It feels like the post I made for 2023 goals was done only a little while ago - but here we are again at the start of a new year. I'll keep it short this year, things like reading and exercise are table stakes. Those are 'must do' things that are not really goals anymore - I just do it. Instead, I am going to keep a short, focused list so I can hone my time.
Ever since I cured my sleep apnea in 2021, I have been on an absolute tear of productivity both personally and professionally. If you have any sleep related issues at all, get that checked out.
Here's what I want to do.
- Contribute more to Drupal core
- Contribute to DDEV core and DDEV add-ons
- Write more
- Buy a nice acoustic guitar
- Move out of Delaware
Very simple, right? The last two are related. I have been on the road a lot since last July, and need something more portable than electric guitars and amps. That way I can do that, still play and learn in my free time, and not be concerned about loud volume and all that.
My time in Delaware is also coming to an end, its just time to leave. There was a saying I heard a year or two ago, "you can never really go home". I didn't understand what that meant at the time, really, but now I do. It's where I am from, but it isn't home anymore. Positive forces are pulling me in new directions, and I have a clear vision of where I want to be.
