Week 27 โ€“ Happy New Year 2021

 ·  โ˜• 4 min read

This year’s first blog is delayed by a day ๐Ÿ˜„ great ๐Ÿ˜–

Sorry for the delayed blog, I was busy reading and overthinking yesterday XD

Thereโ€™s a small gift for yโ€™all somewhere in the end of the blog, so continue reading ๐Ÿคซ

My job interview was supposed to happen way before, and this blog was supposed to come out yesterday with the results

But as it turns out, life isnโ€™t that predictable.

But now I am finally writing this after the interview:

I am glad I did not publish this blog yesterday and kept you all in anticipationโ€ฆ

Thereโ€™s a saying that goes like โ€œdon’t count your chickens before they hatchโ€ and in the last 2 weeks I did not only count them, but I fed them grazed em and raised an entire farm in my head.

Personal Highlights

  • Since this year started midway through the week, I am going to skip my habit stat sharing ritual for this week and keep this blog short like the last one.

    However if you want to know my final week habit progress you can check the spreadsheet that I embedded last week.
    PS: everything went downhill
  • The past week all I did was overthink about my job meeting and made sort of imaginary convos in my head that I would say and convince them to gimme a high salary XD
  • Also I wasnโ€™t able to read anything throughout the week as my mind kept drifting but yesterday I completed an entire book [110 pages long] and guess the book โ€ฆโ€ฆโ€ฆ

It was Negotiate like an Avalonian: An arsenal of techniques to negotiate better salaries, deals and funding! XD

I mean its not everyday that you get to read a book by the CEO of the company that you are going to apply for, on negotiating salary.


The book that I read, did not come in any use.

Thoughts from the past week

A lotttttttttttttttttt

One of them being


Amazon Bestseller Book section is whack โ€ผ

Social Media updates

Ok here comes the truly sad part of the blogโ€ฆ

I stopped working on music mashup video midway through the week because I got into editing the sample video.

I will try and complete it slowly now, once all these job shit is out of my mind.
