How 2019 Has Been Treating Me So Far in Beau-Beauty-Travel Aspect

In case you don’t know… In the past few years, I usually re-read the resolution that I wrote in the previous year to reflect how the progress has been in the mid of the year. The next thing I know, it’s June already and suddenly I’ve done half of the year 2019 already.

I mean, seriously… I’m 30, and still as sassy as I’ve been usually. But hey, life itself has ups and downs so it’s time for me to look back and see what my hope for this year was. Is it aligned to what the reality offers for me? Well, this thing is probably more personal about me rather than something useful for you.

Feel free to skip if you don’t give a fuck about me, but it’s definitely something that I need for me.

How To Lose Friends and Make Everyone Hate You

Recently, there was a drama among my former university friends. It all started out with one friend who suddenly published a super racist tweet against the Chinese. That was super ironic, since we went to a Catholic university with most of our friends and lecturers are Chinese by ethnicity.

The tweet was indeed shocking, but not exactly surprising. Not so much, as I’ve been gossipping about her with some friends not so long before this tweet came out of the surface.

To be fair, I was quite close to this racist friend back in the day. As much as I hate it, I kind of understand the background of how this friend could be the way she is now.

And despite the fact that ever since I’m blocked by her on Twitter, this drama basically gave me an epiphany to create content describing how easy it is to lose friends and make everyone hate you. Like what happened to my friend after the backlash.

Skrill: Transfer Money Internationally From Indonesia, Hassle-Free!

In case you don’t know yet, not so long after I had a collaboration with Shi Hui for the post on Indonesian guys vs Singaporean guys, who knows that I end up dating the latter to prove the difference on my own?!

Well, if there’s any obvious difference between dating my current boyfriend and the previous ones, it’s actually the transparency about my vulnerability. The financial aspect, no matter how hard it is to admit it, is one of them.

I really want to act like I’m a strong, independent woman. But then there are times when I’m short on cash, especially a couple of months ago when my work was a little slower than usual. Last month, I had to borrow some money from my boyfriend.

If you don’t know me, you may think that shit like that occasionally happens in life. But if you know me personally, I suppose you know how embarrassing it could be for me. But hey, work has been quite busy again lately and I’ve paid back the money he loaned me. And it was my first time transferring money internationally from Indonesia. 🙂

I figured it might be helpful if I could write something about it. And how I’ve found a very helpful platform to help me transferring money overseas from Indonesia, hassle-free. And not just from Indonesia, as Skrill provides international money transfer services from many other countries too.
