Joel Gross 2015 Annual Report

Posted in Joel by Joel Gross

I saw this idea from one of my friends and decided to do it myself!

2015 has been a great year for me personally! I asked Laurel to marry me, and fortunately she said yes! I visited Bangkok in April and Europe in July.  My grandparents came and visited me for a couple of weekends in September. I made an emergency visit to the East Coast in October, and made a side trip to DC and loved that city.

Coalition has continued to do really well; I feel we have by far the best team we’ve ever had here now. I built 3 custom web applications to support our work in recruiting, training, and management feedback using the Laravel framework in PHP.

I stopped drinking after our last company party on the last day of September and now have been sober for 70 days; a record for me since I first started drinking at 18 I think.

I have continued to run as my primary form of exercise, occasionally mixing in weight lifting or basketball or rock climbing.

Life overall has been great!
