My list for 2009

Posted on | December 30, 2008 | 1 Comment

I don’t see the point of having a single new year ‘resolution’. I’d rather list a bunch of stuff that I’d like to accomplish both professionally and personally .. so here’s my list broken down as such:


  • C++ is here to stay, its not going to go away, I may as well get used to using it.
  • Broaden my Python and start with Objective CAML
  • Spend more time with Linux KVM.
  • Spend more time with GDB, I use only 1/5 of what it offers
  • Speak Flex/Bison natively
  • Finally write those PHP extensions I’ve been toying with
  • Really (really) use autoconf as it was intended, this requires a few weeks with M4


  • Balance work and family life much better
  • Stop being such a pack rat
  • Bathe more frequently without being prodded
  • Find some place to teach, even for no pay
  • Finally become somewhat fluent in Tagalog
  • Try more foods even if I think they are gross, though I have eaten soup #5 (bull scrotum soup)
  • Cook more
  • Write more
  • Start and maintain a photo journal blog instead of letting my camera collect dust.

That should be manageable. If I quit smoking, I’m just not going to tell anyone .. or everyone will ask “How are you doing with your smoking?”, which prevents me from ignoring nicotine cravings.
