“If you don’t stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it.”
I thought the last month would be focused on schoolwork and graduation. Instead, I ended up focusing on schoolwork, graduation, networking and socializing. Those last two are jobs in and of themselves, I swear!
Now, what have we been up to this past month and a half (wow, has it really been that long)?:
General: Wow, what a rollercoaster of events. Between trips to Huntington Beach, Santa Ana, Las Vegas for NAB 2019, and so much more, I haven’t really gotten much done, outside of schoolwork. But that’s okay! I think it’s time I took some time to enjoy life. I consider the last month an extended Spring Break, and I refuse to regret a single moment. I met a lot of faces, accepted a lot of business cards and had a lot of drinks with unfamiliar folk… erm, scratch that last part.
School: A reminder to update my Capstone page soon, because that project is over! On to the next quarter, where I’m tackling analysis of algorithms and network cryptology, on top of my last language quarter for Latin. Needless to say, I have a lot of reading to do. And, there is another new project in the works…
SFML: A really good friend of mine and I have decided to start a (probably overscoped) C++ game project using SFML! More details as we figure out what this thing even is, but the goal is to sharpen our C++ skills so that we have a bit more than heavy C# game dev experience on our backs. I am also really excited to share information regarding the development of this in blog posts about games architecture and the like, so I have more to talk about than Unity and these blog posts.
It took too long for me to get around and post this, because of the aforementioned time spent doing other things putting me in a productivity slump. But that’s not really a good excuse, is it? I’m trying to find the right balance of work and play, so that I can keep in contact with people while also getting things done… but I’m sure I’m not the only person with this problem, far from it. Oh well. I just need to get back on the wagon and do some good work!
