10 Achievements in 2015

2015 was a year of big change in my life. Here are 10 moments in 2015 that I think sum up the year pretty well.

April: Played in my first Roller Derby game ever


May: Completed Tough Mudder, an 11km assault course

Tough MUdder

May: Presented my PhD research at Eurographics in Switzerland


May: Garden Society got a new committee and won over £1,500 to spend on beekeeping equipment (amongst other things)

Garden Soc

May: Quitting my PhD. Long story, but in short I wasn’t happy with the direction the research was going in and I wanted to work on something that had more real-world prospects.


Jul – Starting my new job as an Integration Test Engineer at Sky UK, working on the new Sky Q product


Jul – Watching Hamilton win the British GP at Silverstone with my Nephew


Aug – Taking the boat to Bristol. It was a very long way to go, and it took most of the summer in weekends, but it was 100% worth it!


Aug – Moving in with Emily to a (very) little place we can call our own (for the next 12 months)


Nov – Winning prize at CVMP. Very unexpected, but still very cool!


Who knows what 2016 will bring!
