Yep, just sat here for 11 straight hours in a word document.

Today, I very diligently worked in the design document, in a variety of areas, including: organization, item listing, making a lot of data tables, finer feature details, but mostly just organization. I don't want to be too detailed about it because there are some cooler features that I have detailed, but cannot promise that they will be in the game.

Someone did something bad to me recently. I can't be specific about it because it could bite me in the ass later. I am pretty sure this person is reading this, and don't worry, this person is not a fan. I'd like to leave a message for this person.

To whom it may concern,
I know what you did (this Summer!). I've been a good fellow to you, and for you to stab me in the back...for you to conjure up a reason to make me your enemy... It's not right. You and I make our own morals. One thing I had hoped to impart to you was to be good to strangers. I know, I haven't been perfect myself, far from it, but I've changed since then. I know things aren't going exactly peachy for you, and I want to hope that you did this as a last resort, but you can't let hardships corrupt you. Things are tough for me too, but I'm not gonna stab you back. Damn. And to think that I wanted to be friends with you again! It's not even the stab that hurt me... it's the cold realization that we could never be good friends again. That's something I hoped for, for so long.

I had to stop it. I didn't have a choice. It's out of my control now. Be careful.

Robin Williams is dead. He was in the first movie I ever saw in a theater, Aladdin. He was great in Birdcage. He died by suicide. IMO, he probably had a legitimate reason for suicide. Y'know how I rate my efficiency every hour, I also rate my life from time to time. It's a fun question to ask other people too, say "How would you rate the previous year of your life, out of 10?"...

So for a while, it used to be a 5, even though I was pretty depressed. I couldn't justify bringing it any lower than 5 because of the material things I had to be thankful for. I mean, take a look, some third world countries would really really suck to live in. How could I be more depressed than a 5 if I've never faced such third world hardships? But people can have legitimate depression that doesn't stem from one's health or financial situation. When I realized that I was so depressed that I constantly considered suicide daily, that's when I knew my life was a 2. I've never been at risk for suicide. As much as I wanted to do it, my resolve to finish this game has always been higher.

I don't know what Mr. Williams's source of depression was, but I'm willing to bet it was a justified suicide. I'll define a justified suicide as having met these requirements:
1. The suicidee's belief system or lack thereof allows it.
2. The suicidee must be sane.
3. The suicidee must believe that the combined average of the rest of their life would equate to a rating of under 5. If a rating of 5 means that you're neither happy or unhappy, than anything under 5 is at least somewhat unhappy, and that's not really a life worth living if it persists. I'm allowing for this suicidee to simply believe what the future holds rather than know, which is kind of shaky. I mean, what if a POW was being tortured every day, but he had a small chance of being rescued very soon? You could argue that the POW was not justified, that he should have held on a little longer, and we could attribute his failure to his willpower. Perhaps his willpower was not as strong as his fellow theoretical POW that did manage to survive, but to me, it's enough to say that suicide was a reasonable option, ergo justified.

Seeya Mr. Williams. I hope you had a good run...and I really hope this wasn't just some sort of drug related death, hehe.
