Excursions

Now

Here’s my thoughts log presented as a simple bulleted list and updated frequently, hopefully once a week at the very least. I have learnt from experience that anything more complicated and I would not be able to keep up.

What Have I Beed Focused on?

  • Thanks (literally) to the ongoing pandemic, I have recently moved to my hometown. It has allowed me, after a long time, to spend some quality time with my parents.
  • The changed location has also meant a very different routine. And I haven’t been able to get used to it yet.
  • I’m reading a lot more these days. For my newsletter, and also otherwise. My Goodreads currently reading list is loaded with multiple books.
  • I am writing a lot less and am not happy about it.
