Brickset Bonus Ball Bonanza - Matt89190 Edition

Given that we've not had one of these since last decade, I thought I'd have a go at hosting (apologies if the thread's in the wrong place or I was meant to speak to someone first!).

Up for grabs is the throwback Obi-Wan poly as well as a few other bits and bobs.

The question: what is your realistic New Year's resolution? - ie something you genuinely believe you are likely to have achieved by the end of 2020. Mine is to finally clear out the shed (exciting, I know).

Good luck everyone!

    Thank you for hosting! It's a shame these threads have dried up recently, I would run some if I had more stuff suitable for prizes. 

    My resolution, I started running last year and I want to complete a half marathon this year. I've signed up for one late in the year so I have a target and a deadline!

    I want to get my LEGO sorted. I didn't do it as a kid, and I think we all know what that can be like...(I don't need to play since you're in the UK, and I don't want to incur insane shipping, just sharing)

    Thanks for hosting! 

    I have a few: 

    Lose 15lbs. I had accomplished this goal in 2019...and then gained it back. New year, new strategy. Definitely going to happen!

    Sort and organize my LEGO collection. 

    Start modifying my Winter Village to the MILS system.

    So I heard some advice that you should make a resolution to ADD something to your life rather than try to stop something. So I've made a goal to always have a spare bag in my purse to try to keep the plastic bags at bay. Too bad I don't own one large enough for the largest LEGO sets!

    Don't really make resolutions as it's far too easy to break them.

    The closest I've got are realistic plans for this year.

    They are to finish at least one of the four Bricklink projects I currently have on the go and to not start any others until they are all done and to make time to enjoy my hobby by building stuff instead of just collecting it.

    Thanks for hosting.

    Thanks for hosting this.
    I don't really do New Year's resolutions since they never stick for me but at some point I want to get a MOC completed enough to actually bring to a show. Been in a LUG for three-plus years and feel a bit of a fraud without contributing anything.
    There's also the ongoing sorting struggle but that's eternal.

    Have my own LEGO room prepared in our new home!
  • PJ76ukPJ76uk Member Posts: 974
    To finally sort all my loose bricks from the many (hundreds!) of built and disassembled sets (rather than displayed) so I can see what I have and not have to keep buying new parts everytime I want to MOC!

    Curb spending...
  • BrickByBrickBrickByBrick Member Posts: 748
    My goal is to finish cleaning and sort all the bulk brick that I have. I've been putting it off forever.
  • eggsheneggshen Member Posts: 602
    Thanks for hosting! My goal is to finally finish the Terran missions of Star Craft 2. Oh, and completely clean my garage, top to bottom. 
  • Mr_CrossMr_Cross Member Posts: 1,713
    I'd very much like to re-organise my parts collection and sort the mess of boxes full of the chaos I create whenever I make mocs and don't have time to properly put everything back away in the correct drawers.

    Thanks for hosting, great prize!
  • panchox1panchox1 Member Posts: 722
    declutter the house, sell off things from older hobbies. make more space for new Lego hobby.
  • LobotLobot Member Posts: 1,030

    Thanks for hosting @Matt89190

    I want to rationalise my collection this year and spend a bit more time building!

  • Addicted2OxygenAddicted2Oxygen Member Posts: 470
    Build the sets that are slowly accreting around my desk, hemming me in. I want the area clear enough to use my VR headset again and try out the Vader VR games. 
  • M_BossM_Boss Member Posts: 258
    Finally finish inventorying my loose Lego parts. I started back in 2017 and am probably 60% of the way through.
  • eMJeeNLeMJeeNL Member Posts: 817
    ^ that, and finally starting my City. Really starting it, not just moving some sets around.
  • CCCCCC Member Posts: 20,556
    Go meat free at least four days per week.
  • COOLEGOCOOLEGO Member Posts: 211
    Thanks for hosting

    Its pretty simple for me Lego related, to not start any new projects until the 6 that I have on the go are either finished or finally given up on.

