Bored out of my mind. I guess that’s one way to say it. Though I guess if you piece them out, not really. I’ve, I could be up to a lot of things. I just have a terribly short attention span and every newly-made projects just get replaced by the next nascent thing.
I’m currently reading Terry Pratchett’s Raising Steam. It’s my first Discworld novel, and the second book by Sir Terry that I’m reading. The first was The Long Earth, which was interesting, but not very compelling. Raising Steam was fantastic, though. Exhausting to read, but it gave me more chuckles than I thought possible in just a couple of pages.
I’m also reading Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book. Only been a couple of pages in, so I’ll reserve judgement until I’ve read a couple more chapters. I love the introduction pages, though. So implicit yet so direct.
Been messing with some story ideas. One of them I grew out of writer’s block era by integrating it with a game of self-rpg about shut-ins. Some world-specific terminologies there, and I certainly wasn’t thinking about readability while I was doing it, but I think I’ll post it when I’m finished. Assuming I can get it finished.
Music. I picked up Arctic Monkey’s AM album. Compared to the other rock music in my collection, this one is so chill I could lie back and still enjoy it. Been having R U Mine stuck in my head for the longest time. I have also been combing through Muse’s discography. Still, and always will be, my favourite band.
Been making a skin for osu!. One based on astronomy, space, black holes, and not a single anime character or sci-fi fonts. It’s been ages since I last worked on graphic design, so this one is taking a long time and long walks through other people’s design. Hmph, still not sure if that kind of texture will work…
And I guess I’m still bored out of my mind because I even bother to write this down. Heh. Excuse the rambling.
Might post a review of the books I’m reading later. Might.
