2009 New Years resolutions

I partially met my 2008 resolutions. I guess one of my ideas with these resolutions is to aim for something doable, that I will none the less have to put in some effort to succeed with. What do I want to aim for in 2009.

  • Do more blog posts than in 2008. (shouldn't be too hard)
  • Blog about science, economics, politics and the environment.
  • Spend some of my money to make the world a better place (I already joined "The Danish Society for Nature Conservation" - do more like that)
  • Try the Free Software Foundation Europe goals for 2009 - I think I can easily manage the first three points.
  • Prepare better and run a full half marathon.
  • Write more than 1000 lines of code in a new programming language (new meaning a language that I haven't written more than 1000 lines of code in before). I am guessing it will be Groovy or JavaScript.
Actually I also want to visit the dentist more and to buy one of those fancy new Solid State Disk drives that Linus Torvals seems to like (update). But it doesn't quite sound fancy enough to make the list.

How about: Propose to my girlfriend before her birthday?!

Please, please, forget about JavaScript. It's a horrible language.

@ I'll think about it. :o)

@ Andreu. But JavaScript is the next big thing - I am told.

And really it is just python with braces