    Thanks for hosting @Matt89190

    Its a cliche but I would like to shift some weight this year. I’m on track so far!
  • SeijiAmasawaSeijiAmasawa Member Posts: 266
    I’m taking my capstone course this term for my MS degree so that’s (fingers crossed) kinda attainable. This will hopefully lead to a better job with better pay which means I can then afford to pay someone to clean my place. 

    Try to wait for sales when buying Lego.

    Thanks for hosting!
  • BumblepantsBumblepants Member Posts: 7,728
    I need to be more consistent with exercise. It's so difficult to be motivated in winter because I hate the cold

    I need to be more... difficult to be motivated...
    More naps.

    I recently started to play tennis, so I guess one goal is to stop getting beaten by all the old people at my local tennis club.

    1) Pass the CFP certification exam.
    2) Lose some weight
  • bmwlegobmwlego Member Posts: 820
    *Curb LEGO spending
    *Spend more time building
    *Pare down my collection of unbuilt/sealed sets so that I have less stuff in my LEGO room and increase the fung-shui in that room so that I want to be down there building more. 
  • M1J0EM1J0E Member Posts: 644
    Thanks for hosting!

    I can’t say I do much at all with resolutions.  But looking to achieve some career goals here this year with improvements to work.  
  • ReesesPiecesReesesPieces Member Posts: 1,131
    Sadly, limit my lego spending.  
    Thanks for hosting the first of the new decade!
  • kiki180703kiki180703 Member Posts: 1,063
    Finish building the sets in my backlog. It's going to be fun!

    Thanks for hosting!
  • DB361DB361 Member Posts: 299
    Simple one for me this year, to be far better with my money. I'd like to have more available to be able to use for holdays etc, so apart from knuckling down and working hard to get the income up, it's also looking at where I can bring the costs down that's really key.
  • janscjansc Member Posts: 60
    Eat less pork and beef and replace it with chicken and vegetarian replacements. At least be more conscientious about it.

    Expand my veggie garden and get it growing year-round, rather than being just a spring thing..

    I’m going to try to finish several MOCs that are in-progress, exercise a bit more than last year, and overall work on being more content with life (which will involve not visiting the sales thread so often!). Thanks for hosting!
  • BobflipBobflip Member Posts: 728
    Mainly to try and finish more projects than last year, and actually get producing some music again!
  • masterX244masterX244 Member Posts: 536
    None, never had made one
  • J0rgenJ0rgen Member Posts: 602
    Excersise more regularly.
  • CoviCovi Member Posts: 339
    I have two:
    - Convert the attic into two rooms: one for my son and the other one will be my mancave.
    - Lose 10% of my weight

    Both should be realistic but the second one will be the hardest one to pursue.
  • stluxstlux Member Posts: 2,450
    I don't make New Year resolutions, but like many others in this thread, it would be nice to get my spare parts organized. I bought the required trays last year, so this year I might get them filled?

    Thanks for hosting @Matt89190!

    I resolve to not partake in New Years resolutions.

    I recently started to play tennis, so I guess one goal is to stop getting beaten by all the old people at my local tennis club.

    Hello! I have always wanted to learn to play tennis. In Boston, I was always surrounded by the public tennis courts but had no time to learn, and now I have time but there seem to be no public courts. Can you give me tips about starting to learn to play tennis as an adult? equipment, costs, anything? I am exploring different sites for home setup also. I am a beginner but held a racket a couple of times and learn very fast (I am not bragging). Thanks!
  • vanvonfullvanvonfull Member Posts: 273
    This one’s for beginners:

  • TheFewTheFew Member Posts: 1,781
    Mine needs to be build more mocs. I spend ages collecting the parts for builds, then fail to follow through with the actual building.

    This is some fine thread resurrection.  
    Where better to ask for tips about getting into tennis than on a long dead thread on a LEGO forum?
