Thread: Things that made you happy today!

    Ooooh I remember why I don't like programming! It's not the logic, it's the maths!

    I'm making a rhythm action figure skating game today and I had to figure out how to calculate "beats per frame" which, while probably simple to the professionals, was very obnoxious for me. However, I've figured it out now and I think... I think that's gonna be the trickiest part taken care of. So I'm feeling pretty good that a) I actually kept to my plan of making this and b) I've gotten over the major hurdles.

    It's also given me ample excuse to listen to the Yuri on Ice soundtrack as that's what you skate to in the game at the moment.

    I mentioned it in my Facebook chat but I'll say it again.

    Being nice and having good manners smurfing pays off. We went to view a house yesterday and I am always sure to chat with the estate agent if I'm liking the place and this one seemed lovely. So we got chatting and she ends up suggesting another property which she had just done a showing for and she said it would suit us and that she would go take us over!

    So we went, house was flipping gorgeous!!! I wanted to apply straight away, so I asked her and she took my email - sent me the application over and so I just started emailing her - thanking her for her time and saying how wonderful she was. Later on I had difficulty getting the application form to work and accept some required documentation. I sent her a lovely email again explaining it - she told me to just forward the stuff straight to her with a promise she'll process our application first thing tomorrow.

    ---

    When I applied for the job I have now, I was always sure to follow up with nice, polite emails.... the result? I was kept up to date the whole way through and the staff got to know me a bit - it really helped me, honestly.

    SO! Everyone! Be nice ALWAYS. TO EVERYONE. You never know when that person you were nice to might be able to give you a hand somewhere - even if they don't - be nice. Because they will SURE AS HELL remember if you weren't nice.

    I can attest to remembering people that weren't nice at all, I remember them very well.

    “I feel sorry for people who don't drink. When they wake up in the morning, that's as good as they're going to feel all day.” - Frank Sinatra

    Creativity is certainly about not being constrained by rules or accepting the restrictions that society places on us. Of course the more people break the rules, the more likely they are to be perceived as ‘mentally ill’.

    Just finished doing my Orientation with the Pyrimid Corp. doing a drug and alcohol test on Monday, and will be in the field working Tuesday. Also they said all and any University that I will need for the job (which is 4 years) they are paying for! Very happy!
