Bookish Update Time: currently reading The 5 Levels of Leadership by John C. Maxwell (I should be done with Level 3 today by now, for I want a break in order to celebrate Banned Books Week with Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman starting tomorrow.)

Order Update Time: weekly tithing until October 6 due to homecoming weekend coming up afterwards and the Q-Tips will arrive by Monday or Tuesday from Walmart (status: pending according to Ontrac)

IMPORTANT AND URGENT: The Science of Well-Being (by far; hopefully, I'll pass the Week 3 quiz today) and clean-up around the house (just barely getting started) IMPORTANT BUT NOT URGENT: Project Exodus (still 3/10 complete; will slowly resume on next Monday (the day my last school was being prayed by all the school prayer advocates out there from a congregation)), my 52-week Bible reading plan (44 weeks and a day down and only 8 weeks and 6 days more to go), Proverbs with an entire family (still 11/31 complete), and the OT/NT walkthrough (still >1/12 accomplished) URGENT BUT NOT IMPORTANT: Time Bomb: an old-school fanfic from 2013-14 (will work more on chapter 21 sometime) and my comic project (currently working on chapter 1 as of right now after introduction and prologue over August) NEITHER IMPORTANT NOR URGENT: my 6-year old blog

Bookish Update Time: The 5 Levels of Leadership by John C. Maxwell (now on hiatus after 3 "Levels"); now reading... Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman (Why? Because it's Banned Books Week right now and I highly endorse the message since 2013. Look it up on Wikipedia or something similar like ALA for lists of challenged and banned books if you're interested and would like to give it a try.)

Order Update Time: weekly tithing until October 6 due to homecoming weekend coming up afterwards and the Q-Tips will arrive by the end of Tuesday from Walmart at the latest (status: still pending according to Ontrac)

IMPORTANT AND URGENT: The Science of Well-Being (YAY! I am on week 5!) and clean-up around the house (just barely getting started) IMPORTANT BUT NOT URGENT: Project Exodus (still 3/10 complete; will slowly resume tomorrow (the day my last school was being prayed by all the school prayer advocates out there from a congregation)), my 52-week Bible reading plan (will do today that now it is meditation period - a good time to catch up besides all the "mind control" B.S.), Proverbs with an entire family (15/31 complete), and the OT/NT walkthrough (still >1/12 accomplished) URGENT BUT NOT IMPORTANT: Time Bomb: an old-school fanfic from 2013-14 (will work more on chapter 21 sometime) and my comic project (currently working on chapter 1 as of right now after introduction and prologue over August) NEITHER IMPORTANT NOR URGENT: my 6-year old blog

Bookish Update Time: The 5 Levels of Leadership by John C. Maxwell (now on hiatus after 3 "Levels"); Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman (now on hiatus after Chapter 1); now reading... Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Rip Van Winkle, and Golden Dreams by Washington Irving but DUMBED DOWN by Jack Kelly and illustrated by Pablo Marcos (Why? Halloween is coming in more than a month away and I wanna get spooked up ahead of time)

Order Update Time: 1 more tithing session left until homecoming weekend

And now for the rest of 2019 starting on October 1st: I wanna read 50 pages or more per day to catch up faster than expected. I promise. No picture books allowed. Sorry kids, bingereading is for ADULTS ONLY!!! Nobody can take away MY freedom to read and MINE ALONE! Anyways, moving on...

Over the rest of the past month...

In a second week of well-being, I have savored one random thing per day and was thankful for ALL 5 things a day too via a journal sub-entry.

The third week: I never got a chance to connect with random people especially guys my generation due to Mom's medical leave. My random acts of kindness contributed absolutely 100% to the caregiving of Mom in post-op mode and NOTHING outside it except I contribute financially to the local church. Not only that, for I have contributed on a more financial level to not just "keep America great" but also "rescue more children from abortion". That is all because of the politics I am interested in since I was a middle schooler not knowingly in more details until 11th grade. I knew what communism is about because it's evil, but never have I ever understand what socialism and capitalism is until age 18. When I was in college, I knew there is MORE good in capitalism than socialism because my generation does the exact opposite and let our nation down BIG TIME since they still don't accept the fact that Trump won the 2016 elections and that they were brainwashed into a Russian hoax and coming into the investigation but NEVER understanding the endpoint being solved. Spoilers: there is no collusion and no obstruction. See?

