Hi friends,
We finished a month of 2021 already!
I hope you had a great first month. January is always special. It has the promise of a new beginning and the reality check of overambitious resolutions coming to a grinding halt.
Now that delusions like eating healthy and sleeping on time are behind us, we can go back to cosying up with our 4am friend, our smartphones. I know I have. ugh! But that is also, in part, because—🥁drumroll
I completed one month of writing everyday!🥳

Announcement 📣
I am trying out comments on the blog this month. I encourage you to post your reactions and comments to my articles under them.
And you can do it anonymously if you wish!
There is no way to figure out who the commenter is (Commento is extremely privacy focused, which means your data stays away from Big Tech and I get to read what you think🙂)
I made a video to show you how to comment 👀 watch it below👇

Something happened on Wall Street this week and the internet is losing its mind. My interest was piqued because Reddit was at the centre of it.

It sounded like the future was finally here.
I am following this bit by bit and trying to understand.
The below tweet is a good place to start if you can read English.
Also watch this video, which seems very English.

News organisations are calling this moment historic but they only dispense information in hyperboles, so you can’t take them too seriously.
But when the world’s second richest man, calls out for scams in the stock market when his net-worth is only soaring, it might be worth taking notice.

That’s it from me this week. Hope your Sunday has been great so far.
I’d absolutely love to hear from you.
Just press reply and start typing.
See you next Sunday. Stay slant.
Sumeru🙂
