I really enjoyed the premise of Rainbow Rowell’s Attachments (add me on Goodreads!). It’s the end of the 90s, people are just discovering the Internet, I suppose I’m biased since I really like emails/letters structured stories.
Other than that, I’m in between waiting for progress on fanfics of Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl (yes, I went on a whole Rowell rabbit hole and yes, I can’t move on from books, shh), and reading Freakonomics on the metro when I’m not tired.
It’s been pretty interesting, from the comparison of crime rates with legalized abortion, to the similarity of cheating schoolteachers and sumo wrestlers. One thing I’m learning (and remembering) is how economic issues are both simple and complex, and of course, based on innate incentives.
- ‘20 of the most beautiful abandoned places in the world‘ brought some places in mind I’m definitely adding to my bucket list of places I want to go for photo shoots, ahhhh!
- ‘You just out of prison, now what?‘ from The New York Times Magazine shows how two ex-convicts are helping released inmates rehabilitate back to society through their ‘Ride Home’ program. It’s admirable and it just goes to show that it’s just all about making the best out of it.
“I remember being so tired that when I looked at patients in beds, I’d think, ‘They’re so lucky that they get to lie down.’”
- The misery of a doctor’s first days‘– depressing, but also enlightening.
- ‘Why Japanese kids can walk to school alone‘ brings an interesting notion in Japan where crime rates are reportedly so low, that parents trusts a community or mere strangers to help each other out.
Haven’t seen any new movies in a while, but below is a quick video from the NYT Magazine article I mentioned with the ‘Ride Home’ program.
And the article about Japanese kids walking to school brought me to this old TV show called Hajimete no Otsukai, or My First Errand, wherein children are sent out to do an errand for their family around the neighborhood, followed secretly by a camera crew. I’m between wondering why they’re doing that to kids, slash finding the kids so adorable and rooting for them.
Believe it or not, this is my watch list that’s cut down already: Doctor Who, The Arrow, Flash, iZombie, Fresh Off The Boat and Grey’s Anatomy.
Three things; one, sonic sunglasses wearable to replace the sonic screwdriver? That’s a joke, right? Two, I’m so happy for -excuse my fangirlness- Olicity!! Three, oh my gosh Zoom, he’s just not going away, is he?
Just LSS from Planetshakers’ concert and I’ve been listening to old The National and Kodaline albums lately.
