Tons of new things to learn at work.
Didn't have much free time to work on side projects after starting the new job.
Increased the reading goal in Goodreads from 80 to 90. I think if I keep the same pace, I should be able to reach this target, which at the start of the year looked quite unlikely. My original reading target was quite modest of about 30 books.
Read two books from Bell Hooks which I found thought provoking.
Reading The Bhagavad Gita, the translation by Ekanath Easwaran is without a doubt the most thought provoking philosphical book I read this month, and possibly this year! No wonder the Gita is popular among even intellectuals in the Western tradition because a lot of what Gita talks about readily transcends those boundaries once you get past the Vedic/Hindu jargon. Easwaran's translation does a very good job on that front, in my opinion. I liked this book so much that I bought a hard copy of the book to keep as a reference!
Started doing medium long runs over the weekends again. For me these are the runs which takes more than one hour, but less than two hours.
Went on a hike to Leith Hill, Surrey. The weather was surprisingly great for an Autumn day on the day!
