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.

I think it’s time for me to start writing again.

Well, even though I don’t always give the check sign to all of them, at least the list of resolution kind of made me have guidance for a year. So this is my list for this year:
