Order 4/5 – I didn’t do much with Order when it comes to school, but I did clean up a big mess of papers that had been gathering in my basement for the past month. Overall, I think I did a pretty good job with Order today.
Resolution 4/5 – As of writing this, I haven’t done too much painting, but I plan on doing more in a bit. I had to do something that I’ve never done before with a figure, which is to do a base coat of black paint for the whole figure. The reason being that metallic paints don’t show up well on the normally grey surface of the figure, so painting metal portions black beforehand really helps them pop. Unfortunately, the entirety of this figure is going to be metal, so I did the whole base coat before starting anything else.
Confidence 1/5 – I didn’t work on this virtue at all today, unfortunately. I don’t know how much I can do to work on it over the weekend, as most of my issues with this one come from school. I guess I’ll just have to make up the deficit over the next school week.
Health 5/5 – I ate more today than I did yesterday, and I also tried to pick a more balanced variety of foods. I also did some simple exercises, though it was unfortunately too cold for a walk tonight.
Responsibility 1/5 – I also neglected this virtue today. I didn’t get any homework done, so tomorrow night will probably be pretty busy. I’m not too worried about it, though, as I don’t have much work to do this weekend anyway.

I love the figure you’re painting! That’s going to look super cool when you finish, can’t wait to see it. I’ve also struggled with responsibility/getting work done this weekend. But honestly, I think that even if it makes things stressful on Sundays, taking time off from thinking about school on the weekends is important and beneficial.
That figure looks cool already, so I can’t wait to see the finished product. I also struggle with getting any homework done on Fridays and Saturdays, but as long as nothing is too pressing it should be fine. Weekends exist for the purpose of giving us time to avoid burnout, so taking a rest day should be normalized. Good luck with the rest of your virtues!
