Frankly, it’s the same old, same old, with the time dragging on.
Except that I got my booster shot.
And then the omicron variant showed up in the world, and people are panicking even though we have no idea yet whether it made the vaccines ineffective.
Yay for panicking. Not.
And yay for boring myself by starting each and every post by talking about the darn covid. Again, not.
So, what else am I doing?
The usual: working when there’s work, reading, watching stuff, and, surprisingly enough, even writing a few short-short stories in Serbian. The links for them are here.
Currently reading: The Best of World SF: Volume 1, edited by Lavie Tidhar. I loved some stories, some made me wonder what the heck did I just read, one felt too long… Basically, it’s all to be expected when reading an anthology (and I’m only halfway through).
Recently read: a bunch of books. A Psalm for the Wild-Built by Becky Chambers (really nice), Mein Tag im anderen Land: Eine Dämonengeschichte by Peter Handke (definitely an unusal read), then a bunch of books in Serbian (Kraj raspusta i druge priče by Ana Miloš, Zovite me Esteban i druge priče by Lejla Kalamujić (loved that one), Sićušne priče (a nice anthology of microfiction by numerous authors), Smrtni ishod atletskih povreda by Milica Vučković (not an easy read, about a toxic relationship and what leads to it), Varoška legenda: Prvi sneg and Varoška legenda: Đavolji tefter by Tajana Poterjahin (nice old-fashioned writing, and I can’t wait for the last part to be published), Dum-dum by Pavle Zelić (some of the stories he wrote in the last 20 years, time sure does fly), Uzvišenost by Darko Tuševljaković (a dystopic tale turning into a hopeful one), Moj put istine and Sarajka u Beogradu i druge drame by Isidora Bjelica (brought back memories, and I miss her), and Firentinski dublet – Kjaroskuro by Goran Skrobonja and Ivan Nešić).
Is that a lot? Or too little? I’m never sure; I know that some people read a lot more than I do. But I enjoyed reading these, and I guess that’s what counts.
Currently watching: nothing. It would be difficult to read that much and watch something. I did finish watching the first season of Foundation, and I can’t say that I’m eager for the next one, even if I won’t be able to resist watching it.
Currently working on: work, when there’s any, and as usual, work comes and goes. Plus on some microfiction, which is nice.
So, I’m actually writing from time to time? Sorta… Kinda… No promises.
I am. After a long while.
That would be it for now, see you next time!