Week 4 of well-being: I walked 30 minutes per day with Mom and my sis Lauren and I slept more than the recommended 7-8 hours a night because my body and mind deserves the needed rest more due to my moderate obesity. Also, I napped last week.

Today, I got another chance to do the social gathering for the next 6 weeks. It is a "starting point". Yay! We won the game 27-10.

As a bonus, if you're interested, here's the following two things I have acquainted. I want you to look up "power of positive thinking" in the searchbar of the TED website and click on the one by Peale. Then you're all set.

And here is a link to the meditation playlist there. Enjoy!

IMPORTANT AND URGENT: The Science of Well-Being (planning to keep it up over the weekend...) and clean-up around the house (planning to get rid of a small batch of clothes soon) IMPORTANT BUT NOT URGENT: Project Exodus (13/40 complete; expecting the entire climax chapter in just a few days before leaving to go to Spokane by next week), my 52-week Bible reading plan (will catch up at Grandma's house tomorrow), Proverbs with an entire family (planning to be 19/31 complete as promised...), and the OT/NT walkthrough (still >1/12 accomplished; it is not gonna change anything) URGENT BUT NOT IMPORTANT: Time Bomb: an old-school fanfic from 2013-14 (will work more on chapter 21 sometime) and my comic project (currently working on chapter 1 as of right now after introduction and prologue over August) NEITHER IMPORTANT NOR URGENT: my 6-year old blog

Life Update: Earlier this week, I had a referral to come back to the doctor in Redmond where I almost lost my virginity to a blue speculum with LED lights on top the night before my sister was legally old enough to drink. Nonetheless, what's more? I was scheduled to have an ultrasound exam (no, I am NOT pregnant with child yet; mind you: I was expecting a transvaginal ultrasound exam to let the healthcare professionals know that I am okay menstruating properly because taking supplements when you're infertile and completely abstained makes you wanna have relationships with guys sooner than later while in reality you're not ready to date a significant other and just do nothing like a third of my generation living with parents yet a quarter of my generation overall was a caregiver especially if it is a temp job in my personal experience with Mom post-op) on October 15th. Then comes November 18th and I was scheduled to meet up with the weight loss clinic people who will help me with my weight loss. Mom did it all for me due to the fact that she is a legal guardian since my 18th birthday, so I NEVER get a chance to go to driving school or live on my own, especially after I grew out of the Navigator Assistant support system that helps people with disabilities in need of accomodations during college life.

Hey Natalie,

Good to read some of your journal and progress!  I'm also trying to get back to reading scripture from the Bible too.  My background is Christianity.  I don't have time to read everything you wrote right now, but will do that a bit later this week.  It's inspiring to see that you're reaching your goals.

SPOILERS! I am smarter than a 5th grader, are you?) - man, this is so slow this time with Mom already beating me by the time I started and she ended up on prezi #25... UGH... kids stuff...; the last time I have read it I went from prezi 3 (that's Jefferson) to prezi 11 (hey, Polk!) after reading 2 big chapters talking about Martha Washington and Abigail Adams, thus beating Mom at prezi 8 (Martin van Buren) now I'm like "What in the world? Good night!" (Haha, I am having references from the realm of outside-the-box!)); and 5 Levels of Leadership (will do Level 4+ AFTER The Science of Well-Being)

