- Random Observation of the Day
"Mr. Madison, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."
I just feel like shit today.
I have no life. I'm probably the only senior in the state who doesn't have a drivers license. I have no girlfriend to speak of, nor does it look like I'll have one in the near future (but how would that work without a car anyway? "Hello Aubrey! These are my parents, mom and dad, don't mind them, but they'll be coming to dinner with us" or would it be like "Dinner at eight sounds great! I'll be waiting for you!")
And getting my license doesn't seem to be working. Sure, I'll have the damn thing by April, but will I actually be able to drive? Almost had an accident today, can't seem to stay on the road, damn cars.
So I just ride the bus home with all the underclassmen, and stay at home each and every day.
Which wouldn't be so bad if I had something to come home to... which I kind of do. I just play games (maplestory) all day. But I haven't programmed ANYTHING in weeks...
I went into the independant study I organized for myself for the first time today. I decided that since I couldn't get any work done at home, I'd build my own programming "course" in a constructive environment. So, I sit down at my terminal, turn it on, get comfortable.
But where the hell is my compiler? "What compiler?" No; I'm not learning C.. I'm trying to learn C++. Notepad and a linker, sadly to say, is not enough. And I know the school has MSVC6... God knows how long it will take for them to install it somewhere that isn't being used. So I just stare at the screen, no different from home.
But is this really what I want to do with my life? Stare at the screen all day, typing away in the corner of a small, dimly-lit cubical? I know, it isn't that unglamorous, but recently, I've lost all ability to .. code.
I mean, I used to breeze through the technical forums, and find at least a couple in each that I could answer. Even stuff in C++ (a still foreign language) I could figure out. I knew how to use DirectX, design games, even write them!
But then that fateful day came and my computer was crippled, deleting all my code.
So, I sent an email to my old school's administrator, telling him that I backed everything up on their servers. Well, wouldn't you know it? Something happened to their server to (apparently someone bumped it, it fell over, fizzled some stuff) and everything was gone.
So, now I'm left with no code, but thankfully I uploaded all my executables here so I have something to show.
But these days, I can't seem to figure anything out. Not in C++, not in VB6, not in anything. I've just seem to have lost the will to code, the only thing that really took the place of not having a social life.
Now I'm stuck in transition; all my college app
I don't know what the hell is wrong with me these days, but I hope that I can do something... I mean, I want to code, you know? I open up my compiler, start a new project, .. and then just stare at a blank screen. Maybe type #include
But where are the days where I could write a space invaders clone in an evening? The days of my terrain generation schemes? Where is the horse that was riding..?
You know, I really don't feel much better after writing all this. I just feel even more confused... DAMMIT!! WHY COULDN'T LIFE BE A MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTION??!
