Spent most of the day wanting to curl up and go back to sleep, but got into the swing of things… by nightfall.
Filled out new spreadsheets for SSE. Tried to animate an SVG hexagon. Didn’t work out. Traced a Griffon screencap and added a balloon. Because reasons.
Planning to take in my resume tomorrow for live crit.
Tried Black Liquorice for my first time. Was given to me by an acquaintance who usually works one of the shops I tend to buy snacks from every 2-4 days. He got it from someone else. The feel was akin to that of mouthwash, but the taste reminded me of black jellybeans, rootbeer, and salt. It was interesting. The one I had was shaped vaguely like a curved fish. Was offered one that came in the shape of an *, but my teeth were kinda hurting from the first candy, so I declined. It was an interesting experience.
Heading back to residence halls first thing tomorrow morning. Spent all day working on the game tentatively titled Resonance Reaper https://github.com/TeamNoContest/ResonanceReaper and filling out more documentation for Stable45 http://retl.github.io/stable45/ . If I have enough time, I might have to scramble to make a dev-diary for TheSeasHaveEyes before leaving for dorms but immediately after waking up. Or I can sit on my haunches and hope my team member makes that up.
I talked up a case for buying pizzas so we’d have something to eat for the weekend. Aaaand after going through with it, we ended up spending $30 or what was completely consumed within minutes. So I feel like I picked it all wrong. And apparently my mother’s sugar level had dropped down to around 54. Seems like she was mistaking the breakfast she had yesterday for breakfast she had today. Tried to talk [family member] out of throwing a fit because reasons. Which just made her throw a fit about me talking to her. My right hand hurts. I think I’ve played too much Awesomenauts and may have carpel tunnel syndrome or something going on.
On the other hoof, I drew some stuff. http://sta.sh/2k9ffob9m3l
Learned about http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maltesers for my first time. Added author’s note to B fic from yesterday. Played a LOT of Awesomenauts. Played with 3D Ponymaker and Inkscape.
IRC was unusually quiet for the majority of the day today until late night. Making progress in a FoE Reread. Just now finishing the Shadow of the Ministries massivehuge chapter.
Ran out of TV dinners and hotdogs and whatnot in the fridge for the week’s stay. Need to go shopping for more food at some point. I miss having my meal-plan on-campus. Kinda wish I had bothered to learn to cook.
Had fish for dinner actually, not lunch. Fic has been finished and revised. You can read it early here or you can wait for the full compilation to be complete (it’s about 23/26ish done).
It was PnP day. We found New Unicornia. Getting the ‘free night’s stay’ treatment. It’s obviously going to end in plot progression.
Rough-drafted a fic. Drew a thing. Played some games. Learned the procedure for blood-sugar testing with the lancet and test machine.
My mother fell again. While trying to get icecream. Again. But I helped her get back up and it was OK. PnP day tomorrow. DST starts on Sunday.
Just watched first two seasons of Gregory Horror Show. It was goofy and surreal and mindscrewy and kinda fun and not very scary at all. Also wrote 500 more words into my fic. Slow progress, but some. And talked with mother.
Back with the family. Love having my soft bed again. Don’t miss a certain trouble-causing family member and her drama-baiting. Glad to see mother again, but worried. Walked in on her kinda half in the fridge and struggling to fix icecream. Played tons of Awesomenauts. At Pres9 Level 80ish. Could Pres10 by tomorrow.
There were Mardi Gras balloons everywhere yesterday. Very pretty. More balloons of some other kind today. Also had tacos today. Put in application for a job. Working on learning JQuery during the ‘spring break’ between continuing projects. Staying with family for the week.
