Leap Day Resolution

Why isn't there such a thing as a Leap Day Resolution? A Resolution that you have to keep for Four Years beginning on February 29.

I've given it a bit of thought and decided to do my first Leap Day Resolution: Simply update something on the main personal project I'm working on (currently Battlesuit of course) every single day. It might be something exceptionally small - a single sentence on the script, or a single line of code - but as long as I did something, it counts.

I think there's a couple of reasons this makes sense. One is Jerry Sienfeld recommends this approach for comedy writing. The other is that Cave Story - which is in my opinion, the Citizen Kane of free games - took four years to complete (though I make no promises to do something even a fraction as awesome as Pixels work!)

And if I fail - which I freely admit I might do - then I'll make a shame post so you can all laugh at me.

So, hopefully next Leap Day Resolution post, I'll have something really cool to show for it. Christ, I'll be 32 then..

Edit: Well, I failed the resolution. Nothing's been going right for me recently.

Sounds interesting, and mine shall be to watch Citizen Kane within 4 years.. I think it might be possible.... It only took a year to watch 26 episodes of James bond, and I am currently aiming to complete watching the IMDB top 250. (Yesterdays list.)

26 Episodes of James Bond? How did you.. Wait..

  • 22 Official EON movies to date from Dr No to Quantum of Solace
  • 2 Non Official Bond movies, being the David Niven Casino Royale comedy and Never Say Never Again
  • The Casino Royale 50s TV adaption

No matter how I look at it, I can only come up with 25, at most :P
