As some of you know I like to read and I like to read code. I also like to read about code. The other day it hit me that I haven’t done a full theme review in a long time. It made me a little sad.

I do miss that.

There is a partial reason why I haven’t. Okay there are a few.

  • Time
  • Rules may have changed a bit
  • Backlog of approved but not live
  • Life

The biggest one being time. My priorities have changed over the years. I went from helping out on the support forums and reviews after I would get off work or even before work to having to almost schedule times for that. I’m not saying it’s a bad thing but when I feel like I need to schedule that it almost becomes work. I don’t want that.

I love helping people.

However I can. I think this was also part of the reason I chose to be the lead organizer for this year.

Other things

The last couple of weeks I have been practicing classical guitar songs because that is how I first began to learn guitar. That later transpired to learning to play Flamenco style. It’s been awesome and a great side hobby.

I have recorded myself playing here and there and even setup a Git repo because I felt like it. Also so others could use them however they wanted.

There are a few which don’t reside on there as well. A good example is some of the songs I’m trying to learn like Recuerdos de la Alhambra by Francisco Tarrega.

Recuerdos de la Alhambra progress

My fingers are still trying to get familiar with a lot of the chords and fingerings used throughout the song. In time I’ll get it though.
