Published First iOS App
What can I say, 2019 has been a hell of a year. I finally pulled together all of the knowledge I’ve gained over the past year and a half and released my first app to the App Store. Its called The Nexus. You can read more about it here. In just the first 24 hours, 100 users signed up for it. In just two weeks I gained 200 more users. Its been so fun making it, and the feedback I’ve been receiving from it has been so great!
Offered First iOS Development Job
I’ve also been offered my first full time iOS Development Role. I’ll be making a full post about the process I went through to get it, but I am beyond excited to start the position and meet my team. This entire time I’ve coded from the time I woke up until the time I went to my night job, and repeated everyday. Its going to be so amazing to be able to code for work, and then have the rest of the time for myself to be a functioning human!
First Goal For 2020
My first goal for 2020 is to just excel at my new job and learn as much as I can from everyone around me. This is going to be my first time working with other developers, and I’m intimidated. Its also going to be my first chance to test what I know against other developers. Being self taught, there may be gaps in my knowledge that I’m not aware of, so it will be interesting to see just what I’m over prepared for in a Jr Developer role, and what I might not be as prepared for as I’d hoped! No matter what though, it will be fun, and I’m going to learn so much, and I can’t wait to meet the rest of the team I’ll be working with on the 6th!
Second For 2020
My second goal is to finally drop back down to a healthy weight and give up alcohol. I know there are people out there who can manage to drink and not gain weight, but it seems I am not one of them. When I gave up drinking before I lost 60 pounds almost without even trying. Since I picked drinking back up, Ive gained 40 of that back. Its time to change all that, because getting a buzz isn’t worth my health.
Third Goal For 2020
My third goal is to finish a secret app I’ve been working on with my brother Rich who created Global Money World, an amazing platform for independent musicians to get their music reviewed and shown to the world. I can’t say much about the app just yet, but its pretty amazing if I do say so.
Fourth Goal For 2020
My fourth and final goal of 2020 is to finally write a novel thats been in my head for years. I’m aiming for 70k words. I know all of this sounds like a lot, but if I’ve broken all of these down into small achievable goals that build on each other, and this isn’t my first rodeo, I manage my time very well, and have broken it all down into steps that never get overwhelming, and I’m more than fine with just getting as close as I can with all of these goals, even if I don’t hit them directly in the center.
Goodbye 2019, And Thank You!
I have a lot planned for 2020, and so much new content ready for the site. I hope you all have amazing goals and that you achieve them all. See you in 2020!
