So. 2020 is over. That uh…. that could have gone better.
I honestly have no idea what to say about this year. It sucked. It sucked for me personally on a huge number of levels, and I don’t think many others would say anything different.
I went into 2020 with a huge amount of excitement. After 5 months of interviews in 2019, I had received hiring approval for an engineering role at Google Tokyo. In preparation, in order to detach from my time at Mercari, I decided to resign at the end of the year to take a bit of a sabbatical where I could relax and catch up on my side projects.
