Bring 'em out, Pit. What are your goals/aspirations/resolutions for 2012? A fresh start in a few days, perhaps toward our doom.

My goals for 2012:

1) Limit cigarettes to one a month, at the end of every month.
2) Limit coffee to twice a week at most.
3) Read for at least 1 hour every day. Read for 2 hours if possible.
4) At least 50 pushups and 100 crunches every day.

That's all for me. Four simple guidelines to make me healthier and wealthier than ever. I've never made new year's resolutions thus far, but I figured I might as well start this year to use some arbitrary day in the Gregorian calendar to get me motivated to fix a couple of things I need to fix anyway.

Wishing you all the best of luck in your resolutions,


p.s. sticky this?

3. Get that tan, start cutting phase and work abs harder Jan.
4. Read more, no television

2. not say an uncharitable thing about anyone at all.

I don't understand why people make New Year's resolutions. For one, they just abandon them within the first half of the year, and second why wait until the new year? If it's really important then start now.

everything that you've come to expect

Don't have any real resolutions, just gonna try to be better than last year in general.

I mean, I had a pretty cool year overall but I'm going to try and be less of an unsociable weirdo so that I don't end up spending every night at home on the internet. Not sure if i'll manage that but i'll give it a shot.

The problem most people have is they set unrealistic goals, that's why my resolutions are simple.

It's good to start at the beginning of a new year because it allows you to give in to temptation over the holiday period. It's also good to have a clear start and end to your goals for tracking your progress.

Off the top of my head with little thought:

1. Read at least 5 books of my own accord
2. Write
3. Ride Bike/pushups/workout shit
4. Help make the world a better place to live
5. Appreciate and enjoy life

I have never made resolutions before, but i'm seriously going to try to get my confused mess of a life in order next year. Wish me luck.

For me:
1. Get built like an ancient Greek god
2. Be more awesome
Warning: The above post may contain lethal levels of radiation, sharp objects and sexiness.
Proceed with extreme caution!
I'll probably have the same one as last year, which is to lose weight and get more fit. Last year my goal was to lose 50 lbs, and I'm down 40. So close enough

I've also decided to learn piano in the new year, teach myself to sing properly, and to have a ~30 minute EP written, recorded and mixed by year's end. I think I can do all that.

1. Repeat 2011, cuz 2011 was awesome
This too. Well, at least put January - June on repeat forever. July onward kind of sucked.

1) Don't make the same mistakes with women that I made this year
2) Be generally nicer and more charitable to people
3) Spend some time actually playing my guitar rather than being on this forum
4) Actually save for the guitar I want this year instead of blowing it all on a computer that I didn't really need.

My one and only resolution will be to gtfo of this boring miserable city. I might end up with all the same vices and problems I currently have, but at least I'll be somewhere new.
And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust? Man delights not me: no, nor woman neither... nor women neither.
This year I'll try not to drink too much. This year I'll try to stand up for myself. This year I'll live like I never lived before, this is my year for sure.

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.
1. Decided on something to do with my life.
2. Actually lose the weight I've been wanting to lose for too long.
3. Be less of a anti-social dick.
4. Improve self-confidence and general social skills (hoping this may be helped by weight loss, as that currently holds me back a bit)
5. Sort out my school work so that the last 2 years weren't a waste of time.
6. Progress musically, mainly by joining a band or actually recording the songs that I write.

That's about it. It's going to be a big year, but I'd say I'm pretty ****ing motivated for it.
Have a better year than 2011.
If not, don't even bother with 2013.

That's it
