Days 26-32: I was busy with homework and dealt with Chi Alpha. No worries... everything is fine. Last Monday, I ordered a journal that is all-colorful (ew... no homo-related stuff in it, looks professional and mature) and an organizer structure I needed from the blog I subscribed to. Both are of Amazon! I am saving it as rewards for one last end-of-school-year milestone once when it enters my house. I am not opening it unless I am done with all the hard work I did for so long. My vocal lesson was delayed until Friday due to the Memorial Day holiday. I will get back to schedule this upcoming week. No gaming for me. Last week, I have seen a YouTube video again due to the live action remake of Aladdin, which is about let's watch the 3D animated sequel called Son of Aladdin. I know... *shivers*

I can't wait to write something inside during the gap year hopefully. For now, I am keeping it in my ever-growing 100% blank journal collection.

How should I get rid of the unneccessary habit?

Order Update Time: Due to the lack of availability, Amazon cancelled the gold organizing structure for journals recommended by The Perpetual Page-Turner and instead it shipped off the black candle warmer as of this morning. Weird!

Days 33-45: I survived what remains the MOST for spring term and again no gaming for me... at around halfway to 90 days, I am done with school so I can have a nice aloha for the rest of the afternoon since finals in the first half is okay and the other half feels rushed. I felt pampered for hours being in the park outside. Fun! 🍍🍍🍍🍍

We played "relay" games after late lunch and heard the testimonies of three people before they get baptized. One of them used to be a game addict, the other had pain in the back while having the rough period of life, and another used to be angry. Now they had decided to believe on the Lord Jesus through the vows of saying "I do." We laid the hands on them in prayer and they go into the lake while the kids aren't being aware of what is happening without knowing what kinds of wrongdoing they will bear if the "buried sins" affect the young swimmers in the distance (it might be a few at a time, but I am not too sure). I don't want them to have a bad influence, but I hope they'll follow my example of discernment between right and wrong. After the baptism ceremony, I waited to see if I can have arrangements for a way back. My dad picked me up and I took the bus home. What a long day...

Day 46: I am done with The Remnant! I am all caught up for now and had spent time with family. It is a nice, relaxing day to be at home all day. No outing. Wah-wah... I am doing my research for my personal retreat now since it is an impossible mountain I could overcome. Unexpectedly, I saw my sister play Pokemon X and Y on her laptop. It is so painful to watch, I keep having flashbacks to the days of Pokemon Black and White back in early high school (c. 2010-12) while bingereading the entire Percy Jackson OG series (2005-09). I reminiscence all the nostalgia from seven years ago as a 16-year old bookworm while The Broke and the Bookish (I've encountered it a year later) was still running at the time. Now it came to pass that I was graduating from college in six days, this will be three times longer than I did during the day before and the day of my high school graduation in 2014 (see, that is respectively June 12 and 13).

What to Read Next? Saga Volumes 8 and 9

Day 47: We had celebrated Father's Day! 1. I attended the main service. 2. We had lunch, root beer on tap, and we saw Hot Wheels racing. 3. We chilled out at home. 4. We went out to dinner at The Ranch Drive-In. 5. We went around the mini-beach for several laps.

Day 48: Today, I had my last day of school and pending commencement on Friday. What a long day it has been for me... *sigh* nothing new underneath a sun... other than that, a good day on campus. I don't know what to do next, but still... no homework for me FINALLY! Now, I have some catching up time to work on for the next less than two weeks.

IMPORTANT AND URGENT: NONE! (all finished, now what?) IMPORTANT BUT NOT URGENT: 100 Days of Thanks (99% complete), The Science of the Christian Life (95% complete), Project Exodus (3/20 complete), and my 52-week Bible reading plan (>70% complete) URGENT BUT NOT IMPORTANT: my 5.5-year old blog NEITHER IMPORTANT NOR URGENT: Time Bomb: an old-school fanfic from 2013-14 (will work more on chapter 21 after the detox period sometime during the gap year)

What to Read Next? Saga Volume 8 (hopefully starting tomorrow, volume 9 postponed due to commencement); Arms From the Sea (right after commencement if I am still waiting for volume 9 of Saga)

Day 49: Yesterday, I didn't get out of the house until 3pm. I came to the library and borrowed the one item I was looking forward to reading. Please see cover below if you are interested, but wait there is more... I went to the farmer's market and they didn't have any fresh grapes. You can only buy them if they are in the form of alcohol. If you are abstaining from drinking during your detox from video games, I suggest that you skip it. I drank 2 samples of red wine. 1 is bittersweet and the other is a bit raw. I cannot take something unsafe for public transit. Sad! Instead, I headed to the grocery shop and got grape juice plus a bunchful of grapes for cheap. Then I saw my old friend from government school again while I was on the way out of the mall. And then I just headed home my dad said. It was a bit of the interruption throughout the day, but it is fun...

Day 50: I knew I was coming to the point of getting into catching up time, but I am almost done with two things I started during the season of passion from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday. 1. 100 Days of Thanks (that started on March 6th) and 2. The Science of the Christian Life (that started right after Easter service). The good news: After weeks of waiting, I am finally accomplished with the Whitworthian shenenigans that was originally aired over spring semester of 2019 for my sister who is 4 years younger than me. The last time I checked in with the chapel podcast, I took notes over what they had done over my sister's first semester there near the beginning of my Christmas break 2018. The first series was Redefining the Law and the other was Reading the Bible with Jesus. In my campus over the past spring term, we sometimes on occasion crammed #MeToo down our throats while in reality focused more on the Holy Spirit. I have enjoyed every last minute spent with the XA (Chi Alpha) ministry, but it was worth it. I am glad to be a better person today. I cannot wait to show the world how proud I am once when I receive the rolled-up paper with a ribbon in the middle. At the end of the day, it was time for me to wait a few more hours before it gets really interesting. I am super excited to celebrate my acheivements! 🙂🎊
