What I’m Up To Now

Last updated on May 29, 2017.

I've been in Stockholm for two months

It's finally warming up and it is lovely. I'm still waiting for my Swedish id to arrive. There are many things you just can't do in Sweden without it.

While my husband and I moved to Sweden for him to take an incredible job opportunity, I learned a difficult lesson that Stockholm is not the Silicon Valley of Europe—and one doesn't exist on the continent. But I now have some things lining up and will talk about them in the coming months.

I've been a bit lonely, but have met a few wonderful people. I am very much looking forward to many friends and family coming to visit Stockholm this summer.

My 3 goals over the next 90 days

  1. Write a long form and a short form blog post a week. I’m building up about a month of content before publishing them here.
  2. Catch up on the latest JavaScript, Node.js, Ember.js, CSS grids, OpenAPI Spec, Docker, Kubernetes developments. I loved working at Fitbit, but I didn’t get to use latest tools. So I’m catching up.
  3. Prepare one outstanding vegetarian dinner a week. I don’t like cooking, but I need to get better at it to reach my weight training (and finance) goals.
