Recent Progress and Goals

Hey hey! I'm a developer who lives in Orlando, FL. Right now I work at Code School, listen to a lot of audiobooks, set way too many goals, write at and tweet often.

This last week has gone by entirely too fast. Coding, going out, Micheal Moore, HK movies, classes and massive amounts of work. Last week hit me hard too — 38 hours in a week most my HW was due. There’s no longer any doubt though. The time i spend working out is inverse related to the time spent coding. There’s just no way around it. If someone finds a hack for this relationship, please let me know. So what’ve I been doing…

  • Messing around with PEAR packages

  • Adding Amazon DVD results to that movies script on Dymension (obviously not to make money; but just so i know how to do it)

  • FB4-ing Dymension to get it ready for multiple user support (just for the hell of it)

  • Reading dedicated server, php5 and mysql5 articles

  • Working with WHM’s cgi scripts to automatically create hosting accounts

  • Working on another website I’ll probably never complete, so I won’t take the time to mention it

Things I’d like to do…

  • Finish what i’ve started above. There’s a handful of websites I really want to work on. I just need to concentrate on 1 and stick it out. Maybe i’ll try to make a project timeline and prioritize these things.

  • Think of an insanely cool, attract everyone kind of website. (well, i’d like to)

Eh, anyways; as someone i talked to today mention I should be trying out the things I want to do while i’m still ‘young’. While I don’t feel any older than I was yesterday (or last year for that matter), with graduation around the corner I guess it makes me think about it a little more. I’ll see if I can try a few new things before I say my farewells to college life in December.
