2019: A Year in Review

Every year on this blog, I try to do a year in review1; a look back at the year that was and looking forward to the year to come.

This year started out badly, but ended up being the greatest of my journey so far.

Let's break it down.

2019 Goals

I was way too ambitious about what I could accomplish this year but I was desperate to start my career and felt like I could stop at nothing to move the needle. Luckily I got a job midway through the year and didn't have to burn the candles at both ends to get where I wanted to be.

2020 is different.

2020 Goals

I want to learn new languages and get better at my current stack. So these goals reflect all of that. These are also S.M.A.R.T goals as well.

This is it for now. I will probably update this every quarter as I am doing in my app of choice, Notion (opens in a new tab). But this is all I can do right now and I am okay with that.


  1. Not the only one, I know...

  2. Facebook and Instagram cause me incredible anxiety. I deleted them off my phone and only use Facebook on my desktop. I have a Chrome extension called News Feed Eradicator for Facebook (opens in a new tab) that gets rid of all the noise on Facebook. If I want to catch up with one of my 34 friends, I will visit their timeline directly instead of mindlessly scrolling, getting more and more anxious as I do it.
