2012 New Year's Resolutions?

Every year, people make themselves some resolutions for the coming year. For me:

1. Drop another 10 pounds or so, get down to 150
2. Heal all injuries completely
3. Stop smoking cannabis, gradually
4. Make several thousand dollars
5. Get almost out of debt
6. Beat one ATP ranked player
7. Kick ass in school, nothing lower than a B
8. Come within one semester of graduation (Spring 2013)
9. Spread love everywhere I go

Now, what are your ambitions for 2012?

Re: 2012 New Year's Resolutions?

1. Make more money than I did in 2011
2. Have more sex than I did in 2011
3. Start studying Spanish
4. Travel to Peru
5. Control better my drinking habits

Would be cool to bump this thread in a year to see the results.

Re: 2012 New Year's Resolutions?

1. Take my studying seriously. (Not much help at the moment though as I have 2 massive exams in under 2 weeks though )
2. Improve my health.
3. Eat more, currently 2 stone underweight with a BMI of 15.

Re: 2012 New Year's Resolutions?

-Revise lectures day by day so I don't have to cram in a term's material in a week.
-Make sure my room is as tidy as can be before I leave it every morning.
-Read at least one chapter from a book a day. Any book.
-Cook at least two meals a week.

Re: 2012 New Year's Resolutions?

To keep uncomfortable eye contact with everyone I talk to. Need to start giving people my undivided attention.

So someone recently informed me that my sig was empty. Said I needed a life affirming motivational quote by a positive role model like Einstein or Oscar Wilde...

Great tip to stay fit and mobile: If you run up and down the stairs two steps at a time at least once daily, there will never come a time when you can't do it. Until of course one day you mistime a step, collapse and break all your bones... That would suck. But you had a good run.

Losing weight is definitely at the top of the list.

I've already broken mine if the poster confirms he will be in the Mr. MTF Contest. My resolution was not to be involved in any way in anymore MTF Contests not even voting
