Monday i pack the u-haul and move back to Canada. Vegas is cool but VERY F-in hot, if you know what i mean.
The job just hasn't worked out, and I have needed to change my life. So come fall I am enrolled to go to Uni and do a Bsc in computer science. Not sure if I want to reenter the games industry when I am done or not. At one point it was a dream, but the dream has died and withered.
As a programmer I just did not have enough creative input into the games. I kept seeing designs that I could see where not fun, but no one would listen. When I put something that I knew was fun, I would catch crap for doing it without asking, and praise since it was so good.
But if I asked ahead of time I would be told that was dumb, it wears you down after a while. Makes you depressed, and do sloppy work.
Part of what was wrong with this job in Las Vegas that I know what i know, but lack the theoretical and formal education. My years of experience has surpassed my knowledge, i am expected to know things I have never done before because I have lots of experience.
So off to get the missing knowledge, and being near family will be nice.
PS. miss Cara also...
