  1. Yesterday I was quite vague about my project for the next 30 days. Waking up this morning, I have decided to make it social skills. I don't have a problem making music, I do that most days - but holding a conversation is something I don't have much of a clue about, and I would like to put definite time in to improving that. Ideas for improving confidence in social skills: Say hi to strangers 3 times a day Hold at least 1 conversation every day Be a starter of conversations - don't wait to be spoken to Say whatever comes to your mind, don't think about it too much. Be expressive in your tone of voice and delivery Spend time every day reading about this skill Ahhh that feels better.
  2. Great, a morning person! Nothing beats the sunrise.
  3. Your first entry was very reader friendly could definitely relate to when feeling down and too easy to fall into creature comforts, which actually make things worse. Hope this will be supportive for you and you can get going on your exams.
  4. thank you for your comments!!! oh I thought of another project to work on - social skills! I read a post somewhere in the forum about social skills and someone said to say "hi" 3 times a day to strangers. I thought, that sounds fun! Well, I only managed that twice today. But It felt good to be friendly! Even though they seemed a bit confused. One was a lady and another was an elderly lady on the bus. I was smiling a lot.
  5. THE LIST OF MAGICAL DREAMS a list of stuff I think would be fun to do1. achieve world peace 2. make 50 albums in my lifetime. If I;m lucky enough to live for 50 more years that's 1 a year??!!!! 3. write a screenplay 4. change my name legally, more than once 5. become fluent in French… and what the hey Esperanto, Portugese, Arabic, Chinese and Swahili (Jambo bwana!!) 6. create a travelling exhibit of a hundred sun paintings 7. construct an entertaining open mic show performance thing 8. open up a market stall at a market selling exotic goods 9. visit a rainforest 10. see a blue whale in real life A project to work on for next 30 days: music album materials----- I'm always working on this though. Getting fitter. I'm starting with 30 sit-ups, 30 press ups a day (chunks of 10). and going for a late night jog (jogging on purpose?!?!! this is madness) DAY 2 I bought a whiteboard!!! And wrote 18,206 on it. How many days I have left til I die, if I'm lucky!!! ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I also bought a book called "Mindfulness for Compassionate Living" because I thought it looked cool. It's all about self-compassion which I could do with a bit more I think. Got a couple hours done in Cubase today. But I think I may need to find a couple more 'unwinding activities' for when I don't feel as motivated. Reading a book's good enough for now I guess. Also I'm beginning to think I should do the Respawn thing, for some reason I'm doing the Challenge and trying 90 days detox at the same time!?!? oh well, see how it goes i guess. oh seeing as this is a journal for world peace i will try to write an ode to world peace every day to fill up some time now hehe World peace Romeo, where art thou!!!!!!!!!! Open the curtains and take a bow. Tell us the WARS were just a show It's time for them to go, go, go!!! The guns and the bombs were very dramatic But a planet in love's far more cinematic!!!!!! The actors pretended to hate so well…. Will they ever put down this script from hell???? I know we'll find you some day, somehow, OH! World peace Romeo, where art thou!!!!!! I also recorded it in a stupid voice because what the heck!!!!!! it's practice for ……. scaring people away!! <iframe width="100%" height="166" scrolling="no" frameborder="no" src="https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/263993511&amp;color=00cc11&amp;auto_play=false&amp;hide_related=false&amp;show_comments=true&amp;show_user=true&amp;show_reposts=false"></iframe>
  6. making music is like my favourite thing. I use cubase, but wow I never heard of that LMMS program before, it looks incredible to be free!!
