Today I'm 27 years old. I have survived another 365 days on the little wet rock whizzing about in space we call "Earth" (whoever was responsible for the naming of our planet wasn't the most inventive person for sure). 27 years old and I still... don't feel any more grown up then my age would suggest. One whole orbit was completed and I'm still alive, somehow. Considering what I've been put through in all that time it's quite the achievement.
But lets see what happened in all that time then:
- I've been rejected from university, twice. One digital design course (they said I wasn't talented enough) and one 3D design course (they no longer had any place left). Now with coronavirus haunting the 2020s getting into uni this year will even be harder.
- In Autumn of 2018 I was given the biggest commission to do I've ever been given. It's still not done. ^^;
However it's certainly something that lets me flex all my skills on.
- I got a place to live where I could set up my PC once more, retrieve my game files and restart my game project again. Now Nach has found a new home in the Godot engine, although it's still VERY early on and learning coding while also doing everything else on the game is a bit of a chore. But it's coming along, if slowly.
- Work has been... hard. I work for Wolt, food delivery by bicycle, and COVID-19 has made people lose most of their jobs and other incomes. These people have used Wolt as a fallback to keep afloat, which means a lot more couriers... but not enough work schedules to go around. Keeping afloat myself has been... tricky.
- In December, before the whole corona stuff hit Denmark, I asked someone out on a date! For the first time ever! It didn't go EXACTLY as planned but I had an amazing time and I believe so did she. Now I just need to figure out how to go on another date with her. First the COVID-19 stuff needs to go away, then I need to see if work gets better so I can save up again. And then... who knows?
Those are about the highlights I can think of in the 365 days leading up to my 27th birthday. That's... not a lot of stuff happening in a whole year but then my life isn't super eventful either.
But hey, I'm not complaining!
I'm still alive and I got plans on achieving things before the year is done!
Anyway, that's it from me.
Hope it's as awesome a day as it is over here right now!
