Welcome 2013...

...even though December 21, 2012 was kind of a bust. ;) I hope everyone had a great holiday, and that Zombie Santa brought everyone goodies. I got a trucking warehouse built-up that adds to my growing collection of buildings for my All Things Zombie games. I just need a church and a police dept. and I'm all set. I also got some of the ThinkGeek zombie army men, but alas they're closer to 30mm and so are pretty useless for my 20mm gaming. Oh well!

I'm terrible at New Year's Resolutions, but I'll try the following:

1. Do more writing, both on the THR Journal and non-Zombie stuff. I've got a gig with Flying Buffalo that I hope will bring some much-needed exposure in 2013 as well as someday seeing Victorious! by Troll Lord Games see print.

2. More zombie gaming. I've got tons of stuff now, so I have less excuse for only having 7 games total under my belt, with 5 posted. Granted FFO threw me for a loop at the end of this year but that's no excuse. More will happen!

3. Comment more on fellow Zombie Blogger's blogs. I do my best, but most Spam filter systems (ie "Prove you're not a Robot") wreak havoc with my screen reader but I will try more often. There are some great blogs out there with fine Battle Reports, I'll just try to comment on them....as best I can.

4. (Non-Internet) Finish my PhD within the next year, year and a half at most. My thesis is published, and is unique enough I think I can expand it to fill the dissertation requirement.

...Now, we'll see how long these resolutions last! LOL!

Hey good luck with your resolutions. More Batreps! Hope you qualify also, what discpline are you into. I got my PhD a couple of years ago. Never again!!! Very hard time consuming and lonely. Take care and have a good new year.

This all sounds like a good plan, so stick to it! At least to the last one, future doctor Chow!

Best wishes for 2013 and good luck in keeping your resolutions.

As Brummiw said, ditch the Captcha crap on your comments page. It is such a pain in the arse. I am not a fecking robot!

Thanks all, damn! I didn't realize the setting was on over here! I'll go fix that forthwith.

Lrqan, mine is history; specifically Anglo-American-German naval arms race prior to WWI. I *should* have had my PhD 2 years ago, but I ran into some difficulties with Academia. Heck with Mos Eisley, only in Academia will you "...never find a more wretched hive of scum and villany! We must be cautious."

I wasn't. so had to get a second MA degree...which finished this Dec. So, on to PhD (again)!
