Wow, I can’t believe it’s been almost two months since I updated my blog. Sometimes work and life gets super busy and I just get out of the habit of posting.
Anyways, since it’s a new year, I thought I’d sum up the big events of 2016 and what I’m excited about for 2017!
Visited Taiwan – For the first time since 2005, I visited Taiwan. This time was different than the other times because I didn’t go with my family. Mrs. Lexaholik and I went on our own. See this post for a recap of our trip!
Got Married! – Mrs. Lexaholik and I technically got married in 2015 but we spent 2016 celebrating with our friends. We had a big party (“wedding reception”) for us and our friends. Our reception was a bit unconventional and included fun games like Wedding Family Feud.
Became an Uncle – In March I officially became an uncle! Being an uncle is super fun because you don’t really have to do all the hard parenting work but you get to play with and spoil the baby. Watching my niece grow up week by week is pretty nuts. The speed at which developmental changes happen make it seem like she’s a completely new person every time I see her.
Closed My Business – After running my own business for about a year, I decided to close it down. I do plan to go back to entrepreneurship later down the road, but for now I’m back to working for other people. See the post where I announced to my decision and what I learned for more details.
Became a Salesman – I began a new career by taking an entry level sales job for a tech startup. I sell software to lawyers, so my legal background is a pretty good fit. I haven’t posted about my new job at all, but I plan to in the coming months. Stay tuned!
Visited Japan – This year, Mrs. Lexaholik and I took another trip out to Asia, this time to Japan. It was a lot of fun and I saw a lot (also plan to post about this down the road.) We got a JR Pass, which gave us access to the high speed train, which allowed us to explore beyond Tokyo. It was super fun and super tiring–it took me weeks to get over the jetlag!
Those are all the big highlights for the year. Before I go, I’ll leave you with this:
