2019 Year in Review


Well, it has certainly been another revolution around the sun. I added the tag yearnotes for these end-of-year recap and statistic things. 2019 Statistics: Work, Travel, Learning and Self Improvement: Hours worked: 180-200 hours (estimated) - down from 1163 hours last year I've been cutting back on my work commitments this year, preferring to spend more time on personal projects. Programming languages/frameworks learned: Only 1 really new thing, that's the Ionic mobile app framework.

My 2018 in review


Happy new year! Last year I posted some year-end statistics. That seems like a good way to recap the year, so let's do it again. Random statistics from 2018: Work, Learning and Self Improvement: Hours worked: 1,163 (up around 50% from last year) Programming languages/frameworks learned: I'll say 4. I'm counting: C++ which I revisited this year after more than a decade of not using it Go, which I used for the templating in the Hugo blog Flask, which I had dabbled in before but only used in a full-scale project this year Laravel, which I also used in a couple of projects this year Books read: 4.

My 2017 in numbers


Happy new year! Last year I posted some year-end statistics. That seems like a good way to recap the year, so let's do it again. Random statistics from 2017: 45 blog posts (including this one; total of 818 currently on this site according to wp-admin, though that number doesn't add up to last year's stats; down 34 posts from last year, an indicator of increased busyness) 0 words written for Nanowrimo (hopefully I can have another go next year) 59 sketches submitted to r/sketchdaily (a far cry from last year's 321, yet another indicator of busyness) Duolingo streak: 0 days.

2003 Year in Review


Roy's 2003 Year in Review Best Thing About 2003: * I got a job. It feels really good to actually have a decent amount of money coming in at a regular basis. :) Actually, I believe all good things in 2003 have stemmed from my having a job…more cash, new computer, better food, got to meet some nice people, able to buy more stuff, learned new skills, etc… Worst Thing About 2003: * I got a job.
