We threw a party a yesterday because a bunch of people have birthday in this time. Was very nice. One of my housemates djed their room and played grime trap and hip-hop which was very welcome as far as I'm concerned. We made cakes and cookies and lasagne.

More sadly, a pet here was ran over by a car, and another pet here was discovered to have a large tumour in her brain, and the owner thinks the best option is euthanasia when the animal's pain is too great.

Have got my partner visiting this weekend, which is nice but she's pretty depressed and it's bringing me down too.

Failed a programming challenge earlier this week for a job application but the company seemed boring anyway so I'm calling it a win..

A lot of moving people's stuff and carrying furniture around this week as a bunch of us moved into new renovated rooms upstairs this week and some new people moved in too. Everyone has so much more stuff then I do. Also clearing out rooms downstairs so we can start to renovate them in the next time. I can say it's a nice having a radiator again after spending the last winters heating with a wood stove.

We had a fire on wednesday with mulled wine despite some rain, and drove yesterday to a project in a nearby city for a winter dinner. We burned a christmas tree.

have to do a coding challenge next week for a job I'm not sure I want.

I think its Heroes Die by Matthew Stover

Its set in a future Earth which has a corporate caste society. The book follows multiple people, but the main protagonist is an 'Actor'. He kind of goes to an alternate sort of fantasy universe and has 'adventures' there and his experiences are broadcast back as entertainment for the higher classes. Its extremely violent and dark, but follows a man who is kind of stuck between the government of the world he acts on and his boss on Earth. I really enjoyed this story.

I also enjoyed Four Ways to Forgiveness by Ursela Le Guin

This is 4 short stories basically in the aftermath of the revolution of an enslaved planet against its coloniser.

Had a job interview yesterday, have another with another company on tuesday. This weekend I will see some old coworkers/friends and maybe they have a chance for me too.

Separately I've been awake for less than 90 minutes and have made 3 fires today already.

Have also been here on this site for at least 4 years. I'm pretty sure I made another older account which I forgot the password to.

Yea me too, I've been waiting for Joey Badass to drop for ages I feel like, but then again I think Kendrick released Damn around the same time Joey dropped All Amerikkkan Badass, like 5 years ago.

I would recommend Kendrick's record, also saw him in a concert this summer which was very good
