Year: 2014

2014 Highlights

Took some time out today to make sure I post a year-end update for 2014. I somehow seem to have missed doing this for the past three years.  Looking back, this year has been extremely fulfilling - both professionally and personally. Here's a quick rewind: January: Interned at Deloitte for two months. My first actuarial… Continue Reading

Philadelphia Half

Great weather, strong finish and yet another run that convinced me running on city roads isn't quite my thing. This most probably would be my last 'scheduled' run for 2014 and couldn't have asked for a finer closure of a crazy week.

Interestingly, there were barely any people here 7am in the morning. Probably because of the Weekday? Time… Continue Reading


Cleared the second Actuarial Exam today! Set the chopper as an incentive for me to pass some months back. Eventually grew out of it and was later gifted a fitbit by wifey. The chopper here was gifted by us to a roommate who'd cleared this exam earlier. For some reason, this one exam took quite… Continue Reading
