What have I been up to?

It has been a long time since I have made a personal post on here, but after finally finishing a task that has taken me 2 years (Thanks Covid19), I figured I would make a post about my adventure.

The featured image should give it away… Maybe not… if you are not from Quebec, you might mistake this for a regular censored photo of a Drivers License, you would be partially correct.  So for those from my home province, and others outside of La Belle Province, I will explain this little gem, and the journey I took to get it which started in early 2019.…
