Reading Stats So Far: September 2021

I’ve been traking how much I’m reading, and below are my hourly totals for each month. So far it’s been a rollercoaster, but I hope those last few months of 2021 are going to be better.

Small note on the categories: Books that ‘teach’ me something are categorized under the learn category. These are books about mythoogy, poetry, etc, while for non-fiction would be a biography, for example.

So far, the only non-fiction book I was reading this year was H is for Hawk, which is currently on hold, but I hope I get back to it before the end of the year.

Geekosaur Weekly #16: Dropping Duolingo, Studying Poetry, And More

So, I took quite a break from the blog and this newsletter. There are a lot of reasons, but an important one is that it was low priority and I didn’t have much desire or ideas to write. And I guess my Jamstack for the blog doesn’t help, as it not as easy as using wordpress or blogger to write and publish. Not that it’s hard, but a couple extra steps.

I even flirted a bit with Revue, a newsletter website that was bought by Twitter, but for now I think I’ll keep this newsletter as blog posts, as in the end I always find limitations and annoyances with those blog/newsletter services.

But anyway, I plan on returning, even if with a less strict schedule and maybe less posting overall. I still like to talk about what I’ve been up to, and specially recommend stuff that I think is good.

Geekosaur Weekly #15: TV Shows And Games

Another busy week at work, but now things will settle down for a while. And while I wasn’t much online this week - being away from the computer when not working - I did enjoy some great TV shows on stream.

I think starting next week I can start having content recommendations and comments again :)

My Old Blogs Names Part 1

In the latest Otakusphere, Iniksbane mentions how Moyatorium is their favorite name for a blog, which I kinda have to agree. Compared to all blog names I ever had, it’s on a whole other level of coolness.

But I realized I also never talked about this title blog’s domain, my previous ones, and my complete incompetency at coming up with a great decent name and sticking with it. So let’s chat a bit about my blogging adventures through the decades.

Starting Less New TV Shows For Now

Too many cool TV shows, too little time to watch all of them. Who else has this problem?

It’s a common scenario for me: start a new TV show, watch it over a week or two, and then wait a whole year for the next season. But then when the next season arrives, you are already watching so many other new TV shows that you end up leaving it for later, but never go back to it.

52 paused, 120 abandoned. That’s a lot!

Geekosaur Weekly #13: Busy Week And Books

Busy week didn’t let me check much online content this week, but at least I kept reading and managed to finish a book today!

Music

This OST is so god, and so nostalgic to me! It brings me back to the early 2000s when I was making new anime-lover friends, going to my first conventions, and we finally were getting some cool mangas (like Card Captor Sakura) published. One of the first few songs - Groovy - is one of my favs, I think.


Books of 2021 So Far (April 2021)

One of my goals for this year is to read more: books, manga, articles, poetry, anything. This is part of something that gets more and more important to me every year as I get older, which is spending time on things that are worth my time.

I can also play games and watch great shows and movies, of course, but I think reading is a great way for me to focus, and be away from the computer and smartphone.

Geekosaur Weekly #12: Books, Manga And More

Warm and sunny Sunday here for me, and I wish everyone is having a great weekend.

Music

I already shared Raon Lee previously here quite some time ago, but here I go again! Her Digimon cover is fantastic, and the has so many great content. I suggest just listening to all her covers.
