Track Throwback

Watching the Olympics reminds me of my high school days when I was a competitive track & field athlete. It has been a long time, so I forgot most of my personal records. I did a little googling and found a couple of my results from the past. I am sure I had results better than these (ran a 11.87 in the 100m), but these results are a good start :)

Appian Interview

Appian This weekend I went up to Washington, DC to interview with Appian for a full-time position as a software engineer. They flew me up, interviewed me, and took me out to lunch. I even got to play some foosball in the lounge after lunch. Pretty good time. Afterwards, I took a cab to the Metro to meet my sister, Angela. I ate dinner with her at a Thai restaurant. We were pretty tired so we just went back to her apartment, watched 20/20, and went to sleep. We did do a charity walkathon really early in the morning, so going to sleep was probably the best idea. The next morning we woke up at 6:30am, went to L’Enfant Hotel to eat breakfast (part of the event), signed in, got our T-shirts, and started walking. After the walk, we saw a marching band from Eastside. I think they were from a high school, but I am not sure. When the marching band was done playing, we walked over to the Botanical Gardens because they was a plant that “smells like rotting carcass.” I was intrigued, so we went. Interestingly enough, it also looks quite phallic. But my flight is boarding so I’ll wrap up now.
