Oh Hi! You’re here 🙂
Okay, let’s make this introduction short and sweet, and thank you for reading btw.
My name is William Chandra, I’m currently studying at Taiwan Tech for my master’s degree.
hmm, okay are you from Taiwan?
hmm no actually, let me tell you a short story. I graduated from uni when I was 19, and at that time I always knew that I need to go out from my country. Besides, I was a little bit nervous and not sure about what I want to do with my life. I did and tried many things, I had many options, but I thought the first job in a corporate setting was a big deal. It shapes your career path especially in IT which is getting more and more specific. So, before even graduated from university, I applied to Taiwan Tech and got accepted with full scholarship. With so many hopes and dreams, I decided to fly all the way from Indonesia to Taiwan. Why Taiwan? I will tell you that in another blog post.
I want to take this time as a master student not only to develop my skills and knowledge, but also (most importantly) to reflect on myself. This is the first time ever in my life living alone, far away from my family. To live, to think, to function, and to face the world as an individual.
is it too long already? uh okay. Here’s me in less than 500 characters.
Indonesian born-and-raised, I lived in Indonesia for 20 years and currently live in Taiwan. I speak Bahasa Indonesia, English, and Chinese (and still learning). The next language that I want to learn would be Spanish. I love to write, capture moments, create beautiful things (designing, editing photos & videos), and travel (exploring the nature). Technology blows my mind and I want to be part of the most important time of technology advancement in history. Oh! one more thing, I’m a bullet journalist. I’ve been doing it for more than a year and still going 🙂 🙂 🙂
How This Blog Got Started
After graduating from uni, I had so much free time (aka. unemployed). Then I was thinking, “Well, I’m doing nothing, waiting for responses from all recruitment process, reading my favorite bloggers. I might as well start my own blog”.
So, here we are, I’m still writing this blog to tell my progress, my journey, my stories to the internet. I’m happy and kinda shock (to be honest) that some of my posts hit #1 in google search result. I hope through my stories (the happiness, the pain, the struggle, the work, the success, and the failure) I can inspire you to go out and write your own.
This is my life, and you have yours. It’s time to take control guys!! LET’S GO!!
