Looks like the word for today’s #mbnov is stay. My mind immediately started playing Stay by Rihanna.

Not really sure how to feel about it

Something in the way you move

Makes me feel like I can’t live without you

It takes me all the way

I want you to stay

Notion (as a journal app?).

I downloaded Notion, I wanted to try to use it as my journal app. I like DayOne quite a lot but at the same time, I feel like it’s too much and I want something more simple, like plain text. Notion seemed like a good alternative. However, it’s not by any means simple, there is a lot going on in this app. I opened it, tried to make sense of everything I am seeing, a minute later I closed the app.

I think Apple has silently pushed and update to my first generation AirPods to screw them up. It is so convenient that I am starting to have issues with them, a few days after the AirPods Pro have been announced. 😅

Like a great philosopher once said,

Can’t touch this…

I have just started playing DRAGON QUEST XI, and I’m into it. DEATH STRANDING, came out this week and POKEMON SWORD & SHIELD comes out this week? I can’t even !!! 😅

Some posts worth remembering from a year ago today. Thanks to the on this day feature. 🤗

  1. Marley decorating her uncles’s Christmas 🎄
  2. A nice hike in the morning
  3. And the progress on stickers removal from my MBP.

Wait, does this means that it’s my


Blade of the Immortal

Edo, an era of warriors. There lived an immortal man, the Slayer of Hundreds, ‘Manji.’ He meets Rin, who has sworn vengeance for her parents. Rin’s grudge is against a group of swordmasters – Ittou-ryu. She asks Manji to be her bodyguard on her journey. He refuses, but then sees his late sister in Rin. So began the violent struggle that would bring even the immortal Manji to his knees.

I’ve always been aware of the Manga and later the live movie. I was really excited when I found out amazon was going to have the anime adaptation of it.

I cannot remember the last time I tried —and successfully— made popcorn this way.

Today I decided to change my workout space, instead of going to the gym, I decided to workout on my backyard. It’s been really cold this last week, however, this weekend has been warm enough. (Side note: it’s kind of hard to do kettlebell stuff on grass)

I got a thing today.

A motley crew of apocalypse survivors living at an abandoned truck stop never suspects that the pregnant woman among them is carrying the Messiah.

My daughter’s custom skills are sick! Look at this Apple Watch sport band , Christmas edition 😅

Some fun outside today, it was not too cold for a change.

  • M: Papa she keeps giving me rocks!

  • M: Luna stop!

  • Luna doesn’t stop

  • M: This woman is killing me.


I am KING GABZ 😅 (I feel like someone was judging me)

Accounts like this one are one of the reasons why I don’t want to just leave Instagram entirely.

This is my second — not sure frustration is the right word — quibble about the Beats Pro. First one being that every once in a while one of them would stop working and I need to “forget the device” and re-pair. Second one, no way of knowing for sure if they’re properly in place.


Blue Seed

Momiji is an average girl until the day she finds she is the descendant of the great Kushinada family. Only she, with her Kushinada blood, can stop the Aragami, demonic plant-like monsters threatening to destroy Japan. Along to help her is the TAC, and a possible love interest in a young man named Kusanagi.

I classic ! Good to know it’s available on Amazon Prime!

Happy Oly-versary? 📷 🎉

Two Years Ago

Olympus OMD-EM10 Mark III Today I received my new camera, the Olympus OM-D EM-10 Mark III. Been wanting to upgrade my camera for a while and after watching a couple of reviews it seemed like an obvious choice. The controls and options are easier to access, making it more user friendly. Not just that but the addition of new technology. So it was a justifiable upgrade coming from the first generation or model. So I went out downtown Boise to snap some pictures, using my Leica 25mm lens. It has been a while since I went out so excited about taking pictures so I had a lot of fun.

What Are Notes?

One thing that most of us kind of struggle with, it’s our notes-taking or notes-keeping systems. Some prefer apps like Bear, or Drafts, Apple Notes, Evernote, whatever other apps out there.

Most of my notes, if I take any at all, are mostly in Drafts. But it’s usually snippets or little things. Actually most of my “notes” in Drafts are CSS scripts (😅). My main use for Drafts though, is blogging and/or composing. In fact I do very little actual note taking at all. My it’s just a repository for links and workout routines. Are those considered notes? Maybe I have the wrong idea what notes are?

On Anime.

I love anime shows (and movies), I’ve been a fan of them since I was a kid! I do remember my first few starting with RUROUNI KENSHIN (or SAMURAI X), I loved this tv show, especially the Leyend of Kyoto story ark. So much so that I have the Boxset. Also another all-time favourite TEKKAMAN BLADE or TECHNOMAN, I remember watching this one until the very end,I have the entire collection for this one. There are other shows for sure but these two are the ones always on top of my head.

Anyhoo, these tv shows can be jam-packed with action, weird characters and extreme violence. Even though I am all too familiar with these facts about Japanese animation, every once in a while I’ll watch something so disturbing that will make me deeply uncomfortable.

There’s a tv show on Netflix right now, a Netflix Original called KENGAN ASHURA.

Ohma Tokita enters a hidden world where corporate disputes are settled in brutal gladiator bouts. Forget the money, he just wants to fight – and win.

This tv show is right up my alley, it’s ridiculous over-the-top fighting — very brutal! They have recently added its second season which made super excited to jump back into it.

Last night thought, there was a particular episode that I had a hard time watching. I feel very uncomfortable around certain subjects or situations, not just in anime but in general. I don’t do well with any type of torture or things of that nature. Anything that renders a human being helpless and unable to do anything about it, I just can’t. Last night was such an episode and oh man did I had a hard time watching!

Still watching it though, the next episode was much less disturbing 😉.
