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) 😉
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 😉 (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 😉
(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!
That’s to funny, sounds like a happy holiday time.
It definitely was!
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!
Hey Eric – No I haven’t tried it yet. I’ll have to look for it next time I’m out. Thanks for the tip!
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 (I’m a total sucker for any holiday movie/cartoon – Though National Lampoon Christmas Vacation is still my favorite)”
Happy New Year Matt!
Look forward to see where you’re going next!
Fun list, but the IPA debacle really brings a tear to my eye! Have a great New Year and I really enjoy your blog!
Thanks Evan. You too!
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. 🙂
