I don't have the problem of most people here, needing to lose weight. Quite the opposite. But I'm looking to gain some solid muscle, which given my speedy metabolism, has been incredibly hard so far. It pisses me off. Still Imma work out as often as possible and see what I can do.

Oh and I'm going to try to make at least 1 remix a month, given the fact I'm really bored with original music shouldn't be hard to do.

-Get my life even more together
-Save up enough to get to MAG XII with enough spending money set aside to be comfortable ($20 didn't cut it)
-Not buy as many video games
-Submit a song to the judges (and get it YES'd?)

That's all I can think of right now.

I have made resolutions in the past and the vast majority went dumpster hopping without me.

The last one I was able to keep - for about five weeks - was getting a job, and that was at the end of last year.

This year, I only have one serious resolution: get a book published. It may not be out of my reach...
Nothing is impossible - merely inconvenient.

- Get on Jeopardy


If you do that, Jeopardy may just become the best quiz show ever. :)

I mainly have music goals for this year:

- Become good at producing.
- Get at least 1 mix posted on OCR.
- Start working on my personal VGM projects (remixes for some underremixed, imo, games).
- Manage to record/produce songs with my band.
- Learn more music theory (been working at it!).

Learn learn learn.

Programming. Karate. Guitar. Piano. Production.

These will certainly take much longer than a single year but I want to learn something significant in at least three of these.

Finish all the remix album tracks and other projects I have on my plate by no later than the middle of February
Get back into visual art (more pen drawing, get into digital art, and especially learn more about spriting)
Submit more than one track to OCR this year (though I guess that put me at 100% acceptance rate in 2012, heh)
Original releases (TONS planned)
Make it back to Indy this summer (DusK, you better hit up Union Jack with us this time :P )
Take on at LEAST 10 media composition projects over the course of the year (film, games, promos, etc.; 1 down, 9 to go)
Keep shaving more time off my Super Metroid speed run
Release something through SNESology
KEEP IMPROVING MY MUSIC!! :D

Also, finish building my desktop like, now (not really much *building* left, just have to install an HDD to go with my SSD and put an OS on there)

And you know what, I'm gonna get back into playing drum set because I fucking miss it

And damn it, let's keep going. I'm sort of expecting to do this regardless of the resolution, but even though I won't be on a university drumline anymore I'm going to keep all my drumline composition and teaching commissions because it's played a huge part of shaping me as a musician, and I don't want to lose touch with those contacts or that aspect of composition

I've got a small list:

Lets do dis!

I usually set goals based on life events rather than the start of the year, but this time coincidentally I have a few right about now that could be resolutions. 2012 was a pretty big year for me (finished my Master's program, moved to a new apartment, got married) so a lot of this is based on now having a bunch of free time that I didn't before.

Skills
  • Pick back up calligraphy (had to set this aside 4 years back, but I still have all my brushes and ink)
  • Study 50% of the material I have for the JLPT N1 (my long-term goal is to pass N1 by December 2014)
Projects/Entertainment
  • Translate the remaining Lunar manga (3 volumes) I have yet to translate
  • Translate 2 of the Lunar drama CDs
  • Start the Magical School Lunar Let's Play I've been planning for years
  • Clear 50% of my game backlog
Work
  • My work-related goals are important, but they'll sound dull if I list them here

NO STEVO I'M NOT TRANSLATING ANY MORE OF YOUR POR--
wait... n/m...
...sorry, habitual response.

I usually don't bring it up unless it pertains to the conversation. So, like, unless we got on the subject of import games or vacations I prolly wouldn't've mentioned it. KF

you translating that hentai the entire room was watching in realtime was one of the highlights of my entire life. I bet you could make a career out of that if you were so inclined. :-D
