a proper restart and some resolutions

I've been lax due to mostly a death in the family and the recovery from Christmas but finding a rogue like game on the pebble didn't help.  I've also started this post a few times and then been interrupted or it's been pointed out that I need to assist in the taking down of decorations.
Excuses aside here's some plans for what I'm going to do in the next year:

Get the lunch.ben.best app running*

I was really quite disappointed that I didn't manage to build this in time for Christmas.  However I managed Christmas lunch more than successfully without it.  That shouldn't be an excuse not to get it finished.

Have a pull request accepted into an open source project

This is just something I've been wanting to do for a while I've got loads from using open source software and it would be nice to give something back.

Play with pebble.js

Although the majority of pebble apps are written in C and I could go back an re-learn that it's not something that inspires me.  However playing with javascript has been really interesting these last few months so that's probably where I'm going to go with this.

Finally something interesting - plague

I've been playing with plague on the phone, it's horribly addictive and I'm finding it an interesting guilt free social network.  The concept is quite simple, you swipe up to send an article (which can be text, an image a link etc.) to the people near you or down to not send it on.  I've found some interesting bits. My largest concern with it is if it does gain in popularity then it'll be filled with less savoury images and links, that have thankfully so far been missing.

*By running I mean in a state that I can use it for cooking a meal, once that's done I'll look at additions and shine.
