2016 - A Year of Hobbies
In hindsight, deciding on what the next year was going to be midway through 2015 might have contributed a good deal of distraction and might have derailed my efforts more than I expected.
It happened when I was following behind in the footsteps of my youngest step-daughter as we were trying to navigate the labyrinth at St. Thomas University.
In the moment, I thought how cool would it be if I could build a robot to navigate the labyrinth all by itself. That was when I decided that I will find a way to incorporate robotics, maybe even AI, into my next year.
However, still smarting from the lessons “learned” during 2015 - The Year of Learning, I realized that I cannot and don’t want to take on too much. I needed to add some “fun” to my Year Of…
As such, 2016 will be a year of hobbies, hobbies that include playing video games, playing and listening to music, and maybe a bit of home improvement.
Lack of time has caused a stack of video-games to accumulate on top of my XBox. These include titles I was really looking forward to, such as Mass Effect, Assassin’s Creed, and even going as far back as Fable 2 and Portal.
