With the end of the year closing in it is time to reflect.
Becoming a hengst is hard but worth the effort.

Time for a bit of positivity.
Celebrate and share what improved so others may learn from it.

I'll start.
I got more /fit/ by doing a daily walk and some sports every other weekend.
My art got better because I studied (you need to know how things are to recreate them), listened to critics (because the own view is always biased), and practiced (because you can't get it right on the first try except dumb luck and even then you can't recreate it consistently).

I got more into social. Biology, neurology, psychology, and economics helped me along with observation and trial and error.

Success is difficult, its deliberate. Perhaps at a single time in one's life they might stumble into success at one thing, but the other 9999 times and things its a painstaking and demanding process.
You have to prepare to be successful. The available resources are your body, mind, and soul/spirit, and all three need to be maintained and developed. Find the time, make the time, because now is the time.

Of course. I spent the day assembling a table-saw, a mitre saw, a workbench, a charging relay, a tool dock, a pair of bracketed saw hoers, and a tv for poners

I jogged up and down my street at 7PM because I didn't feel like I'd exercised enough today.
I assembled my Raspberry Pi Retropie and it works
This year, I wrote over 100,000 words of pony fanfiction in just one story.

Made pasta basically from scratch (i.e. hard noodles, homemade red sauce, onion chunks) for the first time yesterday. Finally ordered a ThinkPad so I can dedicate a computer to learning and operating exclusively in Linux. Got through three units in the Linux Bible 9th Edition. Moved out of my family's house and got a job that's (almost, like five hours away from it) full time, and am paying my debts slowly but surely. Might even have a chance at getting a nighttime janitorial job for extra dosh. Renovated the new bedroom, and finally fixed my biological clock so I naturally get up before 8AM each day.

I think 2019 might turn out okay...wish me luck in continuing my progress.

running on the assumption that's honest encouragement and not sarcasm because muh fragile ego
What distro is that? That looks nice. Though I'm thinking of sticking to a full on terminal only kinda gig for educational and practice purposes.

It is encouragement poner, this is the reason I posted a Linux screenshot.
And surprised ponies because I am unable to wake up without an alarm and to do some of the things you just mentioned.
So, you are an example to me.
>What distro is that?
SolydXK running on top of Debian 9 Stable.

I knew the layout seemed a little familiar to me. Well thanks for the distro - I might give that a try on the thinkpad. That or I could be a massive faggot and attempt to use Hardmode Linux to practice the terminal, bwahaha.

>you are an example to me
Pic related. I'm nobody special, just an autist who bags people's groceries for a living and unironically gets aroused watching fat people struggling to stand upright...

How dir you fix your sleep?

Ironically after months of trying and failing to, alcohol was one of the major factors.

1) If you have blackout blinds/curtains, don't use them. Leave them open overnight.
2) If possible, sleep in a position that allows maximum sunlight exposure, preferably direct.
3) Never try to sleep earlier, only later - forcing yourself to sleep an hour early will be more difficult to adjust to than staying up 2 hours lster each night until you loop back around.
4) Set alarms for sunrise or shortly after it - even if you snooze it at first, your mind will be alerted when your alarm is nearing its noise based on the relative time of day if you get woken up by the alarm often. Pavlovian conditioning basically.
5) If you drink, drink your last drink before bed, around 8 hours before you have to wake up.

The layout is typical KDE with classic menus.
SoliydXK is based on the version of Debian "Stable", meaning is solid rock.
Warning, its default look is terrible and it needs some tweaking to make it look cute.
