Default New Year's resolutions

Well we have come to that time of year when we promise to our selves our loved ones and anyone else close to you at midnight, when you drunkenly and vocally pronouce your resolutions for the up coming year!

So Heresy people lets here what you intend to do over the next year, it doesn't have to be purely hobby related but i'm hoping some will

Ok and to get the ball rolling i will start us off

Gaming! Yes i will try and play more often as 3 games in 2011 does not look good when telling my GF i'm doing another army.

Scultping! Are the ever so elusive art of putting those extras on a model that the designers forgot, so yeah i will be trying to learn more about this too.

AN finally none hobby related, running! i have two runs for charity booked, one in March and one in May and intend to do more over the year. Its my way of giving back to those that help make the world a better place for us all to live in.

Well thats me done, so lets hear yours.........

Read as much as I can. I have about 20-odd books on my shelf unread from 2011, and yet I'm still buying/downloading/receiving books. I'm going to set my target of 200 books to read in 2012. Perhaps a bit Ambitious? Well, I managed 154 this year, so we'll see.

Do well in my AS Level exams in the Summer. (I'm lucky, I don't have any in Jan/Feb, but I've got quite a few in the Summer).

Paint up at least one squad of Space Marines, either in Salamanders colours or my own homebrew chapter. Also, put them on Heresy Online.

Get at least one submission for Black Library's annual submission window. I got one short story in last year that I haven't heard a response from back yet, and I don't think I will.

That's it for now.

I vow to clean out my hobby space. Get all that extra stuff on ebay. Paint everything I want to keep, sell the rest! I will be starting a progress thread to track throughout the year. 2012 is the end....of my hobby hoarding!

I also resolve to start my PX90 workout again and be the svelte God I was meant to be!

Strange, but not a Stranger.

I need to do better in my classes this semester.
I also need to start reading more books this year as I have quite a few on my list of books to read.
I'm also going to have to keep my current job longer than I kept my last one.

My youtube channel. Feel free to stop by and have a look if you're interested. I do Airsoft, some warhammer related videos, and gaming videos.

R.I.P. Uncle Lee. You will be greatly missed by us all. We will see each other again some day.
