Finished reading: Farewell, My Lovely by Raymond Chandler 📚

Finished reading: Thinking, Fast and Slow by Daniel Kahneman 📚I did it! That was a very heavy, lengthy read. But incredibly fascinating, too.

Lovely walk today. I find it mind blowing that the sun shining up there is a star and we’re whizzing around it at circa 67,000 MPH, but also mind blowing that most people don’t even ponder that fact and seem to spend a lot of time worrying about trivialities.

Guess I’ll be looking for another VR platform for my next headset, then.
