Pop Culture New Year’s Resolutions

Happy New Year! I can’t believe it’s almost been two years since the Covid pandemic. It feels like we have accomplished so much and so little at the same time. I’m looking forward to 2022 and all the adventures waiting to be had. As each new year feels like a new beginning, I wanted to write out my New Year’s Resolutions.

Watch at least 3 different Anime Series (by EOY)

A few months ago, I purchased an ongoing Funimation subscription that I have barely used. Anime is something I want to dive more into. For this goal, I want to watch at least three different Anime series. I will probably start with a more popular series such as My Hero Academia or Demon Slayer to at least get an idea of what I like before diving into other anime.

Start Watching Mighty Nein Critical Role’s Second Campaign

I’m on Critical Role’s first campaign, Vox Machina. I’m almost halfway through. I hope to finish Vox Machina this year and move into their second campaign, Mighty Nein. My husband bought me Critical Role merch for Christmas this past year, and this included a comfy Mighty Nein sweater. I want to wear it with pride of having at least seen one episode versus wearing it and not being familiar with the setting.

Attend an Out of State Convention I Have Never Been to Before (excluding: Gen Con, C2E2, and Planet Comic Con)

I love traveling for a convention. It’s a perfect trip because I can explore a new city and go to a convention. I have a few ideas of which cons I would like to attend depending on if the dates work out for me to go.

  • Emerald City Comic Con (Seattle, WA) August 18th through the 22nd
  • Rose Comic Con (Portland, OR) September 9th through the 12th
  • Baltimore Comic Con (Baltimore, MD) October 28th through the 30th
  • New York Comic Con (New York, NY) October 6th through the 9th
  • Phoenix Fan Fusion (Phoenix, AZ) May 27th through the 29th

I’m hoping to attend Emerald City for sure, and with Phoenix Fan Fusion being Memorial Day Weekend, that could be another convention I could potentially make it to.

Play and Complete 4 Different PS4 or Console Games (includes: Nintendo Switch, Xbox etc).

I have a few games lined up to play this year. I’m currently playing through Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy which so far is pretty fun. Additionally, I have Far Cry 4 waiting to be played. I’m also behind in Life is Strange too, so I’m hoping to play through that series sometime this year as well.

Play through Marvel’s Spider-Man on a Tougher Difficulty

My final resolution for this year is to re-play Marvel’s Spider-Man on a tougher difficulty. The sequel comes out in 2023, so I want to have a fresh play-through in my head before the sequel is released.

I’m ambitious for 2022. I have been trying to be better about my time management, so I think I can fit everything in for this year. Let me know what your pop culture New Year’s Resolutions are in the comments section below.

  1. After years of setting goals for movies, reading, and games, and letting those goals sometimes overtake my enjoyment, (I can get a bit obsessive about things) my resolution for 2022 is to not have a goal this year and just get back to enjoying things for the sake of enjoyment.

    Good luck with your goals and have fun. I do hope COVID cools a bit and you can make your conventions, I miss going to conventions.
