2012, new things to do

In the first month of 2012, I already have something that needs to be done.
I have to make report about my study in a topic that I never touched before, make an abstract to submit it to a conference (yeay!), make another report yet the first report still not finished, prepare for another project, become a committee in conference that is held by Indonesian student in Korea (it's just the beginning and I just become a staff though, hahaha :P), etc. This is a little bit exaggerated, but truly, the report really makes me dizzy @_@. Well, this is normal, by time I'll get adapted with all the new knowledge.
I find another things interesting though, maybe I'll start studying about business and economy. I have a dream to have my own business, even though right now I still don't know what kind of business that I want to run. But still, that's my dream, I have & want to reach it. Bismillah Ar-Rahman Ar-Rahim.

take a look back

Year 2011 is already over. This year, 2012, is the new year and hopefully a lot of new things will happen.
If I take a look back to 2011, a lot of things happened to me. In the early month, January, I was still busy with my bachelor's final project. Alhamdulillah I could finish it within two months and graduate on April. On that month also, I attended event about AIESEC, and there was interview for exchange participant. I attended it and unexpectedly I was accepted. Wow, even now I'm still wondering how could I pass that interview.
After I graduated, I worked at my adviser's company, it is consultant in geotechnical engineering. Well, I just worked there for 4 months, from April to July, and I quit because these reasons:
On July, a lot of things happened to me. First, I finally had a chance to do my master's outside of the country (in Korea). And second, I proposed to a girl, and her family accepted me, so on July 31st I married her! Wow, if I remember it now, it feels so amazing. In the first week of July, the announcement of my scholarship came, the following week I proposed a girl to marry me, 2 weeks after that I got married! Alhamdulillah. And another amazing thing is that my fiancee (at that time, now is my wife :D) also accepted in the same scholarship as I am. So with that condition, I had to quit from my job, and continue my study in another country with my wife.
After those amazing things happened, we both went to Korea on the end of August and started our study here. From that month until now, I got a lot of things (again): friends, experiences, experiments, business trips, homework and exams (what??), witnessing new Masjid in Daejeon, Islam brothers from any countries, etc. Really, a loooot of things happened to me. And right now, me and my wife are still here in Korea, studying here, adventuring here, as a student, and as a newly wed (still? they say, haha).
I just can't stop saying Alhamdulillah for all these chances, blessings, and others. Alhamdulillah.

So which of the favors of your Lord would you deny?
