Updates on stuff I wanna do.

From this post:
1) Finish my artwork
- not much progress here, despite this being the easiest task. Did some skin shading up to this point but that's it.

2) Learn a new song on guitar
- haven't even decided on what song I wanna do. 21 guns by Green Day? Something by Taylor Swift?

3) Play FFXIII
- the closest thing to FFXIII right now is the pre-order from Amazon and also my effort to learn Japanese.

4) Learn how to use game engines
- Looked at websites describing OpenGL and also watched instructional video at work about history of OpenGL and direct3D. I need to look into this more.

5) Blog makeover
- Blah

6) Buy a house.
- Looked at houses, nothing is screaming good deal so far. And no down payment money yet.

7) Go camping at least 2 times
- Blah

8) Play Football for at least 15 weekends
- Current Progress 1/15

9) Go hiking
- Yosemite? Big Sur? Somewhere in Palo Alto? Mount Tam again?
- Maybe I should make the Half Dome Hike a yearly thing.

10) Build my own computer
- Blah.

I hate the DMV

Today I found out that my driver's license expired.

I was trying to renew my auto insurance, which expires on the 26th this month. However, I was looking at my California driver's license and I got a shock. It has been expired for over a month!

Last year some time in May, I changed over to my California license. During the process, it had my Michigan license invalidated. Had my Michigan license still be valid, it would not have been expired. What is this deal about a license that only last several months?

Turns out that it's the day that coincided with the end of my opt period. This is terribly inconvenient for me.

The DMV sucks and there is no wonder why California is so deep in depth. Schwarzenegger should go back to making movies.

About this blog

A lot of stuff about what I think, and not what I am about. Which is good, because I would be able to make fun of Notre Dame, Wisconsin, Penn State, and discuss on our futility against Ohio State. (But Woo Shoelace!)

I still think the word "god" should not be capitalized, because like oxygen or air or universe, it's an entity, and is not specific or special in its meaning.
