    My personal goal for the new year is to get fit again. I plan on running (even though I hate it) and maybe lifting a little bit of weight. Being quicker and stronger will make me better at tennis.

    My New Year's goals, though there are a few, are really just one.
    I will think before I speak.
    I will see myself in someone else's shoes before I come to any conclusions about them.
    I will judge myself through their eyes before judging anyone else.
    I will not place myself above, or before anyone else.
    Today I will do better than I did yesterday. Tomorrow I will do better than I do today.

    My personal goal is to become better at 3D modelling. Seriously, some of my models would fit right in with n64 games...

    We never really had a lot of money growing up, my first handheld was a Gameboy Colour I shared with my siblings.

    My only new game system was a Dialga/Palkia DS Lite put on lay-a-way for Christmas so I could play Pokemon Diamond without hogging the family's DS Phat.

    Other than that my game systems were always bought second hand on the cheap, usually some kind of mechanical problem caused them to be inexpensive and I learned how to fix them to reap the benefits. Several PSOne systems for free. A PS2 a year after launch with "Disc Read Error" for $25, various GBA & DS systems with damaged hinges and recently an Original Xbox with no cables to check if it worked. Luckily I collect various console cables.

    Anyway I never paid full price for anything when it came to video games and it was usually a spur of the moment acquisition. I never actually planned and saved up to buy any of them. But now since my family is down to one vehicle which we are borrowing from a friend my New Year's Resolution is to save up for a used car to help out my family.

    I sure hope luck is on my side and I stumble into another fixer-upper of the automotive variety.

    My personal goal is to work hard and get into a good university course.

    I never actually manage to work hard though.

    I'd like to stop getting annoyed at people when they don't google their problems, and get better at photography.

    I've managed to accomplish this year's resolutions. I've doing great in college and I recently got a job. My goal next year? Keep doing both things, but now they are going to be at the same time, so the future might be a little tough. I'll try my best.

    To do something I've always failed at in life, to learn self-control, to turn the console off after three hours, and not six or even eight hour s of gaming. To make myself get off the computer, tablet, or console and actually do something productive with my life. Learn to get in bed early and wake up early instead of staying up all night and wasting my life away sleeping. To put self improvement such as exercise and education above my constant desire for novelty and entertainment. Improvements that will have a lasting, positive effect. To stop rubbing one out to a fake, airbrushed actress who only cares about the ad revenue you are bringing, and to instead go out and find someone that truely cares for me.

    I just want to start living instead of just existing.

    This year I was finally able to get into college due to a personal situation I just need to get a place in computer science, that is my goal and will be the cherry on the cake.

    I want to become fit (again).

    I want to not use electronic devices while people are talking to me and set an example amongst my peers. If I absolutely have to use one, I will explain what I am doing and this will only be acceptable if it is following up on a job offer or communicating with an employer.

    I want to make the advance from 3D texturing to 3D modelling and create my own models.

    I want to reach the alpha stage of creating a 2D character for a fighting game with sprites-I have never had the motivation to complete one character, start to finish.

    I want to become a better artist.

    I should remember that sometimes people make irreverent jokes not out of disrespect, but as a means of talking about something depressing, much like comedians do.

    Most importantly, I want to choose the correct words as to not create a confrontation with anyone.
