Summer Goals

Last week, I was asked what my goals were for the summer. I didn't have many good answers at the time so here goes:
  • Pay off my debt. I'll do it, but we'll see how fast. The end of the summer might be pushing it.

  • Learn Ruby. Ruby on Rails is getting a lot of hype right now, and for good reason. Ruby as a language excites me for all sorts of nerdy reasons (true object-orientation!) and Rails seems quite useful. I'm certainly ready to get back into a nice language. Plus I love learning new languages.

  • Boost my level of QA. No more trusting myself. Stuart, this one's for you.

  • Finish my own website. I know this project will consume me, so I'm avoiding starting it.

  • Buy a house. Ha! Just kidding. A house a couple doors down went on the market today, and if I were in a buying position, I'd consider it, not that it's terribly nice. Good rental house.
That's a good list for now and maybe I'll add to it.

Do you use basecamp at If?

Funny you should ask. I've been looking it over for the past few days and considering it.

It's a great app, but I'm just now getting to the point where I'd like to start using it.
