As a general rule I don’t set New Year resolutions so as to not be disappointed with myself when the end of the year rolls around and I haven’t achieved anything I set out to achieve at the start of the year. This year there is only one exception to that general rule.This blog.I aim to keep it updated fairly regularly and with a bit of luck I’ll be able to look back on the posts at the end of 2018 and work out what’s been coming out of my brain that people have actually been reading. Maybe it’ll be worth putting together a list as part of my reflections post at the end of year. Or maybe it’ll all be garbage and this year-long study will end with nothing but a bit of wasted time on my behalf.

Let’s look towards something else though. While I don’t do resolutions, I do have a checklist of things to do this year. So let’s have a look at some of those items and see in 12 months time how I’m tracking shall we?

  • Rebuild the Sim Rig. This one is kind of on-again-off-again in terms of a project I need to complete. Without a dedicated game or competitive series where I’d actually get some use out of it I don’t tend to use it so it’s kind of just sat around in pieces.
  • Start learning Python. Essentially I’d started this one last year just after finishing my studies. Chris suggested it during the year but I said I wanted to get classes out of the way first. Now that that’s done I can, and have, moved onto it.
  • Clean my email inboxes. Would you believe me if I told you I had, combined, around 5,000 unread emails in my inboxes? Sure most of them are catalogue and sale emails and I find the important stuff in the middle of it but I should probably go through it and sort them all better, right?
  • Clean out my wardrobe. This is actually something I thought about a while back but never got around to for some reason. There’s a lot of shit in my wardrobe I simply don’t wear, and have no intentions of wearing. So my intention is to get rid of some stuff eventually.
  • Start playing guitar again. I really shouldn’t have ever stopped.
  • Start drawing again. I wasn’t the best but I wasn’t terrible at it either, just needed to do it more. Instead, I do it less.

There’s some other stuff on my list, but they’re things to talk about at another time.

Until next time,

– Scott.