IMPORTANT AND URGENT: The Science of Well-Being (it's not complete yet without the passing grades of homework) and clean-up around the house (just donated two bags of clothes and accessories to the thrift shop today) IMPORTANT BUT NOT URGENT: Project Exodus (9/20 complete - on hiatus mode due to workbook), my 52-week Bible reading plan (still 47/52 complete - to be completed over Christmas break from workbook hopefully), the T-Books w/ fam (20% complete; on hold), Isaiah: A CBS (Community Bible Study) Spin-Zone Workbook (Day 5 of 7 complete for Lesson 9), and the OT/NT walkthrough (paused due to workbook) URGENT BUT NOT IMPORTANT: Time Bomb: an old-school fanfic from 2013-14 (I finally made a bit of new content after editing a scene where the company is about to enter the council room from Santa's workshop for about a bit and also checking my grammar for mistakes (forget autocorrect on certain phrases I liked to fit in). Yay! It has been around nearly a day ever since then.) and my comic project (on hiatus since August... and it's been sitting around for almost 3 months) NEITHER IMPORTANT NOR URGENT: my 6-year old blog (this deserves love with entries taken from a plum primrose journal I got from Goodwill back in August 2018)

Bookish Update Time: a multitude thereof - Face to Face Book 2 (stopped over halfway in the middle of a preface); Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman (will plan to do chapter 2+) ; A Kids' Guide to America's First Ladies by Kathleen Krull (I am now on the Wilson section - this was Ellen Wilson who was an artist I've read as of recent and now focusing on the other wife of Wilson); and 5 Levels of Leadership (will do Level 4+ AFTER The Science of Well-Being)

Author's Note: I've never read a new graphic novel in like what almost two quarters of the year since wrapping up Act 1 of "Saga" (with volumes 8 and 9) and the comic book I just read was "Be Prepared". It's a story about a girl who survives the camp of ORRA in Conneticut one summer. This is an interesting light read, and according to Mom it takes one hour. To me, I guess it's more like two or something because of the pacing I have sensed just like it came from cartoons. It's something very undiscovered when I first saw a cover, but overall a fun read to experience from start to finish.

IMPORTANT AND URGENT: The Science of Well-Being (it's not complete yet without the passing grades of homework; closes tonight for me, so I'm good though I was supposed to pay for the course certificate) and clean-up around the house (expecting something a bit more before my sister comes home from uni for Thanksgiving - I know I still have time left to give her organic peanut butter cups and cookie-creamed product placement from Walmart as a gift) IMPORTANT BUT NOT URGENT: Project Exodus (9/20 complete - on hiatus mode due to workbook, will resume by Friday), my 52-week Bible reading plan (still 47/52 complete - to be completed over Christmas break from workbook hopefully), the T-Books w/ fam (20% complete; on hold), Isaiah: A CBS (Community Bible Study) Spin-Zone Workbook (working on Days 2 & 3 of 7 for Lesson 10), and the OT/NT walkthrough (paused due to workbook) URGENT BUT NOT IMPORTANT: Time Bomb: an old-school fanfic from 2013-14 (it has been 5 days since creating new content) and my comic project (on hiatus for 3 months, no further signs of urging to do more artwork since I DNF'ed (did-not-fnished) the sky) NEITHER IMPORTANT NOR URGENT: my 6-year old blog (this deserves love with entries taken from a plum primrose journal I got from Goodwill back in August 2018, I just want to transfer it to the computer so badly it'll only happen every two weeks while I work...)

Bookish Update Time: a multitude thereof - Face to Face Book 2 (stopped over halfway in the middle of a preface); Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman (will plan to do chapter 2+); A Kids' Guide to America's First Ladies by Kathleen Krull (Thank God! I survived the book with Trump and the epilogue being falsely so-called yesterday. Man, the last portrait was soo realistic, I was impressed.); Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder by Joanna Flunke (around 3% complete); and 5 Levels of Leadership (will do Level 4+ AFTER The Science of Well-Being)

