December

Ah, December’s here. My favorite month of the year (birthday month!yay!). Yes, I’m one of those people who’s always excited about birthdays. Though I’m not a fan of big celebration anymore, I’m still hyped about the day.

I started my new job yesterday. I work in a start-up environment now, working remotely, with all of my colleagues spread across the US. In fact, we don’t have an office! Coming from a corporate background, I’m still adapting to how things work. I plan to master all the tools this week before I jump into actual work next week. My manager and colleagues are all so supportive, so I am hopeful that this is the start of something great. Fingers crossed!

My family and I went to San Francisco for Thanksgiving weekend. Surprisingly, the weather was very nice. We stayed there for 2 days and it was sunny all along! We went to Sausalito and of course, the Golden Gate. We also ate at Japantown and did a bit of coffeeshop hopping. San Francisco is always a good idea! ❀

Hope you had a good Thanksgiving if you celebrated it. Otherwise, tell me your plan for the holiday season! I will share mine in the next post x

While P is Indonesian and I got to meet her regularly,Β N is Russian – she’s still livingΒ the UK, and I haven’t met her since I left – five years ago. We still keep in touch though, and finally, she decided to visit Indonesia.
