Okay, I really would love to get back into comics. I miss sitting down with the iPad and enjoy a good comic book story. Or even a physical book. But I rather stay digital. Physical books and comic books boxes can take too much space. What I have been debating is whether I want to do Marvel Unlimited or Comixology Unlimited.

Awesome stuff.

You know your not alright in the head when you put the moka pot in the microwave instead of on the stove. ๐ŸคชGood morning

Teeth's.

A conversation I had this morning made think about when I first moved to the States and my English was much worse than it is right now. For example, I had a hard time assimilating or getting into my head the word teeth. In Spanish as well as many other words in English, anything that is plural it’d have an “s” at the end. Right? Teeth in Spanish is Dientes, plural of Diente. So many times I’d say teeths which it’d sound as tits! Which it could have gotten me into trouble. Can you imagine? Me going “hello lady, you have the most beautiful tits (teeth) I’ve ever seen!” ๐Ÿ˜•

Delete All The Temptations.

Cleaned up my dock a little bit today. Deleted a bunch of apps that I knew I wasn’t really going to use. Same on the phone. I had a moment of honesty with myself, I usually keep apps around โ€œjust in caseโ€, to keep-up with the updates. But that’s what makes me jump around different apps all the time, so, deleted all the โ€œtemptationsโ€ and have committed to specific apps and services. Also cleaned up my TestFlight. I got to be honest, I am not going to test OmniFocus, Things 3, TickTick and Todoist, all at the same time, they’re all gone now. And I am sticking to the official Todoist’s release/version.

I have spoken! (or written)

Alright! Love sales ๐Ÿ˜…

Oh man! Both The Witcher and Yoshiโ€™s Crafted World are on sale ๐Ÿง™๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ ๐Ÿฆ– ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

I โค Blogs And Maybe You Should Too.

I have been reading ‘Blogs’ for as long as I have been “surfing” the web (it’s that a term I can still use?), even if at the time I wasn’t aware of what I was reading was a blog. To me was probably just another website. Then I started to get more serious about it and read more of some people’s work regularly until the day I got the “blogging bug”, sort to speak. And I am not going to lie, it took me at least a year or two before I dared to have my own blog. I guess I was just afraid that it wasn’t going to be as good or as professional as the ones I was reading. And still, I think most of them have much better writing skills than me. Fast forward a year or so, I have my own. It is not a professional blog by any means. It’s a personal blog or an unprofessional blog as I call it, It’s my online journal in some way. I have no specific topics I write about whatever I want. I just think out-loud, type it and I publish it.

Before having my personal blog, at one point I thought of Facebook, Twitter not so much, but Facebook for sure as maybe some kind of personal blog-ish. Except for the fact that, well, we all know what Facebook it’s all about. The algorithms and fake news, the trolls, the hate, privacy, you don’t truly own your content and it’s depressing. Or at least for me, it was, hence why I closed it.

Personal/Indie blogs are an amazing thing and since I’ve joined Micro.blog, it has become an even more amazing experience. Itโ€™s awesome to see so many people blogging about their interests and opinions, at a more personal level. And I don’t care how you all do it if it’s Micro.blog, Wordpress, Ghost, Hugo, plain paper (would that still be considered blogging, plain paper?). And whether it’s just personal, tech-centric or whatever is that you all blog about it doesn’t matter to me, it is all about the content.

For all of these reasons and then some, maybe you should โค blogs too.

Oh man! This playlist โ€Žโ€™90s Hits Essentials

Leftover Pizza for lunch today. Surely not the healthiest choice but that’s okay. That just means we gotta workout a little bit harder tonight.

Sorry, Not Sorry Watch Industry.

I have an addiction for five things; Watches, shoes, bracelets, beanies, sunglasses, and backpacks (wait, that’s six). Anyway, as far as I can remember since I was a kid I always had a fascination with watches. I remember having the classic Casio digital Watches, then I remember the ones with the calculator (Math teachers would always be asked me to take it off during tests, don’t know why). G-Shocks, mechanical ones, the Fossil ones with the big thick leather bands. You name it!

