Journal #13

“Listen to that voice that tells you what you could do. Nothing will define your character more than that.” – Steven Spielberg

Journal Day 13, March 10th

So today is a Sunday again, and as usual it was the rest day. No exercise or jog. No work or blog.

Woke up, showered later in the afternoon, read a book (I recommend reading HBR On Strategic Marketing, the case studies are actually interesting).

In the evening played a little tennis until I hit the ball on the other side and had to sign off for the day. I suppose that was the only little exercise (plus some skipping rope) I got today. Then went off with family to have a cup of coffee. It is actually so peaceful to have that and talk about random things! Try it!

Now I am watching motivational videos on YouTube (Highly recommended: No Excuses). Also watched another episode of Black Lightning on Netflix today (This is a rather contrast)

How as your day?


Journal #10

“It always seems impossible until it’s done.” – Nelson Mandela

Finally the 10th day, March 6th.

Today started okay with some Freelectics. Then went to college for a couple of classes, it feels like it is getting boring by the day. On that note, I still need to throw a birthday party for people, maybe watching ‘Captain Marvel’?

Then went to office with my cousin brother (he manages the unit in Kolkata). Office was pretty normal today, replying to mails, samples were getting ready and should be dispatched by tomorrow, reporting a few complaints to supplier and thinking more on how to get things organized.

At times it feels like the pressure from doing both the college work and office work is too much. I suppose that was the reason my mind just went blank after returning home from office. So I just kept to myself, had dinner and watched youtube.

Still, Never give up. Keep moving forward!

Something just like this.

This is an amazing song, and it has been going on in my head since the start of the day now. 😀

Something just like this – Youtube

I’ve been reading books of old
The legends and the myths
Achilles and his gold
Hercules and his gifts
Spiderman’s control
And Batman with his fists
And clearly I don’t see myself upon that list

But she said, where’d you wanna go?
How much you wanna risk?
I’m not looking for somebody
With some superhuman gifts
Some superhero
Some fairytale bliss
Just something I can turn to
Somebody I can kiss

– The Chainsmokers and Coldplay
