LVC - Writing like the wind


Recommended Posts

 

I'm not watching the current Game of Thrones season, so I'll not make this an GoT theme, although the title fits. I hape my paper will finished before the new book anyway. Can't afford to study so long. And I have to hand in my 20 to 25 pages by the end of the month anyway. Gosh... I should have started earlier.

 

Last challenge didn't go so well. But I didn't finish playing yakuza yet. With all the studying I had to do, I couldn't really put much time into playing video games. So let's just copy and paste some stuff. ^^

Time for a new challenge!

I'll mostly continue with the same goals. And I'm not going to change the names. So when I get back for a long retrospective at the end of the year, I'll know, that I sticked to the same old routine.

 

Goal One:  Overcome the Virus and scavage enough for food

In yakuza zero you have to get ramen and other food to sustain yourself. And you get money by fighting against goons in the streets. It feels so much like the old GTA games combined with streets of rage or Tekken.

Goals

  • drink 3l a day and more when I get exercise (track in plant nanny)
  • 3 portions of freggies (paper tracker)
  • reduce unhealthy snacks and take away (not more then once a week, paper tracker)

==> aim for six good eating days a week. And for the beginning of the challenge I'll try to not eat any sweets for as many consecutive days as possible.

 

  • Bonus: Try out some new recipes and post them in the forum.

 

 

Goal Two: Don't let them outrun you

  • almost every day: walking or another cardio
  • Bonus: establish morning routine: 20 minutes sun salutations, 5 Tibetans and 10 minute meditation. I try to get it in at least three times a week

 

Goal Three: Get your stuff done and don't give in the lethargy

  • Study 15 hours a week again.
  • Bonus for writing at least five pages a week on my paper

 

Goal Four: To Do List

Adulting like a pro!

I'm going to write to-do-lists again and set priorities.

Goal One:  Overcome the Virus and scavage enough for food Grade: 66,25%, B (Last challenge: 75%, B )

 

Couting calories really didn't go so well. I'll try to focus on not snacking this time and try counting calies again in September.

Well, it doesn't look like the goals were a bad fit last time if you managed a B. Now you just gotta make through the whole challenge. Totally doable. :)

Mhhh, I think I made an error there. I'll have a look at it later.

 

The last few days have been quite hard. I didn't really get in the workflow and just when I finally picked myself up again and scheduled some yoga for the evening, I burned my wrist badly. At least it's already getting better and I finally managed to write more than one hour on my text without struggling too much. And I totally have an "Ohrwurm" from Queen.

 

The show must go on. ^^

Yesterday went really well. I worked on my text for about six to eight hours. (Got a lot of books from the library, wrote an introduction and started gathering for the first two chapters.) I finally managed to fill some pages. The introduction looks good already. The rest ist only a first draft. I also did some exercise and meditated before going to sleep.

 

I had a cool role play like dream tonight. While recapping the part I still remembered in the morning, I got some ideas for the adventure I'm preparing for some friends.

 

I finally feel productive again.

Thanks. Let's see how the rest of the week goes. I want to get as far as I can before my boyfriends birthday next Saturday.

 

Update:

Today I did a few minutes of yoga in the morning and in the evening, went for a walk and wrote some more on my paper. Got my five pages in for this week. But because of being unproductive last week, I should write some more on Sunday and try to finish the first draft until next Saturday, so I can celebrate with my bf.

This week it's an A for eating, an B for exercise and an A- for writing. I wanted to get in more than the five scheduled pages, but I had to prepare a lot for my bf's birthday. So I guess it's ok.

Week 3 ✔✔✔✔✔✔✔

 

Next challenge I definitely have to focus on getting back into exercise. I tend to drop that entirely, when I get stressed out. This challenge was especially bad, because I stayed at home for writing. It was just too much of a hazzle to drag the 30 books and my laptop around for the paper. I know, that's an excuse. I didn't need all the books all the time. But, nah.... At least it pays off I've been paying so much attention to my studies. I'll write a mail to an advisor and ask, if it makes sense to take the preparation courses for the final exam next semester. If that works out, I can take my final exams next spring. Next winter break I'll have to write my thesis as well, so this paper was good practice for that. At the moment I'm correcting my first draft. So maybe the study time will add up a little more. There are still three hours left until midnight.

 

edit: wrote until 3am.... now I'm feeling totally unsatisfied. I'm still missing 1,5 pages. Didn't see, that the page count was broken.

 

Sorry for not checkin into any challenges. I'll be back soon.

Eh. School's a bear. That happens sometimes, and to be frank, it is an important thing. I'm glad that the trade has caused your work to prosper. :) And besides, unless something terrible happens, we'll still be here in a couple of weeks when the next challenge starts.

All right. Seems like this challenge didn't go that bad. I'm going to be away until the end of September, so I won't start a new challenge yet. See you all back in Oktober.
