    And this one is where I shall engage in dib-calling :p

    As it is, my resolutions this year are rather simple:

    1. I will not start smoking

    2. I will complete my nanovel

    3. I shall participate in a short story competition I have always intended to take part in since 1998

    (and sort of 4. prticipate in NaNo again but that's sort of a given...)

    Also, this here says that my randomy generated resolution is that I will no longer check my e-mail at 3 am... :angel:

    What about you guys?

    I can promise only one thing:

    To find my first, real job. As real as it gets and the pay according to it, and I do not mean those cheap pizza-jobs. Anyone interested of hiring me? I don't mind going international and I have a CV online. ;)

    randomly generated resolution:
    "Getting myself admitted to a mental institution."

    Shouldn't be too hard. ;)

    Not making any other resolutions. I've got enough pressure on me as it is.

    [​IMG] I rarely make resolutions, but here goes...

    1) I will try to get to Grade Four in Fencing (Just starting Grade Three. The two boys who have been doing it for a couple of years are at a similar stage I think, so hopefully I'll be able to get more grades, hopefully, those boys are damned good though.)

    2) I will try to get my room straightened and keep it so (Been a lot of rarranging and decorating last year, so I want to get sorted this year.)

    3) I will keep more than three fish alive at any one time in my tank, (most I've had so far in the tank is six, lasted quite a while but I want to try and keep it up, perhaps introducing them differently...)

    4) I will revise for my GCSEs. (Didn't revise for mocks - results I've got so far are all As and A*s except French. But I dislike French anyway, got a B and C in that.)

    5) My secret resolution. Been working towards it quite some time now and hopefully I'll be able to get there. ^_^

    To get our band signed up to a label before the end of the year. It's time to make a move, we can't stay in the garage forever.

    To get out of the closet and admit that you are a cannibal? What? No? Let me try again: to get out of the closet and admit that you are a 8ball? :D

    Hmmm, for 2005 I shall...

    1) Save up for a new computer and buy one that kicks ass...

    2) Throw my old one out of a window, preferably one in a tall building...

    3) Steal a car and run over the remains of my old computer repeatedly...

    [​IMG] Wirhe - not quite :shake:

    It's just something I have wanted to do for quite a few months and now it's something I *have* to do. Still if I can turn it into some sort of holiday with Mutti and her bf coming along I might have a better chance of achieving this.

    But I assure you I am not a cannibal and am not an 8 ball. Not quite the correct shape :p

    I've already made my new year's resolution not to smoke but I've already broken it, only 3 times today instead of the usual 25 so I am not doing that badly. ****ing cigs man there is no easy way out :toofar: :cry: I guess I should make more resolutions but arn't I spose to make em' before new year's day? I guess I can't make any more now so I'll have to wait until next year.

    Goooo procrastination! :D

    My resolutions usually last a few days and then it goes out the window, so no goals for me.

    1. Go to the gym and eat less before I can't fit out the door.

    2. Stop staying up until all ours of the night. If I am at home, be in bed by mignight.

    3. Begin to *shudder* budget.

    Oh how I'll try.

    I'll try not too rob old ladies anymore, but can't make any definite promises, maybe i'll switch to bashing gays. :D

    I also want to drink more alcohol in 2005, in 2004 i got tipsy one time a week, and that's not enough.

    I recently stopped smoking, so my only resolution is not to gain too many additional through this. :p
