So I’m pretty exhausted at work right now. After this long weekend of staying up until 5am every night, I’m finding it difficult to go to sleep on time. I have to get up at 530 to beat the morning DC traffic so going to bed at midnight may not seem late for some, but for me it’s a day ruiner. It was worth it though.
I finished coding the notification bar and have thus completed the last element of the UI. It looks really cool when the bar pops down from the top of the screen to let you know you’ve done something notable (good or bad). I mocked up some achievements and insults to be displayed and it’s quite hilarious when the red bar comes down saying something like “Only your mom thinks you’re special” or “You messed THAT up?!” Even though I wrote it, the taunting still somehow gets under my skin and I find myself wanting to prove the computer (and therefore myself) wrong. I know, it kind of makes me a crazy person.