Until, the Apple Watch. Once I got my first Apple Watch, I think that would be the Series 0. Am I right? Ever since I haven’t bought another watch whatsoever. All I have been buying all these years it’s either the next iteration of the Watch (currently series 4, 5 might come soon or just wait for the 6) and tons and tons of watchbands. Switching watchbands and Watch-faces makes it like I can have a different watch every other week more or less – at least form me. I love the apple watch, for many many reasons, it’s an integral part of my technology and way of life and I can’t imagine it to be any other way. Sorry, not sorry watch industry!

Ham and cheese sandwich for lunch today. Ah! And with a hint of butter. ๐Ÿฅช (chefโ€™s kiss ๐Ÿ˜˜๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ)

I had this protein bar as a snack, about an hour and a half ago, a big mistake. Now I’ve got this thirst that just won’t go away.

On not Giving a Fuck.

When I was much younger I feel like I was a lot more impulsive and much more foolish. I would probably react harshly and foolishly to almost anything that would bother me or set me off. While driving would be the perfect example and where my story for today sort of revolves around. If I had someone cut me off or trying to, I would get riled up and drive like a maniac and be a butthole just so that somebody wouldn’t be able to do what they are trying to do. If I saw someone doing something reckless on the road I would probably somehow react in the same manner to that as well and so on.

With the years, I think, I have learned to not giving a fuck, anymore-ish. And yet I do? I do control myself much better now. My question now is, now that I can control the way I react to things. How do I stop things from still either emotionally or mentally affect me? How do I stop giving a fuck, truly?

This morning on my way to work, I saw these two cars, trying to cut on the front of everybody at any chance they’ve got. We are driving on a one-lane road until right before the stoplight (there are several of them) and once you pass the stoplight it turns into a one-lane road again. If it was younger me, I would have taken off as fast as I could to prevent these two cars to cut on the front of me and the others because they were too impatient to just “stay-in-line” like everybody else. Now though, I just don’t care, I am not in a hurry, I am sipping on my delicious Puerto Rican coffee and my workplace won’t go anywhere. And even so that on the outside I seem cool and not giving a fuck about the situation and not reacting harshly, it still bothered me a little bit. I still had these thoughts and saying in my head “you two are gonna end up at the same stop no matter what, you idiots” which they did actually. I don’t like having these thoughts, they are a waste and all they can do is to ruin my mental state.

I am saying I don’t give a fuck about certain things anymore but I still might get bothered by them. So How do I stop that? Is it even possible? Or having the emotions and thoughts it’s okay as long as I keep them in check and don’t react foolishly?

Who knows?

Only seven days into 2020 and I’m already… flabbergasted?

The problem with being a weather apps junkie? It creates trust issues.

Something I Liked This Week Volume 18.

Star Ocean First Departure R on the Nintendo Switch.

Star Ocean First Departure R Itโ€™s a remake of Star Ocean: First Departure from the PSP, which itself was a remake of the first Star Ocean for Super Nintendo. So it’s a remake of a remake? (Remakeception!!)

Anyway, I have been playing the heck out of this game for the past week or so (probably the past two weeks). And by heck I mean five hours of playing time, according to my save file. Five hours doesn’t sounds like a lot but it does feels like its been.

My only thing with this game is that, it’s a classic RPG, there’s no guidance except for some information of course through dialog with almost every NPC in the game. And if you step away from the game for a long while, good luck finding your way back into the game, since there isn’t a log system or anything that tells you what you did and what to do next. Or at least I haven’t found anything of the sorts. It reminds me of the days of Final Fantasy VII.

I am very impatient so I find myself YouTube-ing walkthroughs whenever I get stuck and find myself just wondering around like a yahoo and fighting random monsters for no reason other than xp and monies.

I have probably lost my touch with this type of game. Maybe is the reason I have never finished Breath of the Wild for example. Exploring and adventuring it’s something I lack patience for nowadays, I need the game to hold me by the hand and show me where to go and what to do next. I’ve become lazy.

Still I am enjoying the game, until I get to a point where I can’t either figure out what to do or how to beat a boss. Which at that point I will most likely rage-quit the game and damn it all out!

The End.
