Life in 2022: Year in Review

2022 is going away soon. This is my attempt to recap my life in 2022.

I might forget some of these in the next few years (as I did with some of my 2020 and 2021 events). That’s why I am noting it down now.

Summary (TLDR)

  • Moved to Sydney. New apartment.
  • Got new job
  • Met many friends and family members, including Thai friends whom I don’t usually see in Thailand
