Hey there

Work has been tough and keeping me real busy lately. Our game was announced about 2 months ago now, and it's been hectic ever since.

This week our game (Counter-Strike: Global Offensive) is showing in New York at the comicon there and there is going to be alot of high end players there from the cs 1.6 scene taking a gander at it. On top of that ESL is doing a tournament with it and broadcasting it on the intarwebs, so it's been a high pressure week.

We haven't been up to a whole lot. We went to Vegas for a few days about 3 weeks ago, and had a good time. We've been decorating the house for our annual pumpkin carving party, and I've been getting involved in the local import car scene, which has been different but fun.

Since we've lived in Washington, We've completely exited the goth scene altogether. We've been to club twice since moving here, and it doesn't really cross my mind that often. When you are single its one thing, but when you are married and 45 minutes away from the nearest club, it loses its attraction I guess.

I'm incredibly relieved that my game is finally announced, it was tiring to not be able to talk about it after my layoff with SOE last year. I wanted to badly to let everyone know that I "fell" upward and onto a very high profile gig, but I couldn't. Now after all this time, it doesn't seem as important to let everyone know as it did when I was still smarting from the SOE departure. I guess I just wanted everyone, and myself, know that I'm still good at this game design thing. I went from being a pretty well loved designer on a very popular game over to working on something that I couldn't talk about the entire time I worked on it... the laid off from that project, to land on another project I couldn't talk about.

Anyways, Nanowrimo is coming up, and Kelly and I will both be partcipating this year. I want to start over from the story i tried to write last year and approach it correctly this time. I have a rough outline and i'm working on a character list for it. I just want to be prepared enough to just enjoy the process instead of feeling swamped by it.

Anyways, hi LJ land. based on reading my friend's list, not many of you come here anymore. Thats ok though, I like writing in my Journal still, and LJ is that place.

club lost its appeal for us cause life takes over and our priorities changed. time together is more important and every time we went in the past couple of years we found ourselves going home early cause it literally was the same thing, over and over. It's funny how much drama was removed from our lives when we stopped being club regulars too... I don't miss that shit one bit. :)

are you going to be attending NYC comicon??
I won't be ath the NYC event. I have to stay here and respond to player feedback in case we need to make changes to the game build.

wish I was though.
I still come here...just life's been really...hard. So much not great stuff been hapening over here so I lurk and dont post.

FYI Paul and I will be in Seattle next week the 21st through the 25th...We so hope to see you both. After all im draging Trid....
you said a few things that still hit home for me...

1) the goth scene...since i've moved to Massachusetts I've not been to a club :( I don't live near any of the clubs and my club clothes are in storage in san diego. plus its not really the mr's thing. When I first moved here I was so busy with school I did not have time to go out, now that i just finished a few months back the weather is getting colder and I'm not feeling motivated to go. I guess in some ways its as if i exited the scene, although I still wear mostly black, listen to the music etc...

2)I agree with your comments on lj land at the end of your post. I don't see others write that often, I think they post more on face book, but I still prefer LJ and write when I can / when I feel the urge.
