40 - I don't get interviews Let’s just start off with some bad news. I didn’t get the job I interviewed for yesterday. I was surprised how quick the turnaround was on that. I thought the interview went well. I’m a little bummed, but hey, I can’t beat myself up about it. Plus I have a few other things in the pipeline, I hope. The last few weeks I’ve talked with some recruiters so hopefully more interviews will come soon. I replied to the email from the company that told me no and asked if there's any reason why, or was it just a matter of skill/experience. Hopefully I can at least learn something out of all that, and I guess I got a good workout from it. On the much brighter side of things, tomorrow the CPU and motherboard for my friends media server is coming in. Like I mentioned before they are going to let me use the old parts. It will be nice having my own computer back up and running, even if it’s not going to be as good. I’m hoping I can at least start coding again, do some more work on my video game and hopefully stream some of that. Who knows I guess we will see when they get home tomorrow. . . . 1/10/2017 5:55:26 PM
39 - The interviews begin Sorry this post is so late, I'll get into why later. Alright so I had my interview today! But before that let's go back a bit. Let's just start this story at the beginning. Hope that isn't too crazy of an idea for you guys. So first of all I had to take public transportation, I've done it a few times, no big deal right? Well due to how the schedules worked I had to go some round about path that took me 2 and half hours. Oh well at least I didn't have to walk much. Plus from what I looked up it would only take a little over an hour to get home. . . . 1/9/2017 11:35:17 PM
38 - How I met my wife So not much is going on right now. I’m living with my friends and it’s pretty nice here. One of them let me borrow his old laptop so I have some computer access, it’s so nice to have that again. Later this week they are getting a new cpu and motherboard for their media server, and they said I could use the old parts. Maybe I can get my main computer up and running and get back to working on my video game then upgrade my computer once I get some money from a job. I don’t want to leave you guys with a short blog again today, so I figured I could tell a fun/sweet story. How I met my wife and how I proposed. It wasn’t anything romantic like what happens in movies but I guess you could consider it a pretty nice story. Really we just met while working and things went from there. . . . 1/8/2017 6:55:42 PM
37 - Friends house Sorry I'm writing this late, I had to move out of my house. So the friends I stayed with the other night are letting me live with them for a month or two. Awesome guys! . . . 1/7/2017 9:29:26 PM
36 - Eviction Well I got a 5 day eviction notice last night. BAM! That's how you start a blog. I really don't know what happened. So my mother-in-law walked into my room, handed me a paper, say this is for you, walked back to her room, and shut the door. Doesn't really say anything to me, the eviction notice doesn't give a reason. She's fucking insane. . . . 1/6/2017 7:09:08 PM
35 - Concept: Regret Before I get into things I want to just complain a bit. So I could of interviewed with a company today, but my mother-in-law said she would be busy. Well turns out she got home an hour before I'd have to leave. Then I tried to set up an interview for Friday, but she wasn't sure if she would be busy I pressed her on the topic. Well I guess someone is coming by to fix a truck, and when I asked why would that make her busy, she just said, cause I'm paying. What? Finally we haven't had heat for 3-4 days, it was 52 inside till she finally called someone today. . . . 1/5/2017 6:55:47 PM
34 - Job prospects are looking up Alright things are starting to look up. I went downtown today for what was supposed to be lunch. Turns out the guy forgot it was supposed to be lunch and we just met for an hour. My wife sure walks a lot faster when we don't have a kid with us. I had a hard time keeping up on the way to the train. . . . 1/4/2017 7:15:19 PM
33 - Adventure with my son If you don't know, I have a son who is two years old. His name is Rex with the initials RTS, don't know how I managed to convince my wife. He can be a big pain, but we have fun sometimes. Today we went on a little adventure, here's a picture of us on the way home. . . . 1/3/2017 6:44:26 PM
32 - Why Netherlands? Yesterday I hinted at why I wanted to move to the Netherlands. Figured it couldn't hurt to go over some details. Well I guess I could sum most of it as based on politics and ideologies. So if you don't know, I currently live in America, for my whole life. I've lived in Connecticut, Maine, and Utah. So I've seen some of the US, and while I don't like Utah there are issues I have with America as a whole. . . . 1/2/2017 7:04:24 PM
31 - Why am I making a video game? So it's a complex answer, why do I want to make a video game? In a way, I don't want to. Well it's more like it's the best option for me. When I say I don't want to, it's more like, it's not the ultimate thing I want to do. I'm not sure I know what I want to do. So why a video game? Well there's a few things that lead me to that decision. Well I want to be able to make a living off my own work, I enjoy entertaining people, and I know how to, and like to, program. . . . 1/1/2017 6:42:38 PM
