I've already quit drinking and smoking this year. Maybe next year I'll use that $1000 towel rack "elliptical" that sits in my spare room collecting dust, and possibly drop a few pounds.

Album to be released in May, and prestigious gig already signed for June. 2013 sounds good.

Besides that, my resolution is to achieve what my GF and I wish to do : find a home to live together. We are currently 400 miles from each other. We have to manage with our respective jobs so that we'll be able to live side by side.

And besides that again, yes I still smoke

After being out for 3 years, and then moving back after my split from my ex... man, its killing me.
Im coming up on a year mid-February. I plan to be out before summer.

Also, in regards to my earlier comment... as the year is about to end, Ive decided to set a whole bunch of obtainable goals for 2013. I used to just blow off resolutions, but I really want to grow as a person, and I think setting these goals will put me on that course. A lot of them seem mostly rooted in my own laziness.

- Eat Better (more veggies, less meat substitutes and less fried food). That'll likely mean more cooking.

- Excercise more (Yoga & Jogging, 2x a week each) I'll have to set aside more time Mon - Thursday, a minimum of 30 minutes each day.

- Join a coverband making at least $100 a gig (which will tie in with my next goal). Time to start learning some covers (At least 2 new songs a week, to start).

- Practice more Bass (see above - along with learning new songs, work on theory)

- Write more
a)Music (likely to happen as I learn new songs and put my theory learning to work)
b)Poetry (Starting with my 365 line prose beginning Jan 1st, adding one new line per day)

- Better my relationship with my girlfriend (this is more of a reminder to continue being awesome and avoid making mistakes Ive made in past relationships)

- Be more self-aware (via meditation and reflection)

- And, GTFO of my parents house (stated again for emphasis)

So, there are my 2013 Goals/Resolutions. All of them should be easy enough to accomplish if I can avoid my usual pitfalls of laziness. By 2014, I will be superhuman.
