At some point I resolved to stop making New Year’s resolutions because I was so bad at following through on them. But for that very reason, I returned the next year and every year since inspired to recommit myself to any number of goals I’d probably never achieve.

And even though I try to make it a little bit easier with each subsequent year, in the hopes that maybe, just maybe I’ll make it another 365 days and finally be able to claim with a straight face that it worked for once, success has not exactly been forthcoming.

So this year I resolve simply to beat a single game from my backlog. Maybe Lost Odyssey. It’d also be nice to maybe read to completion at least one in five of the books I actually buy.

What about you? What are your resolutions for 2017?
