The only downside of giving the iPad way is that most of the stickers I had on the smart keyboard will get removed, for obvious reasons. Oh well!

Princess shoes for the win.

Well today Marley and I went on a date — to the grocery store. I know, not the most exciting place. One funny thing though (funny to me that is). As I was picking up a packet of ground turkey, all of the sudden, I hear. Uh, I love your shoes!”. To wich I was so ready to turn around and say Well, thank you!” Well as I should have known from the beginning, it wasn’t directed at me but to Marley. I guess princess shoes will wind every time! 😅🤙🏼

I gave the iPad Pro away.

Starting 2020 the right way? Well, this is not a The-iPad-doesn’t-work-for-me type post. Please allow me explain before you all judge me (😅).

I handed the 11″ iPad Pro to my wife. Like I posted before, 98% of the times I interact with iOS it’s on my phone, the iPhone XS and very little on the iPad. Even though I carry the iPad with me at all times, still doesn’t get used as much. Most of the time when I have used it (or still use it) it’s for reading, usually comic books.

That being said, my wife has been wanting to get her own iPad for a while. So I have decided to save her the money. This morning I restored the iPad Pro and made her set it up for her with the condition I could install Comixology. So the iPad isn’t leaving the household, it just has a different iCloud account now and will actually get some use.

Now I am using the MacBook Pro more often and to be honest I kinda missed it. And now that Drafts for Mac got actions support, I feel like my blogging workflow is complete again on the Mac.

First on the month (year) homescreen.

There are two things that I want to commit with here. I want to do more books, as you can tell there most likely be audiobooks. So, less podcasts, more books! Second, my task manager (🛎). I was really considering go with Todoist but another thing I want to do this year is reduce the amount of subscriptions I have. Which is why I am going to go with Things 3. But I’m committing this time, I won’t have OmniFocus or Todoist installed, you know, just in case”. Plus my Todoist subscription expired today anyways 😉.

And another change, it’s a minor one though, my calendar app. I’ll be honest I much prefer the stock one but I feel like it’s a pain in the buttness to navigate it and create events. To change from list view to the calendar view and so forth. Which is why for as long as I can remember I’ve been using Fantastical but it’s gotten old now. Hence why Calendar 366 it’s there. It’s like a younger version of Fantastical. Don’t quite like the name but meh!

And I think that’s it. Everything else will remain the same and most likely change by the end of the month 😅. We shall see.

The change bug.

I don’t know what it is yet, but I feel like I want to make some very drastic changes for 2020. The problem is that I don’t know what it is or they are. Is it my blog hosting platform? Do I want to close Instagram? Twitter maybe? Habits? I know I have the change everything bug” but can’t think of what exactly. El-oh-el, it will come up eventually.

Engage like a human.

With the new year coming, I am making a few changes in the way I interact with my technology and social networks (the 2 I’ve got left) but mainly with twitter. I will stick to a third party client and disregard the existence of the official app, so, if you follow me and happen to like/agree/identify with something I have tweeted/posted, please, reach out and engage, like a human, I won’t see your likes or retweets, they’ve got no value to me, your actual engagement does.

This is nothing new but it’s crazy how many people I still see flat out texting while driving. Not like texting on a stop light but in motion. Thank god we are educated” people.

The (MacBook)iPad Pro.

This week started using my MacBook Pro again and it’s been somewhat satisfying. When I got the 11″ iPad Pro I was extremely positive that it’d replace MBP and it some ways — and for a while — it did. I think I can count with one hand how many times I used the MBP since I got the iPad, at least at the beginning. But most recently I have realized that all my iOS interactions are 90% of the time using my iPhone XS. And it’s not that the iPad lacks functionality or anything like that, it’s just an accessibility matter? Like my phone it’s with me at all times so it’s easier to just take it out of my pocket and do the things.

But when I’m home and want to do something that is not on my phone, I have been going to the MBP and not even considering using the iPad. Again, maybe it has something to do with the fact that the Mac 💻 it’s on the kitchen table, right there in front of me whilst the iPad it’s in my backpack 🎒. It is definitely a weird thing and it’s not a thing about one it’s better than the other, it’s just is (el-oh-el).

The thing is, as of right now, I am a little torn between to stick to one or the other. Specially since Drafts for Mac got actions support (chef’s kiss 😘👌🏼). The iPad it’s still a piece of tech that I still enjoy using, when I use it, so I don’t want to let it go’ yet. The thing I appreciate the most about the iPad over the MacBook 💻, it’s portability. It’s easier to carry my massive HP work computer and the iPad Pro in my backpack than two laptop computers, especially when traveling for work.

Again, it is not that I can do better work on one device over the other, I can do the same kind of work on both devices, actually, in all three, including the iPhone.

Love DayOne’s latest update and I appreciate the extra icons! However, I like very little having way too many options! It makes it it difficult to decide.
