    Hello!
    Today was a good day. After a weekend of resting mathematic and exercise felt refreshing and solid. This week is mostly studying, training and working until the weekend. The best moment of today was training Bjj.
    Life is rolling well.

    Hello Good old GameQuitters!
    I've been living my life as usual. Spending time with my relatives, studying maths and physics and training martial arts. 
    Today was a weird day. One of the reasons was having hard time deciding what to do with a problem regarding a relationship. It felt as if the problem was bothering me all day, but gladly it resolved while I talked about it with my family. I feel about 10 times lighter at the moment. It certainly was the best moment of today.
    My plans are on the go as usual. There has been some inconsistency with my training because of the asbestosis case in my gym. As those problems are managed I'll be able to further consolidate my old habits.
    Today I'm grateful for:

    Hello!
    Today was a good day! I studied physics, worked and finished Mikhail Bulgakov's The Master and Margarita. The best moment of today was having a nice conversation with my employer.
    I've been going through some messy relationship-related stuff today. It is draining but also very good to get over with.

    Hello!
    A good day. I worked and cooked and planned the upcoming week. I've felt pretty tired recently. It's probably due to lots of physical work and somewhat random sleep schedule. I'm working on it. The best moment of today was dining with my family.

    Hello!
    Today was a good day. I worked during the day and met my friends in the evening. I thought that work was going to be rough, but it ended up being much better than I expected. The best moment of today was probably joking with friends and listening to classical music with my father.

    Hello!
    Today was a great day. I've taken it easy, planned my upcoming two months, checking my overall goals and spent time with friends. The best moment of today was putting my goals, planned actions and schedule in line. It was also great to share moments with friends.

    Hello!
    Today has been an okay day. I've studied maths, played volleyball and worked. I've been very physically active recently. It's good, but I feel my body is craving for some rest. Going to take the next few days a bit easier. Today I applied for university; at the moment I've got Aalto, a revered science university, on my scope. The best moment of today was dining with friends.
    As plenty of goals got completed due to the end of the finals I've been hustling a bit with plenty of random stuff. I feel like I need to define my goals a bit more tomorrow. It's good to do a little check in with all that's going on.

    Hello!
    Today has been a good day. I've studied psych and German (boy is it rusty ). I also trained Muay Thai for the first time which was fun. It's an agile and pleasant way to do sports. It's cool to try out different forms of martial arts as well. For the rest of the day I've managed some basic stuff, also checked the requirements for the uni I'm applying to. The requirements are high, but I'm hoping to match them. The best moment of today was meeting many friends at the gym.
    Today I'm grateful for:

    Hello!
    Today has been an okay day. I've got plenty of miscellaneous maintenance managed. I've cleaned, adjusted my bike and worked out. The best moment of today was being able to discharge my energy by doing sports.
    I'm feeling I'm lacking direction at the moment. After the finals are over and Bjj is on a forced break I need to find new supplementary activities. Well I'm going to start studying German and psychology tomorrow and go to a nearby gym. It takes a bit of time to get adjusted to these changes. I don't still want to stop moving, because I feel like I function best when I'm engaged with my everyday. I even rest better when there are small goals to go after and create a sense of meaning. Time, effort and planning. That's the way forward for now.

    Hello!
    I'm back from a voyage to Sweden. We senior students celebrated the end of high school together. Today I've been working on a spring cleaning and doing a rather long work day. The best moment of today was the feeling of having summer tires under my bike. It's like switching from crawling to running.
    I've been more inactive in these forums than usual. It's partly due to the fact that I feel my posts getting repetitive and somewhat lacking of content. I will probably decrease the amount of posts here. Gaming was a hard addiction to beat, but now as my problems have progressed it's harder to fit them in this scene. I still feel like writing a post out here every once in a while is a good habit. It feels great to share stories of success and receive tips on how to get better.
    For now I want my goals in check. The next couple of days are good for it. An unexpected event happened at my Bjj gym. There was apparently asbestosis somewhere and they've had to close for the time being. This is something I've got to figure out since Bjj is an essential pillar of my well-being. If it happens that the gym is closed for more than two weeks I could take up Thai boxing. If less than that gym would probably be all right as well.
    Alongside Bjj I must work on maintaining healthy relationships. Having good time with friends is important. Now that most of my friends have excess time I can easily schedule something. Maybe a Catan/Dominion-night. Maybe bathing together in Sauna. Movies, Badminton, Chess, Football, playing music together; there are plenty of possibilities.
    As I've now completed my studying goals for the finals there is also space for studying. I feel like studying the psych essentials could be a good start. I find psychology very interesting. Studying it would also be a great enhancement for my general knowledge. Another possible area which I'm looking forward to improve is my German. I'm going to InterRail next summer so being able to speak German with people would be awesome. I've studied it for 7 years, but have not used it in three. Maybe it's time to refresh those memories. As I've studied languages I feel like I've got a pretty good grasp on what is required to improve on them. The last subject is philosophy, but I feel that for now I'll let it rest a bit.
    Aside those There are a few minor things to be worked at. And also taking it easy for I've worked hard the past three months.
    It's surprisingly enjoyable to write this. GameQuitters-community is a great place to grow and open one's thoughts.

    Hello!
    Today has been a nice day. I've rested, contemplated my further studies and worked. I feel like I need to take it a bit easier now just to make sure I'm able to heal from the stress and work I did during the finals. The best moment of today was having a good call with my Uncle Paul.
    I've been pondering the choice between universities. Today I got awesome advice from two person I regard very successful. It wasn't what I first expected to hear but in the end it made a sense and I feel like I'm better off doing my choices now.
    But for now resting is the best choice. Good Night, Sleep Tight!

    Hello!
    Today was a nice day. I've read, relaxed, worked and met my friends. It was awesome to get back to work after a while. Cycling in the sunny weather sparked my mood. The best moment of today was either reflecting, being with friends or working.
    I got new ideas about what I want to study further on. I'm trending towards international business, which to me sounds exciting. We'll see I'll have to make a couple phone calls regarding it tomorrow.
    All in all a good day.

    Hello!
    Math finals up tomorrow! I've been studying lot and had plenty of fun with mathematics. I find studying maths a lot less straining than studying many other subjects. The best moment of today was joking around at a funny logics exercise.
    I guess my summer holidays begin tomorrow. Phew, It's weird getting to this point.
