Life Lessons

I’m writing this with hope that someone will learn from my past experiences and mistakes so they don’t have to repeat my errors. Just maybe they’ll get a little further ahead in life then I will.
(Will Be updated frequently)

1. God is the exception to every rule.

2. Learn from other people’s mistakes. Chances are you will make the same mistakes most people make. It will save you time if you learn their lessons ahead of time.

3. Make peace with the fact that you will eventually die, everyone and everything you love will eventually die and that everything you do in life is ultimately pointless.

4. There is hope. If you think about it, our own existence is impossible, so our own logical understanding is flawed. There is a possibility that we can live forever. Me? I believe God exists, because it’s the only thing that makes sense.

5. Existence is pain, so start learning to enjoy pain.

6. In this existence money is power.

7. Money is just a tool. Never fall in love with money.

8. Learn to love pointless things.

9. Do what makes you money before pursuing what you love.

10. Life will never be fair.

11. You aren’t special.

12. Stop looking for purpose to your life. Chances are, it doesn’t exist.

13. If you want something work hard for it.

14. Never take pills for removing acne. It will rid you of acne, but it will fuck with your eye’s oil glands and make your eyes dry for the rest of your life. (Blepharitis)

15. You don’t always get to choose the outcome of your actions, or even life.

16. Relationships require more than love, and, more often than not, your love partner will be a heartless bitch.

17. People will never be perfect.

18. Lower your expectations and you’ll never be disappointed.

19. Don’t expect to always be happy.

20. Control your emotions so they don’t control you.

21. Math is important. (Relatively speaking)

22. Decide for yourself what is important and remember that it’s only important for as long as you believe it’s important.

23. Stop caring about the opinions of others. Only care about what you think about yourself.

24. You will always have exactly as much value as every other person that exists.

25. Being able to connect with people and the ability to convince people to follow your plans adds their value to yours making the plan more valuable and more likely to succeed.

26. If you demand something, without hesitation, you can sometimes trick people into thinking you have the authority to make that call.

27. In some situations no one has authority to make a decision. Speak up, make a decision and they will most often go with it.

28. Even if someone has authority over you, call them out on their bullshit. You will most likely not be fired.

29. Take reasonable risks

30. If you don’t risk being fired to call out injustices you will never get anywhere and you’ll have to suffer through all the bullshit.

31. Never sign papers at work when you are in trouble. (Even if you did what the paper says) If they force you to write a signature make sure to write “Signature acknowledges receipt only” before you write your signature. (You can even write “I didn’t do this" in the comments if you like.) Leaving a paper trail like that can only hinder your ability to do your job and, most importantly, make money.

32. Learn about nutrition. The healthier you are the longer you live and the higher quality the life you have.

33. Get proper exercise. Longer and better quality of life, plus the added bonus of teaching yourself to enjoy pain.

34. Learning the basics of cooking is essential for any person.

Last minute update!!! I'm getting married on the 8th of this month. Website activity has grinded to a halt because of that and because I'm working on a text-based game that is like Pok'emon. It's being coded in javascript and node.js. (Still putting the C++ game on the backburner). Hopefully I'll realize my dreams of making a video game where people around the world can battle for real money. Here's hoping I can stay focused enough to make it happen! I will eventually get around to making new comics, I promise. Hoping sometime around August. I do have several prototype comics writen down after all. The wedding is at Saint Anthony's church in Fredericton at 1pm on July 8th if anyone out there wants to come. Look forward to resumed website activity soon(ish)!

It's finally finished, that thing that you didn't even know I was doing. I made the ultimate MMO and posted it to the site today. As you can see, there is a new silver login/register box on the side of the site. Sign up on up, login and click the games button from the menu to see what it's all about. (No it's not the C++ game)

All My Pixels will be undergoing some major changes in the next few months. This comic is a collection of my thoughts, feelings and sense of humour. Basically the essence of me. Since this is the nature of my work, drastic changes in my life change the outcome of my work because I base a lot of my work on real life experiences. I encourage everyone to join me on this new adventure and I sincerely hope you enjoy yourselves. ^_^

Hello everybody! I have recently added a rant section to my site, so I can share my opinions with all of you. Mostly because certain things irritate me and i want the world to know. I look forward to all the interesting emails I will receive because of it.

I've been putting the comics on hold, yet again, to focus on learning C++ so I can code a video game. I probably should update the news section more than I have, and since I have just updated the site to make it easier to post news I just might. All of the data from my harddrive loss has either been recovered or recreated. Figured I should probably throw that out there. Learning to code a video game has been progressing fairly slowly, but I am making some decent progress. I imagine I'll post another comic when I get a chance or when I get around to making game graphics, since I'm going to be using a similar art style for the game. Thank you all for your support. I'll try to wrap this project up as fast as I can, but no guarantees it won't take a while.

Finally have a new comic posted. Well technically it's an older comic I just modified to fit into the new style frames. School is coming to a close and once I have found a job it will be easier to make comics. However, I do have some bad news. My harddrive destroyed itself a while ago erasing most of my artwork for the comic, so I have been scrambling around trying to recover as much as i can. Unfortionatly it might take a while to get set back up and running. Thank you for your patience in this matter.

As some of you may have realized, I haven't been posting that many new comics. That's because I'm currently studying at NBCC to be an electrician. I will still try to post a comic every once in a while whenever I'm not busy with school work (Which is hardly ever).

Welcome to the grand opening of Mekeninzo Underground. From here on out I'm going to do my best to add a new comic every Monday. Come on in, pull up a chair and enjoy a good laugh.
