For some reason I've been missing one this year.
So...go ahead.

Become less obnoxious, get more clients so I can support myself sooner, complete tasks that I set for myself...
That's about it for me (I guess )

I think it'll be 1600x1200, it kind of depends on the native resolution of my new monitor

May the next year be so good, that we will decide to push the earth away from the sun just to gain an extra couple of days till the year ends.

Could also cool down the Earth a bit. Solving the problem of climate change the "easy way"?

Regain interest in everything I lost interest in this year, and maybe come back to normal activity here.

Also, decide what I want to do with the rest of my life.

- Trying to avoid eating things I know are unhealthy (i.e. consume less butter, sugar, etc.). Not a diet, just scaling back. When I was an undergrad, I was much better at this, drank a ton of water, and now as a grad student, I need quick meals and stuff so I've become a bit lazy.

- Ask that girl out.

- See #2.

- Promulgate my propaganda.

- Get a hand on my changed daily schedule to do work more effictively.

  • Keep my more balanced life style I began since I started year 2 of 'gymnasium', which basically is less study, less chess, more physical training, earlier nights. Though since it started ½ year ago almost, it's not really
  • Whine less unless it's funny 'angry Nintendo nerd whining', but even this was some time ago I started with.

Well...
2007 was a year for me that was like waking up on the wrong side of the bed, everything didn't work out, but I think 2008 will be a very eventful and good year for me.

My objectives:
Take my table tennis more seriously
Give chess a break
Improve my German from its current state
Get my programing up to scratch

In fact, I have too many goals to name, I think it would be best to say that I have lots of work ahead.

"Have a wedding" isn't really a new year's resolution

He's probably gonna have it anyway.
A new year's resolution is some goal you set to yourself for the year, something that you don't do anyway and is usually supposed to improve you and your life.

Preferably underage ones!

wtf, if you want to come back then come back, i don't see why that should be a new year's resolution, like it's a big challenge or something.
