Today… I woke up with a terribly sore throat and high fever. It was a surprise since I was completely fine yesterday.
Today… I was supposed to had important meeting at 12 PM. I then just rushed out skipping shower and ordered an Uber.
Today… even though normally the road is not so congested, we got completely blocked. Meanwhile, I was trying to maintain my composure, reviewing the meeting material, and wiping the sweat off my forehead due to the fever. I arrived at the arranged office 5 minutes late.
Today… I went to the talk with a nice senpai from Tokyo office. I did couple of mistake here and there, but I think the meeting went well, generally. Miraculously I even forgot about the fever for a while back then. Now what I’ve got to do is simply wait for the next progress.
“Today… I did well, didn’t I?” It is a simple phrase, takes no more than couple of seconds to be uttered, yet I long so much for someone to say it for me: “You did well today.” The last 3 months has been the harshest. I was being told to become mature while I had to tolerate those who childishly and selfishly thrust their opinion. All the things I did, most of the time, got criticized and mocked. I also got treated like a beggar.
Not that I am doing this for getting praised, as this is something I chose to do myself too. Yet, being appreciated and acknowledged in your pursuit of dream is something small yet soothe your heart so much…
(P.S.: I used to think that a blog post need to be long, informative, and entertaining. However I think that sometimes small post like this might also works too. Instead of “untargeted ranting” on social media, I will try to project my time to productively write on the blog again…
Also, this is the first time I write a blog straight from smartphone using WordPress Android App. Seems like a good alternative to write post in mobile.)
