Acomplishments 2007/2008

Time to look at the things I wanted to achieve in 2007 list:

  • Drop some weight: In 2003 I lost almost 20Kg. I felt great, but 3 something years later some of that weight is back and I’m starting to feel a little puffy again. – Somehow I forgot about this! Wooops!
  • Find some sort of professional upgrade: this may mean a job change, learn something new. – Done, changed job, dropped OutSystems and embraced PHP
  • Buy a new computer: I cant imagine to continue working with 768MB of RAM for much longer… – Same old machine at home, I’m thinking about getting a mac mini if Apple doesn’t decide to kill it!
  • Buy a new car: my 1997 Fiat Punto did a good job but it’s time to find a replacement. – Done. I drive a Renault Clio 1.5 Diesel
  • Leave my parents house: this could mean move in with somebody or find a place just for myself. – Nope, still here
  • Redesign this blog: and maybe change domain name, It’s about time I let alternative youth die… – Done, already thinking about changing it again

Things I want to accomplish in 2008:

  • Get a membership at a gym, I want to look better
  • Read more books, technical or not, just read more
  • Leave my parents house
  • Go to Sapo Codebits 2008 if it takes place
  • Travel, inside and out
  • Do more freelance work
  • Buy GTA IV when It comes out
  • Make more podcasts
  • DJ somewhere
  • Get some training on something!
  • Spend more quality time with friends and family
  • Be happy
