Months in review

It’s been many months since I’ve had a “month in review” post. In the beginning I found it useful to give myself some direction each month, but the last six months have felt more focused on different obstacles that have naturally presented themselves. I wanted to take a few moments …

October in review

Overall, I am fairly happy with how October progressed. It has laid the foundation for the next month which is all about working towards the alpha release of Absolut. The project will release on heyletschill.com (not yet active) which is the more appropriate “pilot name” for it. The general gist …

January in review

January passed in a flurry. I am not sure if it was a good month or not. On the one hand, I actually feel like I’m starting to learn Java and Android. On the other hand, my first app has been a cluster $%^&*() and I haven’t finished the first …

December in review

December has been an interesting month. I didn’t hit one of my goals for the month (updating the BSI database) but this was slightly out of my control because one of the employees had an emergency. Fortunately, I was able to hit all my other goals for the month: Continue …

November in review

This will be a regular monthly post where I reflect on the month in terms of my goals, accomplishments/struggles, and plan for the next month. So this month, I passed the one month mark since arriving in Malaysia. I was able to check off all my goals for the month …
