I’ve recently taken up bullet journaling, and it’s completely changed my thought life. New blog post (link in bio ) I found @rydercarroll ’s book “The Bullet Journal Method”. I didn’t read with any expectations but his system completely changed how I interfaced with my thoughts. I notice more curiosity where before there was judgment and shame, I notice more intention where before there was worry. I’ve been journaling for over 2 months now and filled a journal and about 75% through this one. @amanda .faye got me this one from @archerandolive on Valentine’s Day. The black is pretty dope but gel pens are too finicky for me when I need to jot down quickly. Going to try Perfectly Penned journals next. What you see here is my weekly spread, I detail it more on the blog post on my site lettersfromaceo.com/blog (click the link in the bio ) Let me know if you’re curious about how I bullet journal and if you’d like me to share more about my systems and experience! #bulletjournal #buju #weeklyspread
This woman amazes me every single day with her love, empathy, understanding, and beauty. She is wise, patient, and above all else, tolerant of me lol. Love you baby. @amanda .faye
Me and my gurl

A real conversation I had with @tannermalmedal Tanner: Yo you ever going to post that picture of us we took? Me: Why? Tanner: Cause its been like 2 months since you took it and if youre not going to post it then let me! Me: I havent even been on insta for a month give me a break! What are you desperate? Tanner: Yeah for content. Me: Well if I want to take a picture just for me to look at every night then that is my prerogative. Tanner: *Rolls eyes* So here you go Tanner. Here is the picture you wanted. Though Tanner and I like to joke around a lot its awesome to have such a fulfilling relationship with someone who connects with you on multiple levels, its a blast getting philosophical with you man. Love you bro.
I bought matching boots for that one day in LA when it rains. Luna was ecstatic. So much so that she made us walk all around the neighborhood. Literally 4 people commented on the fact it was 85 degrees and that we didn’t need these boots. What do they know!?🖤
We got to the end of a Hay Maze together! 🖤 📸: @amanda .faye
You guys think I should race her? She might win because I respect traffic laws.
Just got a study version of the Bible and I’m looking forward to reading it. Naturally, reading the Bible for a newly saved Christian can be pretty daunting, so I’ve been looking around for something to help deepen my understanding as I read. I think it makes it twice as long with the extra insights, which might make it more daunting, but we’ll see. Got a goal to finish it in 2019, so I’d better get started. Been enjoying the @hereadstruth devotionals as well. 💛
Sick today but still on brand. It’s the small things. 🖤💛
Found some yellow shoes. Lol actually first pair of converse I’ve ever had.
Funny story, my wheels are “plasti-dipped”. It’s like spray paint but plastic that you can peel off at any point you want. As I was spraying my wheels my neighbor walked up and and I was like “Well? What do you think?” He looked at the wheels and was like “Never seen plasti dip on a Tesla before” and walked away. Hahaha. What can I say, this is honestly easier/cheaper then getting new wheels and 95% of people have no idea haha. What’s something you’ve made before?
So I’m sure you’ve noticed by now I haven’t vlogged in a couple of months. I apologize for not informing you all. Been going to a ton of changes in my life recently. Honestly great changes, getting closer to God, closer to my family, and closer to my work family and giving them stronger leadership. I am focusing my efforts, and with that, came a lot of things I had to cut to make time for my new priorities. Some of these cuts include; Appearing in the Battle Universe channel, the Team Edge Channel, Fail Time, REKT, (I wasn’t really in that channel that much ), cutting many personal un-announced projects, and vlogging on my personal vlog channel. I want you to know this so you’re not questioning my intentions as you have probably seen a little bit less of me. I hope and pray as a result of this, our content will become more focused, more entertaining for you, more enjoyable for the team to create, and content that better reflects God. I hope you can understand the cut backs, but I promise we’ll become closer as a result of it as well. This doesn’t mean I’ll never vlog again, but who knows what the future will hold. Thanks for always being on this journey with me. 🖤 📸: @bringoutthegold
This phone is a bit of a throwback. The Xiaomi Mi Mix 1st gen. Straight from China. Actually was difficult to get about a year ago cause you don’t see these a lot in the states. It’s one of the first phones a while back to really push that bezel-less display. It’s actually massive. Closer to an iPad mini. Runs well, but in my opinion stock android is the way to go. I feel the trade offs aren’t there for OS skins. What’s your phone of choice?
