Saving my Money

From now on, I will make sure that I don’t waste my money anymore. If my calculation doesn’t wrong, in the 2016, last year alone, I made more than 18000 USD. The problem is, I don’t know what I spent for. But I remembered that I subscribe for hosting and server thing just for fun.

I bought Mac and PS4 (and games), but it just about 3000 USD. I subscribe for MOOCs and bought some books, but it not more than 1000. So where are the rest?? I don’t know!!!

Realize that I manage the money so bad. I will learn to save my money.

Domain I deleted for saving my money.

Domain I saved.

My saving target is for buying a house.

It’s Official: My First Published Paper

The first always be remembered. Well, post Skripsi (Bachelor degree thesis) I was not done. My supervisor said that I have to publish my works as sign requirement.

Sure, it was a lot of works. But after a month revision, my paper just accepted in And here it is Vol 12, No 2 (2016).

For me, apart of Skripsi, this published paper was milestone of my life.

It not easy to finish the Skripsi and paper, sure it hard. I have done it for a year, (effectively 5 month).

I felt awesome, smart, and proud to my self. I can prove that I can do this.


Lumbar Pillow Log #3

Sudah hari ke-3 pemakaian lumbar pillow. Kondisi masih seperti biasa. Tadi pagi sempat berjalan 300 m dengan medan turun dan naik sekitar 20 derajat.

Sore dan Malam hari terasa pegal di bagian kaki kanan dan kadang-kadang jari tangan terasa kaku. Tempurung kaki kanan sempat terasa nyeri sekali.

Di hari ke-3 sudah tidak terasa sakit karena memakai lumbar pillow. Sepertinya sudah beradaptasi.
