Uncharted Territory

Hey all,

I don't know if anybody is reading this but I hope somebody is. I ended up getting an iPad Air 2 64 GB (Wi-Fi). If I need to use cellular, I'll tether it to my phone. All in all, I love it. In some ways, I've used it more than expected so that's nice.

Life is going ok. I've adjusted to my team lead leaving but there's still apprehension in filling the void he leaves. But as he leaves, our group has never gotten along better. I think we're trying to cherish as much time together as we can. But the last few days at work have been a ton of fun. I found out my brother is coming to Houston, but his girlfriend isn't. Her car broke down and she's trying to save money for her trip to Vietnam. I tried convincing her to come but she didn't seem to want to listen and was upset I was doing that. I'm not sure I understand. She already bought the tickets, so it's essentially a sunk cost, but unfortunately it seems like she's made up her mind. So it'll just be the family...but I feel like Christmas is going to go very badly this year without her around.

I am super excited for video game Indiana Jones ripoff, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, and I was super happy to see gameplay footage. The combat looks so dynamic! More verticality, the ability to sneak around in combat, and more tools at your disposal. The design also looks marvelous. So many options of combat. Visually, it looks gorgeous, but not as beautiful as the teaser suggested back in May. But if you know how much I love Nolan, I love the developer Naughty Dog nearly just as much if you can believe it.



So a few things...

I mentioned recently that my friend, and currently team leader of my workgroup is leaving in a couple weeks. I'm still a bit shell shocked as again I felt he had so much to teach me over the next few months. Not only is he moving to a new position, but he's moving to Dallas, so I've lost a valuable friend and co-worker. I was able to work through it today and put it off my mind. It's in the back of my head, but I think I'm adjusting. Maybe it won't be so bad.

I also bought an iPad Air today. It came with a $100 gift card to Target. The only problem is that it's 16 GB, not 32 GB like I wanted. I want to watch movies on the thing while I head to Vietnam. This might be a problem. I'm gonna try and swap it down the road for a 32 GB and see if Target is nice enough to let me keep the gift card. Any advice on that possibility? Anyways, my other purchase for Black Friday is get my mother a cheap computer. Recently I hurt her by saying her computer troubles were not my problem, so I felt like to make it up for her, I'll buy her a new computer.

I'm going to see Interstellar on Friday and also catch the Star Wars trailer that will be online. But I kinda wanna see it in theaters just to see the reaction. I need to regain my honor and see Interstellar at least THREE more times so it can match the viewings of Inception and the Dark Knight. That's a lot of tears to come.

Have a happy and safe Thanksgiving. Also let me know if you have any thoughts on my iPad situation.
