2019 is fast approaching. Soon, 2018 will be left behind in a burning, rotting wreck where it belongs and the New Year will herald the arrival of new challenges, new opportunities, and most importantly, new resolutions. Will you be able to keep them? If you're like 99.8% of the country, probably not, but...maybe this year's the year!


Reddit user, u/oknatethegreat, wanted to know what are you hoping to improve for the coming year when they asked:

Reddit, what's your New Year's resolution for 2019?

Work On That Foreign Language

Improve my German to the point I can at least talk to my coworkers without them having to switch to english

Moving on from sh-tty relationships can be tough, but sooo worth it in the long term.

Wish you best of luck buddy.

Can't Seduce You If It's Not There

Eat better. I've got the exercising thing down. I just struggle with excessive snacking.

Don't buy the candy. If it's in the cupboard it's free. It's easier to ignore it once then twice a day.

Fruit lots of fruit. I don't know if 10 apples a day is healthy but I stopped buying candy and less sugar = less pain and it became self reinforcing the same way a coffee makes you enjoy the bitter.

Aiming For The Stars

Get a real career, be more productive, try.

GladMax

I believe in you

I started off at 2 miles three times a week with one increasingly long run every weekend to train for my marathons. You can do it!

Sound familiar to anyone?

Not rich; we're not talking "retire-in-luxury to Buenos Aires" level coin; just comfortable and with growth potential if you're smart about things.

If any job in the world put you at the precipice of stability - what would you *choose* to do?
