spent a while on this whew

headache, but in a semi good way...

I’ve been messing around with the game maker engine.  I purchased a professional license from Steam while it was on sale for $20.  I figure now that more than ever I need to make a video game and put my degree to use.  The issue that I’m running into is that I’m not a coder and rely heavily on coding tutorials.  I spent the last few days working on getting dialogue boxes to work.  Whew.  I have something decent at this time.  I have all these stories in my head and what I want to do, and what tale I want to tell, but cannot proceed with that until I have the game basics up and running.  Before I realize it, hours have passed while I’m messing with coding.  Ugh.  I’m making progress very slowly, but it’s happening.  :)
