2002 in a nutshell

– old job goes from cool to suckage in about 2 months
– a sudden loss and a lesson in mortality
– loads of marital stress
– loads of financial stress
– Stanley Cup run
– new job at a cool place
– an expected loss with much pain
– finances start to come under control
– still many uncertainties

As I was driving post-lunch, I was listening to the Rob D track on the Matrix soundtrack. Driving with the windows open. And I smelled change. Welcome change. An omen? I doubt it. Most change this past year has come at a price. Looking back at the entries from this time last year, I can see how unprepaired I was for the ass-kicking I was about to recieve.

I can only hope that the first half of 2003 goes better than the first half of 2002. I should fear changes, after last year, but I think I’m ready for the next one.

I hope I’m ready anyway.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.
