2011: This year I have…

My annual End of Year update. See previous years: 2010, 2009 and 2008.

Last year I said I’d:

  • Run another marathon.
  • Write some more.
  • Enjoy my new job and life in SF.

Well, I’ll score that a two out of three. Yes, I ran the marathon, but I stopped halfway (oh, the hills!); I didn’t really blog any more; but yes I enjoyed life in SF. Sometimes life makes things difficult, but my amazing wife and I got through it together.

We started the year in an empty apartment, sleeping on the floor, not knowing anyone in the city. By the end, I feel we’ve settled in and started to make friends.

This year I have:

  • Had cataract surgery. (again)
  • Passed my Driving Test. (again)
  • Been visited by both mothers and both brothers.
  • Launched a Follow Button and Web Intents.
  • Tinkered with various aspects of twitter.com.
  • Seen Buzz Aldrin, Snoop Dogg, Lady Gaga, and various others come in to the office to see where we work, and thank us.
  • Been given free pretzels, trainers, earplugs, ice-cream, online music and books, just because I work at Twitter.
  • Not been in a plane.
  • Not been to England.
  • Had but a single weekend away, on the other side of the bay.
  • Become a dad. :)

Next year I plan to:

  • Take it easy.
  • Enjoy my new life and job new job and life in SF.

And I think that’s enough for 2012.
