The past 10 days

11:41 PM

I still remember back in 2007 when I was in 7th grade, on IMDB there was this pending page for the movie the Hobbit and it said it was expected to be released in 2011. Back in 2007, the year 2011 felt like it was such a long time away. It felt like it would take an eternity to get there. Well 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, and eventually 2011 all went by really fast in the blink of an eye before I even realized it. The Hobbit movie wouldn't actually come out until 2012, but yeah those 4 years went by instantly.

What was I getting at? That even if something seems far off, like the year 2030, it will be here before we know it.

It's been over a year since the launch of the the James Webb space telescope. It may have been in 2016 or 2017 when I first heard about it, maybe even 2015? Maybe the launch was supposed to be scheduled for 2017? I don't remember, all I know is that the James Webb space telescope launch was something I was looking forward to back then, similar to how the Hobbit film would come out in the distant future, and now it's here. Looking at the images taken by the JWST, I'm not so impressed.

Honestly I thought the JWST images would be extremely remarkable. I mean the Hubble space telescope was launched in 1990, back when our digital technology was far inferior to today. Our technology has basically advanced a trillion fold since then, and the JWST was going to be like 3 times as large as the Hubble and made with gold and it would have all the modern technology today. And so I thought we were going to have groundbreaking images that we could never have imagined basically, but after looking at them, they're basically the same, they're basically Hubble images but in much higher quality and more colors, but the same everything else. Like Jupiter still looks like Jupiter, but probably in higher quality and more colors. I really wasn't impressed.

I mean yeah to launch the JWST took the best engineering and scientist minds of our time. I wonder how they organized it all? I mean it's so crazy. Who was the director of the project that was able to organize such a crazy thing? Managing people and managing projects is a hard task on its own.

So I've been on Twitter a lot lately, and I have been tweeting a bunch. I have 200 followers on Twitter as of today and that was nice accomplishment I'd say. Like that was so hard to get. I didn't ask anyone to follow me or whatever nor did I do any follow backs, it was all organic growth and I don't know how to get that many followers again to be honest. I really don't. My tweets have around 2 million views now, and I have had a thousand comments and replies, like tens of thousands of likes, and sometimes someone will follow me out of nowhere.

What's really stupid is that there are websites that sell followers, so you can buy 100,000 followers, maybe even 1,000,000 followers for like $50? I don't know because I never checked any of these prices or whatever, but Elon Musk doesn't disallow it. What's messed up is you can buy that many followers and set them on someone else and that'll just screw up their account. I call it bot setting where you set like 50,000 bots to follow someone. I mean it boosts their follower count which you can argue is a good thing, but they won't get engagement that's expected of 50,000 followers so people will notice that they botted their followers and their posts will probably get less views and less attention because a very small percent of their followers are engaging with them.

Anyway some more event happened in the the past 10 days. I flew back to Puerto Rico on Tuesday I think, I don't even remember. And I wrote new song lyrics during that whole flight. I had this entire row on the airplane and yeah I wrote a song while up there. When I landed, I hired someone to sing it, and the final version should be out tomorrow. I'm still in love with Wahl and I wrote the song with her as my muse.

I finished this one problem for a client that I've been having. Man sometimes the things they ask me to do, I don't know how to do it, but I figure it out somehow. How am I able to figure it out? Especially since it's been like a year or two since I was fully serious and dedicated to that client's project, so I don't fully remember it now. I used to be a master of it back then, like I could do anything with it, but not now.

I didn't do much in Virginia for the past 10 days to be honest. It was kinda boring. I just stayed at home and browsed the Internet basically.

My life is so boring. I think I need to write daily again because I miss out on so many details, but yeah I am fasting again starting tomorrow. Let's go!!

Anyway that was my day today.
