Here's the small timeline of things I've achieved during the year.


    Left ACA and started Sabbatical 🏝
    After almost 2 years of exciting time, I decided to leave ACA and have some rest.

    I always dreamt about sabbatical and my dream came true.
    Joined TopTal 👨🏻‍💻
    I have joined TopTal1 talents network through challenging 3 step interview process. You can read about my journey in the following article.

    1 Toptal is an exclusive network of the top freelance software developers, designers, finance experts, product managers, and project managers in the world.
    Started Weight Loss Challenge 🥑
    I lost ~15kg during 8 months of 2022 and:
    • - Brought my BMI index to healthy points
    • - Learnt a lot about nutrition and health
    Sport as a habit 🏋🏻‍♂️
    I'm now visiting gym for 7 months (min 3 times per week) and I enjoy it a lot.

    Recently I'm also taking tennis classes 🎾 (min 1 time per week).
    Explored new places ✈️
    I visited major Armenian, Georgian (Tbilisi, Batumi), and Russian (Moscow, Saint-Petersburg) cities and had really great experiences.

Book of the year

Scott Adams's "From 0 to 1" "How to fail at almost anything and still win big" is a must read if you are in search of meanings.

Scott tells the story of his life and struggles: starting from the bottom till setting up the life he enjoys.

Movie of The Year

You might think that King Richard is just a tribute to Williams's sisters journey and nothing more.

I just ask to not judge a movie by its cover and give it a try.


Beautiful story of struggles and dreams of Williams family and surely Will Smith's genius is going to make you speechless after watching.

Other recommendations:

  • Coda
  • Amsterdam
  • The Northman

TV-Show of the year

Wednesday by Netflix is a new take on an old story seasoned with a subtle humor.

Fascinating camera work and marvelous Jenna Ortega playing the role of a young sociopath is just another level of art.


Other recommendations:

  • House of the Dragon
  • Ted Lasso

Course of the year

Жопа by Evan Zamesin is definitely the course of the year for me.

I think 2022 doesn't require much of a description. It's just a Жопа.

Achievement of the year

Driver License.

  • Theory

    Just take varord.am's course. It has everything you need to prepare.

  • Driving

    Just practice and avoid fastdrive's course. Their drivers are qyart and sexist.

Memory of the year

Leo Andrés Messi. World Cup. Qatar.
