It's been 2 weeks since I started my little challenge, and the first week went well. I finished reading a book and didn't procrastinate the whole weekend. However, I started to create my own little "loopholes" to the whole "only use Youtube for education" thing.
I'd watch a bunch of college videos and say to myself "I'm getting advice about college, so that still counts as educational!" But then I'd go off into watching "first day of college" vlogs and college acceptance reactions, which isn't educational in any way whatsoever.
From that point on, I didn't completely go off into watching random videos, but I watched so many DarkMatter2525 videos and claimed to myself it was informative and educational. So I technically wasn't breaking any rules. However, it still distracted me somewhat, and I'm gonna create consequences for myself because I'm very self-disciplined
For getting a bit off track this week, I'm going to add 9 more days (so my new end date will be May 10th, 2019) and I'll now be adding a rule that states that I can't watch more than 3 Youtube videos a day (and they still have to be informative, motivational, or educational in some way).
Sorry that this post is short and boring, but it's late and I'm pretty tired. Not much else happened and I didn't break my oath that much, except I used Reddit to post a question to get some advice on something. Well, that's all for now, and I may just post a huge blurb of word vomit in another post tomorrow. Adios!!
