What a week it’s been. Well, thanks to last weeks fuck up it’s actually only been 6 days but at least I’m not dwelling on it. I, like so many people out there, have spent the last few days trying to live out a fantasy I’ve had ever since I was a kid with a Gameboy. Yes, I’ve downloaded PokemonGo. To be honest, I’m not that into it but I do enjoy the catching pokemon aspect of the game. I can’t really say that I give much of a shit about all that fighting, team and gym nonsense. I really just want to catch them all. As I was saying to a coworker the other day, I’d love if the App was more like the Zombie run thing where it was nothing more than a fitness thing encouraging you to exercise with the reward of catching Pokemon. I’ll probably dip in and out of it until I get bored of it. Until I lose the excitement of seeing a rattata appear in, sort of, real life. The child in me is still strong enough to get a kick out of that.
- The Woman Next Door by Yewande Omotoso
Still reading this one… slowly. I feel like I have a shit load on at the moment. The advanced course is now on Tuesdays and Thursdays which is really fucking with my blogging schedule so I always feel as though I’m behind. Plus, I’ve started trying to post to Instagram twice a day so I’m using free time to try and get a few good shots in ahead of time. What would really make my life easier is getting rid of the full-time job. If only it were that fucking simple.
- Sexus and Nexus by Henry Miller
I know this is starting to feel like déjà vu because these books were on my rundown last week. However, these are separate and completely different editions. They are much simpler and plain but no less lovely than the others. No doubt you’ll see them in my Instagram feed soon enough so look out for that.
- Stranger in a Strange Land by Robert A. Heinlein
Really not sure why I picked this up. Actually, I do. It was another of those “books you absolutely have to read” lists that I’m so fond of reading. These lists have such a huge influence on my that I can’t help but buy at least half of the list immediately. Still, this book also has some good reviews and is by a pretty popular science-fiction writer. If nothing less, it should be a decent enough read.
- The Fundamentals of Caring
I admit that I was mostly interested in this Netflix original film because of my interest in Paul Rudd’s face. Still, this sounded like an uplifting sort of thing and I was in need of something to write about on Tuesday.
Okay, I admit it’s taken me a fucking age to get into this show but I started watching season 1 today and I see what all the fuss is about. Only problem is, the rest of the show will keep me from getting any reading done. As if that wasn’t already an issue.
