Update user profiles and added a notification system, bad smoke run, played punch club

23:35 (of Monday, March 16th 2020)

Not much really happened today. I woke up at around 8 AM or so, I worked on adding user creations to their profile such as journal entries, photos, and their to do items. It didn't take that long to add but it was a very useful feature that was missing.

Not going to write about how, but I fell asleep again around 12 PM and basically just passed out. When I woke up, I was a bit drowsy, ate a lot of food, drank a lot of water. And then I was having this conversation with another user named Achaius, who likes to put up pictures of Pokemon Go, inside one of his journals. It was inconvenient for me to have to go in the Public Journals page and then manually see if any new comments were posted on his entry, because there were no notifications or anything. So I was like, that would be a cool feature to add, except I didn't really know how to add such a feature at first.

Well I didn't think it would be that hard to add. It's pretty cool how some websites do it though, you just type in a name with an @ symbol in front, and then they get notifications that they were tagged. It's pretty universal that the @ is used for tagging people. I just brainstormed some ways this could possibly done, and then I was like, yeah, it doesn't seem that hard. So I went to work, and got that feature done around 6:30 PM. It took several hours of working on it non-stop, most of the work was just about thinking about how to do it. It isn't that hard now that I know how to do it obviously, but it was just figuring it out from scratch at the time. After publishing it, I went out for a run.

Ugh, the run. This run today was terrible. It was a pretty good evening outside, the sun was still out, but man there was so much pollution outside. Sure I have to run on the sidewalk, so there's a lot of cars passing by making lots of noise and I'm breathing in their fumes. That's not the bad part. The bad part was when I would run next to some houses, and they were barbecuing. It's not enough they have to kill some animals for food and contribute massively to global warming, they have to pollute the air with smoke too. I wouldn't mind if I were walking, but since I was gasping for breath each step I took, my body and lungs utilized this smoke filled air instead of clean fresh air. I ran next to maybe five different neighborhoods, and three of them had this barbeque smell going on.

I actually turned around and started running back as soon as I hit the first neighborhood that had this smoke going on, but then I took a different route on the return thinking less cars would be here so it would be less noisy and crowded. Well I passed by two other neighborhoods in this route and then boom; smoke, smoke, smoke, the entire run back.

When I got back to my neighborhood it wasn't over! Some neighbors were smoking so I had to walk through that. And then some neighbors were taking a hot shower with a lot of shampoo smell going out their air vents, which smelled really nice, but I knew it was damaging to my lungs. So walking to my home I had hurting lungs, and then I breathed some people smoking outside and then freaking shampoo shower smell. This actually wouldn't be so bad, if I wasn't already panting for breath on the way home, so I'm panting for breath and I'm only getting the worst quality air.

When I got back home I just drank a lot of water, and then I played some Punch Club again. I got my guy to 18 agility and he was able to destroy all his opponents mainly through just blocking and countering. He was so freaking overpowered. I think I could actually clear the entire game at this level. He was able to clear through basically all his opponents this way, became champion of the rookie tournament, cleared the yellow zone in underground fighting, and it wasn't very hard at all. It felt very grindy though. I spent like 5 hours playing this game, until I fell asleep at around 1 AM later that night.
