Week 16 – The week I did not stay at home

The mistake I do not want to repeat this year is to put too much pressure on myself with projects about being rich and always be doing something important. I also cannot behave as I used to just a few months back: always being at home, resting, watching TV, reading or studying.

Week 4 – Dream Job, Next Exit

It took me some time to be sure I was not going through some temporary crisis but that I actually needed the change.
