I have watched the little known, critically mediocre, average box office, and immensely forgettable Humko Dewaana Kar Gaye 4 times this year. This is the only Indian film that I think has never been off of Netflix. I don’t know why. Somewhere in Netflix, it will show that since my family and I got Netflix […]
Right before quarantine started, I had just started going to my (free, at work) gym three times a week. I started doing /r/bodyweightfitness’s recommended routine. This was pretty good. I relied heavily on the TRX suspension system in order to do assisted push-ups, pull-ups, and rows, though. As we moved into lockdown, I thought it […]
I just finished the first four story arcs of the Ultimate Spider-Man comic series. I was surprised to find out that I’m 20% done with the entire run. I’ve only been reading it for ~20 minutes (1 issue) a day, so since it’s a 10 year run, I got through 2 years of comics in […]
All personal finance books are bad. This one is written with clearer language than most, and it gives some direction. But, it still gives too much. It still doesn’t grab me by the horns and say to DO THIS. It’s got some good explanations that helped me, so it was worth a read. But, if […]
The Clash at Demonhead is my favorite band.
I love Himesh Reshammiya. I was a baby when the glory days of the Hello Brother and Dulhan Hum Le Jayenge soundtracks came out. I was a kid when the chart-topping brilliance of Jhalak Dikhla Jaa and Afsana Bana Ke came out. People have underestimated his newer work, but his compositions are still brilliant and […]
I think if our extended quarantine has taught me anything, it’s that we emphasize our relationships too much. Hangouts are exhausting. It’s great to have a pool of people available, but keeping up is exhausting. There’s been less pressure to keep up and that’s okay. I think we’re a little brainwashed to have a bunch […]
Today, I thought about adding a “Things I Like” page to radhika.dev despite the fact that no one has ever asked me for this. I was just reading a few blogs that had this and thought I should add one, too. But what is the goal here? What is the end result of this? When […]
2014 was the year I fell in love with Alia Bhatt. Some actresses were my favorites before, but wow, I didn’t know what it meant to love a celebrity until I fell in love with Alia. I remember I saw her second film, 2 States, and was thoroughly unimpressed. But then the Highway trailers… I […]
Focus is just energy management. There is no need to shame oneself or adopt absurd rules to control when one is tired. Just take it easy. You’ll focus well again when you’re less tired.
