On the anniversary, I attempted to post this. November 13 marks my seventeenth year here.

You feel old? By 2026, I'll have spent half my life here.

For me it was in April of '08. I was thinking it was longer than that but, guess not!

As I ponder upon the experiences of my life, I can't help but notice how much time I have devoted to this particular place. Almost twenty years have elapsed since I first became a part of it in my youthful twenties, and soon I will be crossing the threshold of my fortieth birthday. It's a thought that fills me with both amazement and unease. In three short years, I will have spent half of my life in this place that has shaped me in so many ways. It's a humbling realization that has made me reflect on the choices I've made and the experiences that have brought me here.
