Saturday: Lazy morning. Watched Formula 1 qualifying. Lunch with mom at Casa Bella at the casino. Afternoon snooze. Light gym session, grocery shopping. Watched a little Netflix, reading. Nighttime spent watching Civil War Netflix documentary.

Sunday: A day of not using my car. Watched the Formula 1 race. Setup my new phone. Walked around Kenilworth, a new route, towards Wynberg rather than Claremont.
