I have been up to a whole lot of no good lately.
I did not <a href="http://acm.cs.rpi.edu/~cory/projects/Chalk/">chalk</a> nearly as much as I would have liked to, but a friend and I did manage to decorate the sidewalk outside the DCC with Mario, Luigi, and Link.
To recap, this semester was very full of game-making. I had a blast working on all of these projects, learned a lot from them all, and probably wasted too much time playing around with every one.

I have a new game in the making, now. I will be sure to provide details as things develop.
I have only gotten good surprises, grade-wise, which is to say that my mobile robotics grade was higher than I expected based on some of my early grades in the class, and the rest were good.
I am spending the first half of the summer in a really nice apartment furnished just about right for me from a friend who had to leave town before the lease expired. After that I will be back in my RPI closet.
Today was my first day back at work. It started something like this.
<ul> <li><i>6:00 AM</i> - wake up</li> <li><i>6:01 AM</i> - fall back asleep</li> <li><i>8:00 AM</i> - alarm goes off</li> <li><i>9:00 AM</i> - wake up</li> <li><i>9:01 AM</i> - oh crap, I'm going to be late</li> <li><i>9:30 AM</i> - oh crap, I'm early</li> </ul>
After that, it was good to see lots of familiar faces and to start figuring out what is going on with my project.
This update was brought to you by "death" macaroni (macaroni and lots of cheddar cheese) and those cookie dough rolls which yield cookies when dropped in an oven for a dozen minutes.
