New Year's Resolutions for 2014

Making New Year's Resolutions is something I do every year. It's important to me. I like to set goals and see how well I do.


  • Write and publish fiction. This is a childhood dream that I would like to do.
  • Write and publish as least one new technical book, preferably on Python.
  • Learn Haskell or some other interesting programming language.
  • Figure out a way I can make money working in open source efforts. As a consultant, this explains why I don't do it more.
  • Visit the two continents I've yet to see. That means Africa and Antarctica.
  • See the Grand Canyon.
  • Visit more family.
  • Do 1000 push-ups or similar exercises in a single day. I'm at 300 now.
  • Pull off an Aú sem Mão (no-handed cartwheel).
  • Blog once a week. That is at least 52 blog entries!
  • Take a fun class with Audrey.
  • Upload all my outstanding pictures to Flickr!
  • Learn how to surf or snowboard.
  • See all my friends. All of them.
  • Work less and enjoy life with Audrey more.


  • Release the second edition of Two Scoops of Django.
  • Visited South Africa (Argentina and Brazil!)
  • Visited two new nations, Argentina and Brazil.
  • Went back to the East Coast to visit Philadelphia and places in New Jersey.
  • Went back to the Philippines.
  • Took some awesome road trips around the USA. My favorite was driving up the Pacific Coast highway.
  • Pulled of an Aú Batido
  • Took a fun class with Audrey. We did woodshop!
