(Inspired by Tim Ferriss's “5-Bullet Friday,” a list of what he is enjoying or pondering.)

What I’m reading  —

In the World, the second book of Gorky's autobiographical trilogy. Though still live a hard life, different from My Childhood, Gorky met more people and won chances to have a broad view over the world.

... (books) gradually became as necessary to me as vodka to the drunkard. They
showed me a new life, a life of noble sentiments and strong desires which incite
people to deeds of heroism and crimes. I saw that the people about me were fitted
for neither heroism nor crime. They lived apart from everything that I read about in books, and it was hard to imagine what they found interesting in their lives. I had
no desire to live such a life. 


What I'm watching —

A Brighter Summer Day (1991), directed by Edward Yang, based on a true story, primarily on a conflict between two youth gangs, a 14-year-old boy's girlfriend conflicts with the head of one gang for an unclear reason, until finally the conflict comes to a violent climax. It's a movie about the tragedy of idealists since the world won't always pay back your effort.


Podcast I’m listening to —

Joe Rogan Experience #1309 - Naval Ravikant is an entrepreneur and angel investor, a co-author of Venture Hacks, and a co-maintainer of AngelList.

I've listened it three times, there are so many inspiring topics:

  • The ability to start over.  
  • Read for understanding.
  • Everyone could be rich.
  • Creative thinking distinguish human and AI.
  • Basic understanding other than memorizing.


New favorite app —

Ketchup lets you catch up with the people and the topics that you care about on your own terms. I used it for less procrastination on Twitter and Reddit.


Quote I’m pondering —

“We have two lives, and the second begins when we realize we only have one.”

― Confucius
