It’s been a while since I last updated this blog and honestly, I felt that time has gone by so quickly this year. As I wrote this post, I was still in the midst of my travels for Eid celebration, so I had to steal some alone time between the hectic to re-evaluate my earlier 2019 goals and what had actually happened in the past 6 months. I want this post to be simplified, so I will only share some major events and few lessons that I’ve learned along the way.
I recently wrote a blogpost of things that I have learned in 2018 and how I created a Life Masterplan. There are some things from that list that I am still in the process of learning and improving this year. That’s the thing about learning – it doesn’t stop until after graduation, it’s a lifetime process.
Every year, I get a little excited and anxious when new year approaches. It’s not about doing something new or improving certain skills only when the new year starts because obviously you can do that at any point of time in your life. But there’s this little joy when seeing other people share their new goals and passion together at the same time; for a moment, I feel like I have a life reset button. It’s during this time where I get to flip through my old journals, re-evaluate life and seeing where my life is at after a year or so.
A lot of things had happened in the last quarter of 2018 when I thought life would just be plain and normal. At the point of writing this post, I have drafted my 2019 goals which I will share briefly when New Year approaches. This time, I will not be making a list of what had happened in Q4 2018, but more of an overview and what I have learned throughout the year.
After being away from blogosphere for about 6 months, I have many topics that I wanted to talk (write) about. I don’t prefer to dump everything into a single post, and for this reason I will have them posted in separate entries. In this particular post, I just wanted to share a quick glance of what had happened in the past months (April to mid Sept) while I was away.
