Not being a football person (and not knowing when supwerbowl is anyway), I took up the offer to go skiing with my brother for the superbowl weekend. Technically my second time, but it’s been so long since my first that I pretty much had to learn from scratch. Learning how to ski actually reminds me of learning how to play DDR:
– There’s something specific you’re suppose to learn for each difficulty level, once you learn it, you move on to the next
– Reflex based, to be competent you must move before you think
– Each course has a difficulty ranking
– Once a course begins you cannot stop until it ends
… obviously you don’t fall flat all the time trying to learn DDR, but if you miss your beat it can be just as embarassing.
So to describe my progress in DDR terms I just learned how to do Butterfly basic and I was frolicking over my accomplishment.
But the weekend marks the end of my fun times and now I’m going to be deep in two part-time jobs that require full-time commitments. And then I got an e-mail that pretty much says the other job that I thought isn’t going to pan out, is probably going to pan out afterall. I tried to be cautious about it but then he offered to take me to GDC, all expenses paid.
So my life seems to be heading toward the “full time workaholic” direction without any progress made toward any of my new year resolutions. Joy and jubilation.
