Good bye 2012 and welcome 2013

So, here we are again. Another new year! I want to say goodbye to 2012 and say hello to 2013!

This past year was crazy and it went by faster then I ever thought it would. I stopped 90% of my freelance work, picked up a full time gig at a local Providence company called ShapeUp as one of their PHP developers, and started taking a few classes online again at http://www.coursera.com. I also picked up my game development and have a few iPhone and desktop titles in the works.

A few other things about this past year… My dad went into remission from the leukemia he was diagnosed with in late 2011. He is still in remission and is doing good. The world did not end in 2012, which is good 🙂 It’s been a year since I’ve moved back up north ( still missing Florida though 🙂 ).

So with 2012 behind me I have a new year to look forward to. With this new year I have set myself some goals that I’m going to shoot for. My main goal is going to have a couple games finished either on the iPhone or desktop by the end of the year. They will most likely be free to play games but it’ll be a start into my indie game endeavor. I also plan to be more outgoing and actually take some time off to get back into a few hobbies of mine that have been slacking. Mainly I would like to play a bit more guitar again and find more time to read a couple books here or there.

So to recap, my goals for this coming year is:

  • Complete two or more games.
  • Pick up my guitar again
  • Find time to read a few new books

Now to state some traditional resolutions. These will be more of your traditional resolutions. Well here they are 🙂

  • Since I’m now officially a member at a gym I will be working on getting into shape and finally loosing a few pounds this year. I’m not going to put an amount or date on the goal. I just want to loose something 🙂
  • I would like to be more outgoing
  • Get my act together 😉

And now it’s time to celebrate the new year! Good bye 2012 and welcome 2013!

Happy new year everyone!!!
