IMPORTANT AND URGENT: The Science of Well-Being (by far; hopefully, I'll pass the Week 3 quiz either today or tomorrow) 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 down and only 8 weeks more to go), Proverbs with an entire family (now 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: 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)

Bookish Update Time: The 5 Levels of Leadership by John C. Maxwell (now on hiatus after 3 "Levels"); now reading...

Order Update Time: 2 more tithing sessions left until homecoming weekend; the Q-Tips just arrived at the front porch and I had them restocked in my bathroom, all set for usage

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.
