-Get a job - Noper

-Don't be slack with VCE - Tried my best not to be, ended up with decent results

-Get a little bit of a social life - Another good joke, this did not change whatsoever
I'd say 'not bad' but the more important things weren't really met.

Now that I have a forced gap-year, my resolutions could include

- Get. A. Job. Already.
- Keep a tenpin bowling average of 160 or higher
- TL5, maybe?
- Do decently at the VGC Melbourne IC
- Look for a gril, which of course involves being less bashful
- Get even the smallest bit of a social life

I'm going to do the exact same thing I did this year, but also complain about Trump.

As for this year, gonna try and make things more specific so I can stick to them.

-Work out more and put on more muscle (Aiming for 170 lbs) This absolutely did not happen, I've been very stagnant in terms of my weight and I'm blaming my metabolism. I'm gonna have to put off any sort of bulking up related goals until it slows down.
-Write at least 2 songs While I haven't made any finished products, I have actually written 2-3 songs that I'm hoping to record into actual tracks soon!
-Enjoy the rest of my senior year and keep in touch with my high school friends after I graduate Things got a hell of a lot better as we neared graduation, so I'm gonna call this a win. I've also kept in contact with several of my high school friends and hope to see a few over break.
-Start college off right (Get involved and be social) HELL YEAH COLLEGE seriously I'm having a blast because a cappella is amazing and I have a social life
-Practice driving enough for my parents to let me drive on my own Mission accomplished! Was able to drive back and forth to work by myself all summer
-Maybe get a boyfriend/girlfriend Didn't expect this to happen anyway haha, but hey at least I'm sure of what I'm looking for now.
And how about this years'?

-Record 3-4 songs into finished tracks
-Continue to be social in college and join another student organization
-Spend a bit more time practicing piano (which is kinda hard at school without a piano readily available)
-Get a job on campus OR pick up more hours this summer so I don't run out of money lol

And finally, the big challenge:
-Come out to either my family or my friends

Happy New Year y'all, let's make 2017 a good one.

I looked through this thread to see that back in 2013 and then in 2014 my resolution was to pass my driving test, which I finally achieved in 2016! Hooray xd;

Good luck in 2017 everyone! : D

My unofficial resolution of "actually give a shit about basically anything" didn't go over so well for 2016. So I guess I'll make it an actual resolution written down here for 2017.

I look forward to reporting that I've failed miserably a year from now.

Lol I failed miserably on most fronts, but I have become much better at meeting people and making friends! Thing is, even though I talk to a lot of people in school now, I don't really go out much aside from when I have to. So...

1) Go out more and spend more time with friends
2) Actually try and lose some wait before college in the fall

-Translate more - Yeah no lol.
-Make some actual friends nearby - Ummmm yeah haven't done that.
-Make time for my current friends - Sure!
-Use my (little) free time more wisely - Sure!
-Relationships I guess??? - Nope!

And now ironically one of my resolutions is to give myself more meaningful Internet time lol.
Surprisingly somewhat successful.

-Exercise more (maybe actually take that Tai Chi class I've been thinking about)
-Quit my job/change jobs/get into grad school
-Actually follow through with going to Japan
-Relationship or something close to it I suppose
-Meet more people?

My fitness level has been relatively the same, which isn't bad at all, but I could always improve upon what I already worked for.

For 2016:
- Improve my GPA even more
- Get more tattoos
- Get a car
- Improve physical health/get more fit
- Improve mental health
- Get a fucking girlfriend
- Swing around with women like a monkey at a jungle gym
Almost forgot to do this! Managed a 3.9 GPA this past semester. Didn't get any new tattoos in 2016 but I have an appointment to get the first quarter of my eventual sleeve done later this month. Still don't have a car. Had a cyst in my leg removed last summer and so I was finally able to push myself harder at the gym again and I've made some noticeable improvements in that regard. My mental health has been a roller coaster in the past year but with the help of a therapist and my own knowledge of psychology I've started to see improvements in that in recent months. I've been in a relationship for over a month now and that's been pretty great. Very solid year for me.

For 2017:
- Improve GPA/prepare for grad school
- Get more tattoos
- Get a car
- Get more physically fit
- Improve mental health
- Save as much money as possible

Hmm, I didn't fully accomplish any of those, though I did make progress. I had a good year regardless. Definitely the toughest academic-wise, though that's surely going to get worse. I'm the busiest I've ever been but I'm managing. 2016 had a lot of great things happen; making and building friendships, meeting the most amazing guy, becoming quidditch captain, traveling (UPN Con was a highlight), honestly too much stuff to list. I consider myself lucky and blessed.

I'll try to be more realistic for 2017 I guess:
1. Learn to french braid my own hair. No excuses this time.
2. Do parkour training at least once a week. (This is probably a stretch, but I also really want to do it, so.)
3. Recognize when I'm being distracted and use that time more wisely.
