Passive Income

I proposed to Maus that we try to do something simpler than we’ve ever done first. I suggested we make a basic visual novel. Just a choose your own adventure style game with music, text, and graphics. Maus was like, “That’s so boring!” but I was like, “No, really, you want to prove we can make something, then let’s make something!” So, Maus and I are going to start working on our first visual novel. We’ll see how that goes.

When Bad Things Happen

Sometimes bad things happen to good people, but you know, sometimes bad things happen to bad people too.

Being Rich

I like being rich. I daydream sometimes about how something I do will make me super wealthy one day and mostly about what I’d do with it. I’m such a hedonistic capitalist. Well, I wouldn’t say hedonistic by my standards, more selfish. That’s not a bad thing!

Looking To The Future

My sister-in-law says I am the most optimistic person she knows in my family. It’s funny because I’m also the only person in our immediate family who’s attempted suicide so many times, and has of course been very very lucky to have never succeeded.

A New Digital Brain!

I have always had this dream. Ever since I read an Isaac Asimov robot story, I’ve always wanted a robot friend of my own. My favorite character is HAL 9000 in 2010: Space Odyssey. My favorite episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation is when Data makes a ‘child’ named Lal. I’ve been fascinated by robots for a long time. The scene at the end of War Games is gripping, Centennial Man is awe-inspiring, and AI is awesome. However, that fascination has never quite spilled into my normal life as I was always too focused on programming and making games. However, I’ve been talking about it for a while, and I’d be more into it but I’m working on another invention.

Tired Clichés

There’s this thing about simple words that I find peculiar. It’s like a relative of mine who’s life is a mess, quite a bit of it at their own hand. When confronted with a suggestion to go to therapy, they conceded. But when told that they have to take responsibility for her own emotions, they say, “Oh I know I know”. Or, when its suggested that only they can control themselves and no one else, they say, “I know that, I know.”

Daydreams

I’m such a daydreamer. I like to daydream about accomplishing great things. But I like daydreaming so much, I often forget to actually do them. I live “inside my head”. I think living inside my head has brought its boons and its own drawbacks.
