    I know it's not even Christmas yet, but does anybody have anything they would like to do better/differently in 2020?

    My resolution is the same as it was last year: not to worry so much. I made some progress this year, but not as much as I would have liked. I hope this coming year I can do better, but of course I'll try not to worry about it...

    Being completely honest, I feel really u sure of what I'm doing with my life and what I want out of life. I want to feel better about that. Hopefully move out and get a decent job.

    Sleep more, play more video games, care less.

    The best New Year's resolution I could think of would just be to quit drinking. I've spent way too long drinking way too much, getting my sobriety back would be really nice

    I typically don't do resolutions, but next year I want to start dressing more feminine. What's the time limit on resolutions? How long do you have to fulfill your resolution? A month? Two months? All year?

    Declutter and lose weight. And if I can, read more and get back into art

    Losing weight and getting my ability to transport myself back- I desperately need to get a car.

    Oh, and I want to add: finally get my drivers license. I've had my permit for years and I just want to drive already.

    I want to lose weight and try to find a dentist who doesn’t try to rip you off.

    Have a more balanced life. I throw myself as hard as possible into everything I do, and it works, but it's incredibly draining. The concept of a work/life balance is foreign to me. It's all work or all life usually.

    I'd like to become more comfortable dressing in a way that makes me feel comfortable. I'd also like to treat my body better. I don't necessarily want to lose weight but I would like to get in the habit of eating a little better and ~maybe~ go to the gym with my girlfriend occasionally. My biggest goal is finishing my degree and graduating college. It's taken 5 years and I'm ready to be done with it

    Finishing a short story I have been working on and submitting it to a literary journal; entering a short story contest and read more literature. Another goal I would like to fulfill is to travel to Iceland. Been meaning to see, explore it.

    And have an adequate work life balance. I have started paying more attention to it this year, but going to do so much more in 2020.

    I want to keep working in retrieving my reading habit. I managed to read 15 books in 2019 (my goal was at least 12), and it would be great to surpass that goal on 2020. I lost that habit and I really want it back.

    I'll also echo OGS: I need to stop worrying so much. I hope to advance even more in my tranquility during the next year.

    Finally, I hope to step out of my comfort zone and try to work on a plan for my doctorate. I want to do it outside of Brazil and I believe I have to at least try to work on that, even though it is a bit scary!

    Happy holidays, everyone!

    To get my degree and start grad school. And to continue to live authentically and openly.

    No booze. It was a resolution effective at Christmas breakfast when I opted out of the family's decision to open the grog cabinet alarmingly early.

    I didn't make a resolution going in, but after a series of events, decided to disconnect from social media.

    Have packed on the pounds, lately, so want to do something about that.

    Yes, I'm in. Let's do this. Also, little less booze and a little more working out to feel good / sexy.

    My resolution is to try to eat 3 meals every day. Secondary goal is to gain 30lbs so i can finally donate blood, but im not feeling too confident as i havent been able to gain weight since i was 14.
