My Random Holiday Accomplishments That Have Absolutely Nothing To Do With Anything

In Personal by Matt K9 Comments

Happy New Year everyone! I’m getting back in to “work”-mode and thought I’d post an absolutely useless list of some random holiday accomplishments (or lack of) of mine.

Number of Photography-related gifts I received: Zero (I think my family has finally realized that I buy everything I want when it comes to photography) šŸ˜‰

Number of Kid’s Presents That Needed Book Sized Directions to Put Together? 6

Number of Presents Attempted Without Directions Until I Realized I Was Stupid Before Attempting It: 3 (I’m a slow learner)

Number of iTunes Gift Cards Bought: 5

Number of iTunes Gift Cards Received: 5 šŸ˜‰ Ā (it’s a wash)

Number of Times I Wore My Ugly Holiday Sweater: 13

Number of Times I Embarrassed My Kids By Wearing My Holiday Sweater: 13

Number of Times Worn Consecutively Without Washing It: 8 šŸ˜‰

(here’s a really bad iPhone photo below of the really bad sweater)

Number of Books Read: 1 (Kindle version of “Jab Jab Jab Right Hook” by Gary Vaynerchuck – Awesome book btw!)

Number of New Years Resolutions Made: 1 (eat less carbs)

Number of Resolutions I’m Sure I Broke on the First Day: 1

Number Holiday Shows Watched: 34 (I’m a total sucker for any holiday movie/cartoon – Though National Lampoon Christmas Vacation is still my favorite)

Number of IPA beers Drank Over the Week: 28.5 (sadly half of one of my Dogfish 90 minute IPAs was horrifically spilled one night)

Number of Photos Taken With DSLR: 0

Number of Photos Taken With iPhone: 112

Number of Holiday Cookies Eaten: Let’s just say I’m hittin’ my Crossfit gym hard this week

Number of Gems Spent In Clash of Clans: 132

Time Spent Drooling Over Winter Photos on 500px.com: Hours! I could just stare at them all day! Here’s a link to my latest favorites.

Best Customer Service Witnessed Over Holiday: It’s a tie between Delta Airlines and Enterprise Car Rental. They both went above and beyond during some travel issues.

All joking aside, I sincerely hope you had a wonderful holiday and happy new year. Have a good one!

    Happy New Year Matt. That Frosty hoody is pretty “wow” alright. My boys would be walking 6 feet behind me if I was wearing that. Not surprised you didn’t pull the DSLR out at all. I didn’t take any family shots with mine either this Christmas, but I did use it for some close up ornament shots. Oh, and I hear you on the carb thing too. šŸ™‚

    This two were my favorites:
    “Number of Photography-related gifts I received: Zero (I think my family has finally realized that I buy everything I want when it comes to photography)”
    &
    “Number Holiday Shows Watched: 34 (Iā€™m a total sucker for any holiday movie/cartoon ā€“ Though National Lampoon Christmas Vacation is still my favorite)”

    Happy New Year Matt!
    Look forward to see where you’re going next!

    Matt – Happy Holidays! I always knew you had good taste….Dogfish 90 minute IPA is one of my favorites have you tried their Burton Baton? It’s a little pricey but very worth it!

    Keep up the great work!
