A few days ago, we had to bid farewell to a loving member of our family; our adorable little dog Nicky. Nicky’s been with us for 17 years, and although she managed to baffle vets as to how healthy she stayed the entire time, this week, old age finally caught up to her.
I say it every year, but it boggles my mind just how quickly every year goes.
I wrote last time that 2017 was a pretty cautious one for me. I suddenly needed to find new work completely without warning, and I also learned that my health was a lot more worse than I had realised. All in all, 2017 didn’t end all that well for me, but at least I knew what the stakes were.
2018 has been an incredibly interesting set of new challenges. I moved to a country that speaks a different language to me, and I went from an extremely small company to an incredibly large one.
In case you missed the memo, iComics v1.4.5 was approved by Apple and released on the App Store earlier this week!
So in the midst of all of the iComics work I’ve been spamming out on my blog and elsewhere, another thing happened. I turned 32. Blimey.
G’day! It’s been a while, but the reports of my death are greatly exaggerated. Mostly. 🤣
I’ll go into more depth in this post, but for starters, here’s a video I produced for the occasion. 😁
I hope everyone’s 2018 has been going well for them! If the fact my first post of the year was in July is any indication, mine’s been absolutely off the walls. In November last year, I accepted a position as iOS engineer at a tech company called Mercari, and in February, I made the move to Tokyo, Japan to work at the company headquarters. As it happens, this was absolutely perfect timing for this next thing. 😄
