2012 brings new things to discover as well as uncertainty about the future. It also brings more of that 2012 doomsday BS that has been running rampant the past few years, despite common sense and scientists actually proving that the predicted Mayan doomsday will not happen! But that still doesn't stop idiots like Discovery Channel, History Channel, Patrick Geryl and other morons from continuing to shove their doomsday shows and books down our throats!

Since the world will end in 356 days from now (we are in a leap year, so we have the 29th of February), I've decided to have my own fun with this "phenomenon". Don't worry, I'm not going to talk about how the earth will suddenly reverse its magnetic fields or anything like that. I lack the intelligence to make sense of that stuff.

The reason for this title if I'm not going to talk about 2012? A certain 80's song that critics think is probably the worst song in history.

This is going to take some getting used to.

Whenever you get a new piece of technology, you'll spend a lot of time getting used to how it works. A computer, MP3 player, video game system and so on. And thanks to my Christmas money and an impulse buying trait, I'm now in that same boat tonight.

After a few years of thinking about and major indecision (seeing Sigmoni's last few blog entries helped), I finally went ahead and bought myself a computer drawing tablet.

I bought a DigiPro WP5540 5x4" USB Graphics Tablet w/Black Cordless Pen. I got it for a very good price. It's not a Wacom, which is better, but this is a good one for the price I paid. I'm thinking about using it on my XP computer only because everything is closer to me than my setup with my Vista computer in my room. I use a wireless keyboard and mouse because the PC is at the back of my room and is connected to my TV. So, I have to use a wireless mouse and keyboard. Plus, all my usual USB ports are all used up on my Vista computer.

I put in the drivers and everything already and I only fooled around with it for a little bit. I can tell you right now that using this thing will take some time. The pen acts like a mouse as well and the working area is like my screen. The working area is also small so I have to use fine movements when using it.

This will be a totally different experience for me.
