 great success today! why?! because I am that persistent.

Found a quote today

“Flatter me, and I may not believe you. Criticize me, and I may not like you. Ignore me, and I may not forgive you. Encourage me, and I will not forget you. Love me and I may be forced to love you.”

hm

 people who get bored easily do not see their environments as rich or lively...?
Backyard games, summer camp, trips to the pool… what's your favorite childhood memory of summer?


My favorite memory of the summer as a child...

Running around the block at night. Hanging out at our porch telling the dirtiest funniest jokes with each other. Double dutch and gossip. Playing around in our school yard. Catching frogs and other creatures. Reading until 4 am. Playing on my friend's tire swing. Riding bikes with my friend and practicing popping wheelies. Kickin it at each other's houses to play playstation and genesis. Having my crush come over as we used to kick it and just feel sooooo madly sprung over him.

Design Thinking

A long time ago when I was young, whenever I would draw something or create something...I would try my best to make sure that the piece I made stayed intact. I would take hairspray and use it as a cheap fixative to make sure that it would not fade. A lot of the times I would record my ideas on paper and keep them somewhere safe. I always thought in the same way that makes computers great. Non-destructive and permanent.

I was also really protective of my ideas as well. If I had a really good idea I didn't want to share it with anyone. I suppose in essence this is one of my biggest characteristic of selfish behavior. I dislike sharing my ideas so much. I was always afraid of someone will take it, blatantly use it or butcher it. Its narcissistic to a large degree. However after working on design things for several weeks now I started thinking that idea needs to go. 

I don't mean completely but I mean for the most part yes. I would still avoid sharing brainstorms, conceptual ideas because when those are give away you pretty much give up the rights to your project.

But I realize that I shouldnt be so afraid anymore. People who blatantly plagiarize perhaps do this so often that eventually it will catch up to them. They will not produce quality work and will stay where they are and will never be able to get anywhere. And its sometimes funny...or at least somewhat funny when they do a bad job of reusing your work. You can also make an example of them on the internet...

Worked well for a lot of designers I have encountered that have been ripped off.

Glad I have found an answer to something that has been bothering me for a very very long time.

Writer's Block: Family Is…

What does family mean to you?

It means you guys are a foundation. You help each other stay together through whatever. You guys should be solid as a rock. And if anything you help build something wonderful.

Family is about helping each other grow to become mature and responsible individuals. 

sigh...so true

The games industry has had a massive problem from day one, one that nobody is quite sure how to fix. This problem is the reason thousands of arcades had to close down after the 80s, and it's why Atari, Sega, NEC and countless other electronics giants had to bail out of the console business after losing millions. It's the reason why even Microsoft has lost billions on its gaming division.

The problem is that video game players simply won't keep playing without a new gimmick every five years or so. Where people have been happy watching celluloid movies for like 80 straight years, for whatever reason gamers won't keep playing games unless given a completely new format every half decade.

 perhaps one of my most favorite feelings in the world is to feel inspired

Writer's Block: Bitter aftertaste

Do you judge people based on their taste in music? How has musical taste either enhanced or detracted from your relationships (including friends, roommates, and romantic partners)?

I think I cannot and absolutely not date someone who only liked one genre of music
haters will always be haters...ballers are meant to ball...
