    I made a resolution long ago to make changes when I notice that they need to be made, rather than waiting around for one day out of the year to make them.

    I intend to find additional ways to Go Galt and focus my income on paying off the rest of my mortgage as fast as possible.

    I'm going to trust more that there is a Santa Claus, an Easter Bunny and Owe Bama was really born in Hawaii. It will be hard because all 3 are myths.

    I don't drink much, I'm in pretty good shape for my age and I've already paid off most of my debt in previous "New Years Resolutions" so I guess I need to:

    1. Organize the House better. My wife and I live in a house that was built in 1927 so it doesn't really have any closets or built in shelves and as a result our house is pretty cluttered. So what I need to do is go through all my clutter, in the the house AND the garage, throw out what I don't need or use and organize the rest. Then either build shelves or buy furniture.

    2. Study Japanese AGAIN! I used to be pretty fluent in Japanese but those skills have greatly diminished in the last 10 years or so. We've had guests visiting from Japan recently and I was sitting there without much to say because I'd forgotten most of it! You know how it is with a language, you have to "Use or Lose it" and I've lost most of it.

    3. Master the Guitar. I've played acoustic guitar since H.S. and I recently bought an Electric (Epiphone Les Paul) so I'd really like to learn the fretboard and then learn to solo.

    I gave up making New Year resolutions years ago...it's like trying to keep a promise (which I don't make any promises or guarantees to anyone for any thing any more either) I am not very good at sticking with them. :(

    Good luck E-True...you can do it...I hope the New Year brings you much love and peace.♥

    Yep. I make them every year and some of them I stick to, others I don't. This time, I am determined to:

    Pay off at least $10,000 of my loan
    Lose at least ten kilos
    Exercise often
    Eat healthier

    Just the usual ones, really.

    I just ordered my first "smart" phone. My resolution is to make it through the entire new year without losing it.
