1080p same as last year

On a serious note I want to quit smoking but the reason I smoke is stress from the job so not sure how to approach that. Thinking of just going cold turkey since I am not a chain smoker and only smoke 3-5 cigarettes a day so the withdrawals should be manageable.

this is an underrated joke.

I want to make at least one full meal per month using only ingredients that I have either grown myself or foraged. Hopefully many more, but at least one.

This is a great one. I worked with a guy who worked all year gathering, gardening, hunting, and putting things up so that he could try to go the whole month of January on only that for him and his family. He never quite made it, but it was very impressive anyway.

That is the dream! Unfortunately this is definitely out of my reach at the moment, living in an apartment in a large city. Even carrots are wrapped in plastic in my local supermarket… As soon as I am able to I want to move somewhere more rural.

I like this one. Not for me, at least this year. But I like it…it’s challenging and socially conscious.

I don’t make them because they feel silly. So instead I’m going to make improvements in my life when and where it feels natural, and hope I don’t die in the meantime, as I do every year.

I find myself vowing to make changes year round as well. But sometimes a tradition like this can be a good reminder. I was already planning to do more reading, so since I remembered resolutions are a thing, I guess that can be my resolution.

Wait 2 weeks before start going back to the gym, so that all the people with “year resolutions” get bored and make room for me.

I’ve worked in a gym…I can assure you that your reasoning is sound…if you delay the resolution two weeks, you will definitely get plenty of space at the gym …just make sure to start before summer months, when people start their gym goals again.

Thanks! I already have this though. I am actually using a newer book for now, because I am not that smart and need more elaborate explanations. Don’t worry, I am not looking for a job, just a hobby that I enjoy.

And have you heard of Zig? You might be interested in it for your future projects :)

I have not, until now, heard of Zig - checking out the website right now. I’m literally very early in my C learning. Trying to get through the chapters on Arrays and Pointers in the book I am working from and its not going well!
I actually don’t have projects to work on now, learning C is just a mental challenge that I mostly enjoy doing. For now, but I may have hit my wall and its barely the 2nd of January!

Try to not procrastinate as much as I do. Learn Rust, improve in marcial arts (I really suck tbh) and practice more sport meanwhile.

Also not sleeping in class will be a nice thing to accomplish…

Nothing really, getting out of depression would be nice.

To make more Free Debian GNU/Linux (stable) installations.

Installing Arch Linux on my pc.

If you can follow directions and only follow from arch wiki…it’s actually much easier than everyone says and pacman is wonderful and super fast…even large updates take mere minutes.

Also, insofar as things “breaking” after updates that’s mostly hyperbole, especially for a casual user.

A real challenge (skill and patience) would be Gentoo! But again, with following directions it’s doable

Arch was my first Linux ever, but I have to say that their installation guide lacks of some stuff. In terms of how to partition disks and the bootloader part. But you can search for that stuff elsewhere.

P.D: Agreed that the best way is the ArchWiki

Yeah, I always forget, my first ARCH install, didn’t work because of partitioning - but right after, I successfully installed gentoo - their guide to partitioning was thorough, but then went back to ARCH as I am not patient enough to build everything.

Last year I wanted to have a child, write a book, attempt to self-host all the services I personally use, substantially stop using big tech sites, read more books, clean up the back yard, set up our big swimming pool, cut down our apple tree, set up a standing garden, arrange to take 3 full months off with my newborn child, get our fire pit licensed, and lose some weight.

I didn’t get a chance to get the fire pit licensed, and I didn’t lose any weight. Check out “The Graysonian Ethic: Lessons for my unborn son” on Amazon. It’s less than $10 for a hardcopy, and less than $5 for an ebook.

For this year:

I want to make sure every day to stimulate my son so he doesn’t grow up with developmental delays due to COVID (many COVID babies are suffering developmental delays to the point that the average IQ is in the high 70s instead of around 100 where it should be!)

I want to get the network routines for my newjrpg engine running and get a working demo of the game engine in action using the network routines because that’s been a stumbling block for a while and I can’t realistically move forward with the project until I’ve got the basic server and client running.

I want to spend some time and money properly getting the word out to The Graysonian Ethic, since the feedback I’ve been getting is that it’s a really good book but it isn’t selling because people aren’t aware of it

I want to pay off my line of credit

I want to stop renting my AC unit

Last year I upgraded an old electric bike to a lithium ion battery from a lead acid battery, I want to start using it for simple transportation when the weather is acceptable for it.

I want to get my asthma properly managed finally so I can move around more without struggling

I’d like to make substantial progress on writing a textbook about programming in FreeBASIC that covers all the major features of the language in a way that can help someone who doesn’t know how to program get from not knowing what FreeBASIC is to making substantial programs.

Get my motorcycle license and get my motorcycle on the road

It’s a new year’s resolution in the sense that it’s my 2022 plan, but it’s a pure accident that most of the things I wanted done in 2021 were completed by the end of the year.

Never made one. Never gonna lie to me. Never gonna make me one. Never gonna let me down. Never gonna sob me down.
