Welcome to the last blog of the month, cant believe we are entering the anniversary month in one day 😳
Why did I stop sharing my habit updates on Instagram ?
Anyway this week was sort of an normal week where I did get most of my habits and work done but still feels like a failed week because I failed to give time to my personal project everyday.
Which resulted in me dropping a few of my habits by the end of the week.
Which is def not the reason as to why I stopped sharing my updates on Instagram.
Tt had more to do with the nature of the work, you see it gets really boring sharing the same kind of story everyday on insta and its also like people stop caring after a certain point of time now I for one did not post them for the interest of the people in the first place but over the time as I saw responses to the story I kinda got a bit more motivated 😌
Same with the blogs tbh but the blogs have far more unforeseen value than simple habit updates but anyway I guess I wont be sharing my stats to Instagram for a while it was fun and I did it for 75% of the month if I am not wrong but now I am just bored / tired of it.
This followed the same trajectory as reading lol.
However last week I remember saying that I would try out the waking up app but I wasn’t able to give it a try as I found myself using the normal timer more sometimes because I wasn’t able to find the earbuds, sometimes because they were charging and other times because I simple didn’t feel like putting something into my ear before meditating.
This is the one habit were I have showed complete devotion and managed to keep up with it almost everyday, I mean I took the rest days as seriously as I took the normal day, thus maintaing my streak of working out as per the app everyday starting from the 1st of this month.
I finished html basics this week from codecademy
and then didn’t feel like starting css, idk why!
Maybe because the pending edit kept screaming at the back of my head.
Same freelancing gigs like last week but I somehow managed to be a lil more efficient this week which is obvious given that I am doing the almost same type of work over a repeated period of time.
Work was also one of the reason behind my failure to dedicate time to the mashup edit and if you have been following the blogs for a while now then you should know that this is a reccuring theme of the blogs XD
Where I blame my work for my lack of commitment to my personal projects.
Personal Project Updates
But I decided to end that or atleast tried so by the end of the week when I found myself making zero progress on the mashup I decided to take it a bit more seriously and I stopped other habits to make this my number one priority and I did manage to make some progress.
Now I need to continue this week too because I don’t see myself saying no to external work so I should manage some way to give the personal project a bit more time even if it comes at the cost of me sacrificing some of my habits for a while.
Thoughts from the past week
Why is it so boring to talk about positive things?
In social media, no matter what we see, there is always a hint of negativity attached to it,
Not only that but most conversations we have with friends have elements of uncertainty and some sort of negativity in them, its like we have been caring for our survival for so long that it is now embedded in us to always find things to worry about XD
Imagine how dull a conversation will be if two people talked about just positive things lol
Even if they did, they would bring “how negative people are trying to demean them or stuff,” which is, yep you gussed it a negative statement XD
So no matter what we talk about being 100% positive is just not humanly possible 🤐
Its fine to have god complex in private but not in public
Social Media updates
Wasn’t active much this week but managed to write quite a lot of useless tweets nonetheless
My Favourites from the Week
Haven’t been reading anything other than books lately :/
you create your own reality by choosing what you pay attention to.
You only waste time if you’re not intentional about how you spend it.

It was okayish I guess, idk I didn’t like it much also I am not a huge mortal kombat fan or anything, I just like the story because of the games.
I could see elements from revenge of scorpio animated mortal kombat movie but between the two I would prefer that one, that felt like like a truer verion.
Also I don’t usually complain about characters but I hated lord raiden’s character in the movie, in the animated one which I watched last week raiden was very calm and composed but in this one he was just kinda annoying.
Anyway, in conclusion don’t watch the movie if you don’t know what mortal kombat is.
Yep finally player a game after really a long time, just wanted to get a bit more immersed in the mortal kombat story 😅
Played it for like 2hrs in total I think not a big fan of single-player matches as they are either v easy to win and if I increase the difficulty, then they are very hard😩
I prefer playing such fighting games with irl friends 😌
Installed an extension called tab limiter and limited myself to using just one tab, Got my work done faster than usual 😌— TRB (@teeaarbee) May 28, 2021
A new experimental section, not something I can use every week but will try whenever I can 😋
So I bought an expensive ass nail cutter from amazon of some Japanese brand after I somehow managed to convince myself into believing that I need it lol
But surprisingly enough, it managed to impress me, and it feels pretty worth it tbh 😌
This is the one that I bought, I am not a huge nailtrimmer enthusiast so idk if it was actually worth it or not but I remember watching a youtube video where they said to use the ones with carbon blade and this one has carbon steel blade so I guess its fine.
I bought it from amazon but it is 10rs cheaper on flipkart and nykaa I think. Also for some weird reason, if I got 2 of these, then it would cost me 260rs reach instead of 370 🤐I have a nail cutter set which I use for my toenails, so I didn’t feel like investing more in it.
Memes/Edits from the last week 🐒
Btw did you know a few people unsubscribed to my emails in the last 30days 🤧😤
Goal(s) for the next week 🥅
At least an hour every day on the edit! No matter what
And I am limiting myself to just this one habit so that I don’t fail
Btw in the month of may I got back to working out and did it everyday [Excpet the rest days which was every 4th day]
No matter what happened or what I was into I did not skip working out on work days and I am very happy about it. Obviously I am going to continue this habit for the next month too but just wanted to share that atleast there was one big win the month of may 😌
Quote(s) from the week📃
Finishing projects is part of what it means to deliver high quality work.— James Clear (@JamesClear) May 19, 2021
You can't be high quality if your perfectionism prevents you from finishing.
The longer you delay, the more the quality of the experience degrades.
Gonna use this tweet as an excuse if you don’t like the meme mashup edit 🤭🤭
Thanks for reading this week’s blog.
