Scariest thing I've ever done
- 2018-02-24

During the first game project in college, we had to do a presentation in front of the whole school and it was also live-streamed. For some reason, I volunteered to be one of the people in my group to do the presentation.

We were two people from the group who did the presentation, me (lead programmer) and our lead game writer. Our project leader/lead designer was supposed to join us, but she didn't have time to prepare so we decided to just do it with only us two. I was so nervous and scared of doing it that I almost didn't do it. I have in the past had a really hard time to talk in front of large groups of people, but the more I do it the easier it gets. The presentation went very good (in my opinion at least) and I'm really proud of the work me and the group did for the game. Below is the VOD of the live-stream the school did. We go on at the two hours and ten minutes mark.

It was super scary to do, but I am really glad I did it.

New longboard :D
- 2017-03-22

Hi! It was long overdue to get a new longboard so I finally bought one. Last time I bought a longboard it was an Warp generic thing I got for $50, so this time I wanted to do it right.

I got help from the longboarding subreddit (/r/longboarding) to pick out a setup that would be perfect for me. I decided on a commuter/freeriding setup with the potential to be used for more serious downhill riding.

Setup:

  • Rayne Nemesis V3 - Shipwreck Graphic
  • Gullwing Reverse 10 inch Truck (white)
  • Madrid Flypaper Griptape 12 inch
  • Moonshine universal skate tool (apparently I'm going to find this very helpfull)
  • Powell Paralta Snakes 69mm wheels (red)
  • Venom Downhill Bushings (green)
  • Venom Downhill Bushings (red)
  • Zealous Bearings

Total Cost: 454€ (assembly included)

I truly love the graphic on the deck. At first I was going to go for a deck without graphic (pure wood), but I fell in love with the Rayne Shipwreck graphic so I decided to go with a board that has that graphic. At first I was going to go for the larger version (Demonseed), but after seeing a video of it I realized that it was far too big for me.

The rest of the setup I pretty much trusted the community to pick good things for me.

This is how the setup looks:

Bucket list
- 2017-03-14

Hi.

I've realized that I want to make a bucket list. I've never really done one before. The start of the list is going to be the 100 things I wrote down for the excercies I talked about in my last post.

Im still not sure if im going to post the whole list on here. For now its not going to be posted.

Life goals
- 2017-03-14

Hi.

Welcome. This is my first real blog post I would say. I recently realized that I dont know what the fuck I want to do with my life, so my ex suggested a exercise where you say 100 things you want to achieve or do and sort it into 3 categories (A, B, and C). From the things added to category A you pick the 10 most important of those things and write a short text about why those things are goals to you.

So far I've made the list of 100 things and categorized it. Next step is to pick the 10 most important things in group A. The final list of the 10 things is:

  1. Graduate from some kind of college.
  2. Become good at italian.
  3. Buy a new longboard. DONE!
  4. Find love.
  5. Become healthy.
  6. Find what I want to do with my life.
  7. Learn to live without a SO (significant other).
  8. Be able to run 10km.
  9. Become good at cooking.
  10. Move to a different country.

These are the 10 things that are most important to me, and the things I should focus most of my energy on. The explanations on why they are on this list wont be post on here.

Edit: 1 down 9 to go.
