Beginnings of the Wayward Programmer

6 months later and I'm back

Posted by , 18 April 2005 - - - - - - · 179 views

I have the worst procrastination-itis in the world. I have 4 papers due on the 24th and I haven't started any of them yet. [flaming] I suck. I went into some sort of slump, which happens every semester. Now I can't get out of it. Anyway, hopefully I'll get enough gumption to hurry and finish. Geez. Me.

In other news, I passed my second test in my Hung Fut Kung Fu training. I've done Basics, and Adult Short Form. I'm quite sure what the next form is, but I'm excited. Unfortunately, there never seems to be enough time in the day.

Another thing I want to do is get some people who are interested in Dreamcast programming together and tinker with it alot. Hopefully we'll get 4 or 5 people and see what happens.

Well that's all for now. See you again in 6 months [smile]

Another Day... another tribulation

Well after 3 months (on and off) of Hung-Fot Kung-Fu training, I'm going for my basics test. My flexiblity is still horrible but hopefully I'll be able to work on that during the Christmas break. Also I got two wonderful new books: Data Strucutures for Game Programmers and Tricks of the (Actual) 3D Game Programming Gurus. The latter is massive and very intimidating. I won't be reading that book until after I finish Tricks of the Windows Game Programming Gurus and Data Structures for Game Programmers books.

During my Winter Break, Japanese will be my language of choice. I'm still having trouble memorizing the hiragana. I only (barely) remember 30 of the 45 characters. Oy!

And I'm finally finalizing my plans to move out! Woot!! Now I just need to save up enough money and not get sick again, so I can do it.


Rejoining Mental and Physical Activity

As most will be able to see, I tend to use the Yin/Yang symbol. I think it's appropriate seeing that I'm taking Hung Fut Kung-Fu, a derivative of Shaolin Kung-Fu. I hope I'm able to balance, if not juggle, 15 credits, learning game programming from Tricks of the Windows Game Programming Gurus, and Kung-Fu. Oy! Nothing would be more satisfying then being able to accomplish all things this semester.

As of now, my Kung-Fu is hindered by my lack of flexibility (emphasis on lack) and WGP will not see any progress from me until I properly figured that damned resource editing. I forgot to mention I'm trying to get the basics of OpenGL down as well. So yes, I'm certifiable and no, I can't split in three much less two. My OpenGL learning is just hindered by time and a need to sleep and get to work on time (hee hee, forgot to mention that as well).

Oh well, hopefully everything will smoothly work itself out as the semester progressing. If not, it'll be time to set the priorities (which have already been done) and implement the strategy.

/me sighs heavily

Pray for meh!
