Big year! I brought my second child into the world, sacrificed 780+ hours of sleep to raise little humans, recruited dozens of excellent people into tech. Brainstormed new business ideas with friends and mentors (3 good ideas, the rest bad). Developed a dedicated meditation practice (3,000 hours clocked so far), saved a lot of money, learned 25+ new recipes, went through an impressive amount of Meiomi Pinot Noir. Let's go, 2022!
