The last year of the dragon, 2000, I finished my computer science degree at Stanford University, commissioned as an infantry officer, completed IOBC, wrecked my knee at Ranger School, made a miraculous recovery, and started Ranger School again in the dead of winter.
This year of the dragon, I decided to move to Ukraine and start a variety of little projects. So far so good. :)
This past weekend, the year of the dragon ended and the year of the snake began. There were festivities in L’viv, the third and final New Year celebration of the season and regular New Year and the Old New Year on January 13th.
