Years ago halfway between the 486s and the P5s I was the lead coder of a little programming group at school. My initial vision was to become quite good at what we do and have much fun doing it. I wanted us to be the best that we could possibly be and produce some bada** games.
Unfortunately, I was also very idealistic and immature at the time and eventually managed to screw over my chances at becoming a game designer. Those in the group eventually moved on without me and I have now pretty much lost contact with them. I have been living with this shame for quite some time now.
That is, until recently. I have afforded myself some forgiveness and have renewed my ambitions. It's time to begin the journey again, this time with some realistic goals. This journal will serve as a place for me to reflect on my current progress and plan the steps required to get myself on to the career path I've always wanted to travel.
