Well, I just dodged one of the biggest bullets of my life today. Yesterday, I discovered that a large sum of money may or may not have been stolen (or someone misplaced it), the CEO was notified, and at least 4 people were fired over it. I was on the tertiary of the event so I was really scared I was going to be fired too, but thankfully that didn't happen.
So far, this has been one of the worst weeks of my life. My anxiety spiked really bad because of the election and I haven't had a good night's sleep for a week straight. I'm also extremely sensitive to bad sleep.
Does anyone else ever feel overwhelmed with the amount of work they have to do? I have a million things I need to rework for my main project Battle Castle (writing, characters, combat, etc), but then I remember I need to look at and possibly re-write my other two projects, one of which already has multiple hours of gameplay, and it's just too much sometimes.
Getting feedback on your games can be painful, but it is TOTALLY WORTH IT. People will catch things you missed, or have totally different viewpoints that you never would have thought of, or was too blinded to see.
There was a large beetle flying around in my brother's room just now. When it got caught, there were tiny bugs crawling all over it, like parasites or mites or something. Maybe it was one of those zombie bugs and it was being mind controlled...
My brain: Hey, I have an idea how to make the transition to the main story quest in The Wastes more natural!
My brain: You need to remake the hotel you start out in, it's not realistic enough.
Me: Ok... This was unexpected, but I can do it.
My brain: Now make each hotel floor 5 times as large to match the main part. Oh, you also need to make a bunch of new npcs to fill in the space on these maps.
"The Great Wall is great. But, most people can only be the slaves who built it, leaving their bones underneath that wall. They spent their whole life to build that wall and the empire, an empire that enslaves them." I'm just going to turn it into a modern-day sad tale.
I don't know about you, but today the covid frustration is seriously getting to me. Haven't really seen many of my friends for two years, since i moved towns the year before this all started, and well, i miss them
so, here's a cute alpacaraptor sketch to heighten the mood:
