Career Changes And Stuff

A whole lot has happened in the last few months! Here's a brief summary:

  1. The biotech office I was working in closed down, so I got laid off

  2. Moved back home to hang out with my family and friends more

  3. Started doing independent projects full time

  4. Found some freelance projects to help me develop my Unity skills and pay the bills

  5. Spent a couple weeks in Ireland on vacation

  6. Got hired as a programmer for a small game development studio

That's right, I'm now a corporate sellout trading my dreams for a 401k! Seriously, though, I'm super stoked to be working for a studio and I'm learning so much every single day. I don't end up with a huge amount of drive to make games when I get home from work, but fortunately the main work I need to do is writing for Echoes of Indigo. I'm blocking out some time each day to write, and looking forward to the next game jam! Sad that I missed the last two big ones, but I'm hoping to do one of the more obscure game jams soon as a sort of palate cleanser.
