Zombie Maker – Part 2 – Drawing Zombies

Store Stylez I’ve been having trouble envisioning a style to make this game, and I finally was just like “dood, just do it in your style .” I’m still going to make UI elements very chibi, but the main game art itself will be in more of the style I draw my web comics in. …

Easy to go into teaching, hard to leave teaching

As I apply for software and web development jobs, I realize that even three years of not keeping up with the industry has left me far behind. I work teaching C++, and while there are some C++ jobs locally (not many), most jobs appear to be web development with newer frameworks – frameworks I don’t …

Nov 5

I have work to do but I can’t bare to stay awake, I’m so tired. I plan on going to bed immediately after I get home from work at 8:30 pm tomorrow, too. Watching the primary election results were too stressful, I can’t take doing that to myself tomorrow, too. I’ll either feel marginally better, …

Exhausted

I am so intensely exhausted. I hope that there is good news after the election next week, so I can at least have a fraction of weight lifted off me. It’s hard to stay feeling good when it feels like the world is going to shit.

Change the world: Posting messages

Speak to all We can talk to our friend groups and family all we want to try to change their ways, but our own sphere of people is quite small. We need to loudly exclaim that fascism is not permitted, that transmisia, islamomisia, racism, and sexism is not permitted, that the alt-right and nazis are …
