Week 68 โ€“ Back from Break๐Ÿคธโ€โ™‚๏ธ

 ·  โ˜• 6 min read

So I came back from my break on Saturday, after resting completely for 6 days, and the last 6-7 days were very rejuvenating, to say the least.

I want to dive deep and write a lot of things about my break but then again I don’t think I remember everything :P

Personal Highlights

  • Indoor Updates

I spent a good amount of time with my family and had a lot of conversations with my sort of uncle but he is like my elder brother.

Normally in my day-to-day life, I rarely have conversations and I mostly consume what others say on the internet, so, it was a very novel experience for me.

In the process, I did learn a lot as I converted more of my thoughts into words and I also did spot a lot of gaps in my own knowledge, which wouldn’t have happened if I did not have the conversations in the first place.

It also goes without saying that I tried to communicate(Propagate๐Ÿ˜ˆ) a lot of my unconventional ideas across the table ๐Ÿ˜œ

But IDK how well it went across because they are nice to me and did not backfire on anything that I stated๐Ÿ˜… and so I did the same on their opinion of astrology, I was tempted to counter a lot of the points but then it seemed sort of manipulative to only let my ideas win all the time and so I did what any good listener would do, just listen without judgment.

Well that was about it for the indoor updates, since it was Durga puja here so I went out a lot too with family and once with a friend.

  • Outdoor Updates

When I was out I observed a lot.

I did not write down my observations else I could have shared a lot more, but most of my observations were around Psychology and Group Behaviorism.

Hanging out with a group of friends gives people a sense of power like nothing else.

People are very different when they hangout alone vs when they hangout with a group of friends.

I also think there is a strong link between number of friends and their behavior but I don’t have/know about such data yet, so, I will keep it aside for the future.

As much as I love reading books, my favorite way of deciphering people still remains observing them and deducing conclusions, I know this sounds very judgemental but I think this is wayyyy better than judging people based on their clothes ๐Ÿ’€ Something which I am not very good at tbh.


Beside all these I did a lot of walking, not as much compared to 2-3 years back, as even when I was inside home I did walk a lot more than usual because there weren’t a lot of things that I could do.


This also lead to me sort of ‘oversleeping’, Idk if oversleeping is possible physiologically, but I did sleep a lot more than 8 hours in the night and on top of that I slept during afternoons too, almost daily. ๐Ÿ˜ถ

Thoughts from the past week

Book Highlights๐Ÿ“š

I did read quite a lot last week compared to other weeks but I feel like I could have read more, anyway here are few Highlights








From The Body: A Guide for Occupants By Bill Bryson


Movies ๐ŸŽฅ


Series ๐Ÿ“บ


Creators ๐Ÿคน๐Ÿป

I did come across a few people but their shared knowledge are yet to make a difference, if they do then I will share ๐Ÿ˜ค

App(s) ๐Ÿ“ฑ

I did a lot of research on Notion yesterday after coming back home, I wanted to share a few but I haven’t tried them out fully and almost all of them need paid plans so it’s hard to recommend for now but if you want to make websites from your notion site easily then maybe give a try. It’s 10$ per month though which I think is a bit too much :( but it gives full CSS customizability.

I am gonna find ways to implement the same manually with coding in the coming days, so stay tuned ๐Ÿ˜ค

Memes/Edits from the last week ๐Ÿ’

๐Ÿ‘‰ย Hereย ๐Ÿ‘ˆ

Goal(s) for the next week ๐Ÿฅ…

  • Migrate portfolio site to the notion page instead of a dedicated website.
    Btw check out the website before it goes away: TRB’s Portfolio Separate Site
  • Send out at least 100-200 emails for octacast, so far I haven’t done it seriously yet I don’t know why but the podcast that I shared inspired me quite a lot and I want to give it a serious try.
