Happy new year or whatever!

As I usually do, I'm gonna have a look through my old journals and list the highlights of the year for me:

• I became a political activist for a few months, and went to some anti ACTA protests! Not many people showed up in Scotland though. I've kinda lost interest in all of that stuff now, since I'm not a student anymore.

• Went to see Dropkick Murphys. I should go to more gigs.

• Got interested in upcoming technologies like 3D printing, synthetic biology, Mars missions etc, and the idea of a technological Singularity. Still reading a lot of popular science books.

• Some notable games I've played this year: Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, Zelda: Spirit Tracks, Zelda: Minish Cap, Rayman Origins, Fez, Dodonpachi Resurrection, Torchlight, Titan Quest, Kirby: Knightmare in Dreamland, Magicka, World of Goo, Binding of Isaac, Terraria, a ton of Minecraft, and probably a bunch of others which I forgot.

• Graduated from University with an Honors in Computing Science! My final year was easy because I did a Flash game for my final project, and put a lot of effort into picking the easiest subjects.

• Got a bit of a social life. Starting going to pubs often and occasionally to clubs too. Went to my first Ceilidh. Learned to suit up. Trimmed my hair. Still a lot to learn though!

• Started going to technology and business events. They have free food and are sometimes quite educational.

• Got a nice new bedroom/office, and spent a while setting up new furniture. Got a leet new computer and borrowed my brother's TV for a while. My room is actually amazing now.

• Started hosting a lot of gaming parties, mostly for Minecraft and Terraria.

• Parent's house-extension was somewhat finished! And now there's a lot more space for everyone! The place is still a mess though. Still not sure if it's worth moving out or not.

• Learned more about taxes. Had some issues with the IRS. Definitely the worst thing about being an adult.

• Started farming Chili Peppers and some other fruit. Results are still unknown.

• Started getting regular exercise and made some attempt at eating healthier.

• Spent ages working on Epic Battle Fantasy 4, and it's still not finished!

• Learnt the basics of cooking! Like how to cook bacon and eggs. That's about it. I really need to learn more survival skills.

• Took a brief trip to Poland, but otherwise didn't go on any Holidays. That needs to change in 2013.

• My grandmother died and I got to go to my first funeral ever! It wasn't fun.

• Went to see The Hobbit! It's rare for me to care about a movie enough to actually go see it in the cinema.

Anyway, "Finished EBF4 and got mega rich!" should be on there too, but it's taking longer than I thought it would. I never released any games in 2012, how boring.

If you're into science books right now, I recommend "How to Build a Time Machine" and "Flatterland", which is so much better than Flatland.

No games in 2012, wow, I just realized that. Sounds like you had a pretty good year aside from the funeral business, though!

Pft! I can cook only one dish! Anything else I just destroy.

What did you think of The Hobbit? I thought it looked very pretty and was very well done, despite being long and drawn-out.

I thought it was a bit too childish for my tastes.
The serious parts were my favorites, especially the intro with the dragon.

I also wish they tried to fit more content into the movie, instead of leaving so much for the next two films...

Still good though.

My my, an interesting year I see. >u> Sorry if you don't know me, I'm a fan of your games and all. Personally, the thing that peaked my interest in this blog was growing the chili peppers, since I've been growing them myself for the past few years. ^^

Also, I never really designed games myself, but I know that sometimes it takes a while to create them, especially when there's work and school involved as well in your life. I wish you the best of luck on these! Even though I know they'll be amazing. And happy new year! ^u^

My Moruga Scorpion plant died. D:
That's what I get for ordering it in Winter I guess.

My Scotch Bonnet and Habanero plants seem to be doing pretty well though.
I also have a bunch of others which aren't being very interesting yet.
