    Hey, sorry its been a while. For some reason I didn't get notified. That looks cool. Right now I'm trying to learn flares. They are pretty tough.

    Day 8
    It's already day 8. Today was productive for the amount of time I had. I did watch a little twitch again but I think I'm going to quit watching twitch for now. I need to find better things to do. This is a super late journal, and I have to wake up at 7 in the morning tomorrow. It's nearly 2pm but I think this can serve as a good mental exercise to get me out of bed at the time I want to be. It would allow me to have more control of my life which is what I want. I feel like being strong mentally is important for situations like this one. I'm happy for all of your support.

    @Random hey, yes I'm going to work on not watching twitch. I guess I will just have to turn off twitch notifications. As far as the reading goes I have literally just started and I'm not even through chapter 1 yet. I'm kindof a slow reader.

    Day 7
    Today was kind of an unproductive day. Today actually was the first day I really wanted to game or thought about gaming really hard. It was probably because it was a Saturday and normally I don't have much planned for Saturdays. Anyway, I'm glad I resisted the temptation and didn't game. I did however watch a little bit of twitch which I think is fine because I am not actively involved in the process but I want to avoid days like today in the future. I think a good way to do this is to make a schedule the day before, especially for Saturdays. I would make a schedule for tomorrow, but I have a lot of stuff already scheduled so I don't really see the point. Anyway, I appreciate any support or advice you can share.

    I'm kinda new to this forum. I noticed there was nothing here on bboying/breakdancing. I have personally quit gaming and am now getting into bboying. I just thought I would start a new post about this for those who may be interested. Bboying is tough but your never too old to start. I thought that I would just leave this here and maybe people can post videos of moves you are struggling with or with just general questions you have about bboying.

    Day 6
    Hey guys
    This is kind of an early journal but I wont have time late in the day to do it so I figured I would just write it now. So, this will be a little less about what I am feeling and a little more about what I am working on. I am currently working on getting flares. If you don't know what that is it is a bboy move. You can see what it looks like online. I started practicing this move two weeks ago consistently. I have been on and off training it for about a year, but I have kind of got my grove back so I'm training it again. It looks pretty bad, but practice makes perfect. As far as other things I'm doing, I'm mainly focusing on school work because it is time consuming. I will continue to post journals in the future and I really appreciate the support I am receiving.

    @hycniejsy I'll let you know how it goes when I get the chance
    @Cam Adair Thank you
    Day 5
    Today went pretty well. Only thing I'm not happy about is how late I woke up. I was kinda lazy today and didn't get myself out of bed until 11:00AM. I feel like I wasted a ton of time just laying there and not getting much done. Other than that, I'm pretty happy with how the day went. I was able to get an adequate amount of work done for the time I was out of bed. If any of you guys know any tips on how to get out of bed or anything please let me know. I will appreciate it.

    Day 4
    Hey guys
    It's day 4 and I think today was a pretty good day. I got a lot of things done that I wanted to. I got up a little later than I wanted to but that's probably because I stayed up pretty late doing some assignments. I think something I'm going to do to keep myself from mindlessly browsing the internet is I'm going to take out a piece of paper and just write down things that I want to do. It can be anything other than looking at videos online or wasting time. I think this will help me get my priorities straight. I also did some gymnastics practice today and I am pretty soar from that. As far as reading goes, I am reading The Intelligent Investor. I'm hardly through the book unfortunately.  Thank you all for the support, and I will continue to post journals.

    Day 3
    Hey guys
    This is the third day of my detox. Today, I didn't game but I'm not 100% satisfied for what happened today. I wasted a lot of time just mindlessly browsing the internet. I feel like this is my next step in the process, I need to figure out ways that I can utilize the full capacity of my day instead of just looking at a bunch of internet videos and posting yik yaks and stuff. To combat this I've decided to permanently delete my yik yak account. I just feel like posting in there just doesn't gain me anything except for a few likes that I really don't need. As for watching YouTube videos, I feel like something needs to be done but I also feel there is a lot of useful content on youTube that I want to watch. I appreciate the support I am receiving so far and any further comments you all may have for improvement.

    @Raelana I agree with you when you say League of Legends eats up a lot of you time. My problem is sticking to what I want to do. For example, if I say to myself I'm only going to play one game, I only want to play one game. The problem is I often find myself unable to control and limit myself to one game. That is why I feel like it is best for me to quit. I will make sure to take time to explore as many potential interests as I can.
    @Schwing Thanks, I  started break dancing a while back but eventually stopped a little bit because of injuries. It is definitely something I would like to work on in the near future.
    Day 2
    Hey Guys,
    Today was kinda of an easy day not to play games. I was pretty busy all day with classes and meetings. One thing I did notice is that when I'm in my classes I often get distracted by my phone. To combat this, I will try to put my phone on airplane mode so it wont happen again. I woke up today a little later than I would have liked so I wasn't able to workout. I think that's okay as long as it doesn't become a habit. I got in a Facebook conversation online about intermittent fasting. If you don't know what that is, that is only eating during a 4-8 hour period and fasting for the rest of the day. From what I've heard from people online, it isn't bad for your health and it could potentially grow muscle. I think I will try it for a week and see if I like it or not. All in all, I would like to thank you all for your support. It has been quite amazing as several of you have commented on my previous journal with your thoughts.
    Edit: I just wanted to say that I am currently reading The Intelegent Investor for those of you that are interested in what I am reading.
