It’s been up to a week since I last wrote. I tried not writing out my daily tasks in order to have more flexibility, but that ended up not working very much in my favor. I’m going back to writing out my tasks each day.

For the past couple of days, I’ve been trying to explore more gospel/Christian music. I’m finding it difficult to find songs that speak to my emotions.

School is getting increasingly uninteresting for me. I don’t know exactly why, but I feel quite unmotivated recently.

I’d have to work on that because I know it’ll probably affect my performance.

Today promised to be a stressful one considering the fact that we would have lectures from 8 am to 5:30 pm nonstop. It however ended up not being quite as bad as I expected it to be.

I couldn’t read the 48 Laws of Power or go further in the Redux tutorial today, unfortunately. Most of my free time was spent on socials, a way I definitely wouldn’t spend my time.

I used my evening reading time to do an assignment. I’m glad to get that off my plate.

We were told that the Senate met to consider our results today, which means results will be uploaded anytime from now. I’m trying not to be nervous about it though.

I have no lectures tomorrow. It is a totally free day for me and I plan to make good use of it.

Today wasn’t a very noteworthy one when it came to evening reading. I couldn’t seem to focus even though I started early. I think I’m just tired. Yeah, that’s actually it.

I was able to read The 48 Laws of Power’s 14th Law: Pose as a friend, work as a spy. However, I made no additional progress with learning Redux.

Another good day for me. I feel satisfied with what I was able to achieve today. I feel like I did well.

During my evening reading, I was able to finish reading all the course material for BST104 (Bible Studies) and completed the Async logic chapter of the Redux tutorial.

I didn’t read The 48 Laws of Power today, unfortunately. We go again tomorrow!

Today was another good day, building on the momentum from the last two days or so. I continued with the Redux tutorial today and completed the React UI part. Slow progress, but it’s still progress, am I right?

I also read the 13th law of the 48 Laws of Power: When asking for help, appeal to people’s self-interest, never to their mercy or gratitude. I made it part of my morning routine this time around.

Tomorrow we have service in the morning. I’m never excited to go for service but I have to.

Today was an eye-opener when it comes to my spiritual life. With the help of a friend I was able to realise how much I’ve been lacking spiritually and that I need to really step up with how well I’ve been serving as a Christian. To this end, I attended my first Bingham University Student Fellowship meeting. It ended up being much more than I expected and I’m happy I attended. I’m definitely open to attending more of those.

I still pushed on with learning Redux today. I learned a little about using Redux with a React UI.

My daily evening studying couldn’t hold because of the fellowship. I thought the fellowship would eat deep into my study time but it actually didn’t.

Nevertheless, I’m happy about the spiritual realisation I had today and I hope to build on it.

I couldn’t write yesterday’s journal because I had a serious headache that didn’t allow me to look at a screen. Falling asleep was a pain.

Yesterday was a mess in terms of following the plan. For some reason, when it came to making a choice, I kept choosing the wrong option. Not proud of how my day went yesterday. I need to make things work today and get back on track.

I was able to start designing a website for a project I’m working on and discussed some details about it with my roommate. I won’t disclose it now though.

I didn’t feel right this evening. I just wanted to be alone and didn’t have any desire to study whatsoever.

We go again tomorrow!

Today was a comparatively less productive day. I couldn’t do any studying this evening due to some distractions. I did not even read The 48 Laws of Power. Now I have three chapters more to cover.

I can only find solace in the fact that I was able to do a little more work in learning Redux.

Obviously, not much happened today. I hope I have a better day tomorrow.
