2023

2023 is slowly coming to an end. Looking back, I enjoyed it very much.

What went well:

  • I joined Procuros as a Tech Lead in January. Although it's challenging, I enjoy it very much.
  • I continued my weight-loss journey. I am now at 66 kgs. The lowest I've been. A significant drop from 95kgs.
  • My wife and I celebrated our two-year wedding anniversary. I'm looking forward to many more years together.
  • I had surgery to fix the deviated septum in my nose. Something which I always struggled with. There was also some minor aesthetic work done to it to ensure it looks and, more importantly, functions well.
  • My wife and I bought a piece of land together in Mauritius. We're looking forward to building our dream home in 2024.

What could have been better:

  • I should have managed my work-life balance better in some cases. It's not always easy and so far I've only managed to stop working when I fell physically sick this month.
  • My wife and I travelled a little bit last year (within Europe) but we wanted to visit more cities and we didn't get around to it.
  • 2023 felt like an extremely fast-paced year and I wish I had carved time to reflect more.
  • I didn't read as much. Most of my time was dedicated to Procuros this year.

Goals for 2024:

  • Visit more cities within Europe.
  • Start building our dream home in Mauritius.
  • Manage priorities better in my day-to-day life.
  • Try to read more books.
  • Staying healthy.
