Degu Jump: My First Completed Project

Degu Jump: My First Completed Project

This is something I’ve been working on for a while now.  Between lessons in Java and Python, during lunchbreaks and downtime I’ve plugged away at this little game.  All told I would say it took me a bit over twenty hours of work to hack it together.

Remaining Focused

Remaining Focused

As anyone who reads my stuff may have noticed, it has been a while since I posted.  I’ve been pretty busy, lots going on and lots to do and that is where the heart of this post lies.  A problem I’ve had since I graduated university and got healthy and that is a problem of focus. Continue reading →

Making a Game to Get Read

Making a Game to Get Read

I think a lot of people might wonder why I want to learn to program.  It seems like a big jump from working at being an author to working at learning to code, but I don’t think they are as far apart as people think.  Learning to program is also something that is not far removed from things I have been doing for years, from things I have been interested in since I was a kid.

Finding a Reason

Finding a Reason

Finding a reason for what I do is probably the most difficult thing for me.  Difficult because the reasons are not always something easily visible, or even things I think of beforehand.  Difficult because I often forget (or lose sight of) the reason I’m doing something.  I have a lot of things that I take on, different projects and ideas and hobbies I pursue.  Sometimes I get lost in the weeds and end up unable to do anything, sometimes I forget the reason I do anything.  Sometimes it all falls apart and I forget what’s important.
