    Although if past history is any indication, I’ve never given up anything substantial, when I was a kid, I would make up stupid shit like giving up gum, or soda for the new year… it never stuck…but THIS, this is a special year….Doing this show of mine, I have learned a bunch of lessons, good and bad….
    So this year, I will make some promises and resolutions to and for myself….
    1-Eliminate any negativity and drama in my life-Its too fucking short, and I have no time for that
    Never have before, and don’t know why I allowed myself to get sucked in to any this year…
    2-Enjoy my REAL LIFE friends and family more…
    3-Prune my “trust tree” and keep my treehouse above it all, and free of bad elements.
    4-Enjoy doing the show again, with people that enjoy doing it with me...
    5-Staying true to myself, whether you like me or despise me, I am what I am..


    EDIT- and suck some giant fucking cock you shit stirring lying fucking fake news team douchebags!
    @Slow @dracula or whatever the fuck your name is....

    What are yours? Learn anything this year that you will put into play next year???

    Sounds good. :) I haven't really thought about mine. Have to get around to it I guess. I swear, I have almost the exact same Christmas morning pic with Maximus complete with red jammies and hat (but different team) :)

    Well I'm not sure.... I had a big list last year of all the great things I was going to do, but then after almost 10 years with the company got a pink slip on January 15th. I got a check for 3 months severance which was nice and I thought I would hit the gym everyday and find a new job right away but instead I was a nervous wreck everyday and gained about 30 pounds. Spent way too much time here in the Shed and on Netflix, ESPN and HBO. I applied for more than 400 jobs, got about 30 calls, which turned into interviews with 6 different companies. Got rejected by all 6 - some after multiple interviews, case studies, etc. Really sucked.

    And fuck you, LinkedIn.... if you want to get really depressed, join LinkedIn and see how all of your friends and former colleagues have become VP's and CEOs and won't even bother to return an email or voicemail from you.

    Anyway right before Christmas I landed a new gig - less money, no benefits, contract work but it will get me going in 2016. I have maxed my credit cards, chewed up the 401k and I've applied to drive Uber as well to try and get back on my feet.

    So....to answer the question...... for 2016 I'm really focusing on the basics. Just work hard and try to stay healthy and be thankful for what I have, not what was and what was lost. In a weird way I think resolutions make me feel worthless if I don't attain them. Maybe more of a George Costanza approach....just lower the expectations and maybe little victories will be more satisfying.

    Really though...a safe and prosperous Happy New Year to everyone.

    I'm happy to be alive... I mean, any day you wake up is a good day, right?

    2016: continue raising Kid #2, she'll be 18 next August. We're shooting the rapids now, "My little girl" is long, long in the past. So that's a challenge and a major source of stress. Which leads to alcohol use. Which contains calories. So I need to trip up my schedule of starting to drink about 4:30 and either eat something or have some kind of dairy product, which seems to screw up my regularly scheduled get-off schedule.

    Lose weight, drink less, don't let Kid #2 get under my skin... that's about it, really. "Accepting life and what it brings"... Wait for death. Hopefully another five-ten-fifteen years. Enjoy the ride.

    Eek. Some positivity in there, but a lot of negative. I hope you find peace.
