This time around I got 4 out of 5 from last year's goals!
Well...the last one regarding drinking showed signs of improvements but a few things hindered that, mainly my inability to cope with issues without alcohol present. Currently going weekdays sober unless during social gatherings, and the occasional drinking evening on Rooster Speak is always an enjoyable time!
Hit the million REQ points in Halo 5, and pretty much dropped it off for Overwatch once that game came out. I really need to get back into Halo 5...(boots up Halo while writing this journal)
I moved out of the apartment back in May...to my Dad's place/childhood home. He'd fallen on rough times and wanted someone back at the home and it all worked out really well. Currently saving money right now to buy a house of my own while I'm here with cheaper rent!
My average steps per day according to the fitbit is 9,762 for the 2016 year so far! I say that's pretty darn solid "resolution" ass kicking!
I traveled with @busterblade to Chicago for a day long trip to see Ninja Sex Party...so that counts!
Looking back on a year and trying to grade it as a good/bad year has always seemed odd to me. I always try to look at the positives even during the dark and bleak times that occurred. The one thing that remains constant, even though I'm not posting as much as I'd like to on friend's journals and the like here, is you guys. Every time I hop on here and see people posting about their hobbies and how their day's are treating them, I realize how lucky I am to consider at least some of you my friends. I hope to continue being friends in the years to come, and hopefully not be an ass along the way.
Goals for 2017.
1. Buy a house.
2. Playing guitar again, and actually write songs with the riffs I've had lying around all these years.
3. Expand my horizons with entertainment. Watching different shows and going to different events aside from YouTube series and metal concerts would be a nice way to start!
4. Be able to do 100 push-ups and 15 pull-ups non-stop, and run the 2017 Twin Cities Marathon. I can do 50 and 3, respectively. Let's kick some booty. Also running the marathon up here means I can train in the summer instead of the frigid cold!
5. Aim for 200 days of not drinking, and only drinking when at social events. I REALLY need to step up on this, because having lived with my Dad who's been sober now for 9 months, it's really incredible how much his livelihood and well-being has improved and I think the same could be done with me.
Here's to another great year, not just for me but for everyone. Happy holidays, I <4 you all!
