  1. whtev

    go to france and never come back. ever. (really this time)

  2. concerned citizen

    When did "m-side" become okay?

    My resolution is...that's not okay.

  3. hi!

    happy new year, west coast kids!

  4. My Contribution:  

    1. Meet Lydia DePillis.
    2. Woo Lydia DePillis.

    • secret admirer

      Lydia DePillis is a damn hot girl. I should have sat next to her during history of nyc class... sigh..

      • Hey, guess what

        Your secret is out.

        Also, whoever wrote the resolution that appears sixth from last: it’s “cemetery”, not “cemetary”. Sheesh.

        My resolution is to finish more video games. I just play part of most of the games I own, and then I move on to something else and never look back. I mean, God of War II needs to be beaten. Zeus, you dare attempt to kill me??? Oh, it is SO on.

  6. que?

    Why do you need the help of Lydia DePillis to bike across campus? Is she your mother?

  7. Anonymous

    I resolve to give up all my worldly possessions and travel the world doing good deeds for the less fortunate. I will, however, continue to regularly shower and shave, as well as not muttering to myself about crazy shit.

  8. Adding to that

    Force myself to do something outside of New York City once I graduate, at least for a little while, because if I stay here it almost certainly means I will live at home for the rest of my life...rents being what they are, my life being what it is.

  9. Riven

    December is Berlin is not that much fun either. But the music scene is much more alive and the NYE parties less artificial and more fun ^^

  10. omg hipsters

    i just barfed a little in my mouth.

  11. to the bwog editors

    sorry to blemish your gleeful bwog-listing, but these self-indulgent lists compiled from editorial staff submissions should forever remain in your own inboxes. you can do better than these lackluster lists. please spare the rest of us!

  12. edit staff

    lydia is cute, but not hot

  13. i know...

    i know this is spectator, but "116 Things to do at Columbia" is a little fun.
