It’s been a year


It’s been a year since I start working here. So many things happened so far. Happy ones, sad ones, shocking ones, furious ones, everything. And I still thinking that there’s a lot things to learn and the fact that I’m still a newbie in this business.

After one year, I learned a lot of the business process of coal mining and government work. It’s definitely not simple and my ‘a lot’ is still only 1% from the whole things. So I got placed in Coal Business Services division? It’s like the division that focusing on drafting and analyzing mining contracts and licenses, pretty suits me whose a legal bachelor.

2016’s Resolutions

It’s at the end of February, yet I still writing my New Year resolution here. It isn’t like I don’t have much to write it down, maybe it’s just hard to start writing.

The Great Swimmer

At this time of year I realize that I’m not a good swimmer.
Allowing myself to be carried by the current is supposedly easy, but it hurts my skin.
Now, all I wanna do is stop following the stream and stay on my own.
I’ll not give a damn about the heavy river behind, I have my small pipeline.
It may hurts a bit, but that makes me “me”.
