Money Heist, "Flexable" Childcare, & Learning to Write Like Hemingway

Money Heist, "Flexable" Childcare, & Learning to Write Like Hemingway

Yep, I’ve been tinkering a ton with Notion and Super. And I’m always doin’ the mess around with Hemingway. On top of that, I spent a ton of time over the last few weeks with Tokyo, Denver, Berlin, Rio, and Nairobi. They’re a lot of fun. #moneyheist

Notion + Super = New Personal Website!

I went deep down the rabbit hole with Notion. I think I woke up at one point, bleary-eyed, covered in Cheeto dust and Snickers wrappers. My Project: Create a personal website with Notion at the core.

I wrote all about it here. I should've tracked my time. Over the last week, I worked on it for at least two hours a day. I'm guessing I put in 20 hours (considering there was a bunch of trial and error).

If you're not interested in the nerdy details of the build, but want to see the end result. Here you go!

Tech I Love: Hemingway Editor

Hemingway Editor is another tool that I recommend CONSTANTLY.

I obviously love stringing words together into sentences. When I feel like something I've written is wordy, I immediately run it through Hemingway to tighten up the sentence to make it more concise - and impactful.

The online version of Hemingway Editor is completely free. The desktop version, Hemingway App, is available for a one-time payment of $19.99.

Check it aht.

On Netflix: Money Heist

🤯 Money Heist on Netflix. So good. I was not expecting to love this show as much as I do. It's all about the characters. They're the best (I lean Tokyo). And the elaborate plot.

Set in Madrid, a mysterious man known as "The Professor" recruits a group of eight people, who choose cities for code-names, to carry out an ambitious plan that involves entering the Royal Mint of Spain, and escaping with €2.4 billion.

💡Tip: Watch the Spanish version. It's so much better. You won't even notice that you're reading subtitles three minutes in - because you'll be hooked.

I love Daniel Pudi

If you haven't seen the clip of Daniel Pudi's appearance on Larry King Live, you must watch this now. And...wait for it.

I love Daniel Pudi even more after seeing that. I also love him because:

  1. He was on Community, which is one of the greatest shows of all time.
  2. He sings Polish songs.
