I do not consider myself a “great” parent (or a writer, for that matter). I’m just an amateur who shows up. A student, learning. I stick with it. It’s all you can do.

A while ago, I came across this article by the guys at The Sweet Setup and thought I would make a list of my own. A list of my favourite things from 2018. With no particular order or too many details, because I’m lazy, here it is:
Probably my favorite gadget by far of this year! I love the improvements they made to both the hardware and the software. I have own every generation of Apple Watch and this is definitely my favorite.
Is no secret that I’m huge fan of the AC franchise. So is no surprise that I picked up this game as soon as it came out.
Fantastic game!! I had miss a good spidey game and this one did not disappoint.
Definitely my favourite game released on 2018 for the Nintendo Switch! Octopath, it reminded me a lot of old RPG games I used to play like Final Fantasy, Chrono-Trigger and Children of Mana.
I got the HomePod about two days after release-day. I have loved this thing ever since. The sound quality on this thing is pretty amazing!
I you’re a fan of Pokémon, this is a game you must have. I have been playing this game every single night since it was released.
Micro.blog and its community
This year I had decided to give Micro.blog another try, see if it could replace Wordpress as my blog host. I think this time it actually clicked for me, it took a while but it did, and I am very happy about it.
I think this is it! I’m sure I am forgetting something but this are all the ones on top of my head.
It’s a beautiful day in this neighborhood A beautiful day for a neighbor Would you be mine? Could you be mine?

Even before Baby Luna was born, our two-year-old Marley, always referred to her as “Baby Dolphin”. Well, it was pretty accurate. The noises Luna sometimes makes, are dolphin like sounds.
As artist Laurel Nakadate has observed, being a parent is already very much like being an artist. It means always lugging things around, living in chaos, doing things that are mysterious or impossible or scary. As with art, children can drive you crazy all day, make you wish all this could go away. Then in a single second, at any point, you are redeemed with a moment of intense, transformative love.

Is it a thing to be “depressed” about taking antidepressant medications? Is that a thing? I think I’m tired. I am tired of having to remember to take them every morning (even when having some sort of reoccurring reminders). I am tired of freaking out every time I forget to take them. I am tired of the way I feel afterwards if I do forget. I am tired of this dependency in order to have a more stable mental — and emotional — life.

I bought this game last night, The Messenger for the Nintendo Switch. It looks like one of those games that I’d probably rage-quit. But it was on sale so I bought it anyway.
This week there are two apps I want to try. Todoist and iA Writer. I kind of started since Friday a little bit but I want to use them full time this week. With Todoist as my main task manager and iA as my main text editor. They’d be replacing Things 3 and Ulysses. Let us see how it goes.

My photographic scene looks like so. I have an Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark III. My usual daily use lens is the Panasonic Lumix Leica 25mm, F 1.4. My second go-to lens is the Olympus M.Zuiko 17mm f1.8. I also own an Olympus M. Zuiko 45mm f1.8. I wrote a little bit about my photography bug a about a year ago here.
So there’s an idea that I have been toying with in my mind for a while now, some sort of photography challenge. What I was thinking was, take one of my lenses and just shoot with that lens exclusively for a month or so. It’ll be a good opportunity to explore more with lenses by putting myself in situations were I normally wouldn’t that specific lens. Just to see what happens and how I adapt.
So I think this is how I’m going to do it:
I’m sure the order may change but whichever lens I decide to start with, I‘ll make sure I keep using that one throughout the month.
Even if you can’t make out the lyrics, you should play this song! Honestly!
