No jitters. Though I do want to know what to do with my life. Over the last few weeks, I think I’ve successfully fallen back in love with my job—I’m extremely lucky to have a substantial one, something relevant that I’m learning from everyday. Or sometimes I’m just in awe of how well some managers can make employees feel like their work matters (all the way from Hong Kong, no less). But it isn’t all luck. Another lesson from the real world: it’s one thing to be smart; it’s another to work hard enough to be in the position where you can ask for the work you really want. And I’d like to believe that I treat everything as opportunity-building moments—to seize and to follow through. Already, a new month. Not quite the end of the year just yet.
