    - Spend much less time on the internet in general
    - Spend more time reading the scientific literature for my field. I've let this slide a lot over the past year and need to get more aggressive about it
    - Cut back my discretionary spending even further and continue aggressively saving money for my retirement and a down-payment on a house
    - Plan out the future stages of my career a little better. I still have a couple of years left in my postdoc position, but I'd like to be prepared for the next transition
    - Complete the Power 90 exercise program (currently 30 days in) and move on to P90X
    - Connected to the above, get back on my diet after slipping over the holidays and start getting a bit more sleep
    - Try wearing contact lenses again. Didn't go so well on my first run-through last year, but I'm getting sick of glasses and want to give it another shot

    1. Sleep at least 7hrs every night.
    2. Lower my cholesterol.
    3. Give myself a well overdue family vacation! It's been a few years.

    I don't know. The problem is, I can't think of resolutions that I can really aim for. As, they are prevented by others year after year.

    #1: Make a new year's resolution for once. --Automatically accomplished!

    #2: Show up here again. --Also accomplished!!


    So... basically I'm good to go before the new year even begins. Now I can goof off for an entire year!

    New Years resolutions are for suckers, a joke promise waiting to be broken, never kept.

    If you want to change something in your life, don't wait for the new year to do it. Do it NOW.

    Can't say I have any. If I did, it'd only be a matter of time before I break them.
