Spent the whole day waiting anxiously for an email if I got the job, the waiting was so intense that I needed to do something to take my mind off of it and so I binged the entirety of the "Chainsaw Man" manga (so far) since I have been enjoying the anime adaptation so far.
Damn, that was one hell of a trip, so many emotions that it's hard to describe. One thing I do know is that I'm not sure how to feel about Chainsaw Man Part 2, it's giving me major "Tokyo Ghoul: RE" vibes. Hopefully I'll come to love it just as much as Part 1.
Just got back from Guy Fawkes' Night. The people running the fireworks show were clearly out of practice since they were blatantly out of sync and only the climax had a particularly interesting design pattern. But low key, it was so much fun to be out celebrating the day again, hanging out with people in the freezing cold November air and nattering about how the kids these days don't even understand why we do this every year.
Yesterday evening I watched "The Jungle Book" (1942) live action adaptation of the Rudyard Kipling stories, starring the iconic Indian actor Sabu as Mowgli. Upon reading a bit more about the original book and how most of the characters are apparently named after real Hindi words, I became interested in the language and have been spending the day studying it. Certainly seems like a fun language and I certainly wouldn't turn down adding another notch to my belt of polyglottery.
