This last year has been really good. First job where I am only a dev. Learned a shat ton about modern C++. So 2019 would be my fav year.

However, I think my favorite moment as a dev was when I realized I could go anywhere I wanted as a dev. That small amount of inspiration when you realize, given enough time, you could recreate the universe in code.

At that moment time became the enemy of ambition.

    This so much. I'm kinda disenchanted with C++ though. I thought it was the bessst. Now I'm hating all those stupid rules like "The implicit assign operator for std::vector copy all members" or "You gotta declare the parent destructor virtual for the derived to be called".
    With C you got values and pointer to values. Nothing else. I'm having conflicted feelings.
