  • Giving talks at BostInno and General Assembly
  • Going from 0 to 1 with my Twitter network.
  • Binging Marcus Aurelius’s Meditations
  • Spending real quality time with my family (not just binging movies with my family, as my younger self would have thought is quality family time) in our last Christmas before I leave home.
