Well deserved. It stood out to me how many people were there to support you and to share the experience of your play. I really enjoyed the story of Jerry and the comment on knowing the limits of your own expertise. I actually spent some time thinking about that at work today. Am I outside of my limits? It's something I see often on online forums, and probably more often than I'm aware of in the physical world.

How am I doing? Good question. I am feeling the weight of opportunity. Last year I left my job/company of 6 years for a new role, in R&D, in an area of expertise that is new for me, and still involves managing people. It has pushed me to presenting to CEO, CFO, etc., across to other managers, and working with individual contributors. It's honestly been a lot and I'm not where I wanted to be a year into this role, but I think I underestimated how much growth would be required to do well in this role from my own perspective. Others have a high opinion of me though and are happy with the progress.

My relationship of 3 years recently ended. There's a lot of thoughts I have on that one, but better for a PM, I think. Short story - I moved to Seattle very recently. First experience living in a "large" city. Interested to see how I grow with it.

Edit: I reread this and realized I didn’t respond to “how” I’m doing but “what” I’m doing. Hm.
