Uh. Currently sitting at work. Such a great job that I can sit here and do nothing and make above minimum wage. Cleaned my room today. Still needs some work but it went well. New sheets on the bed and all the clothes picked up and put away. Today I woke up at 2am and watched Dragon Ball Z Kai for most of the day. I have cut out League but still need to cut out animes. Dragon Ball Z Kai isn't even that great so I think I will stop watching it. I thought a lot about the game I want to make though. I want to include a mechanic where you learn a skill when you defeat a species of enemy. I checked out different kinds of games I can make. I think I want to do a action rpg. I'll be done with work in about an hour and I can finally go home and sleep! Zach

Big news. I found out that I can keep my student job as long as I take one or two classes. I am not sure which because people told me different things. My job is really great because I basically just sit around all day and get paid for it. Perfect for taking time off. Beats the hell out of any other part time job. Skipped both my classes today though. I think I am going to drop two of my 4 classes and try to do well in the other two. My advisor has not been very helpful so far. Talked with my friend about going to the gym and creating a work out plan. I should eventually but I don't think that is what I should be focusing on right now.

Woo! More posts! So I talked to my parents about dropping out and they weren't too thrilled. Basically, they think I'm depressed because I sleep a lot, wear mostly black, and have a dark room. I also told them I haven't been taking my medication because I think my doctor is insane and nothing has changed on my medical reports for like 4 years. So now my mom is following me around and bringing me pill, which is so embarrassing. She hasn't called me today yet so maybe she quit. (I can dream, can't I?) I also found out that I can keep my student job if I just take one class. Which is great because my student job is way better than any other part time work. I will now be able to focus on the website business and designing my own game. I am going to upload some of the early art in a little bit! Things will my ex-girlfriend are alright. We talk every now and then, but I don't see us getting back together anytime soon. She is headed to Spain for study abroad and I'm taking time off to see what the "real world" is all about. It just wouldn't be a good time for a relationship. That doesn't mean I've counted all the girls out yet though! I recently picked up magic because my roommate wanted someone to play with. I took an immediate liking to green and white. So last night I couldn't sleep so I went downstairs and talked to my roommate for a bit. We talked about our business plan for a little bit and then talked starting about magic. I ended up staying up until 7am (when I had to go to work) building a high mana/draw green white deck. I tested it extensively and am exciting to try it out with Zach(my roommate). I have two tests on Wednesday. I am not looking forward to them. Circuits 1 and Linear Algebra. I haven't been to either class in about two weeks(the last time we had a test). I have taken both classes before and not done well in them. I'm not sure if trying to withdraw from them is a good idea or not. I need to meet with my adviser and see what options I have. I think that's all for today. -Zach

Been a long time since I've updated anything on this website. Reading my last post is pretty funny to me because I have no idea what I was thinking about at the time. It seems one of my last goals was getting in shape. Well, just to update that, that did not happen. If anything its gotten quite a bit worse. But that's not the focus of this post. The point of the post is to detail what's been going on in my life and how this blog is going to change. Currently, I am in my Junior year of college at the University of Pittsburgh. Its become apparent to me that I am not enjoying my time at school and have decided to take some time off. This is a really huge decision for me and I want to log the steps leading up to and during the next few months. This blog will now be about the life of a college drop out. My roomate is also thinking about dropping out and our current plan is to go into business together making websites for companies that do not have them around our area. My parents are coming in tomorrow to talk to me about the decision and what my plan is. I have been reading a lot on how to make money online and will most likely be putting that to use. My ultimate goal is to have a steady stream of income so that I can wake up and not have to worry about fiances and can just focus on what I want to do that day. Seems like a pretty standard American dream. Hopefully, I can make this work out! Since I am just starting with getting back into blogging, I will be working on the layout/design/promotion and my writing style in the coming weeks. Wish me luck! Zach
