Wow. Looking back at last year:I'm going to finish my novel and get published
I'm going to make significant steps towards getting my house (or just get it)
I'm going to make the time to have a real girlfriend
I'm going to pay more attention to my friends and check their MySpace
I am a jerk, but I'm going to try and be a little nicer when I explain "why"
I'm going to learn how to take better care of myself
I'm going to not be lazy and actually take better care of myself
Hmmm....1. lose weight and get myself back under 200 pounds.
2. give up sodas completely, stick to water and herbal teas
3. learn how to cook so I can avoid fast food
Check.*graduate high school
Check, but I want to find a better one.*start college (if I get accepted, which I assume I will be)
Check, for the most part. I'm home on break right now and my college isn't too far away anyway.*get settled in the new house right before moving to college
There was more stupidity involved here than I care to remember . . . :dead:*work out my current "relationship issues" (which I seriously hope will be resolved within the next year)
Check!*buy more Star Wars stuff that I really don't need
Goals, He funny I should have wrote these downLike KH, I don't make New Years resolutions like I used to anymore, because I don't see any use when I know I won't keep up with them. However my goals for 2006 are to:
Didn't happen, instead I think I gained a few pounds, well except before my wedding, I lost some weight, but not enough to feel really good about myself, my wife and I would go out for walks each evening, but our eating habits were less then they could be.Lose 40 pounds
Got that one, I now work about 65 hours a week, big change there.....not!Work less than 75 hours a week
i did manage to get off that junk for about 4 mionths, started feeling really good about myself, was drinking more water, but then I drank just one, and got an IV of Diet Pepsi hooked up to me. (I wish)Get off of Diet Pepsi (it's like a drug, I just can't shake)
This one I managed to keep, I had my legs checked by a few doctors, and had laser surgery done, it seems the spots were from iron deposits from the vericous veins. I hate my legs, and you will never see me in shorts!Get the spots on my legs checked by a doctor/get a medical health check
Hmmm, I'm trying to remember what girl I took to a movie. I don't think it ever happened, oh well, I'm married now so it doesn't matter.Yes I do, I have a movie I am going to see with a girl tomorrow. She has a boyfriend, but it sounds like this guy does nothing for her, including taking her out to the movies. It will be nice to see a movie with someone of the oppisite sex. I would like a girlfriend too, but my life is just to busy to have a successful relationship, so this will be the closest thing to it, without having to have a girlfriend.
Since others are checking their lists, I resolve to do the same.In the year 2008 I will* resolve to:
- be more "spiritual" (can't go into specifics without turning this into a Rancor Pit thread).
- take less obsession and time with my job, beyond expected levels.
- really work on my book. Seriously.
- still try to read 30+ books this summer (maybe break the 10,000 page barrier this time )
- look into a Masters program
- travel out of the area at least once

I can't wait, it seems like, from what I've read it will be an awesome book!I DID finish my novel and had it professionally edited. I'm in a revision stage right now, but I will be published.
Thanks Sith_Killer99.I can't wait, it seems like, from what I've read it will be an awesome book!
2009 was actually a year of good luck and great progress for me. I originally logged on to start a thread about that. 2010 should be much better, but I will look back fondly at 2009, as it was a milestone year in my life - and why I'm even alive to see 2010!Anyway, I hope you all have a wonderful New Year. Thankfully 2009 is gone and with it perhaps the bad luck that seemed to close out the decade.
That's possible. I'm involved in volunteering for Donate Life already.Tycho, in terms of your political career, I would recommend going to work as a political adviser. Stay out of the ring, but help other with their agenda, help officials to get elected, etc. The other option would be to go to work as a lobbyist. That would give you an opportunity to advocate for something you believe in and develop a real sense of accomplishment.
I recommend the NRA!
I know. I know. Working on it today I hope.Oh, and finish that novel, I am dying to read it
