Time has been moving faster than usual, and I’ve been hitting sales goals easier than usual. It could be because I’m working at a new location, with new coworkers and customers, but I hope it’s more. I hope I’ve hit my stride and can maintain this even after this new location isn’t new anymore.</p> <h2 id="rtic-tumbler"><span class="small-caps">RTIC</span> Tumbler</h2> <p>Twice now, with hot coffee inside, I’ve tried opening one to add more coffee to it, and because the lid is so tight, I spilled coffee everywhere. I love how sealed this cup is, but it’s obviously working too good, or I just need to learn how to open it. Either way, hot coffee spills suck.</p> <h2 id="noise">Noise</h2> <p>Noise. That’s all it is. It’s a simplified name for many things, but in order to keep it vague, it’s just noise. The question is, how do I lower that volume. As I get older, that’s the common theme in my life, even more than the one I thought I wanted to be known for. Instead of remembering me for<span class="push-double"></span> <span class="pull-double">“</span>Creating things”, If I can get ever get it right, when it’s all said and done, I want people to look back and say,<span class="push-double"></span> <span class="pull-double">“</span>Through it all, he still figured it out. He cracked the code. He muted that noise.”</p> <h2 id="bills">Bills</h2> <p>Tomorrow’s a big day for me. It’s payday for the commission check I’ve been working towards and focusing on (keep my head down and sale, and work extra hours, and it’ll pay off). When moving to my new location, I knew there would be challenges to overcome by relocating. I knew that the first two months would have costs that aren’t usually budgeted into my month. When making the decision to move, I knew that once the bills stabilized and didn’t have extra charges, deposits, etc. — then I’d actually come out saving money compared to my previous location. Tomorrow just brings balance to the Force again.</p> Game of Thrones (Winter is Here Trailer) http://nashp.com/game-of-thrones-winter-is-here-trailer http://nashp.com//posts/media/[trailers]/game of thrones (winter is here trailer).md Wed, 21 Jun 2017 12:27:10 -0500 <div style="width:0;height:0"> </div><div class="videoContainer" style="padding-bottom:56.25%"><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/1Mlhnt0jMlg?rel=0&wmode=transparent&rel=0&autohide=1&showinfo=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></div> <blockquote> <p>The enemy is real.

Coffee is either with me or waiting for me. At home, to say that I’m a minimalist, I’m also a coffee-hoarder. I didn’t even know there was such a thing, until I started organizing the kitchen in my new apartment.</p> <p>The first step is admitting (I say this while taking another sip). I had my own little intervention, as I laid everything out in the open: I counted an Expresso machine, an old-fashion-dripping-pot, a Frenchpress, an electric kettle, a coffee grinder, an Areopress, a Keurig, 50 K-Cups, creamers (powder ones, liquid ones), fresh beans, filters, half bags of old coffee grounds, caramel flavored Latte foam—and the list keeps going.</p> <p>A year ago, my friend mentioned that, one day, we should open up our own coffee shop, and it’s as if I’ve been preparing the inventory for it ever since.</p> It is better to fail in originality, than to succeed in imitation. — Herman Melville http://nashp.com/it-is-better-to-fail-in-originality-than-to-succeed-in-imitation-thinspmdashthinspherman-melville http://nashp.com//posts/writing and reading/[quotes]/it is better to fail in originality, than to succeed in imitation. – herman melville.md Mon, 19 Jun 2017 11:09:49 -0500 Apple Services (TV and Music subscriptions) http://nashp.com/apple-services-tv-and-music-subscriptions http://nashp.com//posts/tech/[apple]/apple services (tv and music subscriptions).md Sat, 17 Jun 2017 16:13:43 -0500 <p>With Apple hiring the two Sony executives, I see them creating a service like Amazon Prime. $10+ a month for Apple Music and Apple <span class="small-caps">TV</span>. A Spotify and Netflix competitor in one. If you’re an Apple Music subscriber, you’re already getting original content: Carpool Karaoke, several big music documentaries, as well as the back catalog of the Beats 1 shows. Not to mention they’re known for signing deals for albums to be exclusive. When you add all of this together, the writing is on the wall.