2020 New Year’s Resolution: My Goals to Embrace the New Decade

Merry Christmas, everyone! 😀

As you may already know, I don’t really celebrate Christmas. But spiritually, I definitely love the holiday seasons as well as the season’s greeting that always comes up with gifts and cookies. Anyway, since I don’t really follow Christmas tradition as I grew up mostly in a Muslim household… I’ll take some time to write about my new year’s resolution for 2020 instead.

It’s gonna be exciting. New year, a new decade, and some more new place(s) to explore in the future… My new year’s resolution for next year definitely marks my adulting life. Why? Well, let’s see!

10 Years Challenge: This Decade on My Beau, Beauty, and Travel Journey

I just got back from an event in Jakarta when I felt like I lost motivation to do almost everything, including updating my blog. It’s like, not only did I get some kind of writer’s block but I just felt like taking naps every time. It was only this afternoon that the 10 years challenge came across my mind.

I remember that this 10 years challenge was hyped a few months ago on Instagram. Well, I am not really active at the platform, but I figure I could also apply this challenge on my blog instead. After all, the end of 2019 is kind of special since it’s the end of this decade.

While I usually create a post to look back my whole year to match up with the resolution that I made earlier that year, I decide to make something different this time. Instead of looking back to 2019 only, why not trying to flashback and see my personal growth within this decade?!

No kidding, I even scrolled down my Facebook gallery to find some pics I took within the decade. I’ve been through a lot, and even just by looking at my Facebook gallery, I know that I’ve grown far from the bubbly 20-years-old I was 10 years ago.

Some Tools and Resources I’ve Been Using to Work From Home

Recently, I made a poll about whether I should write about my everyday life or tools and resources I’ve been using to work from home… The latter got 69% vote, and I swear the number wasn’t like that on purpose. LOL.

Because of this, I’ve compiled a list of tools and platforms that are helpful for me since the first day of my work-from-home journey. Mind you, some of the platforms I’ve been using might also be the regular thing in your everyday life. But then again, maybe you didn’t know how to leverage it into a few bucks for some extra cash.

So I guess this post is here. Just a heads up though, I’m not so good at making a tutorial like a career coach or whatever. But I suppose I’m not so bad at explaining things for dummies. If you’re here, then I hope you’re a dummy that is looking forward to your betterment in some way. And moreover, hope this would help you too… Here we go!

Work From Home Jobs: How to Start and What You Can Do to Get Some Online Gigs

Recently, out of sudden some of my old friends reached out through Whatsapp and DM across social media to ask me how to start if they also want to work from home. I’m not saying that I’m an expert, but I was happy to give some insights about it. Things that I’ve done that worked, and how they could apply to their daily activity in order to get some remote jobs.

While some were excited to start the journey on their own, I got one of my friends responding with that annoying phrase: “Wow, that sounds like a lot of work.”

I was really hoping to just slap him on his face to get his reality checked. I mean, some people gotta work. And yes, sometimes we need to work hard so that people will see us living in comfort.

It annoyed me so much, but then it gave me some ideas to just compile it in a post to talk about how to start if you want to start working from home, and things you can do to get some gigs online. Here we go!

Everything is Bigger in Texas

Everything is bigger in Texas. Or, at least, that’s what they say.

Texans refuse to be outdone in just about anything. In fact, even Austin’s Capitol Dome is seven feet taller than the Capitol in Washington, D.C., and LaPorte’s obelisk-shaped San Jacinto Monument is a whopping 12 feet taller than D.C.’s Washington Monument. 

Texas is a dynamic state bursting at the seams with vastly diverse cities… which are also bursting at the seams with hundreds of thousands of new residents moving into them each year.
