Everybody Sees The Ants

The best novel I have ever read. It brings tears to my eyes. It taught me about life and how good of a life I have.  It also taught me of how to improve my life, or open my eyes to what is really there and what really matters. Now I know that everybody sees the ants(no one  has a perfect life). The ants are always with us. On our shoulder. Marching on the ground. Talking to us. They are in our mind, and we talk to them and see them every day of our lives, even if you don’t know.

Do you see them? Do you see the ants?


Major Updates!

Hello everyone! Sorry I have been away from my portfolio for a while. Things have been a bit busy and hectic on my end, but at least I can jam in a journal entry to fill you guys in on how I’ve been doing! School is going well, and my grades are consistent. I have finals coming up, but that isn’t stopping me from doing what I need to do on the computer.

I recently gave a sort of ‘morale-boosting speech’ to my team for Half-Life 2: Retaliation. I might as well say that we are going to be picking up the pace and moving very quickly as far as development goes. Release for HL2: R is scheduled for the end of June of this year, and to be honest, I have yet to know if we will make that deadline. But all in due time will we be able to find out.

I also started a new project of mine, called Introversion Tournaments. It is a community group centered around Introversion Software’s video game smash hits Multiwinia, DEFCON, and Darwinia. We host playdates and tournaments in hopes of bolstering the community so that the games are actively played. So far we’re off to a slow start, but we are planning our 1st tournament, so we’ll have to see how it goes.

Regarding changes to the website, I have added a ‘Downloads’ page and changed the system for downloading stuff. It should be better now to acquire files(or at least easier). Go check it out if your interested.

Anyway, I might post some journal entries about some films later. I have been specifically thinking about the film Dahmer (2002).

Some Changes

I have:

  • added download links(as a .PDF and a .DOC file) to the stories I’ve written(can be found in the Literature/Screenwriting section of the blog).
  • added new pictures to the ‘Level Design’ photo album
  • added a new widget to the sidebar for contacting me(now shows additional and more nicely laid out icons
  • tweaked the blog colors and scheme a little
  • switched webhosts(from WordPress.com to 000webhost.com) this provides additional functionality and expansion to my portfolio

I’ll give a thorough news report on how things are going soon.
