Rather than resurrect last year's thread and get depressed at what we failed to resolve to do, let's have a new thread where we can record our failures.

What resolutions do you hope to make but will probably break?

Be better at updating film list. I have kept a record of viewings this year, just not ordered about 8 months of them yet!

And get on top of work better - spending a year feeling swamped wasn't fun.

Read more - I read a pathetic 3 or 4 books this year. Compared to my degree where I was reading 2 or 3 a week.

Write more - never get to review as many films as I would like.

Make an effort to see more films at the cinema - through a combination of work and laziness I haven't got out to the cinema that much this year and missed a lot of great films; I hope this year I can change that.

Properly learn Spanish and brush up on my French.

Drop a stone in weight - not overweight, but could do with being slightly leaner.

Find a girl who will tolerate me.

Going to get in shape and eat a healthier diet. I've ordered a swimsuit so I can take up swimming. I've written down a plan on healthy eating and I'm going to try and stick to it the best I can.

Cut down on drinking and limit myself to two glasses of wine a week.

Mine is to write. Everything else I do will be in service of enabling that to happen.

Drink more red wine, turns out i like it!

It's not strictly a new years resolution as i started a few days ago, but i want to beat my PB's on various cycling and running events i've done of the last few years which don't seem to get much better each year. I want to see big changes!

I have 4:

Learn 4 new piano pieces. I left my electric keyboard in London but have access to a piano at work which i can only really play during my lunch break so 4 new pieces is achievable.

Read 40 books by the end of the year. There are some mammoth books I want to read so have made a target less than one book a week.

Run a mile in under 7mins 30seconds.

Quit smoking

Had one of my best years this year, not really got any resolutions as such just a commitment to have an even better year in 2013.

Go to the cinema more. I've managed to make amends for the last two years in the last fortnight of 2012, but now that I'm within walking distance of a cinema I want to make a regular thing of it again.

Get a new job. The one I have allows me to pay the bills etc, but if I'm honest it scares the crap out of me and I don't know if I'm going to quit or get sacked

Do more... stuff.

I resolve not to resolve.

But I really should catch up with my reading and writing in 2013. I miss them.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I fear that he would scare potential girlfriends away.

I might give the writing thing a go. I quite like composing little bits and pieces of prose here and there,

That and stop eating so much shit. I go the gym a fair bit but that tends to be cancelled out by all the crisps etc...

My resolution next year is the same as every year... go inside a woman and become a mod.

Help with either is appreciated.

I want to stop drinking for a few months. Beginning to get very bad with hangovers (not that they are regular occurrence), just i find it gets in the wsy of a lot of things. My main resolution is to get on a career ladder and on my way up. Then maybe I can really start enjoying living

I made one last night with a mate that we would each try find a lovely lady, get into a relationship and keep it until next NYE. I seriously doubt our chances.

Now that I have a steady source of income and will soon have a house and shit, my resolutions are -

- Read and write more. Both have fallen by the wayside in the last few years and I'd like to knock out two plays this year as well as read a lot more than two books (my grand total last year).
- Exercise. I need to set an endgoal for this, but I'm a ball of flesh and I need to go to a gym fcs
- Start collecting vinyl.

That is all really.

A few vague ones:

- Write more blogs
- Make more time to watch my archive of movies (Sky plus, DVD, Bluray)
- Get a girlfriend (this is the vaguest one, cause I don't hold out hope)

Be a bit more active; starting to think I should probably get a bit healthier.

Don't really drink, and don't smoke. But hardly do any exercise. Must rectify.

A few...

1)  Lose weight.  This has been a constant one for a few years but really need to do something this year.  I don't do too badly on the excercise front (typically cycle my 12 mile round trip commute to work 3 times per week minimum) but diet is all over the place.  After a number of false starts, I'd really like to conquer the pastime of jogging/running!

Not only will I want to be a bit fitter and healthier for when my first child is born in April, but I'm determined to set an example to certain people in my life who set a terrible precedent in terms of a glutonous diet and bullshit over why they can't lose weight (namely, the parents-in-law...)

2)  Embrace digital media a lot more.  While I'll continue with DVDs as I genuinely find them cheaper/easier/more versatile than downloading them, I really need to make a more solid move to buying my books and music as downloads.  I have a Kindle but still tend to buy too many paper books, and I'm still am more inclined to buy CDs than MP3s, despite the fact I never really use the discs apart from ripping them to put the tunes on my iPod!  Frankly I'm running out of room for these things and will need the space for childrens stuff in future years.

3)  Spend less of my spare time dawdling around on the internet and read more books!
