To today's me (2021)

It has been a year since I started my software engineer career in March 2020. Until today, I'm still feeling very grateful to do something I love.

My major life event probably will be decided to work as a software engineer instead of sticking back to my university major, Mechatronics Engineering.

Back to the university day, I was a lazy person who not having a high scoring in the exam but I still pass the exam so that it wont delay my year of study. And in my third year of degree life, I met and fall in love with with my current girlfriend and that is the moment where I felt my life has a purpose and I wanted to do something to make me life become better and stronger.

Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage. ~ Lao Tzu

So I started to take my academic more seriously as well as improve my socialize skill such as talking to the stranger, building my networking and etc. One day, I was sit down in library and asking myself.

“What am I going to do after I graduated. Am I really passionate about what I’m studying right now?”
Then I come out with a conclusion where I’m not hating what I’m studying right now. In contrast, I’m also not really passionate what I’m doing right now.

Fortunately, I was given a web development task during my internship and I struggle a lot because my skills is not compatible yet BUT in the meantime I’m really enjoy what I’m doing. After I ended my 3 months internship, I decided to do lot of self learning about programming skills by enrolling into online course, watch tutorial from Youtube, taking exercise from FreeCodeCamp and etc.

I started apply software engineer position after I graduated in Feb 2020 and I couldn’t believe that I was offered with a Web Developer role from an E-commerce company. Until today, I got no regret with the decision I made in last year and I really enjoy what I’m doing in my work.

Everyone has a life purpose, find the things that INSPIRES you and DRIVES you everyday !
