Last weekend I had the chance to go to my first haute cuisine French restaurant, and I wasn’t blown away and I gather my sense of taste has been spoiled by all the spicy food I eat and although I found it delicious, it just didn’t feel exciting. Perhaps I’m a simpleton that would stick to comfort food such as ramen or some street stand tacos…
Things I’m working on
Still networking! It’s been honestly been so exhausting and absorbing I barely have time for leisure. I was invited to a film screening at the Council of Europe, organised by the Mexican Mission and I got to hand over some business cards. I didn’t push the subject of my flag exhibit and I was happy to see they remember it; in fact, they’re planning on showing it to the ambassador himself, so I am playing the patience game.
Things I’ve enjoyed
I can’t praise the candour, execution, music selection and overall aesthetic and British flair behind The End of the F**king World enough. It’s unconventional, witty, endearing, relatable and I adore it. Best show I’ve seen so far this year. Go run see it.
Things I’m struggling with
Oh, don’t get me started.
Things I’ve learnt
Speaking of the end of the world, this video seems fitting; who knew life on the planet has an estimated 200 million years left even in the Sun still has billions ahead of it? Cheery stuff for the weekend.
I’m honestly in awe of how creative and dynamic Vox’s videos and I am also incredibly jealous of how talented their videographers are. It’s ridiculous. I am also switching to a grayscale filter so I don’t keep looking at my phone every five minutes.
Things I’m listening to
A newly found podcast episode, Undiscovered on the history of how important science was made. This one in particular, on how we are all connected and the curious math behind it.
