Thoughts on Life

Life goes, I suppose.

Today, I went to Border’s to use up my gift card on books, with the intent of picking up copies of Slaughterhouse-Five, Fahrenheit 451, and Brave New World (the last being the most important). However, of those books the only one that was not $15 was Fahrenheit 451 (seriously, if Amazon can sell these for $8 new, why can’t you?), so I picked up a couple clearance books instead. Spent the afternoon and evening reading through them. It’s nice… I haven’t really just sat down and read books for fun in a long, long time. (Perhaps the speed at which I go through books is a contributing factor, given I finished three 200-400 page books in 6 hours. Then again, given I watch most DVDs at 1.5x with subtitles, I probably go through all media faster than most people.)

Work goes. I find it strange how I can enjoy the work I am doing so much, yet be so frustrated by work in general. Perhaps it’s because it’s always the little details that annoy me, but the general work I’m doing is interesting and awesome. So it goes.
(As an example, I had to attempt to submit a changelist seven times today before it went through, over a period of about 2.5 hours. Frustrating.)

I have been working on the redo of RPG Get!… again. It’s now on its fourth revision (second, as far as the general public is concerned), and will hopefully be ready for limited playtesting this weekend. With the rules revamp came a template revamp (although this was actually not necessary this time). Playing around in Photoshop is always fun, and I’m hoping to be able to do so for each expansion set released as I redesign the templates to fit the particular source material.

Personal life continues to be very nice. I suppose I don’t write about that enough, but I don’t really know what there is to say. Things go well and I am very happy. Whee.

I feel like I haven’t been sleeping well lately. I should attempt to rectify that now.
