Weeknote 36 (2023)

Alright! Second week of September and things are already in full gear. Here are some things going on 🛸 Ahsoka The new Star Wars universe spin-off about this Jedi. I gotta say, it’s not amazing. The episodes are shorter than one would hope for and the cast isn’t great. I remember back in the old […]

I’ve been half enjoying some vacation days and summer condensed work hours. For some strange agreement, my office allows us to do 36 hours weekly, rather than 40 😏 Not only that but the four days you do 7 hours, they can be done in one go. These days I do eight to three, quite […]

I had this smash burger the other day, I love smash burgers it’s a great invention. This one was a little bit strange, they did not use the classic butter bun… The middle section became a little soggy too fast, so that wasn’t great. If only they had changed the bun it would’ve been so […]

This week I was invited to the fanciest dinner I’ve had in years 💰 I don’t know about you but I simply don’t enjoy high-end cuisine 🤷‍♂️ First, it hurts to pay triple the price for one-third of the food I’d get somewhere else. But secondly and most importantly, even if I’m not paying my […]

😮 Cheap manga? don’t mind if I do This week I bought the first volume of Naruto, the famous manga/anime for 1,85€. Yes, you read that right, the price of a coffee. Not second-hand but brand new 😱 How is it possible? I don’t understand either 🤷‍♂️ You see, in Spain, the prices of books […]

Quite an uneventful week, trying to cruise through the month of June without thinking too much about our impending hot summer. Even my cat (pictured above) is feeling the heat. Barcelona’s temperatures are rising and it won’t be long until I need to sleep with the windows open 🥵 📺 TV show recommendation I’ve watched […]

This past weekend I spent in Galicia, that corner of the country, the north-western part of Spain 🇪🇸 I went there with two of my students for a national seminar given by my master. Was great to see old friends from other regions of Spain as well as enjoy this trip with my students ✈️ […]

Here’s a short and strange story on how I got to play Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom on launch day. ⏪ Rewind to February 2023 The game listing appeared on Amazon for pre-order, so I did. When you pre-order such things in advance… well… it’s done so you can get in the queue and get […]

It’s been two weeks since I’ve been back from Japan and I’m still adjusting to reality. The reality of walking on dirty streets and feeling the general rudeness, but on the other side the calm of riding an almost empty metro or walking on deserted streets. You can’t have everything. 📚 Manga During my Japan […]

Weeknote 12 (2023)

What a rollercoaster of a week! 🏢 ✈️ Work and travel It started with having to firefight 👨‍🚒 at work with an issue that had me working overtime. Not a big deal, I just finished up early the next day. I’m mostly tying loose ends before my upcoming major vacation (keep an eye out for […]
