My Summer Vacation

So I remember doing one of these as a kid for school and thought it'd be a good thing to do before my brief respite from classes is over in two months.

  1. Post Guides to GuideSpot
    We released in the beginning of this year but I have yet to really get into actually using it by creating some guides. Feels like when you are constantly fixing bugs and adding features sometimes you can get disconnected from how the site actually gets used. I want to re-visit my 'Guide to Denver Brews' and add a guide about the process of building my arcade cabinet.
  2. Blog Once a Week
    The all too common 'I got too busy to post' definitely applies here. Since I have some time off I want to post a bit about some of the things I've learned in classes over the past months and projects I've been working on.
  3. Read at Least Two Books
    I have 'Crossing the Chasm' about a third of the way read so I want to finish that. Also want to finish 'Good to Great' and 'The Omnivores Dilemma' before I head back to classes.
  4. Re-write my Resume
    My resume hasn't been overhauled since I was leaving my first job over three years ago. I want to get it a bit less technical and more product focused so when I get closer to graduation I have something ready.
  5. Continue Taking Photos
    I got a new Nikon D40 camera a few weeks ago and have taken some interesting (to me) photos with it so far but want to keep getting out and experimenting with it. Hopefully that will give me some good experience before I head out to Denmark for my study abroad program in June. I'm tacking going camping at least twice on to this one and hopefully hiking as well.
  6. Run Three Times a Week
    I've gotten started with this already but I want to continue running so I can shed some of the pounds I've gained doing work and school non-stop for the past year and a half.
Well thats about it, hopefully this post will be a good place to revisit my goals and see if I can meet them all while I'm out of classes.
