Month: August 2016

The End of August

I did it. I don’t know if I liked the quality of this month of writing but I managed it. Thousands of words, a few dozen pages worth. Not bad, feels nice. I think I’m going to try again next month. See if I can get into a flow of things. I know that I need some kind of rhythm in my life and I also know that it won’t come on its own. It’ll be up to me to really work it all o...[Read More]

Early Thoughts | World of Warcraft : Legion

Life is a little bit rough for me at the moment. But I did want to talk briefly on my thoughts about the Legion Pre-Patch Event and the game thus far. The Event leading up to the launch was great! The story goes that the Legion is finally done screwing around elsewhere and has come to finally take down Azeroth. In the past we pissed off a few of the lesser Legion leaders, which is to say some big ...[Read More]

Being 30 ~ Day 1

The title seems to suggest there will be more parts to this great tale. But I don’t think that there will be. And you could argue that it is indeed the 28th that is my 1st day of being 30 and not the 29th. But I don’t know about that. I like to think of the birthday as your final shining moment before the next year begins. Ironically I’m writing this in the long forgotten future ...[Read More]

The Big Day (30th Birthday)

I don’t know how I really felt about my Birthday this year. There was a funny constant in my life once my family got a little bigger. Every single year on Christmas my dad would get angry about something. The ones I remember the best were with me. I remember being upset one year and I didn’t want to talk. So I wrote my replies down. He threw the notebook at me. This isn’t a criti...[Read More]

Anxiety the Vampire

It’s funny, I didn’t yet know it when this day happened but I have since found a place to live. I’ll write about it more on the 31st post. But regardless of that good news I still feel a great tightening in my chest. It’s a strange feeling, anxiety, and its not something that has plagued me all year. That’s more than I can say for a lot of the last ten, but certainly ...[Read More]

Thoughts on: Magic Duels

I never really played Magic The Gathering, as insistently as some of my friends talked about it. Well a few weeks ago Rico and TheBlondeBass were talking about the game and recently added lovecraftian horrors-something of which I have a special place in my heart. Well some of the card designs sold me, and they pointed me to the computer version of the game-Magic Duels which is free to play which i...[Read More]

The Precipice of Robotics and Humanity

The future of the economy is going to be shaped in our lifetime. I’ve read about this numerous times, as you likely have, but a blogger at Medium covers it in more detail. It being the very real moment coming soon where robotics will be cheaper than people for just about anything. And I’m not just talking engineering either, even things thought of uniquely human as teaching, and obviou...[Read More]

The Real World Equivalent to No Man’s Sky

Traveling through space has always been a dream of mine. It’s partly why I have relatively positive feelings towards No Man’s Sky. I can’t quite explain it sometimes, there is something about that game that just kind of speaks to me. Like Asimov’s Foundation Series, it reminds me of the bleakness of space. It’s this infinite cosmos that is full of both beauty and rele...[Read More]

25 Years

I spoke with my sister last night. Situations this month lead to the event transpiring. She brought up a point I hadn’t even contemplated before. We haven’t seen one another in 25 years. Well, specifically, she said she hasn’t seen me since I was 5. So much has changed since then. I’ve been so many places, seen so many things. I’ve both elated and infuriated so many people. Unless CRISPR really ta...[Read More]

The LA Haze

I’ve mentioned it before but I don’t think I’ll ever understand this city. It’s 10 am and a thick haze creeps across the top of it. Buildings yellow and the ground is slightly dirty from the ever present dust. LA feels to me like an abandoned city and yet it is full of people. This is a far cry from the beautiful upkeep of somewhere like Hiroshima. The traffic is choking; even short drives often t...[Read More]

Goals and Goalies

I don’t know if this will be posted on the proper day. It can be difficult to keep track when you are writing offline. I had a goal this month that I would try to brighten my days. Get back to living the relaxed life. And yet it feels like that was just not meant to be. This, the last month of my twenties, has been one of the worst in recent memory. Bad news, worse news, and startling life events ...[Read More]
