State of the Emptyeye- March through May

It’s been awhile since I did one of these. Let’s get to it.

First of all, I’ve started my new job. It’s the same title as my previous one–Systems Analyst/Programmer–but my actual work is quite different. Without getting too into specifics, my first big job is moving data in an Access database out of Access and onto SQL Server (We’ll still be using Access as the frontend). It’s a cool challenge, and I’m learning more about Access than I ever wanted to know, which will hopefully help me in the future. I’m also learning Perl, and while I haven’t been able to apply it yet, it’s something I can see being useful in certain contexts.

Last week, I hit my weight loss goal, getting down to 146.4, about a half pound below my goal of 147. As a bonus, I have something approaching muscle definition. I’ve been adjusting my workout routine of late, incorporating principles of Starting Strength to see what happens. It’s bizarre to be able to answer the question “Do you even lift Bro?” in the affirmative, even though I’m still at a very beginner level.

On the gaming front, the Games I Beat In 2014 series is rolling along, with 33 entries and over 24000 words in it. There are another couple entries to write over the next couple days, too, so stay tuned for that.

In short, I’m doing pretty well. Hopefully the momentum continues.

    Simply making a statement doesn’t automatically make that statement true. I did watch the video, that is how I can to that conclusion. The author of the video’s stance against middle eastern wars has about as much relevance as my shoe size, None. and you obviously have the liberal/democrat stance confused as to how they feel about the wars.. And fox news, as in blatantly spreading? lies in machine gun fashion with no care whether it’s right.

    I would love one to start my healthy lifestyle. I'm struggling to get started and need some thing to use to help me. As a mom of three energetic boys, I Need to be there for them. I would love to have one! Thanks
