Writer's Block: Auld Lang Syne

What are your New Year's resolutions? Do you think you'll stick to any of them? If so, for how long?
I have two this year:

1) To do, on average, less than four stupid things per day (i.e. 1,459 or less throughout the year). And yes, pathvain_aelien, I know everyone does stupid things, but I decided I want to see if I actually do so more often than most people like it always seems like. Anyway, I'll probably be able to keep this one until January 3.
2) To work on one or more of my various semi-creative projects (i.e. new LJ userpics, Moya's Space Log [For anyone that's reading this from the recent answers page, that's a story I tried to write for NaNoWriMo that's based on Super Mario Galaxy 2 but with Enya and Moya joining the Mario Bros. It's in a custom friends group, so comment here if you want to read it], Ours Will You 1-Up [which sadly has been under new management for over a year now], etc.) at least an hour (if more than one project, at least an hour altogether) a day for at least 317 days of the year (giving me 4 days per month, a little less than a day per week, to procrastinate or have an unreasonable amount of homework). I'll probably be able to keep this one until January 5.

I've already failed at two of my new years resolutions! :(

Technically, I can't fail my second one yet, because I allowed myself 48 days out of the year to procrastinate or have too many other things to do, so the worst I could do is use them all up the first 48 days of the year and then procrastinate or be too busy the day after that, which means I can't fail it before February 18. And I only said January 5 in the entry because I had forgotten to take into account that I get an average of 4 procrastination/too busy days each month, not for the whole year. :)

I'm doing good so far with the first one, too - I actually haven't done anything stupid yet this year, and that's saying a lot considering my broad definition of "stupid stuff" :)

That is a hilarious userpic, by the way!

That is good!! You thought it out well I think.

One of my resolutions was to not bite my nails. (I bit them already.) I should have been a bit easier on myself, and at least started with cutting down on biting my nails, rather than just stopping straight away. I read somewhere that most people have the habit of making their resolutions too hard, and with each resolution we should write 10 steps to get to that point. I don't know if that makes sense, I'm not articulating myself very well today. *yawn* Very tired. But you seem to have thought yours out much better than I did.

Thanks, I made my userpic! :)

Writing down 10 steps to get to the point would definitely help! I should try that next year if I fail one of these this year. :)

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...


For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
