2011 goals: Q2 check-in

by Rob Friesel

Halfway through the year. Where are we on our goals? Let’s pause and assess…

  1. Exercise at least four days each week. Just barely missed the mark in April and May, but… I’m still pleased. I’ve been out running quite a bit; and quite a few days get both a run and a walk. And though climbing in general is (disappointingly) way down, I made it outside once.
  2. Finish the “Orin” WordPress theme. Orin was released to this blog on February 13. May its tenure be as long as Ortho’s. [REPEATED]
  3. Get to know Groovy/Grails. Far from mastery; but probably even further from being a complete novice.
  4. Photography: a 365 project. I bagged this one at the beginning of February. It was just too much. Bit off more than I could chew. And really: the last thing the world needs is 365 shitty pictures just because I wanted to do one a day. If I’m going to “one-a-day” anything anyway, it really ought to be writing. [REPEATED]
  5. Reading: ≥36 books. At the end of June my 2011 reading list is showing 22 finished and 2 more as in progress; thus far:

    Well done, if I do say so myself.

  6. Writing: ≥ 2 hours per week. (Not worth discussing at this time.)

Honorable mention bonus round: I’m also now a contributor to the JSHint project (twice).

Until October…

  1. Whose idea was it to let me read Cormac McCarthy in the winter, anyway? []
  2. OK,; actually I abandoned this one. But still. []
  3. Seven weeks my ass; this took me like… 5 months. []
