It just dawned on me that I’ve lived in Madison for four years as of today. I haven’t really reflected much about it recently. I did write a soapbox article on living here after one year, but I haven’t written about living here since, other than in blogs. But in the past couple of years, I’ve changed jobs, tried things I hadn’t tried in years (like softball), took up a new hobby (Xbox), dedicated myself to playing more guitar, and overall just continued to grow up (if at all). In three days, I celebrate four years in state service. It’s been a roller-coaster ride for the last year, but so far things are going very well.
