🎃Hello friends, 

Welcome to The Strive Journal, a roundup of 1 - 5 cool things I found and learned this week. This week we are back to the usual content however expect some economy and wealth related tips in the coming weeks as I'm still deep down the economic, crypto, and investment rabbit hole. Won't be back for a while.

Halloween is upon us! One of my favorite times of the year because of the changing forests and scary themes. My girlfriend and I spent last Sunday carving pumpkins and we'll be out trick or treating with the little ones in her family next Sunday. Wishing you all a great one!

Let's begin.

1) The struggle

"The struggle which is not joyous is the wrong struggle. The joy of the struggle is not hedonism and hilarity, but the sense of purpose, achievement, and dignity."
Germaine Greer

🔗 In work, health, and life your mission should be pursuing struggles that bring you joy. Not suffering through the struggle to reach joy. Don't work a job you hate for a big paycheque or go to the gym every day for an ideal body. Time is the value above all others and we should enjoy it. Seek the work and activities that are difficult, but fulfilling to you. 

2) Mark Twain's real name is Samuel Clemens

🎭 Besides being one of the greatest writers in American history, Twain is also widely considered the very first comedian because he would go to pubs and read his humorous excerpts aloud as entertainment. 

As the story goes, Samuel Clemens worked a riverboat for a couple of years and the boats needed 12 feet of clearance in water depth to travel safely. To make sure the river was deep enough a crew member at the front of the boat would throw a stone tied to a rope into the water with knots tied every 6 feet and if the surface was above the second knot he would yell.

"Mark Twain!"

Twain is old English for two and Mark signifies the knots on the rope. The actual source of his pen name is controversial but this one's a great story. 

3) Sword & Scale

🗡️ The worst monsters are real. This is the darkest but the best true-crime podcast I've found and I continue to go back to it (even though I take regular mental health breaks). If you're into true crime at its darkest and most detailed level, check this one out.

Spotify Here. 
Warning, it is graphic... Here's the description:

The Sword and Scale is a true-crime podcast with an immersive audio experience covering the dark side of humanity and human nature. The stories delve into the worst of the worst and include murder, rape, dismemberment, and cannibalism.
