The one after I propose to my then gf now wife


Same here lol, beat me too.

Totally remote for 7 months. Was on a team of 4 people who felt like my best friends. We’d sleep, chat, and just goof off as their wasn’t that much client work and we were all trying to cruise. Still dream about those times...


Don’t idealise what you are doing. We aren’t brain surgeons who are saving lives.

The best engagement is the one that I can spend the most time with my wife and kids. The one that allows me to exercise daily and keep a good mental state. The one that I get good reviews. That’s all.


the bench


Now it’s a curse 😢 it’s no safe zone
