2018

Post from December 31, 2018, filed under .

Another year is about to end and as usual, it’s been a lot longer than it feels like. Although I’m not sure, either (cf. FAZ’s Johanna Dürrholz), how everyone got into the habit of publishing personal retrospectives, here are some personal and professional events I connect 2018 with. In a format I much like for summaries, though only roughly ordered.

This was probably not everything—it certainly wasn’t, as I haven’t even started my routine EOY review—but it was was popped into mind in these last few hours of the year. Years don’t just fly by, and so I always make an effort to review in some fashion or other.

Everyone, now, here’s to a healthy and prosperous 2019 🙏

The friar utters a few words and Claris is no longer a menace to the throne and Alfred becomes a married man… Cupid has made a simpering idiot of the boisterous, tall rogue whose ringing laugh and clashing sword had kept Thule busy.
