The Weekly Roar: Managing Multiple Projects

I’ve been working on several different personal projects lately, not to mention the class projects I have as well.

There’s Reflex Arena, and two more undisclosed (secret!) projects. I’ve been finding it hard to manage time between them, but I think I’ve come up with a system on how to delegate time for each project: work on one project until I get stuck or I get bored of it, and switch.

I’m literally basing it off of feeling and it’s been working so far, but we’ll just have to see how much actual progress I can make in a few weeks using this system.

Reflex Arena is coming along nicely, I’ve fixed up some networking issues and I’m working on a developer update which will be posted soon.

I’ll keep this post short, since I have a lot of projects to work on and a developer update to post.

The Weekly Roar: Returning Home

I went home for fall break this weekend and it was very different from what I remember. A lot has changed in the 1.5 months I’ve been gone for college. This is my first year in college and I feel like I’ve been able to adjust quickly. On campus, I’m super busy, doing some kind of activity almost everyday. When I got back home, I felt like there was nothing for me to do. At home there isn’t the same closeness/coziness that you feel on a college campus. Everything on campus is within walking distance, while I have to drive to get anywhere at home. My friends literally live in the same building as me on campus. I felt, there’s no other word to describe it, bored at home. Maybe it’s the fact that I’m so used to college life, or maybe it’s because I only had four days of break, but everything just moves so slow back home.

Anyways, I went out with friends and I went back to my high school to see some old faces. I met with some teachers, who gave me advice, who told me they missed me. I missed everyone back home, which is why I chose to come back. Everyone, my peers, my teachers, and my coaches, have all influenced me in positive ways and I’m glad to have gotten to know all of them. I’ll keep coming back home, because home may not be as “fun” or action-packed as college is, but there’s no place like home.

 

So The Weekly Roar is going to my weekly blog post on literally anything. I will talk about basically anything that’s on my mind when I write it. This is going to be a creative outlet for me, and it’ll (hopefully) improve my writing a bit. I will also be writing game dev pieces, although not as regularly, since they will be updates on Reflex Arena or other projects that I’m working on.
