Projects!

2015 is here already.  The older I get, the faster time flies by.  I like to reflect on the projects I've done in the past year whenever a new year comes along.  2014 was a busy one.

First off, my largest project was completed:  I finished my Masters degree.  That was a major achievement for me and freed up a lot of time.  It was a lot of work, but for those that are on the edge, I definitely recommend doing it.  With the way the job market is, it's nice to have a little more credentials if I should ever need to find another job.

I got heavily into RC aircraft in 2014.  I went from having a somewhat functioning quadcopter to a fully functioning quadcopter, a mini-quad and 2 RC airplanes.  I learned a lot about electronics and radio frequencies throughout the year because of this hobby and will definitely be continuing it into 2015.

I toyed a lot with my Corvette last year, but ended up trading it in for a Jeep.  I've always loved Jeeps and have another project that should arrive in June that requires 4 doors.  Jeeps are awesome to tinker with and I've already started with mine.  I also wanted to get back into webdesign, so another project I started is http://www.jeepparking.com.  I'll be posting my development efforts for that at http://jeepparking.blogspot.com.  I've always wanted to make an image hosting site that focused on vehicles, so what better vehicle than the almighty Jeep.

2015 should be interesting.  Besides having my first kid on the way, I plan on continuing toying with my quads and working on JeepParking.  As much as I've wanted to get back into my game development, I simply haven't had the time.  Growing up seems to be a big game of priorities and figuring out what gets done when.  I'm sure 2015 is going to hold it's own set of lessons for me to learn.
