So, just a quick update, three friends, my sister and I, watched V for Vendetta on Friday. What a stunning movie! Highly recommended!
A brief summary: it is a political thriller set in a dystopian United Kingdom. There is of course some graphic violence, but this isn’t your run of the mill action movie. Here is a link to V for Vendetta’s page on Metacritic.
At some point during the movie, this thought crossed my mind yet again: humans have been dealing with more or less the same issues for millennia, just cast into new contexts, new settings, performed with new props and new backdrops.
Now, with reference to my post about my priorities, this was supposed to be my one social gathering for the week. This week didn’t exactly turn out that way… My conclusion? It’s planning a little too far ahead (I blogged about it on 27 March). I think I should rather rely on short-term planning, allowing more flexibility to adapt to changing circumstances. (Got too little work done, or other “more important” social events occurred during the week? No social gathering then. A very effective, hard working week, with no distractions whatsoever? By all means, relax on Friday evening, planned maybe Friday morning or on Thursday.) Saving time now: not adding any pic to this post, even though it really ought to have one.
This week was somewhat productive, but not even close to productive enough! I’ve started writing down what I spend my time on, as inspired by scarily strict auditing practices.
