Reverb 10: Try
There is a lot I want to try next year. I think overhauling my exercise and weight situation is at the top of that list. I am carrying 35 extra pounds and I noticed lately that my knee does not appreciate that. I’ve gained almost 10 pounds in the last year, and I like how I look naked a bit less because of that. So I need to get into an exercise groove and stop going all-in when I eat out.
I also want to take an art class or two and dabble in encaustic painting, improve my drawing chops, and perhaps learn some more acrylic painting techniques.
I want to give Ubuntu a shot as my operating system of choice. I love Mac OS X, but I also love open source and the freedom (as in liberty) that comes with it. And Ubuntu is available on more brands of hardware than OS X is (unless you create a hackintosh).
I also want to upgrade my phone — or maybe invest in an Nexus S — and dabble in Android app development, right after I learn Java.
And I still want to learn my way around drawing with the
canvas element and finish that HTML5 video player I started before I killed my hard drive.
