After a few months in Berlin everything begins to slowly getting back to normal. I’m working twice a week from the office, rest from home for samedi (my second year ongoing). My daughter 👧🏼 is officially 5 years old now and I can’t comprehend when did that happen 🤯 Not only that, my newborn son 👶🏼 will mark his 6 month this month. Feeling old. It feels strange to see all the people with the masks covering their faces in public transport. I hope we are getting to the safe zone with all that COVID-19 mumbo-jumbo we’ve been going through this year 🙌🏻

📚 Reading

I was looking for some new fantasy books to catch a break from Earthsea series. I’ve heard about “Blood Song”, and entire Raven’s Shadow Trilogy for that matter, some time ago and boy is it great. I’m such a sucker for epic fantasy that it’s scary. So far there were two first parts translated to 🇵🇱 and I’m still going through the first one, but I can already tell it’s one of my this year’s highlights.

🎮 Playing

Not much gaming happening recently due to the newborn. That said, I finally got my hands on Warcraft III: Reforged and… I’m loving it! I played I don’t know how many hours in Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos and The Frozen Throne and now being able to make use of the full HD resolution and modern day graphics card is wonderful ❤️
On that note, I started watching Twitch for the first time in my life. I watch only one channel of streamer Grubby, former pro player of WC3. Loads of fun!

📺 Watching

I finished Season 2 of The Counterpart and it was absolute joy. I then went through all 5 Seasons of Peaky Blinders and while I preferred the earlier ones, the entire show is top quality and entertainment. After all this I went back to Westworld to give it another spin and… It worked this time. I really enjoyed Season 1 and its development and am looking forward how it goes further in Season 2 🤠

🎧 Listening

As I’m back to the office twice a week these days, my listening habits went back to the soundtracks. I mentioned it in the past, but yet again Prince of Persia: Warrior Within has dominated my playlist. It works every single time when I need to focus on some tasks and get stuff done. From the single songs department, I listened quite a bit to Alanis Morissette and really enjoyed her three soundtrack songs: “Uninvited”, “Wunderkind” and “I Remain” (coincidentally from the movie Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time).
