Well, the semester's over, and the Shrek game is done (and out! So you should be able to buy it right now!), and things are finally going to calm down a little and go back to "normal". I have a little time while waiting for someone to get back to me, so I thought I'd do a quick update on what's been going on.

Well, it was a really rough semester, but as you can tell from the last post things worked out in the end! I was basically working on 3 different games (2 for classes plus the Shrek game), and it wasn't easy, even though I wound up dropping a class. I was really worried about that Algorithms class since I blew both quizzes, but I did well enough on the midterm and final that I got a B after all, which was a relief.

It was really weird this past weekend since I kept thinking I should be doing something and then remembering I didn't HAVE to. Of course I probably SHOULD have been doing things like catching up on some really overdue e-mails (even to at least 1 person here), but I guess I needed a weekend off. I've been trying to get stuff done during the week but one thing after another keeps getting in the way. Yesterday we got to go to a private screening of Shrek The Third, since we worked on the game. I won't give any spoilers, but it's a fun movie and worth seeing!

Afterward to avoid traffic we stopped by Fry's in Burbank, and I finally got the parts for a long overdue new computer. We were up until 3am putting it together, so I'm exhausted today. Hopefully now Lord of the Rings Online won't be quite so laggy (it actually runs better on my laptop than my old desktop strangely enough), which would help since I signed up for a lifetime membership (I really hate paying monthly fees, so now I just have to make sure I play it for at least 2 years to get my money's worth:)).

Today I finally realized I should check my grades, which I just posted. There was also bad news today, since Lloyd Alexander died (I loved his books when I was a kid!), and Veronica Mars got canceled (just when I finally found a worthy successor to Buffy. I just hope Heroes is renewed and not opposite 24 next year).

Next week is also Baycon, so I'll be there. And there's a bunch of other stuff happening in the near future. But at least I'm finally getting a break, and I've been celebrating with my new XBox 360 Elite, courtesy of Amazon. Maybe some day I'll even get a Wii, but I'm starting to think they're a myth, since I sure can't find one for sale anywhere!

For me anyway. The Shrek game is still winding down but Justin told me they don't need me now, since there aren't too many bugs left so they can handle them without me. It's actually a relief with next week the last week of classes and finals after that. I'll be contacting ISI and letting them know I can come back, but I'm seriously tempted to take the next 2 weeks "off" and concentrate on making it through the semester. I think I could really use a break:).

Well, apparently it's not a 404 page anymore:
