I just had the fucking weirdest dream. It started out where I was in the middle of interviewing for Google.
I was in an orientation room with a whole bunch of people and a small group of employees were giving a presentation about interview tips. ...

Work is shitty this week and I got into a fight when biking home because some guy passed me so close he almost side swiped me. Anyway that has nothing to do with game programming. I need to fucking quit my job. >:(...

I finished the arc this weekend. I did all that modification to the BuilderScene to load and save stuff to text files. I added in a Tilemap in MegamanScene and deserialize it. I also pasted a scaled background picture to give it some atmosphere....

I made some more code to create a flash notification that goes away when you click off of it and a textbox that you can type things into. I'm revealing a lot of rough edges of the codebase that I have right now which is kind of demotivating but al...

I gathered like 10 garden gems along with a big ripe garden treasure. I had a few gems, a medium treasure, and a medium W hybrid from my friend that I threw in the freezer. On Sunday I made spaghetti sauce and bough ingrediants for pizza dough and...

It's coming close to when I should tear everything down. Everything is almost ready now, I'm just waiting for all the garden treasures to ripen. I did a lot of garden shit today! I'm lucky I'm in California because I can't believe how long it took...

One of my treasures was finally ripe. It looks really nice on the plant.
I picked it today and it turns out to have blossom end rot. :(
It tasted okay.
It's very sweet, probably from the epsom salt and stuff. Needs more in the meaty d...

My watermelon broke off the vine yesterday!
It's slightly smaller than a softball, but also lopsided. I'm not too broken up about it though because it didn't seem like it was going to grow big or finish in time. The internet says you can't ...
Bad Blood: Secrets and Lies in a Silicon Valley Startup
I didn't know that Theranos was so fucking crazy. Just from casually listening to the news I thought it was just some girl who bit off more than she could chew and then started lying. No, this is the Final Fantasy 7 house of silicon valley start ups. I was captivated by this guys book the whole way through. I thought 350 pages would be long but it flew by. Also the stereotype pairing of young girl engineer and creepy piece.of shit incompetent old guy is really common in Silicon Valley. It's the worst. I need to get out of here.

12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos
This book is life anecdotes backed up with psychology for how to become an enlightened person. He also really likes the Bible. (Belief not necessary to enjoy the book). I think he has some interesting points but I disagree on a couple things, for instance when he says it's completely unreasonable to not want to have kids or that "striving the maximum good for most people" is specific enough to let you figure out what you should do in a day. I learned a lot of cool things about lobsters though.

Small Business For Dummies
I found this on a table at work and it was from 1998 which is funny because computers and the internet were super new back then. This is an overview for someone who has no clue how to start a business

Web Client Programming with Perl
This is a basic and outdated book but it's good for learning about perl and html request interactions. It's another textbook though so that was kind of boring to read.
