Uh, so much is happening yesterday and today that I really don’t know what’s going on. I side note: why is it that schoolwork always feels like the least important thing I have to do? No matter what, there’s always something I’d rather be doing, even if it’s fun work. I think the fact that people are telling me that I have to do it is actually a demotivating factor for me. ANYWAY…..
Another factor making it hard for me to concentrate was the ride that Valve was taking everyone on regarding the imminent release of Portal 2 last night. I kept checking hasportal2launchedyet.com to see, and the second I refreshed the page and it said “YES”, I was bolting back to my MacBook Pro and launching it. As you may be able to guess, I stayed up until about 3 AM playing it until I couldn’t think anymore. This, in combination with the fatigue I was already experiencing, is causing me to not have a very fun day today.
I woke up at 8:30 and immediately started playing Portal 2 until 10, when I was forced to clean up and go to class. But you can rest assured that, if I have access to my MBP, I will not be doing much of anything else until that game is finished. That’s why I’m taking advantage of this time right now, while I’m out at the Courant lounge, to do important stuff like blogging and implementing an entire CMS for Wonderleague….how did I agree to this….?
OH AND ALSO, GUYS…I reactivated my Facebook account today. I know I probably look like a hypocrite now, but I will always maintain that there was never a time when I claimed to dislike Facebook – there was just a time where it wasn’t for me. It still might not really be for me, but for some reason I’m in the mood today to reactivate it. I don’t know how much I’ll use it. Seeing my profile page again is bringing back all of these weird memories about what it used to be like to use Facebook. So strange – that will probably happen for any other social network that I eventually stop using and start at again someday.
And I have midterms and projects to be doing, and finals to study for….what the heck, man? All I really want to do is make and use portals and portal accessories. If you need me, I’ll be at my desk. Not much different from an average day. But really, it is.
