Still living and having fun in lovely Berlin, our fifth year ongoing. Work-wise, being in the right place at the right time in samedi. Kiddo 👧🏼 turned 4 this year (when did that happen? 🤯) and second one 👶🏼 is on its way (60% ready).

📚 Reading

I think it’s the very first time for me when I learned about hard science fiction genre. Similarly to “The Broken Earth Series” I read prior (which I cannot recommend enough), I had this one on my reading list for quite some time now. It’s not as lightly consumed as it was with N. K. Jemisin series, but it’s still hell of a good story that I’m getting more and more into. 

🎮 Playing

I’ve been an avid FIFA player for years. First one from the series I remember I played is FIFA Soccer 96. It wasn’t mine, I played at friend’s place, but I was hooked immediately. My own first FIFA was Road to World Cup 98.1 I don’t remember how many hours I spent playing this particular one, let alone counting the entire time I spend playing the series. Last few years I’ve been buying new version every two years (14, 16, 18), but 20 was a 🎁 😇

📺 Watching

For whatever reason Netflix still didn’t provide second part of Carole & Tuesday so, in the meantime, we finally gave Westworld a chance. I’ve heard a lot good about it, but not too many details nor spoilers. Currently we finished 2 episodes and while it’s easy to see how it’s HBO’s typical show (violent, full of nudity etc.), it has this something to it that draws attention. The story seems to be very well written and I’m genuinely intrigued how it’s going to develop further 🤠

🎧 Listening

More and more I’m drawn to soundtracks while working and trying to deeply focus on the task at hand (especially true at work). My all time favourites still remain soundtracks from Prince of Persia: Warrior Within and Chrono Trigger, but recently I can add at least one more to that list: Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag. I had a blast listening to it for the last one or two weeks and it’s currently at the top of my playlist when I’m in the office. Additionally, I finally gave Pet Sounds a try and boy is it a great LP! Guess I’m gonna tune in the Beach Boys more often from now on. More…

  1. Coincidentally it was RTWC 98 that had indoor mode that somewhat returned this time around as VOLTA.
