Ugh, I never really did new year's resolutions since I never went through with them, but I definitely would like to be more consistent with my workouts. I was doing good the first five months I was lifting, then I got caught up in a new job with crazy hours and lost motivation. I'd also like to get a career going next year so I can finally get a new car and possibly my own place.

And finally my last resolution is to ride my 100th coaster (My count is 68) and visit one or more of the following parks:
Kings Island
Cedar Point
Dollywood
Kennywood
Knoebels
Carowinds

EDIT:I can't believe I forgot to add Six Flags Great Adventure to the list. I'd love to experience El Toro! :)

Run a marathon or at least walk it. If it happens it will actually be January of 2016 but the training will have to start in 2015.

Enjoy the present, and don't stress out about an unknown future.

Say goodbye to bacon and butter. That will probably last for two weeks before I start to hate myself.

Not a resolution here. But interesting to note.
Here's how they do New Year's in Denmark...

Copenhagen, Denmark
Normally the Danes are thought of as a fairly sensible lot, but this all goes out the window on New Year's Eve. Crockery smashing and jumping off chairs are just two of the traditions that you can take part in if you plan a New Year trip to Copenhagen. The locals stand on chairs and jump off of them at the stroke of midnight in unison, literally jumping forward into the New Year. This is supposed to banish evil spirits, who are left behind in the old year. Smashing up old plates, teacups, and other assorted tableware items is also a part of the festivities, meant to bring about good luck. As you wind your way through the city streets, you'll have to dodge the broken crockery on the way to the party at Amalienborg Square.

That is a lot of crockery to clean up.

Do I get double the good luck and evil spirit banishing power if I do both at once? :lol:

A new Res for myself...

I do want to get back to Tokyo Disney Resort as often as I can afford, in time and budget. And although the total time in the new additions and alterations to both parks, will be about 9 years...I can't wait that long darnit!!!

So my New Year's Resolution is to visit TDLR in the years 2017, 2020...and finally in 2023,
when everything is (supposed to be) finished and in place, woo hoo!

That's a nice Resolution I'd say, hmm? :mickey:

(And I think I can keep it too, lol.)
