While previously ‘settling’ for WordPress, I’d often find myself in the search for a ‘proper CMS’. No more. Particularly since discovering the Genesis framework. Now I have a uniform framework for any premium Genesis child theme and I can build site I can rely on without any relearning.
As for WordPress: seamlessly embed YouTube vids, Tweets, Tumblr, Kickstarting campaigns and more simply pasting a link.
Stoicism is a school of Hellenistic philosophy founded in Athens by Zeno of Citium in the early 3rd century BC. The Stoics taught that destructive emotions resulted from errors in judgment, and that a sage, or person of “moral and intellectual perfection”, would not suffer such emotions.
After finally splashing out and buying the Fujifilm x100s, which I absolutely adore, I was conscious not to get carried away with accessories. As it turns out, I’ve pretty well just stuck with the same kit David Hobby users. It’s minimal and practical.

I’ve had it on my phone for months and still yet to find a place between the default Notes App and Evernote. I get John’s point of ‘reduced friction’ but, I just haven’t used it, probably never will again, but I still love it.
If you live in the 21st century you’ve probably had to listen to a lot of people tell you how busy they are. It’s become the default response when you ask anyone how they’re doing: “Busy!” “So busy.” “Crazy busy.” It is, pretty obviously, a boast disguised as a complaint.
