Fuck man, that's scary as hell! I had a hairline crack on my wrist skateboarding a few years back and that motherfucker hurt like crazy, nothing compared to this though, so I can only imagine how painful it is. But oh well, life can be a motherfucker sometimes :cry: Good luck on your recovery!

I broke my wrist 6 weeks ago and had surgery, got 11 screws in that sucker. Which also mean that I've been off work for 6 weeks and it's been driving me crazy. Doing my final check-up on monday, hoping that it healed up nicely and that I can properly start my physio and get back into some sort of shape again.

X-rays in the spoiler in case anyone is too sensitive to that kinda stuff.

Oh and I'm trying to by an apartment. Not enjoyable to be honest.

A few months ago I was expelled because of poor academic performance. But I got one chance to go back without having to sit for the entrance exam once again. In here the entrance exam is the sole criteria, they don't care about anything else but your score in that exam. The other way to enter is to first complete a degree, then there is a special entrance exam for ppl who already have a degree.

Just moved into a new place 3 weeks ago and in november i will move out again already because this new place stinks (literally)!

Backstory: I lived in this house for 9 years with no problems. Last year i told my landlord that i'm interested in moving into a larger apartement. So happend that one got available this year. The deal was that the new place gets refurbished before i move in. But then 3 weeks before when i already made all the arrangements and packed my stuff the landlord told me a bullshit story that he couldn't find someone to take care of that. I should have cancelled there but was naive and desperate to get into a bigger place so i moved in with only the living room refurbished.

First night i notice that the bedroom has a very strange smell. Havent slept there once yet. Also noticed that the hallway smells weird. First couple days i tried with getting lot of fresh air in and cleaning everything. Then i noticed that in the bath and in the windows someone hid mold under a thin layer of paint. Also in the living room some stains appeared from under the freshly painted wall.

Then after about a week i confronted my landlord with everything and then things got sour between us. He refused to acknowledge the problems and made some snide remarks like "it's your word against mine". I told him he either fixes this apartement or i will move out again. I think he thought i'm bluffing and was very clear that he doesnt want to spent money even tho the bastard kept the deposit from the people who lived here before! So immediately i started looking for a new place and now i have found something very nice not far away. Tomorrow i will tell my landlord when i have signed the papers. Cant wait to see the look on his face.

He probably won't give your deposit back either, that wont be fun... hopefully it's not a lot of money.

Speaking of probs with houses, we moved into a nice 2 bedroom apartment about 6 months ago, last month we got a notice every house in the whole complex will be fumigated. I was like... whatever. Until I realized what that entails, if you remember in Breaking Bad, the scenes where they put a huge tarp on top of a house, making it look like a circus. That's basically what they're gonna do to our house, and shoot a lethal gas inside for 2 days. This gas is so lethal, if you happen to be inside the tent while this is happening, you'll die in less than 30 minutes. They say once the tarp is lifted all the gas will dissipate, but fuck me man, I got a 3 month old newborn, if he inhales even a wiff of this shit that happens to get deposited into a drawer or something, I don't even wanna think about what would happen.

We'll be spending 4 nights in a nearby hotel. It's a major fucking hassle, all the food will need to be thrown out, or double bagged with a special wrapp, you need to get all your clothes, sheets and pillows, out of the house and other stuff that can't stay inside for obvious reason, including the baby crib.

fuck. my. life.

Oh wow that sucks. And yea i'm not getting my deposit back but that's ok because i was supposed to pay for reburbishing my old appartement. Instead of paying for that bill directly i will tell him to keep the deposit so he can't fuck me over with the new apartement. What's annoying tho is that i have to pay for moving once again. New place i will also need to buy a new kitchen and a lot more furniture but the quality of life will be so much better. New place has two floors, a terrace and a proper bath with bathtub.

I also ordered a mold test from amazon btw and it's growing some insteresting colonies right now...

