Thank you all for your warm wishes on my new endeavor! Your support and such kind encouragements mean so much! I am really stoked on this! I will be making some posts with some recent wedding photos after this week.
As I've mentioned a million times before - it's my birthday week! I am SO excited to be turning 30! My twenties have been so fun but I'm looking forward to being a real grown up. I even started wearing lipstick this week - something (for some odd reason) I've always equated with being a real woman!
I know some people would rather pretend birthdays don't exist and just treat it like a normal day but I get EXCITED about my birthday. I like to celebrate it for an entire week and my family is nice enough to indulge me. This week all I can think about how my bur bur falls on 11.11.11 and I'll be 30- a very special birthday if you ask me.
That being said- it's been hard to concentrate on anything else. Not to mention I get very easily distracted by Twitter, Pinterest, how cute bunnies are, and the like. Do you know what's been helping me keep my sanity? A little app called Evernote!
While I was in Florida a few weekends ago I was showing my friend Todd my favorite features of the newer Lion OS on my Macbook Pro. When I opened my laptop he literally laughed out loud at the out of control number of sticky notes I had open. I quickly defended my need to have reminders, to do lists, and a place to jot down random notes & ideas. He agreed that it's smart to stay organized but promised me there were better ways. That's when he introduced me to Evernote! Probably the best app I've downloaded other than Shake It Photo & Instagram in my entire life. It's a really cool app that lets you jot down notes with the option to have a physical box to check something off your list (whoa), it has an app you can download for your phone & iPad that syncs so you can have all your information on whichever device you chose to use! Why didn't I hear about this sooner?! There are tons of other very useful features but those are really my favorites. The best part- IT'S FREE!
This has improved my productivity immensely! What do you do to stay productive and organized?
