Should you upgrade to iOS 12? iPhone SE

Should you upgrade to iOS 12?

Hello everyone,

It’s what everyone has been waiting for (Or at least what some of us has been waiting for. The new iPhone launch!

Yes! The new iPhone family has been released along with a new iOS as well.

SHOULD YOU UPGRADE (To ios 12)? That’s the more important question.

In my professional opinion as someone who uses their phones for gaming, productivity and making videos, I can tell you no.

I updated my iPhone SE today. I didn’t want to, but last time I tried not to update it, it automatically updated.

I decided not to fight back and let Apple have what they want. A NEW WORLD ORDER OF APPLE (Just joking).

The first thing I noticed with this update is that my battery went to 83% in the first few minutes I took it off the charger. I thought to myself, No way. This can’t be that bad.

It was that bad. 5 or 6 hours later….Not even hardcore use. I didn’t play any games. I didn’t watch any videos. I only checked my stocks on the  Robinhood app, which I highly recommend. I found my battery in critical condition (under 15%)

This freaked me out. It’s never been that bad.

I needed to use my charger, so I got my charger out of my bag (it’s not an official Apple charger), but I’ve used this charger for months.

It didn’t work. It didn’t work at all.

What did I do to solve this problem? Google (hard reset and soft following if that doesn’t work).

So, once again. I was left longing for more from Apple. I wasn’t interested in the new phones and wasn’t interested in iOS12. Not to mention! My phone got a battery downgrade!

What’s next you ask? There’s nothing I really can do. I just have to wait until Apple makes a patch for this new update or I might be switching to ASUS.

PS: I will not get a battery replacement. I’ll just buy a new phone~

Also,

Tell me what you think about your update!

 

 

How to be Tactful and diplomatic. (Pt 1)

I’ve been working on some personal demons. I finally found the root of the problem and the title says it all.

I’ve always looked at compromise as I have to give up something to make someone else happy. I disliked it so much I let it take over who I am as a person.

This is just a small snippet of the series of blogs I will post on this subject.

I’ve always answered to logic. If someone was acting a certain way or if someone needed sympathy, I would try to logic myself out of the situation.

I never put myself in the actual shoes of the ones I’m close with or have a connection with.

In the retail world, which I don’t work anymore. I used a mixture of logic, emotion, and understanding to solve a customers issue. The situation wasn’t him arguing at me, or vice versa.

We had a clear objective. We worked together to solve it.

I assumed that my close friends and family can read my mind, which they can’t. This created a lot of hostility with the people I care about. Even if they genuinely didn’t understand. I assumed that they did.

I had finally let my biased opinion take full control of myself. This was not good. A state of emergency went off and panicked in my mind.

If I can’t be tactful and diplomatic to the ones close to me, I have no chance in the workplace, at least without acting.

August already?

I was filling up on gas yesterday. I moved to a new city, so my previous rewards card didn’ work, so I signed up for a new one (who doesn’t like free gas).

Also, spill gas on my shoes every time I pull the gas nozzle out of my car (I think that’s just a curse on me though).

I noticed that I had to put the date. For some reason, I felt clammy. My breathing was heavy. It wasn’t because I was filling out paperwork (which is my kryptonite). It was because I had no idea what the time was. I looked around, hoping I would find a calendar, clock, or something that would help me figure out what the date was.

My natural instinct was to pull my phone out, but today had to be the days of all days I decided to leave my phone at home. So, now. I and the attendant, have no idea what the date it.

So you might be wondering, Jarryd, How did you end up filling the paperwork out.

The lightbulb in my head came back from retirement…..

My car has the date and time on the dashboard. I love technology.

The Good Mornings.

Good morning everyone. It’s Monday. Whether that is a blessing for some or a curse for others, we’re all still here. You’ll never know if that guy having a bad day might be your boss, So just make sure to smile and have a good day.

People gravitate to people who have a positive outlook. No one wants to hang around the guy who always says he’s tired and doesn’t want to be at work. He’ll make you tired also!

Keep a smile on and show this day who’s boss.

How to Write a Great Blog Post: A Beginner’s Guide

I liked this post. there’s some great information in this post, I recommend this read

The Art of Blogging

There are more blogs in existence than ever, yet more and more people are seduced by the idea of sharing their thoughts and ideas with the rest of the world.

As a matter of fact, it does seem as if there’s a war out there. Everyone is fighting for attention, there are so many things to learn and master. So many social networks, marketing techniques. There’s even an awful lot of content on blogging itself, which makes it even more frustrating.

How do you write a great blog post?

I wouldn’t be asking if I didn’t know the answer. Or would I …

First day of programming…….Ever

I’ve been in customer service for about as long as I can remember (which is way too long). So, I wanted to try something new. I’ve always been the hands-on kinda of guy, so I wanted a warehouse or industrial job. I tried them. I didn’t like them. So, now I’m thinking to myself,  what am I gonna do. What’s something I can create something from nothing?

That’s right, programming. Creating your own program! I thought to myself this is going to be great! It’s definitely not what I expected, but I’ll give it a shot! I can create the next Fortnite! All by myself! I was dead wrong. I can’t even figure out how to run the command prompt. Which, I didn’t even know was necessary until I COMPLETED THE WHOLE INTRODUCTORY COURSE ON PROGRAMMING (how does that happen).

So far, Programming is fun. It’s very frustrating and probably one of the more difficult things I’ve learned in my life. I’ve installed Python and partially understand the command prompt. Like they say, Once you hit rock bottom, there’s nowhere to go, but up.

LIES! I believe I’m going to break 10 computers before I become decent at programming. Only time will tell.

 

PS: I’ve already broken one laptop.
