2014 New Year Resolutions - not all Discworld related!

Postby Slantaholic » Thu Jan 02, 2014 1:42 am

I'll go first. I want more than diet/health/diy/sherlock.

* My new year resolution is to promise to read ALL of Raising Steam, rather than rant about it with you.
* I hope to find my way into a Real Life Discworld meet in my own country, the UK.
* To explore s***ing Facebook. I've got nothing but my Real Life name on it. I hate the f***ing thing already.
* To return to Discworld MUD and have my witch learn spells to advance, rather than jumping into the River Ankh all the time to pillage corpses, and having bubble baths, and try to figure out what other players get up to. So many of them are so advanced.
* To buy more sugar-free, dairy-free chocolate from somewhere other than Holland & Barretts. I'm addicted to their honey Halva product to the point of eating a packet at a go using a tablespoon. Chocolate is less addictive!
* To review more Discworld fanfictions of many chapters, rather than staring at my own low lousy review count.

Anyone else?

Well, without a doubt, after indulging in all kinds of holiday goodies and having my exercise routine disrupted, having to say that I have to get back on track with all of that is unavoidable. :roll: But I don't know if that really counts as a resolution. Other than that, I have lots of photo projects that I'd like to get completed and I'd love to clear out the basement some more. Our big goal is to get the kitchen remodel finished! And once that's done, we want to paint the living room, the entrance stairs at the back door and I would love to completely redo the downstairs bathroom. That's my wish list. For now. :D

I'm going to guess that it's not family friendly? :lol:

I've been increasingly bad at keeping up any sort of fitness regime, but this year I'm determined to change that and take up running.
I think wicked woman's right - catching up with friends is the next priority :dance:

Don't really do resolution but I'm going to have to go with getting up before noon most days I think - too many things to get done and they keep messing with Buffy on SyFy so I'm running out of reasons to stay up late... :shifty:
