I never make new years resolutions and never have. But this year I am going to do it. This next year I am going to try and be a little more diplomatic, less abrasive forward and blunt. In other words, candy coat what I have to say so people don't get caught off guard and get all angst and run from dialog.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

That's one of the most difficult things to do in life, especially when dealing with people who don't offer you the same level of respect.

My New Year's resolution shall henceforth be to gain a lot of weight. I'm not talking about 5-10 lbs here. 130 pounds. 190 pounds. Something crazy like those numbers. I want people to get so concerned they have an intervention for me, yeah the kind on T.V. Think of all the awesome, fatty, sugary, delicious food you could consume. No exercise; no need go shopping for clothes, since you're always expanding. I'll just wear a robe and smoke a cigar. People will think I'm in the Mafia, it'll be great.

You make me laugh WSA. Hilarious.

I need to make myself a resolution so I go to sleep earlier. I don't know why, I just never do. I want to, but when that time comes it just passes and it's gone.

Ehhh, I guess I just don't really understand New Year's Resolutions, if you know you have something you should improve about yourself why not begin today, or tomorrow? Saying you'll begin it on New Years, a time in the future, just leads to putting it off, in my experience at least.

Score!

I need to make myself a resolution so I go to sleep earlier. I don't know why, I just never do. I want to, but when that time comes it just passes and it's gone.

Protips:

1. Don't consume any refined carbohydrates (e.g. HFCS, white bread) for a few hours before bed.
2. Turn off all addictive electronic devices and put a barrier between yourself and them (e.g. putting the laptop in its case and the phone in your backpack).
3. Take a bath/shower about an hour before going to bed. Drink a little water after that.
4. Read a book for a few minutes.
5. Turn off all lights, get ear plugs/eye shades if it helps, and just think about random stuff until you drift off. This also helps in creating some interesting dreams.

At least that's what works for me. Some people eat foods high in tryptophan, niacin, melatonin, and calcium about 30-60 minutes before bed like peanut butter, grapes, and turkey. Some suggest warm milk and Good Night tea help in the process as well.

Try to get into a routine that works for you. But, if your friends are going out on Friday or Saturday to party or do something stupidly fun, just go with them. Life is too short to be puritanically rigid about everything.

I think it just feels different, like 'a new year, a new me' type of thing.

I resolve to only commit 3 murders this year. It's going to be tough, but you have to take baby steps. Right?

Why don't you just ease it monthly? Jumping right to only killing 3 might be too difficult, and throw you right back into your addiction cycle. Taper it off: January, 406 murders; February, 389 murders; March, 357 murders; and so on.

You should make a new year's resolution that you will try to make a new year's resolution next year.

First kill should be a baby and save their feet, so you always have them as a reminder that you are taking baby steps.

Oh, gimme a break, you forgot to drain the blood before baking last time, and it made a huge mess, and there was intestines everywhere. Tasted great still, even if it was off the walls, but it so much more convenient to eat it from the bone.

That's why you crook pot and never microwave (unless you're staying at a hotel and can have room service clean up)

Mexican room service. They take the blame (we always blame mexicans).

True, but that asian hermaprodite I grilled was excellent. I salted that bad shemale to perfection I remember that you loved the penis.

It's not going to be easy, it's going to be difficult and it will take practice, but I promise that your relationships will improve drastically after this 20-week program. I used to teach a class in China on a similar topic. PM any time you feel the urge to exceed your quota.

Seriously though, my resolution is to develop a particular subset of my social skills. I need to learn how to reduce the conflicts that i do have and handle the unavoidable ones better, while also saying what needs to be said. I lack a great deal of social skills but this one in particular almost completely fvcked me over fairly recently (long story there -_-) and so learning it will have to be a priority for me.
