Week 39 - Sat 24 Sep 2022 - Fri 30 Sep 2022
The last week of September 2022 was great in many ways as got to attend a lot of in-person and virtual events and received some money too from the Universe.
1. Daily Walking - I could only do about 11.4 kilometres during the course of this week. This is way below the average 20 kilometres that I need to complete every week but life happens. This being the last week of Sep-22 I could only do 61.42 kilometres which is the lowest amongst all the months till today starting from Jan-22. As this is the end of the third quarter this is the total amount of kilometres done to date - Q1 - 273.87 km; Q2 - 244.07 km; Q3 - 222.52 km. There has been a declining trend from the average of 250 km that needs to be achieved every quarter. Now I have to complete the whole of the remaining 259.54 kilometres in Q4. Good Luck with that Aashish.
2. Thank You - I took the count a little bit forward from 4001 to 24000 during the course of this week. I think I am giving rest to my fingers to press the button on the counter. Also, the counters that I bought from the China Mall are not meant to be used this much. I will have to visit them again to buy more of the counters.
3. Launch Events - I attended Youtube Shorts events for #MadeinMzansi at The Roof in Fourways as well as a virtual event of YT shorts. Then I also attended Oppo Reno 8 launch event at the Inanda Polo Club in Sandton. I also attended Samsung and Mustek experience centres in Midrand. Overall it's great to meet a lot of people during these events.
4. Entertainment - The more time went into planning to go on a small vacation at the start of October and didn't focus on watching the web series. Sometimes I like to wait and watch for the reviews to arrive and some series to go viral before watching them first myself. So this is the week where I watched more of YouTube rather than the streaming platforms.
5. YouTube - My YouTube PIN to confirm my address is still pending so that I can get the first payment but unfortunately I have not reached the threshold of USD 100 also so far. I will only be able to achieve it at the end of next month. I am doing my side but viral videos are not coming in my kitty. 1 viral video is needed once a year to make it for you initially. I have not counted how many I did in the month of Sep-22 but maybe I should track the progress to keep me motivated.
Thanks a lot to my readers for reading my journey till the end of the third quarter of 2022. I am grateful that will consistency I could read so many books, do things I wanted to do, didn't do any free blog posts and press releases unless I was invited to their launch events. I didn't receive any random stuff from any brands which I was always hopeful to receive in lieu of my press releases post on my blog but that never came causing me a lot of irritation. Now I am choosing whom to cover and whom not to and upfront I am telling my requirements which leads to the right expectations. No gain no pain is the formula that keeps me sane.
