Q4 2016 
I decided to pause for this quarter and not set any goals for myself within this time. I tried listing down things I wanted to do in the next three months, but my head was blank. I’m suspecting this is related to my problem. I don’t want to pressure myself too much so I decided to pause for now. I’m planning to do some soul-searching this time.
