News Year’s Resolutions

Last year’s resolutions review:

  • Rode my bike to and from work, even when it was very hot and a couple times when it was freezing. Probably biked an average of 3-4 days per week, 24 minutes both ways. for a estimated total of around 1248 minutes of biking.
    • I also biked back and forth from the Fab Lab, which isn’t terribly far away.
  • Failed to write blog posts, I had ideas for many technical topics but didn’t set aside time to flesh them out and write them.
  • Delayed funding and production of the Magic Grip.
  • Didn’t really organize much of my RSS feeds, haven’t really been keeping up on reading most of them. I moved from a local fever installed to google reader which has fewer feeds. but still am not keeping up on them. unsubscribed from a lot of sub-reddits as well.
  • Currently still saving up to buy a house. I want to find something with a big garage or basement to use as a shop of some sort.
  • Didn’t conduct a skeptical study of prayer.

This year

  • Build an electric motorcycle and use it as my primary mode of transportation.
  • Finish saving up and buy a house.
  • Go on longer bike rides with my wife.
  • Go camping a couple times.
  • Keep my apartment/new house cleaner.
  • Develop my coding and engineering skill sets further
  • Maybe write an interesting blog post every once and a while. ( probably not every week )

Well thats all I can think of now. I’m sure there will be a lot of interesting things going on this year in Tulsa and I hope to be a part of some of them.

New Year’s Resolutions

Lets see how many of these I can knock off by the end of the year.

  • Take better care of my body / run and bike more.
  • Write a blog post at least every week. For a total of at least 50 by the end of the year. ( what constitutes a blog post may vary from the norm )
    •  Hopefully these will explore more than just technical topics, and possibly focus on things I have a hard time talking about.
  • Get funding for and produce the Magic Grip.
  • Delete most of my RSS feeds
  • Conduct a study on the effectiveness of prayer with my in-laws as an example of skeptical thinking.
  • Langi and I would like to buy our first house by the end of the year.
  • And many more unexpected things.
