Mainly to: Give up smoking.

So far, so good!!

Also to get a job as soon as I get back to uni, becaus I have discovered I can't live entirely off my student loan!!

I have more or less given up smoking. sorta.

I never got a job. But I will, so im carrying that over to next year.

I'm also adding: stop being so bloody anxious about everything, cos im gonna give myself a stomach ulcer.

<Engineer>Well, there's no "new year" after all. Jan. 1 is not any different than the rest 364 days. We need numbers and names in order to organize our lives in a better way. Other than this reason, it's useless and causes an overrated series of events. Besides, why do people celebrate it anyway? Everyone has a limited amount of time and they're happy with running out of it? Have they accomplished all of their goals? If not, then it's plain unreasonable. </Engineer>

On the other hand, life is like cooking. Without spices, the food would just not be that enjoyable. These dates that we've made up (new year, valentines, birthday, mother's/father's day...) are some of the spices I could name. Besides, it's fun and I totally disagree with you: every second differs from the other, let alone the whole year. Everything you experience and everyone you meet changes you slightly. These changes may not be noticeable as they are tiny details but if you evaluate the past year, you can see that in overall, they make you better, more understanding and more patient. Thus, effecting the decisions you will be making in the future.
