More habits I want to develop than goals I want to meet;

-Sleeping properly. Job schedule means that some days I get home at 2am and some days my alarm goes off at 6.30am, so while most nights I have a good 7-8 hour chunk at least where I can be sleeping it's never the same 7-8 hour chunk. The lack of consistency often means I don't get nearly as much sleep as I need even though I have the time for it. Recently I've been going through my rotas as they're written and working out when I'm sleeping (and planning it so that I have to shift when I'm sleeping as little as possible from day to day). If helps but is a faff. I'm trying to set up my phone to automate it based on work shifts I put in my calendar.

-Eating healthily. Part of the issue here is my hours and the sleep thing - I'm often too tired to bother cooking, and often hungry when I get home after midnight which (because I'm too tired from worm to cook properly) leads to me ordering Domino's or whatever. One bit of the solution here is the realisation I don't really enjoy drinking any more (a lot of my social life revolves around going to pubs because that's what happens when you work in hospitality) while I do enjoy eating out, so I can transition my unhealthy drinking in pubs time to healthy dinner out with friends time which I'll enjoy a lot more and shouldn't cost me more. Another part is batch cooking something once a week that's healthy and that I can reheat easily when I come in hungry and tired from work. Between then that'll address two of the three big issues with the things I put in my body. The other one that needs addressing is the amount of sugary drinks I have (we're free to help ourselves at work). Not so sure how to deal with that one.

-Excercise regularly. This is mostly about finding some kind of excercise I enjoy doing. That used to be climbing but I've fallen out of love with it in the last 18 months and got in a lot worse shape because of it. I think the approach here is committing to picking some form of exercise to do once a week for four to five weeks. If I don't like it at the end of that, no harm, - I'll try a different form of exercise for the following month. If I do like it and want to do it more, I can. Even if at the end of the year I've not found anything I enjoy I'll still have done something active once a week most weeks for the year without ever having the burden of committing to any one thing for an extended period. If I do find something I like, great!

-Stop spending money on things I end up not wanting or needing. Partly this is things like the above realisation that I don't much enjoy drinking I just do it because my friends want to go for drinks and I want to socialise (and it's fucking expensive!). Another thing I might try is putting a delay on buying anything I don't desperately need right now and seeing if I still want it a week later.

These are really generic ones but I've had a rough year and I need them somewhat sorted to feel up to doing bigger things.

-Make time for my current friends
-Use my (little) free time more wisely
-Relationships I guess???

And now ironically one of my resolutions is to give myself more meaningful Internet time lol.
Well I did pretty well actually but it was more due to a complete change of life circumstances so!

-Make a plan to get to Japan - Done and done! Hopefully going back soon.
-Find a job that I find fulfilling or that will lead to a fulfilling job - Grad school counts!
-Translate more - Yeah that didn't happen lol.
-Make some actual friends nearby - Still in process.
-Make time for my current friends - I guess I did this?
-Use my (little) free time more wisely - Now I have a lot of free time that I am using poorly lol
-Relationships I guess??? - I mean, I'm now in a weird place for this with being in Boston for potentially only 2 years so Ż\_(ツ)_/Ż

As for this year...

-Continue to improve overall health/fitness
-Have something resembling a social life
-Write something publishable/that could get me into a PhD program
-At least consider the idea of a casual relationship
-Find a way to get back to Japan

I mean all things considered my life is going pretty well, especially compared to last year (my job made me miserable) so I don't have a lot of resolutions that are that interesting lol.

Hmm.. well, might as well take a crack at some of these this year.

-Get a job.
-Draw more (Drew four pictures this year, so this one should be easy enough).
-Keep my grades up (A's and B's *crosses fingers*).
-Keep my anxiety under control.
-Prepare for college and apply to some.
-Get a 33 or higher on my ACT. (32 RIP)
-Get into a school out east. (Applied to One but no decision yet)
-Maintain my weight if not decrease it. (I think I put on like 2 pounds so I'm gonna give myself partial credit)
-Hit TL7 (lmao with new ASB this is getting pushed way back)
-Win a Gym Match

We'll see how this goes, I suppose.
Not bad, I guess. For this year:

-Go to college
-Find a new job near said college
-Do reasonably well academically in college
-Do some volunteering for a 2018 midterm candidate I like
-Help get New!ASB up and running
-Maintain weight

Smaller list this time, but I'm feeling good about everything going into 2018 so I feel like I don't need as many.

Haven't done this in a few years so going back would just be weird. So, for 2018:

-Don't fuck up grades this semester, get into/stay in student orgs for once
-Make some irl friends in college
-work towards consistently presenting female
-in that vein, come out to trusted extended family
-Also in that vein, try to get started on hormone therapy
-Play ALL the DnD
-Be active in FB and get at least one Pokemon via a zone
-Beat Breath Of The Wild
-Lost 4 pounds last time I went to the doctor-keep that up, but hopefully with less height gain on the side

- Go to London and meet Kane!!!! (very important, friends for 10 years this year)
- Be more social. Go on more girl dates with the gal pals
- Get over my ex/Go on dates but don't go steady until you feel it's right
- Stay consistent! I want to start keeping a schedule and sticking to it
- Go to more college parties
- Lose weight (Like a solid 10-15 pounds)
- Debate if that breast reduction is worth it (worth missing a month of work/being mostly bed ridden)
- Stop going to bed at 6am and sleeping till 2pm

Well might as well give this one a go.
-My doctor told me that I have to get below 200 pounds, I'm apparently on track for that so far just from dietary changes alone, so after two weeks yay me?
-Not fail a single class. This is really my most important one.
-See the campaign I'm volunteering on through to victory.
