What is your resolution for next year? Did you meet last year's?

For me I'm thinking either learning to sail or learning to paramotor (though not paragliding because I very much like being alive).

Sailing is the much more practical option on account of the ready availability of cheap boat rental clubs all over the place around here, so that will probably win.

Mine is starting to save money for once and not constantly, constantly, splurging it on ephemeral things to make it seem like I'm rich while in reality I'm riding the line.

Are these living ducks or dead ducks? If they are living ducks, would it be O.K. if they ended up veering off course on account of their ability to fly on their own?

If they are dead ducks, have you considered freezing them?

Update: It looks like Sailing wins. Most people around here never even heard of a Paramotor, whereas many people around here can sail. I can ask plenty of friends for help and advice, have easy access to equipment, and have a large number of training schools with great reputations right in my back yard. I don't need to own/maintain my own equipment and can use things at my leisure for a fraction of the cost of paramotors.

It's just a question of finding a babysitter.

I feel like Tarq would give me a pass. Also, if I catch the duck, is he out?

Finally finish my degree.

Finish plotting my webcomic.

Draw the webcomic. (This one is more a five year plan)

Get into management and out of the field, because even though I make bank it's hard being on the road as much as I am.

Turns out good throwing ducks aren't as cheap as I thought.
