2023 Week 22
The first week of June was a little bit rainy, though not as much as a supertyphoon would have brought. I think PAGASA already declared an official start to the rainy season?

The week was a bit busy. Last week's weeknotes came late because I was busy through Monday. Tuesday had to get some errands done and had to help my parents prep for a long trip to the province. Got a bit of a respite in the middle of the week, but had more activities Friday and Saturday.
Wrote about how you can write about anything.
- Single player: Still playing a lot of Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. The Switch says I have played it for "85 hours or more", which is surprisingly only 15 hours more than last week's estimate. I guess I really did manage to temper my play time!
- I tried to hit Mythic rank in Magic Arena, but fell short by a couple of ranks.
- I am a bit down on Marvel Snap, mostly because I am already series 3 complete and that means I don't get new cards very often when climbing collection level, and that makes playing much less exciting. (I can still get variants, but I care very little for cosmetics!) It is unlikely I hit infinite again, I am so far.
- Eternal is a bit neglected, but I try to sneak it in every so often.
- Street Fighter VI came out last week! I preordered the Standard edition from Steam, but so far have only gotten tutorials and placement matches done (I landed in Silver, which I guess isn't too bad?). Then over the weekend, a friend randomly gifted me a PS4 copy as well! (I don't even use my PS4 much anymore!)
- Also played some boardgames with friends!
Reading: Started reading another Discworld! A short one this time, so hopefully can be done soon. Reading a lot of comics still; current reading of Avengers v1 is up to #128 (not a great pace). Feed reader backlog is at a manageable 44 items.
Watching: Only one movie watched this week, it was The Mummy (1999). My brother and I were planning to watch the Spider-verse sequel this past weekend, but he had to resched so hopefully we get to it this week, the reviews are so good! And there's also so many shows I want to watch/finish!
This past week (Sunday thru Saturday), Fitbit says I walked a total of 69,879 steps and burned 25,204 calories. This is the first time I have fallen short of 70k steps in 2 months! And it was mostly because of an unexpected rain shower. It's probably fine, since I was up 2k steps last week.
Some Links of Interest
Huh, nothing this week actually. Check out the linkblog for past links!
This coming week
Surprisingly I have nothing special on the calendar this coming week. Hopefully that lets me get back into my daily routines and get some stuff back on track!
Next weekend is a long weekend, with PH independence day on Monday the 12th.
