Tweets of the Soul: Jan 16-31

January 2016 felt like a roller coaster ride for me. As I was exploring a new career, I felt like someone who’s fresh out of college and just absorbing the new world outside. I’ve experienced so many highs and lows during this month. I also felt like giving up on several occasions. Everyday felt like a crash course to adulthood. So I tried my best to capture my “growing up” moments and here are some of those tweets.
