My New Years Resolutions

Filed under: Main — Ryan Jones @ 1:28 pm

I know this post is a few days late, but my family life has been crazy this holiday season. The cancer is finally catching up to Grandpa and we’ve had family in from everywhere for the past week or 2.

Anyway, it’s a new year – and time for new resolutions. I know I won’t make many of these, but at least I can try.

1.) Lose weight. I’d love to lose about 20lbs. I think I can do this by cutting down my drinking, choosing the right protein powder, and exercising three to four times a week.

2.) Learn to play the guitar. I just picked up a fender acoustic guitar and a chord chart. I already know how to read music, so I’m hoping this won’t be hard.

3.) Get laser eye surgery. I’ve been talking about this for years. I finally have some extra money, so now would be a great time to finally do this.

4.) Launch some new websites. I’ve been pretty stale in this lately, and it’s time I find my motivation to code in my free time again.

That’s all I can think of right now. Pretty boring, I know.

What are your resolutions this year?


  1. We’ll try for:
    – Run a 5k
    – Get to the gym more often
    – Get my first toastmasters cert
    – Do a big speech (booked already 80+ in attendance woot)
    – Launch a UI / usability blog
    – Start a book in 6 months based on posts from above
    – I picked up guitar about 1.5 years ago, ive been trying to learn to sing
    – The 2007 web ascender earnings were better than expected, I’m shooting for 3x in 2008.
