    There was a similar thread made last year, not made by me, but I figured I'd pose the question again:

    What are your New Year's Resolutions for 2018? How are you planning on fulfilling them?

    For example:

    I'm going to make less bad excuses for myself. I always find reasons not to do what I really want to. I'll start paying attention to when excuses originate from myself (instead of from other people and situations). I also want to bring a map to Release Candidate.

    I'll try to work more on my maps (especially with the April Fools and 5Connect contests in 2018) so that I can release more of them to this site.

    I'm gonna try to improve my self discipline. Would really help with a lot of shit such as exercising, snacking less, focussing when working on projects or when studying, etc.

    Creative-wise, I want to try to get a map to the late Beta/early RC stages. I also want to learn how to make a game, then start finalizing the ideas I've had for one. I also want to improve my drawing skills, because at this moment hands and feet/shoes are the bane of my existence.

    Health-wise, I want to lose weight and improve my dental hygiene.

    Also, everyone! Don't forget to check out 2017's resolutions (heres 2016's too) if you made them

    Not so much "resolutions" as much as they are "goals" I've had in mind for a while, but:

    I'm planning on recording and finishing my black metal demo tape sometime within the first two quarters of the year. Hopefully sooner rather than later, but university work may have me taking more time than I'd like. Once that's finished, I'm releasing it on Bandcamp and printing some tapes for it. I've been actively writing as we speak, so it's going to happen eventually.

    I'm also planning on working on only one major mapping project for the year, my upcoming Payload. It should be fully through beta by the end of the summer; and if not, by the end of the fall. Again, it depends on how much work I get in university, and how much work the musical project becomes.

    Other than that, I would like to get some sort of part time job, but we'll see. This year is mainly going to be focused on my music and university.

    This is more of a resolution and improvement agenda but whatev. Basically I want to:

    Get my map audience approved in the layout from testing and (hopefully) getting from a1 to rcx for the connect5 contest.

    Get better at making map(s)

    Get better at my algebra class. (From D+ to the Bs hopefully)

    Finish a Factorio rail world map and be done with it for a while.

    Get better at drawing on the side.

    Ultimately wrangle with time and scheduling a bit better in accordance to school and things.

    I actually want to learn to play the guitar. So far I can already play End of Small Sanctuary and part of Undertale but they're easy and I can't even play all of them.
    Idk playing the guitar just feels kinda relaxing, it's a good stress reliever~
