I went voting yesterday for the European Parliament. The results are heartbreakingly scary because extremist parties are gaining in numbers. But that’s not what I wanted to talk about.
I’ve started to read again. I finally picked up Game Of Thrones (still on the first book) and I’m reading it at every possible moment. So when I was crossing the street yesterday with the book in my hand, I realized that I’ve felt so naked in so long. I’ve completely forgotten how good it feels to hold a book in your hand. I used to be able to read and cross streets at the same time, but right now I feel like I’m too much of a newbie to pull it off. I remember never being able to put a book aside unless I’d finished it. Now, I just can’t decide whether to speed read it all or not.
I finished my drafts of both my report and my popular science article. Just a few moments ago, I sent it to the Dutchman and a close friend for them to read. I only asked them to read and told them if they understood my science or if I just wrote a lot of bogus that doesn’t make sense. Dutchman thought it made a lot of sense.
Yesterday was also the Swedish mother’s day. The Dutchman had bought me a game that I had longed for, but couldn’t really buy (I can’t decide what to get myself for getting my bachelor’s degree). I loved the surprise so much that I ended up playing it last night instead of working on my report and article. Whops.
