With winter right around the corner, errands are piling up and things at work are also picking up, so this is probably the best opportunity to….
Netflix has been putting out some good quality content lately. Recently I watched this movie…
I believe they shot this movie during the pandemic…2 actors…1 location. 🤯
To sum it up: it’s an argument and reconciliation movie. The amount of back and forth that takes place boggles the mind at first but after a while you catch up with the entire premise.
After watching this movie it got me thinking, with AI advancing more and more everyday…there is only a matter of time before Androids get integrated into society.
And although eventually this could cause some issues when they do start to adapt and evolve but in the initial phases people might be more keen on having an android partner as opposed to a human partner.
Humans often have a “Take take take never having to give anything back” type of mentality and this causes troubles with other humans but with an android it might pass at first.
Although it might seem like a blissful scenario, I wouldn’t want it to go down that way….
The coitus with an android would appeal to most humans both males and females. But if we end up going down this path, humans would turn into a superlative version of “self centered jerks”.
Lemme elaborate: Imagine you are a single individual right at this moment…
You have a set amount of values, habits, etc that have inculcated in you which you deem to be right and true.
When single individuals get into a relationship, if they aren’t too headstrong about things, they will at times have to eat the humble pie, rethink their values and mend it in order to incorporate another human being into their lives.
This is one place where I give credit to society: Society keeps us in check in order to be a decent/better human being in public. Society keeps us in check from exhibiting our animalistic/raw emotions out in public.
Think about this: People who you deem to be good and honest, would they always act the same way if they weren’t being observed and if their actions didn’t have any detrimental consequences to themselves. A percentage of the population would stay the same but the others would act out because with no eyes on them and no consequences for their actions they would be free to exhibit their true nature.
A couple of weeks ago.. Rachel got in touch with me and after catching up she told me an interesting story… Her cousin had just gotten married and his wife was nagging him to start trying to have a baby, even though he had expressed a desire to wait a few years before trying.
There are two ways to think about this scenario: one is the logical way and other is the cynical way.
The logical reasoning being: Couples try to have kids ASAP after getting hitched because the clock has started ticking and the objective is to raise the child and have it become independent by the time the parents retire.
On the flip side I know people who want to have kids ASAP because they want to be a stay at home parent, raising the kids plus they feel like the kid will be the anchor that will hold the family together.
I have seen couples who grin and bear it in their relationship because they don’t want their children to go through the trauma of living in a separated family.But assigning the kids the responsibility of being an anchor before even establishing your relationship is a 🍆 move.
Recently one of my friends who would always praise her accomplishments and try to belittle others in a sly manner recently married her long time BF.
Now since the BF was not of the same religion they had a hush hush wedding and went off the radar because they didn’t want society to know about this (you know the typical log Kya kahenge)
A month later, her mother publicized that her daughter had wed Xyz guy…in a effort to just get it out there and close the chapter.
When my parents spoke about this topic… I reiterated to them that it’s the person’s true nature/ character that should be paid attention to not the religion they belong to or the amount of assets they possess.
There is no hard and fast rule that if you married a same religion person you are guaranteed a happily ever after.
That conversation led to my cousin’s upcoming nuptials… which diverted to the fact that one of my other cousins who is a doctor hasn’t found a husband yet despite being 30.
Mom’s reasoning for this predicament was hilarious: Doctors snatch up suitable mates during the course of their program so that when they finish they can get hitched. This cousin being a bit reserved and an introvert missed her window of opportunity and that’s why she’s in this predicament.
This is hilarious to me for two reasons: when we are growing up and right around when puberty comes into play…
At that point parents want us to focus on our studies alone and to disregard any thoughts of romance.
And then when they feel like the time is ripe, they want the kids to find themselves a match…
Sometimes I imagine is this how parents think the process works…
Another good point the movie 👆made was that we are all damaged/carry baggage in some form or another…. we need to acknowledge said damage/baggage, accept it, work on it if possible and move on.
You have to fight through some bad days to earn the best days of your life…. Anonymous.
After finishing this new Netflix TV show…
I went back to slowly continue “Fruits Basket”
One of the episodes reminded me that we humans have an inherent tendency to mimic… Be it good or bad behavior.
In the show Tohru Dad’s polite behavior was mimicked by Tohru. In real life, the three musketeers mimicked their father’s demeaning behavior and they paid for during their lifetime. Mimicking is okay but self-reflection is also equally important.
Listening to someone vent with full attention, without judging and providing unsolicited advice is probably one of the best gifts you could give someone in this day and age.
We check up on people for 3 reasons:
We care about someone
We are curious about what’s happening in someone’s life.
We are trying see if their life is going but not better than ours😜
On the menu today:
And Sundried Tom
My idea for meal prep for the week 😅
That’s all for now.
