Geekosaur News #13: Busy Week And Books

Post Contents

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.


Reading

Today I finished reading Gods of Jade and Shadow by Silvia Moreno-Garcia. I got this one because last year I read Mexican Gothic and it was absolutely fantastic, so I decided to get something else form the same author. I enjoyed it a little bit less than Mexican Gothic (which is a newer book) which is kind of a high bar anyway. I still had fun, and recommend it anyway :)

This week my pre-order of The End Of Everything (Astrophysically Speaking) by Katie Mack arrived. I’m excited to read it, and might start after I finish Mythos by Stephen Fry. She has a cool Twitter profile, and I suggest you to follow her there if you are interested in the Cosmos: AstroKatie!

Tomorrow I should also receive another book, The Ones We’re Meant To Find, which I’ll start reading in place of Gods Of Jade And Shadow - as I’m trying to keep reading a fiction and a non-fiction book at ‘the same time’.

Other

On Thursday May 6th, I completed 2 year working at Indeed, and I’m very happy. Getting that job offer, moving to Vancouver, meeting awesome people that work there, it’s been really great!

I also got into the ‘Diamond League’ on Duolingo, and I hope I can keep slowly but steadily learning German. Can’t wait until I can actually read something or interact with people on Twitter in German.

Last week I mentioned that I wanted to try journaling more on Notion. That didn’t go that well, but at least I’m keeping up with the daily tweets!


Thank you for reading and hope to see you again next time. Compliments and comments (insults as well) are welcome on Reddit, Twitter, and by email at [email protected]
