Over the last couple of years, I have learnt a lot, I have made mistakes and sometimes missed opportunities. It is refreshing to "burn" the past, to start on a "clean slate". A few old slates are difficult to totally discard.
I took bold steps to enroll on a PhD program, fall in love, start a family and finish the PhD program even when funding was exhausted. Now I am very close to submitting the written thesis.
During this period, I have interacted with some of the smartest and gifted people in the world and made life long friends with very talented persons. I have travelled a little and found amazing people, places and cultures. My greatest journey has been fatherhood. It is far from over and I hope to chronicle relevant bits and pieces here.
Along the way, I have missed a few opportunities; the startup company that I declined to join, the startup ideas that I never followed or completed and the friendships that I let decay.
It is easy to consider life as a blue or a red pill, But I think it is better to prefer the daily excitement, appreciate the uncertainty of life, grapple chaos and usher the illusion of order.
