Personal Musings: 2/24/12…

Hmm, four days…

Real life likes to ruin best laid plans heh.  Like having semi-daily postings on my blog.  Four days?  Derp.  Granted, there was that rather big post about Mass Effect 3 again.  The controversy over it still reigns on.  As well as it should.  I’ve seen the counter-posting by Bioware’s PR team and really….its a PR post.  Honestly, I’m getting really tired of PR-postings by companies, they all sound the same and are really starting to say the same thing.  Anyway, I don’t really want to talk about it. I talked it about it enough in the previous posting.  I might discuss it in another posting if things develop further along.  Sadly, I just see Bioware sticking to their guns at this point and expecting everyone to live with it.

So let’s see, what happened the past several days…I went to a charity drive function in my hometown and they raised over $180,000 which shocks me because when I was there, we barely managed $80,000.  And we’re in a recession right now.  Just makes me wonder where all that money is coming from.  Other than that, before today it was mostly just focused on homework stuffs.  Nothing particularly exciting.  Oh, my friend Dangelus launched a new blog about technology here: http://www.dangelus.com/teknocratik/.  I like what he’s started and I’ll be interested in seeing what he does with it :).  Oh and my friend Moonshinefox just posted the last video of his Dwarf Fortress: Splashedpost series.  I haven’t watched it yet as of this writing, but now I’m curious to see what he’s doing next with DF, he hasn’t told me.  Yet.

Today I’ve been combating an annoying cold along with a sore throat.  Makes sneezing really painful, let me tell you.  Didn’t need to get sick right now, but I guess its better than getting a flu which would have left me in bed for a week sicker than a dog.  And that would have hurt my college schedule something bad.  Just would not need that.  So I’m glad its something so minor.  Also been massively catching up on podcasts between studying/classes and am down to three.  So we’ll see about adding a few new ones.

Despite being sick, I did try looking into a job opportunity in person but…we’ll see.  Dropped off an application and I just can’t tell at this point.  And its frustrating me how difficult finding another job has been.  I have no idea how to do any better right now, there is just nothing.  Moving forward as best I can.  Though this illness is going to keep me from doing it in-person for a little while, unless I hear about an actual job opening, then I’ll do it in person.  Otherwise…

My coding experience with Javascript went pretty well…its way too early to say whether or not I’ll actually like javascript but, except for a few frustrating parts, it wasn’t so bad.  So that’s something, I hope.  Idk, I feel excessively giddy about programming a page to report the time and day of the week when you visit the website.  It even greets you “correctly” (when you enter your name in) and that just seems cool to me.  Yea, yea, go laugh at me you programming nerds.  ;).  But it was actually nice to figure it out…

Nothing to report on gaming-wise, been too busy to do anything but do some sniper-shots in Section 8.  But that’s just how life is.  Writing reviews has also been hit and miss, idk, I’ll figure it out.  Homework/Job hunting really ruins that sometimes.  I think I’ll be posting a Podcast-review before another game though.  I figured out an entirely different format from videogame reviews for podcasting that should be interesting.  But I had to, because podcasts are weird to review since they are (usually) constantly producing content and thus changing over time.

Hmm, my illness is clearly messing with my head, if this post makes any sense, great.  Otherwise, I think I need some sleep.  See you tomorrow!
