Week 57 โ€“ Welcome August ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

 ·  โ˜• 7 min read

Happy Friendship Day ๐Ÿ˜ to everyone reading this on the 1st of August๐Ÿ˜Œ Rest of you HFD, I guess ๐Ÿ™„

Personal Highlights

So, this week was quite good too in terms of me keeping up with basics ๐Ÿ“ฟ

A few small things happened this week which I can’t exactly remember because I think I forgot to note them down ๐Ÿ˜ด But I will try and share them below as they come in my mind


I did read almost everyday and made a bunch of highlights which I will share below.
The book that I have been reading is ReWork: Change the Way You Work Forever and I have finished almost 50% of it already.

Check reading progress of Rework here

Oh btw I got paid by Amazon this week ๐Ÿฅณ for sharing links on my blog
I got paid a total of โ‚น1086/- ๐Ÿ˜Ž

This is the first time that I got paid for affiliate linking, so yeah 1 year ka mehnat ๐Ÿคง


I did work out for longer durations of time this week, almost 30+ minutues everyday except yesterday. I wasnโ€™t feeling like it so I did only 15mins ๐Ÿ‹๏ธโ€โ™€โ€ Stil,l I think it is not bad as long as I donโ€™t break my schedule.

For the first half of the week, I tried waking up early and it sorta worked but in the 2nd half of the week I shifted to walking up late ๐Ÿฅถ

Idk why its easier for sleep schedule to be delayed than it is for it to be ummm is their any Antonym for delay?

What I mean is that it’s easier for me to switch to sleeping late and waking up late than to sleep early and wake up early.

But waking up early makes me feel 10x better.So, I guess I will try and change my sleep schedule.

Business Updates

The Good
The best thing about this week was perhaps everyday after waking up I had this one goal of working on stuff for octalancer, somedays I was able to do what I wanted to and somedays I failed but just having something to look forward to once you wake up is itself very rewarding and makes me happy.

The Bad
We have been making very slow progress and I am the only one on the team who doesnโ€™t have any other thing to worry about, just this. So, despite having other members who are good at other things, I feel like I should be the one doing a lot of their stuff for now ๐Ÿฅถ

The ugly
Bank account about to go blank ๐Ÿ’€ if we don’t find clients this coming weekโ€ฆ.

Thoughts from the past week

So, I published the 5th episode of my podcast yesterday making it the 5th episode for the month of July ๐Ÿ“†

In this episode I talked about โ€ฆ well you can listen yourself and find out โ€ฆ.

Btw remember I wrote about making a separate automated website for my blogs and Guess what [@Rohit]( helped me make it. By help, I mean he did all the coding stuff and even got on call to explain to me how everything is implemented.

So, a big thanks to him and from now on you can find all the episodes along with links of popular streaming platforms on

My Favourites from the Week

Book Highlights๐Ÿ“š

I made a lot of highlights and so a bit confused with which to share ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

I think, I should prolly link the Goodreads highlights part ๐Ÿ˜Œ Perks of using a kindle.

Movies ๐ŸŽฅ

  • Space Jam: A New Legacy
    So, like I said last week I watched Space jam last Sunday and finished it on Monday night ig. Anyway it was decent, the acting was far better than the one done by Michael Jordan in the first part.

It’s crazy how much tech has changed in the last 25 years and how much better this movie is visually.

Also, I liked the fact that they replaced a hole in the ground with a server room XD

I donโ€™t have anything else to say, itโ€™s a decent watch if you want to watch this type movie. I wouldnโ€™t recommended to anyone tbh ๐Ÿ˜

Yes they released the 2nd part and @ansu_here reminded me to watch it ๐ŸฅŸ

I liked the ending of the movie thanks to the director for making it a 2 part series instead of stuffing everything in a single movie, the movie gave nice and slow 80s vibe ๐Ÿ‘Œ
Watch if you are a Batman fan.

App(s) ๐Ÿ“ฑ

Chrome extension to switch between gmail accounts

Google Account-switcher

So, I made a public playlist of all my liked songs in a new spotify account and so I used this to bring playlist from my real acc to this newer one

Backup your Spotify playlists

If you want to backup everything in your spotify then this might be a nice site ๐Ÿ‘‡

Backup your entire spotify

Export Kindle Highlights to Notion
I once shared a python script which could do the same, well someone forked a chomr extension out of it.

Songs ๐ŸŽถ

Liked a lot of songs this week. You can check the first 10-15 songs from this playlist which also happens to be my first official spotify public playlist ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Hereโ€™s the link for it if you want to open it in the app

Podcast(s) ๐ŸŽ™

Aur nhi sun rha "The psychology podcast" bahut saare ads daal dete hain ๐Ÿค’

My first ever listen to carpool critics ๐Ÿ˜ณ and I liked it v much ๐Ÿ˜Œ They are not comic book nerds so, they did not go in depth but they did talk about story telling, writing and technical stuff, which I liked a lot.

Episode should be have been titled as stomach brain connection.

Lmao. They did not get a lot of the things in the movie but I still liked their take and almost honest comparison

Memes/Edits from the last week ๐Ÿ’


Goal(s) for the next week ๐Ÿฅ…

Again, I donโ€™t have any goal. I just hope we get some clients ๐Ÿฅถ๐Ÿ˜…
Warna bankruptcy moment ๐Ÿค•
