Monthly Roundup โ†ช Aug๐Ÿ’‚๐Ÿ’ท

Oh August. What a weird month you’ve been.

I landed in the UK on the 3rd and then got sick like a day later from ye olde Travellers Flu/Cold. Which then lasted something around 2 weeks. But I powered through that and even went to the Nine Worlds convention, in which I also was part of a Star Trek roundtable!!!

And when I FINALLY RECOVERED, I spent the weekend up in Edinburgh visiting some friends!ย Which was of course super gr8, but as soon as I got back to England I got sick. AGAIN. And that has taken me about a week to recover from. Which of course was SUPER.

Did I mention I also got my phone stolen OUT OF MY HAND within the first week of being back in the UK?ย Thanks August. That was… Interesting.

Monthly Roundup โ†ช March ๐Ÿ“šโ›…

This month has been crazy tiring work wise and THEN I got sick and spent a bit of time in hospital, and as all chronic illness kids know, isย theย fun place to be.

I did manage to read a shit load more than I thought I would which is awesome!! I’m even past the half way point for my 40 book reading goal for the year!!!

Although my new mini goal is to try and read at least half of the books that I currently own before I head back to the UK for my masters in the fall.ย Which is actually a lot of books as well. So uh, that should prove to be an interesting challenge…

Didn’t finish my stack of short books again… But I was reading longer books too so I think that’s a good enough reason!!!!!!!! Maybe March will be the month I finish the stack and finally get to dive headfirst into my Unread section of my home library, as well as local library.

I also thought of doing a mid month book haul post, as I got a bunch of library books as -*well as bought a few second hand ones, but it’s now marchย so… it doesn’t…. feel like… there’s…. much……. point…………

IT’S HANUKKAH TIME Y’ALL [Book Tag]

So I live in Singapore. Which is in Asia. Which does not have a lot of Jews. And most certainly not enough to warrant decorations all over the city-state to celebrate Hanukkah.

Which blows because as a kid I wished that justย one placeย would have Hanukkah decorations. Hell, even some blue and gold lights somewhere would have been nice! BUT NO. It was all red and green and Santa this, reindeer that. Not even a few electric candles with blue fairy lights near or around them. ๐Ÿ˜’

THIS GOES OUT TO ALL MY FELLOW YIDS WHO RESENT BEING LEFT OUT IN THE SEASONAL MONTH OF DECEMBER.

The stories in this collection merge technological wonder with the everyday. Children upgrade their fighting spiders with armor, and toymakers create punchcard-driven marionettes. Large fish lumber across the skies, while boat people find a new home on the edge of a different dimension. Technology and tradition meld as the people adapt to the changing forces of their world. The Sea Is Ours is an exciting new anthology that features stories infused with the spirits of Southeast Asia’s diverse peoples, legends, and geography.ย
