Me constantly: *Hears about a researcher tangentially related to my interests*

*Instantly orders a used copy of their book*

Two hours later: *Remembers I pay Scribd money every month so I will stop doing that*

“You’d think I’d learn.”

My copy of The Testaments came a week early, so last night I picked it up to read a few pages and by 11:15 had finished. I don’t want to put in any spoilers, so I’ll say it’s worth reading: a story about the hope and terror of trying when it seems useless, a story for 2019.

Also, avoid the reviews, which are filled with spoilers on the characters. You would likely figure these details out as you read, but there’s joy in the finding.

For fall semester, I’m trying out an A6 Hobonichi instead of the larger Cousin because sometimes follow-through is linked to there you set the bar.

(Also, I’m a bit tired of the weight and I am in love with the grey wood bird case but I would definitely need to be sure on the size before that kind of commitment.)
