2004 in review

It's that time of year again for the year-in-review.

  • Got my Private Pilot license with a Glider rating.
  • Travelled outside North America for the first time, to Spain and to Australia.
  • Met a wonderful girl named Amy, who showed me how much fun world travel can be.
  • Went skydiving for the first time.
  • Started to learn Spanish and Japanese, started reviewing my French, and investigated Russian, Chinese, and Basque.
  • Did a valve clearance adjustment on my car which was the first substantial automotive work I've done by myself.
  • Flew a 777 simulator for the first time.
  • Got a good view of the lunar eclipse and took some photos which turned out pretty well.
  • Got a dental filling for the first time. I've never had a cavity before this year.
