It’s a thing that I made and I’m very proud of it.
I’m not a programmer. Eight years ago I was pleased with myself because I successfully located the ‘on’ button on the computer. Five years or so ago I thought I was the world’s greatest for learning how to Facebook. I was that person that actively avoided technology because it’s big, scary and too quick for the likes of me. I’m slow and I like things that go slow. Then a couple of years ago, I saw a couple of beginner videos for C# that Bob Tabor had done and thought it looked quite interesting.
Now I prefer coding to writing. Writing is HARD. Coding is too, but I can google a solution to that. I can poke and change, puzzle and test it until it works. I haven’t yet been able to google my way out of a plot hole in a story. Don’t get me wrong, I love writing and I will always write. But still…
Anyways. This thing was a thing I made and it’s so far removed from who I was ten years ago that to me, it’s the greatest thing ever. It’s probably not the greatest game ever made, but it’s one of the greatest things I’ve ever made. It’s not the best thing I can make, it’s not the best that I can do, but it’s a thing that exists because one day I decided to do something that I wasn’t capable of. I’m rambling. I’m not making any sense.
I have cake.
