That hits home. One year I resolved to stop wasting so much time on the internet, and promptly wasted most of New Year's Day on the internet!

In general, I don't do New Year's resolutions anymore. I resolve every day to be a better person than I was yesterday, but that's an incremental process, and it sometimes goes the wrong way. Nothing magic will happen on New Year's Day. It will be a struggle against my darker and uglier side like any other day.

RE: New Year's Resolutions
I'd never heard of New Year's Resolutions until I was a Junior in college. Crazy but true.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

RE: New Year's Resolutions
I just want to get married already, been together 9 years, engaged 3, and out of excuses, we're in great shape, got the money, got the time, hopefully Trump doesn't start WWIII and we both die but I'm determined, I don't care if we have to crawl over corpses and burning cars, we're getting to city hall, we're signing the damn papers and exchanging rings...and we're gonna move into a new house. That's pretty much all I have for 2017.

But really, I should read more stuff. I also still want to get better at chess.

RE: New Year's Resolutions
Nothing huge.

Making some minor adjustments to my fitness routine. Still hitting my French studies pretty hard.

I'll continue trying to gather clues as to where we might be deploying next so that can be a consideration as to the next language I turn my attention to. I'll be at least familiarizing myself with Swahili through Duolingo.com since their course is supposed to open by the end of January. Easy way to learn the basics without too much of a time commitment. As an alternative, I'd been dabbling in Chipewyan and Inuktitut before I got laid off from my remote security gig at the diamond mine up north. I'd like to get back into that just in case I stumble across another opportunity for work at that (if it opens back up) or other isolated sites across Canada. My current job pays pretty good, but I Censored hate working within the correctional system.

RE: New Year's Resolutions
Without trying to sound like a buzzkill, I don't need a designated day of the year to make myself a better person, I just do it.

Check out my now-defunct atheism blog. It's just a blog, no ads, no revenue, no gods.

RE: New Year's Resolutions
Several years ago I resolved not to make any more New Years Resolutions.

Flesh and blood of a dead star, slain in the apocalypse of supernova, resurrected by four billion years of continuous autocatalytic reaction and crowned with the emergent property of sentience in the dream that the universe might one day understand itself.
