It's the last day of the year again and just like what I did at the end of last year, I'm taking a look back at all the cool stuff I did this year. 2014 was definitely a year of growth in both personal and professional terms.
Well here I am. Another year of life under my belt. I am now 24 years old. It's weird to type that out, let alone actually convincing myself that I am actually 24 years old now. It will take a few weeks to fully settle in but it's nothing I can't handle. To me it seems as though the older I get, the faster time seems to go by. But what's weird about that is that I don't feel like I'm getting older at all.
I do a lot of things. Like seriously. Let's be honest here. I have my hand in tons of different creative outlets and I enjoy doing them all. Really, it's not so much about doing lots of stuff to show off but its more for the sake of just doing things and learning as much as I can because I can. I've said it before, I love learning and I love a good challenge.
One of the best quotes that pretty much sums up my life as a working designer/developer up to this point is "Fake it 'til you make it." For years I've heard this quote being said over and over and thought it sounded funny (and kinda dirty, actually) but I never really paid too much attention to it.
Time is a strange concept to me. It's probably one of the few things I always think about and wonder what the origins of it were. Time to me seems like one of the hardest and most difficult concepts to grasp from a very questionable and expanded point of view. But in the end I just snap out of it and look at my phone to see what time it is.
I'm just going to come out and say it up front; the project you all know and were excited and hopeful about is officially done. Dead. Finished. AetherAeon was the perfect project. The content I had access to was incredible. But at times it did prove to be overwhelming.
It's that time of the year again. No, not the holiday season. I'm talking about me updating this damn site. I really suck at keeping up with these things, let alone with the Kardashians. (Kanye in, Lamar out) But now I'm in that certain mindset that lets me get back to these project that matter most to me. And some of those have been going fairly well up until now.
I'm really excited right now. I feel like I've been reunited with an old friend who has changed quite a bit but is still the same cool buddy I used to spend time with so many years ago. I'm talking about a program here, not a real person. But not just any program. I'm talking about Terragen!
Today's my birthday! Woo!! Cue the marching parade! Cue the festivities! Cue the gun-fire! (although that's a common occurrence given the area I live in) I'm now 23 years old and really, at this point I still don't feel old. That's mainly the fact that really, I'm not old at all. After being 22 for the past year, (which really wasn't my choice), it opened my eyes to the fact that there's so much going on around me.
