So I come to you almost two weeks after returning from Indonesia with my Indonesia 4 post! I'll probably split this into an Indonesia 4 post and an Indonesia 5 post because there are a LOT of pictures.

So the night before we went to Jogja, we went to church. My cousins' church is actually so different to Australian churches, I'm not even kidding. It was this special teens service, and it was like a socializing group which talked about God. Like, we had to split into groups and wrote stuff that we could do to help people, etc, etc.

our list

my cousins' friends :)

Flight from Jakarta to Jogja

at the airport

Palace in Solo

Welcome mat.


Carriage that held the royal family.

Rice grinder thing.

Prambanan Temple!

I later found out that those things that we're leaning on that go all around are, in my mum's words, 'A male sex organ stuck on top of a female sex organ'.

Inside the temple.


Inside of a different tower.

It's getting pretty late now so I'll do the rest of the days tomorrow.

Okay, I will get to my holiday diary.....eventually. Ahh, I'm so lazy. All I really needa do is photograph the handwritten one I did and include photos.


So I started school yesterday!

I seriously am missing the holidays already though. Still nine and a half more weeks. fdgjkbshtgruih. I actually only came home two days ago, but it feels like foreveeerrrrrrrrrrr ><

So here's a summary of the past two days in dot points, because I like them better than paragraphs.

- Found out I made the open team for tennis
- Have managed to not study at all yet, despite deciding before school started that I was going to study every night this term.
- Power in my house stopped working last night, causing me to not blog.
- Sonja came back to school today, with a bandaged toe.
- Sonja gave us presents from Europe :) She gave us...this tin box from Paris, this chocolate shower gen from Amsterdam and bubblegum mentos from somewhere. :)
- Bought chocolate.
- Diem ran into a fire extinguisher.

Okay, that basically sums up my two days :)

I've been watching a lot of modern family lately cause I bought all the seasons from Indonesia when I went...

Here's a fun fact: DID YOU KNOW that I haven't watched F.R.I.E.N.D.S. in over a week? Like, I haven't watched since before I went to Jogja. Granted, I watched like 20 hours the day before I went, but I haven't watched at all since.
Of course, I have reasoning. Like, I couldn't bring my laptop to Jogja meaning that I couldn't watch. Then they didn't have it on the plane. Then on Monday night, I was super sleepy and modern family was already in my laptop so I just watched that. Then last night there was a power outage. Interestingly, I still watched modern family though. Hmm...

I feel deprived. Although I have been exposed to a very large number of F.R.I.E.N.D.S. gifs.


gifs are nothing, I'mm gonna go watch now.
