  • self: quiet time: I’m doing journaling in the morning and when I’ve started to listen to worship songs everyday again?
  • health diet: cont. on good ben
  • fam new: fam mtg to make a contract with an about her first okozukai. she is excited and this morning when I woke up seeing her folding the clothes and said I keep the promise (in the okozukai contract). that was such a joy moment. || spouse booked for us a half day event called kid money school, which turned to be both satisfied for myself and the kid. he is bringing new necessary info/element into our family, in terms of new experience for the kids and knowledge on finance for us all
  • fam morning time: w. spouse at copan was easy and honest, w.o. mobile or news, talking about future looking forward. he mentioned the shako-dance class and I told about run together in near future || we had a great SAT morning at WN. We had 3 set of ham-egg set fully satisfied. I could review my week journal, bringing some structure into it
  • fam night time: tooth brushing at 9pm was a hopeful step. I hope this continues and help prevent my child from eating late before bed || tooth brush at 9pm and nombiri time after that was easy and good. an did drawing with the quarderno, while I organize my mtg note a bit. || was great and peacefully with the milestone of tooth brush at 9pm. an and I did a bit of chocolate home making.
  • finance random: kid money school like a wake up call, about 教育費 and 老後費
  • church: we’ll join church event — kid park day — next SAT and having lunch w. imuy fam before that. joy was spouse agreed and changed the swimming class so we have yoyu for it || grow course: finally made it, i almost skipped it thinking I don’t have time but I’ve done it. My top3 motivational gifts are {encouraging, mercy and giving}
  • work: tech env engage: good chat w. ubaf, he is young but talented and kind in offering help. gnud paid interest in my comment about science inclusive design also brings gladness. good mtg w. ap to get progress.

I like the characters within the team. I hope to be able working well, building a good culture with them. || manager: 1:1 with him was fine. what he said made sense.
  • work — nlp group: yuh joined and baf very active in leading the group
  • social — mom group: yesterday lunch was unexpected. c.Nh shared a lot and open about her story, i didn’t understand her motivation, perhaps she wanted to help or answer my proposal for sharing about building relationship in marriage. The event helped me understand about her more, respect her more. and especially understand about my spouse, I’m surprisingly about his openness and other thoughts of his on the past events. Still, this situation of open conversation was great. I believed we were all led for a reason. I want to ponder what God wants me to invest more
  • tiring of enormous info at ramping up: getting tiring with input info, lots of all hands || maybe I am mentally exhausted with the ramping lost
  • spiritual health: i might need to tune my tone of voice when talking to others (looks to be negative for now, at work, at home) … maybe I need rest.
  • journaling quality: my journaling sharing with life group was somehow awkward
  • sleep quality: could not fall in to sleep after an did. It is not clear what is the cause, could be the jasmine tea at dinner, could be something about the dinner left. I still think it is the tea.
  • fam morning time: cannot say it is satisfied time. we ended up arguing a bit on unworthy thing. Still, I felt lack of time. for sleep, for bath, for journal, for fam needs me, for work … perhaps, NEXT: reduce this outside breakfast to twice a week and plan it better.
  • fam night time: spouse suggested continue on end-game and I couldn’t refuse it strong enough. though I like the together time, I still ended up multitasking again || evening milestone or time spend: multitasking in the evening
  • finance: care for dad, education and retire finance
  • work: team engage: improve english to a level to join the conversation well || I hope to improve english (listen comprehensive ) better so I can be part of the joking and conversation. Develop common topic with the team e.g. sport, JP culture theater e.g. kabuki, museum art etc.
