@Mainebot have you read this? I thought of you when reading it

Aw yeah, got some good reading coming up this weekend.

Bury me in the books I’ve bought but haven’t read yet.

Just about finished reading this one and those two remain the best stories. A couple of the others are decent as well but most are just falling flat for me.

It feels like something is missing from them, to give them a point in a way. I wonder if this could be a result of the translation not quite lining up with the original? That or they needed to be longer to flesh them out more.

Either way, after Fever Dream, this was largely a dud.

Trends in mobile games are so obnoxious, I wish there was a way to filter it all out. No one needs a million clicker/idle games, “merge” games (whatever the heck those are), battle royale, whatever else they move onto next.

The next time you want to proclaim a thing or way of interacting is superior consider if you’re just gatekeeping.

Note to self: when people remind you of yourself when you were a 14-year old asshole but they're grown-ass adults, RUN!

I’m also strongly contemplating getting the larger Hobonichi for next year so it can be properly filled with these things, but that’ll largely depend on how I find doing so in the Weeks I currently have. Might have to do both so I can have one that’s more day to day planning and the other end of day logging kind of deal?

I recently read this article: themillions.com/2017/05/a-gift and it’s helped me figure out what I want to do with my journal/planner.

I’d been using it primarily to log events and upcoming things, but that meant that it would often be mostly empty for weeks aside from a book I read. I like the idea of documenting things for myself and having the ability to go back and look at it, without the performance that comes with social media posts.

So far this year. Definitely slowed down after January for the most part, but also reading longer books.

I’ve been reading a whole bunch with my extra time. Currently reading Samanta Schweblin’s Mouthful of Birds. As with any short story collection they’re not all winners, but when they’re good, damn they’re good. ‘Preserves’ and the title story were the best so far, imo.

related to other work stuff but positive
