Developer, web designer, indie game enthusiast, and I am actively pursuing game development. Along with that, I do a weekly radio show with my roommate called Seeking Infinity. We talk about games and game design, play some cool VG tunes, and generally have a good time. Give us a listen! Entertainment guaranteed or your non-money back! Zero Hour Productions is my portfolio site and general repository for stuff. It will even be my game company some day!

...specifically, a lesson from Terminator 2: Judgment Day: "There is no fate but what we make for ourselves." (90s movies are freaking phenomenal, by the way.)
I took this particularly to heart in the past month, for the simple fact that I have searched for (and successfully located) a new job over the past month. Long story short, my current employment wasn't exactly what I hoped it would be, and ultimately turned into a situation where I genuinely loathed going to work. To the point of the lesson learned, I took matters into my own hands, and actively sought out a different employer.
Great news on that front - as of April 15th, I will be at said new job, which seems (on its face) to match more of what I'm looking for - newer languages, smaller projects, more valuable experience with said newer languages. I am pretty excited to start with the new work; the 15th cannot come soon enough.
How this relates to here (i.e. Seeking Infinity), is that it ends a long "on-edge" period for me. A large part of the delay in Journey 3 was caused by the stress and general malaise caused by switching jobs and the uncertainty it brought about. Now that the situation is firmly in hand, I have a much better outlook - myself and Tormod can now finish plans for Journey 3 without my ludicrous worries hanging over head. While we can't, yet, make any guarantees as to when it will start, we are drawing steadily closer.
That's all for now.
