Life with a smartphone is pretty sweet I must admit. I can text much easier now than my flip phone could, and when I want to look something up on the go, it is easy as switching data on, opening Chrome, and searching, since I keep data off unless I need it on.

The new Keurig also works a LOT better as the coffee is hot now, and much stronger thanks to this one having a strong setting. I am happy with both purchases for sure. I am ready to get back to mowing lawns though since it was 49 today and I got some spring fever!

Well the biggest thing ever has happened today. I, Mikey Pizano, now have an ACTIVE Droid 4, with all the fun things that owning a smartphone brings. I have 5GB of data, unlimited talk, and unlimited texting, for 45 dollars a month.

I went with Straight Talk as it is prepaid, and I can get a few extra cards in the summer to keep me going through the winter. I can upgrade the phone later but for now the Droid 4 will do just fine. I also got a new Keurig coffee maker as well, but that is hardly news compared to the phone.

Well, part of the master plan has begun. I have a new battery for the Droid 4 coming on Monday, it is running Marshmallow, and so is the Tab Pro. I decided to install Cyanogenmod on both of them. I need to say that I am pretty happy with how it runs on the Droid 4.

I figured that if Samsung wasn’t going to update the Tab Pro, I would do it myself. I installed all my programs again and I will start tweaking things now little by little. I like that Cyanogenmod is also a LOT lighter than the Samsung ROM as well so it should be faster now too.

I did some more writing last night which makes me happy. I am going to add a good bit more to this next chapter as well in the form of a few more characters. I am not entirely sure where this well go, but it will be good to add a few more to use later on.

I am planning a few big things this weekend, providing it all goes as planned. I am hoping that it does, since it will make me very happy. I don’t want to say too much though right now. I will post the details on Saturday though.

Well on a very good note, I have been doing more writing lately. I did a good bit last night, probably around 2000 words, which makes me very happy indeed. I am going to do some more tonight as well. I am even considering adding in some more chapters as well, if all works out.

I am not sure if I will, but I wouldn’t mind getting a new toy to motivate me. The clickity clacker was supposed to have been shipped today, but the tracking number isn’t working right yet. I am looking forward to using that again for sure.

Today wasn’t too bad. I did a little more writing last night which makes me happy. I am getting back into the mood to actually do some writing for a change. I have a long way to go with version 2 but I do have some really good ideas for later sections when I get to them.

It was warm today so the snow is melting more and more and soon it will be gone. I am happy since I would much rather an early spring so I can get back to mowing instead of hoping for some snow to clean up. Plus, with the snow blower messed up, it makes me happy if I don’t need to fix it yet!

Today wasn’t that great of a day either. I did some writing last night, using the PowerBook G4. I saved it to a flash drive directly, and shut it down. I put the drive into desktop, and the drive was empty. I put the drive back on the PowerBook and no luck, so the file is gone.

The vacuum switch decided to break today as well so I ordered one off Amazon. My keyboard should be shipped soon, and I do look forward to getting it back. I am just hoping they don’t send a refurbished one. It will be warm this week as well which is nice.
