Well it is the last day of 2008 and what a crazy year this has been. I have left my job at Gravityfree and started my own business in web development called Igzactly Development. I may be partnering up with one of my clients with a program I am developing within 2009. My brother got married, I’m still living in Florida and loving it, Still struggling to keep a budget and not go under but lucky enough to not have been impacted too much by the economic downturn of this past year. I now have a turtle as well as a cat, I have become a “Mac” only user and have been PC free for month! I own an iPhone, no longer have a 2005 PT as the lease ran out but now own a 95 Chrysler LXI. I have my own office. Still hate the cold. Working with a trainer to get a handle on my weight and overall health. I no longer eat pork. I made more money this year then I ever have. My best friend had a beautiful baby girl and have a second one cooking in the oven. I own a PS3 and am a master at GH/Rock Band.
Overall this past year has been fruitful, hectic and interesting. I look forward to next year and predict myself advancing much further in my career. And to do this I am going to lay out some of my new years resolutions here.
- Save enough money to put a down payment on a wedding in 2010
- Shave Everyday
- Loose 100 pounds
- Write at least once a week in this blog
- Build miahandines.com
- Make at least 2 small web based games (hangman, choose your own adventure, madlibs, etc.)
- Write at least 1 article a month on a technical subject.
This is a small list but I don’t want to overwhelm myself. I need to feel as though I accomplished something this time next year 🙂
I will also make a category for each goal and try to keep updates on my progress for each. Lets see if by this time next year I have done everything!! The game is on!
