New Year Resolutions – 2011

January 1st, 2011

Another year has rolled over. I spent a large chunk of the new years party staring into space thinking about where I’ve been, and what I’m going to do.

2010 didn’t entirely go as planned. But, rather than dwelling on what I didn’t do, and what went wrong, I’m going to look at what I want to achieve. Here’s my list for 2011.

  • Develop and/or contribute to an Android app.
  • Develop and/or contribute to an application in Linux.
  • Go and see at least two of the following; Plays, live bands, classical concerts*.
  • Invest in some shares (finally). (18/08/2011)
  • Pay off my student loan. (20/01/2011)
  • Write at least 20,000 words of fiction.
  • Get back down to 80 kg.
  • Blog more.

Travel isn’t on there, because it’s time & money consuming. I can do that when I’m older. The time to build things is when I’m ‘young’.

* This is what I’m going to do for my birthday.

    I like what you are doing for your birthday and really hope you get to do all the things on your 2011 list.
    Do you know what Android app yet or have any ideas of subject area?
    Careful what shares you invest in; I know quite a few people who weren’t so happy at Christmas as they had shares in Pike River and/or NZ Oil and Gas so lost a lot of money.
    Paying off my student loan felt really good, like a weight lifted off.

    @Tabitha
    Yup, I’m going to add zeroconf support to MPDroid, so as to make the network configuration all automagical.

    Shares: I’m going for the long term investment/dividends option, rather than trading. And I intend to follow the other golden rule of only investing that which you can afford to lose.
