Maybe later..............that's later .
SO whats been happening in life of the Millsy one. Well one of the Millsy ones. Honestly uni, work and a fuck tonne of opportunities.
SO in the past month things have been a bit crazy. I released my first actual game "Block Blast". Its sold 62 units and then it stopped, nothing for 2 weeks, but at least it sold some. I am thinking of doing an update and making it free for 2 weeks to get the numbers up. This might seem a bit stupid and unfair to the people that have already bought it, but i need to get some more sales on the damn thing.
Work with smiths is starting to loose a bit of luster, its just way to simple and repetitive. It have taken almost 6 months for that to occur but with uni and everything it is starting to feel like a chore. Which is suppose as work it is supposed to be a chore. But you know what i mean.
Opportunities keep coming fast and furious, One UTS might want me to do run two short courses, the first would be on iPhone programming and the other would be about rapid prototype development. I've only done a document for a proposal but if it goes through it could be a weeks work for a few grand. O.o amazing. I am so stoked but kind of worried that i might end up doing so much i stuff up all my studies which i really don't want to do.
Other than that I've also applied to IBM and Qantas for graduate courses. these would start at the beginning of next year but if things go ahead with uni and TAFE i might be so busy that i could not do it all, I kind of hope i get into that situation but then i also would be worried that i would make the wrong choice.
I just want to make games......is that so much to ask...........it might be below what the world has in store for me and that is truly scary.
more to come.......later
WEll the weekend was AWESOME. Had a great lan with about 10 people and kick up the games hardcore.
Its was excatly what I needed and wanted it to be. SO Chuffed.
So that makes this all the harder to say. I think it might be time to stop playing games for a while.....or buying new ones at least. Right now I feel I have enough games to keep me entertainted for the next 6 months. Which from a student point of view it is a good thing to be giving up games. I don't have the money or the time anymore to do what I love but if uni goes well I will be making what I love for the rest of my days. So one small sacrific for the rest of my days doesn't seem to bad.
No more games for a while. ...........................................................................................................................................................................I'll be lucky to last a week :P
So last week I started UTS( university of Technonlogy Sydney) and the noraml things happened. I freaked out because the course was way over my head. They fucked up my course information text books and time tables. The hours are pretty lousy. The books are frigging ridiculusly expensive, $500plus for 4 damn books. RAGHHHHHAAA
But now its the second week and the shock has warn off. I'm cool collected and in control. I got my frist assignement last week and it seemed so daunthing and crap but I've read my text books I've found another textbook in the library and now its all zen. I feel confident that I'm going to not only pass but do quite well. WEll heres hoping ;)
I hope this course goes well on my way to becoming a games designer, and I hope I'm not wasting my time as some of the stuff we have looked at we covered in the first term of TAFE. But so far it seems to be moving at a pace I can keep up with if I don't do stupid things like play wow or go out drinking all night. I'm quietly confident that I will get through this, maybe not with distinctions but with a pass at least and thats all I really need to get one step closer to my dreams.
So Look out UTS I'm coming to get you and your degree you've been holding for me.
I'm so bleha today. I work up and I"m all fleuy and crappy.
so I'm staying in bed. I hate feeling like this fucking colds suck. I think it was the party Iwent to to this weekend.
me = blah
bed = warm
warm = good.
