Drop100 2020, p2


I never get everything transitioned over. But when I try for something really crazy, what I get done as a result is still surprisingly aggressive.

One of the main reasons I didn’t get as much done as anticipated is that my new M1 Mac arrived early! I thought it wouldn’t get to me until January, but instead I got it on Christmas Eve. Naturally there are a lot of extra projects and processes surrounding getting this machine up and running, and transitioning off of my iPad and older Mac — which I’ve already done. Those are much more entertaining (and unexpectedly time consuming) than the other stuff I was expecting to work on.

For my update, all the strikethrough text below is either done or dropped since the 19th. I’m putting this here to keep myself honest. And hopefully to provide a little inspiration for you!
