Why I still use Standard Notes 3 years on

Peace of mind I've always wanted a digital "lockbox" where I would feel comfortable to write and store personal things, whether my own beliefs and opinions, or sensitive information like health records. Because privacy is a core tenet of Standard Notes, end-to-end encryption is built into the application - so only I can read my notes. That's why Standard Notes is, and will continue to be my personal digital "lockbox" for my thoughts for many years to come. Flawless syncing In the last 3 yea...

Cold winter's day

After days of being stuck inside sick, I felt well enough to step foot outside the four walls I call home. The sky was a vivid shade of blue, with the sun hidden behind a curtain of grey clouds. The trees were covered in a thick blanket of white frost. Icicles hung from the branches, sparkling like crystals as light from the sun hit them. The air was crisp and still, and the only sound was the occasional chirp of a bird or the rustle of the leaves in the wind. Every breath I took was visible, an...

Second time... Unlucky

Yesterday I woke up to having a bit of a sore throat. I didn't think much of it but when it got to around midday, my body started to ache a bit. The aching kept getting progressively worse throughout the whole day, and by time I went to bed, I was feeling very rough. I woke up today with what only I can describe as razor blades in my throat. It hurts like hell to talk, and to cough. The aching of the body is still present too, as well as a headache. I ended up taking a Covid test, and not to m...

Rain is a beautiful thing

I love rain, especially on those days when I just can't be bothered to do anything. I love sitting in my living room with a hot cup of coffee, and look out the window, enjoying the relaxing sound of rain drops hitting the window.

It helps me to work that little bit harder, and when the day is done, rain helps me get a good night's sleep when I need it the most. Rain is a beautiful thing. ...
