A long day

Well today has been a long day. I got up at 5 am to go to work at 6am. I know, I know I work from home but I can’t work in my pajamas and I can’t work without getting ready for the day. Sadly most of my day has been taken up by my “Day Job”. The rest of the time is was resting and cleaning up the house.

Though I did get some time to work on an app that I am building. It is going to require  a lot of graphic assets so that is what I am working on now. I am using a surface pro 4. Right now though I was really wishing I had a Microsoft Surface Studio for this. I normally use Apple Computers but for drawing and stuff drawing on the screen is really nice. I could go for a wacom cintiq but I really like the look of the Surface Studio. Looks like the only G4 iMac that I have always liked.

Autonomous Cars?

Today is another day. Yesterday after hours of school and working on projects I decided that I needed to get out of the house. It was raining so a bike ride was out of the question. So what I decided to do was to go for a drive. I drive a base model 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix. It has a V6 engine good for 200 HP. I live at about 4,000ft above sea level and on flat ground I can go 0-60mph in just under 7 seconds. Which isn’t bad for a four door sedan with only 200 HP.

Though I am getting off topic. The reason I brought up my car and the drive is this is something I don’t want to give up. It would be nice to have an Autonomous car to take you from point A – B without ever having to worry about getting their. It would make rush commute to longer a frustration. You could even work in your car and get paid for it. However if a car ever takes away my ability to drive it it probably won’t be a car that I will ever own.

There is something about being able to accelerate quickly. The thrill and rush of pulling out in traffic and with just the right car and not cutting the person off behind you.

I have a few dream cars and there are as follows:

  1. a Tesla sedan (the thrill of raw electric power)
  2. A Mustang or Challenger (it will probably end up being a Challenger if new)
  3. a Suburban (I want a family and there is no better car)
  4. a Truck. (you can help the neighbors)

Now a few notes on those cars:

The Tesla: this is a car I aspire too. It is something that would be really nice. If I can ever afford one it would be great. I would also like to get my parents one as well.

The Muscle Car: This is a car that will probably be the last one on this list that I get. While I will probably have the best time in this car the others are more practical

The Suburban: some say that a minivan or a crossover would be better but a suburban is a nice mean looking car. It LOOKS American.

The truck: this is something that would be really nice to have and be able to drive.

IT HAS BEEN A WHILE: UPDATE

Hello fellow people,

It has been a while since I has posted. In the past four years I have learned a foreign language and have gone back to college. I was originally studying graphic design but have recently switched over to computer science. I am not sure where I want it to go. sometimes I think I want to be an mobile developer for Android or iOS devices. Other times I want to create programs for desktop computers and other times still I want to create games.

It is actually pretty fun. Over the past few months I have created a OneNote notebook with all my ideas. I have everything from app ideas, to games,  to websites. I have even started designing these games. I am not sure when it will be able to create this. It could be years or only months. Right now they are all in the idea or design phase. Overall I have 10 projects that are in some form of development.  However I have do have some that I am looking more forward too. I have two apps that I want to get out in the next couple of years and I have a game that I can hopefully release by the year or beginning of next year.

The game is a dice game. Sorry that is all I can say now about want kind of game. At first it will only be an iOS game, however I hope to get it to run on Android, and Windows as well. And of course if I see demand for other platforms or new platforms come around I will be sure to try and get it to work on those as well.

Well it is back to work now. I hope to be able to post at least weekly. This blog will be for my ideas, thoughts, and just day to day life. I have thought about vlogging before however that is harder than it sounds. I hope to talk to you again soon.
