“we’re all alone. that’s why we have friends and family. so that loneliness is easier to take”
Modified quote from Mr. Mercedes
There have been times this year where I thought I was already thirty-seven, so as I write this post I don’t feel like I have turned thirty-seven.
Have I mentioned how much I enjoy writing these posts? I love it. A day to look back on and reflect on being part of this world and this ride, and as I write this post, I feel incredibly grateful. I am grateful to experience all that I experienced last year and for what I will experience in the weeks/months ahead.
It would not be fair to move ahead without saying thank you to this suburb I had been spending most of my time in 2022. I thought living at home alone and working from home would be quite a boring and lonely experience, but Manly has made the experience quite the opposite. Never a dull day. Living closer to the beach has been nothing but fantastic. It costs me a lot of money but money well spent.
I write a lot here about how the last year went by, but I want to change that up this year and move to a shorter format. Make it easier to read.
Few personal highlights for the last year:
- More than 110 days at the gym. BFT
- More than 200 swims in the ocean.
- No longer being scared of writing tests and working on large-scale applications.
- Travelling to
- New Zealand - Thrice.
- Started to ride share when I had time.
- Participating in 26/11/22 - BONDI BEACH - SUNRISE event.
- Building more apps and writing better code than I did last year.
- Swimming with the fishes at the Great Barrier Reef.
- Meeting a lot of new people. Eating good food and drinking good alchol with them.
- Friends from India coming over to visit and stay. I wish this never stops.
Instead of writing down lists, I want to switch to living 2023 around three themes.
My three themes for 2023:
I hope you all have an excellent 2023. 🙌🏻🤗
