Day 267 – Anger, Civ V and OCD

Sunday, November 20th 2016

It’s snowing so much outside! I’m happy.

Today was a good one, but not the most interesting. It is to be expected when it’s the weekends though.

I woke up later than usual and decided not to go to church. Instead, I made a bible study on anger, since I can easily get angry, so I needed some advice on that. I read Ephesians 3:26-32 : “”In your anger do not sin” : Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold. Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need. Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption. Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.”

Those verses helped a lot, so I’m glad I searched for those.

Other than that, I studied a little bit of math with help from my brother. I understand better on how to know if a function is—I’m not sure what the French to English translation is in this context, so it might be wrong—rising or descending, by just looking at the equation.

Afterwards, I spent my time on the server just trying to figure out what I wanted to do for two hours (didn’t see the time go by so fast). I finally decided to simply play some Civilization V, since it’s been a while. Germany asked me a ton of times to have open borders and to have a research agreement with me, but when I asked for a declaration of friendship, he denied, but I accepted his open border treaty anyway, and he took that opportunity to declare war on me. Though the troops he sent were pretty weak. The strongest military he had were near his capital, so luckily I didn’t have to worry all that much. He then asked for a peace treaty along with my horses, and valuable resources. Of course I said no, so then he asked for just a peace treaty, I said no again, but then I saw I was losing while trying to take his capital, so I agreed on a peace treaty. I’m now setting up my military to attack him now though, since all he does is declare war on people, so might as well take him down now, since he’s the strongest. 

I haven’t went on the treadmill this weekend, and my parents told me I should. I think it’d be best if I just do Monday-Friday, since the weekend I don’t really have the energy for it; it’s kind of just my relaxing time. But in terms of helping my possible OCD, it didn’t do much, but it does take time (although I still think exercise has nothing to do with this). For a couple of days I did it less, simply because I was questioning as to why I was checking the tap, so I was distracted by thinking about why I would be checking the tap instead of checking it, but now that I seem more comfortable with the idea of not knowing yet, I went back to checking often again. I still check the upstairs tap often, but not the downstairs tap, only because my family is there so I don’t want them looking at me checking it every few seconds, so I only check the tap when someone is there if I have an excuse.

I’m going to watch a little bit of YouTube and then go to bed.

That’s all for today.
