I can already tell this is gonna be one of those weeks where life is going so unusually okay that I start feeling uneasy because that shit never lasts.
jimkongill asked: yeah, I'm usually more into single player myself. But the premise and world of Hawken is what drew me in haha. If you decide to play, let me know!
If/when I do, I will. There are actually a few games that I’ve sort of been meaning to try out, but haven’t just because they happen to not be on PS3. Which seems like not necessarily the best reason not to be able to play something.
Question with 1 note
jimkongill asked: do you play hawken?
I actually don’t… But it’s more because I’m not really a huge online multiplayer or FPS gamer in general. I usually tend towards third-person, single-player stuff, with long, story-driven campaigns. Not so much with the claustrophobic first-person camera and the deathmatches. I definitely love the feel of Hawken’s world, and I’ve been keeping an eye on the design work that went into it — it’s just not really my type of game, gameplay-wise.
I’m not saying I’m still never going to give it a try ever, but I haven’t yet.

Still sorting through stuff in my old room. The good news is that I’ve been finding books that were misplaced/buried in the clutter.
weirdest anonymous ask.
Question with 2 notes
Anonymous asked: I'm conflicted about drones. How do you feel about them, if you don't mind me asking.
I’m assuming you mean robotic aircraft, and not, for example, male bees? Hahaha.
I guess I feel kind of conflicted about them, too. On the one hand, there are a lot of shady issues with civilian deaths and accountability and things like that. On the other hand… they’re really cool?
(Like, seriously? I’m waiting for the first drone-on-drone dogfights. That is going to be weird and amazing, when it happens. And probably kind of scary.)
For better or worse, technology has been advancing more and more rapidly during the past several decades. This has had, and is going to have, some profound (and often kind of screwed-up) effects on society and the way the world works. We’ve found ourselves in possession of an advanced technology that has the potential to be a powerful tool for science, security, and on the battlefield. But it’s a tool that often carries with it heavy moral and ethical dilemmas. And the problem is: We can’t un-invent this. We can’t say, “I can’t deal with this, let’s just all agree not to build or use drones anymore.” So it’s just going to have to be something that society has some indigestion about for awhile.
I realize that might be kind of a dispassionate way to look at it, but it is how I feel.

These Korean “bacon-flavored” “chips” are basically the bacon version of Funyuns. I have mixed feelings. But I was expecting that.
They taste less like the way bacon tastes, and more like the way bacon smells, if that makes any sense.

Anonymous asked: You are a very handsome man. That is all, carry on.
Um… thank you, Anonymous Gray Face Person :) I don’t often get compliments, and I’ve been feeling kind of generally anxious/uncertain this week, so I’ll take it.

One of the things I dislike about having a grown-up office type of job is having to go to bed at a Normal Adult Grown-Up People hour, just to get a minimum amount of sleep that will (ostensibly) allow me to function for a full workday. Now, since I do have to get up at a Normal Adult Grown-Up People time in the morning, too, I actually start getting tired when I’m “supposed to” — so my sleeping schedule has kind of normalized, and I don’t usually have trouble getting to sleep anymore. I am often tired as shit during the day, though, even pounding caffeine (I sort of have to regulate my caffeine/snack intake by feel to maintain functionality; usually it works okay, but sometimes I’m slightly zombified). So… if this office I’m temping with happens to not decide to hire me on after the temp thing is over, I guess I have a more comfortable sleep schedule to look forward to. And being jobless again. Sleep, though.
