Just finished reading “Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game” by Michael Lewis. Very interesting blend of baseball, business, and boldness. He lost me during the all-statistics chapters but he did great with the human interest part of the story. Will write a more comprehensive book review once I have the time (when will that be?!).
Now I need to see the movie 😛
I’ve just finished reading Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan (review over here) and Eleven Scandals to Start to Win a Duke’s Heart by Sarah Maclean (YES I have a soft spot for romance novels. Don’t judge me.). So what’s next? Right now, it’s a toss-up between Heat Rises (the third Richard Castle book), Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game, and Star Wars: Choices of One. Those who know me well can predict which one I’ll be reading next 😛
Eight days till Hong Kong yeah! 😀
Yes, I’m still on the island 😛 We were supposed to go diving today to install the sediment traps in my study sites but had to cancel because we didn’t have a boat. Oh well. We used the time to do office work instead – drafting the company’s sustainability policy and writing new bedtime stories for our guests. Got to play Monopoly on my friend’s laptop as well. LOL. Hopefully the seas will be calm tomorrow and it’ll be SUNNY. Gosh. It rained for practically the whole day.
Maybe I should take pictures during the sediment trap installation tomorrow and show people how unglamorous marine science research really is 😛
No, I haven’t fallen off the face of the Earth. LOL. I just have two things going for me: 1) no laptop because the power adaptor broke just as I got to the island, and 2) fieldwork and lots of it! Will update when I can, which will most probably be when I go back to Manila next week. Until then, check my Twitter account for micro-updates 😀
