Intellectuals have a super boring life because we prefer to eliminate all unknown variables to maintain stability. However, there is a chance that I will bake a pie in the future. And when that day does come then I will make a big fuss about it; BEST PIE EVER!

Week 44, It Was January and Now It Is Suddenly November?

I’m not gonna make up any excuses for my inactivity! But… BUT! I have been busy. Also, my personal life is kinda boring anyways, its just work work work. Anyhow, I have updated the design of my blog… well at least a little bit. I have also been figuring out HOW to blog. I spent weeks researching and coming up with “best practices”, but even then it is just overwhelming. As you can see at the...

Week 7, Finished the RPG Game, Started Playing Tibia

I received an email from Twitch saying that they no longer white-list bots, this means my bot will be affected by regular chat and whisper limitations. Running a text-based RPG game on my twitch channel will sadly not be possible anymore. However, I will at least finish one section of the game and leave the rest of it for whatever I decide to do with the material. I might turn it into a real game sometimes....

Week 6, Making a text-based RPG… I guess I’m a game designer as well now!

Spent whole week working on my twitch channel, I began coding a bunch of mini-games, then decided to create a text-based RPG. And so far so good, the coding took a lot of time, especially the debugging. I had to work within the limitations of AnkhBot; it’s not exactly made for such big tasks! The original game design had many concepts, but I had to be realistic and not spend too much time on the project,...

Week 5, Humblebundle is The Best

Monday: 2017-01-30 Applied for a couple of jobs, can’t believe the first month of the new year is almost gone already! I’ve kept myself busy the whole time, but it still feels as if I’ve done nothing. This is why I keep doing this journal thingy, to keep track of what I have been up to. And I must say I have done a lot! All the paintings, the marketing, the trailer, the catalog, the website...

Week 4, Completed Two More Comic Characters

Monday: 2017-01-23 Administrative work, checking emails, applied for jobs and such. Managed to finish off the third character for my upcoming comic! The character took quite some time to finish, even though it is simplistic in its design. Was having some issues deciding which design I wanted to go with, so I had to try many different things until I found what was working… this took quite some time, didn’t finish until late in the afternoon....

Week 3, Character Designing for Upcoming Comic Strip

Monday: 2017-01-16 Did the usual Monday stuff, applied for a couple of jobs, checked email, also decided to publish these weekly journal blog thingies on Sunday night, or rather at midnight. No clue why, it just happened, deal with it! Been thinking a lot about the comic, managed to write a few scripts today, but I really had the urge to start drawing out a few strips and perhaps start publishing on a weekly basis. I...

Week 2, Play at Work is a Winning Concept

Monday: 2017-01-09 Finally back to writing… and it didn’t go that well, feel a bit rusty! I did write a couple of good scripts for the comic and came up with additional character design. I also figured out that I need one more character, but was having a hard time coming up with something that hasn’t been done to death. Will continue brainstorming tomorrow! Also did the usual Monday stuff, like administrative work and such. Was really...

Week 1, One Project Done, a Thousand More to Go!

Monday: 2017-01-02 First work day of the New Year! I’m pretty happy with how much I got done! Received word from the printing company, the catalog only had one issue which I fixed easily. That was a minor setback, but I fixed it and sent a new updated version, hopefully it will pass through this time. Other than that, it is a Monday and Monday is typical administrative work. I applied for some jobs and updated...

Week 52, Happy New Year! + Made a Catalog for My Paintings

Monday: 2016-12-26 Interesting… a Monday that doesn’t feel like one! Perhaps staying up late from last week’s Sunday ruined my clock or something. Whatever, I couldn’t fall asleep yesterday, so I stayed up to 8 AM, continued working on the paintings, converting the raw files into uploadable files. Fell asleep instantly once I was done and woke up 5 hours later around 1 PM to finish editing my last week’s blog post before publishing it. Managed...
