Fifty one today. I have Walnut Whips, Turkish Delight and a new book.

I need to make an effort to read more books. One of my favourite pastimes is watching movies and great TV shows; the trouble is, that gets in the way of the enormous pile of books that I should be reading.

So, here’s what I think I should try and do. Every Monday, once the house is empty, I will spend several hours reading; by my reckoning, I should be able to read most books within that time frame.

From Monday, look out for a picture of the cover of the book that I am reading on that day. If I can consume as many books as I do movies and TV, I might improve my mental well-being.


62: Relativity

I have decided to try to reduce the amount of time that I sit in front of my computer every day.

I want to post relevant things to this blog, but I will limit doing so to just once a day via my PC.

The WordPress Android app is an excellent way to be able to create post drafts, so by combining the app and by using a notebook to capture my thoughts throughout the day, I hope to minimise my screen time.

Hopefully, that will free up some time for me to catch up on the pile of books that I have got to read.

I am still on the fence about Twitter and Instagram. Both of those platforms will be placed into hibernation for a bit so that I can take a while to think through what I am going to do with my digital life.

I said back at the start of the year that I will be turning my back on the traditional social media channels; I am hoping that will be the case by the end of the year.

For now, though, I have a Fortnite birthday party to organise.
