Happiness is finally knowing what you want to do for your PhD. It's going to be a thrilling, head-desking adventure - which I know I'd love.

Let's aim for a complete proposal before year end...and to be a linguist before I turn 40.

It bleeds, babe, it bleeds.

It was awkward, but I was surprisingly calm about it.

I'm not suffering. I just wonder how long will it take to let ME go.

Kamu duduk diam-diam sudah.
Jangan penatkan kepala dengan benda remeh.

Dan jangan tersasar arah!

I should've done this ages ago.
Better late than never, right?

Come 2013,
I'm striking you off my list.
And my life.

Today it was 5707.

The number that gave me strength beyond what they'd ever imagine.

Every word and every support means a lot. And i could never have done it without them.

How could I ever repay these people? These strangers?

I can only offer my little heart, and my two hands.

You humbled me. Thank you for making 2012 a much better place than I'd have imagined.

2013 would be a tough one, but as long as I have them, I'll be ok InsyaAllah.
