Over the past year, one of the things I have been truly horrible at is keeping in contact with many of my friends. I'll stop IMing or emailing, or I'll run into someone and then fail to keep in contact, or whatever. And I want to apologize to all of you for that - it was an absurdly busy year, and I'll try to do better. And that goes for anyone whom I've hurt or angered this year - know that it was never my intention to do so, and I am sorry if I have.

I've never liked the sound of "resolutions" - we're not passing legislation, here, people - so, following are my plans for 2006:
  • Finish Scatterplot
  • Work on game design, and get at least two games out of my four ideas to a playtesting stage
  • Continue designing puzzles for the next Microsoft Puzzle Hunt
  • Possibly start a new webcomic - I haven't decided whether I actually want to do this.
  • Go to the San Diego Comic Con. Finally.
  • Get called down to LA for Jeopardy (yeah, I know I have no control over it. Still.)
  • Exercise more. Eat healthier.
  • Get my apartment organized, clean, and in sufficient shape to entertain people.

This is going to be a big year, I know it. Happy 11111010110!

Happy New Year, Darth!

And I keep forgetting to ask - if you come up with (or come across) any good puzzles online, send 'em my way! I love puzzles of pretty much any kind (logic, number... anything). They keep me sane!

Take care!

...of course, the defining characteristic of a resolution is that it has no legal weight, unless your desire is to declare war or impeach (i.e. exercise granted executive powers).

I hear you on the "suck at contact" thing...it's a very different world outside of college, y'know? ^_- I figure I can make it a point to be around whenever you want/need to talk to me, and I generally assume the same holds for you (with adequate advance notice, of course), and to me that's really what's important. Rationalization, perhaps, but I also figure I know too many people and get too little useful work done as it is...

Anyway, have a great new year, and good luck with the end of Scatterplot! I'm looking forward to it. :D

If you're undecided about a new comic, don't do it.
If you get the urge to do something, draw something random and post in your journal instead.

Yeah. I was doing tonight's Scatterplot, and realized what a goddamn chore it feels like. Maybe it's just the running-behind thing, but I do feel like even if I got the urge to start a new comic at some point, I'd lose motivation later on...

*hugs* happy new year Darth. Glad we got to see each other even for a little bit while I was out in Seattle, but I've missed chatting with you..perhaps we can try to catch each other online every once in a while :D

Happy New Year, boyo!
Comic Con this year is going to rock beyond measure! You and me, buddy! And Annick. And possibly my godbrother and cousin. But still-a rocking time will be had by all and sundry!

Don't forget -- I am willing to help lend a hand with the organising/cleaning/etc stuff! Just give me the word. :D
