    Hello!
    I'm back from Thailand. It was a great trip! Today I've been studying, playing some chess and resting. The best moment of today was hanging with my friend Teemu and getting a pleasant surprise regarding the upcoming year.
    Overall life is going well. I've got pretty steady assets and plans going forward. Now I'm feeling a bit bored; my mind wants to do, but my body is exhausted after yesterdays training. Maybe I'll refine my values to my new personal journal.
    I received good grades from the final exams and it seems like I could receive an automatic right to study at the university I'm applying to.

    Hello!
    I got sick yesterday so I missed a meet with an interesting person. Well that happens, feeling better now. Tomorrow I'm going to celebrate my friends birthday. The best moment of today was studying physics and getting physically better.
    I feel like I've recovered pretty well from the load of work, I'm kind of missing the steady training and work. That has to wait for a while though; I'm traveling to Thailand next saturday and probably leaving the studying back here. 
    I'm feeling a bit tired so I'm going to take a good rest now. Good night, sleep tight fellow Gamequitters!

    Hello!
    Today was a nice and laid back day. I studied some circuit calculations and played Catan with a Seafarers twist. The best moment of today was seeing my friends.
    The rest of the week is looking pretty busy. I have some volleyball, studying, important meetings,a hiking trip and a flight scheduled. Looking forward to it now that I've rested a bit.

    Hello!
    Today I've rested. I've read, eaten a horse and reflected with flow. The best moment of today was dining with my friends and laughing at bad google translate translations. I've been a bit bored, but that's nice for a change. I feel like I've built up some energy and motivation to do things.
    Yeah, life truly isn't that straight forward, or maybe it's us humans that aren't. Thank you for your advice! What kind of books are you reading atm?

    Hello!
    A bit of evening reflection. Today was a nice day. I worked for 6 hours took a nap and met my friends. The best moment of today was making new friends and hanging out with the old ones.
    I've gone through many kinds of feelings lately and still am. I haven't yet figured out completely what these feelings are about. I feel that I'm going to take it a bit easier; probably meaning that I'm going to ease on some of my planned routine and leave time for friends, enjoying life and taking a more harmonious approach. 
    I once read a story about Dave Mustaine, Megadeth's guitarist, who even after accomplishing what most of us would consider outrageous success felt discontent. The source of his unhappiness was the fact that even the 50 million albums sold did not compare to the sales of the band he was once kicked out of, Metallica.
    I've built a hefty image of what my goals are and who I'd like to be, but in some way I feel that they might be my Metallica. An image that I truly want yet in a way so far away that it sucks joy out living as imperfect human being, even though life offers so many wonders and unique experiences every day. That's why I'm going to take a bit distance from my goals, the oppressing schedule and feeling they bring with them. At least for a while, there will be time for more goal-oriented behaviour as well.
    Explaining this is rather difficult. Anyways taking a bit easier, enjoying the good things that are and are to come.

    Hello!
    Today has been a good day. I'm feeling better regarding flu, so I've played volleyball and trained Muay Thai. It seems like sleeping in a too dry room increases the risk of catching a flu. Other than that I've been studying and managing some miscellaneous stuff. The best moment of today was playing volleyball. Teams were very equal and the games were solid.
    At the moment I'm feeling a slight dissatisfaction with my life. I don't really know what's up. Maybe it's the current changes that are happening, which bring about turbulence with the everyday rhythm. Maybe it has something to do with goals and how I've felt the need to make more space for social areas and relationships. Or maybe it's just something else which I'll have to figure out later. Anyhow still going.
    Today I'm grateful for:

    Hello!
    I'm taking it a bit easier and charging some batteries for now. I've worked pretty hard and noticed that I need to rest properly. The best moment of today was dining with friends and listening to a gig at a nearby bar.
     I believe that it's a typo actually. After a weekend of resting, mathematics and exercise felt refreshing and solid. This is probably what it should look like. Although some pleasant function solving operations like infinite limes' or d/dx:ing functions are like mathematical meditation at times. Nice to see that you are still around here!

    Hello Good old GameQuitters!
    I've been living my life as usual. Spending time with my relatives, studying maths and physics and training martial arts. 
    Today was a weird day. One of the reasons was having hard time deciding what to do with a problem regarding a relationship. It felt as if the problem was bothering me all day, but gladly it resolved while I talked about it with my family. I feel about 10 times lighter at the moment. It certainly was the best moment of today.
    My plans are on the go as usual. There has been some inconsistency with my training because of the asbestosis case in my gym. As those problems are managed I'll be able to further consolidate my old habits.
    Today I'm grateful for:

    Hello!
    Today was a good day! I studied physics, worked and finished Mikhail Bulgakov's The Master and Margarita. The best moment of today was having a nice conversation with my employer.
    I've been going through some messy relationship-related stuff today. It is draining but also very good to get over with.

    Hello!
    A good day. I worked and cooked and planned the upcoming week. I've felt pretty tired recently. It's probably due to lots of physical work and somewhat random sleep schedule. I'm working on it. The best moment of today was dining with my family.

    Hello!
    Today was a good day. I worked during the day and met my friends in the evening. I thought that work was going to be rough, but it ended up being much better than I expected. The best moment of today was probably joking with friends and listening to classical music with my father.

    Hello!
    Today was a great day. I've taken it easy, planned my upcoming two months, checking my overall goals and spent time with friends. The best moment of today was putting my goals, planned actions and schedule in line. It was also great to share moments with friends.

    Hello!
    Today has been an okay day. I've studied maths, played volleyball and worked. I've been very physically active recently. It's good, but I feel my body is craving for some rest. Going to take the next few days a bit easier. Today I applied for university; at the moment I've got Aalto, a revered science university, on my scope. The best moment of today was dining with friends.
    As plenty of goals got completed due to the end of the finals I've been hustling a bit with plenty of random stuff. I feel like I need to define my goals a bit more tomorrow. It's good to do a little check in with all that's going on.
