New year!

A belated “Happy new year” greeting to all! ๐Ÿ™‚ย The fall & holidays are always a bit … somber for me. My introverted self comes out to play and I end up ‘falling off the planet’ for lack of a better word. I don’t want to make this a “personal” blog but I find that I work best when I have an outlet to vent. So there.

I don’t have any dev links but now that I’ve broken the seal on the blog for the new year, expect irregular postings from me. Mostly technical(-ish) material but there’ll be the occasional housekeeping post.

Aside: I found out from a classmate (Lindsey Cook) about Delicious’s end of year recap. It’s the only 2013 recap that made me feel good about myself. Not sure what that says about me. Here’s my profile (top 2% in tha house! :))

This is the first semester in close to 3 years that I haven’t taken a Computer Science class. I’m having a bit of withdrawal but I’m sure I’ll find something to take my mind off things.

My last post talked about my Chrome extension (TweetPuller). Well, I fixed the Twitter oauth issue and it’s back on the Chrome Web store so go check it out.ย UGA Course Picker is in a state of limbo. It’s functional but I can’t summon the enthusiasm to work on it anymore. I made my Trello board (for managing features for the class scheduling application) public just for kicks (it’s no where near organized but it’s helpful for me to write down ideas for the site as time goes by).

I took a leap of faith and volunteered to assist a group of strangers with a project they are working on. It involves PHP and a CMS with an Android app in the roadmap. It should be an interesting experience especially since I’ll be in a group again! All my side projects have been solo projects and I’m a little tired of going solo. Hopefully, working in a group of equally hungry students will spark my creative juices. ๐Ÿ™‚
