    I have made two resolutions this new year. The first resolution is to get in better shape. I plan to exercise more regularly than last year. I want to exercise five days a week instead of just two or three days a week. Also, I plan to eat more homecooked meals instead of eating mostly at restaurants. The second resolution is to improve my knowledge of my hobby, music composition and production. I have purchased new videos and have arranged a tutor for private lessons once a week. My goal this year for my hobby is to write (and hopefully sell) several electronic music tracks.

    I have made two resolutions this new year. The first resolution is to lose my weight and to get in shape. I went to the gym to exercise last year. But, I didn’t go to the gym regularly because of studying. Even I gained more weight:(. I am going to exercise everyday by using my treadmill. Also, I plan to controll dietary and lifestyle. The second resolution is to study english, toeic and toeic speaking. I need a high grade for graduation and getting a job. I am going to have a test once a month after listening to english lectures through EBS. I hope stick to my resolutions to the end.

    In this new Year, I have made two resolutions. The First resoultion is to be a patience or stable person. I realized that hastiness is not good for me in the last year. Hastiness affect many parts of my life, such as friendship , relation of family. So, I decide to change my thingking mind. Another resolution is to reduce drinking alchoal. I drank an alchoal a 2-3 times in a week consequently I missed precious experiences or my health in the last year. If I want to be a successful person, I must reduce alchoal. Reducing alchoal will give many things to me. I’ll can be more healthy or be a loose my weight, etc…

    I have made three resolutions this year. The first resolution is to exercise regularly. I plan to go to the gym, at least 4 days a week. With exercising, I’ll be able to get in better shape and be healthy. The second resolution is getting good grades. Since I have never got a chance to get a scholarship, I want to try it in this year. And I believe it will help me get better job in the future. The last resolution is to read a lot. I will be a senior this year, so I think this is my last chance to read many books and get lots of information. I think if I graduate from my university and get a job, I won’t be able to read a lot.
