Books I'm reading #
- Designing Your New Work-Life: How to Thrive and Change and Find Happiness and a New Freedom at Work by Bill Burnett, Dave Evans.
Docker Mastery by Bret Fisher
Books I've read #
- The Unicorn Project by Gene Kim. I didn't enjoy this one, but YMMV as I've heard some good reviews on the book club. Still, I won't recommend it.
- The Source by Tara Swart. I think that I misunderstood this book. It's more of a scientific explanation for some of the new age/secret ideas and a memoir of the author. Still, I'm aware of science contradicting some of those ideas, and they weren't mentioned. I wouldn't recommend it.

Personal Thoughts #
May started with some time off, thanks to some public holidays in Poland, but after that, I've been trying to get back some work-life balance and focus more on programming.
I didn't read as much because I've discovered [Webtoons](https://www.webtoons.com/] and spent more time reading there than I want to admit.
In terms of good things, I got back to meditation and exercise routines that I had neglected in April. I'm far from doing them regularly yet, but I hope I can get better during the summer.
