Posting has been super light because not only is the end of the semester coming next week, but the end of my life as a student (again). That’s right. After this all my classes are done and all that is left is for me to finish my thesis and submit it to the committee for review. So, while classes are officially over, I still have quite a bit of work to finish so I can get the piece of paper.
Now, I came here for the skills, which I have learned, more than the piece of paper but the paper will be nice to have too, so come December I’ll be either flying back out here or video conferencing with the board to get the final box checked.
Well, it’s this little thing called “You took on a huge project”. See, what I thought was going to be a manageable project size turned out to be a lot bigger than I thought the more I worked on it. Details that I hadn’t thought of came up and items that seemed fairly simple turned out to be pretty complex in the end. Doesn’t mean I won’t get it done, just means it is going to take a bit longer than I thought it would.
That’s been my problem through school though, really. I get ideas that are possible but just out of my technical reach. It does force me to learn and push, but at the same time the goal is to do a project within reason and not dive off the high board to see if you can do it.
In any event, it will get done, it’s just going to take a bit longer.
Oh, and that part about video conferencing the review. Well, we (meaning the wife and I) have had just about enough of this area to last a lifetime so we are going to be moving out of here and to Austin, TX area. It will put us right between her family and mine, there is a strong art and game design community there, and Texas allows concealed carry so it fits with my attitudes pretty well.
We’ll take lots of pictures of the drive.
