What I'm Geeking Out About This Week - 10/17/14


Welcome to another of my weekly geek outs!

This week is a random mixture of things that are going on in my world. Hope you enjoy them!

I've been following the Happier blog for a little while now, and I had gotten the advice recently to keep up with jotting down daily happy moments. The Happier app came to my attention, which is an awesome way to curate your happy moments and can create a positive community around you of people sharing their own moments and appreciating yours. It's a create, simple, free app for download that I encourage you all to take a look at. It's important for us to appreciate the moments, big or small, that make us happy each day.

The new Mac operating system came out yesterday and I just got it installed this morning. I like it already! It's a nice, fresh new coat of paint and adds some cool new features (which you can read all about here). I appreciate that Apple is making these updates free for users, which I think is the way to go. Maybe once the next huge update comes then we'll pay for that premium product but these iterative updates, just like with iOS, should be free since it helps all users have more secure, functional devices. Looking forward to playing around in Yosemite some more!

  • NYC

I spent a fair amount of time in New York City when I interned there during the first half of this year. I really enjoy the city and how much there is to do there. Most of my graduate school cohort is still around that area so I'm going down to visit next month. I look forward to hopefully ending up somewhere around there further down my professional journey. There is just so much activity going on there and I like to be a part of it or at least near it! Does anyone out there have a favorite part of NYC?

Thanks for stopping by!
