I haven’t done a general ‘This is how my day went, this is how I feel’ posting in awhile, just little notes about SN’s progress. Time to amend that.
I have been a busy little bastard lately. But that’s okay; I prefer being busy to wasting time (“Wasting Time” being defined as anything that doesn’t have a productive end result of some sort). There’s my job, yes… although that’s only been so-so lately. The work is more annoying than challenging. And to tell the truth, I actually don’t like challenging work, which is weird since I like to constantly be doing something… so I suppose it’s ‘worst of both worlds’.
But when I get home, I’ve got plenty to do. Sailor Nothing, obviously. I don’t work on this very often; maybe an hour here or there, but it seems to be the kind of story where an hour is enough time to get a pretty major update (2-3 scenes) out there.
My other big project is my programming on PheonixMUCK. I believe I mentioned my MU* work before… I’m trying to simulate real life things via the text interface. I have a full arcade coded with Dance Dance Revolution, WipeOut, a fighting game, skeeball, a UFO catcher with prize database, etc. But right now my focus is on a television network; 24/7, on the air. Whenever I don’t have real live people in the studio putting on a show, I have AI driven TV talk shows and infomercials and some movie scripts running. Whee! Lots of work, but damn if it’s not cool.
Then there’s the usual socializing. I’m not a total workaholic; I like to set aside time every weekend to drop by Bijoux Josh and enjoy DVD movies on his nine foot tall projection screen TV. Plus every now and then during the week the guys will stop over to watch wrestling, or Jen will drop by to help with some project. Yesterday she tricked out my import DDR mat so it’d be ready to go for the thursday DDR USA PSX release. Woohoo!
Emotionally… I guess it’s a comfortable middle ground. I’m keeping busy and I’m not depressed, but I’m not euphoric either. It’s a way to pass the time and things could be worse even if they’re not particularly amazing. I do wish I had more time for my friends, for RPing on Pheonix/Nightscape or for chatting on IRC/ICQ, but… I dunno. I seem comfy with flying solo most of the time lately. I’ll feel the urge to rejoin online society eventually, stuff like this comes and goes in phases.
And… that’s all. Thanks for your time. ^_^
