2013 was indeed a year. 2014 is also going to be a year. Hopefully eighty thousand times better than 2013. The highlight for me was getting a kick-ass job at Automattic in October. Now let’s look at some numbers of things that I did the way 2013 would have liked best: Buzzfeed style.
1 phone shattered
Turns out it can’t survive a three foot fall if an iPad is body-slamming it to the floor.
1 WordCamp attended
I took every sticker.
2 email templates built
2 make.wordpress.org projects contributed to
Seriously, I’ve been having a ton of fun.
4 conventions attended
Two of which involved space, Batmen, and many bars.
3 programming languages learned
That’s right. I know basic PHP syntax now.
4 coworking spaces… worked at
And all of them are pretty much exactly like this.
5 sketchbooks ruined
So many thumbnails.
6 hour Eclipse game played (and won)
“Now I am become Death, the destroyer of
8 states traveled to
Including Kansas: Kansas Simulator
10+ WordPress Happiness Hours
I learned so much about certain naughty themes.
12 websites designed and built
That I will admit to building.
14 Amazon.com orders
And about 30 missed UPS deliveries.
20+ games of Cards Against Humanity
21 github commits
Expect a much higher number in 2014.
35+ Automatticians met
Which is kind of a big deal considering there are only eight in Colorado.
74 Pens penned
Can’t, won’t, don’t stop
420+ quarters used for laundry
So many black T-shirts.
600+ quarters spent at the arcade
Mostly on Stargate pinball.
