Things To Do Before I Turn 50

  (also known as my "TA-DA" list as opposed to a "to do" list) It was my 49th birthday a few days ago and this got me thinking. Any birthday that ends with a zero always feels a bit like milestone or a landmark and, when I hit the big "five-o" in 2022, I don't want huge parties or celebrations but I would like to have ticked a few things off my low-effort bucket list.   I see these things as a way to improve my mental and physical health, plus a few slightly off-the-wall experiences that would make for great memories.  Start running again and include the following: Lead a C25K group again  Participate in parkrun EVERY week where possible  < ongoing (now parkrun Run Director too) Visit local landmarks whilst running  Train for a long race - building up from 5k > 10k > 10 miles > half marathon, with a couple of longer trail races mixed in  Lose a lot bit of weight Post more on Instagram or give the blog a bit of a reboot < ongoing Look at

Benefits of a Laptop Bag

When you're someone who works on projects on the go, you need a good laptop bag to help keep things organized. A laptop bag is convenient to carry around when you travel, and you can set up shop at any place with WiFi access. Make it easier to complete your work when you're not at home and invest in a laptop bag. Here are some benefits of a laptop bag.

Benefits of a Laptop Bag

Protects Your Laptop and Accessories

The top priority of a laptop bag is to protect your computer and your accessories. Whether you have a laptop fan, mouse, laptop cover, adapter, and other small items, you need a bag that's durable to keep everything safe.

Also, you have extra padding if you bump into things or are on a shaky train ride. Find a laptop bag with an additional strap to make it better for carrying around as well.

You can adjust it to your comfort zone to help you on a trip or a morning commute to work. When you have a good bag material, it'll help preserve all of your accessories in different compartments of your bag.

Good for Carry-On

If you're trying to get some work done while taking a flight, you can use the laptop bag as a carry-on. You won't have to worry about stolen items when TSA checks your items, or it has to pass through the metal detectors.

Also, you have the convenience to ensure your laptop is in the bag right next to you. Take advantage of using the bag to have a place where you can store your other items, such as a flash drive or cooling pad.

Take advantage of WiFi access to check emails and get things started before you get to your destination.

Lightweight to Handle

It's nice to handle your laptop with a strap on your back, but sometimes you need a rolling laptop bag. This is perfect when you need to carry another bag on your shoulder and feel more flexible.

When you have options to carry your laptop, it's better for your social and work affairs.

Get a notebook backpack to help you along when you're going to shared office space or heading to your next business meeting in another state.

Take time to find the ideal bag that allows you to store your laptop safely and stay comfortable. It'll help you stay organized for any of your future endeavors.
