It's just really freakin hot here in Texas.
My job isn't exciting, but it pays well and I'm getting good experience. Some of my coworkers make me look so damn good.
I still get to program projects in my free time. I'm learning the Unreal Engine!
No one can stop me from eating an entire pizza. No one.
I'm joining meet up groups to make friends in my area. Networking yo.
This shit is way better than high school.
I just wish it wasn't so FUCKING HOT.
It's that time of the year again, I go back to my parents house and get those feelings that remind me about this web site. And I got to thinking about how I should write another blog, and I want to talk about something that I've talked about before but always danced around it.
It's that little thing that a majority of 64Digits members seem to have gone through, or still are going through.
Let's talk about....
So some time ago I was going to write a blog titled Climbing Out of the Rabbit Hole, and while I like the title, the blog was so serious. Too serious. I'm tired of serious.
It doesn't help that the topic was pretty serious too, *waves arms in the air* the clash between life expectations and reality *ghost noises* WooOOooOOoo...
Basically I spent almost 6 months out of college with no job, I would mostly be rejected interviews. When I did get an interview, about half the time I would get a second interview. Sometimes the interviews were bullshit (*cough* amazon), sometimes I would just completely fuck it up and not have a good answer, and sometimes I would fucking nail it... only to hear that they went with someone else and oh man you were so close please try again in 8 months when you are dead.
But none of those miserable months matter anymore because *trumpets* BAW B-B-b-BUAM! Ferret is officially employed! That's right ladies and gentlemen, employed, with a salary, 401k, and benefits! Yeah. Woo.
Can't help but feel a small string after trying so many companies I wanted to work for. I ain't going to be working in vidya games like I mused about last blog. I did try, I thought I did well enough, turns out I don't know a lot about something I haven't done much of. WHO WOULDA THUNK.
Honestly though, I'm excited for my job, it pays well, they are paying for my move and more, and now I get to live my own life and focus on what I want. Also this Ferret is moving to Austin Texas! Smell ya later Cyrus! (In all seriousness Cyrus, you got a couch you can sleep on in Austin anytime now, please visit me)
Oh and bye LARGames, who lives like 20 minutes away from me but I've never met. :P
Once I get my first paycheck I'll buy GM:Studio and be a proper game mod again!
Hugs and kisses.
But mostly kisses.
