So this is 40

Today marks the 40th anniversary of my arrival on this plannet. And I had thought about doing a “decade in review” kind of thing, but after looking over who I was back in January of 2001, I realized that unless you were there, it’d bore you to TEARS[1]. The highlights include the birth of my youngest, changing jobs 7 times, the deterioration and eventual end of my marriage, figuring out who I’m supposed to be versus who I was trying to be, meeting this incredible woman, making new friends and reconnecting with old, and finally settling back down (with the previously mentioned woman) into the place I’m at now.

So, for making the last decade of my life what it was, a big thank you to Ursula, Badger, Donna, Tango, Scott S, Karen & Rob, Ray & Jake, Mur & Jim, J & Mel, Jeff & Dale, Dave & Diana, LeAnn, Paula, Spot, Sandra, Jenny, Jennie, Otter, Scott Z, Jason, Joe P, Joe K, Terry & gp, Sonny, Mom & Dad, Amy, Roy & Betsy, Ursula’s Fans, and everyone else[2] who made the last ten years of my life the amazing journey it’s been.

[1] You can go back and read all the angsty bits, the painful bits, the joys, the sorrows, etc, etc if you want. I’ll pass – I was there.
[2] You know who you are *grin*

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.
