OT: New Years Resolutions?
I'm curious to see if anyone has started thinking about their New Years resolutions yet? Do you start immediately on the first/or stroke of midnight, or are you not doing them at all? Some years I have grand plans (lose weight, watch less TV etc). Other years, I say 'what's the point? My expectations are too high anyway'. This year I have decided on a few, if anyone is interested, here they are:

1. Quit snacking, not snacks altogether, but just the *bad* stuff, M&Ms, chips, other candies.
2. Learn German - well, relearn and become more fluent.
3. Actually get the guts up to buy enough of one yarn and *actually* knit a sweater.
4. Do more different things in the city, I'm in a rut and need to stop going to the same places.
5. Change my job to something that may be more of a challenge, but less stressful

I think that's enough, and attainable. What's yours?

I'm gonna try and cut back on the Coca Cola(I drink at least two cans a day and it's bad for meeee!), which I tried last year and only lasted a week...
I'm also making a resolution to get back on track to help my anxiety and go back to school.

I don't tend to try for any sort of breaking bad habits/making good habits resolutions. I know I'm not invested in them enough to actually keep them.

In the past few years, I've made resolutions of a few simple things that I'd like to improve about myself/my personality. Last year, I resolved to be less afraid of people. This year, I resolved to be less annoying. I'm not entirely sure what I'll do for next year, or if I'll try to do anything at all. I'll probably decide on New Years Eve or something.

The one thing I've thought about is to dig up a bunch of my UFOs, and finish them. Every month another UFO will be adopted, and I have to finish it that month. I'm trying to decide between 3 different projects for January... A shawl thats nearly done, a popcorn MAM afghan {haven't done a stitch on it in over 4 years!}, and my Homespun sweatercoat.
