Wait, what happened to 2014?

So way back at the end of 2013, I told myself that as a New Year’s Resolution I should attempt to write one blog entry every two weeks. Well, here it is the first full week of August 2014 and I have only written two blog entries, if you include this one. So much for that resolution, eh?

So, the past 365 days have been a bit of a blur for me. Let’s do a quick recap, shall we?

    • August 2013 — I left a job as a Coldfusion developer for a senior PHP developer position.
    • October 2013 — I took the family on a Disney Cruise. It was tons of fun.
    • October-December 2013 — Started and completed first two phases of a large project. Got to learn Bootstrap, JSONSchema’s, Slim framework, and Mustache templates.
    • January 2014 — I leased an all electric Nissan LEAF. Love it!
    • April 2014 — Put on my Business Analyst hat for 6 weeks, and learned a lot.
    • June 2014 — Transitioned into a Java Developer role, and have learned a lot in a short amount of time.
    • August 2014 — My eldest is about to enter Kindergarten, and I am beyond excited for him. He is more than ready for it.

That is just hitting some of the hi-lights. So, provided life will slow down a little bit, I will be back soon to write about JSON Schema’s, life with an EV (electric vehicle), and whatever else seems like a good topic at the time. Until then, kick back and relax.
