• We started and finished watching the Netflix series Shadow and Bone on Saturday. The season ended on a cliffhanger and I literally can’t stop thinking about it. I felt like I was in that fantasy world for 8 hours. The series is kind of like Game of Thrones but without the gore and sex. The main character is half-asian and that’s sort of relevant to the story. The other characters are all very endearing (and diverse). The good news is that season 2 has been confirmed by Netflix.

  • My clothes have been fitting more snugly for the past couple months. I decided to just get a new set of athleisure clothing so I can live more comfortably in my current body. I got these sweatpants from Lululemon in size 8 (I was a size 6) and found them to be extremely comfortable! They do cost a small fortune… so I’ll be wearing these for the rest of my life. I am really tempted to get another pair in a different colour but I’ve decided to wait until the end of May to treat myself.

  • My unofficial cut is going well. I’m at an average of 14,000 steps this week without that much effort. I used my under-desk treadmill more than my actual treadmill. We also started going back to the gym. I’m down ~3 lbs (including water weight) which I think is a decent loss over a week considering I didn’t change my diet at all.

  • I went on my weekly window shopping for games on the PS4 even though I don’t yet on the console. I’ve been tracking the prices of a couple of games and Dynasty Warriors 8 was on sale and I bought it. It’s a hack and slash game with local co-op on campaign mode. I used to play the much older predecessor on the PS3 and would like to see if I still enjoy it.

  • In the later years of my undergrad, I knew I wanted to do something in tech: either coding, data science or design. I tried my best to make sure those options were available to me by hustling hard: applying to tech internships, and applying to grad school for design and health sciences. Throughout that period of my life, I was anxious about getting my first choice out of all the options (which was a software engineering internship) but I don’t think I was ever worried about my future because I had all my backup plans.

    I’ve been thinking a lot about the future of my career for the past two weeks. After chatting with several people at work, I’m convinced I’m on the right path even though it’s less obvious what the right path is. At least, compared to when I was in school. I don’t know what I’m doing but trying my best is what I do best!
