So Glad 2014 is Over!

Blog Post created by csergent08 Champion on Jan 1, 2015

It's 2015 and I am so glad 2014 is over. Happy to start the year off work too. The New Year is a time when everyone plans out there goals, hopes and dreams for the upcoming year. I made a fool of myself in 2014 in some respects, dealt with plantar fasciitis and a fracture of my cuboid in my foot. The good thing is that all these things are preventable to some extent. You can learn from your past or repeat it. I chose to learn from it. So let's scrap 2014 and talk about 2015.


A little bit about me. I am a GIS programming strategic war game playing Star Wars fan and animal lover with a bias towards cats(they remind me of little lions) and a diabetic runner that loves his wife and God. So, I am also biased in believing programmers like Star Wars or Star Trek or both, otherwise I tend to believe they are not in the field of programming because they enjoy it. As I said, I like Star Wars, a lot so I am excited that it comes out this year, December 18, 2015 to be exact. I do hope to go to the Developer Summit this year, but last year I paid my own way and used my own vacation time. I requested for my organization to allow me to attend this year. If approved I'll go, but I'm not to keen on losing a third of my vacation time for a work related event this year. I really enjoy them, so if need be I'll send myself in 2016. As I said I am a diabetic and I ended up gaining a lot of weight that I had lost after my injury, so I hope to be in physical therapy soon so that I might be able to run again. As far as weight loss goes, I will work on eating better. Finally, I want to take more time out for my wife. After last year's vacation I realized that we need more time for one another. But all of this is personal and it's part of my New Year's post.


From here on, I will be talking about GIS for the most part. I can get off topic. It's my blog post. I want to contribute more on geonet. For now, I'm afraid the bulk of my contributions will be questions, but you've got to start somewhere. I am hoping as I learn that what I share might be a learning opportunity for someone else.


Happy New Year to all! I hope all of your goals, hopes and dreams are reached.
