A return to journaling

Share

  Let's see how long I can keep this up. I think I should return to journaling. It's only been about 10 years since my last serious post. I now have an 8 yr old, a 3 yr old, a stable family, and a stable career. I spent most of last night playing Grant Theft Auto 5 for the first time.

  It has been over 10 years in the same house, and I just barely have equity in it. Thanks housing bubble. Me love you long time, to the tune of, probably, at least 15 years. I almost left years mistyped. I now wear glasses, so without them, I had trouble seeing it.

  The older you are the faster time moves. Just 10 years ago, I was in a master's program for computer science and dropped out to become a father. I can't say for sure if it hurt my career. I did interview with stackoverflow.com. It is one of the top ten websites in the world. The interviewing process ended semi-abruptly seemingly close to when they noticed it said I was a master's student, not I am a master's student. Upon hearing my story about applying and feeling like I made it pretty far into the interview process, someone else went and applied to a different position a few years later. They were hired, and went on to become a developer manager within 2 years, iirc.

I'm playing the heck out of Crusaders of the Lost Idols for the last 283 days.

  The most serious disjoint in my marriage thus far was after both of us being violently ill for ~36 hours. We weren't out of bed much for about 2 days, and I was coming to bed exhausted pretty close to midnight. I didn't manage to respond well hearing that I had allowed at least 30 seconds without noticing the conversation had stopped. I was busy playing a pausable silly phone game. Consequently, I uninstalled all of the probably 20 phone games I was playing most hours of the day. Only a few routinely. Once uninstalled, in the next few days, I came to realize just how often I was thinking about my phone. I guess it's time to admit I am capable of being addicted to something.

I spend a decent amount of time listening to Daniel Tosh radio on Google Music while working. Also I still have the same car I did over 10 years ago. With the rate at which my girls destroy the car, it seems we're not ready for me to get something else.

I want a motorcycle again, but the missus doesn't want to want one without a garage to house it. She also doesn't want me to have one to make her want one without a shelter for it to live in.

I think that's enough to get me started.
