It’s been a while…

Sunday, January 11th, 2015 at 6:49 pm

…and this time, I mean it!

I could probably do an epic post for the last 5 months but I’m going to try to keep it short.

At the end of July, I went to Seattle for a friend’s wedding. It was awesome.

August to Novemeber are honestly, a blur – I worked harder than I’d ever worked during August and September, pulling some more than ridiculous time/hours in the hopes of launching a big project. It was difficult. I did not have time to blog, I barely had time to sleep.

Since then, I’ve been a bit burned out/recovering slowly…but this post is probably an indication that things are slowly getting back to normal.

I’ve been playing a bit of WoW lately. I honestly think the best part of someone like me playing WoW, followed by not playing WoW, is the feeling of time you get back when you’re not playing. Suddenly, this Sunday seems like I can accomplish so much, as opposed to if I played WoW and it kind of all went into the wash.

Got some new video games (Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire, Hyrule Warriors, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Smash Bros.) but don’t have time to play them….

I purchased/assembled a new computer recently – it’s pretty powerful but the GPU can get pretty hot and the fans, pretty loud. After assembling this new computer, it was running fine for about 2 weeks and then suddenly was having BSOD/restarts 5 times a night for a couple of nights – I think it had to do with my GPU overheating. I believe I’ve properly configured the fans though now, so that it runs optimally.
Some hardware pieces I got:

Intel Core i7-4790K Quad-Core Processor – Socket LGA1150, 4.0Ghz, 8MB L3 Cache, 22nm

Watched 30 Rock, The Big Bang Theory twice, watched all the Marvel movies and Agents of Shield (which is an awesome show, btw!) in chronological order. Rewatching Battlestar Galactica. The first episode is so dark…so many people die!

There are some books I want to read: The Art of War by Sun Tzu, Ready Player One, and Eleven Rings by Phil Jackson.

Last but certainly not least – I got a dog on October 3rd (born July 31st, 2014). His name is Loki. I created a page for him here:
Like the page and watch his videos!

He’s been a joy in my life and a test in patience – but I absolutely love him and one of the best things in my day are coming home to a puppy that is just so happy and excited to see you.

These are all the same dog, just taken at different points throughout the last 3.5 months. He’s grown / changed so much in a few months!

Blogging is definitely more difficult for me lately – I feel that I just don’t have any time….*sigh*
