There is magic in 23

Happy birthday to me!

23 don't get much good reputation but I feel more awesome than ever. There is a certain freedom that comes with being older, knowing that I have experience another year.

There is too much things I have learnt this year but if I can put it in bullet form:
  • Don't be afraid of making mistake. Instead, it is a shortcut to learn.
  • Don't be afraid of taking risk. I like Jeff from Coding Horror motto: always pick the choice that scares you a little.
  • I have to decide yourself which part I am going to take, what to believe in, what to fight for.
  • And no, I am not that smart. And yes, I suck at many things. And that's okay, too.
Maybe it's just the realization that hey, I actually need to work hard. I need to fight for the things I want, and live life the way I believe in. And like it or not, I am stuck with myself for the rest of my life. Might as well equip myself and learn about myself the best way possible.

It's not going to be easy. Nobody says it is easy. But at the very least, I think it will be worth it in the end.

Here for another great year!
