Exercising at home

I talked on my blog about exercising at home many times, from the 5 minutes workout to Insanity (I’m not at the fitness level I was back in 2012) and to VR (I have another set right now). In 2019 I tried to workout at the gym, but the unpleasant staff made me want to […]


January 2021

January is Veganuary. While this does not influence my diet at all, being almost vegan (with the exception of honey, but I rarely do eat that anyway), it had a huge impact in the number of things, as I could buy lots and lots of new things from the supermarkets. M&S Food was amazing, like […]


Goals for 2021

I hope 2021 will be a more predictable year than 2020. Even so, I will set up some goals, even if I will not be able to achieve them. The goals are in three categories: blogs, personal, and travel. Goals for 2021: Blogs 1. Post regularly. My goal is to post all book reviews on […]


Goals for 2020. How I did

I talked about my 2020, today I’m going to talk about goals I set up at the beginning of 2020 and a review of what I managed to achieve (or not). Some of the things I planed couldn’t happen because of the pandemic, obviously. Even so, I was able to achieve most of my goals, […]


My 2020, by month

Many people complain about 2020, but I don’t think it was a bad year, overall. The pandemic was not unlikely considering that we are pressing into wildlife habitat that we are highly interconnected with, hence it was not inevitable. For a pandemic, it could have been much worse, when the death rate is less than […]

Festus' 11th gotcha day

December 2020

December was an incredible month, UK was the first country to authorize a vaccine for COVID-19 and in 2 weeks over 600,000 people were vaccinated. How amazing is that. After rather surprising comments from Fauci and EU about the rapidity in which the vaccine was approved in UK… US approved the same one and over […]

All three

Christmas 2020

As I do each year, I’m sharing pictures from our Christmas. For us Christmas was not too dissimilar from the previous years, as we always celebrate the Christmas at home, all three of us. We’ve decided to take selfies instead of the staged photos. Festus did great and looked directly at the camera. It was […]

Michaelmas Term

Michaelmas Term

I can’t believe the second Michaelmas term ended this week. It’s been a longer term, which started in early September with a full-time week, 8 hours/day, before starting work on the first essay. It was really different than the first year, as I did a few new things, which I’m going to talk about next. […]

Christmas Gift Guide Books. Barack Obama

Christmas Gift Guide: Books

I’ve decided to make a Christmas Gift Guide with Books for book lovers and not only. All the books I’ve included are non-fiction because this is what I most enjoy, but, at the same time, it’s something that it’s more likely to remain on the bookshelves of the people who might receive one or two […]

Christmas Dinner

November 2020

I can’t start to talk about this month without thinking of the horrific accident that happened in yesterday’s F1 race. Romain Grosjean crashed into the barrier, with the car splitting in half and the part with the cockpit turned into a fireball, and I’m not exaggerating in any way. It was so distressing to see […]
