2022 Year in Review
2022 was one of the most fun-filled years I've ever had, with many adventures that left me with unforgettable memories. Here are some of the most memorable moments:
I kicked off the year by living in a Jeep and heading to Goa. I know, I know - who does that, right? But let me tell you, sleeping under the stars, listening to the waves crashing and driving along beautiful roads was one of the craziest and most thrilling things I have ever done! And the best part? We accidentally discovered a fantastic Rajasthani dhaba on the way back - let's just say it was a mouth-watering experience.
I then had the chance to spend a lot of quality time with my dad after he retired. We played table tennis, went on long walks, and chatted about everything under the sun. It was an unforgettable experience, and I'm grateful for every moment.
The next highlight was the wedding of one of my closest friends. The wedding was held in Kashmir, and it was a great opportunity to live like a local and experience the culture firsthand. The wedding was a joyous and colorful celebration, with traditional music and dance performances, delicious food, and stunning views of the valley. I felt so grateful to be a part of such a beautiful and special occasion.
Later in the year, I had the opportunity to build a house and a caravan, which was a challenging but ultimately rewarding experience. It was incredibly exciting to see our vision come to life and watch the construction progress over time. We faced some obstacles along the way, but the end result was a beautiful house and a caravan that we could take on the road and explore new places.
One of the most memorable experiences of the year was my birthday celebration in Dubai which I couldn’t be a part of 😭. Yes, you heard it right! My family and friends organized a trip with 40 people to Dubai (people flew in from different places) but, but; unfortunately my passport was damaged, and I couldn't fly (I had to return back from the airport). However, it turned out to be a blessing in disguise, as I was able to spend time with my cousins and my friend, discover local places and experiences instead.
Another major highlight of the year was speaking at the App.js conference, which was a significant accomplishment for me. It was an opportunity to share my knowledge with other developers, and I learned a lot from the experience as well. I was able to connect with other professionals in my field and gain insights into new trends and technologies.
Traveling to Poland and Amsterdam was also an unforgettable experience. I had the chance to reconnect with my brother and sister, explore new cities, try new foods, and meet new people. I loved the architecture, the art, and the history of these beautiful cities, and I felt so grateful to be able to travel and see new places.
I also focused on my fitness this year and achieved some personal goals, including a 130 kg deadlift and a significant decrease in my body fat percentage. It was challenging, but it felt great to see progress and make strides towards a healthier and more active lifestyle.
Scaling up GeekyAnts and developing our open-source framework, gluestack, was an incredible challenge. But I'm so proud of what we've accomplished and can't wait to see where it takes us.
Celebrating my brother's birthday in Phuket was such a wonderful trip. We had an incredible time exploring the beautiful island, eating delicious food, and spending quality time together.
Finally, I had the chance to see one of my favorite artists, Prateek Kuhad, perform live. The energy in the crowd was electric, and it was an unforgettable experience. It was a great way to cap off an incredible year, and I'm excited to see what 2023 has in store for me. I'm looking forward to making even more memories, trying new things, and continuing to grow and learn. Bring on the adventures!
Overall, 2022 was a year full of ups and downs, but I'm grateful for every moment. I'm excited to see what 2023 has in store for me, and I'm looking forward to making even more unforgettable memories.
PS: I was also on TV!
See you next year! Have a wonderful 2023!
