Reading: The Happiness of Pursuit, by entrepreneur and blogger Chris Guillebeau. While visiting every country in the world, Chris came across a community online and offline that showed him the importance of having a quest and how that can bring you as much happiness as the end goal. It’s an easy and quick read, much like his own blog, but that makes you think and question several things in your own life.
Playing: Assassin’s Creed Unity on PS4. Set in Paris during the French Revolution, the game has a lot of new features and relies heavily on online and multiplaying modes, which I personally don’t enjoy so much. But the companion app, AC Nomads is fun and keeps me busy during my lunch breaks at work. Too soon to tell but I doubt this one will be as good as the ones with Ezio Auditore.
Watched: Nightcrawler, with Jake Gyllenhaal as Lou Bloom, a freelance cameraman chasing crime scenes and accidents. Oh, and he’s also a very motivated sociopath who talks like life is a continuous job interview. Haunting, and packed with embarrassing moments that cause laughter just because that’s slightly less awkward than silence, it shows how far someone can go when armed with a goal and a plan.
I’m also working on improving my pace and listening to Nerdist episodes everyday on my way to work. What about you? What’s keeping you busy or keeping you company to pass the time?
