✨ Highlights

  • Passed my driving theory test 🎉
  • Had some lovely catch ups and hang outs with friends 💛
  • Had a treat yoself day with Anna 💅🏼
  • Started BSL level 2
  • Went to the Nottingham Contemporary exhibition launch and had a lovely time
  • Had a great dinner and cinema outing in London
    • This is part of my effort to not be a hotel slob when I’m down for work, cause usually I stay in my hotel room eating junk food and watching crap 😅
    • Also, if you're near Spitalfields and like middle eastern food, the food at Bubala is delicious!

🎮 Played/Read/Watched

  • ET: they did a 40th anniversary screening at Broadway so Thom and I went to see it.
  • Everything everywhere all at once (again again!) they did a showing at Broadway with some bonus content so I couldn’t miss it.
  • Disney's FastPass: A Complicated History: this is such a fun video essay on queueing at Disney parks and park operations in general, would highly recommend it.
  • Fear of a Black Hobbit
  • Double Indemnity: this had some very dated (aka sexist) scenes, but they were so egregious that it was more funny than anger inducing.
  • Dogtooth: caught this on Mubi and it was really good, a disturbing but interesting watch.
  • Finished The Book of Form and Emptiness: a sad but hopeful read. I really enjoyed how the story was told.
  • Got back on Fall Guys after a very long time. Don’t know why I ever stopped, to be honest, it’s silly, chaotic and colourful, a match made in heaven for me.
  • Finished Spiderman Miles Morales: I’d pretty much forgotten I hadn’t finished this game, so I was delighted to find out I stopped right before the final battles, so I had to do all those while remembering none of the controls 😅
  • Uncharted: I haven’t really been hooked by any games lately so I went to my library to see what I hadn’t played before that I might enjoy, so I started the Uncharted series.
  • Don’t Worry Darling: despite all the negative reviews, I quite enjoyed this. It was an entertaining film, and Florence Pugh was excellent. It was a shame she didn’t have more time with Chris Pine cause both of them had a great tension going.
  • Moonage Daydream: I went into this not knowing that much about David Bowie, and I loved it so much! I left the cinema completely awestruck. Do watch it if you get a chance.

Collage of pictures from September: one of my trainers, a nike hi top, sat on an armchair reading a book titled mastering blockchain; a selfie of me wearing a pink jumper and smiling; Juno sat in the kitchen looking very shiny against the garden doors; Juno in the living room, barely visible on the low light; my manicure, matte dark grey nails, with two matte nude nails that have a silver tip; a cafe table where you can see my lavender latte, decorated with dried flowers, and my friend's teapot and slice of cake; a pair of bright yellow crocs, with little retro charms, including a floppy disk and an old mobile phone.
