Galaxy fold this, Huawei Mate X that. You can say what you like about android devices but some people are waiting for Apple’s take.
However people familiar with the matter are insistent that Apple are only interested in one foldable pictured below.
Forcing Myself To Write
Well what on earth have you been doing on your blog for the last few years you might wonder. Well, I’ve been typing - but very little writing. So I’ve pulled out a notebook and forced myself to use it to write in my own handwriting!
Part of this is a push for less reliance on digital media, but mostly this is a real push to improve my handwriting. I’ve tried to do this several times, mainly using my iPad Pro, but a post by Chris Wilson has made me yearn for the the mental improvements also.
To be frank my handwriting is terrible - years of my writing everything on a laptop or phone has exasperated bad habits picked up soon after college. I simply never had reason to write much outside of greetings cards and the occasional note. My journaling is done using Day One, and everything else is emails and text messages. Leading to a scrawl that resembles something between a toddler and a doctor, which I find quite embarrassing to be honest.
So both myself and my 7yo old are doing the same handwriting practice and it’s wonderful.

The Meditative Scroll
Social media gets a bad rep at the moment. Screen time this, Twitter that. Much like diet it’s hard to separate the good from the bad, so you just feel guilty whatever you do.
Yet amongst all the barrage of negative press I think there is something to social media usage in a positive way. I’ve found quite a bit of comfort and relaxation from consciously pulling out my smartphone and scrolling by.
Simply scrolling through my feed, and much like meditation, taking in the information and then letting it go is hugely beneficial. Not interacting, not thinking or dwelling, just digesting and letting the information flow past me and out of my mind.
I’m never going to start a new movement with this - but I thought I’d share a bit of positivity towards my smartphone after all the months of self loathing.
When we talk about remote work, can we also talk about ‘remote friendships’? Met the best people through Twitter, IG, online connections. 💙🤗 - Alex Muench
I need to remember this more than I do. I get obsessed with all the negativity around using social media. Yet most of the connections and friendships I have are those forged online.
The only reason I podcast is because of Twitter and finding people to do it with. Many of the people I consider friends I have never met in person, simply read their words, listed to their voices and occasionally has a conversation across the web. Social media is great when used in the correct, posistive way.
