I'm a productivity junkie. I'm always looking for a new way to organize my projects, housework, and general to-dos. Paper planners, bullet journals, apps, sticky notes - I've tried it all. Which has given me a really good idea of what I want/need in a to-do list. In a perfect world, my to-do list would: Sort tasks by two main categories - Home and WorkAllow me to break Home and Work into smaller sub-projectsCan be accessed anywhere, from any deviceLet each task have sub-tasksLet each task have notes and reminders/deadlinesShow my calendar ...

Cool and useful websites. Tech updates and reviews. My favorite apps. Anything technology-related goes here.
About a month ago, I decided to trade in my iPhone 7 Plus for a shiny new iPhone XS. There wasn't anything inherently wrong with my 7 Plus, I just got a case of "shiny object syndrome" and the only real way to solve it was to upgrade my phone. I loved a lot about my 7 Plus. The bigger screen was great, and I loved the dual cameras - portrait mode took my Instagram to another level. But, there were also a few downsides. The biggest one was size; I couldn't comfortably hold it in one hand and relied on my PopSocket to keep it secure in my ... Keep Reading
A little over a year ago, I blogged about the TarDisk - a small flash-storage device that promised to add to the storage on your Mac device. Since my MacBook Air only has 128 GB of storage, I picked up a 128 GB TarDisk and got it installed. It doubled my storage space, and seemed like a great investment (even if the re-Pearing process was an absolute nightmare). Unfortunately, not all that glitters is gold. A year later, and I'm sad to say that I'm no longer using the TarDisk with my MacBook Air. Which means I'm back down to 128 GB of SSD ... Keep Reading
Fall used to be my favorite season. Until I bought a house and realized that fall leads to winter, and winter sucks. So now my favorite season is spring. But I'm still a sucker for everything that fall brings with it - cooler weather, beautiful leaves, pumpkin spice everything (I am basic af.) Not everything on this list is fall-themed. More than anything, I wanted to share a peek into my life - I haven't blogged since May, and I spent my summer struggling with myself and my mental health, so now that everything is good, I want to share. So, ... Keep Reading
I am a nerd. I love Doctor Who. I love my MacBook. Nobody should really be surprised that I bought a Mac accessory called a TarDisk. A Little Background... When I ordered my Mac two+ years ago, I was stretching my limits a little bit; I wasn't making a ton of dough and the idea of sinking $1300 into a laptop was both exciting and terrifying. I didn't have enough to go all-out and trick out every aspect of the computer, so I decided to opt for a smaller SSD (less storage space) in exchange for more RAM and a better processor (so it could ...

Let's be honest: saving money is hard. I think everyone my age struggles with saving money. It's just one of those stereotypical "millennial" things - we're all always broke. Luckily for us, technology is helping change that. Which is why I'm sharing one of my favorite financial apps, Acorns. What Is Acorns? Acorns is an app (for both iPhone and Android!) that helps you squirrel away money via "micro investing". It's super simple, takes absolutely no effort on your part, and actually works really well. Wait... what is Micro ... Keep Reading
