About two weekends ago, I met up with JLau in LA. It's always good to see him and catch up, not just because he's a lot of fun, but because he's always doing something different with his life, and its real interesting to see what his next move is. The typical person might just work the same job day in and day out, take a few vacations, do a few activities and have fun day to day, but Jlau has these bigger plans where he'd move to some other country for a couple years, work in a different industry, travel the world on a whim, I mean, lifestyle changes that seem to only happen in books. But most importantly, I'll have a place to stay in London in 2013. Thanks man!

This past weekend I went skydiving! I remember Cliff was trying to convince me Junior Year to go when they had a groupon for skydiving, and I was too afraid to do it, but when they got back and everyone said it was so much fun, I was like "ah damnit I shoulda went". So I'm glad I finally went, and it's pretty freakin awesome. I'd do it again if I can get it cheaper.

My typical day now is boring as hell. From 8-5, I'm learning the Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR). Here's a tiny excerpt:

1.000 Scope of part.

This part sets forth basic policies and general information about the Federal Acquisition Regulations System including purpose, authority, applicability, issuance, arrangement, numbering, dissemination, implementation, supplementation,
maintenance, administration, and deviation. Subparts 1.2, 1.3, and 1.4 prescribe administrative procedures for maintaining the FAR System.

Subpart 1.1—Purpose, Authority, Issuance

1.101 Purpose.
The Federal Acquisition Regulations System is established for the codification and publication of uniform policies and procedures for acquisition by all executive agencies. The Federal Acquisition Regulations System consists of the Federal
Acquisition Regulation (FAR), which is the primary document, and agency acquisition regulations that implement or supplement the FAR. The FAR System does not include internal agency guidance of the type described in 1.301(a)(2).

It's 2000 pages, and I have four weeks of it.

  1. Basically, the whole 2 paragraphs just say: The FAR is a list of rules for how the government gets land, and the next 2,000 pages describe the rules covering all the aspects of that process.

    Only, they make it long, and complicated, and boring. Your life from 8-5 really does suck. I'm surprised you don't fall asleep!!! BUT . . . your day ends at 5! Do you know how lucky you are. Its summer, you've got 3.5 good hours left of sun when you get done to hit up the beach, and many more after that to hit up the bars!!!! You should bring your book to Yosemite. You can get through like 200 pages in the care I'm sure! If you read aloud, it will help me with my nap :)
