    Was twiddling my thumbs and ended up getting a Q Explorist 3 on a nice deal.

    To be honest, in comparison to the OG Huawei watch it's a side move. The Q is bigger, has ambient light sensor built in and is more future proof OS wise. The Huawei has a HRM and still looks like a stunner. They both should fit with the Mi Mix 2 just fine.
    I just have to figure out what to do with my Moto 360. It's still a nice watch and I like it...but need to decide.

    I think it'll be fine. It's mostly going to be the dress watch to replace what the Hu Watch currently does.

    I've tried it on in Best Buy and loved the weight of the smoke grey one. I liked the stainless steel one too as it looked like the smoke grey version. I went with the rose gold because as much as I don't like gold, it's nice to have a gold looking watch in the closet. So I'm looking forward to it. Plus it'll match the gold accents on the Mix 2 just fine.

    I think I might have to update my iPhone unfortunately. I had an unexpected shutdown the other day for the first time (at a random percentage) and it hasn't happened since but I still have worries about that possibly happening again. According to Apple, this was fixed for the 7 series in 11.2 something. My hands are tied but I really don't want to do it.

    Considering that this happened while I was at school(!!), I really can't take the chance but I'll like to weigh my options.
    I possibly don't have the time to do a 25+ minute drive to the Apple Store run this week but it seems like I have 3 (or 4?) options.
    1) Update it and take a hit for sure on the battery life front, requiring a battery case after all (that brick life). Apple is only signing the current update, which means I wouldn't have the option to just roll back to the update where this was fixed.
    2) Leave it where it is, trade it in along with my other trade in value I got and get a iPhone 8.
    3) Do the above step but get another SE. I know. I miss the small form factor. (kind of a plot twist but unlikely because that camera isn't the best in situations I need it for occasionally.)
    4) Take a pause on doing anything here and switch back to the Galaxy A3 (which is a solid phone, but has performance hiccups), and possibly dabble with a phone hunt again, maybe an Android phone?

    Just wanted to write my options out so that I could refer to them later. I do know a thing though, I don't want to have 3 phones.

    Whoa it's past time for me to sleep...

    Thank you. I don't want to deal with it but at the same time, where I go to school and where I live is 30+ minutes away from one another so I have to make a sensible choice.

    This week is crazy on the school side of things and life side of things this weekend. I have a lot of things due. The paper was the first thing, which I got a good grade on but 3 things remain...

    It is waaay to early in the morning to be thinking about Bourbon. But here we are. I would happily submit to a 15% tax on top of every other tax with the condition that stupid people are shipped off to Antartica on a one-way ticket. Or at least a Federal mandate that says no stupid people until the 3rd cup of coffee.

    On days like these, there isn't enough things needed to cope.

    Just have to clear the head and hit the reset button.

    Got a lot done today thankfully but ugh I hope my Surface will turn on in the morning. I guess I should be glad this happened on the 13th day of a 14 day return/exchange window but ugh.

    If it does turn on in the morning, cool. If not, I have to take myself to Best Buy after work and see what happens there. Not sure if this is trying to tell me something or if every other Surface can have issues too?

    Have almost 4 hours left before boarding the plane to Seattle. On the plus side enough time for a nice croissant and a cappuccino in Paris Charles de Gaulle airport.

    It doesn't work. This week has been a time of exhaustion for me (not just the stuff I wrote about, other stuff too). At this point, I don't need another problem child device, I'll return it and lose 15%.

    That's unfortunate to see that happen.
