I think what frustrates people the most about their physical fitness goals is when the focus is on an ideal end goal. From my experience, when I focus too much on losing a certain amount of weight or looking a certain way, I’ll be more likely to give up. I’ll miss seeing how my stomach has toned because I’m too focused on the remaining belly fat. The problem is there aren’t immediate results in fitness.
World-building is merely window-dressing for storytelling. While it certainly is important to loosely understand genealogical, socio-political, and geographical backgrounds within our stories, we are telling stories via subjectively relaying communication rather than objectively deducing science, so the focus should be on the point of these stories. My ambitious project, “The Story,” is about a few topics including overcoming adversities. Considering this more specific topic, would one of Trishna’s great-great-great-grandparents be thematically relevant to the narrative?

How many movies per year do you watch? If my RYM movie tags are as accurate as I think they are, I’ve seen 11 feature-length movies since starting Better Zombie in August 2016. Watching less than six movies per year means there isn’t much of a point for me to own an extensive movie collection, especially if I’m planning to live in apartments for the next few years. Just keep the essentials and sell the rest… right?
Our only limitation is our willingness to tolerate adversity toward achieving new opportunities. If something is difficult, but we see it as a necessary step, we’ll do it. If not, we won’t. Most characters in “The Story” have some ambition. It’s the varying degrees of how much adversity they’re willing to tolerate that makes it interesting. John [left] and Trishna [right] have higher thresholds for tolerating adversity to achieve opportunities than, say, Sammohini or Jane.

It’s alive! After months of preparation for our booth at the PAX Seattle Indies Expo 2018, and receiving klamorously positive feedback from game-likers and educators alike, the Keyboard Kommandos took a well-deserved break. Now, we’re back! Since our October build of Keyboard Kommander will primarily focus on back-end material, let’s focus on the most noticeable additions: KeyboardKommander.com will be our central communication hub for news, updates on various aspects of development, including, our story mode plans!
Fitness is a scholarly activity. You don’t start off your career with a senior-level title, the ability to effectively convey emotion or information, or the psychological wherewithal to cut issues “off at the pass” before they become bigger in any career. Why, then, do we assume we can magically become fit? Maybe it’s because we assume studying for months and years is only for college and careers? What if we, similarly, studied our physical health?
The cabin of the mid-sized furniture moving truck was nearly uncomfortably chilly on that sweltering Evillian afternoon. The slow traffic moved at a reasonable pace. The passenger, Jane, had her black jeans crossed so she could prop up a technical book about computers, while the driver, Jakov, kept one eye on the road while maintaining eye contact with the other eye.
“That reminds me of this awesome idea I have for the videogame.”
I wonder if I became so overweight because of the amount of food I ate? I don’t think my weight loss was entirely due to my fitness. It helps. There’s a sense of self-control that comes from remembering you’re going to be exercising later, and after you’ve exercised, my body instinctively wants better foods. The problem might have been consuming too much food because even eating too much good food can be bad for you.
The anxiety shot through my back and up the left side of my neck like I’d tweaked a vital vertebra. My heart rate increased. Thoughts narrowed. Not this again! Why? It’s a feeling you never want, but once you’ve experienced it, it’s easy to reign the control back. That near-panic attack is just like overexerting yourself in rigorous physical fitness: the more you push yourself through your hardships, the more you can handle other hardships.
“The Story” is a thorough commentary on reality. The series of fiction tales will explore the grime and glitter of our reality – what happens, what should happen, and what should not happen – from multiple perspectives, starting with Sammohini and Jane and concluding with our main characters John [left] and Trishna [right]. John and Trishna start college and join their college’s Accessibility Rights Club, participating most in the ARC’s Artistic Development Events. Here’s what they’ll find:
