After a rough week last time things are kinda more calm this week? Not much has changed really but perhaps I am just more numb to it.
But I feel like we’re done talking about that for now. One thing I’ve been doing a lot more these days is reading. Right now I am reading Tokyo Vice that I got recommend to here. It is a lovely little book about sex, booze, journalism, and some stuff about the Yakuza in Japan. But reading it I am honestly more fascinated about how crazy it seems to have been to be a journalist in the 90s Japan.
I’ve also read my first manga in like forever. Never read that much manga ever. But I did read Love hina and Dragon ball when I was around 13-15 years old. Out of curiosity however, I bought the first book in the in the *takes a deep breath* “I’ve been killing Slimes for 300 years and maxed out my level”-manga. Not sure how I discovered this one. But because I googled it ones the book kept coming up as an ad everywhere to remind me that it existed. It might say something how stressful my life is now since I eventually actually clicked on the ad and bought it.
But it was nice reading something so lighthearted, and I feel like I read too few comics in general. So I will probably buy the next volume aswell. (Hmmm, would be nice to go to a book store nearby and get it. Maybe go to some bar afterwards so I can sit outside and read it in the sunshine. Okay I got that planned now.) I have also bought “In Real Life” , a comic I haven’t read yet. But heard good things about.
Anyway, here are some suggested topics for today:
- What are you reading right now? Or read recently? What sort of books do you prefer?
- What is your favorite comic?
- If the answer to the last one is “Calvin and Hobbes” let’s talk about that you and me, friend. :)
- Have you ever clicked on an ad and bought something from it?
- Or talk about anything.
Edit one day later: I am a man of my word. But they didn’t have the comic I wanted so bought another one.
