There were some suggestions for new features and other improvements. I don't have the energy and time to work on them, yet. I did update some dependencies and fixed a minor bug, though.


I finished the peer review.

We also had an outing on Friday. It was the second time I met my coworkers. We had lunch together and then chatted until evening.

It was fun. We ate at an all-you-can-eat restaurant, so I ate a lot. Yum 🥩

Fun stuff

Sam had an interview for a Software Engineering bootcamp on Thursday. He asked me to do a mock interview on Wednesday. We thought it was going to be a coding interview, so we did a few questions. Turned out, it wasn't a coding interview 🤷

I played badminton with my high school friends again on Saturday. There were seven of us and we played at a different court this time. We also had lunch together after that.

After a quick chat with Sam on Saturday, we played Clone Hero again. A couple of our friends also joined. We played some Indonesian songs from the 2000s, some songs from GTA San Andreas, and other stuff from our childhood. It was a nostalgia trip.

I started playing Fallout 3 on Sunday. I'd been meaning to play it for years, but I hadn't got into it for some reason.

I love the retrofuturistic setting. The soundtrack mostly consists of 40s-50s music, which I've loved ever since I played Mafia II and BioShock as they also have similar soundtracks. I think I'm going to be enjoying it a lot.

I also finished reading The Great Gatsby. I initially started reading it just after I bought it a few months ago, but I found the book to be very hard to read. It uses some old, uncommon phrases that I don't quite understand. I decided to restart and just tried to push through it this week. After the first few chapters, it got much easier.

The story was interesting, and I liked how everything played out in the end.

Now I'm curious what the movie adaptation looks like. I think I'm going to watch it next week.
