    • The Years are Getting Faster

      9 years ago

      ACLTerror

      It's easy to say what could have or should have happened when you're looking back at what has already occurred. That said, self-pity can be one of the biggest things that can weigh on a man trying to provide for his family. Feeling sorry for myself depresses me. And when I think of what could have or should have happened, I get angry. Hence, I hate feeling sorry for myself.

      Looking back in the past several years, I remember the decisions I've made that have resulted in my life today: changing majors, staying in California, taking my time through school, not accepting out-of-state internships, proposing, getting married and having a baby right away.

      Have I always made the "right" decisions? When I ask myself this question, I try to get some perspective on my life. I have a job, a place to live, a loving and supporting wife, great friends, interesting co-workers, and, in a few months, a son in my arms.

      Screw what decision was "right" or "wrong": my life is awesome!

      This is where I hate feeling sorry for myself: I have so much to fight for and live for. Why swim in my pity when I have such a joyful life? Sure, I'm not content with the situation we're in, but that lack of contentment drives me to provide a better life for my family.

      Like Andy Dufresne said: "It comes down to a simple choice, really. Get busy livin' or get busy dyin'."

      Spent the day editing a video that was shot a month ago. I can't believe I did all the editing in one day. I have one more to go. Please, friends. Be honest and let me know your thoughts. I know there are no transitions, but I figured they would complicate things. For now, this is the video. If I have enough time between now and next Friday, I'll try to put in transitions.

      This is for a church retreat that I'm helping out with titled "Joyful Noise". Music-centric.

      Thanks!

      Hey RT people, long time, no journal. A lot has happened since I last blogged:

      Guitar Hero 5 came out
      I worked on (hopefully) my final Guitar Hero project, Band Hero
      I GOT MARRIED
      I WENT TO MAUI
      Laid off by Activision during my honeymoon
      Started a project at Square Enix
      Project at Square Enix gets postponed and I was laid off after a week
      A new project started at Square Enix and I'm working again!

      All in all, a few life changes and a few job changes have occurred in the last 4 months since I blogged last. Except for my Twitter, I've pretty much shuttered my blogs except for this one. I hope to start writing more soon on this blog to keep the few of you who read it entertained.

      I played a few days ago and while my favorite will still be Balrog, I'm inclined to learn how to use El Fuerte, the luchador wrestler.

    • Entry-less Blog, Not for Lack of Trying

      10 years ago

      ACLTerror

      As some of you may have known/noticed, my blog's been pretty boring with the lack of updates. For some odd reason, I've had writer's block and can't seem to come up with an entry without just scrapping it due to frustrations of me trying so damn hard. Please forgive me. Hopefully, I will get over it soon.

      I'm doing okay otherwise and would still like to converse with the few of you who do. I can be found most frequently on Twitter and Xbox Live. I also check this site daily as well.

      Have a Merry Christmas and hope all of y'all are well. Talk to/ play with you guys soon!

      Good to hear the retreat went well. Classes aren't too difficult at present; I'm only taking two classes since I'm working at the same time. At this rate, I'll probably finish the M.Sci in Accounting degree by the time I'm 25. Pretty much what I had hoped for. smiley1.gif

      I saw a video of one guy with a piece of armor that turned his entire set white. He looked like a stormtrooper (and he claims he shoots like one too).

      I would say I look more like a lightish red stormtrooper, in the proper lighting.

      This is a comment you posted a month ago.

      As much as I'd like to see another USC/Texas-type of game for the Nat'l Championship, I think that this will be a snoozer.

      My prediction:
      Troy Smith - 400 yds passing, 90 yds rush, 5 TD, 0 INT, makes Urban Meyer's head explode.

      Then again, everyone said the mighty Trojans would stomp my Longhorns last year... anything can happen in college football.


      If you need me I will be vomitting in the corner until Troy Smith pays reparations for the $20 I lost.

      I really wanted USC to beat Texas. As irrelevent that was, I said it to show my concurrence with you on anything can happen in college football. As far as OSU goes, my father is a longtime fan and therefore, so am I. It's just nice to see a Big Ten BCS National Champion everyonce in a while (besides Michigan, yuck).

      This lists the places where I could get one and/or own one if I lived there, which I don't.

      It lists North Carolina but that's incorrect because I just checked the state firearms laws yesterday.
