The halving came and went and it was life as per normal for me.

First up, I must confess that my advice about not posting about price action of BTC didn’t hold weight at all during the halving. Unless you have been living in a cave, you couldn’t have helped but notice the flurry of SN posts ushering in Block 840,000. Plenty of chatter about why transactions were more expensive than expected. Probing of reactions - are you going to sleep or join the viewing party? Ordinarily, I would have felt delighted to be privy to the hive of activity on SN. It never feels old to belong to a community that is greater than yourself, and great memories are made swapping opinions and making predictions - fast and furious style - on an online platform. The Sensei v1.0 would have gladly jumped on the bandwagon to get his fill of the excitement. But I’m now Sensei v2.0. The newly improved Sensei who doesn’t bat his eyelids when it comes to spending his sats on gift cards and bills. The halving should have captured my imagination, especially since it typically leads to a price surge some time later. However, I was refreshingly unperturbed by this significant milestone. I didn’t even bother to find out exactly the website(s) that would allow me to view the halving. I was decidedly nonchalant about it. I think now that I have gotten used to spending sats, my focus has shifted from when will Bitcoin pump? to how do I develop more reliable sources of stacking sats?. SN has been great, but I shouldn’t be placing all my eggs in one basket. I should buckle down and create a course on emeralize. Or aim for the moon and come up with my podcast on Fountain. The thing is, I’m so preoccupied with the art of stacking sats that the halving failed to occupy cognitive space. I think it’s a good thing. Because it brings the focus back to the individual - just do my own thing and stick to the plan. How was your halving experience like?   join Sensei at https://stacker.news/r/cryotosensei
