Vacations, Videos, Vegetarians, and... Formatting

I haven’t had time to play video games lately because of school and YouTube. Other than their redesigns late last year, DJHicks.net and Gnarkiller.com have been neglected too. Hopefully I can catch up on some stuff when my final semester is complete in May. Then of course, I’ll have to restart my career. But that will be a welcome change. I would love to edit video for a living. This would likely require a relocation. The west coast could open up fantastic opportunities. If we stay in this town however, the job will probably be some form of IT management. I’m quite eager to do either at this point.

Since I last wrote a blog… Wow. It has been almost one year and one month to the day. Anyway, my YouTube channel has grown a lot. So much so that I had to upgrade the hardware and software I use to edit. The additional power and features have significantly sped up the overall process allowing me to create a higher quality product with less hassle.

I studied abroad in Peru a few weeks ago and it was truly an enlightening experience. A blog about the trip is forthcoming in the form of a bulleted journal, which was a requirement of the class. Between my DSLR and phone I took around 4500 pictures over the 10 day expedition. I’m a little over halfway through the filtering process because school has kept me super busy since I got back. When the collection is complete I’ll upload them here.

Jennifer and I spent Christmas in New York City. That was awesome too. It was the longest vacation we’ve been able to take since our honeymoon four years ago. We ate a lot and basically just explored Manhattan. The Statue of Liberty was closed because of hurricane Sandy's damage, but I was able to get some quality shots from Battery Park. I’m going to try to upload those pictures today if I can finish editing one of the videos from Peru.

Speaking of eating, I quit eating meat and fast food on the first of January. This was partially due to a corny yet depressing documentary called Vegucated. I also need to eliminate some excess weight. After losing 70 pounds in 2011, my best friend opened a restaurant in 2012. I ate multiple meals there almost every day he was open. The result was me re-fatting 38 or so pounds. By adopting only a change in diet and little to no exercise, I have lost 16 pounds as of right now. That’s a pretty easy weight loss plan. Sometimes finding food is inconvenient because meat is so culturally dominant, but I honestly do not miss eating that delicious life shortening food.

In closing, the formatting of my websites, mainly blogs and reviews, is kind off. This was caused by the redesigns late last year. Everything is simpler and less cluttered, but image placements and font sizes look crazy on some articles. Since hundreds of pages were affected and I have limited free time at the moment, I am not going to track down and reformat each individual item. Starting with this entry and yesterday’s blog on Gnarkiller.com things should look normal.
