Another week has come and gone. Monday through Thursday of this week I had mandatory C++ training, something all engineers at the studio have to go through. I came into the class with really low expectations but was pleasantly surprised — the teacher was really good and the material was pretty interesting. However, it was for 7 hours a day (3 in the morning, 4 in the afternoon,) which was brutal. I had a really hard time focusing the entire time. Of course, I don’t think I can focus on anything for 7 hours a day; I could be learning about how to create puppies that poop $20 bills, but I still would get sleepy. So in a valiant attempt to battle my C++ sleepiness, I decided to try the new energy drink Bawls. (Hee hee… “bawls”…) Boy did it taste bad, but it kept me awake, so I had it two days in a row. Plus it has a cool blue bottle.
Tonight I’m going to see Michelle Branch in SF, and tomorrow I’m going to Big Game, which we are sure to lose. Should be a fun weekend.
