I’m surprised not to see thesis writing on that list. I guess it’s just not funny.

There’s nothing unusual about thesis writing. Don’t make me ruin the “achievement” joke by explaining further!

Xbox still hasn’t come (thanks to delivery snafu), so I am updating the post with another unusual achievement.

What book was it?

Dune (the first one). I’d write a short review but I can’t think of much to say besides “it was okay.”

Okay. Cool. I was just curious. :)

Especially because I believe my longest, non-read book is Jane Erye which I started reading in 1996 and failed to read 4 times (including twice for classes, at least?). Then again, I have a feeling I’m not going to ever finish it.
