2019 in review
In retrospect, 2019 was dense. I shipped a client project, completed two math classes, changed jobs, moved, and visited a foreign country. Looking over my camera roll reminds me that I squeezed in snowshoeing, cave exploration, as well as several board and MLS games.
- 30 books read
- 37 movies watched
- 65 til notes
- 9 blog posts
- 1 foreign country visited
In an effort to read more classic literature, I started a book club in 2019.
In total, I read 30 books – the most in a year since 2016. A few of my favorites were:
- The Name of the Rose, Umberto Eco
- The Brothers Karamazov, Fyodor Dostoevsky
2019 brought a wealth of learning. In particular, I gained a new language (Rust), experience with cloud services (AWS), and an abundance of Bash and Docker knowledge. I also gained confidence in my ability to stick to problems and solve them.
Overall, I learned a lot in 2019 – both technical and about myself. I look forward to more learning and growing in 2020.
