2014 State Indoor Target Archery Championships

Tuesday, January 7, 2014

I participated in my first official archery competition this weekend in Tulare, CA at the 2014 State Indoor Target Archery Championships. The competition consisted of four 300 rounds (120 arrows), and I was shooting for 920/1200 for an average of 230/300. I ended up scoring 917, which is close enough for me. I even ended…

As I’m sure all my friends on Facebook/Instagram/Twitter know, I’ve recently gotten into archery. No, not because of the Hunger Games – I’ve actually always been sort of fascinated by archery. I was really into Robin Hood when I was younger, and usually when I play a video game I choose the character with the…

Living Room

Monday, February 4, 2013

Just in case you hadn’t heard, I bought a town home in September of last year, and officially moved in October. It’s out in Orange, in a little community called the Chapman Townhomes. It’s been a great community so far, and the HOA is a bit steeper than I wanted, but hey, I got a…

Way back in March, I finally traveled out to visit some friends who had moved out of state. My first stop was Austin, TX, to stay with Patrick and Linh who I’ve known since high school. This was my first time in Austin, and it’s a nice little city. Felt like it had a good…

The Craft

Thursday, March 15, 2012

Finally got around to reading Slate’s article (via kottke) on “The Greatest Paper Map of the United States You’ll Ever See.” Essentially instead of having a computer write out all the city names and state borders and rivers etc, David Imus did it by hand. By contrast, David Imus worked alone on his map seven…

Boys’ Socks

Friday, February 17, 2012

I have size eight feet. That means dress socks fit fine, but when it comes to white athletic socks, I have to buy boys’ socks. And yes, I always feel so creepy when I go buy them. I have to look around and hope that nobody else is in the tiny aisle buying socks too….

Maxing out Dropbox

Wednesday, February 8, 2012

I managed to max out my Dropbox referrals in three days, following this Lifehacker article on using Google Adwords to your advantage. For those of you who don’t use it yet, Dropbox provides you with 2GB of free cloud storage, so you an access your files from pretty much anywhere. It’s web-based and has applications…

I’m addicted to my iPhone

Tuesday, January 31, 2012

The guy who everyone assumed would have an iPhone (that’s me) finally got an iPhone. It’s been just over three months since I first got it, and I thought it’d be good to write up some thoughts and impressions on the iPhone, since this is my very first smartphone. Nokia, you served me well Comparison…

Best of Tumblr 2011 (Part 4)

Wednesday, January 25, 2012

And here’s the last. I’ve realized I should probably have called this series, “Eric’s Favorites from his Tumblr” since some people seem to think my choies are questionable. Well go make your own website then and post your favorites. Hmph. To Kanye Raynell gets eager on Jeopardy Mark Hamill’s interpretation of the Joker Nightmares Fear…

Best of Tumblr 2011 (Part 1)

Monday, January 16, 2012

I thought about doing a “Best of my Tumblr posts” last year but got lazy. This year I did the work. Sort of. I think I mostly ended up picking the funniest ones, but that’s really most of what I post anyway. I whittled the list down to something like 40, so I’ll be presenting…

Brand New and Exciting for the New Year

Wednesday, January 4, 2012

It’s that time again. A whopping three entries were posted on my blog last year, and there’s nothing like a redesigned website to get me posting more regularly again. New and exciting, I wish you lasted much longer. Honestly though, towards the latter half of 2011 I wanted to start posting photos again and just…
