Freedom! I de-activated my World of Warcraft account on Feb. 24th, and haven’t gone near it since. Let me tell you, it feels good to not log into it, or look at it and worry about levels, or playing it at all. It’s been refreshing, and honestly I only thought about it because someone mentioned it’s existence to me today, haha.
Anyway, I’ve had a surplus of things to do without it, and I’m getting back into the real reason I love computers. That’s right, I’ve been coding. I’m trying to put together a database registry system that will automatically update and handle any devices and clients added to it. So far it’s working decently but still very buggy. Hopefully if I can get it down well enough I can sell the damn thing and make a killing off of it.
I’ve also gotten back into writing, a lot. I’m currently writing a story, or novel even if you will…about someone I truly admire and respect. It’s been interesting as I actually don’t know all that much about the person’s past, so I’m writing it backwards. You never really get to thinking about how little or how much you know about a person until you start trying to write about them or their life. But I guess that’s one of the funny things about people, you never really do understand what exactly you UNDERSTAND about anyone until you really try to break it down and put it to words.
Anyway…with one habit kicked I’ve discovered another. I’m addicted to Coffee, worse than I had ever imagined. I realized that I drink way too much of it, and it could be a big cause of my constant migraines. So I’m trying to cut back. In fact, today I think I drank less than half a pot myself, which is really good. But I need to up my water intake as I lower my coffee intake, otherwise I’ll end up dehydrated. Which actually…I think I was a day or two ago. I was really tired the entire day, and slept a good 10 hours, but I also had a migraine so it might be part of that.
The hunt is on though, it’s Spring…I guess, though the weather would seem to not be able to decide it’s season. But yea, spring and I need to find a nice well rounded PT/FT Job that I can do while working on all this coding jazz. I’d love to hit my name big in the software development world, but I still have to focus on living as it were while doing it. I’ve got my database system nearly done, and hopefully I can submit it to someplace like Mcaffe soon. But until then, gotta get by, so yea…here’s hoping.
Oh…it’s been snowing! Can you imagine that?! I mean how often do you see snow in Texas. We actually had a few inches not too long ago, and it lasted for more than a day, which was amazing. It felt like being back up north, without actually being there. Everyone else seemed so excited, I felt kind of bad not being as excited myself, but oh well I guess.
Anyway, my mind is racing, and it’s 4 AM! I’ll come back and update again soon, I promise. XD
Also, I realize my layout pictures are dead, I'll fix them I swear!
