2015 Resolutions

Happy New Year! The title of this post makes it look like I have a silly number of resolutions this year, but fear not: I've managed to limit myself to five. Before getting to them, however, let's first review how I did on my 2014 resolutions:

Overall I'm quite pleased. It was a busy year, but one where my health and well-being took a massive turn for the better. I weigh less now than I've done since I did competitive Judo in my teens.

My resolutions for 2015 are to:

  1. Continue writing, but I'll set the bar a little lower this year: twelve posts on this blog.
  2. Improve my StackOverflow reputation from current 1808 to at least 2500.
  3. Continue learning Clojure (a Lisp targeting the JVM) by writing a web application and getting at least ten users.
  4. Make an attempt at improving my guitar playing by going through the first ten chapters of Solo Guitar Playing by Frederick Noad.
  5. Go hiking in Northumberland and camp out at least once.

All realistic & achievable goals, I think, but not without putting in a little effort. I am looking forward to the challenge! Please do feel free to prod me about progress on any of these!
