## A bloggy

Joplin. The note-taking #app. Very good. Simple enough for my tastes. Cross-platform. #FOSS. Hits all the right notes (pardon the pun). So I am using it now. Gonna keep using it. And that’s all there is to that.

So, I am at the ‘rents, doing laundry, ordered a big ol’ bag of Ryan & Daughters Virginia Pipe Tobacco, and also got some smokes for right now. In the form of Swisher BLK cigars of course.

Also, taking the day off tomorrow from walking because I need rest as I recently picked up the pace on my walks to a good 3 mph when I am on pavement. Good, brisk exercise there :)

That’s all for now.

## My Devotion

To never take selfies again

To never post my face online again (except Insta where there are family members that I care about)

To not use my real name or anything like it on the WWW again

To never talk about myself again

To never be a self-absorbed, conceited dick like I have been for thale past 7+ years

Times are changing

## Speaking of things that suck

Paramore sucks. I don't know why I even revisit anything past AWKIF? Hayley hopped on the bands Insta acct to announce that they are not announcing anything and it's like: GOOD! Unless they are announcing an AWKIF throwback tour, I don't wanna hear about it.

I still adore HW, she's cute as can be and I like her (public) personality. I haven't ever met her. She might be a shitstain IRL, but I withhold judgement until I can prove that.

But Paramore is AAAAASSSSSSSS since the Riot-era and I don't see how a band goes downhill so quickly and for that long. Whatever. I am done giving a fuck about a pop-punk band from 2006. Lame as can be.

In other news: what have I been listening to lately? Well, I just discovered Pest earlier this evening (death metal) that was fairly good. Not “melodic” but...rythmic I suppose. Good stuff. Will listen again.

And also, too, I cannot sleep. Damn near midnight on a Wednesday and I have every intention of being up BY 8 AM tomorrow to walk to and thru Cliff Cave Park to the Mississippi Overlook area and I have everything ready to go for this trek but I have not gotten any sleep yet since last night. So, I need to work on that.

Be back in a bit!

## Yay For Thank You's

I made a form for people to fill out (should they want to) called https://thanx.carrd.co and I hope people use it should they derive any benefit from anything I have put into the WWW.

This includes:

• one e-book
• one privacy-centric resource page
• one blog (this one)
• and soon, one (very good) Pong game

I will get feedback for the Pong game a plenty on Newgrounds.com (should it not get “blammed”). I hope it survives the voting process. I will not read much of the commentary on it, though. There can be some mean folks on that site / is moderated poorly.

So, if anyone likes this shit I make / build / write, no NEED to say anything, but... You're welcome?

;)

## MacBook. Pong. Making It Happen.

Decided that onNovember 1, 2019 I am going to be buyhing a refurbished MacBook Pro from the Apple reseller around the corner from my apartment and as soon as I get my hands on it, I am going to make a Ponggame (a GOOD one!) and put it up on itch.io + Newgrounds.com :))))

I have been wanting to make this Pong game for a while and since I basically know what I am doing (+ learn quick, anyway) from building my FIRST Pong game in the #CS50x class in 2018, this thing is going to be a blast to make, and I am going to be building it in #Scratch2.

I am going to be doing this 100% for ME and for FUN and if you cannot already tell, I had a very productive therapy appt today, and I gained a hell of a lot of confidence in myself. Good times, indeed.

Also, I bought a lot of fruit and coffee and other good stuffs at the store earlier, and have nothing to do tomorrow AM so I am going to get in a 4+ mile walk at Cliff Cave Park (again) around 8:30 AM as long as the #STLWX is good (and it will be).

Priority #1 : exercise

Priority #2 : build the Pong game

No other outstanding priorities in my life at this time. LOL! Seriously though, these are the things I am focusing most on. I suppose it is good to be an early Millennial and not have to give a fuck about having kids or obtaining a mortgage or burdening my life with stress and other bullshit when I can just be a happyindividual all by my damnself and not care about conformity. That sounded a bit chessy, but whatever.

Go, life!

## Minimalist Audio Love

There is an Insta acct I follow called Vintage Audio love and it got me thinking of a nice vintage LOOKING/minimalist AM/FM radio I could buy for my stereo cabinet. I think I am going to ask for it for my birthday (November) and then I can have something to listen to NPR on. Sometimes I will listen to 105.7 The Point and sometimes KSHE 95 , but really just NPR.

Fun times
