Scheduling.

So, for the rest of this year at least, I want to try to keep myself to a pedigree. One Blog Post a day.

This would be hard if I really wanted every post to be a indepth article about game modding, or programming, or an opinion  piece, so I am opening up my blog to a bunch of new topics, bringing it more in line with a personal blog than just a dev one.

Heres a few ideas I want to do.

Reviews.

Not just game reviews, or media reviews, ANYTHING. I plan on trying to review one thing a week, weather that is a game, movie, TV dinner, hair product, piece of clothing, microcontrollers from Adafruit, etc.

Reflections.

There are a lot of obscure and interesting things that shaped who I am as a person today, and I think it would be nice to reflect on some of these things, people, etc, and write a bit about how they affected me.

Dev Progress Update

I want to take one day a week after work and focus on either working on, or releasing source code to one of my many, many unfinished products that I have accumulated over the years. I want to put all my code on either Github or Google Code so that others can take my projects and fork them if they want to continue development on it in the future.

Project Dantarion Update

I also want to post once a week about progress being made on the rewrite of my game prototype using Lua and UE4.

Cool Link

This is kinda the “I don’t have time” post that I want to do, rather than go a day without posting. These will just be a link to something, like a page, a song, a video, etc, and a shot paragraph about why I think its cool or interesting. I have no excuse not to be able to do one of these even if time is short, I could even post them from my phone.

Photography!

I live in a beautiful place. I want to try to post a picture once a week of something, even if its just my roommates cat, or the sunset.

A New Era of Dantarion

 

This month begins another attempt at self-reinvention. As time passes and we get older, I think its important to take moments in time and reevaluate what you are doing with your time here on earth. Some call it a “mid life crisis, but the concept is the same no matter what your age is. You wake up one day, think about your current life, and wonder “Whats next?”

I had been thinking about this a lot recently, and came to a bit of a conclusion as to what action I want to take in this regard. At first, I thought about each aspect of my life separately.

I want to get in better shape.
I want to advance my skills and my career.
I want to eat better.
I want to meet new people and do exciting things.

Yes, these are stereotypical New Years resolutions that people make, and at first glance, these things are only kinda related, and it might make sense to think about them separately. But I thought indepth about them, and realized that the thing keeping me back is the same in all cases.
