Reverb 10: Try

Try. What do you want to try next year? Is there something you wanted to try in 2010? What happened when you did / didn’t go for it?

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.
