Today is a good day.

Since December 2008, I believed myself settled down for good. Having graduated from Computer Programming at college.. a permanant job, a confortable wage, and a promising career in IT was just around the corner.

It’s as if all these months of keyboard bashing have brainwashed me into forgetting my true calling. Now that I think about it, I feel deeply ashamed of myself for ever believing I could stop dreaming at 20 years old.

Since I first understood the concept of computer programming, all I’ve ever wanted to do was make games. The day I picked up my first book on programming BASIC, I was already knee-deep in ideas for original creations. I even remember my first game idea, which I vowed to complete one day.

I suppose this can all be summed up in a few words of advice:
Don’t ever forget your passion. No amount of money will drown it out, and if left unchecked, will come back to bite you in the ass.

Next year, I’m off to the University of Montreal to further my education. Wish me luck.
