|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.

|30 - My 2016
||Well it's New Year's Eve, I hope everyone had a good year. My year was, less then fun. What's also sad is that my friend was going to have a NYE party, but had to cancel it cause she got sick.
Thinking about it, today would be a good time up sum up what happened to me this year. Had a few ups and downs, mostly downs. But hey, what's life without ups and downs. Just having a bad year will make next year better, right?

|29 - Tennis and drifting
||Well not much happened today. I sent out some emails and cleaned my room. But I want to write something everyday. Besides giving me something to do, I think my writing will get better the more I do it.
I guess I could write something a bit more personal. As fun as it is to make fun of someone from my past. I know, let's make fun of me this time.

|28 - Music camp embarrassment
||Well I guess not much happened today. Talked with a few recruiters on the phone. I'm meeting with one next week, free food! So not much to talk about, so story time.
So sometimes stories can be sad, sometimes happy. But sometimes we make fun of someone from our past, and this is one of those times. Like many embarrassing stories, this one comes from high school, more specifically, music camp.

|27 - Swing and a miss
||Well I'm writing this whole heading to my interview at Smith's. I'm pretty excited, even if it's only a part time job. What I really can't wait for is to get back home. While digging around for earbuds I think I found my wife's old CPU. I'll be so pumped if I can get my computer up and running.
Utah's public transportation isn't too bad. Then again, I don't have much to compare it too. It's pretty cheap, but not very fast. Maybe a little faster then walking, mostly cause you have to wait. But it's only 2.50 for 4 hours so, whatever.

|26 - Jobs here?
||Today, the job search started. I applied to a few places, also filled out this thing on perfect loop it seems like a cool job finding site. I also had a friend submit my resume. It would be nice to have a friend at the same place I'm working at.
So I got a call from Smith's today. If you don't know Smith's is just a chain of grocery stores. They had a few positions open, I ended up picking the over night stocker position. I didn't want a part time job sense I figured I'd just quit once I got a programming job. But after thinking about it, I'm going to accept it if they offer something.

|25 - Snow, pizza, date, and car
||You think I would learn by now how insane my in-laws are. I mean I don't have codes/keys to the house, I can't use a hard line to the internet, and I can't check the mail. But no, I keep getting surprised by something.
So today my mother-in-law texted me to shovel the driveway. Why she couldn't talk to me in person, when her bedroom is right across from mine, I'll never know. I wanted to aruge cause it was sunny out, not below freezing, and there was less then an inch of snow, but I'm sure I would've got shit for even suggesting I don't need to shovel.

|24 - I might be the Grinch
||So I guess my wife's family celebrates Christmas on the 24th instead. Not a big deal, but it threw me off. Turns out most of Europe does more stuff on the 24th not the 25th. Who knew.
So Christmas Eve kinda annoyed me. First of all there was a Christmas party and I wanted to go. I don't really like my in-laws, but we stayed with my aunt and uncle for a few months, and I wanted to give them the gift we got them. My wife and I were told no one in our house was going and we didn't have a ride. Turns out they went without telling us, fucking how hard is it to ask if we wanted to go.

|23 - Walking sucks
||So turns out, walking 8 miles isn't very fun. I guess I should explain why I walked so much today. Well I guess there is a bit of a story to it.
Last night I ended up going to the bar. I haven't drank sense Thanksgiving so I needed it. While I was there I figured, hey I should ask if they are hiring. Turns are they might hire a cook or two at the start of the year. Eh... I don't really want to cook.

|22 - Rip CPU
||So the CPU on my computer died, it is very depressing. So I guess work on my game has come to a complete stop. So I guess I need to figure out something to do. All I have now is my cell phone, good thing I got a new one about a year ago.
What now? Well I'm looking for a part time job right now, kinda sucks. It's going to be hard to find one this time of year. Also filling out applications on my phone isn't fun. But, I have to do it, hopefully I find something cool. Then once I'm making money I can fix my computer and start work on my game again.
