Resolution #1: I’m going to level a Mage in RIFT from 1 to 60
I’m really starting to think that the Mage life is the life for me (in RIFT at least). I’m well on my way already, having gotten my character to level 22 in two days. Instant adventures and dungeoneering, here I come!
Resolution #2: I’m going to make my level 20 Warden in LOTRO my main and get her to 85
Time for a new perspective in LOTRO, because I am bored to tears with my Captain. My sweet level 20 Warden has been begging me for more attention, and now that there’s faster leveling and remote looting, it might just be the time. My plan here is to focus exclusively on virtues for leveling with a side dish of group skirmishes and dungeons. I’m ignoring volume 1, but will jump on board with volumes 2 and 3 of the epic storyline. We’ll see how it goes.
Resolution #3: I’m going to get to 100% map completion in Guild Wars 2
67% and counting, baby! And then, alts? Mayhaps?
Resolution #4: I’m going to finally finish all of the featured episodes in Star Trek Online
This shouldn’t take TOO long, as I only have about 10 or so of them to do. It would be nice to experience them all and be sitting pretty for the next set that eventually release.
Resolution #5: I’m going to learn how to make podcasts
I’ve gotten to the point in my life where I know that I need to buckle down and actually learn how to make, not just record, a podcast. I have an idea for a project, but it’s going to require me to put aside some time to master all of the quirks of podcast assembly.
Resolution #6: I’m going to focus more on play session stories on Bio Break
I’ve already been doing this, but I’m just going to put it out there that I’m more interested in the day-to-day adventures of gaming than chewing on all of the big meta debates and topics that we’ve been talking about for years.
Resolution #7: To join a GeoCaching team
I’m nervous about doing this, but I’d really like to be GeoCaching with a group of people instead of just myself. Again, it’s a time issue, but even if it’s once a month, that’d be pretty fun.
Resolution #8: To lose 40 more pounds and exercise regularly
I’ve made a good start on my weight loss but I’m terrified that I’m either plateauing or will backslide. That’s why I need to add exercise and get serious about putting off the rest of this weight. I’d love to hit my target goal by the end of summer, if not the end of the year.
Resolution #9: To watch all of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Fringe
Here are two series I’ve been meaning to watch in their entirety and haven’t yet. DS9 is something that I’ve lightly watched but never got into, mostly because I was in college (without a TV) for most of its run. Happily, Netflix streaming + MMO gaming = multitasking.
Resolution #10: To group more, help more, and enjoy the journey more
I still like to create goals and embark on new projects, but I really want to loosen up more and be okay getting off the beaten path. I’m making no promises what games I will play (other than LOTRO and RIFT), but I’m willing to bet that I’ll keep trying old and new games during the year.
