it’s been a pretty damn good week i have to say.
i finally got to see bon iver live, and it was great. he played all the songs i really wanted to hear (re:stacks alone on guitar and the entire crowd singing alone to skinny love?… yes please!). it was interesting seeing him perform with such a big band, and enjoying it so much. i think it would have been easy for him to just continue on the single dude with guitar-path and still sell out but he pushes himself.
you got to admire that to some extent.
on top of that, it’s been exceptional weather here in SF lately … like best kind of summer in sweden kind of weather. all i really miss is being able to head out to a nearby lake and take a swim.
but at least i’ve been able to wear shorts and eat ice cream in the sun. even take unintentional naps up on my roof. i think my legs are still in somewhat of a shock.
look at those pale fuckers.
work has also run smoothly this week. i managed to solve 2 issues on one of my freelance projects, and made great progress on the second one. now i’m almost at the point where i can turn it to the dude that will make the next step work.
a impromptu review at cup-a-joe today cleared most of the work, just minor adjustments left.
on top of that … the final review book is shaping up … i have a goal to have it finished for printing by the middle of next week. there might be a few sleepless nights ahead, but as long as work rolls on like this, i think i might be good.
i just really wanna pass, and get going on to whatever.
and oh yeah … my parents are coming to see the graduation. soooo … no pressure at all y’know. no pressure at all.
i’m gonna sleaze out a little bit more now.
i’ve earned it.
i just had vegetarian buffalo wings. which is a really confusing thing. because i can see what they are trying to achieve, i can see the shape, i can feel the resistance of whatever is in it when i grab one … but there’s something f-cking wrong with it.
one could say eating vegetarian buffalo wings is the equivalent of watching hologram-tupac. it reminds you of the real deal, and it has all the right features … but what it all boils down to is that it’s not even close to as good as the real thing. and you know it with every bone in your body, no matter how much you would like to pretend.
on top of all of this, i’m kinda stressing out about getting my final book ready … my computer is bit by bit falling apart (and no damn update from apple on the 2012 ones). photoshop now takes around 5 minutes to start and god forbid me if i start loading in heavy files. my keyboard has completely given up so i had to buy a external so i could keep writing.
on top of that … i was stupid enough to do 200 lunges on saturday and my ass has been hurting ever since. i’m walking as if i’m butt-hurt …
it’s just … messy right now. i’m going to have to lock myself into the apartment and work round the clock for this combined with work and freelance projects.
oh well … back to the lab i guess. no good comes out of complaining too much.
idag kl 11 avslutade jag mitt första jobb som frilansare här i usa. en kompis till en kollega har en ganska lyckad app på android market och nu tänker de lansera i app store och ville göra om deras app-ikon så den såg finare ut när den dyker upp på iphone skärmen. typiskt nog efter ca 50 olika förslag har han för stunden tagit den design jag tyckte minst om haha. men jag har lärt mig att ibland får man helt enkelt stå tillbaka och låta kunden göra sitt. vissa litar på dig, andra kommer in med en bild i huvudet av hur saker och ting ska vara, och hur du än ser det vara bättre på andra sätt, så drar de ändå dit de själva vill. ett steg i taget. men en liten bonus till dator-sparandet blev. vilket är ganska bra för som ni vid det här laget märkt så har min enter-tangent slutat fungera, och ja, jag tänker fan fortsätta skriva såhär bara för att envist stå emot det oundvikliga (att mina dator sakta men säkert faller isär). nåja, det får väl bli såhär ett tag. eller så får jag kommunicera mitt liv genom sketcher alt enbart en kort mening. kan bli instressant.
