"When I was young I set out to change the world.
When I grew older I perceived that this was too ambitious,
so I set out to change my state.
This too, I realized as I grew older, was too ambitious,
so I set out to change my town.
When I realized that I could not do even this, I tried to change my family.
Now, as an old man I know that I should have started by changing myself.
If I had started with myself, maybe then I would have succeeded
in changing my family, the town, or even the state-
and who knows, maybe the world."

People took my things

Yes, seriously. In fact, they just did it. People took my things away. How come?

Guess what. Well, you know right, the security of this place has not been perfectly fine. Thing like that could happen, so do not leave your things unattended and be careful. But wait. Is it related to that song, "You took my heart away" (MLTR)? Although the "people" and "things" are more specifically defined for this one. (funny huh). Otherwise, probably next one. You see, sometimes, work is like a battle; sometimes you win, sometimes they win. Take it easy, bro. Are you okay?

Okay, let me explain it. Here what I meant to say and the actual thing is... People from a moving and relocation company came to pack my things, which are ready to be shipped overseas to my new place. Everything good! And I got to go.

Buying power!

My power has never been strong when it comes to buying things, which I underestimated. Because that's based on my performance in retail shops and department stores. But, when look at my performance in online shopping, just last months (so busy), I know my buying power is competitive!

The experience is different when compare to that in shopping mall. Walking in the mall for hours (sometimes), I might see a thing to buy and thinking if there is a cheaper one elsewhere, any other choices or other styles, and whether it is necessary to buy. After visited more shops/malls to reconsider, I might decide not to buy the thing for some reasons. So, this part is less fun.

When shopping online, everything becomes fast and easy in choosing and making a decision. It seems like a solution. But, paying for things I've never touched before and sometimes the delivery part can be still a bit problematic and insecure. Okay. Anyway, such kind of shopping has new fun. It does help unleash my hidden power of buying things (so many), especially the things I wanted and needed in preparation for this interesting year.

Like never before

This year has had a lot of big things happened everywhere, like never before. But I was focusing on a rather small thing -- finishing my university degree and getting a job I want.

Well, it is a degree like never before. That's like the highest of its kind. I should present something (final product) that I had been working on (so called research) for years, which is judged to deserve the degree. The way of taking lectures and final exams becomes irrelevant. So, there are no answer sheet to refer, no past-year questions to practice, and no grades to aim. In a way, this means it can be almost anything you can contribute to the field of knowledge (and let people know so) in order to graduate.

The thing is not many jobs require having a degree like that high. People like me, who chose to go through the degree thing, usually have had some ideas of the jobs for us. Job hunting takes time and efforts with many things to consider. I think knowing first what we want to do for now is crucial. It might change over time, and so we remain open for options. Nobody knows of the sure-right job to pick and the sure-win path to follow. In a way, this means it can be almost anything you want to do, and archive whatever like never before. Ideally.

Anyway, it's done (degree and job). Holiday! I wish to do exciting work in next year.

Strange thing

Forget everything you think you know. Well, people come out with this strange thing. I think I know this is interestingly strange. I like what that movie presents. That name is Strange.

Is that what we think we know? Things can get complicated with time and space, life and death. They might seem as simple as that. We don't usually think too much about things like that everyday, since we are busy. What can you do about it, anyway? Changing time? (interesting though). It can be difficult to understand. But those things are strange and always seem relevant, as we think we know.

So, I started thinking a little more about those things (time and space, life and death) and more strangely, what we can do about it. Maybe I'm ready.
