As decidedly emo as my blog seems to have gotten recently (I hardly even realized it really), I can at least be thankful that it’s nowhere near as bad as it used to be.
Suppose I made a fb note, tagged every single one of my friends in it, and wrote “If you do not comment on this note within 5 days, I will unfriend you”. How many do you think I’d have left? What if I did it with a status update? A xanga post? (cross-posted, of course) What if I blasted a private message to everyone? What if I made a GROUP saying “If you do not join this group by xx/xx I will unfriend you”? What if I left PHONE messages on everyone’s cell phone?
I really shouldn’t have gone down this train of thought. =/
The funniest part is, back in the old golden age of Xanga (well, “golden” in a very subjective way), you used to be able to post something that said either: “Does anyone still read this?” or “I wish people would comment more often…” and you’d instantly get 5 replies within the next 24 hours. Hahaha…oh man, the irony.
Possibly the stupidest thing about insomnia at 5:00 AM is that there’s nobody else that’s awake to talk to, and no one else generating any content -anywhere- (except in asia). This is also one of the reasons why it can be good for trying to be productive, but a lot of times when I get insomnia it means I was already trying to go to sleep and I wasn’t dead tired, meaning I don’t -have- work to do. blahhhggg. And since I’ve been lying around for an hour at least, it means I don’t really have the motivation anymore to do anything worth doing.
well, ooooookay. I have a diary entry I’ve been meaning to write for a bit, so I guess I’ll just suck it up and get to it.
edit: apparently Alex Kerr is still awake =D
I have a distinct memory of being asked at some point in elementary school, what is your favorite color. I wrote, “Cyan”. It was a nice mix of green and blue, distinct from both, and I knew what it was called because I had been doing console I/O programming in pascal (that’s right, I have my own supergeek stories too!). When I got the sheet back, there was a red question mark there.
My vocab at that point was already better than that of my teachers. =DDD
Don’t remember if I posted this before, but here are some reasons why Fall quarter was pretty awesome:
“Talking on aim and watching anime vids for 2 hours instead of working? Yes!!!”
“Eating a bowl full of whipped cream? Yes!!!!!”
“Playing piano for an hour instead of working? Yes!!!”
“Typing 1,000 words worth of blog entries instead of studying for my midterm? Yes!!!!!”
“Talking to a friend on the phone for 40 mins instead of going to class? Heck yea!”
“Staying at a friend’s place until 4 AM instead of doing work? Heck yea!”
Also, I have a new quote:
“Don’t cry because it is over, smile because it happened.”
from a Hello Kitty pen! You can find little bits of happiness in the most surprising places…
And, here are some other quotes from the past quarter:
imiganai: you are not a terminal
DDRKirbyISQ: EVERYONE AROUND ME HAS GERMS
imiganai: that’s okay!
imiganai: germs are defeatable
imiganai: it’s the viruses that suck
DDRKirbyISQ: my resists suck
Ray Ayanami: “Vegeta, what does the scouter say about next semester’s tuition?”
Muf Unyo: …Do nasal tampons exist?
Andrea Sy: be naughtyyy
Andrea Sy: BE NAUGHTYYYY BABYYYY

and here’s the ever-popular “Starcraft korean commentary” quote:
Here’s what an average game sounds like to a chobo non-korean’s ears:

Aaaand here’s some quotes from my mom this year:
6/12/09: “How come my butt is broken? …has it always been that way and I just haven’t noticed?”
6/30/09: “My butt is gone.”
8/8/09: “Are these Yung mer mer?”
8/11/09: “Oops–I ate the poison.”
11/4/09: “Yours if fig silk.”
I’m not going to do a “2009 in review” post because I already did a “Fall quarter in review” anyways. I may do a “Winter break in review” though, because that’s kind of important.
This was a stab to the heart and slap to the face when I first watched it.
You know what Stanford should have? A course on =pixel art=. Damn, I’d totally take that.
“…the burden of heightened sensitivity which is often and inevitably accompanied by disappointment, is more than offset by the inverse state of euphoria…For every downer, there is also a far more significant offset that has the ability to wipe away even deep-seated pessimism…”
what a neat idea! This kind of stuff is why indie game development rocks.
