โœจ Highlights

  • Weโ€™re got the keys to our house on the 18th! ๐ŸŽ‰
  • I took two and a half weeks of work to move and disconnect for a bit, and it was lovely! Although, I might have disconnected a bit too much and slightly resented coming back to my status of 'cog in the capitalist machine' ๐Ÿ˜…

๐ŸŽฎ Played/Read/Watched

  • AC Valhalla: still plodding through it ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
  • Jedi Fallen Order was great fun! Although some of the mechanics that are meant to make it harder actually just made it annoying ๐Ÿ˜… I'm a busy woman, I can't spend my life traversing these planets, just give me fast travel!
  • The men who stared at goats: I read the book a few months ago and it made me want to watch the film. Was alright ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
  • This was a great read on what's wrong with NFTs.
  • Guns akimbo: wacky and fun ๐Ÿ˜„
  • This article hit hard for me cause I do really miss all the folks I have more casual friendships with ๐Ÿ˜ข
  • Tenet: I enjoyed it, very on brand Nolan film, had me entertained trying to anticipate the twists.
  • Maquette: Had a quick go at this but it didn't really grab me, to be honest. Some aspects reminded me of superliminal, but overall was a bit meh so I ditched it.
  • Finished reading Girl, Woman, Other. It was a great read, full of lovely stories, and I particularly enjoyed the way the stories were threaded together.
  • Parasite: finally got around to watching it and it was so, so good! Just a superb film.
  • Key & Peele: started watching it from the beginning, will prob do a little bit at a time in between watching other stuff.
  • Naked gun: went looking for something fun to watch and ended up watching this. Silly and fun until I realised one of the main people in it is OJ Simpson ๐Ÿ˜‘
  • This was a good read with some great advice on interviewing.

๐Ÿ“ธ Pics

A collage of picture: first one is Thom by the river trent, under Trent Bridge; there's a couple of us with the moving van, one of Thom loading boxed and one of me in the van with a big plant on my lap; the rest are of the new house chaos, you can see the kitchen and both living rooms filled with stuff on the floors.

We went for a walk by the river early in the month; the rest are from the move, and the generalised chaos of the situation ๐Ÿ˜…
