2014 is a year of weird holes opening up in Siberia and airplanes falling from the sky, which doesn’t sound at all like a newscast that’s on in the background in the early scenes of a sci-fi horror film. So, the logical thing for me to do was to spend the remains of my holiday in Balkans in a small town called Biograd learning stuff about autonomous underwater robots.
If I had to pick one word to describe this year, it would be “intensive”, followed closely by such words as “interesting”, “awesome” and “exhausting”. Whereas the year 2012 was about change and the home run for a lot of projects, 2013 was about packing in those projects and kicking off a new phase of life. After this one the suckiness of 2011 and the years around it to a lesser degree are forgiven.
The positive insanity of this October is over with the book publishing party and the final skills test of the scientific diver school are successfully over. Those were also the last milestones I’ve set for me a long time ago, and signal the end of an era in my life.
