January 5th, 2009:
Happy 2009, everyone! My resolutions and upcoming projects.

Well a new year is upon us. I scheduled some vacation time over the past few weeks and am enjoying a streak of clarity as a result. I had some time to catch up on sleep, work on side projects, and think about some of the things I want to accomplish this year.

  1. Get my 2 side projects launched. I’ve been working on the aesthetics for an online application as well as a website for Angry Sheep Motorsports. I’d like to get the first phases of these 2 projects out the door before the end of February.
  2. Practice my guitar playing. Over the past few years, I’ve found little time to play guitar unless I’m at band practice or preparing for band practice. I like to blame my school responsibilities for this. Now that I’ve graduated (finally), I’d like to spend more time doing the creative things that I truly enjoy.
  3. Racing. I may not have the budget for more than 2 or 3 race weekends, but I’m going to try to make the most of what I can afford. I’m not making significant performance changes to my race car, but I hope to make some of the safety changes that I compromised when originalluy building it: a FIA certified seat, removable steering wheel, and maybe even a head and neck restraint.
  4. Artwork. Much like my guitar playing, my interest in creating art (not just design) was limited by my school and work schedule. Now that I actually have my BFA, I’d like to apply it. I have a drawing tablet for my computer that I’ve been experimenting with . The next step is to actually create some electronic “paintings” and composite images.
  5. Read. I used to love to read. However, for the past few years, I’ve had to read a lot of things that I had little interest in… yep: school. I’m looking forward to finishing the 3 books that I’ve started as well as a new book that I was given last night: The Art of Racing in the Rain.
