passing another year, it might always be the best time to count the blessings we have received throughout the year. even though things are not always going smoothly as we expected, i still believe that things happen for a purpose. from human being’s point of view, maybe they don’t look so good, but if we can have faith that they are parts of God’s plan for us, we can always learn to be thankful for everything…

looking back to my goals of the year, only a few are somewhat achieved:
1. finally i got a job in a good company and as i’ve been wanting for, to work in japan for several years and then go back to indonesia…not really the “ideal” job that i expected before, but i’m still thankful for it…
2. my research just got “significant” thing by the end of the year so i couldn’t make it to any conference last year…still need to continue some more by this month, but at least my professor is already “a bit satisfied”…
3. i could barely read any book…i get bored easily when i read books so i couldn’t finish any book i started reading…
4. i think last year i spent too much money on lots of things, travelling and buying stuffs so in the end i couldn’t save money…
5. the job hunting process improved my japanese skill quite significantly, by writing the entry sheets and having interviews in japanese with my limited japanese…still need to improve it more though…oh yeah, i passed the JLPT N2 early last year…hopefully the N1 result will be good also…
6. related to no.3, i tried to learn the iOS programming but i just stopped after only a while…
7. maybe my skill in photography improved a bit, but maybe still not enough to be a photo stock contributor…didn’t spend enough time to take pictures either…
8. after going to hokkaido, i visited osaka-kobe-hiroshima again for the second time after the earthquake…couldn’t make it to okinawa on summer, but i went to shirakawago and nagano on winter holiday…
9. still difficult to change this bad habit…just recently when i started writing papers and thesis i could stay working for long time…
10. i couldn’t make it to do exercise regularly…i was just going swimming when i felt like to, sometimes could go twice a week, sometimes just once, and sometimes not going up to several months…well, maybe something is better than nothing…

maybe the biggest thing that happened during the year, also for most people in japan i guess, was the tohoku huge earthquake and tsunami…for me personally, since that time my leg was injured, it was quite depressing that i can’t do things, even i didn’t know if i should be afraid or not…thankfully some friends were helping me out…another positive thing from it is that the job hunting period for most companies were extended, so i got more time to find a job and to learn more, although it was actually already kinda late anyway…

there are also several lessons God tried to teach me through unpleasant experiences…i just tried to be faithful toward everything He wants me to do…

well, overall, last year felt passing so quickly…i feel like still wanting to do a lot of things during the year but so soon it already ended…all i can do is again being thankful to God for everything, for the things i’ve achieved, for the new job i will start this year, for new friends i made, and for every life lessons i had…
