Anyone else already fail their resolutions?

Yes! And I have a feeling I might break the new replacement one within a week! Woo no willpower!

I've still done none of mine, though Edith said she'd buy an EP, and apparently I'm playing tronno.

I am excersising at the gym regularly. However I don't think the snowboard thing is going to happen, and my friend who is supposed to teach me some boxing stuff's membership to the gym is expired, and he has yet to start a new one.

I added a resolution to help a friend get her driving license.  So far, I got her to finally get her learning permit, and I've taken her on the road twice.  I'm not dead, so it's not bad so far.

Other than that, my eating habits still suck, I have actually started looking at apartments, and uh.. yeah that's it for now.

- Not be late for work, and arrive early enough to park in the far away parking lot (thus saving $2 a day!)
- On that note, bring a lunch and thermos of coffee to work with me so I don't need to buy it every day.
- Open my mail the day it shows up in my mailbox... seriously, I've been known to leave bank statements unopened for years on end.
- Sell off about half of my action figure collection.
- No Facebook or LiveJournal after 12:30AM... this one will be tough to stick to.
- Actually ask girls out on dates... and try not to fall in love with girls who already have boyfriends.
- Update my comic on at least a weekly schedule.


Yep. All failed epically. Though I guess there's still time for #4 and the first half of #6....

Okay yeah I have just entirely given up on my verses thing. I am, however, in the process of writing an actual song, lyrics and all, all by myself, so we'll see how this turns out. Unfortunately, when I record it, if you listen real careful, it's just a blatant ripoff of "Star Guitar" by Shinichi Osawa put to the vocal melody of "Hearts of Oak" by Ted Leo.

Last year's "record an album" resolution (I hope not to make a habit of doing that) is about 1/3 of the way done. The song I just mentioned is going to be part of it, and I'm scouring iTunes with some friggin' steel wool to find stuff I can rip off without it being too noticeable.

Inspired by Lunchbox's 365 photograph things and my resolution to figure out my camera and learn how to get shots that are not so hell ass-blurry, I am doing a couple of random shots every day. Most are never going to be posted, but so far I think it might be helping a little! I am still only using the timer setting, though, and I do not know how to get across the room (where it should be in focus) in time for the camera to actually focus before the 10-second timer goes off, so most of the ones that have worked are closer shots and shots not of me.

i think i'm going to need to revise my resolutions a bit and add something about trying to find a job or volunteer position that actually has something even remotely to do with the sort of work i want to do after i graduate. nearly every masters program i want to apply for after school requires millions of years of relevant work experience and those jobs subsequently require millions of years of volunteer experience. i have nothing on my resume whatsoever except a couple of years of picking up boxes and putting them down somewhere else, hosting a shitty radio show once a week that doesn't pay me anything and pissing off other graduates by calling them and asking for money. i am graduating in just over a year and it is freaking me out. waaaaahhh.

Considering your resolutions were both incredibly low difficulty/standard, no.

Get Shane laid and continue being as awesome as I already am? Now THAT is hard work.

Joe's just mad 'cause his resolution to stop snorting cocaine from Kate Moss's asscrack didn't pan out like he'd hoped. Hey at least you're down to 1kg a day now!

I know this is just pure speculation, having neither snorted cocaine nor done so from anybody's asscrack (or had it snorted from my own, for that matter), but I am pretty sure you'd be able to tell the difference between somebody actually doing it and somebody faking it.

It would be absolutely amazing if somebody on here had experience on the subject.

There's someone who has snorted cocaine from Kate Moss' asscrack on here? Wow. Similarly, wow if someone has done so from some other random person's bottombits.

Hmm well I'm going to the gym 2-3 times a week so I'm pretty happy about that. I did break the whole not staying up late resolution... and the procrastinating one... as I pulled an all-nighter to finish my chem lab. I also drank coffee... but I had a good twenty-three days before I gave in, I consider it an accomplishment.

I have seen a trend in people revisiting their resolutions.  I have done the same and it is a bit depressing.

I wouldn't call these resolutions so much as just shit I really need/want to do.
-Take some fucking risks because I have been way too safe and practical in my decisions so far.  Transferring to art school or studying abroad are high on the list.
-Generally be more dedicated to art.
-Have more adventures.  These will probably involve more risks.
-Run a half marathon in late April without hurting myself.
-Keep in shape to run a full marathon sometime this fall, again without hurting myself.
-Avoid spiraling into alcoholism following my 21st birthday.  Mostly because it would be expensive.
-NO MOAR DRAMAZ.  I hate the dramaz. 


-Have had a couple of adventures.  Hope to have more when it is not motherfucking cold. 
-Actually taking a studio art class this semester.  This is a step in the right direction.
-The running's not going so well.  It's too cold and I'm too busy.  Have adjusted my goal to hit the campus gym 3 times a week after work, and start the running business again once I have daylight hours free.
-Not 21 yet.  Only drunk once a week or so thus far. 
-Drama still won't leave me alone.  Thinking about changing phone number.
