I think I'm really going to try to do that, maybe. Sell my iBook and buy something new. Or maybe I'll keep my iBook for now and start with something else so I always have a good Mac.

I've already started mine a few weeks ago. I'm going to stop swearing. That's right, no *F* word(!) So far I've had a few relapses but I'm working on it!!

Corvette - you know what's funny, your New Year's resolution is usually my birthday wish every single year since I was old enough to be interested in girls. I just had my birthday a few days ago and for once in my life, I made a different wish!

Hmm. I think I'll try that out as well.

Of course, reading a forum where people swear left and right doesn't help any.

A few:

1. Lose 20 pounds (maybe more...I don't know what 20 pounds looks like until I'm there).

2. Get a new iMac (or an iBook, if this new iMac doesn't look the way I want it to or have the features I'm expecting)

3. Finish my guitar

4. Pursue more freelance work (logo design and illustration)

5. Go under the ink and get my design finally tattooed onto me (yikes...I don't see this one happening...yet again!)

6. Encounter and trap a live rattlesnake and possibly touch it (with his head secured, of course). I have to get over this fear somehow.

7. Try to be a better, nicer person to those I care about than I was last year, even though I was a pretty swell guy all-in-all in 2001. But I want to be even "sweller"!

For some reason I think this is one resolution that won't be kept. Can EmAn get to 10,000 posts by this time next year? Go, EmAn, go!

"Way up in Nanuet,
Up in New York State,
Way back up in the city

There stood an ibook

where it was used
by a guy named EmAn, oh so good

He never ever learned
to read or write so well,
but he could post on AI
just like he's was ringin' a bell

GO GO!
Go EmAn, GO, GO!

Aw shucks, I'm blushing!

Actually, I know it's more of a "I wish I could swap Macs at the drop of a hat without losing a dime" thing than a "damn that murbot is a great looking and funny guy, I wish I were him" thing....

[quote]PS: Murbot should have a shrine so that we could all worship his AAA (Apple Acquisition Aptitude)<hr></blockquote>

LOL! That's hilarious man...

It is an addiction guys, and I need help....

My New Year's Resolutions:

1. Get good use of my YMCA membership and get myself back into great shape this year. (I am not going to bother with numbers)

2. Get off my ass and get my website off the ground.

3. Keep a Mac for more than 2 months. (hey, I have to start small and work up...)

4. Work hard on my golf game and finally get down to a single digit handicap. (sooo close last year)

5. Try to come up with some better resolutions before Jan 1.
post #20 of 23
1. drop the freshman 15 that i gained over the course of the last 3 months

2. (related to 1) gym every day or so

3. (no doubt related to the success of 1 and 2) get me a girlfriend
post #21 of 23
1. Bench my body weight
2. Gain as little as weight as possible (in order for #1 to work)
3. Stop biting my lips
4. Improve sleeping habits (I'm on a fast downward spiral...getting 6 hours of sleep in middle school is not good...my sister never sleeps as a senior and I'm freaked out enough to try real hard to get to bed at 10PM)
5. Learn to do something useful with my Mac other than games (unlikely)

[quote]1. Bench my body weight<hr></blockquote>

The fastest way to get to this is starvation.

While I was playing football in high school I got to where I could bench a bit over my weight (I got 2 reps on 260 while at 225ish). I need to get after that, but numbers aren't my deal, my deal is clothes fitting and physical endurance.

If I'm trim enough to fit into my football days clothes and I can participate in a reasonable amount of physical activity without keeling over I consider myself as in "good enough" shape.

[edit]

My only real resolution is to make sure the girl that's tolerated my crap for the last 3 years is happy enough to keep tolerating it.

My senior year in college I once benched 50 lbs more than my weight...of course I only weighed about 165 at the time. And benching said 215 lbs, while a nice boost to the ego...caused me some serious back pain in the end (even though I did it properly). Non-muscular types shouldn't be benchpressing more than their weight on a regular basis, as your spine will eventually make you pay.

As for my resolutions, I tried to make them practical since I'm not prone to making them in the first place:


1. Find some steady work as a technical writer.

1a. Do 100 crunches a week to strengthen my stomach muscles. in an effort to better support the afore-mentioned spinal unit.

2. Finish reading a half dozen books I got part way through, but never finished.

3. Stop being distracted so easily (see point 2).

4. Play Hockey every month of the year.
