LEAST FAVOURITE BOOK.
A collection of stories, set in the same world created by Greg Rucka for his The Old Guard franchise, by numerous writers and artists that just didn’t work.
Out of the 11 movies I watched in January 2022, Jagten (The Hunt) (2012) was my favourite. Having binged a bunch of Mads Mikkelsen’s movies, I can convincingly say that this Danish movie really did highlight his acting skills and put him on everyone’s radar.
Jagten (The Hunt) (2012) is about a teacher who lives a lonely life, all the while struggling over his son’s custody. His life slowly gets better as he finds love and receives good news from his son, but his new luck is about to be brutally shattered by an innocent little lie.
This was a frustrating yet brilliant examination of social stigmatization amidst a village’s deeply-ingrained false belief of children being the purveyors of truth.
Working my way through this big guy. More on this soon!
January was pretty insane! The first half was dedicated to preparing our big move into our new place. Thankfully, it was still within the same city, under 20 minutes from our previous places. The big move happened on the 15th, and as I described in a previous post, it was a rough yet exciting week that followed, filled with our fair share of issues regarding access to big appliances and Internet. Afterward, we quickly and smoothly transitioned into our new home, started to figure out a new routine, and are working our way towards understanding how to make it all work so that everything just seems natural. If anything, I couldn’t have asked for a better first experience as a homeowner.
Obviously, with all that going on, my hobbies took a hit and I’m totally fine with it, considering that it was expected after all. I am, however, now trying to figure out a way to make every piece of that puzzle fit into the grander scheme of our daily life now. As much I’d like to coordinate my actions to the very little second, I also know that I much prefer taking all the time in the world to do certain things, to forbid time to pressure me into being in a state where I can’t appreciate the little things. I also can’t forget that we’re still living under numerous pandemic-related health measures that come and go, making it harder to establish routines outside of our home. All I know is that January proved to be a great month with huge life accomplishments and it has made me realize all the fantastic things I can now look forward to in February!
