Wrong move, buddy!

It's been officially 4 months and 6 days of unemployment. Now this part of making my big move back to the motherland was definitely unexpected. And for each day that passes by, it is starting to get depressing. And truthfully, I am already running out of optimism and praise for my own country.

"Where did I go wrong?"

My highlight of the year would definitely be my proposal to Calla back in June. And then taking a trip to Bali as a best man for my friend's wedding.

I sure hope 2014 will be a more exciting year.
