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

thursday. it’s sunny. NRW, Germany

i haven’t been out to the city but i did go for a jog this morning and yeah, there weren’t as many cars as usual, i think the vehicle i saw the most were buses. it’s quite like a dead town. guess it’s good. #stayhome 

READ

the art of journaling. a very very comprehensive article and i pretty much just skipped to the sections that are most relevant to me. one of my New Year resolutions is to journal every day…trolololol fail. i have still yet to find the most suitable method for me…alas, i couldn’t even decide between having a digital journal or a physical one. ahh, possibilities are endless!

the history of irrational numbers because last Saturday was Pi Day. pi is an irrational number. 

this is by far the best text written on “untranslatable emotions” i’ve ever read. probably cos it highlights an actual use for it

there’s a PDF and i was excited to see there is a Malay section which only contains one word. oh wells. hahahahahaha. it’s still nice. but the PDF is more like a collection of words that don’t have English equivalents lol

WATCHED

The Circle USA on Netflix. how to make friends while being under self-quarantine. oh. and American dramassssss. hahahahahah. hilarious.

 

WILL BE WATCHING

been binge-watching this every evening with the Streberin. i wonder what we will do when we’re done with the series….

Halt and Catch Fire on Amazon Prime. an underrated TV Series which talks about programmers and geeks and nerds set in the 80s. it ended up on many “Best of the Decade” lists. mainly discovered it because i had a crush on Mackenzie Davis
