    Just curious to see what kind of resolutions everyone is making (if you are making a resolution at all this year). This year I want to gain 10-15lbs of muscle and keep my 4.0 GPA.

    What about everyone else?

    To see in 2013. Anything else is an optional extra. :)

    Lose 60 pounds before I transfer schools. That will officially be my new start.

    Well, my 2010 NY resolutions were:

    1. Become a better cook (successful).
    2. Create a budget and learn to handle my money better (successful).



    This year, my resolutions are a bit more difficult to succeed in:

    1. I'm absolutely clueless about investing money (I should just go to my bank and have one of those financial advisors/investors do this for me :rolleyes:), so my goal is to learn about investing and do something with my money.

    2. Learn to play the ukulele.

    I hope I'm more successful this year.

    I generally don't do resolutions as they seem to fail by February. Instead I try to be a better person in the new year then in the prior year.

    For this year, I guess I'd have to say it would be to have a more positive outlook on things. Looking back on how I handled some situations this year made me realize I missed out on a lot by being negative, and so the only thing I want to do is change that and try to be more positive.

    :)

    To not watch Dick Clark next New Year's Eve, too depressing

    Outside of that, my resolution is to get a permanent teaching position instead of substituting and odd jobs

    Meh, I don't make resolutions. They seem too cheesy and easy to break.

    Then again, I have managed to drink an entire fifth of Jameson's tonight, so I may not be thinking clearly.

    I literally wrote out a page in my notebook for resolutions.

    Mainly because there are a lot of areas that I need to improve, in order to achieve my goals this year.

    It essentially boiled down to: work harder/be more pro-active, get healthy, worry less, and be happy.:)

    Making Resoloutions

    Is a little like the old "Round to it" thing. If you are going to eat more fruit, read more literature, and as a member above posted "do the girl in apt whatever" then you will only do so if you are going to.

    Write it down everywhere, tell your friends so they can say "I knew you wouldn't"

    I don't make them. Therefore, they can not be broken, and I will not sit head in hands moaning...!

    Happy REALISTIC New Year all:)
