Just like that, 2011 is over. What happened the past year? It went so fast I can’t believe a whole year went without making much of a mark in my life. This is what I got when I took stock of my life last year.Blogging
Sometime in the beginning of the year, I vowed that I would post every day. That was a promise I could not keep, and to some extend didn’t want to keep. Out of the 37 posts that I did last year, only a handful of them were what I would consider as real post. Most of the time, I was writing something just because I had committed to do so. Some of these are worth maybe a tweet or maybe a wallpost, but not a blog post. And so I stopped the postaday campaign and reverted back to posting when I had something to post and when I got the time. Apparently I was too busy to write, or maybe I didn’t have as much to write about as I thought.
2012 was the year when I moved to paid hosting. I had used blogger and moved to WordPress when Dreamhost offered me 2 years hosting and domain name. It was a very generous offer but I moved to HostGator with a 3 year hosting plan. It was fun moving my database to a different server.
I spend some time trying to figure out how certain infections work and how to remove it, but at the end of the year, I feel I had spent most of my time fighting a never-ending battle with Excel Sheets. There were so much more I should have done.
I managed to read a few good books and some of them are… Theodore Boone by John Grisham, The Confession by John Grisham, Paths of Glory byJeffery Archer, Only Time Will Tell by Jeffery Archer, Princess: A True Story of Life Behind the Veil in Saudi Arabia by Jean Sasson, The Bourne Identity by Robert Ludlum, The Bourne Supremacy by Robert Ludlum.

Photography: I always wanted a DSLR camera and this year I managed to buy a Nikon D5000.
Just because I am out of college doesn’t mean that I would stop learning. There are things that I learn at work, from friends, colleagues. I have learnt a few things on my own too. But when I look back, I should have learnt more.
Guess I know what I have to do this year…