This picture was taken by @amanda .faye right before our father/daughter date last Saturday. One of my favorite pictures of us. To be fully transparent, it was right after I said “Were going to get cake pops!”. Haha so it’s not a surprise that she would get excited, however Luna has really been starting to show physical affection and I LOVE IT. All I want to do is hold her and cuddle her and she always has SO much to do that has nothing to do with that! I’m just excited that she is getting more cuddly over time, and not the opposite. I can be patient. 🖤.
Hello. I am serious in this picture. Serious about business. My business is serious. We don’t joke around at all and nothing is ever funny because we’re all super serious business people. There is no proof you have ever even seen me crack a smile. Because serious. Serious business. 📸: @bringoutthegold #style #meanswear #ootd
Luna is hiding in plain sight here. It’s so funny, she’s still in the stage of thinking when she shuts her eyes we can’t see her. Of course we play along because it’s possibly the cutest thing there is. So while she may not be the best at hide and seek, she’s still killing the game with that cute smile. 🖤 What games did you play as a kid that you think Luna and I would enjoy? Super curious!
Been using the iPhone XS Max and I have to say I’m pretty pleased with it. I put a matte black skin on the back from @colorware_inc as well to give it that darker vibe. The camera is surprisingly more color accurate than its predecessor (the X ). Been enjoying having more dynamic range as well in my phone photography. You all know me by this point, at the studio we use a wide range of cameras. Typically my camera of choice is the A7S ii, but as many great photographers have said, the best camera is always the one by your side. I’ve actually taken all the photos in my new layout style with this iPhone (this exact photo was taken with an iPhone XS ). You be the judge, Dope Or Nope? Android or iPhone? #iphoneographer #iphonegraphy #tech #technology
New profile pic! I’m sure you’ve noticed by now my new style on insta! Been enjoying posting pictures with a high contrast black/white/gold aesthetic. For some reason this vibe really resonates with me creatively so you’ll be getting a lot more post from me. Before, I didn’t post a lot because I didn’t even care for my own style now I’m really enjoying being creative in my feed. I know these more aesthetic photos aren’t super popular cause everyone wants me to post selfies or silly stuff, but Instagram is a place where I can push my creativity a bit farther, just for fun. Also I’ve always been into product reviews and product photography (you might assume this from the @hi5dopeornope Channel haha ) but with that channel we only review silly things. Well I might post some product reviews/photographs of more obscure or popular items that don’t really fit the channel. Hope you enjoy it either way! Would love to know your thoughts on all this! Dope or Nope? #menswear #style #ootd #streetfashion
We’re serious about our hats.
First time Luna got her own seat on an airplane! It was definitely more enjoyable for @amanda .faye and I cause she had a bit more space to move around. This time though we remembered headphones! This is a must! Also, we kinda sorta vlogged the trip so let me know if you want us to edit/upload that to the Matt & Amanda channel!
No matter what we said she wanted to hold the wand upside down. Then none of the spells worked and she was frustrated, yet still persistent to hold the wand upside down. I just really got a kick out of that for some reason. There was a little musical number in the street at Universal and she was using the wand as a microphone to mimic the singer and my heart melted. This girl is independent and steadfast and I love it. What is the most prominent trait that you have? Don’t hit me with a negative, only positives 👌
Just another shot of my lovely wife. 🖤 How are we still able to get in the pool much less HAVE to get in the pool cause it’s like 90 degrees and 90% humidity in Florida! What’s the weather where you are right now?
