Early

There are certain books I wish I hadn’t read so early in my life.

Here are some of them:

  • The Iliad and The Odyssey
  • The Silmarillion
  • Aeneid

I had barely turned 14 or 15 when I read all these. I certainly lacked the capacity to appreciate their full depth. (I’m not sure if I have that capacity now, at 25, to be frank.)

I suppose I get the bragging rights, but I can’t remember the details of most of these stories.

This is probably my only regret.

Twitter

I joined Twitter with this new account on March 9, 2019. 263 days had passed since then.

I had posted 6,694 tweets in that time.

That’s a bit more than 25 tweets a day.

That’s a lot of tweets per day.

Not trying to get to a grand message here. I was merely interested in finding out the number, so I did.

Odyssey

It’s been a week or so since I started playing. There’s so much to do.

The map of Greece alone is massive. Since I purchases all the DLC’s, that adds 3 more maps, Elysium, Underworld and Atlantis.

Anyway, I’m not in a hurry to finish this. The plan is to enjoy it as much as I can.

Cabinet

The new cabinet of Ministers made me realise that we won’t really see anything changing as long as these tired, obsolete, incompetent fools keep getting reassigned into different portfolios each time around.

Do we need new faces? Yes.

Would I back fresh, inexperienced but energetic candidates if they were to run for office come General Election? Yes.

Would I be willing to run so that I could “be the change I want to see?” No.

But I do think I still have the right to demand better from those who’ve decided to run.

Saccharine

This is from a note titled What would I do if I had to do it all over again? that I wrote back in 2017.

The rest of it is too corny to share.

If there is one thing that you’ve ever taught me, it’s to be comfortable in my own mediocrity. You’ve chosen to be with me, not just in my joyful moments but in my darkest ones, too. I’m not alone when I’m fighting my demons because I know, even with the faintest sense of hope, that you will help me find myself again.
