As The New York Times put it recently, “Sleep is the new bottled water” – free, but packaged as a luxury.
From a full seven/eight-hour sleep everyday to a five-hour (at most) sleep every Monday to Friday and make it eight on the weekend. My sleep habit has changed after graduated from high schools.
After watching a video of TED-ed below, I recently made a small research about sleep and these made me aware of how important sleep is.
Been a very very very long time since my last post.
My current job requires me to work for more than usual working hour. The nine-to-five office day is like a dream. But, I learnt a lot from my current working hour. Work-life balance. I recently make a research of life hacks for a kind of job I have at my age now – 22 years old – and work-life balance is just one of the things. Here is what I found based on articles I read and my own experience:

I started today by reading everybody’s comment on my social media timeline about the ban of app-based transportation by the government. Today’s headline.
In fact, an Indonesian online application to order an Ojek (two-wheeled taxi), Go-Jek, has just been introduced in Silicon Valley less than 2 weeks ago. Blew my mind.
