early resolutions

I know I know, its only November, we haven't had Thanksgiving, Christmas or New Years, why am I already making resolutions? simply because I can. and I found this on pinterest:
while I may not be in a quarter life crisis at the moment, sometimes I wonder :-P
Reasoning pro:  a lot of these were already on my "to-read" list, 2012 I set the goal of 30 books without starting in January
Reasoning con: next spring will be my first semester as a full time student since 2008, and I feel like I don't have time as a part time student.
