Letter to Action – Script 3.0

I write this not just in frustration but in a mix of thrill at the challenge thrown at me by you.

Surely, you can’t deny my love for you.

Or how else would one explain the rationale behind the time I’ve devoted to you.

All this months and still counting.

Poring through tons of texts even if to grab a basic comprehension of your syntax, libraries etc.

Online, offline through hardcopies, softcopies to videos, I’ve stayed glued to you.

Even when my eyes strained under the effects of lengthy glares at the monitor, I’ve remained unmoved telling loved ones it’d be better to enter nirvana with less parts than whole body dwell in the abyss.

 

All this for fun?

Well, I’ve had and still do have fun but the reality of the present times, you know better.

Still in pursuit of the Holy Grail. You know; that which is supposed to keep body and soul together;

That which without I’m left with little strength to devote to you.

True, the times have been unfair.

I shoulda relaxed on you when after 6 months, I hit it with the last job.

I too thought I’d at least found something to show for our mutual commitments.

But in the end, it was neither my fault as it wasn’t yours.

The reality of the environment we live in simply played out.

And I did what was honourable: moved on.

 

Thus, on I have moved and at this point, you bare your fangs throwing exceptions at every line of my codes.

I’ve just about had it with you. This has to end and it’s tonight AS3!

You tell me you’re only trying to pass a message for me to hit the brakes.

That I should be quick to recall the times I’ve been in same situation only to go to bed and come back with the solutions.

True, I agree but again, time’s not on my side anymore. Besides, who are you to call the shots?

Hey, man wrote you and you’re nothing but ones and zeroes! Freaking bytes! Maths at its very basic!

You say I didn’t even pay for this software and that it’s illegal.

Yeah but the internet connection with which I tracked your sorry free unliving self was paid for by someone: hello!

And was it I who had you up for sharing on Isohunt?

 

Tonight’s the night. Either you or me.

I can’t believe you’re not seeing reasons to my argument.

How can you be oblivious to the demands on me with tons of stuffs to do?

Or have you forgotten the plans to deploy you to the third screen

with Android providing the stage we’ve always dreamt of.

Or would you rather I go back to your granny from Oracle whom the world respects over you?

Well, hear this! I’m definitely picking him up again. I even heard JSE7.0 is out!!!

Lol…Yeah, now, you’re going red!

 

See, tonight, we’re riding into the morning.

Yeah, I’m slugging it out with you. No sleep until you start compiling enough lines for me to get off this stage.

What’s the motivation besides time you ask?

See, I’m tired of the nightmares with bugs dominating my sleep.

And just so you know, I’m going far from here,

far from the well laid out bed with whom you’ve connived to lure me to sleep

only to haunt me through the night.

I’m seeing you off tonight.

It’s on now!

  1. Interesting. I assume you’re talking about your love for a particular software…??

    Nice.

    1. Seun the style and tone is so much like yours. Not content O°˚˚˚!,
      I thought it was you until I checked the name.

  2. hehehe I know the feeling, it takes a lot of patience and careful observation. Its nice resorting to writting when the frustration comes.

    I never liked websites built with flash. Loading such pages is difficult on a slow network due to its memory size and a greate number of people can’t afford a fast network. Hence my dislike for Actionscript. Unless you use it for animation, thats the only place I see its advantages. But pardon my curiousity. You are into phone or system?

    Nice work…

  4. Ah! haba, don’t mind the double comment ooo- network wahala and I also meant writing not writting.

  5. I’m guessing you’re a programmer. I believe a certain leve, of creativity is necessary in that field the same as in writing. Keep your head up.

    1. Hello Myne,
      Good to have you comment on my post for the first time. Still looking to make one of your weekly picks. Anyways, there’s enough encouragement here to keep sneaking in these write-ups.
