I chilled out a bit.
Nothing really new with me.
@ P.I.I.Y.M. Network
Today seemed fitting to finally do this.
I haven’t met any of my goals I set for myself, online and off.
I don’t feel like the same person as I did back in ’06.
Rather than force it and have you read blog posts from someone with an insipid personality, I’m just going to stop posting for a while.
Maybe one day, I’ll get that spring in my step again.
I have taken down my blog posts, but the other pages will remain for people to access my old M.U.G.E.N files and tutorials.
If I get the urge, I’ll stream randomly on TWITCH.
I have removed Ricepigeon’s Touhou creations as per email request.
His non-Touhou creations shall remain.

A year and a half later, another loss in the family.
This person cared for us when we were children and walked us to school.
Had a silly way of waking us up for school:
“Wake up! TIME TO MAKE THE DOUGHNUTS!”
Which was a reference to the old “Fred the Baker” Dunkin Doughnuts commercials from the ’80s.
The last time I saw him was when we all went to my uncle’s house a couple weeks back.
Oh, It was the day when I made this post about hanging out with my cousins when we had the barbecue there.
I don’t know what to do or say to my mother, she took it the hardest.
I asked my father for his reaction to this situation.
My father said to me, in a very serious tone:
“It hurts, yea, but, it is a preview of what’s to come, the end of a generation.
That’s the law of life.“
I could tell he wasn’t in the mood to talk further, so I turned to leave, he then says to me:
“He used to call you, ‘Plomito‘, when you were a baby.”
“He’d joke about how heavy you were to carry.”
I gave him a quick smile and walked away.
My mother begins to dial my aunt in Mexico to relay the news, so I just let her be and head upstairs.

The book I’m starting with is “Programming: Principles and Practice Using C++” by Bjarne Stroustrup.
Afterward it will be “The C++ Programming Language” also by Bjarne Stroustrup.
I talked to my knowledgeable programmer friend on MSN over my book selection, his input was invaluable.
Here’s a few tidbits from a much larger conversation.
Me: that one arrived today, I was surprised at its thickness
you can kill someone with the thing
Him: it’s a tome
Him: it looks like a good selection though
you took a smart approach to it
Excellent, my motivation increased after he told me that.
Me: alright awesome.
Your opinion was important to me, on this matter thanks.
Him: np. feel free to ask me any questions if you have problems understanding any concepts
Me: Sure thing.
This should keep me distracted fully, right?
Wrong.. my mind tends to wander in-between chapters thinking about her.
I need to stop, seriously, I won’t learn from my books, if I keep that up.
She dislikes me and there’s no changing that anymore.
Anyway, It’ll be a while until I read that Petzold book, the author assumes I have a good handle on C/C++, not that far yet!
As for the “In easy steps” book, I skimmed it, looks decent but I prefer the books written by the actual creator of the language.
Who knows, “Lazy Dog Creations” might rise again, this time with C++ apps, but that’s thinking too far ahead.
Motivation Level: HIGH
Back to reading, until next post!
And yes Zuly, CoD and LoL are written in C++ and some Lua.
