Opportunities (Friday, June 16th)

I see the opportunities in front of me. I see the accomplishments, I see the untapped potential: it’s all there for me to be proud of, while still remaining hungry. I am a vessel. I am more. Look around you, look at all of the good things, and all of the bad things—it’s there, laid out for you to acknowledge and appreciate. It’s always more important when you lose it.”


Friday, June 16th

Good morning. Apple just hired Sony executives (same ones that produced Breaking Bad and Netflix’s The Crown) for their own original video content goals, Amazon just bought Whole Foods, our favorite healthy grocery store, and it’s only 8:30 in the morning.

I’m sitting at the coffee shop, drinking my first cup, podcast are playing in my ear, as I prep a few of my key apps (Things, Ulysses). 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.

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 new power 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.

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 (here’s some pictures of it), 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.

I’m Nash. I create things.
