New Years Resolutions

So who is going to bother with this pointless tradition? I've never understood this and the ones I set I never even attempt to actually meet.

Why wait until January 1st if you're serious about it?

Why wait until January 1st if you're serious about it?

Because just like Christmas New Years and resolutions are a tradition (at least in the US). Though, I've learned my life is too unpredictable to even bother with resolutions so I just don't mess with them. Last year was the last year I made one.

I mean, it's silly to say "well, I need to lose weight now but... it's tradition to start on the 1st so I'll just wait." Then a few months later that fails and the line then is "well, there's always next year." Don't wait because other idiots are waiting. Act now, fail sooner and you'll be ahead of the curve.

I have #1 and #3 out of that list now, I wonder if that counts for anything? :D Going to work on #2. ;D

I did some traveling this year, so yeah -- I held to my resolution for 2012. I'm not sure what I'll do for 2013 just yet.

That used to be my resolution, well one of them. After three years of not achieving them, I figure why bother making them.

I already started (and completed) my resolution to lose 10 pounds (I figured "why wait" as well). I guess my resolution now is to make sure I keep in my healthier habits.

I'll do an easy resolution, to listen to more Fozzy.

I am going to The Orange Bowl in Miami on January 1.

It makes me happy inside knowing that my puny university's qualifying for the game has greatly upset all the big name schools who wanted a piece of the 18 million dollar payout. >:(

Yes, they will get crushed, and I will cry like a baby. :'(

For 2013, it is my intention to draw a lot more and to start with oil painting.

Well... already started on the draw more part a couple of weeks ago.

That being said, this place needs more doodle(r)s to keep doodle threads alive. :)

Ok, from now on, every thread is a doodle thread. 8-)

I doodle a lot, but don't bother scanning them in.

Shit at labor? ??? Scanning pictures isn't labor. :p Though, in terms of labor, I guarantee no one on this forum could do what I have to do everyday for my son due to the trach and feeding tube :P.

My resolution for 2012 was to not keep any of my resolutions for 2012. You tell me whether I succeeded.

How are we supposed to know whether you put your resolution in your pocket to carry it around at all times or whether you threw it out the window, thus not "keeping" it. ;D

I always keep all my new year resolutions. Usually I keep them secret.

Don't know about having any resolutions, personally, but I was playing around with creating a game in A5 last year that contained one...

Resolution

...so maybe that stands good for this year, if I can just get my head together again.

Happy 2013 all!
