    2006 Resolutions

    Aside from the coaster stuff you like...or what you think would benefit the "real world"...


    What is your resolution for 2006?

    Mine? To finally relax. To save money. Most of all...to get RoadRunner HighSpeed.
    Ask me why I say Banshee is NOT the new Kings Island coaster.
    Be sure to check out Speedzone as I have made 11 additions.

    I'm working on the saving money part. Easy thing I want to do is get new bike grips for the one bike.

    I got a few in mind:

    1. Get a lot of excercise and work out.
    I got kinda lazy and ate things left and right during the holiday season. I got my senior year with the swim team coming up, and I want to leave the team with a good note behind.
    2. Get on my bike more.
    I think I could've rode my bike a lot more during the fall than I did. Instead of sitting on the computer shopping for parts, I want to enjoy the stuff I have and get out there.


    2 kinda goes with 1. I'm gonna try and stick with number 1 for a while, and 2 for that matter.

    1. Get alot of exercise and get back in shape.
    2. Live life to the fullest, something I haven't done in a while.

    I actually don't make resolutions. I normally don't see them through so I just stopped making them a few years ago. I have a wish, just not a resolution.

    What is the point of resolutions anyway? I didn't make one because you know darn well your going to break that resolution anytime. ESPECIALLY when its one saying "get more exercise".

    I'm in better physical shape right now than I've ever been in my entire life. I guess my resolution would be to tolerate the short-timers who will be clogging up the gym for the next couple of weeks.

    I have but one resolution: To keep in mind that everything I do for the next year and a half will influence my shchoolwork and which college I get into. This doesn't mean to be a straight A student, it simply means to keep something in mind.

    I'm just going to overall going to try and be a better person spiritually, physically, mentally, and socially.

    I'm going to start reading my bible more, quit eating stuff I don't need, dedicate more time to school work, and hang out with friends more.

    To sum it all up, I'm going to get off my computer more often.

    My 3 resolutions:

    1) I have been working out very steadily since November, and I hope to carry that over into 2006.

    2) To finally dunk on a regulation sized basketball hoop (I am only 5'8'' and already at rim).

    3) To dedicate my summer to the 3 different sports I am participating in (basketball, football, boxing) and to save the money I make at work.

    Does anybody know any way that you can work out to jump higher? Thats what I need to focus on. It is a shame that I'm 5 foot 11 and I still am about 4 inches away from the rim.

    1- To ride Serial Thriller when it re opens.

    2- To Ride SFDL's Viper, Mind Eraser, and Predator, back seat, and live to tell the tale.

    3- To convince my mom to bring me to Cypress Gardens when we go to FL in April.

    4- To loaf around and play my Xbox 360 as much as possible (that is one heck of a console)

    My "Resolution" involves someone I met nearly two years ago... Probably for the better if I don't go into details.

    Same here.

    Also, I "resolve" to preorder a Nintendo Revolution and also the new Zelda game for Gamecube. Another resolution I have is to finally go on my first date this year.
