01/12/26 There and back again
Adding liquid soap to the water in the sink, I was surprised by a sudden swarm of tiny bubbles floating through my kitchen. Apart from that, nothing much happened today. Which is fine.
In my almost three years on the Internet I've "met" many people from America, which has made me very aware of the kind of stereotypes about Americans that I grew up with. The experience encouraged me to try and see beyond the stereotype, and to distrust the easy and comfortable answers that prejudice provides.The Internet is neutral, though. It's a tool. If you want to use it to confirm stereotype and spread prejudice, that's what it will do for you. It's up to you how you use it. Your choice.

Since I haven't posted in more than two months I suppose I've been on hiatus. I seem to do this for two months every year for some reason. Not a lot happened in the meantime. Anyway, I'm back.
This is a review that I wrote in the beginning of November.
