- App I downloaded — RescueTime.
This app runs in the background while tracking how you spend your time on your various devices and provides tools to help your productivity. I’ve only been using it for a few days now, but seeing how unproductive I can be on my phone is alarming. That’s why I’m starting to do all of my writing on my computer, which I’m more productive on.
Check out the app on Mac, PC, Android, and Linux (no app for iOS yet).
- TV Show I keep coming back to — Portlandia.
I first watched this sketch comedy series back during Thanksgiving with my brother and sister. It had us cracking up and eventually sending one another funny clips from the show while we were away from one another.
We all live far away from each other now, and I don’t get to see them much, if at all, during the season. I miss them, and watching the show reminds me of us all together laughing with my mom smiling from the kitchen while making Thanksgiving dinner.
The first 4 seasons are available for streaming on Netflix.
- YouTube video that had me in awe —
This dude is beatboxing AND playing the recorder at the same time!
- Purchase I’m excited about — Audio-Technica ATH-M50x Professional Studio Monitor Headphones.
I’ve been meaning to get a pair of headphones since spring training, but couldn’t find quality ones in my price range. I found a video from my favorite tech reviewing YouTuber, MKBHD, where he talks about the best headphones under $200.
At $160, the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x are a steal.
- What’s going on —
We just arrived in Rome, GA yesterday where we have a 4 game set — we won the first one last night. They get a good crowd at their games, being a Braves affiliate. After that, we head to play the Lexington Legends in Kentucky for 3 games. I’m excited for that trip because it’s one of the few places I haven’t been to in the South Atlantic League.
