Speaking

I have resigned from my job a month ago, I decided to take rest for some time. The reason I make the decision is on the one hand, there is a little change in my position, on the other hand, maybe I need take more time to accompany my little son. I have been working very happily before 2017, a change in 2019, because I have changed to another team, and I face with much challenges. I don’t like to waste time in doing something I don’t like.

I am just have some worry about my next step. For example, the career path and when I should back to work and what can I do during my holiday. I don’t want the time is just passing and I have no achievement. I hope the holiday could be meaningful to me.  I’m considering switching to another industry, like cosmetics which I have do many years ago. I haven’t started my holiday, I have still some work to deal with.

For my holiday, I will review English, educate my son, I haven’t a plan so far. He’s too small, he’s 16 month. He’s learning some phrases.

I’m looking forward to do something I really like, like bakery and cooking or just enjoying the quiet moment, don’t touch my mobile phone. I really hate your mobile phone has hundreds of unread WeChat message. Maybe I can go swimming. Summer is leaving very soon.

I have resigned from my job a month ago, I decided to take rest for some time. The reason I made the decision is that on the one hand, there was a little change in my position, on the other hand, maybe I need take more time to accompany my little son. I have been working very happily before 2017, a change occurred in 2019,and I had to change to another team, and I face more challenges. I don’t like to waste time in doing something I don’t like.

I am just worrying about my next step. For example, the career path and when I should get back to work and what I can do during my holiday. I don’t want the time to pass with no personal and I have no achievement. I hope the holiday could be meaningful to me.  I’m considering switching to another industry, like cosmetics which I had been doing years ago. I haven’t started my holiday, I still have some work to deal with.

For my holiday, I will review English, accompany/ take care of my son, I don’t have a travel plan yet. He’s too young, he’s 16 month. He’s learning some phrases.

I’m looking forward to doing something I really like, like bakery and cooking or just enjoying the quiet moment without playing with my mobile phone. I really hate it when the mobile phone has hundreds of unread WeChat message/ notifications. Maybe I can go swimming because summer is leaving very soon.
