It's that time of year - the time when celebrate another year gone by, party way too hard, wake up the next morning, and vow to change our ways.

Or something. What are all of your hopes, dreams, and goals for the next year? Are you doing anything about them now?

I have three myself:

1) Remove the accursed popcorn ceiling texture from every room in my house.
2) Skydive.
3) Get in good enough shape to cosplay as Kratos for Otakon 2008.

To those ends, I am

1) Engaged in a fierce battle with the popcorn in the office and guest bedroom.
2) Saving money :P
3) Biking to work instead of driving, running regularly, and doing yoga (that shit WORKS, man.)

Post your resolutions and discuss, post why you aren't making any, or post about your resolutions from last year and to what extent you kicked their asses.

My main resolutions are:

1.) Eat less
2.) Eat healthier
3.) PLAY MORE FIELD HOCKEY
4.) Be nicer
5.) Study more often :p

I've already started cutting down my intake (god bless shitty college food <3) and I've started eating a lot more veggies/fruits. As far as field hockey goes, I'll be coaching a team in February and 'll hopefully be playing on the club team at my college this spring, if it ever gets up and running. and I'll be playing field hockey next summer too :nuts

I can be a very mean person, and I'm trying to cut down, but it's an integral part of my personality :p

The studying thing, well, I study a good deal now, I just think studying more would be helpful, especially since my classes will only get harder and harder

i don't usually make resolutions, but i guess i'll give it a shot:

1. exercise more - it's on everyone's list, i know. my friend and i are joining a gym after new year's, so i'm hoping having a buddy to drag my ass there will help me stick to it

2. stick up for myself more - i'm waaaay too nice and easy-going and i always end up getting walked all over. no more doormat!

3. put myself out there more on the dating scene - i'm always so shy :fan well, i did get hit on last night by my creepy cab driver, though -_-;

4. read more manga! - gotta have at least one that's easy to keep :amuse

I pretty much already made my resolution a long time ago for this year:

1) Do well in graduate school.

To that ends I've been studying history since August. I took a break from it the last two months though, and I'm not too sure that I should have but at least I'll be heading into the first semester fresh to go.

oooooh geez....I gotta admit, I'm awful with New Year's resolutions :darn Usually I just forget about them after a month or so :XD

But still, I should at least pretend I'm going to reform some aspect of my life this year, right? :shakefist

~ I have to stop being so lazy and eat healthier meals. Frozen egg rolls and Guinness for dinner is yummy, but isn't exactly going to add years to my life. So I'm going to try to make myself actually cook fresh food once in a while, especially food that's high in protein.

~ Wake up earlier! Since I'm really affected by the lack of sunlight in the winter, I have to start getting up earlier so that there are more sunny hours in my day ^^

~ Try not to speed...so much....while driving. I can't afford another $80 speeding ticket or another mark on my record :shifty

~ Brush up on my French and Spanish ^^ No point in learning a language if you're never going to use it, after all :p

~ And my most important resolution...start playing the piano again <333 I miss it too much, and reading Nodame Cantabile only makes me want to play again even more :amuse

Ganbatte everyone!

:tem .... OK, I can come up with a few:

1 - Finish my studies as planned ... in June. Won't let them fail me.
2 - Get out of my "room-kitchen-university-room" routine. Start after the June.
3 - Do at least 20% more eccentric stuff. And I really mean it.
4 - Be able to read RAW chapter in less than half an hour.

.... I really hope I'll be able to do them. :amuse

1. Stop being lazy and start studying.. half a year where I've basically done nothing.
2. Exercise - both running and body building. Both my vitality and strength are way too low :darn
3. Get a driver license. Driving without one isn't as cheap as you might think (if you get caught :s)

And to prepare for these I have:

1) Been preparing myself mentally, heh.
2) Bought all kind of exercising tools~
3) Saving money and money and money...


Doing anymore than these three would seriously be a pain in the behind (and I'm not even sure I'll even do all three).

Hey, I realize that we are either too self-centered of we just have perfect relationship with our friends and families.

There is not "I want to be closer to my mom" sort of post up there. O___o

That's just my observation. XD

My New Year’s Resolution remains the same every year, to honor my vows I made to God. :)

Well ..... If some of us like me would add a resolution related to that it'd rather sound:
"I'll make my relatives, especially parents, leave me alone more." (Doesn't sound too positive does it >_>)

Must be related to the fact that modern youth exercise bigger freedom and feel less bound to family.

Plus ..... How does such a thing make a nice New Year resolution. It's not very challenging, nor does it have significant benefits. Making ten new friends or doing ten good things are more measurable wishes.
