Day 14

So where was everyone now getting in touch or asking questions about work and other projects in 2012?

I’m not complaining of course, it’s a fantastic start to 2013, I’ve got some interesting projects that I’m already wrapped up in and the learning is never ending, not just technologies but also methodologies, and aside from “Fitter” I’m covering off the three words aim for 2013 well (and taking into account the discussion I had the last time I had my haircut, I’m almost being epic and maybe even awesome in 2013 as well)


Day 2

Well day 2 of the working year, according to WolframAlpha and time to reflect on 2012 and maybe update the oft neglected blog.

So 2012 was a year that went quickly and had some good highs and painful lows, achieving my goal at Alcatraz and getting (some of) the weight off to get around the course, surviving the swim etc, massive high, and in part responsible for the rest of the low:

Work wise 2012 wasn’t the best year, almost 50% quieter / less work than 2011 and some hard months, also in terms of some things I wanted to achieve I completely missed out, no new company website (maybe related to the run rate) no, or almost no, posts here or meaning, I did start learning JavaScript and worked with Google Apps and Node.js so not a total waste in terms of upskilling and in conjunction with TodayIShould managed to build and launch a number of websites using Expression Engine, CodeIgniter or Perch

Oh and to wrap it all off I ended up back at the same weight as I started the year :-(

Still writing this has made me feel more positive, 2013 is going to be amazing, all things being equal I’m going to be a dad again ;-) so we’ll also be moving house, buying a new car and all the other stuff that comes with a growing family.

So three words for 2013

Fitter, Better, Organised


Lets see how it goes, but I’m feeling very positive about the year at the moment, so that’s a better start than this time last year!
