Instant blogging

The laziest form of blogging is to:

(1) sit at your desk
(2) take pictures of things you have within reach
(3) upload with minimal explanation about context.



 Picture 1:

This is half of the books I ordered from Amazon.
I'm still figuring out how to read all these in as little time as possible.
Yes I need to read them all.






 
Picture 2: The Kindle estimates how much time I'll take to finish a book based on (I'm assuming) how long I take to finish a Kindle page. Twelve hours.

Picture 3:...because I have 4661 more Kindle pages to go for this book. That equals around 274 real-book pages. 12 hours sounds reasonable, from a tonight-is-the-start-of-the-weekend-so-I-have-no-other-commitments-except-more-books point of view.
  
 Picture 4: Confession: sometimes, when I'm a biiit too lazy to look up a few things (okay, maybe not a few things, but a tangle of facts and issues) about a lecture I attended, I take the shortcut: e-mail the professor with a string of questions, then I get an appointment to see him/her, and I get an extra half-hour of a lecture, with printed supplementary materials :) So actually it's maybe not a shortcut because you're supposed to ask if you're not clear about anything, but the lecturers here are super kind, plus they know so much about their area of specialty, so studying with them is a great privilege and pleasure.

 Picture 5: Hebrew homework.

 Picture 6: Source-sifting for an essay. You don't have to finish reading this post, it's all boring pictures of words on paper.

Picture 7: Maybe it's less boring from this angle?
