After a few days of feeling like garbage from Covid, I feel like I might be getting better. Throat hurts less, a bit more energy, less congestion. I still don't think I'm going to make it back to work this week at all, though.
After 3 days of going to the hospital, my kidney stones are finally out, as is the drainage tube I had in my side for 2 of those. Unfortunately, as one more "F*** you" to end the year, I now have Covid.
I had my urology appointment today, and it looks like I will be needing surgery to remove the kidney stones. Thankfully, the surgery doesn't sound too invasive, but I will have a stent in for a few weeks afterwards. It sure as heck sounds better than being in constant pain and taking opiates every day.
Well, here we go. I just started a new project called "Wait, I'm a Hero Now?" in MV. It's pretty much purely humor, with a totally uncooperative MC, Sidney, who comes up with savage responses to any Hero related stuff she's supposed to do.
Fricken hell! I dropped a bowl with mac and spam on my brothers floor, and was going to put leftover mac with whatever was still safe in there. It was only after I added the leftover mac that my brother told me he put floor noodles in there, now I wasted my planned dinner for tomorrow!
Currently working on a playlist of songs that have inspired my work on revamping Battle Castle, and making sure they flow decently from one to the next. I will be posting it whenever I upload my next demo.
This is the first song in the playlist.
Turning a specific vibe into reality is incredibly difficult. For instance, this song is one of the ones I listen to when working on my post apocalyptic project, and getting it's "feeling" into the game has been a real challenge.
What a stupid week so far! I was really short on sleep yesterday thanks to my back hurting and not falling asleep fast enough, now today I am 2 hours late for work because my damn alarm clock changed from the alarm setting, to the radio setting which I always keep muted.
Scripts can be so annoying sometimes. I've spent the last few hours trying to find which script is conflicting with another one, which is freezing the battles in one of my projects. Every time I think I find a solution, it gets more and more confusing.
Well, I just dodged one of the biggest bullets of my life today. Yesterday, I discovered that a large sum of money may or may not have been stolen (or someone misplaced it), the CEO was notified, and at least 4 people were fired over it. I was on the tertiary of the event so I was really scared I was going to be fired too, but thankfully that didn't happen.
It's definitely discouraging when streamers give a try-to-say-it-nicely (i.e. bad) review of your game demo. It's like jumping into a cold pool. Bad initally, but it gets better with time. And you are now more alert and see better.
Went to get some stuff for February 10, the birthday of my favorite ink monster...
I have a little one-person party for Bendy every year, complete with the life-size plushie I made. And yes, I bake a birthday cake!