I remember when I lived in Germany for a few years, it's the strangest thing in the world that when you move in to a place, the kitchen is usually just a couple of tubes sticking out of the wall, you need to buy everything. lol

@Steppenwolf make sure you check the piping (kitchen, bathroom, heaters in all the rooms), especially the bits where the pipe goes into the wall. It's not just for leaks, but if there are noticeable cracks/tiny spaces in the wall around the pipes, those can allow occasional pests like cockroaches to invade you. Nothing you can't seal, but it's good to know in advance.

The new place is in excellent shape as far as i can tell. Have never seen a cockroach in Germany btw. Only ever had trouble with ants if anything and now mold.

I blame the previous tenants to some degrees. They were pretty strange. The place looked like a third reich nazi museum. Was surprised that they showed it to me but otherwise they didnt seem to let any handymen in and kept the windows closed all the time i suppose because everything was full of swastika flags and such.

@Steppenwolf you should report this asshole to authorities, if it was through an agency, the agency, then shit all over him on social, there are plenty of forums specialised on renting nowdays.

I'm not clear if you still gonna live in his property but I hope not, doesn't seem a person you want to be in business with.

Hey guys, it's been a while since I posted here (in May or so ?). I've been following a bit the activities on the forum. So many cool maps created! 

I wanted to give some news of what happened those last few months. 

Still at Ubisoft Annecy but I got a permanent contract now 🎉 I've been assigned many technical tasks, working on improving pipepline through tools. This shit is super exciting! Super good feedback for management, tasks are fun and atmosphere is very friendly (btw we're still looking for level designers and level artists here ;) )

For the french speakers, I've launched a podcast called Meet The Dev in which I interview people working in the game industry (if french speakers are interested to participate, contact me!)

I'm also writing a book! It is a book about how to get a job in the industry where I talk about speciliazed schools, Cv, portfolio but also professionnal attitude, application, networking etc. I try to cover everything to create the master "guide" (i don't like to say guide). I hope it will be interesting for people willing to get into the industry. I've been willing to do that for a long time and i'm very happy I finally started to do it. It's a big retropecctive on what have happen in my life for the past years ^^ I've been reading many books about personal developement lately and as i'm starting to work with schools, I thought it would be a super good tool to make a universal book about game industry's "secrets' and hidden truths about recruitment. there are big parts of "Open your eyes!" for newbies. 

Yeah I said it, I'm getting in touch with game schools in France to make some lessons. Normally I'll be starting that beginning of next year ! I'm super happy about that too! It's mainly a personal goal but i'll may be under the ubisoft flags for few lessons. 

Oh and those personal development books... man it has changed my life. Honestly, reading those has been a big change of perspective on how to achieve objective. The best two i've read are "The 7 habits of highly efficient people" and "the Magic of seeing big". It has put me in an amazingly good mood and I'm doing averything to keep on with like that. I can only recommend to read them! 

And last but not least, I've been training to get into the real estate investment. I'm planning to buy my first appartment next year to rent it. I'll do good quality flats don't worry. I'm not a fucker that rent shit. 

Wow, didn't expect to write that much ahah 😅

Still nocitine free, since february. Can't believe i actually made it this time. 
The backside of not using it is that i ate alot more, so i've gained 15 kilos in weight over theese months. Took some time but my slow and stupid mind slowly realized, that i have to like myself to actually get confidence again and find a woman. So, im down 5 kilos now. Don't really know where this motivation came from but i've been eating around 1500 calories / day and walking/lifting weights. Seems to do the trick just fine.

Well, since this darn Post Strike started here in Canada, my shipments I ordered are coming later than I had hoped. Thankfully yesterday I got one of my packages! It was full of nice flags (Y'all probably know me because I released all those flag packs :D)

This is one of my favorite flags that I got: The East German/GDR flag! (And I can't seem to get the anthem out of my head, it's like it has become imbedded in my brain 😄)

And since it came from Germany, the package included a small bag of Haribo candies! (Oh boy do I love those, and yes they do sell them here in Canada! :D)
