the trash can meetings for weeks (Im gonna post it in another day) our group become the most solid group from all groups in the Orientation. The most clicked (even though some of us the silent not really click with the noisy) but we are so solid (most of us) and we make smaller groups inside. And Gaby, Thea, Nanda, and I are in a one small group with....(guess what?) Peter cs. Go ahead to ask me how we can be friend or best friend. I will tell you later. But they just some of the best guys i ever met in my life. They help me much, and publicly i wanna say sorry for all bad expectations that we (the girls) had about them. They are truly super great friends.
