Wow, can’t believe we are here, the 100th blog….
I went through my older blogs and I noticed that one trend used to be - me being proud about being consistent for the number of weeks of writing. Crazy how I dropped it over time as writing blogs has become a part of my life.
Thoughts on Writing 100 Weekly Blogs 😳
I usually place the thought section below but since this is a special blog I feel like showcasing it first before I go about giving my week’s update.
So yeah, it’s a crazy achievement, given the fact that I was only barely consistent for six months with my memes. Despite getting crazy attention and likes, I wasn’t able to continue with it.
But with the blog, since there was no one to judge, and my motivation is mostly intrinsic, I have managed to write 100 frickin blogs.
And in the future, even if I stop writing, I will always have this number to brag about 😎
I did not really have the week number back in my mind throughout the week or I could have lived a more deliberate week, I guess, because this week wasn’t that great in terms of me being productive or having a great time, all in all, this week was mid.
- Gym: I felt a bit weak this week, could be because I have been losing weight in the background for the last 2 months.
- Morning Run: Yikes! did not improve compared to last week but at least I haven’t stopped going for runs… yet!
Wasn’t a very mindful week tbh. I spent a big chunk of my week staying distracted and thinking to myself that playing Batman Arkham Knight was better than wasting time like this.
Once again, I continued reading comics this week, so yeah wouldn’t really consider that as learning unless we can consider knowing about fictional characters as knowledge.
Oops, I was supposed to start this but unfortunately, there wasn’t any solid incentive to re-start, but all these things might change next week as I have a new web dev project to work on.
Optimization and Organization
Did not really deliberately track this and I feel like I sort of undid some organization stuff this week, something which I need to work on more deliberately and maybe take advice from my first ever podcast episode.
Wow, it’s my 100th-week blog and so far the blog is only negative 😩
One of the co-founders of the agency where I work read my last week’s blog lmaoooo
And he assured me that I ain’t losing my job 😌
But yeah, this was the last week of working for an old client and from next week [this week] on I will be working on newer projects. In a way, I will be exposed to new challenges, I guess.
Sad news, Papaocus left octalancer, because he is moving to Bangalore and will be busy with his job over there ☹️
With just 30 days remaining for the domain expiry, the fate of Octalancer looks darker than ever.
I feel like making memes on someone who has recently passed away is quite disrespectful. It doesn’t matter whether is meme is funny or wholesome.

A new mega thread for the 2nd time in the same year??? 🙀
I haven’t finished reading the entire thread because duh 40 theories… but so far the thread follows a very Gurwinderish tone, so yeah good to go.
Once again I spent most of my time reading comics, so there isn’t any highlight to share this week.

I finished watching panchayat last Sunday after publishing the blog and I have to say the show is too wholesome to have such a sad finale, but just because its sad doesn’t make it bad and I for one am excited for the next season as it would be very interesting to see how the writers tackle the sadness part of the equation.
Comic trim (Android)
It’s an android comic reader app but the great thing about this app is that it tried to replicate comixology’s guided mode, and ‘try’ is the word of focus here because unlike kindle where the pannels are manually picked by interns this uses some form of algorithm to detect panel and auto zooms into them giving a nice fake guided mode experience. It fails around 70% of the time but when it works, it feels seamless.

I did listen to a podcast but I understood only like 40% of it so I don’t think it would be fair for me to share that here just because I listened to the entire thing.
