/ End of Twenty Twenty
2020 is now over. As you might've noticed, I took a brief "break" from writing (and what's worse - creating) to focus on the changes that have happened recently in my life.
That being said, recently I felt the need to get back to writing (and creating!), and what's better to conclude a year than in writing?
2020 was, quite possibly, the most bizarre (for the lack of a better adjective) year I've had to experience in recent memory: from intense dread to unimaginable happiness, from shock and little to no sleep to finally feeling like I've got my life back in order. Many things have happened so quickly that it takes a little while to process it all.
In a gist
- I became a dad after very long and somewhat complicated childbirth. Still processing this one.
- Both me and my wife, as is a large chunk of the population, are working from home and are generally around each other 24/7. Thankfully, we have no reasons to fight nor silly disagreements or quarrels. The only friction was caused by the new challenges we have to face being fresh parents.
- I was fired from work. The reasoning I was provided with is that this is because of COVID-19. I think there is a different reason, however.
- I found a new job in a place I thought will be great for me. Turns out it wasn't so.
- I have been fired again (see above link for details).
- I found a new job, again. This time in a much more interesting place.
- I've done more coding than I've ever done before in my life.
- We sold our car and bought a new, safer vehicle to spend our family trips together in.
Places I've visited
- Nowhere. 2020 has been extremely dull as far as travel is concerned, both because of COVID and because of being a fresh parent. I am really hoping for a much better 2021.
- Continue learning code. If not for potential future career aspects, then at least because it's fun learning new things.
- Learn to lead. Thankfully, my previous workplaces taught me both what to do and what to never do, but there is still much to learn.
- Continue learning to parent.
- Get back in shape. Lockdowns and, honestly, lack of time wreaked havoc on my potato body.