</p> 6-17-17 http://nashp.com/6-17-17 http://nashp.com//posts/[lifestyle]/[journal]/journal-6-17-17.md Sat, 17 Jun 2017 10:25:32 -0500 <p>Today is day two of this journal method. Don’t overthink it. Just write. This isn’t meant to be the typical blog post. Just me starting my morning. The link address will simply be the date (6-17-17).</p> <p>I’m trying the local breakfast cafe (Huddle House) near my house again. Have to be to work in 30 minutes.<span class="push-double"></span> <span class="pull-double">“</span>Coffee and two pancakes,” as I walk in and before I sit down. I’ll write this journal entry while waiting, and it’ll be public before I clock into work.</p> <p>Today is day 4 of my new work schedule. I’m calling it the fourth quarter (4 work days, 3 off days). I’ll be off until Wednesday after I clock out today. The concept of four quarters has made me focus a lot better at work, and not slack off during any of the quarters. This four-quarter basketball concept is so me. It fits with the way I think. Hopefully I can keep this schedule for a long time. It’s not guaranteed though.</p> <p>Tomorrow is Father’s Day. I’m planning to take a three-hour trip and surprise my dad in the morning. That means I’ll miss church, and I’ll have to hurry back in time for small group at 5:30pm. I’m also undecided if I want to take my little brother to ride with me. I’m sure he’d enjoy the road-trip.</p> <p>I recorded two songs last night. Didn’t lay down until midnight, and I don’t think I slept for more than an hour at a time once I did fall asleep. Not much rest, but knowing I’m off for three days will help me push through.</p> The Defiant Ones (Trailer) http://nashp.com/the-defiant-ones-trailer http://nashp.com//posts/media/[trailers]/the defiant ones trailer.md Fri, 16 Jun 2017 15:18:09 -0500 <div style="width:0;height:0"> </div><div class="videoContainer" style="padding-bottom:56.25%"><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/qT5FeylUWO0?rel=0&wmode=transparent&rel=0&autohide=1&showinfo=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></div> Opportunities (Friday, June 16th) http://nashp.com/6-16-17 http://nashp.com//posts/[lifestyle]/[journal]/opportunities (friday, june 16th).md Fri, 16 Jun 2017 10:04:37 -0500 <p><img src="//blotcdn.com/ebaab3aca2/image-cache/1497625475834/f8trnk-img_4139.jpeg" width="1867" height="1400"></p> <p>I see the opportunities in front of me.

I’m beginning my morning with planning and writing out ideas and things that need to be done. I have a few projects coming, you should see the first one Monday morning.</p> <p>iOS 11 is currently on my iPad, and although its buggy in its Beta form, it completely changes the way I think about the iPad. Before this Beta, I had already pushed the iPad to its limit, and was using its limitations to my advantage to brew creativity. But now, with all of this <a href="http://bit.ly/2t71tIA">new power</a> iOS 11 has given me, I haven’t even scratched the surface on what this little device is capable of. The future is very bright for the iPad.</p> <p>My new schedule is something I’m really enjoying. It’s almost too good to be true. I moved to a new town recently, and moved to a new location at my job. I got a new apartment (<a href="https://www.facebook.com/nashpitrejr/posts/10154423374501205">here’s some pictures of it)</a>, and I live walking distance to the coffee shop I’m currently writing at. My schedule, which started this week, is work Wednesday through Saturday, and then I’m off Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday—a three day weekend, every week. The thought of this much time off at once is liberating. Even when I was getting two days off, they were rarely next to each other, but now, each week has a mini-vacation connected to it. What can I do with this time? Is this the perfect opportunity to finally go to college? Get another job? Become a body builder? So many options.</p> It’s always more important when you lose it http://nashp.com/its-always-more-important-when-you-lose-it http://nashp.com//posts/me/[studio]/it’s always more important when you lose it.md Fri, 16 Jun 2017 09:46:25 -0500 <div style="width:0;height:0"> </div><div class="videoContainer" style="padding-bottom:56.25%"><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/9JPjipLBrDs?rel=0&wmode=transparent&rel=0&autohide=1&showinfo=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></div> <p>I made a music video this week. A lot of the music I’ve recorded this year has been without drums. As I build out this new album, I expect this to continue. Is it possible that I can make an entire album without drums, and instead, just pianos, guitars, and other instruments?

He does the homework and breaks down why this could be a thing. I don’t believe it, but I appreciate the investigating. I still think Spurs. No matter where he goes, this quote is what I’ve been saying about him leaving the Clippers and that extra money on the table:</p> <blockquote> <p>Being Chris Paul is all the leverage Chris Paul needs, right? Maybe a shot at a ring is worth $50 million to him.</p> </blockquote> <p>Chris Ryan ultimately agrees with me:</p> <blockquote> <p>San Antonio makes the most sense for Paul. He becomes an immediate and huge upgrade at point guard, plays for a team that takes winning basketball games as seriously as he does, and plays for a coach who knows how to navigate a season in order to peak in the playoffs.</p> </blockquote> Thoughts On Apple (WWDC 2017) http://nashp.com/thoughts-on-apple-wwdc-2017 http://nashp.com//posts/tech/[apple]/thoughts on apple (wwdc 2017).md Thu, 15 Jun 2017 12:52:39 -0500 <p>Here’s a recap of everything Apple announced at <span class="small-caps">WWDC</span>:</p> <div style="width:0;height:0"> </div><div class="videoContainer" style="padding-bottom:56.25%"><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/wXLa5tprhLc?rel=0&wmode=transparent&rel=0&autohide=1&showinfo=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></div> <p>(Or here’s the entire keynote.)</p> <div style="width:0;height:0"> </div><div class="videoContainer" style="padding-bottom:56.25%"><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/oaqHdULqet0?rel=0&wmode=transparent&rel=0&autohide=1&showinfo=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe></div> <p>My iPad will be getting the biggest facelift ever with this new update, where iOS 11 has become even more powerful and can now replace a computer better than before.

These artist and directors spend years working on their projects, and then you fly through it, without ever getting to know its deeper meanings.</p> WWDC 2017: A few days away and still no leaks http://nashp.com/wwdc-2017-a-few-days-away-and-still-no-leaks http://nashp.com//posts/tech/[apple]/wwdc 2017- a few days away and still no leaks.md Thu, 01 Jun 2017 09:05:13 -0500 <p><a href="https://daringfireball.net/2017/05/when_the_scoops_run_dry">John Gruber</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p>The closer we get to the <span class="small-caps">WWDC</span> keynote, the more likely things are to get spoiled. But here we are 5 days out and no one has leaked just about anything about iOS 11 or MacOS 10.13, or what’s going on with this 10.5-inch iPad Pro, or if there’s anything new coming for WatchOS or tvOS. Again, there’s a lot of time between now and Monday morning, but it might be time to give Tim Cook credit for<span class="push-double"></span> <span class="pull-double">“</span><a href="https://www.theverge.com/2012/5/29/3051521/tim-cook-apple-will-double-down-on-secrecy-on-products">doubling down on secrecy</a><span class="push-double"></span><span class="pull-double">”</span>.</p> </blockquote> <p><span class="small-caps">WWDC</span> is the biggest day for Apple. It’s the day that lays out the plans for the year. And we know nothing about what’s coming Monday. I have a good feeling about this one.</p> Monthly Recap (May 2017) http://nashp.com/monthly-recap-may-2017 http://nashp.com//posts/me/[recaps]/[about 2017]/monthly recap (may 2017).md Wed, 31 May 2017 23:20:25 -0500 <p><img src="//blotcdn.com/ebaab3aca2/image-cache/1496290824104/vzl6io-img_1467.jpeg" width="1200" height="628"></p> <p>What a month. A lot happened (new town, new apartment, new job location, new baby in the family). I broke through barriers, and forced my words to arrive on the page. It started with <a href="http://nashp.com/zero-gravity">Zero Gravity</a>, then an 8-minute song, titled <a href="http://nashp.com/nashp-i-always-mean-well">I Always Mean Well</a>. I wrote about <a href="http://nashp.com/endless">Endless</a>, Frank Ocean’s album before the <a href="http://nashp.com/tagged/blonde">album</a>. I wrote my mom a simple <a href="http://nashp.com/happy-mothers-day">Happy Mother’s Day</a> paragraph about how much she means to me. I wrote a birthday post to myself, titled <a href="http://nashp.com/31">31: a blank canvas</a>. I announced <a href="http://nashp.com/art-at-the-park">Art At The Park</a>, a 6-week small group for the summer. I wrote about <a href="http://nashp.com/chris-paul-and-the-spurs-heres-my-thoughts">Chris Paul</a> hopefully going to the Spurs. I wrote about how it’s been a year since I drank any <a href="http://nashp.com/one-year-no-alcohol-complete">alcohol</a>. And the one that I haven’t spoke about yet, but spent several days building: my <a href="http://nashp.com/about/">About</a> page has become an all-in-one location for everything on my site. It simplified everything for me, while giving me more power and flexibility.</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://nashp.com/the-sky-is-not-the-limit-your-mind-is-%E2%80%94-marilyn-monroe">Marilyn Monroe</a>:</p> <p>The sky is not the limit.
