A Tiny 2023 Review

I’m not all that interested in writing long year in review (YoR) articles anymore, so I’ll just create some bullets and a bunch of photos. The bullets come first.

  • I had three different managers at my place of employment.
  • I got on a plane to travel out of my home area a whopping 17 times, 7 for work and 10 of a personable nature. Notable destinations were Israel (1H of the year), Ireland, Las Vegas, Chicago, and of course Seattle & the Bay Area.
  • I switched my primary vehicle to a non-Tesla EV.
  • I was promoted at my place of employment.
  • I attended concerts by Gareth Emery and P!nk.
  • My wife and I did not travel for Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Years.
  • I returned to the office. My commute time ranges from 40 to over 90 minutes depending on my mode of transportation and various other timings.
  • I started drinking espresso shots.
  • I upgraded my main workstation to an Intel Core i9-13900KF CPU with 128GiB of RAM and a Nvidia GeForce RTX 3060 GPU.
  • I had an irrigation system installed for our end unit townhome. This installation resulted in 1 week of no running water in our home due to a valve that is part of the fire suppression system, which I blame squarely on the builder.
  • I gained 4.9 kg.
  • I saw three movies.

Here are some images:

That about it, I suppose. In actuality I got tired of processing photos.

I also started listening to melodic techno instead of a steady stream of trance and house music. I also have a whopping 4x EDM shows scheduled through March 2024 already!
