Skills to Learn in 2017

In the vein of “you can’t stop the learning,”1 I’ve been thinking a lot about what’s next to stuff into my brain. Rather than have a huge, unrealistic laundry list of things I want to learn in 2017, I’m going to list two things I want to learn, and one thing I want to hone my skills at.


  • Mixed Martial Arts
    There’s a local school that teaches a blend of Muay Thai kickboxing, Jeet Kun Do, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Kali Panantukan (“dirty boxing”), and Kali Weaponry. Seems pretty cool.
  • Carbon Fiber Layup
    This year will largely be about tinkering/getting familiar with the material. I’ll probably trying molding stuff and making tubes from scratch, and then testing to the point of destruction, but that may be all the farther I get in 2017.


  • PHP/Wordpress Skills
    I started scratching the surface of this in 2016. I want to get really f’n good at this in 2017.


What skills are you looking to acquire in 2017?
