Hopefully next year I'll be in university, somewhere far away from the sleepy little town I currently live in. I've mostly applied to those that are far down south. I just need to do well in my exams to get there. So I suppose this leads my resolution to be: focus on studying and revision, don't get distracted by the pointless.

    I don't do resolutions... I always forget them so I just give up on them. c;
    Plus it's not like my family is going to reward me or anything, so yeah.

    And next year, well, I'm just looking forward to the new Hunger Games Movie. :D

        2012 should be a better year for me since this one was pretty crap in all honesty, lol.

        I don't usually do resolutions, but this year I've decided to try drinking and smoking less since I'm really not doing myself any good at all lol.

        And get into uni too. That'd be cool.

        I'm hoping to finish Grade 11 (with good marks, although that ain't looking too good atm) and get my 360 repaired/replaced. I kinda fulfilled the one I made for this year, but I'm not completely satisfied, but it was better than nothing.

          2) Post more on PokéCommunity
          3) get out and about more
          4) eat less sweets ( I don't eat much sweets anyway)

I always install software junk onto my computer that I never use and in the end, my computer is as slow as hell and it crashes on a daily basis. 2 days ago, I had 11 tabs open on Google Chrome with 10 other programs running at the same time. So, my computer crashed with the first appearance of the Blue Screen of Death. So, yeah, overload computer is a no no.

            Speaking about computers, another resolution would be to actually use the money I got to buy one lol, cause I have had it for half a year now and I'm just not spending it and I NEED A NEW ONE for Skyrim

              What I'm looking forward to the new year is quite simple really...

              My final year in high school baby! Once this is over and done with, I guess it's off to college...gotta get through Senior Trip, Prom, and Graduation first.

              And cannot wait for the London 2012 Olympics...love the 2008 Benjing event, so next year should be a blast.

              I guess one New Years Resolution I could make is to actually start saving my money more often...well I'm doing that now for my birthday, which is next week :D

                M<y solution for new year is to try to stay more focus on whatever I am doing. I am often losing tracks a lot

                  I've never been a fan of new year's resolutions. For the most part, the people that regularly engage in them have a habit of forgetting about them around the end of January. For about two weeks they're obsessed with getting fit or trying to 'accomplish' stuff with their lives, and then they realise that they have no desire to continue with their resolutions on a day-to-day business, so slowly stop doing them. That's not to say that resolutions aren't a good thing; they've just never really seemed to work with my peers, is all.

                  In melancholic news, it looks like I'll end up being alone for this New Year's for the first time ever. My housemates, who I thought would be back, have other plans, and I'm about 300 miles away from my family. I'll probably end up going on PC to celebrate the NYE; I don't know if I should be depressed by that or not...

                  I don't think I really have a New Years Resolution for 2012. It's probably because I really didn't think about it but if I come up with one then I guess my New Years Resolution would be to graduate from High school and to go into the college that I really want to go into.

                  I never do New Year's resolutions, but I guess I want to accomplish some things in the new year.
                  I want to pass my exam, so I'll have to work hard.
                  I also want to work out some more, like every week at least.
                  That's it for me, I think!

                    • Get a 4.0 GPA
                    • Be _________ (fill in the blank with something positive)

                    I make a point of not making new years resolutions, because I know they never work. If I want to make a change in my life I make it right then, rather than waiting for a chronological milestone.

                      My New year resolutions :cer_confused:? Neh, I rarely do them since I'm one of those people who don't like to change their routine much to something different. Even so, I might as well try :cer_shifty: :

                      That's pretty much it, besides the fact I'm not the only one who loves Cerulean smilies. :cer_blankstare:

                        My New Year's resolution for last year was to not have one this year... Uh, awkward.

                        I usually don't have any New Year's resolutions (as I never pull through with them); really gotta get off my behind and find some motivation! Gonna use all the posts here as said motivation and hopefully have a better year than 2011. It shouldn't be too hard for that to happen since I wasn't exactly fond of 2011 for reasons I don't really know. I had a good two semesters but there's just something I'm bitter about, lol.

                        • Find a job again?
                        • PC-related: Hit the grand milestone of ten thousand posts? Originally I put one thousand but that definitely won't take a whole 366 (2012 is leap year!) days p:
