1. Audible

I need things to keep my brain active and off the subject of my life.

2. Pushover

This goes mostly with IFTTT. I can set up alerts such as the Full Moon. When I get an email that is “Important” according to Gmail (be sure to teach Gmail what isn’t important).

3. iOS apps Mail/Messages/Calendar/Reminders/Safari

I nearly live in these basic iOS apps.

Mail I have set up to sync with Gmail.

Calendar syncs with Google Calendar and the calendar on my Laptop.

Same with Reminders though I do have IFTTT set up to sync it with Remember the Milk.

4. Twitter

This is my communication method lots of time. I keep up with more friends here than I do Facebook.

5. Foursquare

If I ever go missing the cops can easily find where the last place I was.

6. IFTTT

I hate repetitive tasks, but I LOVE to keep archives. This does that and automates a few things for me.

7. Starbucks

I had been using this app quite a bit. I was addicted to my Carmel Apple Spice even though it doesn’t agree with my stomach. Apples have given me problems for years.

8. Mobile Banking app

This is how I usally check my bank account. I actually interact with my bank more this way than any other way.

9. Google+

I’m using this more than any other social site for promoting my iBooks.

11. Timehop

I like this app for seeing what was going on in my life on this day for previous years.

12. Waze

I travel a lot and don’t know where I’m going. So I find out what’s nearby by using the search embeded in Waze. Plus they know traffic because of the real time traffic updates from other users in the area.

13. Kindle

I love to read. However, moving with a large library every 3 to 6 months is prohibitive. So I have a Kindle, a Kindle app on my phone and a Kindle app on my iPad. I have my whole library down to about 3 lbs. A lot easier to pack up and move.

Daily Journal: What I’ve been up to

I haven’t posted in quite a while. What I’ve been up to lately:

  • Playing Diablo 3
  • Still raiding in World of Warcraft
  • Putting together outfits in the Covet Fashion app (hey it’s paper dolls to go)
  • Playing with my new Pebble Watch
  • Working
  • I’ve also published a few books on the iBooks store. They are game guides.

What I’d like to do:

Ten Reasons Why Lawrence County’s History is Cooler Than Other Places’ History | The Lawrence County Historical Review

9.  The only F5 tornado in Tennessee history ripped through western Lawrence County.

Although this certainly wasn’t ‘cool’ to those who experienced it, it is still a remarkable part of our county’s history. On April 16, 1998, a large tornado touched down in Wayne County, Tennessee. It gained strength as it traveled northeast, and the damage it caused by the time it reached Deerfield in western Lawrence County was on such a massive scale that the National Weather Service later declared it to be an F5 on the original Fujita scale. This was the only tornado in Tennessee’s history to be considered an F5 using that particular means of measurement (meteorologists swapped to the enhanced Fujita scale, or EF scale, since 2007). However, because news coverage of smaller tornados in downtown Nashville overshadowed coverage of the Lawrence County event, meteorologists have dubbed it ‘The Forgotten F5.’[2]

Alt Appreciation #PriestWeek

I’ve been slacking on doing my last alt class. My baby priest is one I enjoyed in Cataclysm. I just haven’t found enough time to play her to my liking. She’s on the 3000 valor points portion of the quest for her legendary cloak.

Daily Journal: Want to do vs Actually do

I want to do many things. I want to gear all my World of Warcraft characters. I want to finish the hunter book. I want to farm all the mounts I don’t have. I want to level the last 2 classes I don’t have at 90. I want to level my horde characters. I want to do Photo 365..

 

What I actually do: Play for an hour then log off and read some book not even in my To Read backlog. Or just go to bed.
