Ok, so it’s a little late for these, but I was caught up in the continuing saga of evaluating the 5th Edition bugs when the new year ticked over. Besides, everyone and their mother was posting “New Year’s Resolution” threads, so mine simply would’ve been lost in the shuffle, right?
As for my hobbies, I’ll set forth the following goals:
- Achieve 130 painting points.
- Army specific Objectives
- Base my entire Tyranid Swarm
- Sell off my Eldar force (non-Exodite)
- Sell off spare models I’ve collected that I have no intention of ever using (Terminators, Spare Chaos)
- Coordinate three Apocalypse games (including the recently passed Arctic Apocalypse 2010)
- Avoid starting any new armies. Or, if I start a new army, do not use any new money to fund that army–using only what I’ve earned from above)
- Blog related Objectives:
- Create 100 blog posts for the year.
- Inspire at least one of my friends to start a blog (or start posting on my blog)
- Get mentioned in the “Tuesday Top Ten” post on FTW at least three times
- Get linked to by more fellow bloggers–perhaps by holding contests?
- Create army specific pages for each of my established forces displaying the content of each.
- Avoid starting any MMO’s (they’re the devil)
I’m hesitant to post any more goals, as I’m fairly flighty when it comes to hobbies. In Alaska (which is seemingly unlike other locations in more than climate), we tend to run our games in cycles. As a result, I usually focus my attention on one game for 6-12 months, and then put it away for a few years before dusting it off and resuming the addiction. Additionally, I’ve already set a set of non-hobby related goals on my personal blog, which you’re welcome to check out. Hopefully I can accomplish them all.
I didn’t have any (hobby related) goals for 2009, so I can’t say whether or not I’ve accomplished them, but I do feel like I’ve done alot. For a guy that loathes painting (or at least who used to), I’d say I’ve done pretty awesome this past year…
Anywho, happy (belated) New Year to you all.
