So these next three weeks. Yes. I am terrified. Terrified of how AWESOME they are going to be.
That might be a bit of an overstatement. I get two weeks of terror, followed by one week of awesome terror. It balances out.
So if you’re a family member wondering why I haven’t called in the past however-long-it’s-been-since-I-last-called (I’m assuming that’s why you’re reading this), here is why I will be:
February 22-February 28: Working on homework. Polishing up outside projects. Trying to get portfolio, business cards, etc. all prepped for GDC. Getting a little more worried.
March 1-March 8: Full-blown panic. Call whenever you want, because I won’t be sleeping, but in all likelihood I won’t remember where my phone is. Trying to cram three weeks of homework into one, practicing for Screenburn, and still finishing up last-minute portfolio stuff, because that’s how I roll.
March 9-March 13: GDC, from the moment it opens to the moment they kick me out kicking and screaming, and I promptly collapse on the pavement in exhaustion. Did I mention I’m excited about this? True fact. After a week of awesome crazy and CA
mischief HELPING, at 11:15pm Saturday night (right after the afterparty), I catch a plane to Austin.
March 14: Screenburn at SxSW! I probably won’t have slept or fully sobered up, and my presentation will probably be better for it. Massive amounts of excitement and terror!
Heart Gold and Soul Silver also come out this day. I’m debating whether it’s excessive to put a game on hold halfway across the country. Current opinion: no.
Remainder of quarter: Sleep and finals. Nothing else. Well, except Soul Silver.
