Every year I like to post my new year's resolution(s), and peak experiences from the previous year. (I also post a picture of where I was on New Years Eve.) It's fun to go back and look at my old ones 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010. It's been an excellent way of keeping myself accountable and as a reminder that change is constant.

  1. Write my own api wrapper library and UI for Philips Hue lights. (I've become heavily annoyed by their design decisions.)
  2. Before the end of the year cut out all coffee. (This is going to suck.)
  3. Beat my previous time of 6:29:46 for the San Diego Rock and Roll Marathon.
    • Stretch goal is to beat this time: 5:36:36.
  4. Do the Half Dome hike in Yosemite.
  5. Successfully migrate my photos off of Flickr. (Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.)
  6. Listen to more music.
  7. Be present.
