Good 'ol livejournal. I don't know why I quit you.

Expect postings later. Right now I have an affiliate program to complete.


what now?

I got laid off Tuesday. It's ok though, that job sucked anyways. I'm even sort of glad it happened, because the job made me gripe all the time and I'm sure Amy was just about sick of it. Kudos to Amy for putting up with it for this long <3

This is the plan now:
  • Get a job quickly to pay the bills.
  • Get a job that will let me go to school and work.
  • Go back to school.
I took a practice college mathematics placement test and surprisingly got an 82. This leads me to believe that my prior hatred of math and subsequent ignorance of it were proportional to how bad my teachers were in public school. If you can't show an interest for what you're teaching, regardless of the subject, just don't do it. My Alabama History teacher was awesome, and that class was fucking stupid. Anyways, I'm going to take the prerequisite math courses for the calculus classes first, just to brush up on some stuff that I missed because I was bored out of my skull. It's going to be summer before I can get back in school so that should give me plenty of time to find a good job.

I was listening to Einstein's Relativity Audiobook last night as I fell asleep. I had some of the strangest dreams I've ever had. I won't go into too much detail, but I'll just say it involved bullets, spacetime, and anal sex. Even stranger than the dream I had the other night when Amy busted open my acoustic guitar and there was a twenty pack of Tyson chicken wings inside.

I'll be fine.

Ruby on Motherfuckin' Rails

 Ruby. On Rails.

I've been hearing the buzz over this for nearly two whole years but I didn't see what all the fuss was about until I actually tried it.
Get this:

Make the database schema. Make a program and HTML form to put info in. Make a program that pulls it out and prints it. Make a program and HTML form to edit it. Make a program to delete it. Make a program and HTML form to change it.

Make new ruby application. Make database schema. Make model. Make Controller. Put in one line: scaffold :whatever.

That gets me to the exact same point in the application. That's it. Fully functional. Yeah. I can actually add a few more lines to validate the stuff entered into the form AND display errors if it gets the wrong stuff. YEAH.

I'm going to write my blog using ruby soon. I'm a noob to the whole framework but I'm shooting at one day to get the code working.


They gave Al Gore the Nobel Peace Prize.

Suck on that, dubya.

I'm so bored

I'm making lolcats. I am as retarded as the rest of the internet.
