Well, I haven't made a journal in a while but I thought I would stop by, say hi, and drink a little whiskey and rye.
Alright, yesterday I went up to RT Philly for the day. It was an amazingly awesome
sober time! It was sweet to meet Luke McKay, Goose and Kal for the second time, play some Grifball (which will forever be remembered as the day that Pudding was the ultimate victor, P-P-P-PUDDINGGG POWERRR!!!), and all of the awesome people of the community who attended. I brought a Grifball Action Figure with me and managed to get BlawnDee, Goose, Kal, and Luke to sign it. It's now the most BAMF Grifball Action Figure EVER!!! I'll definitely be going next year and I'll see you all there!
I don't think I made a journal about PAX East so...YEAH PAX EAST!!!!! It was awesome, met a lot of cool people and did a bunch of cool things. I put up a some pictures if you wanna see who I met and what booths I checked out. I'll be going next year, haven't booked a room yet, so if you are looking for people, I'm available. Hopefully my car won't break down a week before and cost me $400 this time.
I've also officially graduated from college. I got my Bachelor's of Science in Game/Simulation Programming from DeVry University. I can't really say much of anything good about this college besides that it uses an accelerated program which got me my four year degree in just three. But yeah, it's a horrible school just after money. I could make an entire separate journal with all of the B.S. they gave me, besides the degree. Professional job wise, I have put in around 20 apps and have gotten two "no's". So things are looking pretty good so far.
Alright, now that I have my degree, I've mostly just be chillin, looking for a full-time gaming job, and working on a few projects. I have a full-time job working at a Gold/Silver
Pawn Shop. We buy gold/silver jewelry and buy/sell coins. Yes, I could tell you exactly how much your gold necklace is worth but you'll probably not like the price with how the Western World has been buying out the dollar and causing gold/silver to have record drops last week. What's up with that shiz? Anyway, I am also working part-time for a Indy Game Company. I am an incentive/level/world designer and have made a pretty decent volcano island level so far, terrain and textures are done, now I've been working on tree/plant placement. The second project I am working on is for my game concept that I used through college. Basically, I am turning it into a novel. I haven't starting writing yet, but my outline has 23 chapters and 272 predicted pages. I am shooting for around 30 chapters and 350 pages. I will probably need an artist for cover art and inside page art if anyone is interested.
That's about it I think. Oh, I also finally got around to making my bedroom look badass from moving home in December. I have like over 30 Halo figures, a bunch of posters, and some other cool things including my little-league self-signed football helmet and signed John Elway helmet (maybe fake). I have a gaming wall and football/trophy wall which also works as a random awesome shit wall. I'm also working on a Grifball Montage with over 50 films still to go through. And I also ran for Grifball Head of Events again but didn't get elected /sad face\. I had so many different events planned with prizes and all that good stuff; perhaps making a journal entry about it might of helped a bit.
Well, that's about it for now, if I can think of anything else, I'll edit it in. It's definitely been an eventful year and I'll see you all at PAX East 2012!!! And may the Pudding be with you!
