I'm planning on writing an app for personal use on Windows phone 8, but I have no idea how to test it or install it without going through the windows store.

How can I install an app on a phone for testing?

You have to register the phone for development. Make sure to read how to develop and test your app on windows phone specifically and about windows phone development in general.
