    "Commitment: reach office by 7:59 a.m. every day.‎ - This commitment can be revoked or altered for a given day by writing a journal entry of the format: "(date) "revoked (in case of revoking) or new time (in case of updated reaching time)" e.g. "2018-10-25 revoked" or "2018-10-25 9:54 a.m." - notice period for revoking or designating new wakeup time for a given day is the office reaching time of that day minus 10 hours. (so e.g. if I am to reach office at 7:59 a.m., then I must put the journal entry designating the revoking or the updated office reaching time by 9:59 p.m. on the previous day) ‎- For Saturdays, the default value for the rule is "revoked". In other words, I am not obligated to go to office. But this is the default value, and can be overridden by a different time. ‎- Violation penalty per instance (i.e. per defaulted day): one Doctor You energy bar wasted into the garbage bin that day before 9:59 p.m. If this action is not carried out, the amount of the Doctor You energy bars to be wasted as a penalty for this commitment increases by one every six hours thereafter. ‎- All times stated by me in this journal entry are in Korean time zone and in accordance with zero offset from the time shown by the casio watch that I am wearing as I write this journal entry. - I am not allowed to change the time shown on my casio watch for the purpose of avoiding the penalty associated with this stickk commitment "
