Recently, I’ve been feeling that life is starting to go by really fast, and as it does I find myself forgetting to take time to think about what I am grateful for.
I don’t live the greatest life, and my anxiety and negative thoughts tend to make me think negatively a lot of the time, but I have periods of time when I start looking up and things around me seem better. But there are people out there who are living in a worse situation so
Things I am Thankful For
- Family and friends – Although I don’t have many close friends, I am thankful for the ones I do have (online and offline) and my amazing family members (especially my sister and little cousins who are like my brothers).
- Parents who sacrificed so much to ensure me and my sibling have a good life
- Food and Shelter
- Being able to afford post-secondary education
- Being alive in this time and age, where technology is so advanced
- Living where I live – FIRST world country, living in a city which is very close to the most popular city in the country, meaning I have access to many resources and place
The list goes on and on, but these are the most important ones I should mention. Taking the time to think about these things can really help put you in a better mindset.
My number one favourite to-do list app, and trust me, I have tried millions of other apps before deciding this one was the best one for me. It works on phones and on a web browser, and you can make different categories for you to-do lists. It even sends reminders. I use it to keep track of various things – school work, personal things, etc. Very useful app.
Strides is a habit tracker that is also available on both mobile and web. I personally use it to remind myself to take medicine/vitamins, exercise, write in my journal, etc. It’s a great app, it shows a calendar view of how many times you followed your habit and since I love visualizing things, it’s great for me. It also has reminders.
Chime (iPhone Only)
For someone like me who loses track of time very easily, this app is awesome. It plays a sound notification (which you can change) either every quarter hour, half hour, just before the hour, or on the hour. I don’t know why but it helps me stay in touch with reality and also be more productive.
Momento (iPhone Only)
I don’t know if this app is still available because I haven’t updated it in years (oops), but it’s a journaling app that I like to use to jot down little things that happen during the day that are funny or that I don’t want to forget, then I can look back and remember things that I have probably forgotten about. I also write down my dreams here sometimes. It’s great when I don’t have a notebook to write in.
It was the first (and probably only) mech anime that I actually loved. It has great themes, characters, and great mech designs – which Gundam is obviously known for. I can’t say much about the anime without spoiling most of it (LOL), but if you’re reading this then you should definitely give it a try.
Another “mech” anime I liked was Neon Genesis Evangelion, but it focused more on the emotional aspects of anime rather than the fighting/physical parts, so I won’t count it here.
