Summa Summa Summa Tiiiiiime (Summer Time)

What I've been up to:
-Got a job doing graphic design/3D-type things (hurray---no more job searches. I was going crazy). Learning a new program called Cinema 4D. Similar to 3DS Max and Maya but it's a matter of learning the placement of the buttons and what not.
-I have a desk which is new. I personalized it with some sexy action figures (a dreadlocked penguin and a cactus dog w/ a soccer ball).
-I need more polo shirts

Managing my time will be a massive challenge. I also need to come up with a stricter way to manage funds. Between Manny (the car my sister passed on to me) and my poor eating habits, I'll need to be more militant about what I spend. I want to make sure I'm paying back loans and all of that good stuff! So, I'll need a:

1) Planner (a notebook will do for now). Maybe one for money and another for time. Tempted to use the Calendar feature on Google but maybe it's a bit weird to put monetary stuff online. I mean, the government probably already knows way more about me than I'd like but it's best to make them work for it, lest they think I'm easy or something. :|

2) Budget: I have a loose idea of what I'll be making and my biggest vices are:
 a) Food (particularly junk food although I am collecting pizza boxes to make this--samurai armor <3)
 b) Video Games (but rarely nowadays--I mostly spend more money on food.)

I guess I should keep track of what I buy---look at bank statements online and get to know my vices and whittle them down to size.

-Excited for some friends that are coming over---three peeps that I made good friends with online. Need a vacuum cleaner to get the stink of bachelor out (just cleaned out the bathtub today. My sister would be so proud! :D )
-Ants. Everywhere. Well, just on my computer table in the living room (I dislike when they crawl up on my screen while I'm working). What the heckBob. And the exterminators came by last week...maybe it's the weather, I dunno. I'm not too mad---this place is significantly better than my last place. Ants > Roaches every time. Plus the staff's really kind. :)

-Finished a commission for my sis. I'm happy about it and won't post it on deviantART until the gift has been delivered!
-Working on some projects for some friends--one is video game assets and another is an animated music video (<3) with someone I wanted to work with for a whiiiiiiiiiiile. :D
-Excited for the progress of my contract home base, Terncraft Games---they're putting their noses to the grindstone and finishin' up their latest game! Even though I had nothing to do with it, it looks really good and has a lot of potential!

-Visit penguins in their natural habitat
-Go to a game conference
-Get a web comic up and going
-Use my art spectacularly for God's kingdom
-Make a successfully innovative indie game <3
-Build a robot
-Attend a cheese and wine party
-Meet a lot of my online friends!
-Learn some freakin' Flash already! >_<
-Something else
