- Notion for any of my document needs
- Roam for daily notes, organizing ideas, and writing

- I'm all-in on the Apple ecosystem, but Spotify is just so much better than Apple Music.
- Kindle for all my reading needs. I don't use an e-reader, but the mobile and desktop apps are superb
- Nothing for TV shows, because
I don't watch them
- Correction: Since I wrote this, I watched one movie. Netflix works well.
- Nothing for video games, because I don't play them

- DBngin, Laravel Valet for my local webserver needs
- PHPUnit, PHPStan Pro for testing
- PHPStan doesn't seem to be as common in our community, but it's so good. When you do a small refactor, you will break things. Your tests might still pass, but a lot of things can break in real world usage. When you properly typehint and annotate things, running PHPStan after a refactor is extremely useful. It catches mistakes you made, and now you can fix them in two minutes rather than the production catching on fire.
- Lean / Laravel Nova for admin panels
- GitHub for storing all projects
