I was talking to a game designer recently about what it was like designing games, and how to get into the profession. He gave me a good tip:
This is my personal belief and not all designers may share this view. Your happiness, success, and satisfaction as a game designer is directly proportional to how many smiles-per-minute your game generates from players 🙂 -C.D.
Since I’m smile-y by nature, I really like the idea of spreading the smiles. ^_^

Not blog-wise, but life-wise. I’m feeling pretty good about this year. There were a lot of new experiences in 2007 but 2008 promises to be even better. There are so many things I want to get better at, and so many more things I’ve always wanted to do that I’ve never had the opportunity to do before.
Some things I want to get better at: writing (working with a professional writer now – lots to learn), tennis (thickened my skin to ask a friend to teach me), communicating (practicing by meeting new people), surfing (in Hawaii!)
Things I want to try: self-defense, snow boarding, roller blading/skating, getting outside the office more often
If there’s one thing I learned from last year, it’s to grab an opportunity to do something new, even if you’re a little nervous at first. It always pays off, even if the experience itself is less than stellar. It’s all about how everything adds up, although the small bits that make up the sum do make it interesting.

I was chatting with my BFM earlier. He’s had an emotional year but he still looked at it in a positive light. I remarked how mature he’d become because he thought the fallout he’d had with that girl was a good thing. It made him realize that she hadn’t been a good friend in the first place.
BFM: tayo, nag-away tayo but we became more ok after
(you and I, we fought but we became more okay after)
BFM: friendships like these are the ones worth keeping
Me: naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaks hallmark moment
(awwwwwwww, hallmark moment!)
BFM: don’t you agree?
I admit that having a best friend in another country can be really difficult. Because of the difference in time zones, in places, in culture, we aren’t the same kind of friends we were before just like how we aren’t the same people. There’s been a good amount of drifting apart, naturally, but our friendship isn’t the type that snaps easily. It stretches apart, yes, but it draws back together too.
Also, the Internet helps. MUCHLY.
I’m totally being mushy right now. I’m grateful for the friends I have, here and elsewhere. They’re all really awesome and worth fighting to keep.
