New Years Revolution

In no particular order and hoping for a 50%+ success rate, I resolve to:
  • Write a wiki.
  • Cook for a dinner party.
  • Finally stop staring at and actually do something with Perl 6 and Parrot.
  • Be less paranoid about things that aren't worth it, be more paranoid about things that are.
  • Do one bit of creative writing every day (that includes coding, but only the kind of coding where I'm not redoing something I've done before or mindlessly using someone elses interface).
  • Spend more time with friends.
  • Find a new flat in Berlin. Make it habitable to the point where other people can enjoy spending more than ten minutes there.
  • Procrastinate less. Start with the simplest thing first and then just keep going.
  • Contribute some genuinely useful modules to CPAN. My only contribution to date ( POSIX::SchedYield) seemed useful enough to upload, but is hardly the stuff that'll make someones day.
  • Learn how to conciliate "Release early, release often" with being a control freak.
  • Give back more to perlmonks than I get from it (I suspect this is going to be the hardest, that site is just so damn helpful).
  • Lose weight, at least 5 kgs. I'm not really fat, but my gut shows I like the beer and it has to go. The belly, that is, the beer will continue to flow :-).
  • Transcend from test-first to test-driven development.
  • Start a revolution. Somewhere.
