Plans within plans within plans within a blog post.
So, it’s been a while. Things have been up and down and are mostly on the up again. When things are on the up I feel inspired to do more stuff but with no concrete plans I never actually do them. So here they are, the things I intend to do or get done within the next, say, three months?
Firstly, in a long term view, I want to get involved in an open-source project of some sort. Whether it’s some work related code I whack up on github/bitbucket or (preferably) contributing to a larger project. I’ve been wanting to do this for a while but I’ve never had the confidence in my ability to write code or the foggiest idea about where to start or where to look to start.
I pay for the hosting, it’s about time I bloody well started using it! I reckon there’s a whole bucket load of people out there who feel the same way. This is probably the easiest of my plans, it’s just a case of actually making myself sit down and write!
My Grandpa was an amazing photographer. This is something that was passed down the generations but which I thought, until recently, had skipped over me. Having got my hands on a nice digital camera I never actually get around to using it. This is something I want to change. Even if it’s just taking photos of my foot while sat at my desk, I’m going to endeavour to take a photo every day, or at least have a sessions taking photos of something every week.
I’ve wanted to learn C for a long time, but never got around to it. I doubt I’ll get around to it this time either but I’ve got to have something that I don’t really expect to complete in a list of aims, right?
Think that’s it really. Four aims, not much idea how I’m going to go about them all but that’ll be half the fun!
