Art! // Insomnia-time!

About 2 minutes something.

Yeah, it's that time of the year, again. I'll be getting a good night's sleep sometime mid-october next, I believe.

I lost my sleep mask and I can't afford to buy a new one. I can't afford to buy anything, actually - I have no expected income and almost a kilo in bills.

I'm mostly happy right now. I'm doing something useful every day, like studying, coding, or job hunting. Also quite a bit of exercising.

Been spending time getting familiar with SDL - did some blitting, moving, keyboard input and such today. I expect to have an OpenGL scene with smooth shaded boxes sometime... um, next tuesday, maybe. On one hand, I have a test on Monday, on the other, I compiled SDLGears today, so I have some example to go on.

I'll probably encapsulate all the GL-junk in a GLScene class of some sort. Digressing.

Been hooked on Google Tech Talks, too. Set up a git repository on Trista (the old linux laptop).

Urge to draw is rising, too, but it's sort of low priority. I wish....
If wishes were horses....

Um. I really should be sleeping. I am tired. It's light outside, I can't get no sleep.

Melatonin works fairly well for me, at least for a few hours. It can make me tired in the middle of the day after I take it, though. It would be better if I could find a good time-release version.

However, it doesn't stop the demons, vampires, werewolves, aliens, dinosaurs, poltergeists, burglars, etc. from getting you. The etc. are especially fearsome this time of year.

I'm having the trouble of too much sleep ATM. I seem to want to sleep every 4 hours or so that I'm awake.

Well, I sleep through winters, so.... yeah.
Doing lots of code work, but I could contractually obligate myself for two minutes per day, yes?

Two minutes per day to create a sketch, which you will then post.
