Happy Birthday to…

For the first post on this blog that isn't about food, but me. First birthday as a non-student, many transitions, and where I am at this moment, I thought it is a good opportunity to write down some of my thoughts and show some gratitudes that I never had a chance to do so. 第一次寫中文,也是跟美食無關的文章,而是「我」。第一個非學生的生日,完全脫離學生生活後的這幾個月,生活上有很多不同的轉換。剛好趁這次的機會把一些平常沒機會說的事情用寫的來表達。
