2012 Goals – December / Full Year Retrospective

And I made it through an entire year of doing retrospectives.  I’m not quite sure what that says about me other than I can write a few sentences on a blog one time a month updating my progress toward goals I have. 🙂

#1 Getting in Shape

I’m getting more in shape. Still need to start jogging again though.  I found some nice exercises about how to fix the computer guy posture that the majority of us all suffer from here.

#2 Propose PhD Topic

I’m ready to go but I’ve run into a few roadblocks and working on getting those resolved.

#3 Learn a New Programming Language

This got put on the back burner for the past few weeks with school taking a priority.

#4 Learn Guitar

I’m still going to lessons but I slacked off a bit on my week off from work to take care of house work that needed to be done.  I picked up an Apogee Jam and Rock Prodigy to help me get better at the guitar.  I’m really liking Rock Prodigy and it’s lessons that you can do while just sitting around the house.  I’m hoping to get back into a schedule where I can do the practice for it at a set time.

#5 House work

This ended up taking some of my time during my holidays to clean up my house.  It’s a lot better than it was before but there is still some more work let to be completed.  I guess this is the joy of home ownership.


I’m glad I kept this blog up at least chronicling my attempts at New Year’s Resolutions and forcing myself to act upon them, even if I didn’t finish all of them at least I got myself on a track to complete them.
