On December 12, 2015, we had started our annual semester break; it ended on January 5, 2016. We had a 3-week break. This time, I spent most of the time staying at home.
At home, I did not have many things to do, and it was just the usual things I do daily. Besides that I also read books, watched TV shows or videos, played games, and etc. to keep myself from boredom.
I did not go outside my house often during the break. I went outside occasionally to go cycling for a while, have dinner in a restaurant with my family, go to the movies, and go to my mother’s office to help out some stuff. Some of the movies I watched during the break were “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2”, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”, and “Ip Man 3”. I also went to my friend’s house to hangout. The only time I went outside Jakarta was when I visited my grandmother in Bogor, and I did not stay there.
I spent my New Year and New Year’s Eve at home with my neighbors and my childhood friends. They went to my house to hangout, and we spent it by playing board games such as Monopoly and just talked until around 2 am in the living room. Aside from us the others were asleep, and we might have disturbed them since we were so loud.
Although my holiday was not that exciting, I still enjoyed it. I hoped the break was longer but, as a ninth grader, we have to go to school and study for the soon-to-be-faced exams.
