Speaking

There’s still some problem of sleep. I drink the chinese medicine. I keep having some dream. The Chinese medicine can help me get into sleep quickly, but I still have dream. I’m trying to go to bed earlier. I use the phone before I go to sleep. If I’m really tired and I take a bath, I’ll be awake.

My boss give me very hard task. He’s giving me very high demand. Our company, our business is internet. This year we just develop the app so most of the works in technical work so I don’t have a lot of technical work. But, my work is focused on many details and many small things and he’s very angry and push me.

I think most of work in my job are same this year. Actually, there isn’t any new works for me this year. I’m really uncomfortable because of my boss. But, I think he’s right because he have to give me a lot of task or demand me a lot. But, the problem is if I can accept these things and how can I solve this problem.
