Dreams… are weird.
I don’t dream a lot, and what I mean by that is that I only very rarely remember dreams when I wake up. I’m pretty sure I still dream though, I just don’t remember it.
Last night I had an odd dream. I was with someone on a beach. Everything was gray, the sand, the water, the sky. Everything. We were apparently trying to build a craft of some sort to get off the beach. I assume we were stranded. I managed to get a boat (somehow) and out in the water I befriended a bird. No clue why.
The whole thing then transitioned to me trying to get some papers from a locked office room. I think it was a school, may have been one of my old schools which would make sense. I don’t know why I wanted those papers but it seemed important. I still had the bird and was trying to use it to get into the room.
That’s pretty much what I can recall at this point. It always feels weird to recall a dream because it happens so rarely.
I can’t ever recall having a nightmare. Which I suppose I should be thankful for, but maybe I just suppress them or something?
So apparently mom read the previous post about me moving, which I didn’t expect despite posting a link to it on Facebook. Apparently she took offense to the post as she thought it implied that I’d had a horrible time living there. She said she’d “read between the lines”.
Of course it didn’t say that. I wrote that there were annoyances and several reasons to want to move out. Plenty more than what I’d written about to be sure. That doesn’t mean it was horrible. It was very comfortable. Just frustrating sometimes.
So, as usual the frequency at which I write these is severely lacking. I should try to write more.
A significant thing has happened since the last post, I’ve moved! I moved out of my parents house, after roughly 26 years of living there (I’m 28, the first two years we lived in an apartment). Continue reading “The First Move”
Went out bowling with my girlfriend and a group of friends last weekend. First we had a nice meal at the restaurant.
The bowling didn’t go well at first, and didn’t seem to go very well overall, but then I ended up winning somehow anyway, although the margin probably wasn’t that large. But still.
Always a nice surprise to win at something I guess. I continue to annoy my girlfriend by being surprisingly good at bowling. I’m sure she’ll end up winning at some point.
We’re supposedly going to have a go again in about a month, as 3 out of the 6 of us have our birthdays pretty close together. We’ll see how it goes then!
I need to look up how scoring works in bowling.
Listening to our 20+ year old cat yell somewhere in the house makes me want to cry. I don’t want to listen to him anymore, but I don’t want him to go away either.
…makes for a great improvement.
I recently had a bit of an epiphany on how to vastly improve how my portal page looks.

So, the art-counter site broke slightly a few days ago. Nothing serious though.
I had just made a new drawing for the first time in quite a while (96 days) and when I added it to the counter I noticed that it hadn’t underlined the times and made them copy-able like it was supposed to.

Yesterday night I installed a plugin for Disqus on my art site and connected it to my account. That means it’s now possible to post comments on my art.
Disqus requires logging in either with a Disqus account, facebook, twitter or google. So if you want to comment you need one of those. I like having comments on things. I like comments. As long as they’re useful or insightful of course, but I don’t mind non-useful comments either, but I’m not very likely to respond to those.
I do mind bad comments though, such as pointless hate or threats or such. That’s a given.
Can I re-iterate how happy I am to have Zandra? Am I allowed to do that?
A not-so-brief update on my life.
I’ve not written anything in a while. I realize I didn’t have a distinct plan for this blog thing when I set it up. It seems I’ve decided it’ll be a mix of personal stuff and posts about various projects.
Things are happening, good things! I just left a part-time job, that I held for about a month and a half, for a full time job at a place I worked earlier this year. At the time they weren’t able to keep two programmers on board, but now the other programmer left for a different job and I got to replace him.
