Resolutions for the year 2013.

For most of my life, I haven`t made New years resolutions, because it hasn`t been an official custom of my family...well, never. Last year, I decided to make a few. I did. Let`s see how I fared with them.

My resolutions for the year 2012 were:

-Not worry about the worlds end to happen this year, because it wont happen.

Succeeded with flying colors.

Of course, it was the end of the world for a alot of persons. Not sure if I know none of them. Probably not.

-Buy rest of Jonathan Hickmans run as a writer on Fantastic four.

I don`t live in America. I buy the trades online. Some of them haven`t been published yet, and I`m also waiting for the prices to go down a bit more.

So, no, I haven`t.

-Draw the comics I`m supposed to draw.

Succeeded.

-Write the stories I`m supposed to write.

I`m not much of a writer, and my nothing-but-words-stories are mostly done out of sheer inspiration. I just type something on to the page. So, yeah, I probably have succeeded at this.

-Buy as many volumes of Jack Kirbys fourth world as I can.

I`ve bought one this year for sure (vol. 2), I`ve bought one (vol. 1) either the year 2011 or 2012 (I checked, I bought both in 2012), I got one as a Christmas present (vol. 3) and I could`ve had a chance to buy the last one...But there are factors. But anyways, I succeeded. I`ve bought two of them this year. That`s pretty good.

-Buy the Seven soldiers of victory-stories written by Grant Morrison.

Did. The second half of it is the best part of it. Here`s a rev of part 1. Part 2 can be found on the page of the next ish. If you`re interested.

-Become more independent.

I moved away from home. Not permanently, though. Yet.

-Be as good a person as possible (I will fail at this).

I was wrong. I have been as good a person as it is possible, for me to be. Which isn`t much.

-Spend less time on the internet.

Guess...

SO, this is why you should make alot of resolutions. You`re bound to succeed at fulfilling at least one.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My resolutions for this year:

-Spend more than 1000 euros to comics (my country gives me money, I don`t deserve).

-Move to another city, where I will learn how to make comics. Well, more skillfully, at least.

-Go on a few dates. I have to start some day, right?

-Earn 20,000 wiki points.

-Read all The Hithchikers Guide-books by Douglas adams.

-Destroy Earth with a hydrogen bomb size of the moon.

-Buy the comics that I was supposed to buy in the year 2012.

-Shoot a bunch of expensive (sigh) New years rockets sky high.

-Send letters (not those singular squibles which make up words when put together, but pieces of paper that have them) to three comic makers I admire.

Well, those are my resolutions. What are yours? Do you have any? Is anyone gonna answer these questions? Is anyone gonna comment? I`d like if some would.

Also, have a splendid New year, which will be full of disappointments, granted wishes, happy moments, sad stuff, comics, innocence, evil and erotics!

My only resolution so far is to get into the expanded universes of franchises other than Star Wars such as Halo and Alien/Predator.

The Hitchhikers Guide trilogy (of 5 parts) is awesome, read them as soon as possible :)

@guttridgeb:

Good for you!

I know. I just have too much stuff to do, besides reading it. But yeah, I`m gonna try.

This isn't directed at anyone, but I don't understand the point of New Years resolutions. Why do people wait till now to bring about change in their life? I don't need a New Year to do something differently in my life.

@Xanni15:

I understand your point. For me, though, new years resolutions are...nifty. I like nifty things.

Posted by Xanni15

@kfhrfdu_89_76k:

I like the word nifty.

Posted by kfhrfdu_89_76k

@Xanni15:

Fantastic! Me too!

Posted by Xanni15

@kfhrfdu_89_76k:

Just to play along, my resolution is to use the word "nifty" more in 2013.

Posted by kfhrfdu_89_76k

@Xanni15:

Of course.

Cuddle more.

What's wrong with the old one ;-P

@LordMaverick:

Bravo, sir! Also, if you`ll do all, or at least half of that within a year, I`ll give you a sturdy handshake!

I`m serious, I WILL track you down, no matter where you are, visit you in your home, and shake your hand.

Creepy? Why d`you think so?

@MonsterStomp:

Remember that after some time, none of that will be new anymore.

Get good grades, start eating healthy, be nice around the people I appreciate.

Start my no juice diet. No eating after 7:00 diet. And go to the gym like a southern Baptist goes to church.

@Chaos Prime:

Wow. Those are some resolutions.

@Nefarious:

Work harder on what? Your job? If so, what job d`you have?

Well, I hope that you`ll do well on that one.

I think resolutions are a great idea --- anything that makes you sit back and take stock of your life is always good. Goal-setting (even if you don't succeed) puts things in perspective and that kind of clarity is already cleansing and fortifying.

I myself don't make resolutions but not because I can't stick to them. I attempt to do the above every so often and it's usually motivated by being unhappy.

Good luck to everyone on their resolutions. :)

I resolve to strive for new heights, keep doing what I've been doing, carpe diem, and a few other things...

Ahah. Well, good luck.

I have some more resolutions. 1. Wake up early everyday. 2. Get plenty of sleep. 3. Stay focused all the time.

Posted by kfhrfdu_89_76k

@Nefarious:

1 and 2 are achievable. 3 is extremely difficult, and should only be practiced when most crucial.

@kfhrfdu_89_76k: Indeed. My personal life tends to get in the way.
