“Apple Watch” Cedar Park, 2023

My family gave me an Apple Watch for Christmas, which was totally unexpected. It’s fun to use! I like playing with the different watch faces, and the functionality is nice. I like to be able to see the weather conditions mostly, and the sunrise/sunset times.

I’ve also worn it while running, but since I use Strava on the phone, the watch is there just to see my heart rate (out of curiosity). But the first time I went running with it, it was very distracting, with pings and dings and other stuff. When I run, I like to just zone out and listen to music or my own breathing, so the constant alerts were pretty annoying. I’ve since added a “Run” focus mode that disables everything except calls and messages from family and that solves that problem. Yay!

“First Love 初恋” Cedar Park, 2022

Today I watched all 9 episodes of First Love 初恋 on Netflix. It was so good! The best dorama I have seen in a long time. In fact, I’m ready to re-watch it, which I don’t think I’ve ever done with a dorama before.

“Zen” Cedar Park, 2022

I was browsing Disney Plus last night and came across Zen – Grogu and Dust Bunnies. What a fun little story that combines Star Wars and Studio Ghibli. I liked it very much.

It was very different from the show I watched next, which I also enjoyed. Episodes 8-11 of Andor were excellent. Probably my favorite of the Star Wars television series.

I started watching Only Murders in the Building today. I love it! I am a huge fan of Steve Martin and Martin Short, and they are hilarious in this murder-mystery. I made it through 4 episodes and am looking forward to more. It’s so fun!
