In my own mind
Independently deployed two iOS apps that are actually useful and downloaded everyday. Spend most of my off-time coding objective-c and building the backend of my apps using node.js.
Built a game with XNA Framework using C# and realized that video game developers have a hard job.
Big fan of Adobe tools for my graphics in my apps.
Hated my MacBookPro, until I went to OWC and upgraded the RAM to 16 Gigs and replaced the HD with an "Extreme" SSD.
