I'm hoping within the next few years I'll be able to just work for myself. That's my new long term goal.

Edit: I kind of branched out a bit more. Exploring different avenues and met some good people. As time goes by, things are just now falling into place.

Geometry because my drawings suck. It's painful to see some problem you'd tried for two hours was obvious once you realized something evident from a good drawing.

attempting to improve my at-home life, but has been quite difficult as of late because it's not necessarily me creating the problem, and involves some very difficult choices that I don't necessarily want to go through with. You know, the usual dilemma sort of stuff.

I'm kinda permanently in this mode. It helped me get out of the last episode I was in for the reason you mentioned

Right now, physical health because my appetite changed once I got on anti-depressants a year-and-a-half ago and I put on weight. I was pretty good at keeping my weight stable once I noticed, but I didn't have time to focus on being healthier because of school.

I don't have a license which is also Sad and I'm Trying, but zzzzzz I won't even have a car where I'm going anyway.

I should be working on my mental health since that's the main reason for my break from school, but I've been alright mental health-wise so I dunno what to do.

edit: o yea im tryna not be bad at fiffer

My self loathing is currently becoming better, though I still dislike some things about myself; like how I'm flat chested (damn these boobs are taking a while to be visible and tangible to others), and the fact that I'm so damn thin.

I'm improving on my body image, but I'm still not where i'd like to be yet.

Also depression as well, but that's kinda old news, as I've been feeling better for weeks (at least anyone who follows my reddit would know).

- legitimately believe I have value in some form.

- overcame pathological focus on sex and finally recognized it for what it was. no longer care about sex as an end to itself.

- reduced time wasted by masturbating; now treat masturbating like speedrunning.

- no longer care about body image as much. still care about fitness from a health POV.

- work on my self-concept; I identified for a long time as "an asshole" because I didn't have the vocabulary to express something like "I care more about minimizing falsehood than about being polite." I don't think I am actually an asshole, in fact I disagree with the whole moral framing of the word.

since I am adhd and also have non-24 hour sleep patterns (i.e. my body has tremendous amounts of energy and has always preferred to go to bed much later even as early as age 7), the following relate to that:

- realizing that if I can see calorie totals as a number that I just follow procedurally, I can see the time I go to bed this way as well, and use sleep aids to do this.

- valuing completion, or finishing a thing, as a virtue in and of itself.

- valuing normal adult responsibilities that I have been able to get out of in the past.

- appreciating the value of routine, even if it's silly.

- going out of my way to help other people and maintain relationships, mail out presents, be thoughtful, etc.

- appreciate simple pleasures in life, like diet pepsi and air conditioning.

not exhaustive, but good enough.

Oh yea, and notice how my tagline says "Constantly Improving!"

Although that originally pertained to what was once my constant improvement playing FFR, I have been thinking that this goes beyond.

I feel like that whatever happens in life, whether my FFR, music, studies, life choices, or just being a decent human being, I'm always improving in at least one thing. Even if I feel like I'm retrograding in something, I'm always improving in another. And I'm making sure to stay true to that.

I want to be more focused and disciplined with music education, practicing the violin more, and sticking to daily routines more strictly (balanced diet, streaming, exercise). Gaming is fun but I realize that it fuels my desire to be accepted by my peers as well as to compensate for past failures and it's not healthy.

I'm also working on completely letting go of my past and being content with where I am now even if I am slow with irl progress

Alright, here comes a big dump.

Want to improve:

- My drive to do anything "useful". I used to love programming but now I only do it if it's a task assigned to me.

- Doing the things that I should be doing for a better future but failing to do every time out of laziness. Often I get asked "why don't you do x?", I usually say "I know I should!" That's because I do know that it's a good idea, but whenever it comes down to it, I never feel like doing anything when I get home. For example, like that time when I could have had an internship. It was the proper course of action because it would have made me a very employable candidate for whatever job I end up with, but I didn't feel like writing a resume and so I convinced myself that I was under-qualified (I wasn't) and I wouldn't have gotten in (I would've). That's in the past, I'll do it better next time I have the opportunity

Currently improving:

- My weight, I'm considered "underweight" on most charts I see on google.

- My sleep schedule. It's a work in progress but I'd like to try waking up on an actual schedule. Getting off my phone at least an hour before bed is supposed to help but I'm having trouble sticking to it. No, I don't need to see garbage on reddit before I sleep. Sleep is very important, but instant gratification wins, apparently.

Improved:

- My FFR skill, and I'm still getting better!

- My social life. Being friends with people and hanging out with them weekly is better than having friends on nodding terms. This aspect of me saw improvement as early as: the minute I stepped my foot on a college campus, but it's been continually growing and has had, by far, the biggest improvement in 2018!

- My face. I have had mild acne for a while and with a change of habits and a better diet, it's finally starting to clear up. I think the most noticeable impact was after a not eating over 150g of sugar like 4-5 days per week. It's not sustainable. >‿<

- My anxiety; during this summer I began to do some introspection (out of boredom), and the way I was analyzing my situation ended up causing a few panic attacks. I'm not exactly sure what's changed but I have a different perspective on things now, I guess I told myself that the anxiety is very temporary, as all emotions are, and I can approach each problem separately instead of focusing on them all at once. It seemed to come up out of the blue as I had never experienced anything quite like it before, and it disappeared just as fast (still, that month was hell). Maybe it'll pop back up again at some later time.
