Got a great refund for our home purchase! Scheduling tours with their agents was easy, and the closing agent who we were assigned once we started making offers was pro. Because we prefer to do our own research, taking the refund with Openlistings was a no-brainer.
I'm moving house so use Rightmove to check out the market. The thing is, I've found the house, but still can't stop looking. It's so addictive. I spend ages looking at properties I certainly cannot afford as well as in areas we're not moving to. Is this healthy/normal behaviour?!
It's my secret weapon to visit cities, Hoodmaps offers crowdsourced maps of major cities with relevant info about districts and help people to know what's around them. Also you can add comments directly on the maps and it's a fun way to share fun info about specific places.
Awesome app for anyone who is concerned about the ingredients in their products! It's actually crazy the chemicals that companies are allowed to put in their makeup but that's a talk for a different day. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
One of my focuses in 2019 was learning to be still. It was more micro thinking for me until I read this book and realized it applies to a macro lens too. Recommend for anyone that deals with internalized stress.
I get *very* dry lips (esp in winter) and for some reason most chapsticks make it worse. Tarte's tinted balm is the only 1 that successfully moisturizes my lips. Plus, it adds a pretty color (subtle enough I can put it on w/o a mirror)
I tried using Notion or just plain notes but it never really worked for me. So now I use Typora as a Markdown editor, sync it with Google Drive, and launch it from terminal_velocity (https://github.com/vhp/terminal_velocity). Overall a pretty fast system, I think.
I’m so glad I discovered Jekyll when I did, and wish I’d learned about it sooner. It uses the same templating language that Shopify made and uses (Liquid) which is relatively easy to learn, even for an absolute beginner, like me. It’s not the fastest static site generator though.
