    다른 뭔가에 빠지면 확실히 더 참기 쉬운 것 같아요 ^^
  5. Day 9 So tired @Mettermrck Thank you so much. wow your rank(?) is now 'unstoppable' @BigPete247 That's cool! I hope you had a great time. @Skaliq 와 항상 여기에 한국어 할 줄 아는 사람은 없겠지 했는데... 신기하네요!
  6. 75 ... Dont lose your 75 days!!
  7. DAY 8 Today was soso. Most days are similar. I really enjoy wikipedia as always. Study - make summary in wikipedia, again and again. Thank you all for encouraging me I wish your journeys go well! P.S : @Skaliq Whoa.... How can you speak Korean? Did you use translator?
  8. DAY 7 It was good. Thank you so much for encouraging me @Mettermrck , @Shine Magical . This week wasn't great as my previous weeks. I want to make the next week better.
  9. DAY 6 I was on a trip, so I didn't leave the post. I really love making Korean wikipedia articles, as there're not many contributors in civil engineering field. It's very interesting to see my(?) articles grow. I study some topics, and then I write articles. As I learned that reciting is a good way to improve my grades, I don't copy the textbook. I write down something with my own words, and then check if my sentences and formulas are correct. So far so good. Less stress.
  10. DAY 2 It was good! Nothing much to say.
  11. DAY 1 I relapsed! Today I just got rest and planned what to do. And I wrote some posts. It's very ridiculous, but I don't care.
  12. I was so pissed off because one of my close person treated me as an addict. The reason was that I procrastinated one little thing which wasn't so urgent. Yeah I'm an addict, but I didn't have to get comfirmation from her. I really did my best during my 2nd attempt, and I think I made small achievements of my own. But she might have thought it wasn't enough. I'm so sorry for not being a perfect person. I became so depressed. So I started playing again for 7 days. It wasn't always fun to play, but I kept playing without eating or taking care of myself. So now, 47 days no gaming, 11 days gaming, 48 days no gaming, and 7 days gaming again. I've learned something useful during this journey, but I think there are much more to discover. Some useful tips to control my emotion. Productivity of my life has improved quite well but there are some vulnerable moments that I need to react effectively. I feel 90 days are not enough for me to be a better person. I feel like I'm already a loser in my life. I lost another 7 days as I failed to control my emotions. Usually I don't have cravings when there's not much stress, but it's not easy to deal with it when the worst moments come. I don't have a clue what to do. I should react to get rid of the source of stress, but the reality is, I can't murder the person that gives me stress. Is there a practical way to relieve stress and anger? I can only find some advices like, "get some rest", "do meditation", "go travel" and blah blah blah. But it's not easy to even think about those advices when I'm so angry, depressed, and hopeless. I think gaming is a really good way to forget anger and depression. But it's not a right solution. You guys all know that. I just wanna know what you guys do when your worst times come.
  13. DAY 46 It was a great day! 7.5 hours!

    Same situation. Today is 46th, but I don't do a lot different. Only slight change in strategy to deal with my life. I have to spend most of my time on studying or doing few works, so I think maybe, for some people, huge change is not available. But I'm happy right now. I can feel the small changes and little bit of confidence in myself. I think in my case, 90 days are not enough to be a totally different person. I learned that I can only move forward step by step, so it'll take a lot of time to change myself entirely. But don't be disappointed. You would have a different future than mine. Who knows? No one knows the future. Keep it up

    Day 6!

    Practice, practice and practice. That's the best way to improve something.
  16. It's not silly. It's functional! Keep it up!
  17. Hang in there, I hope you get better soon
  18. DAY 45 (WHOA 50% ???!!!!) Despite the 45th day, today was as simple as other ordinary days. I began to make wikipedia documents without copying textbooks. I decided to work on only civil engineering related documents as I don't have much time. Plus, I don't want to be distracted. The reason why I don't copy textbooks is because, I learned that describing some concepts that I've learned without much help is necessary to improve my understandings. I learned it from a TED talk. Of course I review books when I forget something. And of course, I check my writing whether it has a firm source.(It's a rule in wikipedia, writing down a good source) I really enjoy making wikipedia. Especially writing some mathematics formula. LaTeX is so awesome! Tomorrow would be the same I guess. See you tomorrow guys!
  19. DAY 44 My new phone has arrived! I moved and erased some data from my old phone. Time to say good bye... Today was just ok.
  20. I'm sorry to hear your story. Sometimes money is too brutal to us, I guess. I hope you overcome the bad moments.
  21. Hang in there... I hope your debate go well eventually... I don't really have no idea when a partner isn't doing something useful.. There gonna be more good days after this adversity.
  22. DAY 43 It was fine. I didn't study a lot as I watched two educational videos(TED and another) and checked my plans. From the start of July until now, I've been focusing on the quantity of studying. It's not a bad thing. It's necessary to me, but I think I should slightly change my strategy to quantity+quality studying. I learned that 'practice test' is a great thing that smart students do, so I'll do that occasionally. It's a bit exciting. I think it'll take some time to make it as a habit, but still it's worth trying. There were a couple more, so if you want to look at it, please do. 1. Practice test, Retrieval practice 2. Review periodically (KEY : consistent, short study sessions 'overtime') 3. Words → Visuals / Visuals → Words. (Explain to myself without looking at a book) 4. Try to find a concrete real-life example (abstract X)
