Recent News With Me

People have been asking about ProSonic lately, and with that in mind I decided to go ahead and do a full update on my life at this point.

First off, ProSonic was supposed to have a Windows release in September, which got delayed to October. In case you didn't notice, that didn't happen either. The truth is I made a promise to a group working on another project you may have heard of called Sonic 2 HD. I decided I really had to keep my promise to them and do what I said I would do. So lately, I've been programming an editing utility for that project.

That's the reason I haven't been discussing ProSonic lately. I'd like to have ProSonic released for Windows (and perhaps Linux) before the end of the year. I can't promise that will happen, but I'll try for it. My main concern behind ProSonic is quality. I want to make sure it's truly ready to be released. I've been scared of deadlines since last year's release when I took a huge amount of flack for that release. I'd like to avoid that this time around.

In other news, I got a job at a grocery store as a cashier back in October. It took a while for it to become official due to a few complications, but I'm working the lines now. It's a lot to learn, but I'm getting better each and every day. The pay isn't the best, but I'm happy to have a job regardless.

Outside of work, I recently applied to Shepherd University. The only step I haven't taken is to send my official transcripts from my community college (which I'm expecting in the mail within days.) I'm hoping to be able to start there in the spring if the time frame works out (assuming they accept me.) If they don't, maybe I'll get accepted elsewhere, but Shepherd is where I'm most interested in continuing my education. I am also looking into some student loans which I will need to pay my way. Since I'm out of state, it will be way too expensive to pay for right now.

Finally, this isn't as important as the other stuff I mentioned, but I figured I'd put it out there anyway -- I got a haircut today. The lady who did my hair was obviously trying to pitch a sale, but I decided to take the bait anyway and had her put highlights in my hair. I have to say, I have never had anyone put as much effort into my hair as she seemed to do. She did a terrific job on it, and if she's still at the same place the next time I need a haircut, I think I would definitely consider having her do my hair again. I really like it.

That is all there is to say about me at the moment. I'll post more when some new stuff comes up!
