Aaand break over (also the moon!)

Another summer holiday done. Didn't figure out my future yet... But played quite a bit of violin and studied some, strange how one can pick up very fundamental ideas about subjects I've known for over a decade, that's why one has to keep reading. Went on a few road-trips with the family and spent some evenings with friends. After one evening of Secret Hitler where I managed to get elected chancellor as Hitler, close to midnight we ended up playing padel/paddle with a soft soccer ball and my brand new Portuguese leather shoes, not ideal. Weird sentence that.

What else is new... Signed up for Spotify at long last, a friend sent me a link to "Everybody" that I'll listen to one day. And today I decided I've delved sufficiently deep into the real invisible global network, so why not sign up for Netflix and start watching Stranger Things? Finally! This show is THREE years old and I've wanted to see it for most of that time. I'm so silly. Perfect for David Harbour, he always drew the short straw in the films I saw him in, but he's doing a good job here.

Oh yeah, there was a wedding for a friend of mine, shouldn't forget that. Started a bit slow since I knew very few people there, but it usually picks up after a while. Was dragged onto the dance floor twice and managed not to severely injure anybody while flailing around, so I feel like I did a good job.

The idea now for my evenings is to keep studying and play the violin, doing mainly Bourée and Gigue of BWV1006 nowadays. I'll figure it "all" out one day...

One more episode of Stranger Things and then I'll go to bed for my first working day after the vacation!

EDIT 2019-07-19: Stranger Things is amazing! I really have to stop watching and get to bed...

EDIT 2019-07-20: Poor Will, he has to endure so much. Also, big moon landing anniversary! I'll have a lot of cheese, that's the most moon-like thing I can think of. And lastly, a newspaper asked in a quiz when the original Lion King came out. Oooooh-hoo, a lot of us know about the original, don't we Disney? Tactics is the real justice in this world.

EDIT 2019-07-23: So, three seasons of steady decline. Each season ends very well, but the main plot of each gets dumber and dumber. I don't have as many complaints as most other critics, but it's really getting too goofy. Also, way too many sound effects. Still not as bad a tumble as the new Star Warses, so I'll keep watching.
