Adrian’s Monday Starter : 36

What I’m reading : Ugh I haven’t read anything new! I have yet to finish Homo Deus. I have no excuse but to say I’ve been busy which basically means it’s not a priority. I know.

What I’m listening to: Clutter by The Minimalist Podcast

What I’m watching: Australian Survivor - Don’t judge, it’s highly entertaining and I feel that the Aussies are not as harsh with each other as the Americans. Jonathan LaPaglia does a stellar job as the host. I do keep getting his name confused with his brother Anthony. I’d rather watch this show than The Bachelor or The Bachelorette. Cringe.

A quote I’m pondering on: “There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved.” — George Sands

Go see: Logan - I only managed to see this on a plane. It’s a tad violent but that not a surprise but was is remarkable is that this is a profoundly hopeful film.

What I’m reading : I’ve been away and haven’t had a chance to read anything at all. I haven’t even completed Homo Deus yet! This is probably a boring, empty post but the highlight was the captivating movie I saw.

Go see: God’s Own Country - This is an exceptional film. Breathtaking, beautiful, tender and so heart-wrenchingly honest. I’m lost for words. Go see it.

A quote I’m pondering on: “If it scares you, it might be a good thing to try.”— Seth Godin

What I’m reading : Goals vs Systems by Scott Adams - A great mental model when it comes to assessing personal success.

What I’m listening to: The Complete Guide to Fasting by Ben Greenfield Fitness - This video/podcast is an interview with Dr Jason Fung, one of the authors of the book The Complete Guide to Fasting. I’ve been practicing intermittent fasting since 2013.

What I’m watching: Australian Survivor - I know, I know it’s crappy TV but I do mildly enjoy it.

A quote I’m pondering on: “How can I create something that critics will criticise?” — Seth Godin

What I’m reading : Ugh I haven’t read anything new this week except for a bit here and there which usually involves the newspaper (the print version). I’m also trying to finish the wonderful Homo Deus by Yuval Noah Harari. And the 2018 Ikea Catalog arrived in the mail! Oh my. I don’t buy anything. I just pour over it for hours.

What I’m listening to: Getting There | Tell Me Something I Don’t Know

What I’m watching: You Already Have Everything You Need

A quote I’m pondering on: Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek. — Barack Obama

Go see: Valerian — I know that many people including my husband didn’t like this movie. But I’m ok with it. I can’t say I “loved” it. I enjoyed it and appreciated what Luc Besson was trying to achieve. It is visually indulgent and pretty to look at. But the narrative is a bit of a let down. If you forgive the movie for that then it’s an entertaining epic. Maybe if Luc Besson hadn’t created The 5th Element then this might be amazing and have a higher than 50% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

What I’m listening to: Medicine | Tell Me Something I Don’t Know

What I’m watching: Black Mirror on Netflix — It’s hard to comment on the entire series because each episode is a new story. It’s a hit and miss sometimes. But generally mind boggling.

What I’m trying to master: Kettlebell swings

A quote I’m pondering on: In a crowded marketplace, fitting in is a failure. In a busy marketplace, not standing out is the same as being invisible. — Seth Godin
