I have a vague level up your life goal again. :apthy:

Anyways, this is all for now. I will share to you how I track my progress in all of my quests and I also need to figure out how to score this thing. :P

I'm all alone in our living room, and the dogs are howling and barking outside this time of the night, it gives me the creeps. *shivers*

There is more possible. :D When I buy food then I drive 2,5 km with my bike to the store. Would love to bike to work too, but that are 12 kilometer hill up and down. Takes too much time.

That's an important Life goal. What area are you trying to go into?

And those are some awesome challenges. I really like how you'e got the EC for each area, and the ideal frequency. 

For the water one, the easiest tip is to have a water bottle that you carry around with you EVERYWHERE. Have one in your room, in your bag, in your kitchen, etc. Bring it with you, and you'll find yourself drinking a surprising amount. I tend to drink most when I get bored in class :P

All the discipline to you!

I love the idea of extra credit! 

And as someone who drinks water all the time, I second the idea about having a water bottle with you everywhere. I probably drink too much water, honestly, but I love it, and I don't really drink anything but water and tea.

You know... I never thought about having accountability goals, but that's a great idea!

You're not alone with your struggle on this. I grew up on juice and kool-aid... so it's hard for me to crave water at all! Sorry I can't help with suggestions, but I feel you.

RECAP

 

Oh wow. I'm so late to wrap up this challenge.

 

I admit, I just vanished from the forums and never updated this again. It was because so many things happened to me in searching for the career path I would take.

 

As from my previous challenge, I posted about my desire to be a financial advisor. I went to the event last October 1, and I met many amazing people, especially Kenneth Cobonpue. I met him accidentally when I was going to the comfort room, but I didn't know how awesome he was at the time. I mean, I know he's awesome, but I didn't know he's that awesome! I was taken aback when I saw him but I just said hi with a smile, and he smiled back. :D And then the time came when he told his story of being an artist and entrepreneur. Woot! :) It's just so excitingly overwhelming when you listen to people who is successful and still looking for improvements and wanting to give more to the world. I was so inspired at that time.

 

And so days passed and I started training to be a financial advisor. I did some reviews, but finance/business jargon is very new to me, like,my brain was squeezed too much just to be able to understand everything. :P But I completed the review anyway. After the review, I met someone who offered me another opportunity, and during these times I was very open to everything, like EVERYTHING. So I went with her to an orientation. And guess what? I was hooked! Like hooked! Everything I wanted to have in a career, was there. The opportunity was speaking to me too much. And so I cancelled the 3-day training course to be a financial advisor.

 

And here I am, starting my entrepreneur journey. Part of my next challenge is so much concentrated on my entrepreneurship, and so the fitness and diet goals are somewhat a minor priority. But it's okay. Because as what happened this month, I lost 3kg without focusing on my fitness goals! I think the drinking of water/not drinking sugar helped, and also I see to it that I get enough sleep for the day, so I think I'm gonna stick to this small healthy changes first.

 

I also tried applying for a government position, but I was the lowest in rank because I don't have any work experience and I haven't had much trainings and internships.

 

There is also this position that I really really really love, and it is also part of the next challenge I have. It is in line with my course, I love the company, and they are still a startup and I'm excited to the experience they will give me and the growth I will have with the company! :) At first, I was also in dilemma because I really need to focus on my entrepreneurship as I have some deadlines to meet, but I also love this opportunity, too. I again was in a rut of indecisiveness. But I said to myself, "Why not have both? All I will do is give every best I have, and the Lord will always point me to what's best for me."

 

So yeah, I will have a hectic schedule this month! :) I thought I couldn't join this challenge, but lo and behold! As I was logging in the forums, it was just starting! And so I said why not and join again. :)

 

As my experience in the forums, it really helped me focus on the things I really need to do on a specific time. I am also coping on not being too hard on myself when I don't get to do everything I listed to do, so long as I am enjoying what I'm doing and also accomplishing some tasks.

 

Goodluck on your challenge fellow rebels! And let's always keep moving forward! :angel::angel::angel:
