Zuko Picture of the Week

Couch pillows strewn strewn all over the couch with my black cat looking up at me guiltily with big green eyes

What Happened

  • Booked my vaccine! It’s next week! :)

  • Said goodbye to a couple of friends who quit working at my company. :(

  • Downloaded Mass Effect Legendary Edition and started playing it. A couple of my friends have been playing it and I’ve been feeling the nostalgia hard. I recreated my OG character. My OG character was named Lucy, after Lucy from Assassin’s Creed.

Commander Shepard of colonist origin, ruthless reputation, and vanguard class. Shep has her blonde hair pulled back into a ponytail, some strands of hair falling into her face. Her face is long and full, a serious expression glued to her face.

  • Good news, last week I learned you can buy back limited edition items that you’ve lost so I regained back my spring flower after I died. I also levelled up five levels! And joined a party. We’ve been pretty active and going through quests.

My little habitica character with only one sword, riding a panda with a baby panda sitting on the ground.

Goals Review

  • Lose weight
    • :upside-down-face: I ordered too much this week but at least I didn’t order pizzas.
  • Read more
    • Finished reading Daughter of Fortune by Isabel Allende and Pretend You Love Me (formerly Far From Xanadu) by Julie Anne Peters.
    • Started reading The Wife Between Us by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen. I like it so far even though it’s like a stereotypical rich white people story. Hopefully it proves me wrong.
  • Waste less time
    • Back on the wagon with FocusMate sessions!

  8. Honey, This Mirror Isn’t Big Enough For the Two of Us by My Chemical Romance
  9. Aoede by Mashrou’ Leila
  10. Dance In The Rain by 倖田來未

I found downy on Bandcamp and I did not hestitate in buying their latest untitled album. I listened to it more than a couple of times, hence all the downy tracks.

Honestly, I’m surprised to see that My Chemical Romance track on this list. I don’t recall listening to that song as much. Not complaining though, it’s a classic. I’m also surprised to see Dance In the Rain as well. For some reason, my music player shuffle loves to play it.

Top Albums

  1. 第七作品集『無題』 by downy (~)
  2. Ibn El Leil by Mashrou’ Leila
  3. The Beirut School by Mashrou’ Leila
  4. Kiss by L’Arc~en~Ciel

  6. Lush by Snail Mail (+1)
  7. Bury Me At Makeout Creek by Mitski
  8. Art of Doubt by Metric
  9. MAGDALENE by FKA twigs
  10. NOW by ギルガメッシュ

You can tell when I’m not using Spotify when you see a lot of ギルガメッシュ in my charts. Specifically, the NOW album. They’re just such a classic band. Also, 15th L’Anniversary Live is another big indicator. I swear, I’ve listened to Link so many times.

I’m surprised to see DIR EN GREY in this list. I don’t recall listening to them much, either. I need to put them on more, I miss experiencing their music.
