Alright, quick update. I got three books to review here and I’ll do it soon. One was written by a friend (another friend I met because of the video games, so don’t tell me it’s a waste of time) and I’m very proud of being able to write a review on it. Later in month I also have a rather different play (theatre) to attend, so I’ll speak of that too. And there’s an art gallery open at the moment, by a local artist, so hopefully I’ll manage to get there before it’s closed too, for I wish to review the local fella too. Other than that thou, my b-day is coming up. I feel like groaning about it, but meh, what are b-days for us, right?
I still gave myself some presents tho. First I bought myself a video game I wanted, it was on sale at Steam, and I got it. Now I have all but one game of Dracula on Steam. Next goal – all the Dracula games on gog.com. I have no shame and I don’t regret anything. The other presents were of course books. Who would I be were I not surrounded by books and writings? So with a little bit encouragement from a friend, I got myself H.P. Lovecraft “Classic Horror Stories” (the father of horror and probably the godfather or at least the most favorite uncle of occult arts), and Dr Gregory L. Reece “Creatures of the Night: In Search of Ghosts, Vampires, Werewolves and Demons“, which could be either great or horrible. Both on discount, both came in just a few days, all thanks to BookDepository.
Library for once made me happy. They found the Robert Lory “Dracula Returns” for me, for once. I was rather angry the first time, when the very same woman didn’t exactly know the classical Dracula book and rather gave me a blueprint of it. I mean, I didn’t mind getting a book I haven’t yet had in my claws, but come on, know the classics at least.
I’m also almost done with Haruki Murakami 1Q84 trilogy. So far I find it a little bit too expanded, but good. I’ll breath lighter when I’m done with him tho. There’s just something in those books. And I’ve watched a couple of movies, one worth mentioning. Funny thing tho, I haven’t yet watched the last episode of “Free!” anime. I’m not sure why, it just seems that if I don’t – it’ll never end, even if I won’t see anything of it again anyways.
This is exactly how I spend my days – I write, I translate and I read. Then at night I play a video game, get to bed and read some more, or watch a serie of anime or anything. In the morning waking up isn’t the nicest activity, but as soon as I do – all goes well enough. I make a half-hour of exercise, write down my notes on what I’ve done so far and what I should do and continue the day with short breaks to chat with friends, delve into Tumblr or even draw something. And I made some good stuff, drop an eye there: DeviantArt.
