Short 2009 retrospective

2009 was good to me. I enjoyed the first year of my job at Airwave. In some ways, it was a big adjustment for me, but I found it very satisfying — the organization works well, it’s given me a chance to improve my abilities as an engineer, and I’ve learned a lot. I’ve even come to love Perl far more than I ever thought I would.

I got engaged to Tien, though that was really only a question of when.

The time, or at least attention I had to devote to other activities was somewhat limited. I did a fair amount of gardening. I set up a 25 gallon aquarium with lots of plants, and now that the pH has stabilized, it’s doing very well.
