It is 8:23 PM on Thursday, May 31st. The sun is setting on the ocean horizon just out of my view behind the trees. It is this time of year that my kids tell me it is not yet bedtime as the sun is still visible. Smart little guys.
Another sunset, another month comes to a close. What year is it? 2018 already? Looking at the monthly drop down of this blog and seeing so many years brings a sobering reminder that life goes quickly and we should appreciate it. I clicked on a few of those months and read a few posts from years back. I simply cannot believe so much time has passed and before I know it I may be reading this post far in the future having the same thoughts.
The time is 4:58 on Sunday May 27th, 2018. I had a few thoughts running through my mind and wanted to get them down.
I am worried about Artificial Intelligence. To say it outright like that might make one seem like a paranoid conspiracy theorist to the mainstream public. What I’ve come to understand however is that the “mainstream public” is pretty dumb so who cares what it thinks. It is better to listen to people like Steven Hawking and Elon Musk who share these concerns about AI.

It is 2:37 on Saturday May 26th, 2018. Today is my 41st birthday.
I woke up around 5:30 AM and did my morning routine: put away the dishes and clean any that hadn’t been done, make the coffee and drink my vegetable juice. Once everyone was awake I got started on cleaning the four fish tanks. They were a bit overdue and I just wanted to get it done since it takes about two hours and I wouldn’t want to do it later in the day. After that it was clean up more dishes from breakfast and then off to karate. I came back home, took a nap and then received a call from my parents.
It is 8:48 PM on the night before my birthday. The weather has been foggy and we’ve even had a bit of rain recently. I feel as though I’ve been in a bit of a fog myself recently with the big change going on in my life. Next week is my last week working for my current company and then I jump right back in to the next adventure.
I’ve written quite a bit about this new show Cobra Kai in the past couple of posts but thought it deserved it’s own post. Cobra Kai is a new series on YouTube Red which continues the Karate Kid saga of the ’80s but from Johnny’s point of view and it is completely awesome. I watched the whole series in two days and it really had a profound effect on me.
