2009 New Years resolutions
February 9, 2009
After a couple of years of existential gloom, I seem to have come out the other side in my ability to embrace New Year’s resolutions (a month late, but… uh, I’m on the lunar calendar… yeah, that’s it!). I’m always pleased when I manage to do something life-affirming and forward-looking.
In 2009 I will:
- Improve my vim skills. I could always use it for little things like checkin comments and config changes; but this year I’ve committed to using it as my main programming editor. And did you know that my posse rides with vim?
- Build and cook with a solar oven. This is exactly the kind of project that I fail at, because it ends up having a LOT of dependencies that turn into yak-shaving exercises.
- Continue to slowly divest myself of extraneous possessions, especially books.
- Complete one major knitting project.
And I think I’ve learned from mistakes of the past because I’m not going to try for too many resolutions this year.
