Visa Amerika Untuk Pelajar

Alhamdulillah visa untuk S2 nanti sudah ditangan. Termasuk visa buat si mas dan Aghnan. Buat aku ini visa Amerika kedua aku. Tapi walau sudah pernah ngurus sebelumnya, tetap aja keder nyiapin semua dokumennya. Entah karena faktor kita sendiri yang urus semua-semuanya, panjangnya antrian dan betapa mengintimidasi nunggu proses wawancara. Yah walaupun pede ya semua berkas-berkas lengkap tapi tetap aja mah, shit happens. Jadi super double extra nyiapinnya.

Kalau dulu apply visa Amerika untuk urusan Bisnis (B1/B2). Kali ini, karena urusan sekolah jadinya apply visa dengan kategori F1 (buat aku) dan F2 (buat mas dan Aghnan). F1 buat pelajarnya, F2 buat dependant pelajarnya. Kalau buat visa pelajar, sebelum ngisi formulir visa nya kita harus nunggu dokumen I-20 dari sekolahnya. Nah I-20 ini yang penting, bahkan kalau sudah di US I-20 ini harus dibawa kemana-mana dan dijaga laksana passpor kita.

Yesterday I went to Walnut Creek, CA with Tosa, Pianti, Mbak Parti and Naila. 🙂 There is shopping arcade and it is sale season. Uuu.. yippie, sale is always beautiful. I bought this really nice GAP jeans. And I also found something nice for my brother.. 🙂

I Made My Decision in Condord

I finally arrived in Concord. Concord is a small city just one hour from San Francisco. Not so many things we can do actually in here. But, one thing for sure. This city is beautiful. Gorgeous view with Mount Diablo as the background. I feel very peaceful in here.
Something about this place that makes me feel comfortable. I really can think clearly about everything. Especially about my choices.

Hmm.. After full consideration. I finally made my decision. I will take that once in a lifetime opportunity and I will try to live it. I think that is the best decision for me and also for my family. I’m sure I’m going to miss some of people that I’ve been working with. It’s inevitable. But I must embrace all of it. It’s not gonna be easy. I know. But well, I must stick with my choice. One thing for sure. I’m going to miss Manila. I’m going to miss my apartement..:) Nooo.. I’m going to miss the people there. Great people, great supervisor, great working environtment. What else can you ask for it ? And finally, I’m going to miss my best friend… Mmm.. ok, I start crying now.. :'(
