Not to Sound Cliché

2015 is close to coming to an end. As I sit in this lovely Starbucks, I can’t help but reflect on the last year. 2015 was the year I grew. I found myself and I cut the drama that I didn’t need.

If there is one thing that I want to take into the new year, it’s to keep doing me. I’ve taught myself to step out of my comfort zones. I’ve traveled a lot. I’ve found a new community of people in hackathons. I started a company with a best friend, and I’ve deepened the relationships with people that I wanted to make stronger.

I realized this year, that if there is a time to do something, now is the time to do it.

With that being said, here are my goals for 2016.

#1 More YouTube videos. This is happening. More. 1 video a month is not cutting it for me.

#2 Design. I want to become better at design. Starting with that. I’m doing a design challenge by myself. One design a week. For this whole year. (EDIT: I had a friend just join me on this. So keep your eyes open for some new stuff here).

#3 Podcast. Keep on the lookout for that.

#4 Run 4–6 times a week (depending on my travel schedule).

#5 Travel. I want to go back to SF. I want to go back to NYC. I want go back to Chicago. I’m nowhere near done with them yet.

#6 One CS project a month. Regardless of what it is, I want to learn more things out of the classroom.

#7 I want to start or join a campaign of some sort.

#8 I want Jamocha Media to take on a life of its own. We have some awesome things coming up with the company, and it’s exciting to move forward with it.
