New Years Resolutions?

    Anybody made New Years resolutions? Anybody broken one or more already?

    I generally don't make them but this year I'm determined to stick to these;
    • Finally learn to PLAY guitar

      I've been 'playing' (I use the term very loosely) since I was 17, but never really progressed and my interest dwindled. Recently I picked up my trusty axe and decided I would learn to actually play the guitar, theory and all! Hopefully a gorgeous new one on pay day will help rekindle my interest :icon_biggrin:

    • Get off deviantART and onto Behance

      Recently comments about deviantART being 'the creative MySpace' were finally realised. Whilst there are some gems of fantastic art and photography, the site is saturated with 'photography' of people in the same pose with Photoshop filters applied, which makes finding decent art harder and harder. Behance is for professionals, and I want to be one!

    • Get handsome and replace the cheesy pictures on my blog

      Seriously? Have you seen them?!

    I'm no professional artist though so DA suits me fine:)

    eat more(real food, not junk)
    and try to be more active

    But if people are stupid they need to know! I love road rage, though perhaps I love it a little too much :p

    I have to come back to this to say this;

    I had a sneaky coke today! bahh, and 2 red bulls :icon_mad: ohwell, slight glitch, I can't stop the sugar intake it needs to be regulated!
    food is going okay, i had a cake yesterday though, can't be good.
    active isn't going too great,I haven't really tried that hard :(

    Just one resolution:

    Win at least £500,000 on lottery or Premium bonds.

    Lost £2.40 so far.

    Need lots of luck.

    Should think of something more achieveable really. . .

    Got the max in premium bonds and I have probably only won £100 in the last 10 months :icon_mad:

    Yeah....perhaps I'll learn to fly. It's easy you just throw yourself at the ground and miss.

    I've got some premium bonds that have been sat in a drawer for 25 years. They cost a pound each at the time, if I'm lucky they might be worth that now!

    I've got to say - Premium Bonds are currently a terrible investment vs alternative investments.

    Yes I know, 'it could be you'. :icon_wink:

    I think you're being a bit harsh on yourself with #3!
