Thread: New Year Resolutions

    Default New Year Resolutions

    Well, it's almost time again, who's making them? What are you making? Who's saying screw it and not bothering?

    Mine (which will probably last all of an hour) is to give up the smokes.

    I'm going to try to paint at least a mini a month. I've got a bunch of dollhouse minis of Disney characters that I need to get done for my wife, and my drawer of lead is getting full anyway.

    I'm also going to try and paint a mini a month. I've joined a local painting group that has a monthly competition and I think that will help as I work better (read at all) with deadlines looming!

    Marc, I gave up smoking a little while ago and what I find helps is to set small achievable targets and reward yourself for reaching them. I started by saying if I can not smoke for 2 weeks I will spend £5 on myself then if I make it to 4 weeks another reward. Then 8 weeks and so on.
    I think i'm coming up to the 8 weeks now. Just set the rewards appropriately and you're golden.

    I hereby resolve to play my stereo a bit louder, shoot my pistol off the back porch a box or two of ammo more, and chase the wife around the bedroom more. (the bit about the pistol? I live on a swamp, nearest neighbor is a mile and a half downstream, no worries...)

    Getting to the Pyrenees would be great, but I'll have to settle for going to the Ozarks instead. And quitting the smokes is a damn good thing! Do it! It's hard, but worth the work.

    Then there's that shelf full of primed and ready minis. We are starting our game sessions back mid-January, I ought to have some ready for it. Guess I've got to get busy. But there's so much on CMON!

    lol. Y'all be safe over the New Year! See ya on the other side!

    I don't bother making them anymore. I always forgot about them after the first week and I'm to lazy to live by that.
    I just hope that 2010 is going to be a nice year. 2009 was amazingly depressing, especially the beginning and ending.

    Quit smoking, go to bed earlier, get in shape, eat better, blah blah blah....
    The only one I'm likely to hold is complete more that 4 minis this year
    And even then ...

    You should kill 3 birds with one stone by blasting your stereo while chasing your wife around the bedroom shooting your pistol?

    For me I haven't set any resolutions and won't be since I never keep them. Well maybe I'll try and get a model that's a 8+ here on CMON.

    None for me - I made a resolution a few years ago not to make any more resolutions and it was the easiest one ever to stick to

    Good luck! Personally, I think if you make it to march without buying anything you're some kind of super hero. Not like Superman or Thor or anything, maybe closer to Ant-Man, but still a super hero. Keep us posted on this please.
