In Her Footsteps
To anyone interested in gamedev progress, turn back now. This will just be your old run of the mill blog post explaining in short what kind of year I’ve had (and consequentially why the lack of progress.)
This year has been somewhat of an emotional rollercoaster filled with puberty love and loss, depression, loss of loved ones, new friendships being formed, birth of a niece, declining health, broken dreams, pain and finding the courage to go on. Without going deeper into any of these issues I’m just here to tell you I need a break from my regular life for a while. On thursday I’m leaving for a six week volunteer trip to Nepal, which will hopefully take me on a two week trek to and from Everest Base Camp before I start my volunteer work at an education center. I’m partially doing this to follow in the footsteps of someone I admire a whole lot, someone who has been this year’s highlights.
I’m not really expecting this trip to change my life, but I feel like I need a break, and some perspective. I want to sort out what’s important to me and what is not.
I’m becoming increasingly into streaming. I set up a twitch account ages ago in order to stream gamedev. Might get back on that horse along with some let’s plays and design analysis when I return from Nepal. Right now it’s hard for me to look ahead and make plans, but I hope I’m on the right course to sort my life out.
Peace out all, I hope you are doing wonderful :)
