What's going on with your life?

Recommended Posts

So I finally did it.

I resigned a week after coming back from Canada and last Monday I moved in with my girlfriend.

It was risky to move without having the safety of a new job, but I decided to go for it to force myself to do better.

I hope I can soon find at least an easy job with set routine, 9-5 or the likes - eg admin, just so I have free time to spend developing game dev skills, which I wasn’t managing with my random shifts. In theory that was getting better, as I got promoted to Manager position and we were finally sorting the staff, but that could have changed in a snap and the whole long distance was just stressful. It’s been too long and need to see if we really work as a couple, can only do that by sharing a place.

Per aspera ad astra!

Hey gang. Just got back from my honeymoon in New Zealand. Loved it. 3 weeks of fast-paced bliss and adventuring. A lot of nature photos taken for source materials and I feel rejuvenated to tackle 3D projects again. :D

I've started a new job Tuesday.

Junior Technical Project Manager in the web department a publishing company.

Hopefully this means I won't have to clean a room or wash plates ever again... but I'm very bummed by the commute. Had to buy a car, which I was trying to avoid, and it's not 50 min like Google was saying, but 1h 20m. Tiring, "dangerous" and costy. Since I'm still getting contacted by agencies for jobs will definitely stay on the look out.

I also got in contact with a game developer and designing a logo for his game engine.

My problem is debt, so , i can't really do anything about that. When my ex left me i had to sell the house when it was a rough time, so i had to sell it for less than it was worth. So, if anyone knows a magic way of reseting debts plz let me know :D

Bitcoin. 

No, in all seriousness I wouldn't know. The only thing that comes to my mind is to do bookkeeping. I write down all my expenses in a spreadsheet and calculate monthly averages of food, sports, etc. Even if something costs 1 cent, I write it down. It's a good way to consciously decrease your spending and save money. So if you're not doing that already, please do.

For instance back in high school there were so many people who bought some food or drinks from a vending machine. That means €1 a pop, 5 days a week, for a school year. That comes down to €200 each school year on redundant shitty food or drinks. And that's a conservative estimate. I'm confident that number is a lot higher for the average lot. It's so dangerous because €1 doesn't seem like anything in the moment, but when you add all those little expenses...
