    Do we have a thread for this yet? Sorry if we do.

    My resolutions for 2011-

    1. Spend LESS money on toys. - (This one always ends up going the other way.)
    2. Graduate, then pass licensing exam.
    3. Eat more, exercise less. - (usually the other way around, haha)

    Things I am looking forward to

    -Transformers 3
    -Captain America
    -Thor
    (^ great summer of movies!)

    -MP Rodimus!

    -My graduation party and ceremony (come on MAY!)

    Resolutions

    - Exercise more and eat better.
    - Open up a retirement fund. I've already started saving, but I need a 'real' fund and not just my saving account.
    - Be more punctual responding to e-mails.
    - Stop wasting money on monthly comic books.
    - Pay more attention to the news and current events, both in the US and Canada. I used to do this a lot, but I've slipped in the last year or so.
    - Spend much less time on this site and TF forums, in general. I still enjoy the hobby, but I've had it dealing with a constantly negative fandom that, generally, seems to hate everything about TFs.
    - Turn the TV off. I've gotten bad about just leaving the TV on as background noise and getting sucked into watching a lot of crap that I shouldn't bother with. If I need background noise, I'll put on talk radio instead, which will help cover the 'pay more attention to the news' resolution.

    Looking forward to...

    - Getting my current immigration visa renewed.
    - Applying for, and hopefully getting, an H-1B visa.
    - Writing up and publishing a few more scientific papers.
    - Transformers 3, both the film and the toys.
    - Completing my set of G1 combiners. Just 7 more figures left!

    While they're not resolutions, my goals are:

    Finish my BS in Management Studies - 9 classes to go, not counting prerequisites
    Get my XG business up and running
    Get into a nice house with plenty of room for my collections.

    I'm already losing weight, so I don't need to throw that in there. (9 lbs this month! (Yay Phentermine!!))

    To achieve some real forward flight with my RC helicopters.
    actually, that's more of a goal than a resolution. I guess I don't have any..................yet.
    Complete my Masterpiece society, er collection.

    I've got a few goals and resolutions:

    -Reserve judgment on something that may suck until I see it in person, a.k.a. don't jump to conclusions on something I haven't seen yet, a.k.a. don't get ahead of myself, a.k.a. try to be less of a jerk (emphasis on try, lol).
    -Don't overreact.
    -Get a driver's license.
    -Try and spend less money on Transformers. Only spend if the toy is from Classics or Masterpiece.
    -Watch Dark of the Moon, THEN judge it.
    -Never procrastinate ever again (though that's a given).
    -Find a job.
    -Find a place to live on my own.

    Now bring on the New Year's Eve Spam thread! :lol

    Well, that's simple: I need to put more money in toys and less money at Hungry Jacks (Burger King to you Americans...).

    And just get more money in general. Duh. :p

    1) Keep up with my writing and submit a new script by the end of the year!
    2) Get into some sort of shape (I'm far too weak and it's starting to bother me!)
    3) Finally learn to ride a bike/drive a car
    4) Cheer up - I'm a miserable bastard and I hate it. Time to lighten up.
    5) Cut back on coffee... Nah, balls to that...
