Being Selfish

I’ve been making some changes to my blog.  And as I have been cleaning thins up, I found this post still sitting in the draft folder.  It’s from December 1, 2011.  I don’t remember whose blog I was reading, but what this blog says is still true today.  And you know what, that shit stops today.  I’ve got to do a better job of taking care of myself.  lastMeme


As I sit here at lunch reading a friends blog, I have learned some interesting things about her.  I have also realized something very interesting about myself.  I never learned how to be selfish.  I look back on my life, and every decision I have made, was made with so that the end result allowed me to help someone else.  There has never been a decision that only benefited me.  Now, I am 33 years old….damn, I’m 33, that is another post to be made….but at 33, I am going to try and make decisions that benefit me, and me alone.

I hope this goes well.  Not that I want to be a selfish person, but I need to learn how to take care of me, and not be the SuperHereo for everyone else.


Note Taker Update

I’ve been trying to find something to use for taking notes on my iPad.  Well, on my Android tablet, which later turned into an iPad when it was time to upgrade.  Yeah, I know, unnecessary detail, but hey, I type like I think.  I was using the web version of EverNote for a while, and I really liked it.  Then the job moved to a subscription of Office 365 which included OneNote.  The plan was to use OneNote for work stuff and EverNote for personal.

EverNote and OneNote are both really nice note taking apps, but what elevated OneNote to my app of choice, is that OneNote does not require an internet connection.  Well, let me say that a different way.  Both need an internet connection to sync your documents, but OneNote will work offline with a copy of your document that is cached locally.  EverNote will not do that.

If EverNote were to ever offer that feature, it would become the clear winner for me.  So for now, OneNote it will be.  Plus, it does not hurt that the job has a subscription to Office 365.
