    Day 117 (42|75) (25/04/19) Thursday Went for a walk at Washpen Falls! It was challenging (in a good way), took around 2 1/2 hours and the views including the waterfall were beautiful 😍

    Hey bro, I’ve had a strong craving like that recently and thinking back to my relapse and how I felt even more empty after playing helped me to deal with it, as well as going for a walk; keeping my mind occupied and process how I’m feeling and rationalising my thoughts is helpful, because feelings can sometimes influence your brain to making unwise decisions. Also, asking yourself the WHY, as in why are you feeling this strong craving can be helpful too. You’re doing really well to not give in! Hang in there mate, take it one step at a time 😊

    Day 116 (42|74) (24/04/19) Wednesday I found the 2 missing pieces and all I had to do was swap the 2 pieces the didn't fit around pepega. So it's finally completed it and it looks PRETTY NICE~~~

    Day 115 (42|73) (23/04/19) Tuesday Since Friday after the two hits, my forearm has been sore (wrist flexion and extension is sore) and it has been worse since Sunday I think due to doing set up and pack up. I think it's tennis elbow and I'm giving it a rest. Spent the entire day finishing off the puzzle and... I lost 2 pieces and 2 don't really fit 😞 but eh good enough for me! Now I can start studying hahahahhaha

    Day 114 (42|72) (22/04/19) Monday Worked on the puzzle pretty much all day and then we went out as a family to the LIttle High Eatery for dinner. It's a small but popular food court and it was quite packed tonight because it was a public holiday. I had a Bacon Bros burger (Bernie) and to be honest it felt like I was eating a toastie 😐 it was filling, but for me, it just didn't live up to the hype. Perhaps I gotta try another burger next time.

    Day 113 (42|71) (21/04/19) Sunday He is risen! Where can we find hope that lasts? In Jesus! His resurrection gives us hope even in the darkest of times. Happy Easter everyone 😊

    Day 112 (42|70) (20/04/19) Saturday I started working on a puzzle (1000 pieces OwO) because it recharges me :)) Did that for most of the day and then went bowling in the evening with university friends. We had a few strikes and one guy went past the line and fell over 😂 It was really fun and I had a good time!

    Day 111 (42|69) (19/04/19) Friday Played a lot of tennis today, the first one was with one of my mates from interclub. We played a set I was so surprised that I manage to play at the same level as I did over a year ago! Thanks God! I had an opportunity to have a spiritual conversation because he said, 'I noticed that you've become quite religious' and I was so surprised I talked about how it gave me a new purpose in life and then he said that his view of life was optimistic nihilism he talked about his fascination with space and how we're so insignificant and I was thinking of how to use that to transition to talking about how God and how he loves us even though we are so insignificant but then I couldn't think of anything smooth and then the convo ended there... I should've just went straight in, instead of trying to get a smooth transition, just like this one time on Project where my partner went straight and that eventually lead to the person praying to receive Christ! But I gotta take what I've learned and move on from it. The next hit was with two of my Christian bros, Renzo and Connor, and I got to kind of coach them which was really cool and quite an honor. I've realized that I can quite easily enjoy sport no matter the ability of the other player/team until it becomes an official match/competition, then the pressure to perform kicks in. Like on day 74, that was competitive Ultimate Frisbee and I didn't enjoy it, but I enjoyed playing badminton casually (day 104) and tennis today, both intense and not-so-intense versions. Thankfully no one is making me play competitively anymore~~😄

    Day 110 (42|68) (18/04/19) Thursday Played some tennis with a bro from church and it was cool having a casual hit around and talking about the Bible and what we've been up to! Also filled in at work and it was the perfect amount of busyness, so poggg. In regards with my degree, instead of thinking of whether I see myself doing engineering, I should be asking if I am willing to do it; if it is God's will that He wants me to do engineering. This, in fact, applies to ALL aspects of life! Obedience to God

    Day 107 (42|65) (15/04/19) Monday This past week has been tough because I have had nothing planned so gaming has been rearing its ugly head in the form of youtube videos and watching them makes me want to play it. I want to click heads and pop off. But I think back to my relapse and how empty it felt and the time wasted and then I don't want to play it. But it's hard fighting against it. It's draining. I have to take afternoon naps and I don't have the energy to talk, text or writing in my journal 😞 But also I have not been spending as much time with God... if I do then God willing the desires of gaming will be squashed by the joy of following Christ!

    Day 106 (42|64) (14/04/19) Sunday My parents are wanting to find a church that has a Chinese service. So we went to one which we thought was that because one of their friends used to go to it but it was actually English speaking. They referred us to a Chinese church so we'll go to them next week. Their service was mostly worship and prayer whilst my one is mainly a sermon. I went to my church in the evening and we wrapped up our series on Matthew 8-12 and it was really good! I've learned so much about Jesus! I had a really long chat with Jason afterward and it was good to hear his thoughts as well as collect mine as well.

    @goodbill Heya thank you but all glory to God, honestly, He's the one that keeps me going! And thanks for asking! I gotta say, now that it's term break for me and I have nothing planned in my days, it's been so tempting to play and it's been extremely tough trying to fight against it. But I constantly think back to day 42 as well as the bigger picture. It's always a battle, and now it's the hardest it's ever been. I see that you've just started your journal and it's really good that you're so honest about it! At this stage, I've found it quite hard to want to keep posting but it's been good and it's really important to do so, yeah man keep it up and I'll keep praying for you!
