Writing

Actually I have never think about my future life. Perhaps there are two situation in 10 years. One is that I get COO、 CEO or other higher level position in our company so that I will be busier and more stressed. But I can get more meaningful experience and promote a lot. Another situation is that I will do some interesting things recording to my hobbies like do yoga、painting、dancing, and also I have a lot of time to take care of my babies because I already have got enough money from my work. All of those are ideal life, but the second one is my preference.
