Attempting to stop binge eating. If I can make it through the rest of the night without stuffing my face, today makes one day binge free. Hooray. lmao

do the essay outline tomorrow
finish writing a chapter of a story
answer posts for three people waiting for months

update: registration isn't open for the jlpt yet but I studied vocab and grammar for an hour on anki.

Don't binge tonight so you can come back and brag about it tomorrow!

Is the essay for a class? Good luck with all of your writing projects!

I'm going to set the same goals for myself for next week.

Anonymous 182633

anki is god for language learning. Hope you do well! Languages are fun, Japanese seems interesting but I'm not a weeb so I feel like I'd be at a disadvantage.

My goals are to not pick at my skin, and to not overeat - to stop when I'm full.

Anonymous 183430

My goals are the following:

-Finish a lot least some career, one I like l.
-Have at least 1 kid with the male I love currently before I reach 40.

Thanks, it's helping me a lot.

I'm a fast eater but drinking a lot of water/tea/diet soda with my meal slows me down and helps me feel fuller sooner.

What's the first video game you're going to play?

Good luck with grad school apps. I hope you get the recommendations yoy want!

Anonymous 183568

-go out more often, at least once a week, maybe even meet people irl
-turn video ideas into actual videos
-finish packing

covering my skin with something like bandages, stickers, masks, or pimple patches has helped me, depending on the area you're picking. i've also learned to just touch the skin instead of picking at it.

Anonymous 184708

It's going ok. I'm the one drawing and studying Japanese. I'm still excited about drawing and drilling vocab, but I'm losing steam on reading the novel because I spend so much time copying and looking up kanji. I'm pushing through it because I'm actually interested in the story otherwise I probably would've lost interest already.

Recently I've been getting a lot more into teas, and it really does help with the overeating, when I finish up with a meal I make myself some black tea/matcha instead of grazing on snacks like usual.
Are you doing research on a particular topic for your paper?
Good luck on the exam nona, but even if you don't do well I'm sure there will still be other opportunities in the future.

It's the end of the year, I'm getting ready to move, and my brain just kind of died. The only goal I hit was studying and not complaining about packing. Since this week I'll be unpacking I'm going to go easy on myself.

This is cringe but I started my new years resolution at the beginning of January. I'm challenging myself to do pilates every day of December so when January comes I've already got a month of effort to kick things off. I'm doing really well right now and I really think 2023 is going to be my year

Trying to get over my social anxiety and imposter syndrome.
One piece of advice that's stuck with me a lot is that if the interaction goes bad, it's not the end of the world. You can either never see them again or they will forget.
And besides, there's no way I can learn to get better at talking without talking first. So I'll just keep doing it. I'm still learning.
I want to become a very confident and self-assured person, so until I am, I'm just going to fake it till I make it.

Anonymous 203860

Starting now means you're committed. Good work, keep it up!

Anonymous 203864

That sounds difficult, good luck! What do you have imposter syndrome about?

Anonymous 203890

Thank you!
I feel like before I say anything people will make fun of me, generally look down on me or pick some issue with it, etc.
I'm also trying to learn Japanese and I have a lot of anxiety before I try to speak it to natives in case I make any mistakes or anything, but then I realize there's no way to get better at speaking a language besides speaking it and mistakes are the only way you can learn.
I made a lot of mistakes when trying to learn and speak German, but natives were nice to me and would always kindly correct my mistakes.

Anonymous 204452

In my experience most Japanese people will just be happy you're trying to learn their language!

I used to use the site/app hinative and it was a friendly place. I stopped using it for a while and now it's all monetized but I'd imagine the community is still the same.

Anonymous 206607

Short-Term Goals
- finish my python tutorials
- start working out
- deep clean my room/the rest of my house
- finish playing the games i started
- build a new pc

I have agoraphobia nona what helps me get groceries is deciding in advance what store is the least awful to go to and then only getting a few things at once. "I am going to aldis to get eggs, milk, and bread then leaving immediately" or "I am going in to get toilet paper and paper towels and leaving immediately." It was easier to pick things i could carry without a cart to make the interaction quicker while repeating the mantras in my head. Eventually i was able to be more relaxed in the store and idly browse.

美女陌生人,你是我吗?I just finished working through the HSK5 textbooks and workbooks (all pirated ofc), but the reading section is hard, there are always random unknown biology and history words (and idioms!) that throw me off. Thank god the writing part can be typed. For chinese content I've only ever used 抖音, there are downsides but anything else is too much effort. Next year I'll try working through hsk6

Anonymous 208219

Go unpack, think about how satisfying it'll feel afterwards when you're done
What I did is download hsk textbooks and workbooks from google, used yt for the audio parts, google translate for unknown words and ofc anki flashcards. This mostly works for reading though. Maybe with speaking you can watch tv shows and copy how they talk, like how esl folks watch friends?
Blocksite really helps for me, there's a function for blocking in incognito aswell.

I'm going to get my silly little passion project out of planning-stage limbo. Any progress is better than none!

Anonymous 208949

I was too scared to post here since I thought I'd fail but I managed to do my meal prepping. Three little omelettes with tomatoes, mushrooms, zucchini and sausage. It's just for this week but now I won't have to eat alone in the cafeteria. It was so little work, I don't know why I imagined I'd eat the ingredients raw from the fridge.

My next goals are
1. to finish my damn homework (270 days due, no idea why the professor hasn't failed me but I shouldn't push it)
2. to not skip school for the rest of the month. I'll pick one day with an especially intimidating group project and have a flu then but the rest of it should be smooth sailing, I don't know why it's so hard for me to walk out the door.

Oh man I'm starting uni soon and I'm stressed, I skipped like half of senior year in high school because the content was online anyways. Right now my game plan is to pack and prepare everything the day before, and to make going to bed at 11 and getting up at 7 a habit. The meal prep sounds awesome btw

I did some digital drawing today! My goal for tomorrow is to line the hair. Also at least open my novel and read a few sentences lol. Anki is going well so I don't think I need to set goals for it right now.

Anonymous 214533

Ankisisters…how do you use it? I've been lazy and just click 2 if I don't know a word and 3 if I kinda do. I'm making progress but I don't think it's how you're supposed to do it. I usually add in ~20 new characters every four days from my textbook.
How do you learn digital drawing? I have a drawing pad and everything but it wasn't intuitive like trad drawing was and I was quickly disheartened.

Anonymous 214932

The main deck I use is the premade core 6k for Japanese. It gives the word, then an example sentence. If I can read the word and know the meaning right away, I press blue/easy. If I had to think about it I press green/regular. If I debated the meaning but got it right or had to read the example sentence to get it right, I press grey/difficult. If I got the reading, meaning, or both wrobg I press red/one more time.

For my homemade decks, I've found being honest with myself gives the best results.

You can take a picture of a real media sketch and draw over it. That's a good bridge. Do you use a tablet that's hooked up to a pc? That takes some practice to get used to. Just try to use it as much as you can until you build the muscle memory.

Anonymous 215482

I finished my pic and I'm happy with it! I also did a study as a warm-up

I absolutely destroyed all my anki decks yesterday. Time to hit them again and see how much actually stuck.

At least you didn't get it just to not be able to drive anyway. I literally haven't used mine since getting it. I can't drive because I can't afford a car and still probably won't anywhere near in the future. At this point I just want to GTFO this car-dependent town to somewhere I won't even have to though. Then I'm probably going to be a paper driver forever.
