Wizard of Earthsea

Yesterday I set a bit of a stretch goal for myself: read a whole book. There are still plenty on my shelf that I could read in (half) a day, but in the end I went with Wizard of Earthsea, that just arrived yesterday too.

I didn’t know much about the series, only that it was adapted into a Ghibli movie (that I haven’t seen) criticized by the author. But it’s youth fiction, so I supposed it was  easy (and quick) to read, and I wasn’t wrong.


Todos

I was afraid I would forget something I wanted to do today, so I used a TodoMVC demo to keep track of what I wanted to do today. I have a bad habit of “wasting” weekends just playing games or idly staring at Twitter and Mastodon – not necessarily wasted, actually, since that’s plenty of recovery and mental idle after the tightly paced weekdays.

The point is rather that I often do that and not do things that I’d want or need to do, and that’s where the list comes handy. Actually on Mastodon I was pointed to Habitica for the same purpose, and I did register too, but at first glance it felt a bit too much for what I needed (an absolutely minimal todo list) and also counter-intuitive with its game-like system.


上井草ご無沙汰

そうでもないけど。数週間に一回は通る。でも今日は本当に久しぶりに前職の作画さんと前行ってたお店行ったら結構楽しかった。
