well enough about the coronavirus lately let’s talk about a computer virus called the Love Bug and the creator behind it

oh so a Russian hacker group called Fancy Bear hacked into Angela Merkel’s emails five years ago. i think Fancy Bear hacked into the WADA website too?? hmmm….

yeap indeed they did after stupid WADA banned their countrywoman Maria Sharapova for 15 months zzz

a French serial killer expert turns out to be a serial liar. wow. how could he write more than 40 books like that??? don’t publishers do background checks or something?? what???

 

SKIMMED

five exercises for when you sit too much. do i sit too much? probably. would i do any of these? probably not. why did i open the article then? idk.

how to keep an indoor plant alive. well i kinda only read the watering and sunlight parts. i recently acquired two new plant babies hehe

 

RECENTLY WATCHED

Upload on Amazon Prime. this is so so great though it feels like a combination of the best Black Mirror episodes. Think San Junipero, Nosedive…but i’m watching it for the second time. can’t wait for season 2!

and ive been rewatching Big bang Theory cos i couldn’t find any cool new comedies

CURRENTLY WATCHING

la case de las flores. The House of Flowers. it’s a Mexican comedy which is sometimes quite dark. but oh it’s so good hahahahaa

tuesday. sunnyyyyyyyyy. hi.

oh wow so ive disappeared for a few days cos ive been plagued (again) with crazy allergy and also i was making a bunch of calls to people who are half an Earth away. ive also watched a lot of TV #guiltyascharged 

but i’ve also been writing physical letters so that one day, when someone asks me what i did during the war against the coronavirus, i could say: “i had to resort to writing snail mails (which actually isn’t very snail-ey in Germany) and in each i wrote ‘i hope that things will be normal again soon, and that we can see each other again soon’.”

SKIMMED

what’s new on Netflix this week! so excited to see that Molly’s Game will be up! i watched it through halfway last year on the flight back to Malaysia from Amsterdam (a whopping 11hour flight) but cos i intentionally exhausted myself in the week leading to the flight, i slept a lot on the plane and couldn’t even finish one movie lol. oh and la casa de papel! yesssss.

there’s a new entertainment platform called Quibi which is designed for the phone (whatever that means) and they are releasing Anna Kendrick’s comedy… #takemymoney¬†

“tech projects to do instead of watching Netflix” lol this should be retitled as “how to organise your digital life during this lockdown”. but the bits about Raspberry Pi and repurposing old tech are technically projects. would love to do some Linux programming but oops too late, university starts again online next week ahahahahhaa

for people who want to watch online content virtually

 

READ

this Quibi thing sounds kinda interesting. and quite immersive. might be a cool way for certain artists to display their art in a new way

102 years ago it was the Spanish Flu. the key to flattening the curve is aggressive social distancing. that’s the key point of the article with statistics to support the notion

how the coronavirus could drastically alter urban life. yet another time-worth read from The Guardian

 

WATCHED

what is Rick and Morty doing with this Japanese samurai and grisly video

Wednesday. spring is coming. Aachen.

hello again, well, it’s the virus outbreak now so i’m pretty much staying home as much as i could. though i still go out quite often hahahaha. not very responsible of me. so i thought it might be a good idea for sharing what i’m reading again. i read some good pieces in the past two months or so but well, life caught in the way. this might turn into a diary of how im surviving this hahahaha.

READ

we should not believe everything we read. it’s so sad actually that we might have to remind ourself that something that sounds too good to be true, might really be not true.¬†

WATCHED

the Butterfield Diet Plan. ahhahahahah British humour ist DA BEST

and Young Sheldon on Amazon Prime
