Oh neat! Looks like 2 years ago Today I got my HomePod.

I think this is one of the many signs I got today, that I really should use some sleep. First of, I had to drag myself into the gym today. No motivation or energy whatsoever, which made for a somewhat crappy workout. I finished my workout and I get ready to leave.
The gym that I play at, doesn’t have lockers with showers or any of the sorts. I mean it does have bathrooms but nothing fancy. What we have it’s like cubic shelves of some sort where I’d just put there my car keys, the card I use to get into the gym and my power beats pro’s case.
So, I’m leaving and I’ve noticed I had everything (keys, badge and water bottle) but my PBP’s case, I still had them on. I go back and saw the case along with a set of keys and a badge. For like two seconds I thought, “someone else took my PBP’s case!” Right before finishing that thought I’ve realized I had grabbed the wrong keys and the wrong badge. 🤦🏻♂️
I put the keys and badge back, grabbed my stuff and walked away like nothing happened.
Right after that I stopped for gas and when I arrived home I realized I have driven all the way back with the gas lid opened. At least it wasn’t the one you twist but the other one.
Scale, both of the girls (Marley and Luna) got shots today. Besides the “sympathy crying and screaming”, it went swell.

It’s no secret that I change up my tools often. It’s not always simply indecision or chasing the “perfect” thing. It’s often because I like playing with a variety of software. I just wish I could keep my curiosity separate from actual work. I fall in love too easily.
A hundred percent this! I couldn’t have said it any better myself. I often feel guilty about changing my systems, sometimes at what it seems to be at random, when I really shouldn’t. I think!
I don’t know if anybody noticed, on my oppose picture. Clu isn’t the one riding his motorcycle 🏍 😏.
Got into the shower, fast forward 10-15 mins, turning the shower off and second guess myself. Did I actually showered? I don’t remember! What I do remember is thinking (or overthinking) about the ten thousand things they threw at me at today’s meeting. And the other ten thousand I need to complete by the end of the week. And yet, I do not remember grabbing the soap 10-15 mins ago.

Today, thanks to the magic of “On this day”, I was reminded about this post from two years ago. I think this was around the time I started to write (or blog rather) more often and consistently.
After reading it, I came up with this silly idea of “revisit” these thoughts and do some kind of a commentary of sorts and see how they’ve changed, if at all, in the course of two years sir of thing.
I was thinking about why I, all of the sudden, started writing again and having the need to share it. Is it because I’m bored and have too much in my mind? Or simply lost the fear of sharing whatever I write?
Well at the time I was bored but I do always have stuff in my mind too. However, I think mainly was the third one. I had lost my fear. I share anything and everything that comes to mind and that makes me happy.
Also thinking about the things I have been writing about. I am not a tech journalist or critic — nor a professional blogger. I just have stuff in my head and feel like putting them down in words.
I guess this is when I realized that you don’t have to be a pro to blog.
I feel like most of what I write and the way I write about, it’s more like a conversation I would have with a coworker or a friend.
Still on point! When I write I always take the “conversation” kind of idea. That’s the kind of thing I like from personal blogs. It feel more intimate and personal, I like it and that’s what I try to do as well.
Plus it’s my own blog so I can’t talk/write about anything and everything I want, right?
Should have said can not can’t. 😅
I do not remember how I came across it, I’m sure it was in my Micro.blog timeline. But I have very much been enjoying the Panic Podcast, it is somewhat random, at least to me but very fun and interesting. Especially today’s episode, it was a good reminder of the good-old-times of Twitter. It made me think when I first joined back in 2008, which according to this episode, I had joined twitter before Panic did! Although if you look at my account today, it will tell you I’ve joined in May of 2019. This is my second twitter account, I had nuked my first one, which I regret now a little bit but what’s done it’s done.
It was definitely a different time back then, much more enjoyable and fun. It can still be okay these days if you follow the right people and have the right filters and muted words and whatnot but back then none of that was necessary I guess.
Anyway, good pod, good episode and now I want some Carl’s Jr. 🍔 🍟
If I had to rate my state of mind today, it would have been I — for inappropriate (or immature depending whom you ask) 😜. I had so many inappropriate comments (or thoughts) and puns during our meeting today! Was both very professional of me and very sad to hold them all back! 😇
21 years ago, Syphon Filter released on the PlayStation 1 here in the States! Fun fact - a small handful of the team members who worked on this game/series are still at this studio.
I have fond memories of this game. One of my favorite games of all times.
I either have a serious problem or is just what it is. I want to think it’s the later, to be honest 😅.
Here I am, changing my task management (🛎) system — again. Here’s my new approach, I have been thinking about this all week. As much as I love apps like OmniFocus, Things 3 (a little) and the very easy to use, cross-platform Todoist, my needs are simple. I need to be honest with myself. I don’t do projects or am a GTD practitioner. I just have a task with a reminder/due date and that’s it. Also I just need lists of things I want to either do, watch, read or write about at some point. Reminders is good for that stuff and I can just shout things to the lady in the phone and they’ll get in there. The systems mentioned above I think are more for very methodical and organizational people, which I am not, like at all!
To help with using reminders, I’ve got a super secret shortcut (it’s really not that secret) that helps with quick capture in natural language.
When it comes to work stuff, it’s all handled through my email so no need for a complex system. I could still use Todoist if I must but just the free tier, no need for most pro features.
Sometimes simpler it’s better. Now, comeback next week to see how this will all change again. 😅🤙🏼
No rest for the wicked #mbfeb
This movie is great!!! I very much enjoyed it a lot!
Thank you @macgenie for the “extra stickers” 😊🙏🏼
We never had any problems with Marley throwing things down the toilet 🚽. Luna on the other hand 🤦🏻♂️.
