Honestly can’t believe I’ve made it a full year, but I’m so so happy that I have.


3 years sober today. They haven’t all been easy, but I’m really proud of what I’ve accomplished so far.

lol some hacker made the link for the apple event redirect to a random twitch stream

Went to donate blood and they were playing The Imperial March from Star Wars over the speakers and I can’t imagine that’s the vibe they had originally intended to put out there

It’s incredibly obnoxious that I can’t use @instapaper just because I happen to be standing in the EU right now.

But also: is this even how GDPR works? I’m an EU citizen no matter where I’m physically located, so I should be covered by GDPR in, like, Alabama, right?

10 minutes between checking into this hotel and locking our passports in the safe with an unknown code which I’m pretty sure is a NEW WORLD RECORD USA USA USA

I ended up ripping this code out of the app, but this was an interesting bug to run into: https://bugs.swift.org/browse/SR-7934

The attached playground is especially fun to play with! Switch toolchains to see the behavior change.

I need to figure out how to use ScreenTime to limit the amount of time I spend obsessing over the stats that can be found in ScreenTime.

tbh i’m super impressed with the attention to detail here


Bowling update: I won (20.9mph)

I’m at a bowling alley and it displays the speed of your last ball and that immediately became the metric I care about improving the most.

TIL: footnotes are supported in Day One! I had no idea. I added one without thinking about it and was pleasantly surprised when it rendered appropriately.

I just saw the 🔥 take that a turtle is a sandwich and… I might agree with them?

Anyway if you need me I’ll be over here thinking about this forever.

idk what you’re all talking about he’s clearly saying “paul is dead”

Finally, a ticket we can all believe in


I don’t understand why every app that displays calendar events hasn’t stolen combined events from @flexibits Fantastical. Would love to see this make its way to the iOS app, and I’m dying for it to be implemented in @culturedcode’s Things.

Hadn’t been planning on it, but seeing as it’s less than a mile from my house, I signed up for Peers Conf. Hope to see some of y’all there!

One of these is not like the others


pls sign up for my webinar on being very good at personal productivity

Good: I made it to SF!

Bad: It’s 8am here and I’ve already been awake for 7 hours.

Hahaha cool at some point my phone decided to change itself to the Eastern time zone so I’m at the airport just bonkers early cool cool cool

First day!


Who’s got two thumbs and dual citizenships?


Action Bronson hanging out on the side of the stage eating chicken wings during Meyhem Lauren’s set is everything I could have hoped for

After 5 fantastic years, today is my last day working for @thoughtbot. Excited to start my next chapter, sad to say goodbye to my friends.
