A New Year: 2010

Well, tonight is the end of the worst year, of the worst decade, since the Great Depression. Cheery. It also ends the year I married my lovely wife, so 2009 was not all bad. But, in interest of looking ahead to the future I'm going to do something I often do this time of year, I'm making resolutions for the new year. However, unlike years past where I quickly forgot said resolutions I am committing this years to a digital immortality, a form of permanence, to both help remind me of my goals and to allow me to look back and see what was, or was not, accomplished come the end of 2010. So, without further ado, my resolutions.


  • I will loose weight, with a goal weight of 250lbs.
  • I will achieve a 300lb squat and dead lift, and a 200lb bench press for reps, 5x5.
  • I will get the apartment clean, and keep it clean.
  • I will compete in at least 2 Judo tournaments outside of my club.
  • I will attain my Judo green belt, and blue belt if possible.


  • will write, market, and sell a software product written wholly by me.
  • I will move towards attaining my Microsoft Professional Developer Certification.
  • I will decide on a masters program, and if necessary take the GREs.


  • I will save $2,500
  • I will pay off at least $7,000 of my personal loan.

While I think some of these will be harder to attain then others I think all are doable. Let's hope I'm right.

Those all sound like good goals.

I'm a bit surprised that there wasn't anything to do with reaching a new level in your car repair abilities.

And how about "make a killer flan"?
