Viva la Resolution!

Outside of getting a job, or failing that, commercially releasing a game, nothing in particular comes to mind (maybe losing 10 pounds, but if I'm going to do that I might as well go whole hog and lose 15-20 pounds instead).
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Sleep. 

I already played a "Metal Ball" show with my current band this past Friday night and played a reunion show with my old band Saturday night.  I've ended my year on a kickass rock star note. 
Games I've given Editor's Choice to:
Ever 17, Hourglass of Summer, Anachronox, Persona PSP, Radiant Historia, To The Moon, Revolution 60

We haven't done anything for New Years Eve in years. Nan always conks out early. We'll probably play a board game with the kid, then share some wine later. That's it.

I haven't made resolutions in forever, but I'm forcing myself to do so this year. Some I can't share here, but a couple I can.
- Get to bed earlier! I go to bed too late, and wake up too early. Not at all good for my health. I'm making 10:30 my new mark. I'm trying to be reasonable.
- More exercise. I'm skinny, so it's not about losing weight. I need to strengthen my muscles, and improve my flexibility. Hard to do with Chronic pain issues, which is why I haven't been doing it.
- finally sign up for Master Gardener classes. I've been waiting for my son to get older to do this because I'll have to take night/weekend classes. Plus, becoming a Master Gardener comes with a requirement to give back to the community. Volunteering and all that. I like the idea of spreading the love of plants and horticulture, but have never been big on the time requirement. I think I'm ready now.

I guess my resolution would be to not lay around for a few hours on my days off. Wake up earlier and do shit? Better start on that.

I've got a few different options for tonight. +1 is probably going to do a thing w/ her family. I may just end up staying in and playing games. I haven't done that since I moved into my new apartment.

To get through to the New World Saga of One Piece.

To buy less games and play more of what I already have.

To actually finish some anime this year, instead of watching a few episodes then going back to One Piece.

To draw way more than I did this year.

And To Get a Job.

I may have some contradictions and skewed priorities in this list...

New Year's Eve is my absolute favorite holiday of the year and I will be partying like 2012 was the best year ever (which it was, supplanting 2011 before that and 2010 before that). The only thing that is going to be better is 2013!

My only resolution is to continue dropping weight at reasonable and healthy pace - I have dropped close to 40 pounds this year but wouldn't mind dropping another 20 over the next couple of years.

Gonna try to get off the cigs. Again. Off to a good start though, only 1 in the last 2 days. Besides that I need to start lifting weights again just to build a bit more strength.

I will spend tonite drawing up two dragon ball z tattoos I've got coming up and I will polish off Asura's Wrath. I started AW on saturday, beat it sunday and now I am QTE'ing my way through the DLC episodes.... short game to say the least.... despite that, I've already had my fill...

I am pretty stoked to work on the DBZ pieces.... Always wanted to see what I could do with a "Goku" on skin.... not a huge DBZ fan personally, though I once was in my youth, so this cool to me :)

So yea.... new years.... pretty much like most other days/nights for me... which is perfectly fine, as by my estimate "art+game=the ideal way klyde would like to allocate most of his time".....

No real resolutions... I have the standard bases covered...

A.I already run to a point that exceeds what most would probably consider a solid exercise routine (between 8-12 miles a day, and I have for years.... funny thing is I do it purely for the cognitive benefit)....

B.Due to the running and my diet (diet is void of all dairy, grain, refined sugar or fructose, corn, red meat and a host of other things due to gut issues) I certainly don't need to lose weight (full grown male here who comes in at a whopping 125 lbs.).....

But I do have a goal of sorts this year.... I want to get my tattoo work published in a gaming magazine. Getting it published in a tattoo mag or seen within tattoo communities is one thing.... I want to break the barrier and transcend damnit!!

Oh yea.... and I want to completely demolish my backlog... I've got it down to 4 games, Agarest 2 (halfway throuh) Wild Arms Alter Code F (halfway though) Hyperdimension MK2 (don't know where I'm at... its sort of hard to tell-LoL) and Growlanser WoT.... From what I have come to understand this is the path to gaming enlightenment.... Complete freedom to game in the moment without the shelf beckoning and demanding my attention-LOL

Gonna try to get off the cigs. Again. Off to a good start though, only 1 in the last 2 days. Besides that I need to start lifting weights again just to build a bit more strength.

I should try to consider that too.... I'm a 2-3 pack a day kind of guy... on top of that I constantly chew nicorette.... but I figure I'd best save some goals for 2014 :)
In this world is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcedental entity or law? is it like the hand of god hovering above? Perhaps Man has no control even over his own will…

I resolve to finally finish my goddamn PhD.  I remember thinking I would surely be done in 2011 at some point...

Resolution? Uh...I dunno. I do need to lose a pound or two, but resolutions never work for that.

Probably to be even better at my job, honestly. Cuz I can always do better!

A quite a few, so here's a list of a couple from it:

Tasks
  • Expand my listening to other genres of music (Popular, Rock, World, etc.)
  • Undergo remedial studies in 20th century music, especially electronic music
  • Consolidate my blogs to one neatly organized blog, and/or plain delete ones I don't plan on updating anymore.

Hope this year turns out just as good or better as the last one did for me...

Probably nothing.  I've put no thought into it and pretty much forgot about it until I saw this thread.  Not to say there's nothing I need to change, it's just I've just never done the whole resolutions thing.

The biggest thing that comes to mind is seeing games and anime I like through to the end more often.  However that has always been an ongoing effort.

Oh.  And starting up Dead Island co-op with the Yodes.
