This week was an important week for me because it marked the one year anniversary of the start of my journey. Last year at this time, I said enough is enough and I set out to pursue game development as a career which then ultimately lead me to building this newsletter, my website and releasing Jock Dummy: one of my first games. I had a few speed bumps along the way, but I'm finally in a place that feels like I am on track to get to where I need to be.
Shortly after recording the video about the start of my journey, I encountered a great loss which made me incredibly depressed for months. For a good while it was an accomplishment just to get out of bed. When I watch this video of myself, it saddens me that I set large goals to follow my dreams, and then almost immediately after, I was doing nothing about it.
