The Changelog – June 2024

The "worst month" ended up being better than expected. But it had to hit me with a flu.

Here in Italy, in June 2024, we had a lot of desert sand in the sky. This is basically how it felt doing errands for most of this month.

In the last issue, I lamented May’s lack of passion and my inability to connect with anything in particular. In June, instead, I caught up with everything. I got very invested in many things. I loved tons of movies, and I lost myself (and spent too much money) in a lot of different music genres.

The Changelog – May 2024

May was better than expected. Even if I had to deal with a week of flu. I read two books, watched 36 movies, binged the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, and listened to a lot of music. I also started playing Tunic.

The Changelog – April 2024

If I could summarize April 2024 it would be: 'it was nice, but it could have been better.'

Let’s see the three books I read in April 2024, the ending of Fallot and Shogun, a beautiful Japanese movie, and a never-ending album with 32 tracks. All that in a slowly declining mood. Hurray!

The Changelog – March 2024

Writing, reading, watching movies, and making music: at a very slow pace. And that's fine.

March flew by in a blink. For good reasons: I had some interesting work projects I focused on, and I spent the rest of the time reading, watching movies, and making music. While there were things I wanted to write (I have three rough blog posts drafts), it was a nice pace.

The Changelog – February 2024

Or, how I wathched more movies than ever in the shortest month of the year.

Let’s explore the events from last month! I’ll discuss why I moved my website back to my hosting server, how I watched more movies than I did in the last three years combined, the three books I read, DJ Rozwell’s roguelike album, and more.

The Changelog – January 2024

The neverending flu season.

The NaNoWriMo 2023 Winner Badge

This has been a month of ups and downs. I started the year with a flu comeback, and I ended it with a lot of interesting things. I started my movie bucket list, I read the grandfather of all noirs novels, and I completed Hogwarts Legacy. Just to name a few things.

The Books I Read in 2023

Another year. Another bunch of interesting books.

Cover of the books I read in 2023

After another 12 months, I am back with the traditional summary list of the books I read in the previous solar year. So here are my 35 books that I read in 2023.

The Changelog – December 2023

This issue will be another reduced and unconventional one. In fact, as I write this, I am still recovering from a winter flu. It seems to be a 2023 tradition that every time I take a week off from work, I am struck by some pathogen. This year, I swear…

My Default Apps for 2023

Jumping on the bandwagon of the default apps for 2023 blog trend. What a time to be alive.

The Changelog – November 2023

How I handled the unexpected energy of November.

The NaNoWriMo 2023 Winner Badge

After the obnoxious events of last October, I had no hope for November. If you recall, I was exhausted, psychologically drained, and quite certain that I would have started digging. Instead, the thing that happens every time I stop caring happened: I start doing things without overthinking them, I put myself in unpredictable situations, and – as a consequence – things changes.
