Everything I need to know in life, I learned from Tetris.

If I can get tetrises, that’s great; if I can’t, I don’t let it bother me. If I don’t get the pieces I need, or if a couple of gaps creep into the board, I don’t get angry and slam on the “Quit” key, like I might have in the past.

The downward spiral.

The problem with an extended period of unemployment is that I’ve spent so much time introspecting that it’s become repetitive: I find myself going through cycles of possible life plans.
