The Edge of Perfection

Image
The first thing to say about the Galaxy s7 Edge is that it's amazing, it's worth the upgrade or switch from any phone, and it is potentially the best phone ever made - as well it should be. It's the product of one of the most lucrative and competitive markets in the world. If you do it right there is a potential for 7 billion sales or more. It's also the headlining product from one of the largest and most diverse companies in the world. While samsung's philosophy seemed to have been throw everything you have out there and see what sticks, giving the impression of being messy and disorganized - that is only a good thing for us because once they decide to reign themselves back in and focus - they have a lot more successes and failures to work with. Being able to do many things, and being able to do many things well is always better than doing one thing really well - especially when eventually it is also possible to change your focus and then improve upon each aspect…

"Around here... we don't look backwards for very long. We keep moving forward, opening up new doors and doing new things." - Walt Disney



"I always try to have something to look forward to. Something to strive for, to make my life richer. It doesn't have to be big. It could be anything from looking forward to the next comic book to come out. To the next family vacation, or hanging out with my friends. To going to the next high school football game. However all of these things keep me focused and let me know that there is a bright future ahead. And may get me through some difficult times that may happen. Now this mentality includes staying in a forward thinking state of mind. I try hard not to waste energy feeling badly for myself because when i do i get stuck in a paradox where there's no room for any happiness or any other emotion. Now it's not that i ignore when i'm feeling badly, i kinda accept it, i let it in . So i can acknowledge it and i do wh…

Crop Chickens

Seems like some mysterious chicken magic, but you have to occam's razor it and realize that they probably just pored out their feed in that shape. They would do the same thing no matter what shape you pored it out in - like leaving bread crumbs.

Sam Hunt - Come Over (Live Acoustic Performance)

Image
I turn the TV off, to turn it on again Staring at the blades of the fan as it spins around Counting every crack, the clock is wide awake Talking to myself, anything to make a sound
I told you I wouldn't call, I told you I wouldn't care But baby climbing the walls gets me nowhere I don't think that I can take this bed getting any colder Come over, come over, come over, come over, come over
You can say we're done the way you always do It's easier to lie to me than to yourself Forget about your friends, you know they're gonna say We're bad for each other, but we ain't good for anyone else
I told you I wouldn't call, I told you I wouldn't care But baby climbing the walls gets me nowhere I don't think that I can take this bed getting any colder Come over, come over, come over, come over, come over
We don't have to miss each other, come over We don't have to fix each other, come over We don't have to say forever, come over You don'…

You know what is even more annoying than not having anything to write about? Dealing with having written too much.

I've kinda gotten into having disorganized rooms/ hard drives but that theme also extends into where they meet - where the physical becomes digital.

Writting (sic)/ sketching in bound notebooks is one of the most convenient and seemingly organized way to go about keeping physical notes. That is until you want to scan them into your computer. If it's to back them up or to store or use elsewhere you will eventually want to digitize them and that's when you'll realize the limitations of pre-bound notebooks.

You have a couple options. One is to scan them page by page in a flat bed scanner - which is probably the best options since it keeps them bound and can be scanned at a very high quality. BUT it takes a long time. If you have one notebook it can be about 100 pages (front and back mind you) and that's not too bad. Break it up into a few chunks of scann…
