    Probably not what you were looking for but I think writing this out might help me achieve my goals.

    I haven't been very successfully socially thus far. Always had self esteem issues, a need for validation, among other fun traits. I think I can make a turnaround this summer, by starting now, and work on being at least relatively socially able, increase my self-esteem and set myself up for university and beyond.

    So the next couple of weeks is research. I often get lost in this stage, forever trying to find the optimal plan when I just just do. It's a form of procrastination, probably a function of anxiety. So I'm going to work out what I want and how to achieve it. 6 months left until Sixth Form. I think in that time I can put on some bulk (skinny dude) and quit the addictive, obsessive internet binging.

    I bought a guitar (and some juggling balls - why not haha) that's due to arrive on Wednesday. I will sign up to the gym on Tuesday. Of course, I'll make sure to keep revising. But I need to replace my destructive or passive time wasting pursuits with things that can make me feel good about myself. Going to the gym, playing an instrument, learning something weird and kinda funny, reading books more often and, finally, something social. This is the killer for me because I don't know what to do. Maybe I'll start playing football this summer. It seems like sports teams are the way to go with regards to easy social circles. But I'm not particularly talented. A martial art like BJJ seems like good fun.

    Either way, after that and once I feel comfortable with myself, I think I'll start trying to get over my social anxiety wrt girls. Yeah, it's kinda pathetic but it is what it is.

    So the next two weeks are going to comprise mostly of taking care of basic needs and trying to implement some structure into my life. Not exactly exciting but is probably needed. Eating well, sleeping well, getting exercise, etc. Want to try to drill myself into good habits.

    Well, wish me luck

    you know those 6 hour long classical music study videos on YouTube? For some reason I am so addicted to them and ironically they don't help me study at all...
    :laugh: good luck for that

    4 minutes. Journaling and blogging is one of the things I'm starting to do. It's really helping me develop my attention span over an extended period and results in more interesting thoughts. Before, anything over a twitter length post was exhausting.

    I'd recommend it. Journaling about a day, especially when you've got nothing but school going on, is incredibly boring, so I started keeping a dream journal. In doing so, I'm now able to recall 2 dreams a night, minimum, when before I could have sworn I didn't dream at all. I've also achieved lucidity and control over the dreamscape meaning sleep time is basically a sandbox to play in!

    Anyway, enjoy your break everyone!

    I'm on a 2 week Easter holiday, and for me I will be skiing with my school in France for the first week.
    And for the second week I will be regretting the skiing and be studying for National 5 exams.

    I feel happy with how I have chosen to spend the holiday though. I just have to pass these National 5 exams as a stepping stone to get to Higher exams, which will decide whether or not I get to study Medicine!

    If you're skinny and a beginner, you might be paired with a girl in BJJ, could solve two of your problems.

    Ahaha. I want to offer a "**** you" but :lol:
    Maybe they'll put me on the girls' football team too
    Why didn't I consider this ingenious strategy? Stay skinny and win!

    But, yeah, this is why I will put on muscle mass before sports team. :lol:

    I wasn't taking the piss, I roll with girls sometimes and they kick my arse. It could help anxiety as there's obviously physical contact that becomes increasingly less awkward when your main concentration is to stay conscious/ keep your arm bending the way it's supposed to. Not so much thinking "there's a girl sitting on me right now" more "what should I do to continue to breathe?"
