Speaking

Not a good year for me. A busy year. My company always has restructure. I think 3 or 4 times restructure. My boss changed. My job responsibility expanded. My client changed. Everything changed. I have to deal with a lot of difficulties, facing a lot of challenges. Try to work with new colleagues and new team member. Some old colleagues left the company. Some of them worked for this company for a long time. So I have a little bit depression.

I learned to recharge myself. Refresh myself or give myself more power during the weekend since I have a lot of challenge during the work. I watch a stage show, like a musical. Then maybe write some report on social media.
