First of all, I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, Boxing day, or whatever quazi winter solstice related holiday it is you celebrate. I also hope you enjoyed your new years eve/day celebrations and have a prosperous new year.
Second, its time to bore you all with a bit of self reflection. Some notable events and achievements for 2009:
- I began work at a new company, achieving my long time goal of getting a job in Manhattan. For some reason it has always been easier for me to find jobs in Suffolk County than Manhattan.
- Related to the previous, commuting by subway has allowed me to read so many books I got a Library Card from the NYPL. The achievement of note is more that I have read a lot, than getting a library card.
- I took over the Long Island PHP User Group moving our meeting location to InVision.
- I became a Zend Certified Engineer in PHP5.
- Most important, I proposed to my girlfriend, and she said yes.
