I guess this could also go in the „Do you enjoy your job in the games industry?“ thread or “MapCore Job Census” but I haven’t shared in this thread yet, so here’s what’s up: I quit my job on Friday.

During last night my family grew up   I have now a second daughter and we are happy

I just put in my resignation at work and will leave in about a month back to Britanny in France, as while Germany had some perks, my current commute time, work hours, and renovations were creating a w

So, as many here know I've recently decided to make life as complicated as possible by simultaneously moving home, getting a new job, and breaking up with my 3.5-year girlfriend.

 

 

Done that before, twice :D (with the addition of pursuing a second master degree)

 

Change can be intimidating and overwhelming but is always needed to shake up the status quo.

 

Good luck for the transition and hope everything settles down as smoothly and quickly as possible :)

Couldn't see an obvious thread for this.

So, as many here know I've recently decided to make life as complicated as possible by simultaneously moving home, getting a new job, and breaking up with my 3.5-year girlfriend.

Right now things are going pretty well, all moved into my new flat. No internet access until next week, so basically my only source of entertainment has been my PS3's wonderful world of Blu-ray, DVD, and games. Even my 3G mobile internet ran out so I'm currently in Subway writing this.

Except now my PS3 has just died as I'm about four missions away from completing GTA5 — looks permanent. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!!!!!

 

You know, life has a way of testing a person's will, either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen all at once. When it rains it pours I suppose but as long as it doesn't flood you'll be ok. So far you've passed with flying colors mate. Respect!

A little bit similar than you in the sense of getting a new job and moving into a new place. The internet just got installed, but I still can't feel myself at home as I have to rely on wi-fi and play on my slow laptop.

 

Well, at least my life quality has improved significantly as I don't need to waste hours daily to get to work, now live in a good neighbourhood and have my own bedroom. Great stuff for when you are single. lulz.

 

But more importantly, I'll get back to personal projects which couldn't receive my attention before.

 

Dude, just relax and be sure that sooner or later these changes will be over, and sometimes they are for the better :)

Taking law school exams, working on a SP project, working on Crown and a new _de map probably. Going to go home and visit my family who I haven't really seen since last summer, so about a year ago. Going to go to the gym a lot more and try to pack on the Lbs, just general self improvement shit since I've been so focused on making maps/going to school that I don't care about (it is pretty educational though)

 

In general I'd like to work out every day if possible, to get my mind right. Impossible and a bad idea given how stressful that can be, but maybe I can do some home workouts or something, that would be nice.

 

As for breaking up with your GF, never forget the power of  :fist:

So i stopped smoking one and a half weeks ago and started doing some exercise and walking because i got more and more fat recently and didn't feel good due to smoking and being fat. But not smoking i actualy gained more weight already, d'oh! And now even doing some easy exercise i feel like i'm getting carpal tunnel in my left hand, my fingers feeling numb. Same thing happend couple years ago when i did a bit of weight lifting. Wonder what i can do about that because it sucks and nowadays i actualy need my left hand due to job.

 

Other then that i've started learning Modo this week but so far i've spent more time fighting with the interface and keyboard mappings then actualy modeling something.

I met my girlfriends parents the other night, they were visiting from Istanbul. On the way to the restaurant a bird did a shit on my shoulder. Her parents said it was meant to be lucky, though I think that's just something people say to make themselves feel better about being shat on. 

whereas that's funny as fuck someone could have hit their head and easily died. maybe they'd deserve it if it happened anyway

A vice needs to be replaced by another, preferably less harmuful one. dropping tobaco and cutting on food at the same time is not smart I think dude.

 

Try nicotine patches, and try and get in the habbit of exercising at least twice a week, first few weeks will be tough but you can fight through that shit. Tobacco is a fucked up drug.