Author's Note: Tomorrow, my weight loss clinic appointment was scheduled for the morning, which is 10am. I have to be there 15 minutes before. I wanna do it for medical reasons. 1. I wanna go low-carb and sugar-free at the same time because the holidays are coming and I have plans to detoxify my body system from processed foods especially the frozen entrees I knew for sure I can't wait to just love to HATE! That means I have to eat fresh all the time and cook more and more. But it'll likely happen on the radar at some point in the future. Anyways, you'll never know what is gonna happen to me once when I had my diet plans set up along with the incoming prescription drug coverage (testosterones are killing me now since I have PCOS, so it's not natural for a woman to physically look like that). I have to take it by the end of a month or two until I have a boyfriend who's gonna be my perfect Mr. Right to elope for life! 2. Walking 30 minutes a day 5 times a week. I just tried for a short term and it doesn't work for a longer term. I am recommitting myself to this habit. 3. Drink lots of fluids. I am trying my best, especially after I donated blood to save lives a week ago.

Order Update Time: just bought Sugar Detox and a $25 analog weight stepper (it is only like $10-$15 when I listed into my wishlist back in around the mid-2010s) from Amazon, ships next week

Author's Note: Today, I just went keto because I was supposed to eat at least 80g of protein per day and 100g of carbs per day. I signed up for Thursday's seminar, so I'm excited to survive the holidays on a more healthier level. Yay!

IMPORTANT AND URGENT: The Science of Well-Being (when grades pass, I have to pay for my own certificate and my parents would have to pay me back) and clean-up around the house (just placed my lost present in the box that used to ship my stuff earlier this week, so I call it a horizonal time capsule for the future baby showers to come once when I become a volunteer) IMPORTANT BUT NOT URGENT: Project Exodus (9/20 complete - on hiatus mode due to workbook, will resume tomorrow as I promise), my 52-week Bible reading plan (still 47/52 complete - to be completed over Christmas break from workbook hopefully), the T-Books w/ fam (20% complete; will do 2 Thessalonians next after the workbook), the Daniel advent calendar for Thanksgiving (still 1/3 complete and I got so much time on my hands for two works in progress below), Isaiah: A CBS (Community Bible Study) Spin-Zone Workbook (still Day 6 of 7 complete for Lesson 10 with just a question dealing with restoration in handy), and the OT/NT walkthrough (paused due to workbook, will do more Leviticus and Matthew AFTER I am completely done with week 10 of workbook in time for a whole week of Thanksgiving) URGENT BUT NOT IMPORTANT: Time Bomb: an old-school fanfic from 2013-14 (it has been more than a week since creating new content), its midquel about the royal sisters (today, I am making new content - it's about the former relationship the younger sister had), Between Shades of Gold: An Arthurian Retelling of a Legend (it has been more than half a day since I made a sub-scene about the royal family of two parents and four half-blooded children), and my comic project (on hiatus for 3 months, no further signs of urging to do more artwork since I DNF'ed (did-not-fnished) the sky) NEITHER IMPORTANT NOR URGENT: my 6-year old blog (just got started on A New Prologue post last Tuesday)

Good Luck with the Sugar Detox, Natalie.  I  use food to soothe my emotions in the same way I used gaming.  I'm trying to work on that as well during my reboot process.

@Big Adam They are progressing okay. But the thing is if you fail for a bit, don't beat yourself up. Just pick up your pace and keep going! 

@ismailkanaan Thanks!

Countdown to Thanksgiving: 2 Days

My birthday is in 56 days.

Christmas is in 4 weeks.

The entire 2020s is in 5 weeks. Perfect timing left to get my 52-Week BRP done! I know I have a day in my thanksgiving advent calendar (3/4 complete) left until my sister comes home from college. I'll wait and see how it goes because "self-care is important" my parents told me about.

Christmas is in 25 days.

2020s is in 31 days.

My birthday is in 51 days.

Yesterday, I bought 4 pairs of socks, 5 dresses, and 1 bath set on Black Friday but still... no luck finding clothes for the giving tree until tomorrow...

Over the past half a week, I lost 0.6 pounds and I lost track of food logging due to my sister being at home for Thanksgiving despite the fact that I am still sticking to my diet and activity. My brain just rewired to the nutrition plate the week of my weight loss appointment after I still had my food pyramid stuck in my mind since I was in government school.
