An updating computer greatly limited the time I spent on this project. Even though I am sure I set it to update in the middle of the night, it for some reason chose to start updating during lunch, and I lost 8 hours.

I'm proud that I was able to simulate gravity and momentum on the game.
I learned that planning ahead of time is a very good thing to do. When I woke up today, I wrote psuedo script for the rest of my code which I wasn't finished with. Although I didn't finish it, I went a lot faster than I did yesterday.
I am planning to expand on Big Brain Run, and implement the features that I actually intended to put in, such as spikes, scrolling, enemies, and questions to appear when activating certain game mechanics.
