Hmm...

Things that I want to accomplish:

-Get a 7 on my visual arts final project

-Get accepted into the summer program at Oxford

-Read more classics

-Advance past provincials for my upcoming debate tournament

-Collect more antiquerian books

-Become proficient in French, Python, and Objective-C, all of which I know and none of which I am very good at

General things that I want to change about myself:

-Stop procrastinating so much

-Stop spending so much time on the internet (lolno)

What are your resolutions?

Get enough money to pay for tuition, R&B and other expenses at Columbia...

On the other hand, I want to see how much power a student can get in a school.

As Rena said above...learn python and apply it to grab daily data from trusted statistics sites.

Build a helicopter

Beat the others in javelin at T&F

Raid my nearest university library's stash of sheet music

Break bricks with my bare hands (I swear I'm really close to doing so)

I prefer to call is a wishlist, but looks like I'll have to do some of this in the near future.

None because I'm perfect :angel:

Nah my resolution is to win some small scholarships and earn enough money to pay for part of my university expenses next year.

And a B+ or better in math. I had a B last semester, IT MUST BE HIGHER DARNIT.

^I'd settle for a B, I'll be asking for some of your help every now and then when Calc 2 starts...

Some things I need to start working on:

  • Start reading and writing more than I do
  • Write down my goals, and break down large goals into small ones
  • Manage my time more efficiently
  • Maintain a 70% average throughout all courses
  • Get a job >.>
  • Meet more people and get involved with the school community
  • I also want a girlfriend... lol but this isn't really the priority

Does a New Year's Resolution just seem silly to me or does anyone else concur? I feel that we'd make new goals/expectations whenever we want, however we want, not because it's the start of a new calendar year.

Why Python? It's rarely practical in the professional world.

That's true. I'm quite new to OOP, and it was recommended as a good introduction. Though I don't think I'll use it for anything but a bit of casual enjoyment, it's still a language that I'd like to get better at.

What language(s) do you code in?

  • I will start eating like a human being (i.e. stop stuffing myself with food or I'll get too big for my clothes)
  • Start using more natural cosmetics - quality over quantity
  • Get these damn grades I need
  • Get some serious rest after the exams
  • Start reading more and watching less
  • Pick up running again

I quit smoking. :superman:

It's been 20 hours so far...and I'm ready to give up. :surrender:

Good luck!

I am going to eat less, up the intensity of my exercise and stop living in studious denial of pharmacology. The second two aren't so bad, but eating less... 1 day of it and it's amazing how compelling your stomach can be when it tells you you're hungry @_@

Me too :( ...5 girlfriends sounds like a nightmare unless this is like Sims 3..

My new Year's resolution is to eat more real food, as in vegetables, because apparently bread does not count as a vegetable :lies:

It's quite easy. You just need experience.

Have you ever heard of SAGEMATH? If not, go check it out. That alone is why I need to learn Python.

I'm starting to learn C1999... and it's not that bad. Why are you taking such programming courses? Are you studying pure maths in the future?

I don't take programming courses. SAGEMATH is pretty useful in terms of its functionality, and I have to learn Python to take full advantage of it.
