I don’t know about you, but I’m still in self-quarantine, which means way more time to do home-based things. Not everybody is in the mood or mental headspace to be productive and do a bunch of online courses. And spending so much time inside four walls can get quite boring (especially knowing you should stay

What I Read in September

September was an interesting month. And, I don’t know about you, but I feel like it lasted a total of 10 seconds. And in this small amount of time, I managed to start various books but finish only two short ones. The Invisible Life of Euridice Gusmão by Martha Batalha The Invisible Life of Euridice
