Uh oh, bad me! I slept through my alarm and wound up getting late, didn’t exercise at all, and ate a bunch of junk food all day. Well, I guess it’s okay once in a while.
I also did lots of work and later did more research-type stuff for other work. I also sat down and started to make a list of all my projects in progress or projects I want to do but haven’t started. I feel I forgot some things so I’m sure the list itself will be a project of its own 😛
I also did some work on EarthBound Central stuff, mostly looking at how its ads did over the last year so I can see if it can be improved in any way. The site doesn’t make much money but it’s helped me through some rough spots in the past. Anyway, I downloaded a bunch of data on how the site performed last year, except it was all in Excel format, which I converted to CSV and then had to do a bunch of work by hand to import that data into a MySQL database. From there, I’m able to analyze the data much more easily and identify all sorts of trends. I still need to do more work with this later but I’m glad I finally got around to doing it – I meant to do this last year too but just got lazy and pushed it off for a whole year.
I also worked for a bit on my MOTHER 3 translation notes, they’re coming along nicely. I often check back on the development discussions for details and info, which is another plus of being the translator for the translation I’m analyzing.
Then I began work on adding a new mode to PopShoot, a game I’m hoping someday I can sell for actual money on a variety of platforms. Everyone I’ve shown the game too starts out with, “Hmm? What’s this?” and then within 30 seconds they’re like, “Oh!” And then the brain drugs start flowing. After showing it to a few people around the Fangamer office I decided to start beefing the game up more, so I’m going to try to work on it a tiny bit a day, even if it’s just the tiniest little bit of progress.
Then it was time for dinner – Chinese food while watching the AVGN. A nice, relaxing way to end the day.
