The way that I will be posting to Twitter has changed. My tweets will now originate on my own site and are syndicated/cross-posted to Twitter. I am still active on Micro.blog and I hope to make my Twitter experience feel more like the community there.

Six months in and I’ve already listened to 20 books in 2019. This gives me much more satisfaction than the (often repetitive) podcasts that I have scaled back from πŸ“š

I installed the iOS 13 beta on my iPad to test it out, but was planning on waiting to update my iPhone. However, I edited a shortcut on my iPad and now it won’t work on my phone unless I upgrade. I might have to pull the trigger on updating there as well now 😬

Just had my first Impossible Burger at the Gott’s in SFO and I have to say that it was really good! If I didn’t know, I wouldn’t have guessed that it wasn’t a β€œreal” burger.

One day we saw a school of golden rays from the boat and I was disappointed that we weren’t in the water at the time. Then the next day while snorkeling this happened 😳
