I think I have an impulse control problem. I control them too much.
Why aren't there any French fries in a California Roll?
So, years later: after eating a low-carbohydrate, high-protein, high-fat diet + nightly walks + weight training 3 times a week, and I'm stable at 185~190 lbs.
I feel much healthier now. I still binge drink at least once a week, which doesn't help with fatigue or cognition. I experimented living without caffeine. That lasted nearly a year. It was good. I'm back on caffeine, and I really feel like it's generally harmful to my well-being. Too bad. I liked coffee.
What if Chuck Tingle is actually a highly functioning AI? Like, relatively speaking.

[Edit] Like, not a very good AI, but relatively autonomous. Can handle a Twitter account and self-publish books but is basically insane.
If you are using Unreal Engine 4.10, and you get the following error:

An error occurred while trying to generate project files.

"C:/Program Files/Unreal Engine/4.10/Engine/Binaries/DotNET/UnrealBuildTool.exe" -projectfiles -project="C:/Users/Andrew/Documents/Unreal Projects/ZA/ZA.uproject" -game -rocket -progress -2015

What that actually means is that you do not have Visual Studio 2015 installed.
Total Fucking Burnout.

After 10 years at the same programming job, I was completely burnt out. I was drinking between 6 and 10 cups of coffee a day. To counteract that, I was drinking between 2 and 6 beers a day. I did absolutely no exercise. I was angry most of the time, and I feel like I was becoming a worse person in every way.
And then I was laid off. It wasn't a surprise, but I still resented it. In fact, it was probably the best thing that could have happened. The first week was spent day-drinking at home. After that, I attempted desperately to create a new career. Nothing happened, nothing happened. Finally, I just gave up.
I now have a new job. It is almost completely boring. But, my sleep patterns are regular. I exercise almost every day. I drink alcohol at most 3 times a week. I even quit drinking coffee.
Am I "back"? No, and I wonder sometimes if the years of abuse have permanently damaged me. However, I am dedicated to spending 2 years trying to rebuild myself before I can make any judgement.
Down from 200 lbs to 193 lbs. My goal is 170.
Chekhov's Machinegun:
When a movie hints at a particular object so many times that its usage not only becomes an eventuality, but is completely obvious when that happens.
Well, the first Mayfly session didn't go super-awesome. I did hammer out my standard decoupled movement routine and get the player ship flying around in an empty level, but 15 minutes was my limit before I succumbed to distraction.
So, a new idea: Project Mayfly. I'm going to do a project where I restrict myself to working no more than 30 minutes each day. I want to see if by not giving myself unlimited time, if I can stay focused on working instead of surfing the internet.
Oh, yeah, also new RGBVS 0.9 build!!!
