"Life sucks and then we die." 

Those are some words my pastor imparted to me, years ago. And they've stuck with me ever since. He was right, after all. Life does suck. And then we do die. But, in the meantime, there's pour over coffee from Fairgrounds. 

Also, in the meantime, there's work to be done. 

Speaking of work I've been doing a lot of that. The game is going great, thanks for asking. I've finally gotten around to making the bare-bones online presence for it. You can check out the dev-blog here. Updates for the game live on my personal twitter. And I'm starting to construct an ad to trick some poor sap into being my artist. Check my Lemmasoft page for that. And AW MAN DID YOU SEE THAT "SOCIALIZING SIMULATOR" PAGE UP IN THE MENU BAR? CRAZY, RIGHT? HOW DID THAT GET THERE? (clickitwussidareyou)

So, also, check out the contributing authors on this anthology and see if you find something familiar. I'll give you a hint, you're looking for something that looks like nIkKi MaCaHoN. (The story's probably really dumb but you won't know that for sure until you've bought the book and read it yourself sooooooooooooooooooooooooo.................)

Also, in the meantime, life happens. 

And, as previously mentioned, it sucks. But sometimes it doesn't? Because maybe you have a couple of perfect days, days that seem almost like a myth. Nothing goes wrong, you spend time with loved ones, you make memories. Maybe you make cookies with your mom or get drinks with your friends or try on milk-carton costumes with your brother. But then maybe at the end of those days you still stay awake at night wondering how it can still feel like you did something wrong, like there's still something that's just off and somehow it's your fault. 

Or maybe you're having the worst week ever and one of your best friends just so happens to be having the exact same week, and that weirdly makes it okay? 

Maybe you're cycling but you know you won't be for long. 

Because-I don't know. Maybe the point isn't always to "be well". Sometimes, it might just be to "have hope". 

That's all I got. 'Til next time, nerds.
