53 - Shouting into the internet
So I’m feeling pretty good about my current schedule, just need to make sure I keep doing it almost every day. I guess things will change once I get a job but till then might as well try to get work on my game done. As you guys know, even if I get a job, I’m going to keep working on my game and my plan is to release it and peace out of america. I’ll admit I’m still bummed about not getting that job I’ve interviewed for. Also I’m not getting contacted by any jobs I’ve applied for and I haven't heard back from any recruiters I’ve talked too. Oh well, I just have to keep working on my game and apply to jobs. When I woke up today I thought it would be a good idea to call my wife, since she works swing shifts, I wanted to call her before she had work. It was nice to talk to her, I really miss her, that might be the hardest part about this whole thing. She pretty much has to always be working or watching our kid. There isn’t much I can do about it though besides keep trying to get a job so I can move us to a new apartment or something. While I don’t feel guilty about having fun with my roommates because I can’t do anything about what she is doing now, I wish she could be having fun too. Last night I ended up talking with my roommate/landlord about magic the gathering, and jeez that game is crazy. I’ve always liked the idea of card games, they seem fun, and I’ve played a few casually here and there. My biggest problem is the randomness of it, all card games I mean. No obviously having a good deck and being good can help lower the effects of randomness, but sometimes you are just boned. But he has a bunch of decks just lying around so I might play some magic with him just for fun. Also all 3 of us might start doing a movie night, so that could be fun. Writing these blogs have been weird for me. I’ve been having fun but it’s kinda like I’m shouting my life at the internet and just seeing how people react. I know a few people from analytics are reading it, but it’s all weird. It would be nice if more people were reading it, as I’ve said before I’m an entertainer at heart. If my blog makes people smile every now and then, or I can put a funny twist on something bad that happened and get a laugh out of people, that makes me feel pretty good. It’s the same thing with streaming, but that has the added benefit that people might learn something, at least the dev streams. I guess as long as I enjoy it I just will keep doing it and at some point people will pick up on it. Well I think that’s all for today, but I’ll leave you with something kinda funny. Let me know if you want to hear a bit more about this. It took me a few years to learn about 9/11 I’m not going to go into any details, but yeah, that happened. Anyways I’m off to shower and get ready for my stream, hope you guys are having a good day.
