Week 94 โ€“ Having the time of my life

 ·  โ˜• 7 min read

Idk why, but I did not feel like writing the blog on Sunday. ๐Ÿ˜ท

And so naturally, the blog got delayed because that is what happens when you donโ€™t do the work on time, but anyway, hereโ€™s me hoping I donโ€™t end up killing the blog as I did with my podcast and newsletters.

Personal Highlights

It was a good week with fewer items on my to-do list compared to the last few weeks.

And fewer items led to me relaxing a bit more than usual and playing Batman Arkham origins all day long ๐Ÿค


  • Morning Run
    One of my most physically uplifting weeks.
    As I continued to go for runs along with the gym and this probably was the best week in terms of fitness ever since I started writing here.
    If all weeks went like this, I would be the fittest person on the planet XD


  • Reading: Continued reading Psychology of money and I don’t know if itโ€™s this book or if itโ€™s my guilt of spending too much that is somewhat making me conscious of my spending, if not frugal.
  • Listening: So I have been listening to this audiobook called
    Talking to Strangers
    And itโ€™s def. not what I thought it would be, and so far, it isn’t optimistic either ๐Ÿ˜–
    But still, it’s by Malcolm Gladwell, so I have continued listening to it despite a few uncomfortable stories in it because its a psychology book and its one of those books whose listening experience is much better than the reading experience because a lot of recording of what others have said has been used in it and reading it wouldn’t feel the same.

Optimization and Organization

I started using a physical to-do list notepad where I write a few things that need to be done using pen and paper while still continuing to use todoist for daily repetitive tasks like going to the gym, running finances, cleaning and all.

The reason why I got a physical todo list was because my todoist app is synced to notion and no matter what I tick off it gets recorded and so for smaller tasks like helping someone out or doing something just for once, I don’t want to write those down in todoist because it feels like extra work. Writing with pen and paper, however, feels very nice, and itโ€™s satisfying to tick things off. Once done, there is no app load time in that ๐Ÿ˜Œ

Job Update

Same as last week ๐Ÿ˜Œ

But next week [this week] is looking different ๐Ÿฅต

Business Updates

What last week seemed like an opportunity turned out to be sort of a scam XD anyway, we are still stagnant like we used to be ๐Ÿคง

But I brought a course this week on how to get US clients, quite sure that will solve all my problems and make a millionaire ๐Ÿ˜Œ

If not that I will still watch the course to pump up my hopes ๐Ÿ˜”

Thoughts from the past week

Last week as I played games in my free time, there was one thought going around my head: โ€œThis is so nice.โ€

Itโ€™s easy to miss out on the small things in life which make us happy, and having the freedom to play games during the day is undoubtedly among those.

It wasn’t actually the game that contributed so much to my happiness and well being. It’s more of the phase of life that I am in right now.

I have a nice stable job. Even though it doesn’t pay a lot, it’s enough to sustain my personal needs and pay my bills. Then there is my morning running, followed by the newest addition of the evening gym. I am getting the physical activity required for anyone of my age, along with the freedom of not worrying about the past or future. Nothing matters but now, and it’s so nice.

I wouldn’t change anything about my current lifestyle if I could. A part of me wishes life to be like this forever, where I wake up early, go for a run, come back, do my morning routine, work a bit then, play games, then go to the gym, come back and rest.

Is retiring by the age of 35 and gaining financial freedom worth losing all the comfort of this job phase? ๐Ÿ˜”


My Favourites from the Week โญ

Blogs/Articles ๐Ÿ“‘

The Social Media Trap - David Perell

Book Highlights๐Ÿ“š




From Psychology of money


Movies ๐ŸŽฅ

KGF Chapter 1


Lmao, I canโ€™t believe I watched it, the only reason being my friend had booked the ticket for KGF 2, and I couldn’t say no to them because they had come back to the town after a while and I needed some socializing.

Honestly, I felt the movie was hilarious and bad. It didn’t even feel like something of today, which made me realise how out of touch I am with classic hero Indian movies XD.

The movie is everything people mean when they say real life is not like a movie.

The movie also reminded me of a mutant from x-men whose superpower is getting lucky because that is what seemed like the power of the protagonist too

I did not enjoy the movie tbh, not until the very end when they ended it on a cliff hanger and that was the only thing I liked.

KGF Chapter 2


I finished kgf1 on Saturday night and then the very next day, I had to go for part 2, so I did not even watch the trailer and had no idea what to expect. All I knew was that he would get lucky XD.

Which he infact did, but this movie was much better than the first part and dare I say, it was entertaining too. Despite all the hero worship bs, this movie had a good story, even if it was unrealistic.

But like I said, despite everything which was off, including the SOUND of the music in the movie, it seemed like they invested all their money in VFX and forgot about the audio department. Still, despite that, the movie is enjoyable and more believable than the first part.


Batman Arkham Origins


I forgot to write about this game last week. I have completed the base game by last week and it was for the 3rd time if I am not wrong, but anyway, I played the game after like 5 years and still managed to enjoy it nonetheless ๐Ÿ˜Œ

App(s) ๐Ÿ“ฑ

I haven’t been trying out any new apps for the last weeks because I don’t feel the need to. I am happy with the apps that I have both on my PC and Phone and don’t feel the need to try out any new apps.

Songs ๐ŸŽถ

How was your week?๐Ÿง

Coming up next week๐Ÿฅ…

Maybe I will write the blog on time? I don’t know tbh, but I just hope that I don’t delay next weekโ€™s blog like I have been doing in the last few weeks.

Quote from the week๐Ÿ“ƒ

โ€œIโ€™ve been banging away at this thing for 30 years. I think the simple math is, some projects work and some donโ€™t. Thereโ€™s no reason to belabor either one. Just get on to the next.โ€ โ€”Brad Pitt
