Thanks Mad pharmacist and Lukas listening to audio book is really a good ideaxD don't worry I only read self development book on bus. For draiwng guide books I will probably read them at home.

Thank you T! I think i have almost overcome the problem with gaming and what challenge I am facing is something even bigger. But I won't lose hope!

Day 34( challenge day 7)

Huh I nearly did nothing today. I just watched an animation film and messed around in the house. I have presentation tmr and I didnt work on it the whole day. Instead I keep checking messages and getting lost. I realised how important it is to avoid staying in the house or else I would definitely become lazy. At least I should go to the self study room near my apartment if I really don't want to go to school, although it is weird to do drawing project in that place. Just dont stay at home.

And I should have plan the day. I should plan on what I suppose to do each hour. today I desired to just watch aniation for 2 hours then head back to work straightly. Sadly it expanded to 4 hours followed by several hours of mindless browsing. I read a post from another quitter about how to plan the day and I think it will be useful to me.

Also, I realised myself become distracted after some passive entertainment (eg. Reading comics, watching animation). They are so much fun and I think I should at least read / watch some of those to be familiar with them as I decided to major in similar subjects next year. But I have cravings for watching more and more once I start watching then I may possibly ended up with doing nothing else. I was quite disturbed.

Daily mission: just don't mention it

Things I am grateful for:

-the only thing I did is to plan my winter quarter break! I have designed some effective training and figured out how to implement them. And my accountability partner is super heartwarming to give me detailed and structured suggestions and recommendations!

Day 35&36 (challenge day 9)

I went to extra classes outside school again and I realised myself was improving! I also considered whether I should study abroad as all of my friends are going next year and they also wanted me to go with them! I am very grateful that my accountability partner are helping me too!

I would go for it! Friends which are not closed-minded and open for new places, are the ones worth stick with. Besides, I approve what Reno said above.

Good luck

Day 37(challenge day 10)

today i had strong urge of watching animation when I was about to work - but I survived after 30minutes of struggling! Then I finished my work on time and went to bed! The thing I did was to do no nothing instead or find something to eat haha

I'm happy to see that my advice works!

And about holiday - that's the best time for detox. Because you're not interrupted in your changes and have maximum of discipline to focus on your new life! :)

Day 41~42 (challenge day 2)

Oh wow my friends are going to make their own board game called"enchanted woods" and I am responsible for designing the characters!! I think that's a extremely reasonable purpose for me to work hard during this holiday! Actually  I trained at least 5 hour a day as I attended the online drawing group. And I am going to design my first character today! And yesterday I went to my friend's house and he teached me basic operations about Maya. I am so excited.

Day 45 

everything is still fine except I lost my stylus:S I will try to find it once I get home. I don't know whether I can post my ceation of the characters online but if I can I will do so^_^.

When I was creating my own character I really felt my improvement in drawing and I rarely had this feeling when I was high school. I was grateful to have the opportunity to train effectively!

Also I have fewer cravings now. I felt extremely satisfied once I did effectively trained (for drawing) and I didnt need any other entertainment anymore.

Day 54 (2-12-2016)

ok after few days of training I made several drafts about the characters lol.

they will surely be refined or redrawn so I can post it here~

In fact I think that the training provided by my friends from Internet is so useful that I don't want to go to art school anymore orz. And I am extremely reluctant to pay the tuition fee.
