Yukoshoo's Blog of Things


Over a year has passed since my last post and I have thought about it regularly. I have wanted to post something but I couldn’t really think of anything to say. Over the last year I have worked on a couple things in Unity and worked on projects others have created that are open source for personal use. I haven’t done work on any of the programs I had as I got tired of the learning for the moment, and I would need to install an IDE again anyways.

I have watched several shows, some from episode one to their series finale. I took and passed the class for getting a motorcycle endorsement, then bought a motorcycle, but that was at the end of the season so I didn’t get much riding until this year. I completed a few games and enjoyed all of them.

There is all the political stuff that has happened, and continues to happen, around the United States president. The multiple mass shootings.

I made a friend through work, and now they are moving away after only a few months even being in this state. The future plans were nice with this person as he also rode a motorcycle, although sold it last year to get a new one, but as he is moving several states away, that isn’t happening. I fell over four times on my bike, all at low speed. One fall was because I had zero throttle and just stopped and fell over when turning, and as it was my first fall, I didn’t have any idea how to pick up the bike, but someone drove by and helped.

I had 2 friends decide to completely and suddenly stop talking to me, after a year I started talking to one again, although few words have been shared for a while now. The other was only a few months and we talk almost daily like we used to. Both were because of politics, one was partially my attitude about mostly everything else.

I still have yet to get into any romantic relationship, which is becoming a problem, depending on who you ask. I think I broke a bone in my foot a few months ago, but never actually went and found out, eventually it stopped hurting, but recently it has been pain all the time with no OTC pain relievers working at even short term safe dosage, very much above recommended dosage for sure.

A medical thing that at least two relatives have, one direct, had started not too many years ago in me, and continues to progress. It is mostly benign but is something that will eventually be an every day issue if I don’t get it taken care of, since it began at a much younger age than for them, almost twenty years earlier or more.

Maybe it won’t be another year before I make a new post.

Time Wasting

Occasionally I will decide I want to start working on a project, either because of boredom or learning, that involves something I have little or no experience in. These are almost always something related to software. My last project was working with Unreal Engine 4 and porting content over from an older version, but it did no go so well. There is a high chance that I am just too lazy on learning proper workflow to use UE4, so I had a tough time getting anything done, especially since the models and geometry I was working with was not at all ready to be used in the engine but I was trying to do it anyways.

I ended up switching to using Unity, which has shown me why there are so many shitty games made with the engine, it is very easy to half ass everything and still get results, make progress. So far I have been able to import a lot of level geometry and get it sort of looking like it is supposed to, but the textures and shaders were not made with the tech we have now in mind, so things are looking very flat, or too bright or dark.

In the end I will abandon this before getting any real work done on it, as I have done with most of these that I have started. I had some programs that I was creating for some simple things and those haven’t been touched for months now. I have done editing and translating on some text based rpg’s and things and never actually finished all of what I originally intended to. I have spent time changing and editing scripts in multiple languages for games that its available but never published because again, it wasn’t finished.

Perpetually working on things but not finishing.


So here is the start of a blog, very unceremoniously. Sometimes things might be a stream of consciousness, sometimes they may end up just being ranting about things, but it will be me. Who knows, this may end up being the only post ever, left to sit here gathering internet dust in the annals of the internet, to be found by some alien in the past using their future space technology to recover our primitive musings.

As a start to this, here are some things about me, in lovely lazy comma list format.
Male, outspoken, hates bad puns, makes bad puns, single, politically confused, dabbler in many things, casually hardcore gamer, music lover of some genres, have unsuccessfully ran 4 forums, rare Twitch streamer.

I have no background in writing, and through high school I did as little as was required, of course leading to a failed class. Don’t be expecting this to be well written and all grammatically correct like, but do expect spelling to be spot on, thanks to the wonders of technology.
