Hard To Get

I was put on a steroid, Prednisone, and I’m not really sure how that really works out. I was on a steroid earlier when I was having bronchitis issues and it seemed to wreak some havoc with my moods and anxiety. This time wasn’t too different.


Something Amazing

To be honest, the classes are good because they make me accomplish things, I have a total commitment to them. But at the same time, because there’s deadlines and such, I feel like I don’t have time. I feel like I’m always losing time.

I want to do things. I want to do amazing things.

I just don’t know what they are.


Schedules In Air

Actually, I usually gain a desire for anything once I start doing it. I have to make myself actually start doing something, whether I dread it or not, before I start feeling like I actually want to do it. I call it momentum. Getting there is unfortunately a lot harder than it sounds.


Primus2\Falcraft: New Pattern (abstract factory)

The abstract factory class in the link creates other abstract factories. This is much like the Enumeration data type which creates constants/enumerators with specific arguments. Each Abstract Factory is a throw-away object that you can use to create code dynamically for a given factory.


Primus2\Falcraft: New Data Type (map)

In PHP, keys in an array can only be a string or an integer.  However, in many general symbolic programming situations, you may want to be able to associate one piece of data with another.  You can establish a link between to pieces of data by setting one as a key and one as a value in an associative array.  The Map data type allows you to use any data type as a key and a value.


Primus2\Falcraft: New Design Pattern (publisher/observer)

One interesting note about these interfaces is that both the publisher and the observer include add and detach functions for the other.  Usually, observers only have a notify function.  Using both of these sets of functions is optional: the only set that must be implemented is on the publisher (to call the observer’s notify).


Primus2Falcraft: New Data Type (structure [typed])

This data structure mimics the C struct, sort of. A structure has specific fields to be taken care of or filled, some or all of these fields may have restrictions placed upon them. An object that falls under a particular genus may need to implement a specific interface, but contain modifiable members that need to be accessed generically.


Primus2\Falcraft: New Data Type (lists)

There are many different kinds of lists in computer programming.  Some of them act like heaps of data, some like grocery lines, some like unending rings.  Some lists you can only go forward in, some you can go backward as well.  Here are some lists that Primus/Falcraft implements.


Primus2\Falcraft: Registry Design Pattern

When you want to find an object you usually start with another object that has an association to it, and use the association to navigate to it. Thus, if you want to find all the orders for a customer, you start with the customer object and use a method on it to get the orders. However, in some cases you won’t have an appropriate object to start with.


Primus2\Falcraft: New Data Type (set)

In computer science, a set is an abstract data type that can store certain values, without any particular order, and no repeated values. It is a computer implementation of the mathematical concept of a finite set. Unlike most other collection types, rather than retrieving a specific element from a set, one typically tests a value for membership in a set.


Primus2\Falcraft: Identity Feature

The feature defines a static property for the using class.  This static counter remains unique on each poll for a new identity (in this case it’s an integer).  The $identityCounter must be ‘increasable’, that is, every time its accessed or ‘advanced’ it must be unique from all the identity values before it.  Counting up is a very easy way to accomplish this.


Writing Prompts II

I don’t have any external obstacles to my writing. Is that a good thing, a blessing deserving gratitude? Or am I unable to build skyscrapers because I have too much land?


Writing Prompts

People have told me that my ideas are creative. They are unique, and things that I’ve made have character (images and fursuit). Most of my encouragement comes from my partner but it’s hard to listen to him because he’s close to me. It’s kind of like how a compliment from your Mom doesn’t really really count because she’s your Mom?


One Pic and Site at a Time

So, I get so excited about my website ideas that, like many of my other ideas, I forget to actually commit to one and grow it. But, no more! I do the same thing with story, game, art, etc. ideas. I get so excited about the next new idea or inspiration I’ve come up with that I just kind of leave whatever I was doing and I never accomplish anything, dammit!


Memoirs of a Housewife

So, Maus got a job! That leaves me at home to tend to the apartment and work on my own stuff. I was talking to my mother on the phone and she said, “You’ve become me!” Maybe I’ll fursuit Sunday.


Original Pursuits Society

Original Pursuits Society (OPS) is an organization dedicated to creativity. This site, wunk.me, is now part of the Original Pursuits Society network, running on its server. It’d be interesting to see what we could do with this organization, but I’m focusing on developing some creative ideas to generate revenue. A newsletter would be kinda cool.


Crawling Zombies and Notebooks

So problem with the suit: Moisture collects on the glasses, fogging them up and making them extremely refractive. By the end of my tour of Zombie Crawl I could hardly see anything at all. I had a really hard time even seeing kids taking and wanting to take a picture. I couldn’t move because I was afraid I’d trample over somebody. Night time is pretty hard to see through those glasses, but add fog and moisture on top of that… impossible.


Envy and Self-Deprecation

This especially rears its ugly head when it comes to creativity. That may be part of the problem in getting over my blocks that keep standing in my way. Beyond that though, in day to day life, I STILL think I’m inferior to other people. No matter how far I’ve come I can’t let go the delusion that I’m a deformed little boy. I think; I don’t have personality, I don’t have interests, passions, or hobbies, I don’t have creative spark and inspiration, everything I make is dead in the water, everything I do is boring, nobody’s going to like my game so… why make it?


Holy Crap! Wait, What?

Oh my god, six days went by! How the heck did that happen? I got sick these last six days so that was part of it. One day I woke up at three in the afternoon, which is pretty intense for me (though not as intense as it has been before). My sinuses were clogged, and I thought it was a sinus infection, so I went to the Little Clinic.
