Feb 1st - Feb 7th

  • This week has been better than previous ones, mostly because I have been going outside every morning, except for one day where I couldn’t go out so I did 30 minutes of yoga instead. It’s definitely improved my mood and how I feel about my body and my health. This next week I want to continue going out every morning and visiting the park; I think it might be a viable solution to the winter/pandemic blues.

  • I’m still practicing piano about one hour a day, sometimes more. Sometimes it can get frustrating, especially if the piece is a tad difficult for my current level, but it’s very rewarding when I finally manage to play it right. Yesterday I was able to play the first bits of Debussy’s Clair de Lune (a very easy version).

  • We have finished watching Money heist - it’s a very uneven show with some moments of brilliance and many other scenes that feel both unrealistic and anticlimatic.
  • I’m still reading I contain multitudes by Ed Yong and The Eighth Life by Nino Haratischwili. Both of these are very long, so I don’t expect to finish either of them until end of February. We’ll see.
