2017 Resolutions

I have high hopes for 2017.  Some things I wish to do:

  1. ¬†Connect with local game shop Montag’s in Pearland, TX.¬† I have been going for a while here and there, but I want to spend more time and money there and meet like-minded individuals.
  2. Control Kickstarter spending.  Only 6 for 2017 will be the goal.
  3. Buy less boardgames – I buy them and then shelve them….
  4. Play more of the games I want to play.  DCC for rpgs and Imperial Assault, xwing/Armada.
  5. continue to play DCC on Fridays with family; possibly branch out to another game OR start a second DCC campaign.
  6. pay less attention to Facebook.
  7. find an online game and return to Payday 2 type of play – that game was amazing and so damn fun and everyone played it.¬† Need a game everyone wants to play.¬† I’m not sure this is possible.
  8. Read a dozen more books.  One per month.
  9. Don’t play games I don’t want to play.
  10. Find my place in Scouts with a lesser role but enjoy my time with my son (who is now a Life scout.)  Being treasurer for 9 years now is starting to wear on me.
  11. Enjoy a family vacation in New York or Disneyland.¬†¬† I’m actually leaning New York.¬† I want my family to visit this iconic place.
  12. Play 40 rounds of disc golf
  13. perfect my job performance.  worry and stress less.
  14. find creative endeavor……¬† (I don’t know what this means.¬† I try things and they go away.¬† but I must have an outlet and this blog isn’t it)
  15. continue to recognize further the negative aspects of social media while embracing the positive aspects.
  16. Get down to 195 lbs.  (currently at 202)


11/23/17 update with results:


  1. ¬†I failed here.¬† I don’t even support this Guy.¬† However, we are now trying to meet there every other week, so I will be in a better position to do this in 2018.¬† However, it won’t be a goal, as the importance of this isn’t very high to me at the moment.¬† I do think I will try to get him more money and maybe buy through him.
  2. Partial success.  I cut WAY back.  I did go above 6, I had 9, but fantastic reduction.  Gonna shoot for 6 again next year.
  3. I did buy less.  Success.
  4. Success, and with the Robinson’s doing Saturday night gaming periodically, I will do even better in 2018.
  5. HUGE success
  6. partial success.¬† Sadly, I have hidden people.¬† For the first half of the year I just endured, but my policy is people who use the word ‘trump’ are hidden.¬† I just don’t want to hear it.
  7. partial success.¬† Wow was good for a while, but all I play, once again, is Heroes of the Storm.¬† Maybe that’s ok.
