Living the Good Life, Episode 24 (March 10, 2017 ): Gravity and Tyranny!

Yet another nice week! Feels good man 8) WATCHAN: Gravity Rush: Overture. This was a very small OVA (2 parts totaling about 20 minutes) released before Gravity Rush 2. I said last week I wasn’t sure how Kat (the protagonist of Gravity Rush and Gravity Rush 2) ended up in the new area she’s in […]

Whew! As promised, my friends, I have a very meaty entry for you today! I’ve done a big writeup on why my 2nd draft of my dissertation took so long, and what I learned from it. Before I get to that, though, here’s what I’ve been doing for fun this week: I’ve been eating out […]

Gunlord’s Dissertation Saga, Episode 31 (Season 2): Grinding My Gears

Ugh. Ugh ugh ugh ugh ugh. Still haven’t finished up chapter 1. Partially, this is motivation: It’s gotten so much warmer that I’ve been spending more time outside eating and enjoying myself. But partially it’s because the act of reorganizing the chapter seems to be like a “one step forward, two steps back” sort of […]
