This year’s resolution post might arrive a little late because I was busy at the end of the month and during January. So to summarize, last year in 2019 I bought my first house. That’s a very big purchase and almost depleted all of my savings money. It was a second house, but it located in a quite premium neighborhood and near South Jakarta. It is like only two stations away from the Palmerah station. Every time I’m riding taxis or Grabs back home, the driver always said something like this neighborhood is formerly home of many of the Indonesian actress and something like that.
This is changing my demography and also my commute daily, also my perspective and also plan for the future. November 2019 marked my last day of living on a rental property or kostan, and in December 2019 I finally moved to my own house. The date is coinciding with my first time moving into the latest kostan which I previously rent, I moved there in December 2015 and moved out December 2019. Who knows right?
Finally after living in a kostan for around 10 years, lol. 4 years during my college period, 6 years during my work period. I can move to a house.
Now I have a mortgage at the age of 28 years old.
Other purchases I make is a Windows gaming laptop, I always wanted to have a gaming laptop. Because my current device is 2015 Macbook Pro 15 inch. Gaming laptop is powerful, not only for gaming but also for coding and other memory-heavy activities. It’s an entry-level gaming laptop, but with 4GB graphics memory, I think its a quite decent one.
Other useless splurging is me bought two mechanical keyboards :(.
I don’t go on holiday that much in 2019, I just went to Surabaya and Madura, to see my brother off to his first work at Nusa Tenggara Timur. I plan to visit him last year, but that plan is not yet manifested. So I think this year I must go there, to Kupang and Maumere. And I’m also planning to take more holidays or abroad vacations this year.
Last year I broke up with my girlfriend, to be honest, I love her, but our situation is both difficult. I broke up with her before Ramadhan month, and it’s by far the most devastating broke up that I ever have. We still maintain friendly contact until now, because we end in good terms. Since then, I am still single until now.
Last year my boss is resigned, he is VP in my office, that was also a quite huge blow for me and team, and has set back my career plan. In the good part, everything is now clearer regarding my team and my career and will look forward to it in the future.
I also have a little workshop with my friend’s startup, a good one.
On a side note, my Adsense account got reinstated again, so I’m now can continue blogging for money.
I think my wishes for this year is to have abroad trips, and also to buy me a car, and then hopefully getting married this year, or next year. If I found the one of course.
