2022: Year In Review
2022 in the hindsight was a rough year for me. The start of the year I was super confident on what I wanted this year to be but by the end of it was as clueless as anyone.
Here are some of highlights of the year in particular order that summarise 2022 for me:
Mentored a person to give her first ever talk at EuroPython 2022.
Started learning Golang this year and wrote a lot of silly programs in it.
Attended an in person conference this year after ages. God how I missed those.
Did a two week workcation in Himachal Pradesh, turns out I not that into this workcation thing.
Got back into coffee brewing. Aeropress for the win!
Picked up Japanese as a language this year failed at it miserably. I hope I am more consistent with it next year.
Bonded with a lot of childhood friend whom I thought I had grown out of.
Started seeing someone.
Sent my parents on a 10 day vacation, which I think is the highlight of the year since I always wanted to do something like this for my parents the day I got my first paycheck.
Paid the initial down payment for a car for my parents.
Quit the job that I always tried too hard to fit in and was affecting my mental health. Took a big risk here quitting without a new job in hand, hope it plays off in the longer run.
I hope 2023 is a bit kinder to me and brings in a stability.
