How am I doing on my Goals?

So back in January, I wrote out my 7 goals for the year. It's been two months, so let's see how I'm doing :

1. Become FULLY polyphasic

I'm close on this one. Many days I go perfectly, sometimes if I have nothing to do I oversleep and then skip some naps during the day. I'm actually pretty satisfied with that, as I'm only sleeping 2.5-4.5 hours per night, I'm never tired, and can always count on being awake early and staying up late. I'll keep pressing to be more consistent, but I'm satisfied with where I am.

What I have learned after one year of uninterrupted Symfony2 development

This is my first entry written in English. I'm doing this as a way of improving my writing skills, so please forgive any language inaccuracies and errors!

This past year I have been working with this framework, Symfony2, in a large-scale project involving several high-end technologies. We chose to use this framework to develop our base code because the team already had an expert PHP and other framework experiences. After a year of writing a lot of the code that the application currently uses, I can't help but write some personal thoughts about it.

Much has been said about this great framework. It is now safe to say that Symfony2 is the best PHP framework out there, for many reasons. I find the next the most important ones:

One of the things I realized after reviewing many frameworks is that they lack excellence. This is just a reflect of the real-world PHP programming scene: most of the developers out there lacks excellence too. If you think about it, the PHP framework scene just respond to what kind of developers make use of the language.
