2014 Year in Review

2014 Year in Review

Part of my list of ideas and hopes for this year is to write and post more frequently than in previous years.

  1. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?
    Enjoyed wonderful meal at Japanese place in Knoxville, then celebrating with family. I was 44.
  2. What are your strongest memories from this year, and why?
    Exhaustion from working so many hours at KIA. Then fear and peace about moving to Hardin Valley. Elation at being with my family so much after being gone too much the previous 14 months.
  3. What did you do this year that you’d never done before?
    Moved older children from their friends.
  4. What did you want and get?
    Wanted to spend more time with family and be involved in the work of God full time.
  5. What would you like to have next year that you didn’t have this year?
    A book written.
  6. What was your biggest achievement of this year?
    Following God’s will to an unknown, unfamiliar place. Also, not taking credit for any of the awesome things He did. That is His glory alone.
  7. What did you rely on when you were overwhelmed?
    The Lord and my sweet wife, Andrea.
  8. What song will remind you of this year?
    When God Has Another Plan sung by Andrea Holloman

  13. Compared to this time last year, how are you different?
    Settled, Adventurous
  14. Compared to this time last year, how are you the same?
    Confident that God Can
  15. What’s a life lesson you learned this year?
    I can always trust the Lord.

I discovered these questions on one of my favorite former student’s blog Dash of Ash . She also frequents twitter at  http://twitter.com/ashleybmcneese

Favorite Web and Phone Apps

For the next few weeks, I will be posting about some of my favorite web apps and phone apps. I have an Android phone and my snooty wife (just kidding) has an iPhone 4 so we are familiar with both of the major OS choices. Both of us use computers fairly heavily and I travel enough to appreciate any help to stay effective on the road.

Right now I plan to review the following:

  • Google Voice
  • Expensify
  • Dropbox
  • Google Docs (Drive)
  • Delicious and GetPocket

Each of these (and quite a few more) all add up to a lot of time saved and productivity gained in a day or a week’s time.
