This is a cross post of my CC21 (Cemetech Contest 21) thread. (I know a lot of you guys don't look over there that often, so I'm posting it over here
I'm going to create a "days-off-from-school" Simulator, because days off from school are usually on or around holidays.
I plan on having a Google Docs-esque screen, where you cask write out the essays you inevitably were assigned right before the break started. Your "work" meter goes up, but so does your "boredom" meter.
You can also switch over to a sublime text-esque screen, or a Cemetech SAX-esque screen, where your work meter doesn't move, but your boredom meter goes down and you get "coolness points".
I plan on doing this in pure BASIC, with no picture variables. I like pushing limits, as you probably know.
I also plan on including the adorable
Anywho, here's some eye candy!

I thought I'd post this too:

Typing of the essay:
You can view the sublime text editor by switching tabs with the right arrow. If you are in the sublime text editor, you can switch tabs left again with the left arrow.
I'm not releasing the code for the code-typing just yet. I'm not fully done optimizing it
You can download the file, screenshots, and source and suggest changes (this particular contest allows collaboration) on my GitHub repo
I also recommend checking out my Cemetech thread
. There are some minor details that I didn't include here in the interest of a short-ish post.
