For a year that felt like time was dragging on forever, this certainly arrived a lot more quickly than I thought. I turned 34. Crazy. XD
Like I joked with a lot of my buddies on the day, I feel like I want a do-over for being 33. I want my money back. XD
All jokes aside, this year was an absolutely surreal event. If I told myself this time last year what would be happening now, I absolutely would not have believed it.
At this point, everything I had planned back in January 2020 has fallen through. I left Tokyo and got stuck out of Japan, Google Tokyo rescinded my job offer, and in the chaos, all my side project plans fell to the wayside while I had to figure out what I was going to do for 2021.
