🗞TL;DR: Celebrating 2019 and getting (too) personal for the year ahead...
We’re up and running for 2020! In the spirit of sharing my experiences/thoughts/feelings online, I want to publicly commit to my goals for the new year. My goals for the decade, however, are still pending…stay tuned…
But first, a few words on 2019. While I didn’t have any formal goals, there are still many things to celebrate.
2019 in Review
Full moon rising over Long Island City/Astoria as seen from my window.
🗽This was my first full year living in NYC. Although I did spend much of the first half traveling for work, I feel like I got a good dose of city life - and I just love it. It’s been great to be so close to many family and friends (and the visitors that come through).
I had some classic NYC experiences: exploring and learning the names of different areas of the city (though I’m still fuzzy on a few things, like West Village vs. Greenwich Village), going to a few Broadway shows (Aladdin, Book of Mormon, Betrayal), moving apartments (currently living in Murray Hill), and dating (this warrants a much longer discussion).
My location tracking from Google (includes layovers).
🌎I must say 2019 was a great year for traveling and reconnecting. Ignoring some less exciting work trips (e.g. Hagerstown, MD and Tulsa, OK), I went to some wonderful places (some old some new) and made some special memories with friends (some old some new).
🛠I was fortunate enough to join the On Deck Fellowship in Q4 and get immersed in a community of amazing founders in NY (and SF). This has created some promising opportunities (more on this to come)…
💪Last, but most certainly not least, I made some major life changes regarding my diet (Keto & Intermittent Fasting) while maintaining exercise. I lost ~25lbs over 4-5 months. I tend to yo-yo in weight, and so I live each day terrified (actually) of putting it back on. Let’s see what 2020 has in store for me…
