Laziness at the end of 2013 begs for a blog post reviewing the long way I came last year. To put it in a nutshell, year 2013, at least since March, was the best year I've ever had. Moving to a new and completely different environment, less stress, new job, and talented, nice people made this year a perfect one.
Last year around this time, I was thinking, miserably, if I made a right choice? Since I was a teenager I always made my decisions to prioritise work and investing on software development stuff over studying in good and high profile colleges and unis. Something all my friends voted against. What makes 2013 special is that proved my decision was right. My skill, not my college degrees, helped me to find my stability and survive.
One of the best things happened to me was getting rid of my PhD studies. For three years I was wasting my time and prepared worthless papers during weekends to satisfy uni requirements. I am really sorry for what I published. They are worthless in my opinion and they are not adding value to other papers in anyway. The fact that I don't have to deal with this agony is such a relief. Needless to say, currently I am working on my PhD topic as an open source project.
I don't have new year resolution. I believe in continuous improvement and delivery.
Happy New Year!
