(Y-10) Indulging and getting back on track

My mood is really fluctuating thing.

I am an outgoing person, sociable and most of the time my mood is really mild and easy going.

But also there is always, just under the surface, my sad vein, it pops its ugly head whenever and wherever it feels like.

I start to see the signs.

I can’t concentrate, so my reading goes to the toilet, also, my insomnia kicks in, I’m awake but my brain is basically green jelly.

Fortunately, I have the biggest, brightest and most beautiful warrior by my side, of course, I’m talking about my best friend and wife.

She is there to kick me in the ass and lift me up.

She brought to my attention that I was spiraling and I should refocus on the things that I loved like music, reading, eating and drinking (mostly coffee and alcohol).

But not only that, I should somehow integrate all of this to this blog in a sort of personal public journal.

So, I took her advice and I will integrate more of the things I love.

The first thing was indulging in this great little restaurant, El Mimbre, we went for breakfast, and boy it was a whole experience.

To start the restaurant is almost hidden from the main street at is on, so you experience this relax and quiet atmosphere that rarely you can find in a busy city like ours.

Secondly, the food.

The Glorious Food

We had some dishes featuring mole from the beautiful state of Veracruz, everything was cooked to perfection, including my blue corn tortillas, made from scratch and right at the moment you order it.

This will be, I suspect, one of our go-to places to relax and eat some amazing food.

On the coffee side of things, I received a little sample from a local coffee roasting house, this particular batch is from the beautiful state of Oaxaca, and it is nutty and floral in all its glory.

 

And finally, on the book front, I have finished the eleventh book of the Legend of Drizzt saga, The Silent Blade, and are right now starting with the twelfth book of the series, The Spine of the World.

My total for this year is 11,344 pages.

Still, some 85,000 pages to go and about 230 days to do it.

Happy Readings!!!

(Y-10) Captain Crunch and Wytches

Last night my insomnia poke its little ugly head, so, I took advantage and finish one of my digital graphic novel, Wytches by Scott Snyder, some really creepy shit, and all of this while endulging in a gigantic bowl of midnight cereal, for this occasion the good Captain Crunch was there to sweeten the journey.

Also, I made some head way with Passage to Dawn and started with the first collection of Jason Aaron run on Doctor Strange, The way of the weird indeed.

Happy Readings!!!

(Y-10) numbers or the effect of not sleeping.

Well, is safe to say that my insomnia is alive and well.

Today was a particularly early morning, 2:40 a.m. to be precise.

But I’m determined to make the best of my current situation, and believe me have tried a lot of things and it won’t succumb.

The funny thing is, in spite of sleeping an average of 4 hours a night for the past two weeks, I don’t feel tired.

So, these long nights have become a source of reading time.

With that in mind, I prepared some numbers of my progress of this the tenth year of reading.

Here it goes:

Total for (Y-10)  3,425 pages

Total pages left for (Y-10)  93,341 pages

Total for Lost in a million pages  204,380 pages

Total pages left for Lost in a million pages:   795,620 pages

Time left in original deadline of the project (a.k.a. my 50th birthday) 

13 years, 6 months and 15 days.

Of the total reading of this year, almost half of it has been in the past two weeks.

That’s putting my insomnia toward something useful.

Happy Readings!!!
