About

I made this about page because showing you my personality through the things I enjoy & abhor is personally preferable to describing it. I've always disliked that "tell me a bit about yourself" in personal environments. This page is still under construction. When it is complete, there will be a tldr of my bio, then a map of my facets.

Books

I like to read to learn about the world around me or get laughs. I have 51 books in my library (digital and non-digital), and I'm always looking for more. I prefer Non-Fiction, so I read about 0% fiction and 0% non-fiction.

I'm currently reading 3 books, which you can see below. My 10 most frequently read book tags are: Science, Horror, Nature, History, Environment, Cooking, Fantasy, Science Fiction, Historical, Philosophy.

The Geometry of Hand-Sewing
The Lost Art of Reading Nature’s Signs
Huareo: Story of a Jamaican Cacique

This graph below is my book status backlog for the past rolling year. This ignores books from before then to ensure that I'm keeping up my desired reading pace of 24 books for every 12 months with 70/30 Fiction to Non-Fiction. I have 15 books in my backlog.

I show all my read books, but I would now prefer to show you a short and random list of books I've read. A small heart means that I have it rated highly, while a cross means that I pretty much hated the book. The last book I read was How to Cook Everything: The Basics.

AI Superpowers: China, Silicon Valley, and the New World Order
by Kai-Fu Lee

Read March to July 2023

It gave me some food for thought on the intentions behind the 4 day workweek. I started reading this years ago so by now it's a lil outdated, but hits some very relevant topics. The sudden shift to the author's illness threw me for a loop, and I wasn't convinced by their optimistic outlook for the future of the workforce.

Games

My preference is playing indie games and games I physically own. I still play my Gameboy Advance and I own 3 different DSes. Not featured below: several untouched games from Steam and Itch.io. These are the main games in my rotation nowadays.

IdleOn
Shattered Pixel Dungeon
Etrian Odyssey II: Heroes of Lagaard
