    Proud to say I exercise thanks to the Air Force making me and teaching me how wonderful exercise is. I quit last new years and feel better than ever, I learned the importance of drinking water (a canteen an hour) at boot camp and carry a bottle of water to work with me and drink powerade from the soda fountain at lunch.. I goto bed early like an old grand pa.. last night I fell asleep at 6:30pm to Ice age. I built a new Llano rig this year which does the job.. that leaves the major goals:

    Get a degree!!!!!!!
    Get lost in the mountains of Montana


    I quit smoking last year not exercising lol

    I'd like to spend more time building computers, and less time wastefully surfing the internet. I also plan on spending a lot of time on my new treadclimber, and getting rid of the gut.

    I'm ~10kgs. shy from my ideal body weight.

    that exercise regimen includes walking/running my two dogs around the perimeter of my house.

    Save up and go on a all-out one to remember holiday. I haven't even been abroad for 10 years and 2013 is the year to change that.

    What I believe was the only resolution for this year that I couldn't take on... learn to play the guitar.

    I'll start to read more articles and reviews. I'm not good at comments and getting along with users who's smarter than I am. So the only way is to enhance my critical thinking.

    Lastly, maybe back off a little bit from gaming. I'm addicted, and it's time for me to kick that habit.

    Hey, if you got the time for gaming, I'd hold on to it before something eats into it and you might have little to no playing time left :'(
