A new year, a new website
With the new year, I bring a new website. A website that I built during my C++ classes and hopefully a website that will be slightly nicer to use. The mobile version of this website is far superior to the previous website and I have moved this website to Django's framework which will allow me to more easily implement new features. For those who want it, full technical details can be found on my GitHub page, which is linked to on the "About" page. It's hard to tell exactly where this whole year went, but one thing's for sure. This year has been the most productive year of my life. I've met more people, been to more places, and learned more this year than in any previous year. It's hard to tell just exactly how I ended up where I am, that is, in Israel. If you asked me in January of last year where I expected to be in a year's time, I would have ranked "Nuclear Engineer for Iran" above "spend a year, maybe more, in Israel.” Israel was the last place I would have decided to go to in January of last year (as I’m sure many can attest to). Fortunately, my friends and family, who had had more than enough of me, helped me realize that going to an international college in which I knew absolutely nobody, where I would be nearly a decade younger than most attendees, halfway around the world in a country whose language could be replaced with Mandarin without me detecting a thing, was a match made in Heaven for me; and they were right. I would be a fool to guess where I will be at one January from now, I understand how drastically things can change in a short amount of time, so I won’t lie to you and tell you that I know exactly where my future lies, I haven’t the faintest clue. The possibilities are endless and the world is here for my taking; and take, I will. I have only good options ahead of me this year. I recently received a $12,000 scholarship from UMBC, and I’m waiting to hear back from other universities. I’m not sure if I’ll be in Israel next year. I’m not sure if I’ll be in college next year. I do know, however, that this year will be even greater, even more productive, and even more successful than any other year. Everybody who’s reading this has helped me in one way or another achieve everything that I have and I’m more grateful and appreciative for that than I’ll ever be able to express. Thank you.
