I hope you had a wonderful Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa/Festivus. My Christmakah vacation has been pretty awesome so far. I've been composing blog posts in my brain and forgetting them by the time I sat down to write, so I think that means it's a good time for some bullet points.
- Achilles got me Little Big Planet for Christmas. The game itself is pretty fun, but the user-generated content capabilities are blowing my nerdy mind. I don't know if my limited knowledge of computer programming is influencing my opinions or not, but I am just in awe of the game creators. Exploring the game makes me want to learn video game programming and design.
- Playing Netflix movies and TV shows instantly on my TV continues to blow my mind as well. I am just in LOVE with technology this winter break. Maybe this is just what I needed to help me get re-energized to do boring programming tasks at job #1.
- I made my list of "30 things I want to do before turning 30." I do this every year for the most part, but since 30 will be the start of a new Jane decade, I figured I'd make big, specific goals and use this blog to help hold myself accountable. I'll probably post my list sometime next week.
- I am knitting Achilles some shorts using circular knitting needles. I figured that I can't call myself a knitter unless I progress beyond scarves at some point.
- In other crafty news, I designed some cookie cutters. I think I'll wait until I make and decorate some cookies to post pictures of the cookie cutters, but I'm pretty happy with the results. (Spoiler: they involve sparkly unicorns.)
- I am so glad that I have another week of vacation left. I am NOT ready to go back to work.