  7. Really pleased to read that Ducky!! nice one
  8. Hey peeps. I am doing the gamequitters Challenge thing and the first challenge today was to make a journal and write a letter to me, and answer some questions. I would like to add that it's my intention not just to get rid of one smelly habit, games, because I know from past experience I just waste time on other things like internet --- I feel it's all part of one big life-procrastination-syndrome. I want to use free time on creative activities and learning activities and stuff!! Dear Me, I write to you today to inform you of my excellent & marvellous decision to move on from Game World. I've felt the pains of lag when gaming before, but right now I feel I've got some serious lag.... in life!!! All my friends from my school group are married, some with kids and all living independently. (Not that I want to get married any time soon but I would like to be independent!) Five years have passed since I graduated and I've barely anything to show for it. It's time to stop using games and other distractions like internet browsing to escape from making big decisions!! I really want to move out, get involved in creative communities and start sharing and participating with the world. You better watch out OLD me - NEW me's in town now bucko!!!!!!!! I'm coming for you!!!!mwahahahaaaaaaa Yours Sincerely, faithfully and respectfully, NEW Me P.S. Have a great day ------ Right now, I think people could perceive me as being a combination of irresponsible, incapable, lazy, basically slightly useless.... BUT mostly harmless, maybe 'nice'. I'd like to be perceived as a warm, friendly, creative, uplifting person who isn't afraid to be different and slightly eccentric!!!! 3 behaviours/characteristics to change - overly comfort-seeking - dull conversation manner - not acting on my ideas I have 18,207 days left to live!!! estimated date of death: Thursday, 18 March 2066 I realized sometime halfway through your 27th year you pass the 10,000 days alive mark!!!!! Now THAT'S a landmark worth celebrating - why don't we celebrate landmarks like that, 5,000 days, 10,000 days, etc. they should be really special days as well as birthdays anything for more cake!!! The Simon Sinek video, "How Great Leaders Inspire Action" was really good. One of the best TED talks I've seen. It reminded me of a quote I can't remember, something like, if you have a purpose, beliefs, principles, 99% of all your decisions are already made. I feel right now I'm lacking the courage & conviction to follow my beliefs! DAY 1 --------- Deleted Steam, but that's the easy part for me. I've done that lots of times--- challenge is keeping it uninstalled! Also managed to keep internet surfing to a minimum, mostly spending time here and on Habitica. I filled most of my computer time making music in Cubase which is good, that's what I want to do most of. I'm using RescueTime to see what I spend most time on the computer. Good start, think I will go to bed early so I don't fall into the usual late night distract-a-thon!!
  9. Love the pictures of the hippie girl and the space crocodile! Did you do them in a day? I really like the style of your art.
  10. Hi Sashiku. I've really enjoyed following your story and journal so far. It sounds like you're on a low at the moment - I just want you to know that whatever happens, and whatever you choose to do, we will all support you on your journey!!! I just know that you're going to have an incredible journey! I also love creating stuff!!!! I so enjoyed checking out your art in your "Sashi's Art" thread. I really like your style, and hopefully you'll have more time to do it without games! By the way, I also use Habitica and don't see a problem with it, because it's not addictive to me and actually helps me be more productive.
  11. Hi Nick, thanks for the advice! I think I will start a journal, it'll be helpful to track my progress. I'm really excited to begin. See you around!
  12. That's true Dannigan - The Matrix is one of my favourite movies and it makes a really good analogy for waking up to your life and taking control of it! Wait a sec, if gaming is the Matrix then does that mean… Cam is Morpheus?!!
  13. "people don't remember what you do for them but they do remember how you make them feel" what a fantastic tip, it's very helpful. all my favourite people I can remember have been very warm people, very very friendly. it doesn't matter what they did in life, their appearance or anything, what made them stick out to me is their warm personalities and yes, how they made me feel! this is important to me because i think i present quite a cold, neutral facade. i definitely feel i am lacking in social skills department and its something i want to work on a lot!!
  14. Hello people of Earth!!!! I want to get rid of this stinky gaming habit - I managed to quit games for a while a few years ago (because they made me feel bad afterwards), but I spent so many hours just watching people play games on Youtube instead! So mindless internet browsing must also die!!! The past year I've done a lot of installing/uninstalling games x infinity. Today it was the middle of the day, just done playing an hour of games and I was like - this is stupid!!!! It's time to put the mouse down, pull my socks up and march confidently into the sunset of amazingness ___((O))___ Let's do this
