Happy New Year 2011

Happy new year, everyone.

Although Heathrow airport destroyed part of my holiday before Xmas, I could finally go to Japan and spend the new year there. For those I had to cancel the appointments, I’m sincerely sorry about that. For those I could meet, thank you for your time and it was a fantastic moment! I went for a drink, onsen trip, movie, a dinner at China town, had osechi, toshikoshi-soba, saw kohaku, heard the sound of joya-no-kane, saw ekiden, and went for new year sale…it was such a rich 1 week.

Now, this is a review of 2010.

[Tough year] In my blog post last year, I wrote “2010 will be a tough year too.” It was, indeed. The first half was really hard, I was really driven to a corner physically, mentally (and financially) because of job hunting. After getting a job, I spent all my energy to catch up. For the whole year, I was feeling stomachache.

[Achieved the goal!] However, my biggest goal for 2010…job-hunting, was quite successful! Having experienced the job-hunting in Japan 10 years ago, I was expecting that I had to compromise at some point…but I didn’t this time at all. I’m 100% happy with the result. So 2011 will be…

[More learning as UX] I’m not gonna write the detail here, but I want to gain more experience as UX designer, as well as using my own ideas a lot.

[Better private life] I did nothing other than job-hunting last year :'(, I want to have better private life this year.

  • (Finally) finish the project with my friend!
  • Want to travel more! (I might go to Germany in May…)
  • Start something new! (Probably Kyudo…or aromatherapy!)
  • Watch more movies! Listen to more music! Visit more museums!

[Healthier life] I was not really fit last year, it was not good for my mental health either. This year I should do some exercise regularly, cook well considering nutritional balance, and keep myself healthy!

Hope I can spend happy time with you too everyone 🙂
