2nd Blog (Silly little rant)

Where do I stand in life?

Today I was in a "lecture" where at one point they were talking about a person around my age, in which they have a really high paying job, the person was dropped uni and they went to do another course in which lead to a job and went to become something.

At this point, it made me question about what I am doing with my life. I also dropped from uni and now looking for an apprenticeship whilst doing voluntary work, even though we are around the same age, it did make me wonder how hard people try to make a name for themselves.

My main fear of all of this is that I have never done something like this in which I am now responsible for my own future. Even as I type I am always saying to myself "What can I do to make my future a good one?". Even though I don't know what the future holds for me, I do sometimes think that I might not be successful in the future, but in order not to let that happen I will try to do something productive every single day.

Though it is easier said than done, I really need to find the "Why" I am doing all of this...

1st Blog

A brief introduction to this blog
This blog will consists of my experiences as a person who is trying to work for the IT industry, I will update this post whenever I feel like there are things worth noting, for example new experiences and also updates with what I learned relating with computers.

To start off back in 2013 I entered college(or highschool in other parts of the world), for three years I studied IT and how to become a computer games developer. On 2016 I went on to university continuing the path on computer games(Technology), then on 2017 I decided to leave university to find both work and experience.

My list of software that I currently know how to use:
Programming languages:

3D Software:

Game Engine:

Other Software:
Adobe Flash
Adobe Photoshop
Adobe Premier

All of the current software's that are on the lists I learnt from college, At university I was learning how to use the following software's

3D Software:
3DS Max

Game Engine:
Unreal Engine

Programming Language:

Even though I left university, I did learn a little about the software's and how they operate.

To summarise
Have you ever thought about what you really want to do in life? Like really given it a thought and set in stone what you want to be in the future? For me growing up I didn't really think of what I wanted to do in the future, and did not really care for the majority of my life...

When you start to get older you get into a situation where it will be too late and realise you wasted a lot of time thinking and pick an option that you might not even enjoy later on.

I was one of few that wasted enough time thinking on what to do and made a quick decision to just go for it! So without thinking or even realising it, I decided to go for the games development route, I had the attitude of "How hard can it be right?". Well... I the results I wanted in college, but did not have the passion to continue. So I gave it another shot at university!

And now I am here now, as I type this last paragraph telling you(The audience) to really give your future a real thought, if you don't get the results the first time around, make sure you keep trying, you will get there.
