      So, I re-sponsored and stuff.

      During that time I made a game!

      It's not great, but I made it!

      Writer Unblocked!

      3 years ago

      Some of you may know that I am working on a novel, and have been for quite some time, off and on. Right now is definitely one of the "on" times. I have decided to write at least half a chapter a day, or at least three chapters a week, allowing me a little slack. For a book that will probably end up being around 26 chapters long (according to my notes), with nineteen chapters to flesh out and write, that leaves about seven weeks to two months before I have it finished, following that speed.

      It is exciting to have a plan finally! smiley0.gif

      I despise running. But, I have to find a way to make it work.

      At the moment, I am working a dead-end job with zero future in it. Great start, eh?

      Don't get me wrong, I like my job...well, used to like it. I am tour guide at a cave in Texas. It is fun, but not exactly career material. I am working there full time right now, having dropped out of college (sounds worse than it really is, I promise) as of the beginning of the most recent semester.

      I am currently trying to get into the fire department, and took the time off of classes to try and make that happen. I applied with Austin, being so close, last December. Any of you who live in Austin may have seen or head all of the stink about the fire department hiring process, and how the questions and answers were leaked to the candidates at some point during the process, so now we have to start all over with the oral interviews. I am confident that I can do it again (I did it once) but the process is taking a ridiculously long time.

      Because of this, I also applied with Arlington FD. Their process is similiar, with the addition of timed run. It is just a mile and half, which must be completed in 13:57. If you had told me a few years ago to run that, I would have said "BRING IT ON I EAT RUNNING FOR BREAKFAST". I am not in bad shape (I have been working out for another segment of the tests, the CPAT, which, as far as I can tell, was devised by Satan) but running is just not my strong suit anymore. I am going twice a day, before work and at night, desperately trying to improve my stamina and my time.

      Trouble is, the test is in four to six days (I find out tonight) and the most I have managed to get is a strong mile before my legs yell "No more, fatass! We quit!" I don't feel like I am making as much progress as I could be as far as stamina goes.

      Any runners have any secret tips?

      Omega, Tex, Mr. Freeze and Carolina

      It is my opinion that the Director probably started with PF as he said in the end of Recon, that he was looking for a way to contribute to the war because he couldn't personally. I think he had the Alpha long before he had the idea of splitting them, and was running his own experiments on it just for the giggles, and then realized that it could be fragmented. These fragments began exhibiting different personality facets, and he kept going to see what he could do.

      The Alpha was meant to be implanted in a single agent originally, so maybe he was pitting them against each other to get the honor?* When it began to fragment, he realized he had more options. The director said there were many unharvestable fragments, so they had some way of examining them. I think he discovered one of them reminded him a little too much of Allison (perhaps his memory of her? Memory IS the key...) and so he set her aside with the idea that maybe she could be used to resurrect her in someway, perhaps implant the AI in a human body.

      This raises the question of why Omega was so devoted to staying with her. Sure, Omega is anger, but why would anger be connected so heavily to Tex? Because he was angry for losing her? Perhaps he was angry because he couldn't protect her, thus Omega continually finding its way back to Tex over and over, trying to fulfill that part that he missed out on.

      * If he was pitting them against each other for the honor of being implanted, that could explain why Carolina (at the top of the list) received two as the experiments continued, possibly because she was the highest and "deserved" it, and it also conveniently made a nice experiment: "How well would our best and brightest do with two other minds inside of her own?

      It is interesting how my activity all seems to center around the RvB seasons...like, I watch everything that gets posted, but I only ever use any of the features when in RvB mode.

      I am done lurking in LFTO...

      So, I just noticed you're up near the top of the list for Most Online Users due to the recent time-online screwup...Your total time online exceeds the number of days you've actually been a member of the site! XD Temporal impossibility is fun.

        Awwwwwwesome. I saw your journal about it and got a good chuckle at my own time.

        Hooray for time travel!

      Oh of course there isn't. Just...when my friends are playing the Reach Beta or getting new achievements or watching Netflix...playing through Ocarina of Time Master Quest or Snowboard kids for the zillionth time, it can be a tad frustrating =P

      Aw man that's rough. It sucks though, cuz that thing is my TV (via Netflix) my DVD player, my game console (no shit) AND a great means of communication. WIthout it...well, I've been stuck without TV or movies, and have been playing N64 games haha.

      A fair point. Since you seem to be sober and pleasant, however...what are you up to? Play any good games recently?

      Hah, that would certainly explain the sudden spurt of hostility...in fact, if you're all a couple hours ahead of me, the bars probably just closed recently XD

      Interesting how instead of pointing out that I shouldn't have taken it seriously in the first place everyone else suddenly became way more serious and started whining about everything I said =P

      I'll keep it in mind nonetheless. Seems the angry users come out at night though, cuz I haven't had any problems aside from this since I joined a year ago. But normally I'm posting during the day. Are they all drunk, or just Buck? ;P
