ugh another application done.

Tomorrow I'll start working on this PHD position thing.

Found a nice couch with a convenient "take it, if you want" sign out on the street while walking the dog.

It's pretty late and my brother's not in town today and I also don't want to bother my friends.

It's still a nice free couch, and I kind of want another couch for my living room...

proposal for a "lazy gamedev convention" where we meet up just to lay on comfy couches for a week or so.

I can't believe that I'm saying it, but I'm actually going to apply for a PHD position this week, because the subject is so close to what I've done in the past.
I probably don't have a huge chance of getting this postion, but I still want to try.

Hey folks!

I'm looking for a writer (a poet, to be more precise) for a game thing that I'm working on.

The project itself is still very early in its development, but I have some ideas that might involve poetry and I would like to work with someone who is actually good at it, instead of me trying to come up with stuff.

If you're interested, especially if your neither straight, white and/or male please give me a poke.

Right now this mostly an exploratory thing. I would like to see if the general idea that I have might work and for that I need to talk to people.

I also need to see how much this would cost me, because my money is still very tight.

Come to think of it, it's interesting that in this case the German word is the short and simple thing, wheras the English word is this weird descriptive composite thing.

Also "Hummel" is an incredibly fitting word for Bumblebee, but so is Bumblebee.

a few days ago, I suddenly realized that there's just a one letter difference between the German word for Lobster ("Hummer") and Bumblebee("Hummel") and for some reason I can't stop thinking about this.

I really should make all my political posts here unboostable. I'm not very much into waking up to a bunch of randos trying to debate me on the internet.

Yesterday, my brother took Arnold to a sort of nearby beach.

He wasn't really all that into the whole water thing, unlike most Labradors, but it seems like he's starting to like it.

It being really warm outside probably also helps.

I also couldn't renew the domain for my (very inactive) alternative games blog that wrote for about six months.

Of all the things I started and didn't see through, this is one of my larger regrets.

couldn't afford to renew the domain for Splinter Zone's website this month, so I think I should go ahead and change a bunch of links...

there will also be colours involved at some point. Lots of colours.
