As an American, I don't know a lot about the other cultures of this world. But what I do know, is that during the weekend of Saint Patrick's Day, in the United States, everybody is Irish.

This holiday might not make sense to a lot of people, but in the United States, the idea is to get drunk with Irish whiskey and beer, eat Irish food, and have a lot of fun.

Quite frankly, it's my favorite holiday.

Everybody wears green, everybody gets together and Cooks good food, brings good beer, and we all have a lot of fun drinking for no reason, other than some silly holiday that says hey... We should all drink and have fun.

Anyway, TWHL, all of you have been great to me, and I wish you a happy Saint Patrick's day, and I hope you all have enjoyed some delicious beverages, enjoyed some delicious food, and I have had a fantastic night/ weekend.

Life update.

May 5th 2017: I quit my job at a chemical plant because I was not happy. I decide to move to Florida because: 1) I don't like cold weather, 2) why not.

May 12th 2017: I fly to Florida to an interview with a company my friend works for. Not exactly a position I really wanted but it was a job and I was unemployed.

May 13th 2017: Friend gives me a business card for a tech recruiter down in Florida.

May 14th 2017: I email recruiter and get a phone call back for an impromptu phone interview.

May 17th 2017: Fly back to boring rainy Connecticut.

May 24th 2017: Skype interview with recruiter. Goes well. Presents opportunity for neat job, thinks it'll be a good fit.

May 25th 2017: Recruiter has lunch with managers from job opportunity. They seem excited. He's excited, I'm excited.

May 30th 2017: Phone interview with new company. Went well. I laughed, they laughed, we talked about TWHL and my misc game development and programming experience. (neat)

June 4rd 2017: Begin move from CT to FL

June 5th 2017: Complete (mostly) move from CT to FL

June 7th 2017: Face to face interview with same company I had phone. It went well. I laughed, they laughed, we went more into my VG experience for some reason. 5 hours later they offer me the job, I accept. I have a job.

So I was unhappy. Made a handful of significant changes and I'm on my way to being happy.

The job: Designing and programming amusement park rides.

Real. Life. Videogames.

Oh my God

I'm streaming on Twitch!!

Well not right now...

I plan to stream every Tuesday night at around 8:00pmEST EDT (GMT-4). possible Sunday streams as well depending on how my weekends go.

I'll be mostly mapping but there might be some modeling thrown in there too. This will be related to half life 1 and 2 mapping and modding.

There will be a lot of trial and error but that's how it goes.

Tune in tonight for the first scheduled stream!
I'm working on a hl2 map where there's half fps problem solving and action, half 3rd person space shuttle flying.

Last time on the stream I got the ship controls working but they're difficult to use and they can be vastly improved. I'll be upgrading the control scheme tonight!

I hope to see you there!
