Hard to believe a year has already gone by since I started this blog. It is PAX time again! For those in Seattle who aren’t attending, that means it is swarms of peculiar looking people in downtown Seattle again. And maaaaang has it been fun (PAX, not the swarms of people). I actually had to work Friday so I missed out on 80% of the events for that day, but these last two have been a blast. Lots of cool stuff to demo, free swag, awesome booths. I found the panels were less interesting (to me anyways) this year. There were still some good ones, but there were less than I remembered from last year that interested me.
This time last year I had just finished up my last credits at UW Bothell, and completed my CSS Colloquium presentation. I had finished my internship 1.5 months prior and was eager to start off my career. I’ve come such a long ways since then, to a point where I’ve gotten mostly out of my Imposter’s Syndrome (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Impostor_syndrome) feel. I’m really looking forward to continuing my growth in my career, and also reaching out to those who are just starting down the academic path towards a career like my own!
I’m not really sure what will happen to this blog after this post. My contract with UW Bothell is up at this point so I will no longer be obligated (and maybe not allowed?) to post here. Though if I can I would like to post from time to time :) I’m going to be trying to reach out to people in CSS to get more involved in some of the CSS events if I can!
