Toxic

Sampai sekarang yang sering sekali terjadi adalah, memendam iri dan dengki hanya akan membuat Allah memperlambat jalan kemudahan bagi saya. Ada saja halangan untuk mendapatkan kemudahan ketika saya sedang memendam iri dan dengki. Hal inilah yang bikin saya untuk selalu ingat supaya tidak terlalu lama memendam iri dan dengki.

Memendam saja sudah diberi halangan, apalagi menceritakannya kepada orang lain.

Sama halnya dengan kebencian. Memendam benci saja sudah buruk, apalagi menyebarkannya.

Tahun 2016 akan saya akhiri dengan sedikit pembaharuan di blog ini.

Tahun ini nampaknya adalah tahun terjarang saya ngeblog, but it’s been great!

It started with my dad’s retirement in the beginning of 2014. My family would be relying on the eldest so I need to think how to earn more so I can support everyone in the family. On work, I was working my ass of a tender to a prestigious building with good team and a great Project Manager. The second semester I decided to pursue a QS career (I like doing QS duties, and I want to do more) and that was when we were told to call the tender off, the team was disappointed and some people underestimated our effort. The manager decided to move to his hometown for good and transferred us to ongoing project. Surprisingly, my new role on the ongoing project is a QS. What a coincidence.
