4, Nov 2018 It’s Sunday It has only been over a month but I somehow feel like I have known these people for a long time, and this place for a lifetime. I reconnected this week with Parham, one of the first people I talked to in university, and for some reason did not interactContinue reading “Berlin – Week 6 & 7”
21, Oct 2018 It’s Sunday Unlike the week before, a lot happened this week. Interesting dynamics among friends were observed and shocking new information was revealed. For the sake of their privacy I will not write about this in this blog as it would then be public information and as such not be fair toContinue reading “Berlin – Week 5”
14, Oct 2018 It’s Sunday Not a lot happened this week so this will be short. It’s been a month. That means I now have 41 months left to go before I graduate. This feels weird. I feel like I just got off the plane yesterday but in many ways I also feel like IContinue reading “Berlin – Week 4”
7, Oct 2018 It’s Sunday Another week flew by and just like before a lot has happened. Back home I could not tell you what day it was. I was caught up in an infinite loop of doing the same thing over and over again, my own personal Groundhog Day nightmare. But I was inContinue reading “Berlin – Week 3”
30, Sept 2018 It’s Sunday Another week in Berlin has gone by. Things have changed considerably. I no longer spend all my time cooped up in my room. When I came here there was hardly any one living here but since then every day people are moving in and now it seems full even aContinue reading “Berlin – Week 2”
22, Sept 2018 It’s Sunday, I have now lived an entire week of my life in Berlin. That is the most amount of time I have ever been outside the familiarity and security of my home and my home country. The moment I walked out of Tegel airport I knew things had changed forever. Actually,Continue reading “Berlin – Week 1”
So this is the first time that I am posting on a Sunday like I had assumed when I worked out this new schedule. This being the first week i.e the reading week, I didn’t do much of anything else other than read some of the books from my Want to Read shelf on Goodreads. But before I get into that I would like to say that the reason why I did not post anything the last week of April is because I just didn’t feel like I had anything worth sharing, you know? I spent the entire week on my playstation and just generally staring into empty space. Anyways, here are the books I read this week.
Being a game designer is hard, for you have to religiously invest a bulk of your time in doing two important tasks, playing games and making them.
Since I came up with this new schedule only a couple of days ago I was not able to read as much as I had hoped but still I was able to finish two very short but amazing reads namely ‘The Call of Cthulu by H.P. Lovecraft’ and ‘Guns by Stephen King’ I also read ‘The Art of Game design : A Book of lenses by Jesse Schell’ but that book is more of a bible, in that it is referred to almost every time I design a new game.
So as it turns out trying to write poems and short stories, read a decent amount of books, watch movies, play games and review them also design and prototype my own games all at the same time and retain a shred of my sanity is something that is really hard to do, who knew ?
