Awhile back, a friend had posted praise for a journal entry because it WASN’T about UE or Penultima, but was about what was going on in my life at the time. I wish I could do more of these, but I’m afraid that most of the time, my life IS UE and Penultima. There’s not much going on outside the following:
* Wrestling with local pals
* Movie parties with local pals
* Writing UE
* Working on Penultima
* Playing video games
* Work sucking.
That’s basically 95% of my life as of late. I wish I had more poignant things to share, but I’m afraid it’s as plain as that.
The question then becomes: Is that pathetic, or is that basically normal? But that’s not a question I feel I can answer.
Moving on to the standards…
Feature Creep is, well, creeping into Penultima ReRolled. I keep thinking of new and cool things I can add to it, like Sally’s Spin-o-Taur (a toy top that can be spun five times before it breaks, and each spin summons a minotaur to fight for you) and more city options. I think I need to put a cap on the optional neato stuff and just FINISH module #0/#1 already. If I’m lucky they’ll be in beta this weekend…
As for UE, I have to sit down and outline the next part. I keep getting distracted by things to do and social occasions and *gasp* legit career oriented work, so it’s taking awhile.
As for games, O-kun gave me his copy of GTA3, which was a bit of a surprise. I’ve gotta thank him for that, the PC version is MUCH easier to play than the PS2 version due to the gun aiming issues and inability to reach the handbrake button on the PS2 controller. Maybe I’ll actually get through more than eight missions now.
I get this feeling I need more out of life. I also get this feeling that even if I found more, I wouldn’t have time for it. Maybe once I finish UE and Penultima, I’ll not take another project for awhile… shyeah, as if. I thought the same thing when I finished Sailor Nothing, and I was into UE two weeks later at most. I’m hard-wired for project development, no way around it. When I’m not producing, I’m restless. When I’m producing, I’m frantic. Take your pick.
