My Year in Review: 2017

“Don't hope for a life without problems. There's no such thing. Instead, hope for a life full of good problems.” ― Mark Manson

This blog post is a regular review of what happened in my life in 2017, what went well and what went wrong. Hope we can learn something from here.

Intermezzo: For better year-in-review contents, you should watch the following videos and then just skip all the remaining article.

I think there is no better way to distract ourselves from negative things than doing a lot of productive works. It definitely helps us to move on to the next better things.

This month I volunteered in Kelas Inspirasi Lombok for the first time. As a teacher I shared about my profession and my life story to elementary students in MI Bilok Petung, Sembalun. FYI, Sembalun is a gateway village to hike to the famous Mount Rinjani.

It was also my first experience visiting Lombok island, so I took a leave for few days to travel around Gili Trawangan and southern part of Lombok. I think South Lombok (Tanjung Aan Beach, Merese Hill, Kuta Beach, Seger Beach, etc) will be as popular as Bali in the next decade if the development is progressing well.
