This has been an absolutely mad month and I look forward to maybe having a calmer August? Anyways I now have permanent employment and live in the United States, it's wild. I read a lot of books and watched a lot of Netflix in the midst of this madness.

February is the weirdest word; I keep looking at it convinced I'm spelling it wrong even though I've confirmed I'm not three times. I guess it's because it's not pronounced the way it's spelled.

Does time speed up when you get older? Is that a thing? How are we a month into 2016 already, I'm PRETTY SURE there's got to be some kind of time magic involved.

Aaaand that's 2015. Happy belated New Year to all. I've got some pretty statistics here, let's see how I did with my year's goals.

This year I read a total of 84 books, 132 volumes of comic books (manga included), watched 17 movies, and more television than I can be bothered to count.

Goal: Read 10% non-fiction. Depends how you count it. I read 11 non-fiction books, mostly memoirs. If I count books alone then that's 11/84 which slides in at 13%. If I don't cheat awfully and count comic books, I have 11/216 which makes a pathetic 5%. Goal half achieved? Will try again this year.

Goal: [community profile] 50books_poc scaled down: 30 POC-authored books. Read 32, goal achieved. Scale this up to try for 50 this year.

Goal: Read and review at least one literary book per month on my professional blog. Failed horribly, I didn't even do one. /o\ Forget the literary bit, I just want to revive my professional blog again. Will try to post at least once a month this year, can be either book reviews or any topic related to librarianship.

Goal: Try to watch more movies? Watched 13 last year, watched 17 this year. Success!

All in all, managed about half of what I wanted? And it was the easier half that did not require substantial changes to my habits. >_> I will try to do better in 2016! Let's move on to December's media as I quietly shuffle out of the room.

Did you know you can load up e-books to read on your phone? I was aware of this in theory but I did not realize that in practice it is genuinely simple. It's....probably obvious at which point I figured this out from my book list.

So April. Read a decent amount this month and fell into a Leverage blackhole. Not quite sure what I'm going to do with myself now that I'm out of con artist adventures to fill up all my free time. Socialize maybe?
