I woke up before 5am today thanks to the jetlag but other than being a bit sleepy I have survived the journey. The covid-related procedures on the Narita airport took extra 2.5-3 hours, but at least I’d get notified if the person next to me on the plane had covid. All in all, it wasn’t terrible, but I probably won’t be willing to leave the country again until they get rid of the extra tests and quarantines. I was lucky to not get covid before my flight back. It was definitely great to see my family and friends after those 3 years. Now we’re waiting for the borders to open, so that they can visit me in return 🙂
I read Aspects when in Poland but this book shouldn’t have been published. It’s not finished (it ends abruptly mid-chapter since the author died unexpectedly) and it has no plot. It seems to be a collection of scenes focusing on world-building. The prose and said world-building are excellent, don’t get me wrong, but there’s just no story there. I think someone wanted to earn some final money of the author… I’m reading The Bladed Faith now but haven’t gone far yet and still listening to A River Enchanted but I just can’t get into that one. I think it confuses me that the characters’ emotional response to what’s going on is most of the time weird and confusing to me (they react strongly to pretty much everything so the plot events drown in the bog of less important stuff). I’ll probably finish it, but my initial enthusiasm is gone at this point. My fiance is reading Children of Time and he’s absolutely in love hahaha
Well, hopefully I’ll be conscious enough this week to both work and draw the next comic page. Keep your fingers crossed!
