    In other words, I have none.
    I can have them for a week or two, but then I'm like 'Nevermind'.

    My New Years resolution? Get off this Camel! No seriously, I used to travel a few times a year, but school has limited my travels to being virtually non-existent. I did take a trip to Cairo, Egypt towards the end of the year. In 2013, I plan to finish my studies and explore the rest of this beautiful planet. 1st stop? Barcelona!!

    My New Year's Resolution is to meet my girlfriend for the first time. You see last year we met on here actually. It was about Christmas time, and I was posting in the Steam Christmas trading thread. I had the game Limbo, and was messaged on Steam about it. Something about her just clicked, and I ended up giving her Limbo as a gift. We started talking for a while, played some Beat Hazard, Terraria, etc. It was just a friendship at first, and then one night. We were both outside on the phone, and she helped me find some constellations and I knew it was to be. We're both currently saving up money to visit each other during the Summer. I happen to be in Florida, and she in Texas. Below is an image she made for us, and is part of my avatar. And I posted this post now not just because I could use some parts for a few things, I've been meaning to tell this story. This story is particular is why I am so compelled to be here. Without the Temp we wouldn't have met. Without the Temp I wouldn't have met the girl of my dream. True story.

    EDIT: Today's our one year anniversary. 1/21/13

    My 2013 New Years resolution is to be better than I was the last.
    In a sense, the gym badges symbolizes going through toughness and greatness.
    Achieving to be the best and striving towards the future to become important towards family, friends and people.

    (I apologize on that if it sounded like a pun/cliche, didn't mean on it lol)

    My real life badges :) kicking it OL' SCHOOL!
    Kanto on the top and Johto on the bottom. And yes this is MY photo and recent, thus why I watermarked it.

    My new years resolution is to cosplay as Ventus (From Kingdom Hearts) at Melbourne Supanova (Pop Culture Expo).
    I've already began crafting the Keyblade (weapon).
    My picture will be the the final version of the keyblade that has been a work in progress for the last week.

    While I must admit that looks pretty cool, I thought you could only use a single, non-paneled image?

    My new Years resolution is to drink more milk.

    I was working in an emergency room, guy comes in all shot up.
    The X-ray shows two bullets and the arrow is pointing
    To shrapnel.

    The clavicle is shattered (top bone) No biggie since the clavicle is prone
    To breaking.

    What's awesome is that a bullet was stopped by a rib. You can see it
    Partially deformed. Drinking milk saved this guys life.

    Milk, dark greens, and various others, yes. The human body, although essentially a viscus sack, 'flesh failure', can be pretty damned TOUGH, when needed.

    Great shot.
