    Commit to something, anything properly, be it my university work, a book, a game, a friendship, relationship, exercise routine, or any of the other things I regularly lose interest in at ~50% progress and give up on. Quitting is such a miserable habit to sustain, as any smoker or alcoholic will verify.

    +1 that is tough to do for the most part.



    I dont do new years resolutions but some things I would like to accomplish this year are:

    Get accepted into College (Wireless Engineering Tech) and actually go
    Buy all kinds of tools and electronics I want
    Build a new kick ass case
    Buy a car (motorcycle dont do it for the winter)
    Get better social skills
    Become more self confident (goes together with above)
    Not gain weight (I could stand to lose weight but I'm happy with myself so as long as I dont gain any)
    Fart way louder! :lol:

    this isn't a new years resolution because me and my dad have been wanting to do this for a few years and that is to clean our garage and workshop so we can actually use all of our tools. And it is finally happening! This summer we cleaned our garage out and threw out a ton of stuff and got hat pretty good. Now that my dad had today Jan1st and 2nd off from work we started cleaning out the workshop. Moved all the large tools out into the garage and now going through all the shelves and such to throw out the junk we dont need. Can't wait till its done!!!!!!

    1) Don't drink beer on nights out because I become an arse
    2) Go to the Gym twice a week
    3) Stop being so overbearing and let other people get a word in edgeways
