Seven months have been passed in 2020. And as we know, for most of this time, we lived in quarantine as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. During this quarantine period, I also lost the main structured activities where previously I was still undergoing learning activities on Apple Developer Academy @ BINUS.
In the first few months (I call it as the first period of 2020), I and maybe some of you use the time by taking the time to attend various online training and webinars to improve our skills. Some of us also begin to develop careers by selling food online or actively in MLM activities to increase our family income.
Now we are entering the second period of 2020, where community activities have begun to return to normal with the opening of the Mall – Office building and the easing of lockdown (In Indonesia we called it as PSBB), some of us have begun to develop new habits in doing activities; some of us continued the new activities that were built during the first period and some of us started actively opening or offering job opportunities. We now are beginning to try to return to normal activities by adapting many new habits.
As for me, this second period still remains as challenging as in the first period. The job search process that i have done for nearly four months still not produced a good results and i also having a bottle neck in the process of implementing OOP and API on my personal projects. This have been a source of discourage for me in this second period of 2020. This is where 30 days writing challenge comes.
I believe from the experience while running Care Service activities with SMAK 3 Character Building that when we fail to prepare, we are exploring our own failures.
“By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail.” Benjamin Franklin
Preparation is an important part for us to face the challenges that may come. And this is where I believe that by consistently doing this 30 days writing challenge, I can make these preparations as well as being a stress relief media during these uncertain periods.
There will be an article with a choice of different topics that I will write every day on this wordpress. And as much as possible, I will use English in this writing, with the aim of strengthening and expanding my grammar.
Enjoy 30 articles that will be available during the next 30 days. Hopefully this will not only be a stress relief media for me, but it can also be an interesting inspiration for you all.
