We're all familiar with the usual New Year's resolutions: lose weight, get in shape, quit smoking, cut down on drinking, etc. And while all of those are good intentions, there are some unusual resolutions people can make.

Here are a few unusual New Year's resolutions, according to realbuzz.com:

"Get your photo taken in five interesting places

If you’ve got the travel bug and want to see a bit more of the world, why not make it a New Year’s resolution to visit five interesting places you’ve always wanted to see?

Make a new friend a month

Fact: friends are great for your health, and the more you have of them the better. So, why not make it a New Year’s resolution to start collecting them? To expand your social circle, try to make one new friend a month by making a conscious effort to attend more social events, chat to strangers and get introductions to friends of friends

Try a new food each week

Rather than cutting out foods from your diet as with so many New Year’s resolutions, opt to add more foods in to your diet next year instead (bonus points if they’re green!).

Do something nice for others every day

Many of our resolutions (these included) are inwardly focused, concentrating on ways to become thinner, healthier, wealthier people. Next year, why not make a resolution to focus outwards instead and help make the world a better place."
