2013 is here and I’d like to write more one here during it. I post a lot of my pictures but there usually isn’t a lot to write about those unless I want to get into technical details and that’s not much fun. I’ll probably post about all sorts of random things, since I have interests all over the board, or I’ll post about silly things a lot because that is what I spend most of my time doing.
I’m hoping to post more about game making this year, I wasn’t very good about that this last year at all. I feel like I mostly drifted last year and didn’t accomplish all that much. This next year I want to create more, My primary outlet for that is usually programming and game making and I’m start work on a new Android game. I’ve also signed up to take part in One Game a Month, a initiative by some of the guys involved in Ludum Dare to get people making more games. It’s not like I don’t have the time for it, I spend so much time just screwing around when I could be doing something useful. I’m not sure if I’m going to be using that new Android game for this right away since I feel like it needs more then a month of work, but we’ll see. Since January has started here I really need to start on a game for this month then.
I have so many game to play right now too. I just bought Far Cry 3 which looks like it is rad to play even if the story is bad in the end, I have the Mass Effect Trilogy pack on PS3, I started with Kerbal Space Program again, I got the Civilization 5 expansion in the Steam winter sale, and there are always old games I just get interested in playing again. It is sometimes hard to figure out what to play, they all call to me.
I need to find more time to practice photography. I bought a new lens recently that should be even better for sports shots, I hope to test it out at roller derby soon. I took some nice pictures back at my dad’s over Christmas with the lens, the snow made it difficult to get the color right but once I figured out how to compensate everything worked well. Here is my favorite picture I took of a bird just outside the back door:
I really do want to do more creative stuff this year though, funny Youtube videos, podcasts, stuff like that. I need to keep myself motivated better and find others to do these things with.
