/COLLECTED//GOODNESS/


/APRIL 2020 NOTES/
- Read Bartleby, The Scrivener, How to Take Smart Notes (this changed the way I read and write), Resurrecting Easter (this blew my mind), Siddhartha (this…should be read by everyone), Gratitude (beautiful! short! sweet!), and Isaacson’s biography on Leonardo da Vinci. Began Breath by Breath.

- Listened to some older stuff — Dark Night of the Soul by Sparklehorse, Ben Harper’s earlier albums, Dr. Dre’s Compton. These are all still very, very good. 
- Watched Bastards of the Party (an incredible documentary you can only find on YouTube) and Straight Outta Compton, so complementary! Also watched Baby Driver, more West Wing, and started Never Have I Ever.
- Played more Warzone (a perfect ‘just one round’ game) and started Nier: Automata.
