I Ramble: 2 January 2019

In the name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.

I am still not used to writing or typing 2019. I kept on using ‘2018’. HAHAHA! Stuck in the past for the first few days of January every year. Hehe.

Hi, there! I am nowhere near being fully recovered but mentally I am doing better. A kind soul at work reached out to me and gave me reasons to stay at my current workplace, asking me to be patient, to endure, and just do my best. I’ve learnt well by now that for every 10 things I do right, they get erased by one mistake I make. But you know, I will have to learn to discard that pressure off my soul. Like, I will just have to accept that it’s how things work at my workplace but at the same time reject it from intruding my life like a computer virus, breaking me down and tearing me apart through that initial point of contact. Basically, just ignore work. Like, do my job seriously at work but don’t take it seriously in life. I kinda overexplained, I think, so I hope you guys get what I’m trying to convey.

Anyway, more reasons to celebrate! I finally ordered for myself a FitBit thanks to a considerable discount from my insurance’s initiative, AIA Vitality. Additionally, I invested a bit in bullet journal. Okay, now I am not sure if I have mentioned about bullet journal in my previous post. But I will just regurgitate a bit. I ordered dotted notebooks and bought Sakura Pigma pens in a bid to motivate myself to complete a full year of bullet journalling! Yes, as previously shared, my theme for this year centres around the idea of completion. Seeing things through to the end because we all know that I am so lazy to the point that I never complete anything I started. So let’s stop that bad habit through a fun habit.

Oh, oh! I also signed up with Udemy and bought a web developer course for just S$14.99. They are still having a New Year sale and some courses are actually SkillsFuture Credit eligible if you spent a certain amount of time on it. Yeah, imagine, a $200+ course being sold for just $15. In SGD no less! So go check it out! I almost signed up for an elementary Japanese language course but I decided to forgo it because I have books for it plus it is always more fun to take actual classes and practise the language with other people in person. So I ended up taking a web developer course. I do have a basic skillset of web development but I definitely need to upgrade my native knowledge of it. Plus, I realise, I am actually quite good at web development-related assignments. I think it will help with my e-Commerce busines efforts, Street MOB Clothing. Additionally, after seeing that accidents can happen to you, such as my husband breaking his ankle, I feel that all the more I should equip myself with skills that will allow me to work from home.

So that’s about it for now. I hope everyone found something incredible for their 2019. Enjoyzzz!
