In true VInita fashion, I did not end up finding a better way to document things I’ve been reading and rabbit holes I’ve been down… so we are returning to this long-form format. I am slo 5 months behind (even though I have collected all my resources) so we’re going to play catch-up.

Special thanks to a friend who inspired me to do more writing. Gave me the push I needed to catch-up (and hopefully do other kinds of writing as well).

Finished Reading:

  • Becoming. I am not a huge fan of autobiographies or biographies, but I quite enjoyed this one. I thought the conversational tone of the book and the way the story was told made it quite enjoyable.

Finished Watching:

  • The One. Sci-fi nerd series about code finding your perfect match. I had watched this previously but re-watched it.

New Vocab:

  • Fastidious - very attentive to and concerned about accuracy and detail.
  • Meted - dispense or allot justice, a punishment, or harsh treatment.
  • Pernicious - highly injurious or destructive, tending to a fatal issue, deadly.
  • Desultory - lacking a plan, purpose, or enthusiasm.
  • Overemote - to express emotion to an excessive degree especially in acting, to emote excessively.
  • Ribbing - the act of harassing someone playfully or maliciously (especially by ridicule); provoking someone with persistent annoyances.

No Comments.

I acknowledge and pay respect to the Traditional Custodians on whose land I live, play, and work. I pay my deepest respects to all Indigenous Elders past, present and emerging.
