I hope I don’t take too long to finish writing this as I am already starting this a bit late but unlike last week I am actually writing this on Sunday.
Last Sunday I decided to watch logan to finish re-watching the xmen series which resulted in the blog getting delayed by days 🥶
This week I was re-watching the Sam Raimi Spiderman trilogy and I am yet to watch the 3rd movie of the trilogy.
Which will be a treat to myself for writing and publishing this blog.
More on old movies re-watching in thoughts section below.
Did not quite feel like reading ego is the enemy so I started reading my saved article and blogs from pocket
Read more on first principal [Article linked below] and decided to buy a book on it, I was aware of the book for a while now and as soon as I saw the book was on a offer I bought it for 149rs XD
The book is called The Great Mental Models Volume 1: General Thinking
Work was quite uncertain this week which led to me spending more time on it and not getting anything done. This was also the reason behind delayed week 38 blog
I have been sleeping quite a lot lately so I started to use alarm clock to guide my waking time, I personally hate the alarm clock and don’t find it useful at all.
I am good at waking up naturally that is after I get 8 Hours of full sound sleep.
But lately I have been sleeping a bit more than 8, so I decided to bring alarm back in my life (just for the next 3-4 days)
Thoughts from the past week
Aight so I want to share my thoughts on re-watching old movies.
I personally find it very therapeutic to re-watch old movies which I loved watching as a kid/teen.
In a world where there is a new series coming out every week it seems foolish to watch something that we have already watched, I mean don’t we all want to have more experiences.
But there is something very soothing about watching old films maybe it’s the predictability factor or maybe it’s the fact that we can enjoy those extra details which we missed/ didn’t have enough experience as a child to notice.
I don’t know its just very relaxing to watch a old movie.
For me its usually superhero movies. But I know of few others who enjoy old classics, Two of such people that I remember quite nicely in my head are Casey neistat[Evident while watching his old NY vlogs] and tim ferris[Heard him say in a chapter of tools of titans].
Maybe you can give it a try too.
Rewatch the movies which you watched 10-12 years ago and I am sure you will notice a lot more than you did in your first/second view.
Here’s a meme which I just made as a tribute to the old spiderman movies which I grew up watching
I have watched spiderman 3 more than 10 times as a kid because back in 2006-07 when it came out I only had its disk in my Desktop and so I used to rewatch it again and again XD
Social Media updates
Funfact: Varun Mayya was the first person to like this meme and he did it as soon as I uploaded it on insta yesterday
My Favourites from the Week
Keepa (amazon price tracker)
Chrome extension linked above
Its available for android too and has a customized telegram bot 🤯
I have been using it for a while now but recently I logged into it and connected it to my telegram and email and also imported my wishlist in it, so I get a message anytime an item gets a lightning deal.
I have shared this before but this time I came across it while watching spiderman 2 and I absolutely loved the scene.
Been listening to a lot more of REN evensince I came across his song in a meme.
Memes/Edits from the last week 🐒
Goal(s) for the next week 🥅
Try and get work done by evening.
Its hard to follow a goal like this esp when you are working from home on a startup.
But still I will try and do it this week and so it will be my only goal
