The year is 2023, and after the last couple of crazy years I am looking forward to hammering out a great year in 2023. This is my plan.
Over the last few years, I have been making a concerted effort to spend quality time with my family. This year is no different and it's top of my priority list. These are the main items:
Last year, we bought a house 🥳. It is 20+ years old and looking a bit dated, so this year we are looking to do some renovations to spruce it up a bit.
I will be doing some of these myself, so it's going to be a pretty busy year. Hopefully we can get most of it done. It's very hard to get trades at the moment, so some of it might bleed into 2024.
Last year I started learning (and loving) Rust. This year, I will continue to dig deeper into the language. I feel like I have just scratced the surface but I am committed to getting more proficient. By the end the year I would like to be able to complete Crafting Interpreters in Rust.
After a hectic last couple of years, I am feel like I have the mental energy to study again. This year I will continue to persue cloud certifications in AWS and if I can get funding and support from my company, an Offensice Security certifcation. The list of certs I am targeting is:
Now that I have my pain cave setup it is much more convenient to get my workouts in. I am therfore setting some ambitious fitness goals this year.
Reading (and listening) to non-technical books has been a really good mental stress break for me over the last few years. This year I will continue to target reading 25 non-technical books.
That's my plan. Time for me to start make it happen. Wishing you much success with your plans too ✌️
