I'm not gonna set vague goals like "I'm going to get in shape", because those are bound to fail. The real danger in these types of promises is that the person making them can wind up thinking they've actually accomplished what they've set out to do, regardless of what changes they made or didn't make. That's secretly the reason your brain made you keep the goal vague, because subconsciously it knew to leave some wiggle room.

Instead, I'm going for something more specific: finish writing my game and fully learn C++. These won't take the whole year, and aren't "massive" resolutions, but surely they have more change of success :)

Kind of early for this topic, but why not.

I'm going to make a resolution to make finding a job a priority, and I'm also going to put in some more physical exercise when I can.  Of course, I was planning on doing both of these things anyway even if it wasn't new years.

Very early time for this to crop up, surely this would be the sort of subject for when the December chat comes out, no? Nevertheless, you will be able to tell what my New Year's Revolution is if/when it is achieved. :D

Maybe peoples' resolutions will last for TWO weeks next year!

I have a couple resolutions:
To miss less school
To actually do my projects and homework
To think more before I say/do/post things (I often get in trouble for doing/saying bad things)

My resolution is to attend more in school and to try harder, it's really stressful reading through college expectations and reading how I've actually been doing not as good as I should be when I've always thought I was doing okay. And another resolution is to successfully create and finish a project of any kind.

To not make threads about loneliness that get instantly locked.
For my new years resolution, I'm going to get a girlfriend.
To stop annoying people on the minecraft forums.
My new years resolution is to stop making false new years resolutions and get to the point.
On new years' eve, I'm going to figure things the *fork* out and actually make a new years' resolution.
When the final day of the year comes, my resolution will be to stop being lazy and make an actual reply to this thread.
Still, uh, figuring it out...

I guess one of my New Years resolutions would be to stop being such a betafag and actually get into a lasting relationship with someone.
Learning how to code would also be pretty groovy.
