Woah, it’s my birthday tomorrow!
Can you believe I didn’t even realize that until this moment? I was reading a David Geller post about Mind Camp starting tomorrow. “That can’t be true,” I thought to myself, “Mind Camp starts on the 29th.” A quick check of my calendar confirmed that, in fact, April 29th is tomorrow. I’ll officially be 27, I think.
My wife got me a couple fun things. I had my heart set on a couple little condiment dishes from Crate and Barrel. Something I found during our wedding registry hunting. We didn’t get them for our wedding so she picked them up for me. Also, she did a great job of getting me a Ruby book! Since she knows nothing of Ruby or programming, I was very impressed! She got me The Ruby Way, and it has turned out to be very helpful already.
This has been one of the most active years of my life. In chronological order: I got engaged to my best friend, I switched from Java to Ruby as my language-of-choice, I left a job I’d had for 5 years (actually, a reoccuring consulting contract), made a brief pitstop at another job for 6 months or so, left THAT job (to focus on my wedding, mostly), got married, started independent Ruby/Rails development.
There’s still 14 hours left to 26, so I’ll let you know if anything noteworthy happens.
