iTunes

I’m installing itunes again. Which I swore years ago I would never do again.
Please have mercy on my soul. And on my poor computer who does not deserve this mistreatment.
I just want my files safe.

slated in consumed at 2:58 am

Apple/iOS has been trying very hard to convince me to dislike and mistrust them, and the team behind the Concepts app have been trying hard, and increasingly succeeding, to convince me I can like and trust them (lost all my files/drawings/notes; still hoping, possible they’re there somewhere just disconnected). Conclusion at this point: I’m not tossing my ipad yet, though my next tablet will likely have to be an Android (with a pen; I love the Apple pencil (I’m still appalled by the limited design thinking though — am really fortunate my ipad case has a magnet I can stick the eraser cap onto while the pencil’s charging)).

With Android, I can set privacy, and set up backups, and access files of individual apps; very basic necessities for a personal/mobile/essential device.

P.S. I tried getting by without using Concepts for a few days, and all the substitute apps just frustrated me. (I use the others at various times, however Concepts is best for me for uniweldly and expansive notes/doodling / thinking-by-pen/through-hand. I’m glad the Concepts team has proven so dedicated and helpful, so I trust them and still hope to retrieve my files, so I can manually back them up (somehow) in the future and carry on using my lovely iPad with frustrating Appleness of it and good Concepts app with pen[cil].

Intelligence is not consciousness. Intelligence is the ability to solve problems. Consciousness is the ability to feel things.

It’s midas moment and the geese are in it and the beginning-to-blossom trees are bright white, the evergreens are saturated pine, and the sky is a gorgeous cobalt.

*6:55 pm caught another midas moment near GW parkway; all the bare branches velvet mauve and burnished gold, so bright by the cobalt sky.

Daffodils

slated in moments at 6:16 pm

Discovered the reason the daffodils in the front yard are all looking so subdued is because a little girl in a bright pink jacket has been swooping in (she was in and out before I had time to think “hey—”) and collecting all the perky-looking blossoms. It’s probably okay; my best guess is that she’s taking them home to her mother, and that’s a pretty fair outcome for spring flowers, no matter how and who carefully planted them.

Look alive, daffodils

Another gorgeous spring-is-early day; look alive, daffodils! It’s an amazing world. And I’m wearing a dress.

This site was very died for a good ~five years. … I’m very glad to have my online home back.

Reddit does not understand the internet. Closing older articles to any new comments, just as a matter of elapsed time, is so much nonsense I don’t know how to even.

Who needs sleep? I really do

slated in moments at 6:23 am

My sleep schedule (lackthereof) is reaching new levels of insanity. It’s 6:20am and I’m not in my pajamas yet. I think I got up (from bed) yesterday around 10:30am. So I’m four hours away from 24 hours awake. Been doing this too often the past week+. Taking good care of myself, I am not.

*It’s 8:10am now. I have a 12:30pm call.. Can maybe sleep ~3 hours before that.. Nap after, and then catch up on all the things after that? Really though, I must decide to sleep like a normal human being.
