Birthday musings

Another year gone, another year older. It’s been an interesting year.

Professionally, I’m very happy with the past year. I’ve achieved several goals, got to know some interesting people in the SQL community and, of course, started this blog. I’ve also made some fairly important decisions about the future.

Academically, I’m not so happy. My masters thesis is behind where it should be. (a fact I’m sure my supervisor would agree with.) Most of the initial reading is done and I know what I need to do. I need to sit down and get busy. This is going to have to take a higher priority in the next few months.

On more personal matters, a good friend moved up to JHB. It’s very good to see her again. The roleplaying campaign is going well and from the feedback I’ve been having, the players are all enjoying themselves.

Overall, it’s been a good year. Here’s to the next one.

    Happy birthday (ago). I’m confused — I have found nothing (starting with the main page) that reveals the owner/author of this blog — is it you Gail?

    Indeed, I am the author.

    I think I need to make a few changes to the site’s theme. I have an about page, but there’s no link to it anywhere. My bad.
