+title: The year that was & the year to come
+layout: post
+---
+
+Another year has passed, this one is shaping up to be a better one than the previous. One thing that's always on the top of my list, every year, is that i would like to write more. For some reason, things are always getting in the way and distracting me from writing. More importantly i don't really know what i _should write_, and when i'm finally sitting down to write something, it's a real struggle to write something i'm somewhat satisfied with. I guess i'm "not alone in this":http://adactio.com/journal/6632/.
+
+At least i have a general idea of what i would like to write about this year. I would like to write more about what i've learned and how i solve problems, related to designing and developing for the web. That's how i learned when i got started and that's what is so great about the web. Something i find very valuable is when other people write about how they approach certain problems or challanges. That's the great thing about the web, sharing. So i hope to do more of that, writing and _sharing_.

+I'd like to spend some time on "autogrow":https://github.com/carlrafting/autogrow and "designgrid":https://github.com/carlrafting/designgrid, improve them a bit. There's some enhancements i have mind for designgrid, make the script more customizable and squash some bugs. Try using designgrid without a stylesheet and see how that goes... <small>(Hint: it might crash your browser!)</small>. I also have an idea for a new project i like to do as well.

+Last year around this time, i spent about two and a half months helping out the guys over at "Republic":http://republic.se. They recently "launched the project i helped out with":https://www.facebook.com/republicfactory/posts/10152046175545960. I'm really grateful for spending the time at Republic since they're hard working and super busy guys. I did most of the initial development, building the admin, calendar and the welcome areas. I got to learn a bit about "CodeIgniter":http://ellislab.com/codeigniter and "Sass":http://sass-lang.com, this was actually the first project i've ever used Sass on, and i've come to use it ever since.

+A lot of time the past year, has been devoted to studies. Now i only have a few months left of my "education":http://www.jenseneducation.se/JENSEN-yrkeshogskola/. One more period, three months, of work practice left then i'm done with my studies… For now. I'm hoping i can get back to working again. I've learned a lot since last time when "i worked at nodestar":http://nodestar.se, so there's a lot more i can do now.
