I am determined not to let this blog sit too idle. Sorry to those that might actually be interested in reading this for not posting more often.
Let’s just say that I’ve been “cruising” through life since my last post. It’s a habit of mine to just coast for a bit after the holidays. I don’t know that it’s a good habit, but… I don’t know that it’s a bad habit, either. I’m not always “productive”. And while a feel some guilt – sometimes – for not being productive (outside of going to work daily), I don’t feel that guilty. Yes, time flies and all that, but I don’t consider it a bad thing to just exist now and then.
I guess I haven’t been too idle, though. My sim racing hobby has been a bit more in my focus since the holidays. I joined the Pacific Majors league again this year. It’s a pretty cool league. It’s not without its drama and bullsh!t, but I enjoy it. We get to run in different types of races with different types of cars, so it is quite interesting having to learn the different race disciplines.
This next Sunday (2/26/17) I get to race in the Pacific Majors’ version of the Daytona 500. I’m looking forward to it. For some reason, I really like the restrictor plate racing, especially since I’ve had the opportunity to participate in it rather than just watching it on TV. It’s very intense trying to keep the car under control in a group of cars going ~200mph and only being inches apart. So much concentration is required… very intense 😀
I’ve been on “TV”, too… well YouTube. The Pac Majors league has the top 2 splits of these races streamed/broadcasted live by professional streamers. It’s kind of cool being able to go back and watch the race you were just in, and possibly seeing yourself (well, your car) and having your name mentioned. I just wish my name was mentioned more often for being fast and making it to the front versus getting into wrecks 😳 That’s something I need to work on a bit Come watch a stream anyway, especially if you like auto racing. I’ll try to post the different YouTube channels where the streams will be.
Other than that… well… like I said, I’ve just been moseying through life since the first of the year. I think I’ll be getting more active on here again, though. It might be more about my sim racing stuff, but it will be something.
As always, let me know what you think. Ask me questions. Ask me to write about something. This blog does not have to be a one-way thing. I would very much enjoy hearing back from readers.
