wednesday. sunny. is winter taking a break in Aachen?

it would be pretty warm in the coming handful of days. “warm” in the winter sense as we were attacked by minus degrees last week but it might be up to double digit warm in a bit. ive been reading books and due to not having a laptop, been pretty lazy to post what ive consumed. i hope i get it back soon.

note: ive been reading Aileen Wuornos’ letters to her best friend and i must admit that some of my writing style might be temporarily influenced by her. Lee, i hope you don’t mind and yes, someone is even “stealing” your style. chuckle chuckle!

READ

“the Brazil variant”. fucking hell i thought there was another coronavirus mutation. clickbait. can’t believe it from The Atlantic

i finished How To: … by Randall Munroe. fun read. i read this and about Aileen Wuornos’ grim life interchangbly so i could sleep easier at night… America be fucking up my sleep for the past weeks with their unjust treatment/execution of women. ok exams are coming up, gotta buckle up

saturday. slightly sunny.

Germany might be on lockdown soon…so we sorta had our last meetup before it will be illegal to do that. some people might say that we’re irresponsible and that we should’ve taken social distancing more seriously. but in our only (albeit rather weak) defense, we have been almost solely hanging out with each other and were at my place, and no one took any public transport and let alone ran into another soul. (other than at supermarkets, but don’t we all?) it’s a gray area isn’t it?

wrote some letters to send cos Angela Merkel encouraged that (she also said we shouldn’t physically meet; it’s true that people only hear what they want to hear). and so i ran out of envelopes and stamps so i was delighted to find out that we can buy and print stamps online! and i folded the letter into an envelope thing so it didn’t need an envelope too! wow i feel so eco-friendly!

READ

why COVID-19 is worse than the flu. hmmhmm

someone who finished the freeCodeCamp’s certifications in a month who also makes YouTube coding tutorials. ive never watched a video coding tutorial…still quite skeptical (i always read) but well, i think i should give it a go soon. since i’ll be stuck home for a while with my computer

WATCHED

i’ve been watching Ted-Ed Riddles and i finished season 1 today. i can proudly say that i solved most of it (two with my genius friend)

Crashing on Netflix. Phoebe Waller-Bridge is a genius. watched Fleabag and Killing Eve and so happy to see her art on Netflix.

CURRENTLY READING

these would be books (and sometimes perhaps very long form texts) and maybe this would keep me more accountable to finish them hahahaha. this is a little embarrassing and you can see how hard is it for me to just. focus. on. one. thing.

Unstoppable by Maria Sharapova

Meditations by Marcus Aurelius

For the Love of Physics: … by Walter Lewin
