Happy New Year

Postby Abacus » 2016-12-31 01:59pm

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope everyone has a better year in 2017 than they did in 2016. To make this more than just a general HNY thread, I'll add the caveat that if you post, give the following info:

(1) What is one NY resolution you failed in the past?

(2) What is one NY resolution you succeeded at in the past?

(3) What is your latest resolution?


(1) Stop eating junk food.
(2) Finish writing one entire story before moving onto another.
(3) Read three hundred new books in 2017.

Bye bye 2016! Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out!

Anyway, Happy New Year everyone!.

For resolutions:

1. Probably lots, but I'll guess finding a job is one I failed in the past.

2. I don't remember that many of my old resolutions, actually, so I'm blanking on this one.

3. I've got a number of them, but for now I'll say "Be more politically active."
"Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid. As a nation, we began by declaring that "all men are created equal." We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except negroes" When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics." When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretence of loving liberty -- to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocracy." - Lincoln.

Merry New Year people, Merry New Year.

As for resolutions
1) Stay out of trouble in school. Yeah, guess how long that one lasted?
2) Quit making NY resolutions, because they're BS and I'm going to break them anyway

3) Don't have one. I always have goals that I'm working towards, a new day, week, or year is just another step along the way.

Happy new year everyone.

A decision must be made in the life of every nation at the very moment when the grasp of the enemy is at its throat. Then, it seems that the only way to survive is to use the means of the enemy, to rest survival upon what is expedient, to look the other way. Well, the answer to that is 'survival as what'? A country isn't a rock. It's not an extension of one's self. It's what it stands for. It's what it stands for when standing for something is the most difficult! - Chief Judge Haywood

2016 sucked on a broad basis from personal to glacier mitigation. All 2017 metrics point to increasing standards of victory.

We Russians don't do resolutions, we do wishes.

Past year was brilliant and my plans have come closer to fruition.

Hope everyone on the board has a great 2017.

Likewise, to all. I have failed to be killed yet for another year, so it has started off right.

Quit drinking.

Bought a used SUV, packed everything up, and moved to Denver for 2000. Best thing I ever did for myself. Made the decision 9 months before that, but my lease wasn't up yet.

Abacus wrote:(3) What is your latest resolution?

Stop drinking again, and live to be 40.

People make New Year's resolutions? Huh.

But I'm going to say this here. My family, the four of us, spent New Year's sitting on a park bench, overlooking Sydney Harbour, in a little clearing in some bushes, eating strawberries, and watching the 9pm fireworks*
