Kitty Poison Scare

My younger cat Finn got into a Lily this weekend which my wife and I discovered are extremely poisonous to cats. This destroyed any attempt of productivity on my blog or the work I brought home from the office. He is home now and seems to be okay. Going to get his blood tested to check kidney health tonight, once I’m reassured he’s going to be okay, I think I’m going to start working on the What I Carry post.

New Tech Post Idea

I definitely want to do some tech review posts on some of the tech I use everyday. I am going to start out by doing a series called What I Carry. Sort of a tech bag series where I will start out with a summary post, then follow it with more in depth posts on all the tech that I carry everyday. It’ll be a fun project and allow me to review tech but instead of random new tech coming out, I will review things I use everyday, the essentials.

Twitter #Oscars

Kinda disappointed with Twitter during the Oscars last night. During the 2016 Election Twitter was the best when watching debates and usually the Super Bowl but last night was boring. Not much was said by the people I follow, it seemed most weren’t even watching the Oscars at all.

Want to do a full post about my new Kindle Oasis. In short, it’s really great to read books on. Kindle has the benefit of not allowing you to get distracted unlike reading on an iPad or Phone. But the Oasis is on another level compared to the Paperwhite and other models.

I just listened to an episode of Mac Power Users with Marton Reece and it made me want to try and use Micro.Blog. I still want to do long posts but this will be nice to just share quick thoughts, a picture or a link.

Techuisite: the name.

Now before I go further I feel like I should explain the name for my site. Techuisite (pronounced like exquisite but with “tech” in front instead of “ex”) is a play on the words technology and requisite.

Technology is self explanatory.

The definition of requisite is, “made necessary by particular circumstances or regulations”.

In my opinion, technology is becoming a very important part of society, you could say it’s becoming a necessity by society.

I have been wanting to start a personal blog for awhile. I have many opinions and a lot of those opinions are revolved around technology. But to start a blog requires a good name. The past year I have been in pursuit of the perfect name for my blog.

When I started to build my schedule for the last semester at college, I came across the same word that most students cringe at, prerequisite. Prerequisite courses are courses that need to be fulfilled before registering and taking the next course.

This word stuck with me. I looked up the definition of requisite (prerequisite without the “pre”) and it was what I felt technology was to me and the world around me. Techuisite was thus born, and not only does the name have a meaning I was looking for but it also sounds and looks cool.

My new hobby.

I am on the brink of finally graduating from college and because of this I am hoping I will have a lot more time on my hands to try a hobby I have been thinking of pursuing for some time..

a blog.

I hope to dive into technology that interests me not only as gadgets but how they fit in my life. I don’t really have a specific goal for Techuisite yet but I am hoping by keeping my options open, it will spark new and creative avenues for me to explore along the way.

Stay tuned.
