It’s been about two and a half years since I’ve posted here. Such a long time has passed that I’d almost decided it wasn’t worth keeping this blog around anymore. But I’ve had something rattling around in my head for the last month or so, and this seems like the right place to put it. Not today — today is just for catching up — but soon.
As for the catching up, here are some of the things that stand out in my mind from the last two and a half years.
Late in 2011, I moved back to the Apps Script Developer Relations team at Google. Working on the Chrome team was a great experience, but I just couldn’t deny my true and everlasting love for Apps Script.
In October of 2012, I welcomed my second daughter. Now, 18 months later, she and my oldest daughter already have an adorable relationship that both melts my heart and makes laugh at their nonsense every day.
In February of 2013, after 9 years in New York, and after a lot of thinking and talking and even more planning, we moved from Brooklyn back to my hometown of Raleigh, NC. We’ve been here for a bit over a year now, and it’s been fantastic. Looking back now, I can definitely say it was the right move at the right time for us.
In March of 2013, I started a new job as a web analytics engineer at ROI Revolution. It’s a wonderful place to work, and I’ve enjoyed it since day one.
A lot of big things have changed. A lot of little things have changed too. I don’t hate running anymore. I have a car here. We had to explain the concept of having a backyard to my oldest daughter (No, Pa Pa doesn’t have his own park…that’s his backyard. You’re going to have one too!) But most other things have stayed the same. I still have a hard time putting thoughts into words (unless it’s technical documentation, which is just sad). But I plan on posting here again soon, with something that’s geeky, personal, and has been on my mind lately.
