New grad looking for work...

My personal demons:
Graduating from college was suppose to give a positive future. Sadly, I'm starting to believe it is a false idea. I graduated from college three months ago and expected to find a job in doing the things I want to do. Instead, I see no hope in the state of Florida. I am already looking for work in retail again. I FU**ING hate retail and all of its existence! I have two years of experience in the field on retail. I was trying to pay my way for college until I can't stand it anymore. In addition, I fell into depression due to the fact that people are jerks. Nothing personal, I fu**ing hate this world. I can't get experience in software development and now I believe having a degree is useless! I barely sleep due to the fact that I can't find a job at least an entry level position on software development.

Hope much?:
I'm giving it all I got. I am going to make a game that is fun and crazy. All I got to do is make this pixel art and try to set up some fun stuff. I need to come up with a name for the game since I already finished my Fargo 2D Game Engine. I'm hoping that I can make this game at least fun for everyone (Demos for everyone soon). I'm sorry for this useless post. I had a need to express my anger and I was hoping this journal was the right place to do it.

The road may not be fun but if you stop trying to walk it you will never get to your destination. Good luck and best wishes with the grind.

You know, I actually appreciate when people talk about personal stuff on their journals, not because I enjoy gossip but because it reminds me that we are reading stories from real people with real struggles, as cheesy as it sounds. Not only It helps to empathise with the author, but it also can motivate the readers to continue with their own projects. So, with that said, hopefully you find a job related to software development soon, because I agree, working in retail is the fucking worst.

Easier said than done. Best of luck.

 

Regarding pixel art, I just wanted to say that there may be other art styles that you might want to try, especially if art is not your forte. People underestimate how hard making pixel art is and they end up frustrated. If you are a programmer and dislike making art, then try to find a way to make most of the art programmatically; it will be less frustrating for you and you may archieve great results.

 

Of course, if you really want to use pixel art because you like the style then by all means go for it, either teaming up with a pixel artist or learning it yourself, but I'm just saying that you consider other options.

 

Anyway, good luck! Looking forward for a demo.

I would say hang in there and keep giving it all you can. I know many people (including myself) that it took 6 months to get their first software development job out of school.

That's a good idea. I do like pixel art so I'll try to find a partner. If that fails, I'll just learn how to do pixel art. Maybe in a basic form of pixel art.

Thanks for the comment. I'll do my best to stay positive.
