I didn’t think twice before buying this book, because obviously, Tom Hanks. Unfortunately, it is boring. Very boring. The stories are dull, lacking an edge to them and the narrative is too monotonous, almost robot-like.
But here’s a magical trick: try reading it in Tom Hanks’ voice. The effect is dramatic, I even bought the audiobook narrated by non other than Hanks himself. It actually put a smile on my face. 🙂
Damn. That was brutal in ways I can’t begin to describe. The kind of of books that leave you hiding in your room, because you would look so lame crying at your phone screen.
You venture into this story knowing full well how it ends (spoiler alert: they both die at the end), but when it comes, you’re never ready for it. No one is ever ready for death. And it broke my heart.
What would you do if you knew it was your last day to live?
I wanted to track my achievements in 2020, so I marked every hospital shift, every run, bike ride, swim, every book finished and every academic achievement. It’s been an eventful year! In 2020, I had:
– 75 hospital shifts.
– 69 runs/running-related activity.
– 30 bike rides.
– 12 swims.
– 1 academic achievement.
– 3 books finished (I planned to finish 100, but I forgive myself). 😀
– I did some yoga and strength training but failed to track the number.
So 2020 wasn’t the worst after all 🤷🏻♀️
So what did you achieve in 2020?
