Since I created this blog to keep myself accountable to my plans and learning, I thought I should make a list of projects I plan; partly to make sure I follow through with at least most of them, but also so I don’t forget. Included in this will be a list of techniques I want to accomplish, as this will help me see how much I have learned. This page will (obviously) be edited often.
