Snow Bummer

Posted on January 12, 2011

I’m really looking forward to this semester at Tech. Unfortunately, we’re already out three school days due to snow/rain/ice here in the south. Most people seem happy to blame southern drivers for being terrible, which is true, but they also forget that it just doesn’t make sense for governments here to spend money on heavy winter equipment. It is for this reason that Georgia Tech has been closed for the first three days of class and I’m bored and wishing for the sun to come out.

I’m excited about RUF, intramurals, the videogame development SIG, and (surprise) my classes! For the first time in my life I have an idea of what I want to do and, although I’m still somewhat uncertain and hesitant, this semester is an excellent opportunity to jump in up to my knees or so and give video game development a try. I’ve been doing a bit of exploration on my own but more than anything else I want to meet like-minded people and start working towards a publishable game. One of my classes features a semester group project that culminates in publishing a game to Kongregate or other online game portal. This is exactly what I need and want and cannot wait to get started on this semester. Hopefully school will be in session tomorrow and I can attend that class for the first time!
